The aim of this project is to compile a list of works written after 1950 that are most recommended by TC members.

Procedure:
You may vote every 9 hours.
Votes should be in the following format:
After (last poster)
(work 1) / (work 2)
(updated board)


The first work voted for receives two points, and the second receives one point.
The first time a work is voted for, it is added to the nominated list along with the number of points and the name of the poster who nominated it. When someone else (not the person who originally nominated the work) votes for it, the work is moved to the seconded list. You may once again vote for a work you originally nominated once it has been seconded.

When the most popular work has 7 points more than the next-highest scoring, it is removed from the board and added to the list of nominated works.*

For example, a vote might look like this:

After (someone)
Beethoven / Bach

Nominated:
Beethoven: Symphony No. 9 - 2 - MoonlightSonata
Bach: Well-Tempered Clavier - 1 - MoonlightSonata

Seconded:
The next vote might look like this:
After MoonlightSonata:
Stravinsky / Bach (seconded)

Nominated:
Beethoven: Symphony No. 9 - 2 - MoonlightSonata
Stravinsky: Rite of Spring - 2 - (someone)

Seconded:
Bach: Well Tempered Clavier - 2
A member can have no more than four works nominated on the board at any one time.

Thank you all for your support.

After works become enshrined, the list will be updated in a Google doc. Members can add to this list once a new work is enshrined.

*Works may not be enshrined if 50% or more of the vote count has been added by a single voter.

Moonlight Sonata, my apologies! I nominated Shostakovich's Violin Concerto #1, which was actually written before 1950. I'd like to change this to his Cello Concerto #1, written comfortably later. Can you please make the correction? Thanks!

"This is very challenging on my iPad mini."

We play these games on another forum, and people with cell phones of iPads will often just register their votes and ask that somebody else update the list. That works well without problem.

I'll have a stab today but at the moment an analysis of proportional representation voting systems would make more sense to me!
