Vote as many times as you like, but you have to vote in each section I believe. Root used to randomize the entries but I ain't got them abilities so they're in order that they were nominated. 


I took pains to faithfully replicate as best I could each entry but occasionally there were bits that had to be cut off, and obviously the pics/videos don't really work in a poll so...


If you need to refer to images/videos in the nomination thread, the polls being listed in order should help you find the original post, thread is here: https://forum.watmm.com/topic/95071-most-idm-2018


I don't think there are any repeats but if so I'll combine them upon consolidation to the next round.


Top scorers will go on to a bracket thing next time. 


edit: I just realized the k subgroup will be over-represented in the polling since voters HAVE to vote at least once in each section and it's a small section. Oh well? I can edit it if everyone cares enough though :)

:) get your moms to create accounts and vote for IDM moms and if when they ask what IDM is just play them a pretty BOC track



probably should leave this up at least a week if not two weeks just because there's so many entries (may take a while for everyone to find 20 minutes to dig through and vote, especially if looking at all the videos and pics referenced). spam the discord and other places because an accurate representation of Most IDM for 2018 is necessary for the good of the genre. this is v important.


let me know if there's any mistakes also

Oh shit, it says "delete my vote" - I cannot edit it?


I wanted to vote "worrying about the lack of bass then remembering you're listening from your phone whilst cycling into the wind"

^yeah I don't think there's a way to edit your votes, you've just gotta delete then re-vote (I had to do this in some year past too). When Most IDM 2020 rolls around and the new site has just gone live we'll have vote editing functions. Maybe. ;)


Looks like brushing your teeth at a Merzbow concert is gonna take it this year.

It's not in the lead at the moment actually.... wouldn't be a bad one though (would make for some good tracks)


voting in a vote thread

Great job Auxien, this is going to be a wicked comp



I'm going to have to come back multiple times to actually complete voting this round, so if you can keep this one open for a while that would be great.

Yeah, I don't see any reason to close it until probably late next week or perhaps after next weekend even... I think there's a fair amount of users here who only visit a few times a month or week. Everyone just keep bumping it by begging others to vote for your favorites (reposting the videos or images too or whatever who cares)  :nyan:
