    Yeah, those results arent terribly accurate. The tough thing with this round is that there is margin for error with people voting incorrectly, so I have to go behind the scenes and piece it all together. I have completed the scoring for Bag of Bones and Black House so far, and will try to finish the others soon and get them posted. Once I have done all of that, the polls should read correctly. As they are now, if you do some adding in each section and compare against the total votes (minus the NRs) then you will see there are definitely some issues.

    Yes, this is not so straightforward. I arrived at the numbers you see by simply adding the number of votes in each category and getting the percentage of the highest score. So, for example, in Bag of Bones the category of "Strength of Plot" received 33 As, 28 Bs, and 9 Cs. That's 70 total votes in that category, with A getting the most (33), which accounts for 47.14% of the vote.

    Okay, that's cool. It's just that those numbers do change a bit, due to the fact that certain votes have been removed due to incorrect voting. The numbers that are up now, in all but Duma Key, are the correct tallies.

    I havent added the scores yet. I was just saying that the number of votes for each option is now correct, so if you wanted to check your percentages now, it would be accurate according to the scores going on record.

    Aaron, there seems to be one last issue with Bag of Bones: total votes is 89, with 17 NRs. That should make 72 unique votes, yet each category's votes add up to only 70.

    That is because, per the voting rules, if a person voted more than once in one of the voting areas none of the grades they listed are counted. I can correct the numbers for each grade, but cannot change the number for how many people originally voted. So for Bag of Bones, we would get the average by dividing by 70, rather than 72.

    I thought it would be fun to post some statistics about our thirty books that moved on to the 2nd Round. So, for anyone who may care:

    Of 30 books, 23 are novels (76.7%), 6 are collections (20%), and 1 is a non-fiction book (3.3%). The decades are represented thusly: 4 books from the 1970s (13.3%), 9 books from both the 1980s and the 1990s (30%), and 8 books from the 2000s (26.7%). Seven different years are represented by two books: 1982, 1984, 1987, 1991, 1996, 2004, and 2008. And eleven years of King's output are not represented at all: 1974, 1980, 1981, 1988, 1989, 1992, 1993, 1995, 2005, 2006, 2007.

    Fantastic news. Hopefully it'll stay that way.

    Now I'm a bit confused. I'm not seeing overall scores for the books yet, only percentages of what letter grades they got, so I'm assuming that has yet to be calculated?

    They have been calculated for the first two voting groups, but arent posted in this thread yet. If you click on the closed thread/poll for each book, you will find all of the scoring added to the first posts of each applicable thread.

    The number values are based on a system of A = 3, B = 2, C = 1. Each grading area received an average score and then those averaged scores were averaged for the overall score. Then that score is added to the Round 1 score.

    This is really amazing, the amount of data we have collected doing this.

    I'm hoping we can get some total numbers on how many voted when all is said and done.

    That should be pretty easy, Matt. I would just need to create formula in my spreadsheet and we can tell how many voted in each round and well as overall.

    I'm going right now through the first two groups and updating everything in this thread as far as numbers and percentages. The table will also be updated.

    I am simply amazed by the formulas and indexes and everything you've done with this. Bravo.
