Now that we’ve
heard from you, we’re proud to present you with our final update of 2008: the Punknews.org editorial year end lists. Below you’ll find links to the articles:
Finally, with the awesome power of math we’ve tallied up the scores from each editor and each staff reviewer to come up with…

With the year officially ending momentarily, it seemed like the right time to put up the most important year-end list of all: yours. Based on your voting for the past 365 days, we’ve got a list of your favorite albums based on highest score and most participation.
Obviously, we couldn’t just take the highest scores since 5 people loving an album and giving it a 10 isn’t necessarily better than 100 people giving it a 9, so we did a little math and creating a weighting factor to adjust the scores to balance out the number of people voting and the raw scores themselves. This list is based on a few hundred thousand votes, so it’s hopefully a pretty good representation of your favorite albums of 2008.
Thanks to everyone who registered an account and voted for their favorites. If you aren’t happy with the list, go
register and make sure your vote is counted next year.
