    Someone did this last year, so I thought I’d start it up again. This will be the GoldDerby equivalent of the preferential ballot system used by Oscar voters to determine Best Picture. Rank your choices 1 to 8, but please don’t rank any you haven’t seen. (I know some Oscar voters do this, but we’re better than that, aren’t we?) Oscar final voting started yesterday, so I’ll draw the deadline one day after theirs, which is Tues 17th Feb. So our deadline will be 23:59 GMT on Wed 18th Feb (I live in UK, so I have to go by my time zone otherwise I’ll be up all night, but it’ll be 7pm ET).

    After the deadline I’ll tally the 1st place votes and if one film hasn’t received more than 50% of 1st place votes, I’ll eliminate the film with the least amount of 1st place votes, reallocate their 2nd choices to 1st and count the ballots again. This process will repeat until one film receives over 50% of 1st place votes.

    Please only vote if you were already a member before this poll started (7th February). If you like you can give a brief explanation for your ranking, but keep it swift, no more than four or five lines. Don’t post anything unless you’re voting, so I don’t have to filter through clutter when collecting votes. Also, please don’t quote anyone’s post on this thread, or at least their ranking, because then I might accidentally count it twice.

    Many thanks and please get voting! 

    (Also lol that this exactly my 800th post!) 

    EDIT: Forgot to mention, after I’ve collected votes I’ll post the full results of each round of tallying, showing which order the films are eliminated.
