Chart Challenge 2006

So following on from our other threads, I thought we better have a new one for the 2006 year.

To recap the rules, and for those who haven't read/played before, here's how it works.

Players will submit their predictions for the Top 10 singles chart as revealed the following Sunday. For this week's competition, this means the 1st Chart in January, announced January 1st.

Players can either post their predictions in this thread (as I will do shortly after tonight's chart) or PM me their predictions. All predictions must be in by close of Monday (UK time).

Predictions should be in list form from Number 1 down to Number 10. Any corrections/edits will be allowed after the initial post/PM, but only up until the deadline.

On Sunday, after the chart is revealed, players will score points for however many places they have predicted wrong. For example if Shayne Ward is predicted at 1 and ends up at 1, no points will be awarded. If it ends up at 2, 1 point is awarded, 3 - 2 points and so on. If a predicted song fails to make the top 75 (unlikely, but this has happened) - points will be awarded as if the song landed at 76. If someone predicts a song that turns out to be NCQ'd, points will be awarded as if the song charted at 41.

All players, whether they post or PM their predictions agree to their scores being ranked the following week. The player with the lowest score is declared that week's winner. I will announce the full results each week soon after the appropriate chart.

Good luck to all that take part - my predictions for next week will be up soon as usual.

Would it be possible that, when you update the scores on a Sunday after the chart is announced, could you put the actual Top 10 in the chart too as its easier to read instead of going into another thread/website and comparing.

Yeah, as long as Amir has no objections, I'm happy to do that.

Ok, as a new 2006 twist, there will be a new overall scoring system to this.

Each week, the top 10 predicters will be awarded points from 10 for 1st place, to 1 for 10th place. Each week I will publish an update on how the overall rankings are going, so I'd encourage all players to enter on a regular basis to keep racking up the points.

Credit somewhat to Jon, who sent me a nice inspiring PM :D
