At least, until I can talk to Nat and see how to score someone with less than 20.

Well, it depends on what everyone wants to do. If, for example, we want to try to make everyone do the work and come up with 20, and penalize their votes if they don't (similar to what JRA proposes in the following post below):

15th place vote gets 75 points
14th place vote gets 80 points
13th place vote gets 85 points
12th place vote gets 90 points
11th place vote gets 95 points
...then we have to change the formula slightly (which I'll tell you how to do it if we all decide that). On the other hand, if we all decide that the first place vote from any voter should get 145 points (and so on down the line, with five less points for each vote), then the formula I gave you already does that.

Personally, my vote would be to try and make everybody do the work to make a list of 20. Those that provide only ten - or especially less (like five), shouldn't get to have their top picks getting as many points as those who voted for a full twenty - at least that's my opinion.

If you want to change the formula to do what I'm suggesting, then you have to change the "20" in the formula from a fixed number to a variable (say, V - where V is the total number of votes cast by a voter). So the revised formula would then be:

P = 5 * (V - R) + 50, where P is the number of points, R is the ranking that each voter gives it, and V is the total number of votes cast by a voter.

Sorry for the long response, but you asked (JRA).

TL;DR: I like Mankvill's answer of "YES" a whole lot better - everyone has to vote for 20 - but I'm no dictator.

If you were familiar with Minor Threat your question would have not needed asking, but since you aren't, no its not a comp. It's the romp.

Well what I meant was if someone only has 10, then #1 on their list gets 50 points instead of 145 and such.

I really don't want to come up with 20. I thought the original number was 10 and I thought I barely had enough to fill that quota. When I learned that I did, I was excited to share, and then I learned it was 20. I wouldn't have bothered if I knew it was 20 before hand.

I think we decided that we were covering an entire decade and that since we were such a small community voting, we increased the number to 20.
