After arguing with Jake Jortles for a bit about whether or not the point system is a good way to choose who to vote for or not, he told me to give it a try so I did. After some tuning I think I'm convinced now that this is a pretty good tool to use to try and figure out who to vote for. I don't think it's prefect but if you've got some time to kill this is also a pretty fun way to get to know other people's lineups.

The tie with Pepe and King T is won by King T because, while I quite like Pepe's lineup, early in the day on every one of Pepe's day's I'd be bored/seeing thing I'm not super excited about or, in the case of his sunday, I'd be seeing thing I've seen before. Also the lack of infinity is a problem for me. DE was my only for sure vote before I did this. I had gone back and forth with King T, Mardude and Dan over the last few days.
Its just going through each schedule and assigning a value from 1-20 based on how excited youd be to see each act that you would see on each lineup and adding everything up. The distribution of your scores shouldnt be even. There would likely be a ton of acts that fall between 1-4 and very few that would eclipse 15 or so. Just challenged me to try to get a hold of how excited I would be for certain acts... or I guess every act.
