Dezmond, if I referred to them as 'The Taylii', would that make my point valid?

Starting on Monday, December 1st, we will begin the process of re-ranking the Performers that have been inducted into the Projected / Re-Visited Project over on the Rock Rankings messageboard (http://www.futurerocklegends.com/Revisited_Projected_Rankings.php). We will be re-ranking the Performers every two years to account for the past two years inductee classes.

Anyone who is interested can participate in this process. Here's how the process will work:

Round 1 Nominations will open on December 1st (the same time as the Song Project and Album Project). Each voter can nominate 100 performers from the list of 312 performers that have been voted into the Projected / Re-Visited Project. We haven't determined if voters will be required to nominate 100 performers or if a minimum number of nominees for Round 1 will be required (in case someone tries to nominate one performer to give them a better chance of being ranked). Round 1 Nominations will end at 10 PM Central on Saturday the 6th.

The 20-25 performers that receive the most nominations will be involved in a two-day initial ranking vote, where voters will rank the top 15-20 eligible performers of their preference to determine the top 10 performers in the rankings. This process will end at 10 PM Central on Monday the 8th.

The 10 performers (or more in the event of a tie for 10th) that finish highest in the initial rankings will advance to the final rankings. In the final rankings, voters will rank all 10 performers in their order of preference. The combined rankings will be the final rankings of the top 10 performers. If you've never participated in a ranking or induction project before, you'll need to participate in one (or attempt to participate in one) before your vote in a final ranking will be counted in any round.

In the event of a tie in the final rankings, the first tiebreaker will be the performer's score in that round's initial rankings. The second tiebreaker will be a higher ranking tiebreaker from that round's final rankings (which performer did each voter rank higher). The third tiebreaker will be a higher ranking tiebreaker from that round's initial rankings. The final tiebreaker will be the performer's rankings in the 2012-2013 Performer rankings. If two newly-added performers end up in an unbreakable tie, we'll have a straight-up tiebreaker vote to resolve the tie after the conclusion of all rounds of ranking in the project.

The final ranking vote will end at 10 PM Central on Wednesday the 10th.

Round 2 Nominations will be from Wednesday the 10th until Saturday the 13th. Performer nominations for Performers that haven't been ranked will carry over from round to round. Each voter will only need to replace their nominees after they have been ranked. Voters can rescind one of their previous nominations in order to nominate additional performers if they like, but otherwise nominated performers will stay nominated until ranked.

When we can (Christmas will throw a wrench in the schedule), we'll stick to the Saturday, Monday, Wednesday one-week schedule for each round.

Starting in Round 2, we'll rank 15 performers (#11-#25) until we finish ranking the Top 100. Starting with #101, we'll either rank 20 or 25 performers per round until all 312 performers have been ranked.
