Welcome to the official Attitude website - Europe's #1 C64 scene disk magazine
The Charts
by Cactus/Oxyron

The charts seem to be still the most popular article of each disk magazine. I do my best to collect as many filled votesheets as possible to keep this chapter available in every edition of "Attitude". I suppose, for most of you, it is one of those chapters which are being checked out at the very beginning of reading a magazine, then it somehow decides about your first impression. That's why I've prepared some innovations to your entertainment.

The charts are looking exactly the same like in all previous editions of "Attitude": in the first column you can see current position, then previous one follows, title, gained points and amount of voters... But that's not everything! After moving to the next page you can find a little comment and some interesting statistics, which give you the list of all "newbies" to the chart, all droppers, climbers and such interesting facts... I hope you like this style of presenting the charts and it will help you a bit while filling our votesheet in next time.

If talking about votesheet. The on-line voter has been designed by RRR/Oxyron and is available at http://attitude.oxyron.net. Also plain-text voter is also available and it is included into the zipped pack with magazine. The paper votesheet has been designed by Zapotek/Samar and is available through any of the official spreaders of "Attitude" and the main editor himself.

I'd like to thank very much to all those people, who stolen themselves a few minutes of their life and found inspiration to fill our votesheet in (the whole list will follow at the end of this chapter). But most thanks must be given to votesheet spreaders, it's their work giving our chapter any sense. Thank you: Colitt, Ramos, Reiter, Variat and of course Zapotek!

The charts are based on 49 properly filled sheets. The votesystem was changed a bit since the last issue, you could vote only for 5 entries (not 10 like in the past), which got 5 points for the first place,... and 1 point for the fifth place. Now turn the page and check out who rules today's C-64 scene...
