    Response to Goo:



    Well Goo, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't biased. Just like anyone would say, buddy boy. But I'd wager any such claims of misbehavior are premature, as I only count the votes.

    Tell me you can't say this board has a DLR bias on it. *waits* You can't, because it does. If you post the same survey on a different board the vote totals will be different - it all depends on who is here. So I don't see the harm in advertising. The more fans, the more average the result. It's a statistical fact.

    Besides, if I really wanted to adjust the results, I'd adjust the results or vote more than once under a different name. The results here are the results of last thread's voting. I'll even post the number of votes each got so you can count to check. You'll find no adjustment of the results.

    So here are the results:

    IASR (7) vs LUTS (12)
    EWS!! (7) vs LG (12)
    MS (8) vs UC (11)
    HB (12) vs GGB (7)

    HAL (11) vs WCTBL (8)
    Dreams (7) vs 5150 (12)
    AS (5) vs DM (14)
    RWTD (6) vs DTNA (13)

    This means round 2 is:

    Bracket 1
    Light Up The Sky <-> Little Guitars
    Unchained <-> Humans Being

    Bracket 2
    Hear About it Later <-> 5150
    Dirty Movies <-> Dance the Night Away

    Hell, no Stuff - your opinion does count. And as far as inviting people to come vote - the more the merrier. The exception was taken, I believe at what was perceived as you telling them how to vote and why you wanted them to vote. Anyhow...

    "Little Guitars"
    "Unchained"
    "Hear About It Later"
    "Dance The Night Away"

    Interesting that nothing from Van Halen or 1984 made it this far!

    Well, man, I spent a few hours thinking about it and have mellowed. Damage is done, but I reworded my message over on the SHND.
    http://pub29.ezboard.com/fsammyhagar...picID=96.topic

    Pardon my damn human passions and zealousness if you can [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    ANYWAY, let's try and finish this thing out on the level. The current contenders are properly chosen by board members from last week - I don't have any damage to fix there. And Goo, the PM I sent you was written after the post above. Take it with a grain of salt.

    stuff, you're vote counts for sure. i think everyone here wants you to vote. of course everyone has a bias. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] that's why no one will ever know the absolute best van halen song, but just the most popular here. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
    besides, the best van halen song isn't even on here... (me wise magic) [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Just a clarification guys :-

    I never intended to give the impression SNM was doing anything to the totals, or anything significantly untoward at all as far as rigging things - It was more a case of I felt that as the orginiser it was a 'bit off' to rally a specific group up to the point of instructing them how to vote to achieve a specific result - as Billy007 picked up.

    If it was anyone else I wouldnt have blinked twice, but from the judge, I took some exception - and also probably overreacted, and I apologise for that [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

    Anyways, I'll rejoin the voting at this point and help get this back on track [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Okay, okay, since Goo and I have made up I think things are cool again.

    I'll tell you something though - I don't really consider myself a "judge" anymore. Nominations round, yeah, but anymore this thing just runs itself, you know? Anybody with an abacus can add up votes [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Anyway, since people have said to go ahead and drop my 2 cents in, I'll pick

    Little Guitars
    Humans Being (gibberish and all [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img])
    5150
    Dance the Night Away

    And I'll also say it seems we have some real dominant songs this round. Almost every race is pretty one-sided.
