I also found myself wondering where this thread had gone earlier today.
I'm curious to know how people with more, uh, "normal" musical tastes will react to this...
Which is why I'm thinking that three albums of significantly different genres will inspire more people to participate. To use my taste for example, if someone recommends jazz, country, or deathcore, I ain't gonna have shit to say other than "Nope, still don't like that kind of music."
So, for the sake of drafting a plan to build upon: We get in two more albums for this first week; I do have two others in mind in case nobody else wants to suggest anything. For next week, or, whenever we figure everything out, participants can suggest an album or two for up to nine albums that we can add to a wheel. As for who spins the wheel and "determines" which albums we'll listen to during a week, we should have a couple of arbiters (which can also be picked by a wheel), preferably people who show up on the forums pretty often. The honor system isn't perfect, but I doubt that anyone is willing to go the extra mile to set up a Twitch or YouTube stream in order to show that the results weren't falsified, so, honor system is it. And after the selected three albums have been listened to and reviewed, those are off of the wheel, we can talk about whether the albums that weren't selected either stay on the wheel or the wheel gets wiped, new albums get added on a first-post-first-added basis at one or two suggestions per person (the number of suggestions of which can be adjusted depending on how many people participate), a new wheel spinner gets picked (though if that person misses a deadline, another arbiter should take the reins on a whoever posts first basis), rinse, and repeat.
Also, I just remembered that time zones are a thing and that their can be some debate between whether a week begins with Sunday or Monday. So, unless there are some strong objections in regards to one, the other or both, a week is between Monday 12:00 AM EST and Sunday 11:59 PM EST, the voting period for the next week can be between Friday 12:00 AM EST and Sunday 11:59 PM EST, and the selected wheel spinner has until Tuesday 11:59 PM EST to post the new list.
I can organize this better when necessary.
