irishguy28 has already posted a very convincing defence.......but this is an issue that may affect others who update their charts on Sundays too.
In "Week 2", Jack's chart was actually the very last
one updated before I did the compilation - so I used that, as it was his most recent. Looking back, it would appear that this was two weeks on from the one that went into "Week 1". However, that was still the most current chart at the time of this week's compilation - as Jack became one of the first to post a new chart later
in the day. Not the
first, though - in the intervening 3 hours amd 18 minutes, Thriller, Flocon and mostfierce2009 were all already in with new updates! All of these will go into next
week's combined chart - unless, of course, any of them are updated again before then.
However, what I could alternatively do is, impose a more precise cut-off point, to apply every week - say, midnight (UK time) as Saturday becomes Sunday? Then personal charts posted after that point would all count towards the next week - and this would mean that those who update their charts every Sunday, at variable times, could be sure that each one would be reflected in a different week of the UKmixParade? It probably doesn't directly affect very many contributors - but has anyone any views on this?
