    Alright, so I’ve got a proposal, and it’s one that can be totally ignored but I think it would really be beneficial to the project. How about placing the voting threads in the main Classical Music Discussion forum rather than Polls and Games? There’s honestly only about 15 people who routinely visit the games section and vote, so that’s hardly representative of the Talk Classical Community. I think a lot of people honestly don’t even know about the existence of this amazing project because of this, and I have a feeling that they would gladly participate if they did, not to mention the fact that it would then truly be a good sample of the community that was voting rather than just the same 15-20 members every time. I’m sure you have a rationale for not doing this, but just offering a suggestion

    Thank you for that suggestion.

    I've definitely thought about it, and maybe I'll do that someday, but the main consideration is that there are people who don't like anything like this, regardless of whether we call it a game or a poll or a project or anything else, and for now they can avoid them simply by not going to that sub-forum. If we do the threads in the main forum, they'll have to see them, and I anticipate that there'll be considerably more sturm und drang over this than we've already seen -- especially if we do more than two or three threads at a time. In the polls sub-forum it's no problem even to have seven or eight going at once, but that certainly wouldn't be tolerated on the main board.

    The reverse is also true. I can't speak for anyone, so of course I may be wrong about this, but it seems to me that some of the people who are active in the polls sub-forum feel a kind of camaraderie there, and so some people might be disappointed if we stopped doing our threads there.

    Weighing it all up, I think you're right that doing the threads in the polls sub-forum probably means we have less participation, but at least for now it seems to me that it is the right public relations approach.

    My compromise measures have been to put this thread on the main board, and to encourage people to make reference threads here and in other sub-fora (like the opera sub-forum). Hopefully that will enable at least a few more people who would like to participate to find out about it.

    This has been going on (in various forms) for over ten years now, and I dare to hope it will go on at least as long again. (To be honest, I'd even like to think that if something unfortunate happened to me so that I were unable to continue creating the threads and editing the document, someone else would take it up.) Over that time we've had ... perhaps hundreds (?) ... of participants, and so I hope we'll have hundreds more, perhaps not all at once but over the long term.

    Although I admire your concern for members who are offended by looking at thread titles that don't sit well with them, I don't share it at all.

    In about a week we'll start a new cycle on the 2nd tier, and a few days after that we'll do the third tier. Maybe we'll do those two on the main board just for fun. Get some controversy going. But even if we do that, we'll do the fourth and lower tiers on the polls sub-forum.
