Filmspotters' Top 100 Directors
« on: November 13, 2008, 12:37:04 AM »
Let's do this!

PM me your Top 20 Directors Lists, ranked 1 to 20, and feel free to post them here too. The lists will be due in by the 28th of November (that's a Friday) and I'll do the grand unveiling of the list on Monday, the 1st of December. I think that'll be a good way to start off the new month. Yay!




Update: So here is how the mathematics is going to work. A director ranked #20 will receive 11 points, and #19 will get 12 points, and #18 will get 13 points, and so on until #1 which gets 30 points. This way a director ranked low on lists still gets points, and directors that get ranked highly gets more points. This way a director that isn't high on many lists, but on a few is ranked #1 or close to it won't steal the show. It effectively makes the points system a graduated one where a #1 ranked director has about 2.7 times more influence than a #20 ranked director. The influence grows steadily less and less the lower the rank. And while 2.7 times the influence doesn't seem like much, it adds up. It also means that if a director appears on only one list but is at #1 that ranking is influential, but a director appearing on three lists at #20 will outrank the sole #1 ranking. If I'm right this will be the list most accurately representing the voice of the Filmspotters. If you have any concerns or feel the margin of influence should be greater than 2.7 than please let me know.

Why are you copying me?  You know I already called dibs.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Wassup! Let's put our game face on.

Okay. So the first order of business is I need somebody to help me figure out how to do the math for a weighted list.

This seems like the logical next thing.  What do you all think?  I'm all over it!
