Hello and welcome to the reverse ranking, thread #2. For those of you just joining us, here's what's happened so far:

* I asked board users to nominate a game, and from that game nominate five songs.
* I compiled a list of those songs.
* I copy-pasted that list five times, and then shook them up in a blender in a quasi-random fashion.

And now, we're going to get the board to perform a collective effort to rank those songs. The idea is pretty simple, and yet not at the same time. I ask people to sign up for a "block" of 5 songs from the list, and then rank then 1-5, with 5 being highest and 1 being lowest.

After those helping me complete the ranking finish their block, they are welcome (and strongly encouraged) to sign up for a second group. When all the blocks are completed, and every song has been included in five such lists, we will be done and we'll see who the winners are. If you did not nominate, you are still welcome to help rank. Even taking a single block can be a big help, since we do have 75 to cover.

Master information for this project is listed here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-4vvcT_Rzvp0npqA_OniySaMIShANCYmBAiDFNXN5mo/edit#gid=1056661345

To participate:
1. Ask me for a block. I will assign you a rotation, and then a block from the list below.
2. Find the 5 songs that belong to that block, using the master list. For instance, block 101 has songs, which are 33, 1, 44, 12, 55. On the master list, those correspond to Spathi Theme, D:OS2 Main Theme, The March of Time, Looking Up at the Sky, and Defunktorum.
3. Rank them and report back, assigning them values from 5 (high) to 1 (low). Song comments are welcome.

You must assign the songs as +5 thru +1. Yes, this will mean that you might get a really crapola block and give a bad song +4, or you might get an amazing one and give a fantastic song a +1. Ideally, we would do enough loops that this variance would gradually cancel out, but I've found in the past that five is about the most we can usually manage.

When you report your scores, please tell me if you want another block so I can assign you one. (It will be from the same rotation so you do not get a repeat song.)

Wait, I still don't understand...
Okay, click on the spreadsheet and click on the tab at the bottom for Rotation 1. As you can see, the first group of songs (which is block 101) has been assigned to me. I even ranked them already! However, while I was doing that, somebody named not_azuarc came along and claimed the second block. While that impostor who is totally not me ranks that set of five songs (which is block 102), I claimed the group after that. As you can see, neither me nor not_azuarc have yet turned in our rankings for those sets. However, when I...er, I mean, um...we do, either one of us will be free to claim the fourth batch.

The two of us, plus maybe any other parties who hop onto that rotation, will keep going until we exhaust the list. Thing is, there are five lists, which are what I'm calling rotations. All five of them need to get completed in order for the project to finish.

If THAT doesn't clear everything up, then ask.

If you truly understand and want to help me out a bit...
This project is a lot of data entry. You are welcome to put your results into the spreadsheet yourself. The tabs for rotations 1 thru 5 are unlocked and can be edited by anyone. You can even claim the next block in your rotation yourself if you're confident you know what you're doing. (Also post in the thread like everyone else.) But please, only do this if you know what's going on. I'll weather the carpal tunnel syndrome if I have to.

And now, time for some administrative mumbo-jumbo...

Still don't fully get the details, but if I just have to rank songs then I can't really screw it up. Give me a block, please.
