The Rate This Artist series is run by maplejet. The series includes users on board 8 rating various musical artists ranging from rock to metal to hip-hop to indie to electronica to classical to progressive garage death country. Ratings are between 0-10 to the first decimal place. An artist must have at least 8 votes in order to qualify, or else, the votes are discarded and the artist must wait 4 more months until being re-rated. The number of dropped votes depends on the number of voters...10 voters = the lowest rating dropped, 20 voters = 2 lowest ratings dropped, and so on.
