I hadn't seen this thread before today, I wish I had.

I was shocked  to see The Sorrow and the Pity and Triumph of the Will missing from that list.

Ok, I'm officially done accepting ratings. We got 24 people to rate films. Because of ties (which are fairly common given the way the scoring is produced) there are 101 films on the list. Proof that the list is an authentic depiction of the forum's views and that I did not tamper with the results is that I'm not very pleased with the results. You people are a bunch of hipsters. :P

One film was seen by everyone. Three films from the shortlist was seen by no one who participated in phase 2 (so it goes without saying they aren't on the final list). Of the top-100, one film (barely) made it with just 2 (perfect) votes, so I think the weighted average system worked pretty well at balancing popularity and visibility.

I'm gonna start working on the list presentation this weekend and hope for an chat announcement toward the end of the month. Thanks to everyone who participated in either or both phases. Once the whole thing is done we'll be looking into feedback on how you like this system of list making.

I love a good documentary, but didnt find the urge to mow down a ton of them prior to voting. Watched a half dozen or so before the shortlist then lost steam (and went to watch about 30 film noirs  :) )

The "not pleased with the results" comment has me intrigued.
