but it didn't include his two newest albums and I didn't vote in it :cry: there should be one more proper one as a goodbye

but i wouldn't object to any artist countdown tbh. i'd even vote in a Mariah one

I will be delaying my Ultimate Favourite Female Acts countdown by a couple of months as it would be pointless to run concurrently with Dustin's countdown.

Will probably start it late summer.

I also think we only need one countdown running at a time (that includes voting and results). Exception would be if somebody took their sweet time posting the results and it ended up going on for months. But otherwise, I don't see the need to rush a very short queue and have concurrent countdowns. (That's why I didn't tell you to start the Aus one Affiliate) :oops:

I was going off the prior 'down to it's top 10' rule/suggestion (even though I've waited until Dance was finished for a week or so before springing up the Aus/NZ one) :P

I'm also getting better at not dragging it on by reducing some of the at times more painstaking aspects of my 2 previous countdowns (locating who gave what points, stitching together long-ass blurbs etc). Eurovision should be over by the time my new one closes voting and starts posting results if Sholasboy gets a move on from his current stall (only 36 to go). :)

Going to be adjusting my collage method slightly from #80... Bit Less mucking around with editing then (been having to crop and resize, plus photo bucket can really lag on my computer at times (needs an upgrade). ;) next update should be coming tonight. :)

Thanks for that index too Benny btw, great work. :)

Dustin is currently moving at pace with his countdown, I think I'll either start my Ultimate Female Acts countdown in early October with a view to finishing it during December [Christmas themed] or wait until the New Year.

Open to any views if anyone has them [except for CrazyCrazy :lol:]!

- Try to include some obscurer picks for the song choices [with links!], including albums (providing they are good obscurities).
- Better graphical design (the last one was a nice idea but wasn't very easy on the eyes particularly regarding the text and mainly on the 2nd style you used).
- Let someone co-work on the countdown with you, if you need help with song ideas, graphical ideas, someone to fill in on host duties.
- Let me do it.

I will not take a 2nd host - respectfully, I devote an awful lot of time to this countdown and I've built it into the biggest countdown we have and the credit goes solely to me. :lol: :lol:

Take on board your advice about graphics - the issue is not the graphics but the internet image hosts; I always save in a HQ format but the hosts seem to massively reduce quality. Will look into a solution.

I'm thinking of maybe having a bit of a gap.

Will see - don't want to overload UKMIX!

In gonna unpin the Eurovision and Australia countdowns. Making the forum look untidy, and with the female countdown starting soon, it's gonna be too crowded at the top of the page.

Also, please try finish these countdowns soon.
