Well, I thought that maybe we could set points for each rank.
#1 would be worth 12 points
#2 11 points
#3 10 points
#12 1 point
And then, when the voting has stopped: We calculate the points for each movie. I know its going to require a little more work but I think this way there won’t be any titles in the top20 with 0 votes. The other benefit is that this really represents the top-movies of all the members of the forum.
With 20 pre-selected nominees it would not be that representative. Also there is a chance that someone hasn’t seen half (or any) of the 20 nominees.
