    Default the 7th tier

    We're picking some works to promote from from the 7th tier of the Talk Classical community's favorite and most highly recommended works.

    We'll move 7 of these works up to the 6th tier. In the event of ties, we will promote as near to 7 as possible.

    Have fun! Also, please be considerate! Someone, hopefully, will be influenced by our selections!

    It depends on what you mean. You can vote once, but you can select as many as you want.

    Nope! The top works were moved up to the 6th tier.

    I usually report the results on the main thread rather than in the voting threads because, in order to avoid confusion, I don't want to bump the old voting threads.

    I planned to move up "as near to [seven works] as possible" because of the balance of works on the surrounding tiers (trying to even things out). You can see a count of how many works are on each tier here, and if you can figure out my codes then you can see how I'm selecting how many works to move up. The key column is the "Target" column highlighted in green. I'm trying to get each tier closer to that target, which is selected largely so that the "Target totals" (column M) land on a number that might be significant to someone. It's an inexact science -- not least because I can't predict how we're going to vote!

    So in this round I was looking to move up 7 works. After we voted, five works had 8, 9, or 10 votes, and five more works had 7 votes. So I had to choose between moving up five works or ten works, and since five is closer to seven, I moved up five. (If I had to choose between 5 or 9, which are equidistant from 7, I would've moved up 9, because we might as well move up more rather than less so that more people are happy with the results.)
