3/16: The Living Tombstone Takes the Hot 50 by Storm!
Our first Hot 50 has been tabulated, and The Living Tombstone is the first #1. However, before we go into detail, let's explain how this chart works.
As you can tell from the previous post, there are 2 categories that factor in: votes and views. In the future, there will hopefully be a good quantity of votes on this site, but until then, the base values used are from the TopTenPony monthly charts. Because of this, it only has a 33% weight on the Hot 50, while daily average for the week ends up with the 67% majority. Once enough votes come in, the ratio will become 50-50, but until then, expect to see the #1 for the views ending up winning the Hot 50 as well for a while.
Anyway, The Living Tombstone becomes our first #1 with his remix of "Stop the Bats", largely fueled by both his overall popularity and the popularity of show remixes to end up with over 12,000 chart points! Like the views chart, this is over 100% past the closest competition, which is again "Brony Polka", coming in at almost 4,800 points. "Crusader" ends up higher than the views chart at #3, due to its #1 for its month's votes, a feat the top 2 did not achieve. Meanwhile, the #1 for votes, "Moonlight", bows at #4, and the top 5 is rounded out by AcoustiMandoBrony's "Laughter".
Come soon to see the full charts for the Hot 50 and the specialty charts!
