iCM Forums' Favourite Films on Zero Official Lists

Image

Halflife of 50 was used for this poll, instead of 25 like last time, since the lists submitted were longer than the previous round.

Thanks to everyone who submitted a list; there are 7 more participants this time.

Top 250 on icm
Top 1000 on icm

Top 250 on imdb
Top 1000 on imdb (Top 750 for now; imdb is being naughty and listhelper is misbehaving by creating multiple entries)

Here's the first batch of runners up.

You'll notice that most films will rise in place simply because many of the top films from the previous version are now official.

REDACTED until I figure out what's wrong and fix the error.


All is good. Results coming up in a new post.

Hold up. Just realized that my own list isn't showing up in the results. :facepalm:

Not sure what happened. I'll recalculate and doublecheck that everyone else's lists are there too. This is what I get for doing this when I'm tired. For now, though, I'm off to bed. :pinch:

Edit: Okay, the filmcounter script is missing a lot of lists. Not sure what's going wrong. Am I using the wrong file (attached)?

Edit 2: Okay, yes, it's the wrong file. Found the new one from mjf in the scripts thread.

When I ran the comedy poll (and also did most things manually), and deleted things within someone's list in excel, those 'perturbed' lists wouldn't show up in the final results. I'm just mentioning, since you did concern yourself with TV series at one point and maybe decided to delete stuff. My list isn't showing up in the results either.

3395 fewer films is really dodgy, especially since PdA voted for about 3380.

Yeah, figured it out. Using the wrong java file.

I only edited one person's list, but I did that in text edit, which keeps the csv file's integrity and doesn't affect the scripts.

As for the TV series, I realized most of them are mini-series and just improperly labelled, so I left them all in. Anyone who removed them from their list after, I just used the original list that I had already downloaded.

I'm so intrigued to watch these results unfold. Definitely the least predictable poll I've been a part of.

I don't see "unranked" next to my name in the participants list, and I did clearly say "Unranked" when I posted my list in the nominations thread (here: http://www.icmforum.com/single/?p=10127812&t=10394755). Hopefully you included my list as being unranked and just forgot to put that next to my name.

Actually, my whole list is ranked. All I said was that I wasn't going to fine-tune the ranking of my films beyond the 100 point due to the uncannily low half-life that you were considering using.

Speaking of which, I don't suppose it makes that much difference if my 101-250 is ranked or unranked, does it? With such a low half-life, that is. I mean, it would seem a shame for you to have to start again, but then again, you still haven't really gotten started...

You're right. Not sure how I missed that. Easily rectified, though; your list is now unranked in the files.

Sorry, it wasn't clear from your post. I'll change your list to fully ranked.

Okay, here it goes again. Testing the results out on some runners up, to make sure that I didn't mess up anything since the filmcounter is being thrown out of whack due to the latest round of imdb changes, thus I had to do more manual adjustments than normal, which always leaves more room for error.

This list will be a Top 250, just like last time. I'll start posting the runners up from 300-251 (without screenshots) just to make sure that everything is smooth. That way, if I messed up someone's list, or something went wrong, I'll have time to fix it before the real results begin. Plus, I really like some of the films that just missed the cut :D

Changes are from the last time the list was run in July 2015 (from the entire results, not just the Top 250). If you notice anything incorrect or inconsistent, please let me know. Thanks everyone for your contributions and patience!

Not sure how it decides which name to list first; it's neither alphabetical or descending order :shrug:

Also, based on the results thus far, how are people with the halflife? This is something I never seem to grasp: which halflife to use.

I think it's based on the order the lists are uploaded, i.e. whoever submitted their ballot first.

If you're able to change it, I would prefer to have names listed in order of whoever gave the film the most points. Anarchy always does this when he posts results (not sure how).

As far as I understand it (which might be wrong), higher half-lives provide more points to films further down the list. Which would seem to make sense if most folks' lists are as large as mine. Then again, I suppose it evens out since all lists are weighted in the same manner, no matter which half-life is used.

Actually, if anybody cares to provide one, I would be curious to see a breakdown of points awarded to #1, #2, #5, #10, #20, #50 and #100 listed films for various sample half-lives.

Good guess. I just checked, and the order doesn't seem to be based on either when the lists were downloaded, nor when they were last modified. No idea how to change it, though.

I think I can pull this together. I remember doing it for another poll. Gimme 30 minutes or so. :D

What's the average list length?
You can get that fastest with the sum of the column "votes" divided by number of participants.

Done for halflifes 10, 20, 30, 40, 50. The one with 10 is the one declining the fastest.

How did you do that? :wub:

I just did it all manually lol.

Attached is an image of list lengths, including mean, median, and mode (excluding PdA's list, since it's 3380 entries and would skew the data)
mean 142.8225806
median 100
mode 100

As for half-lives, I just did a comparison of 25, 50, 75, and 100. Given the lists are on average quite long compared to other polls I've run, I don't think a half-life less than 25 makes sense.

Half-life Comparison (Points)
RankHL 100HL 75HL 50HL 25
1100100100100
1093.95292.01988.27077.916
2684.09079.37070.71150.000
5170.71162.99650.00025.000
7659.46050.00035.35512.500
10150.00039.68525.0006.250
15035.60125.23212.6741.606


Based on this, I would actually lean toward a half-life of 50 or 75.

Interesting image, though of course my list contains 250 films - not 50 films. :ermm:

Really interesting data, guys. Sorry, I'd chat more but it's late and I need to get up in 6 hours or something crazy like that. :wacko:

P.S.: Yes on 75 HL.

I'd go lower than 50 on the halflife given what you've posted.

Looked at the distribution, I'd go with 40, but 50 would be ok too, bit on the high end. That distribution is more skewed than usual which makes it harder to find a fair value. Normally the outliers on the end aren't so far away from the average and even the 3rd quartile

How do you determine this? Just gut feeling?
Roughly one third of the average list length is what we mostly use.

Looked at the distribution, I'd go with 40, but 50 would be ok too, bit on the high end. That distribution is more skewed than usual which makes it harder to find a fair value. Normally the outliers on the end aren't so far away from the average and even the 3rd quartile
Okay, thanks. I'll keep these points in mind for next time. And I guess I should start with that analysis first to avoid doing unnecessary/repetitive work, lol.

Yay! I'm glad that I went back and pushed it a few places higher up on my list.

Oh, I wasn't expecting The Devil and Miss Jones to show up. Pleasantly surprised ^_^ Also wasn't expecting Under the Cherry Blossoms to be less than a point away from making the list. Beautiful cinematography in that film.

Cecil B. DeMented :wub:

I'm surprised we are the only two. Hopefully a few people will spot our high rankings and look up the film - an incredible experience.

Which would seem to make sense if most folks' lists are as large as mine. Then again, I suppose it evens out since all lists are weighted in the same manner, no matter which half-life is used.

Actually, if anybody cares to provide one, I would be curious to see a breakdown of points awarded to #1, #2, #5, #10, #20, #50 and #100 listed films for various sample half-lives.
I think I can pull this together. I remember doing it for another poll. Gimme 30 minutes or so. :D
Here you go:

Image

x-axis = rank
y-axis = points received

Done for halflifes 10, 20, 30, 40, 50. The one with 10 is the one declining the fastest.

You want to see other halflifes?
Thanks for the graph. Makes it more comprehensible.

Btw, I think it’s best for consistency to use the same half-life in repeated polls. A movie in an unchanged user list should receive the same points every time.

In general I would agree, which is why I started with a 25 half-life this time. But, as polls grow ever larger with more participants creating longer lists, the half-life should grow with it. It's like raising the benchmark each year; we don't expect our lists to be static and never improve, so we shouldn't expect that of our results either, otherwise there is no incentive, imo. I think strict consistency only makes sense when you have the same people submitting slightly updated versions of the same list on a regular basis (like the annual favourites poll), but for less regular lists it's better to adjust to the needs of each round.
