It's also meant to be a game, as I said, and the purposes behind the pluses have been pointed out by a few users now, so at this point I think you're kind of missing the purpose yourself here so that we can just have an inverted contest, which wouldn't be as fun (though hell, we can do one of those too if you really want... though since I'll still be posting the before numbers, it'll probably just be redundant) - Defender raised a good point, if you ask me. Again, I'll supply before/after numbers regarding the pluses if you want them, but it is the way it is. You're perfectly free to not vote if you so choose.

For fun? :lol: I thought I explained it pretty well in the first post.

Though I may have overestimated how common these types of things are done... I've done/seen them with all sorts of things for as long as I can remember, so... Huh! Ah well. We're in the game now, so let's see it to the end, yeah?

This post nailed it. Hook, line, and sinker.

This bit perfected it. :lol:


But I have to agree, if it is a contest to see who is unpopular, it would be best to have just one vote. Otherwise, you are just hosting a popularity contest with a side order of character bashing and waifu wars. =/

This forum is over-saturated in these damned polls in the first place, did we really need another?

If people only voted once, due to the amount of characters available, it would lead to this going on for much longer than would be necessary or entertaining - as I said in the first post, the amount of votes is going to vary based on how many characters there are at the start. Also, it wasn't meant to "bash" anyone, but to be done in good humor, which is apparently something we're simply not capable of here, looking at these posts.

Was it necessary? Nope! But I've wanted to do something like it since they mentioned it in Victory and with everyone being in the mood and Dengekiko's conquest of U's poll reminding me, I thought it might be fun. Nothing on here is necessary, but that doesn't make it unnecessary. For those of you who don't think you can have fun based on the idea of this contest/game, that's fine, no one is making you take part, so feel free to scroll past the thread.

For those of you who do want to participate, if we can do this without too much conversation about it dragging the thread down, I have a question for you!

In regards to the votes, what would you like to see? Since we haven't gone on yet, there's still room to change, so we can maybe do something to appease more people. So! Would you:
A: prefer the voting to stay as is?
B: prefer the pluses to go down to only +1 instead of +2?
C: not have pluses at all?

This was meant to be fun, so if this can help with that for you guys a little, then we can certainly just change how things are tallied up.

I prefer that it stays the way it is. It makes sense to me and adds a mechanic beyond what the 10^99 other "lol who iz ur fav chrcter" threads do.

While I'm inclined to agree, I do want to be democratic about it so the most people can have the most fun, so I don't mind offering the option. It wasn't going to be +2 every round anyway, mostly just this one and maybe the next since it's so big - though if not enough people want to participate to get that far, it'll be a moot point I'm afraid.

On that note, since my initial wording appears to have been a point of contention and/or confusion, I changed the thread's title and some descriptions, so hopefully the changes help a little bit.

I'm voting on keeping the way it is done the same. I thought it was a pretty neat idea, like how Defender explained it earlier.

I think +2 may be a bit big of a number. +1 seems a lot more reasonable.

I can understand that. That was something I went back and forth on, but for the huge first round, I thought it might be more appropriate... Hmm.

Setting aside the removal of the idea altogether for a monent, if it was just a choice between keeping the plus and it either being 1 or 2, what do the rest of you guys think?

Thinking some more, I may have had it backwards - it being a bigger round, the votes will be more spread out, so a 2 will do more "damage" than in a later round, where there are fewer selections. What a conundrum!

Ultimately, you're the boss of how it works. I'm still fine with -1 and +2 myself.
