7/29 Retired Songs Post

The main purpose of this post is to announce what songs met the requirements for retirement from the voting based on percentage of votes the 7/29 Edition of the Fan Voted Chart Voting and therefore will no longer be in the voting (with one exception).  These songs will still be on the next chart we vote for (the 8/5 & 8/12 editions), losing at least 10% of their previous points total (a minimum of 5 Points lost, not to fall below 0 Points).  Each song will then be removed before the next chart is created (the 8/19 edition).

The exception: each week, the song(s) that miss the required percent of votes by the smallest amount is (are) saved from removal.  Note: songs have to have received a vote in order to qualify for the exception (a song that does not receive a vote during its third week in the voting by the way I do this would technically be the closest and get the exception, but that is contrary to the point of the exception, which is to give a song who had votes and might have been a vote or two short of staying in the voting a second chance).

Qualifying Songs:
The following songs did not get the percent of the votes needed; the bolded song(s) was/were saved (see paragraph above); the “% Difference” column shows how short the songs were of their needed percentage.

Automatically Retired Songs:
The other reason for this post to announce what songs are being automatically retired from the voting.  The songs listed here are being retired from the voting either because the artist has requested the song to be retired or is if the song has spent 30 weeks on the chart, which is the most a song is permitted to be in the voting.

No songs are being automatically retired this week.
