The Board 8's Top 100 Music Artists/Bands Project is a project made by Maplejet 8 to show which bands are popular on board 8. Voting took place in November and the bands/artists are currently being revealed in December.

Voting FormatEdit

PHASE 1 consisted of people posting their top 10-15 bands/artists. They were given points based on their placement and the amount of bands posted (1st place would take in 10 pts, 2nd place 9 pts, 3rd place 8 pts, etc...for a list that had 10 artists while first place took in 15 pts, 2nd place 14 pts, etc...for lists that had 15 artists). The band listed in 1st place on their list received 5 bonus points while 2nd place received 2 bonus points.

PHASE 2 was by genres (Pop, Rock/Alternative, Metal, Punk/Ska, Hip-Hop/Rap, Jazz/Funk, Soul, R&B, Folk, Classical/Orchestra, Electronic/Techno, and Other). Users listed up to 4 bands/artists in each genre (doing at least 3 genres, though not necessarily filling them up entirely). Bands were given 8, 6, 4, and 2 pts based on placement in each genre.

PHASE 3 was by time periods (Before 1960s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s). Users once again listed up to 4 bands/artists in each time period with scoring exactly the same as in phase 2.

Early DisputesEdit

There were a few issues early with voting. Phase 1 consisted of a group of users posting identical lists to the list for icon ownz all. Most of those lists were thrown out with a few users switching their lists to avoid disqualifications. Also, genre choices were disputed. Originally, the genres for the project included Rock/Alternative, Metal, Pop, Rap/Hip-Hop, Electronic, and ohter, but was increased to allow diversity. However, it's most likely believed that the Rock/Alternative group needed to be chopped down a little as many bands suffered SFF during phase 2.

WriteupsEdit

Most of the writeups were done by me with others contributing. This was so that we could hear from fans themselves on why they enjoy the bands. So far, contributors include:

the icon ownz all - Tom Waits, Fiery Furnaces
SF_Clowns - Robbie Williams, Stabbing Westward, Third Eye Blind
DOEY9992 - Genesis, Coheed and Cambria, Yes
Cokes - The Arcade Fire, Beck
Angsty Lou - Foo Fighters, Ben Folds
neonreaper - Faith No More
CycloReaper - Blink 182
Strife - Black Sabbath
guilty sparks - Rush
RayDyn - Dropkick Murphys, The Clash
GanonNess - The Offspring
Not_1 - Meat Loaf
Shadulin - Sonata Arctica
igordebraga - The Beatles, Guns N' Roses, Nirvana
SteinerShocker - Machinae Supremacy
KleenexTissue - Nobuo Uematsu

Disputes During the RevealEdit

As the bands were being revealed, one band "Machinae Supremacy" was not included originally. The tally was written on an excel file and for some odd reason, they weren't included. During the reveal in the #41-#50, the mistake was determined and MS was re-added and placed in the #41-#50. ANother dispute showed a mispelling on the band for a few lists, and once this was fixed, MS went up and broke #35-#40. Liquid Tension Experiment was moved to #101 and still honored as it was already revealed and was not fair to ommit them.
