List: Your Top Albums ov 2000 Revealed
The results are in for your fave albums from 2000. Get in and get mad about it here.
A few weeks ago we decided to take a look back at the years before the site existed to see what you flushers deemed to be the top metal albums from that accursed time. Starting with 2013, we polled across both the Toilet ov Hell Social Club and through Disqus, which led to some fairly similar results overall with a few albums only making an appearance on one of the forums. However, using an advanced technique I’ve dubbed Social Media Ranking Tyranny (SMRT), the discrepancies between the two have been ironed-out and a definitive ‘best of’ list has been extrapolated.
Why didn’t we just use the results from one platform?
I started this in our fb group for a bit of fun, not thinking it would evolve into blog content. Mainly though, it’s due to a reasonable proportion of our community using fb but not disqus, while some use disqus but not fb.
Why didn’t we just tally the total number of votes?
A fair number of people also use both platforms, so if we used this method the results would skew harder towards their faves as they’d effectively have had double the votes relative to others.
So in the end we had to devise a fairer system which relied predominantly on a ranked average position across both lists. Make sure you shit your pants over it though, it’s very important stuff.
Some random observations I made while compiling the votes:
- the #1 album convincingly crushed both polls
- the Disqus crowd loved the Immortal, In Flames, Crowbar, and Linkin Park albums wayy more than FB,
- while they didn’t share FB’s love for this year’s Ulver and Extol records at all
- there seemed to be a noticeably lower voter turnout on Disqus than FB which may slightly skew overall results towards the former.
