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

"The Charts" is still one of the most popular chapters of every disk magazine. Many of sceners check out this article as the very first one when reading a magazine, so it is very important to impress those people as much positively as it is possible.

Charts were always very important part of "Attitude" and they'll hopefully stay in this position as long as our magazine exists.

Many thanks must go to all votesheet fillers... For this issue we got 51 properly filled votesheets, mainly electronic ones. The paper votesheet was designed by Zapotek/Nostalgia, and the electronic votesheet is available at our official homepage:

http://attitude.oxyron.net

So don't hesitate to go there and influence the charts chapter for the next edition of "Attitude".

What about the way of presenting the charts? Well, it's kind of standard solution: in the first column you can see the current position, in the next one there's a place from the previous edition of "Attitude", then name/title/handle follows, amount of points and amount of people that were voting for this entry...

Before going to the main part of this chapter, I want to present the list of people who were voting this time. BIG thanks must go to: Abaddon, Agemixer, Alias Medron, Allimac, Almighty God, Blackdroid, Blemish, Britelite, Colitt, Commander, CreamD, Dalezy, Data, Dwangi, Eyesee, Fabu, Fenek, Fzool, Hoild, Hydrogen, Jailbird, Jazzcat, JTR, Junkie, Kiler, Klax, Lord Hypnos, Macx, Magnate, Mihai, Nafcom, Ninja, Orcan, Puterman, Ramos, Reiter, Sad, Shake, Smalltown Boy, Sphinx, Stormfront, Stryyker, Taper, TDS, The Overkiller, Torsoft, Unlock, Wodnik, xIII, Yogibear, Zeitgeist.

A lot of changes in this category. Jailbird came very close to Mermaid, Valsary is quickly dropping down for his inactivity.

2. (--) Almighty God/Level64/Onslaught 19 5
2. (--) JSL/Protovision/Flashback 19 5

7. (05) Tomz/Tide 7 2
9. (--) Blemish/Tropyx 6 2
9. (--) Junkie/Extend 6 2

Commander is doing a lot to keep the snailmail scene alive and he surely deserves the first place in this category. The old legends like Almighty God and Zapotek are still there. It's great to see that mail trading can be still great fun for sceners in the Internet era.

TOP 10 PAPER ARTISTS

1. (01) Junkie/Extend 41 10
2. (02) Electric/Extend 40 10
3. (05) Mermaid/Crest/Creators 36 11
4. (--) Duce/Extend 28 7
5. (03) Zapotek/Nostalgia 22 7
6. (--) Serio/Obsession 18 5
6. (04) Variat/Excess 18 4
8. (--) Alg/Obsession 10 3
9. (--) Cuc/Obsession 8 3
10. (--) Sundance/Exon 6 2

There are three Extend members in the top 4, it means that cover scene in Finland is still very strong. But Polish cover group Obsession is entering the game, so the situation in this chart can be interesting, because three of five new entries here are artists from that group...

14. (--) Opium/Samar 7 3

In the demo chart "Deus ex Machina" has been holding the 1st place for a long time now, but now "Insomnia" is coming close...

10. (--) Enhiridion/Samar 5 2

There're not many magazines in the scene these days, but surely "Vandalism" and "Domination" are the best ones. Also "Beergarden" is climbing up.
