This is something I've been wondering for a while, but just haven't bothered asking before. How do the top album pages work for the number of ratings an album has to have in order to get in the top list and why are they all different?

Voldemort has taken over Hogwarts. That's the only reasonable explanation

I'm not sure of the specifics may Max has a custom algorithm for determining the charts and I expect it's someone based on averages and rating weights. Honestly the only person who could answer this clearly is Max himself.

I'm sure there must be a better way to generate these charts though: it makes no sense when an album can appear on the chart of a parent sub-genre but nowhere on the chart for the child sub-genre it's actually placed in.

Or making the minimum amount of ratings an album has to have 8 ratings for a genre like Funk Metal, where few albums have many ratings.
