Thanks for taking the time to read any of this post, which I use as a way to inform you about the upcoming Voting to Create the 11/11-11/17/18 Fan Voted Chart.
Who Can Be #1?
Even though it will not be in the voting this week, “Always Have Mexico” by Travis Rice will remain at #1 one final time. Falling short of the percentage of the votes it needed during the last voting, “AHM” has been retired from the voting so this week’s chart will be its encore week. During the final week a song is on the chart, it gives 10% of its accumulated points back to be distributed to the rest of the songs. Even with that 10% taken out, “AHM” would still have way more points than the song that will end up at #2, therefore “AHM” will spend its final week on the chart at #1. In total, “AHM will have spent 8 weeks at #1 and broke the record for most accumulated points by any song.
Each song that is “Retired, Still on the Chart/Level” will still be on this week’s chart as an “encore” but is removed afterwards. As part of this “encore” each song will lose 10% of their previous points (5 Points minimum, always rounded to the next whole number, minimum score of 0 Points) to simulate a fall down the charts before removal.
The following table outlines the movement of songs up levels or off of the chart so you can see how many songs will be on each poll and how many songs are moving up a level.
|Level||Songs on This Week’s Poll||Songs on Level, Not on Poll*||Songs Removed From the Chart**||Songs Promoted to the Next Level|
*-all songs get an “encore” week after being retired from the voting (usually because it didn’t get the required percent of votes it needed). When a song is on its “encore” week, it still counts towards the 8 songs on the level.
**-after a song’s “encore” week, it is removed from the chart and a spot opens up on the level. The songs on the level below are able to move up to take the open spot and therefore creates an open spot on that level.
***-there is no limit to the number of songs on Level 1. The numbers provided in this row are merely for your information.
Based on what poll a song is on and what place it finishes in will determine how many points the song will have added to its cumulative total. There is a total of 1,426 points to redistribute this week to get to the 10,000 points distributed to all the songs on the chart. The total number of points to redistribute is found by adding up the points that removed songs had in their last week on the chart plus the 10% of points songs lose between their last week in the voting and the last week on the chart. Basically, songs give up the points they had earned over their chart run and those points are redistributed to the songs that are in the voting.

Here’s a more detailed breakdown of how points are distributed:
Hot Song: 25
Normal Distribution & Promotion Points: 1154
Bonus Points: 247
The breakdown of bonus points is determined by the percent of votes a song on that polls receives. This week, 37 points will be distributed to the Level 10 songs, 35 to the Level 9 songs, 32 to Level 8, 30 to Level 7, 27 to Level 6, 25 to Level 5, 22 to Level 4, 20 to Level 3 and 19 to Level 2.
Note: the points for the Hot Song will be added to the “Bonus” points the song would receive when I post the results for this week’s voting.
The 11/11-11/17/18 Chart Voting will run from 4pmEDT on Tuesday, 11/6 until 4pmET on Friday, 11/9. The 11/11-11/17/18 Chart will be revealed on Sunday, 11/11.
