They consider the comments in the forums and the votes in the polls that are underneath each ranked artist.They will rank the artists that become eligible next year. So whatever spots opened up this time will become scarce. But I think Oingo Boingo could probably make a top 500 list.

I read that the members' input is considered in the revisions. Is there some formal way that we all submit our suggestions, or does the committee just informally peruse the comments and forum posts?

Boingo fused elements of punk, swing, jazz, and "world music" all into one big paranoid nightmare that leaves me grinning!Were they even discussed? And - if so - I'm curious as to the reasons they didn't make it onto the list: not to criticize, just to see the decision process (assuming they were even discussed, of course).
