The request system
For many years we have been digging into sales figures of all-time best sellers. Our CSPC list is more and more complete, but top artists are still overdue.
To give more visibility to upcoming articles, we decided to make the choice of next CSPC artists entirely up to you.
The aim is to be comprehensive among top sellers, so we fixed a list of artists who need to be treated.
How do we define these artists? We have set these limits of expected results:
- over 50 million CSPC sales
- over 30 million CSPC sales for a local artist
- over 15 million CSPC sales with a single album
This concludes on a list of 135 artists.
You will notice that both Stevie Wonder and Neil Young are absent. These two are already ongoing, the former being near completed while the latter is in the early stages of the process.
Silver members can assign 3 points the way they want: 3 points to 1 artist, 1 point to 3 artists, etc.
Gold members can assign 25 points up to 10 artists, while Platinum members can assign 100 points up to 10 artists as well.
Each artist is also assigned a factor going from 1 to 4, the highest representing the largest sellers. The target is to facilitate the truly top sellers to be treated soon enough.
Once you allocated your points, your votes will impact the leaderboard of requests which sorts artists thanks to their score, which is the multiplication of their votes with the factor of the related artist.
Once a new CSPC artist is published, the next one to be treated will be automatically the current leader of the list. Votes for him will be cleared to allow the leaderboard to keep running.
You are free to complete or update your votes as many times as you want.
