That's a different set of polls. Best to ask in the 1933 results thread, because I don't think the hosts of those polls check this thread regularly. I assume 1950 will be some time in June and 2020 some time in July, but I don't know for sure.

I'll start the <400 poll the first week of August. I'm pretty sure I'll be good to do it, but I'd like to have someone back me up if I get overwhelmed since late September is quite a ways away. Let me know if you're willing to do so.

Yes, but the two big polls get a slightly longer lead time for voters to post lists.

Hmm group votes is possible... I has some experimental ideas problems with them last time 🤔
Can you share the last pool Google sheet or excel PA so I can take a look?

Sure I'll PM you tomorrow. I do them "manually" by calculating the average for the group then filling down. It's not a hard thing to automate, but not enough people group vote to make it worth setting up the conditions for it.

For the other pool I made with grouped votes... There was maybe 4 or 5 people with grouped. I concatenate all the votes and do all the computation on that sheet.
Even being extra careful... I made one or 2 mistakes... Catching only one of the 2 before starting the results thread...
I hate when someone asks where is his vote or that he votes #56 and not #53 on a film.
We should definitely consider working on a global solution for the grouped... This way we could even allow grouped on every pool.

It's even worse for this poll because people often submit ineligible films, so you have to flag the groups first, then filter out the ineligible films, then renumber, then assign points while keeping track of the old cutoffs.

It's not too bad if you do things in order, I have a text file with all the steps for myself so I don't forget anything. The key thing is using flags and markers that you can resort the sheet on to check. My mistakes happen from mislabeling a list, but I've never had an issue with the actual calculations.

Yeah, that would actually be a big help. I appreciate it. I don't know if it's the work itself or just the mental context but I find the initial work of doing that more daunting than sorting out the spreadsheet and posting results, even though the latter take more time.

Color me surprised since I checked every film's status on ICM. A few of them were close to 400 and might have gotten over it since I posted my list, but 7 ? :blink:
