☠ I'd like to increase the shows that make it into the tourney proper from 30 to 64. Do you like that idea? Not like it? Have a different number in mind?

K.

☠ Should we continue to not allow people to vote that make accounts after the tourney has started?

Yes. Because shenanigans.

☠ Do you like the Revenge of the Fallen round? Do you want it kept in or possibly remove it?

Do Like. The liveliest rounds in the last tounrey were the revengey ones.

☠ It has always been a requirement that people have to give a reason for their vote. Honestly, it's not that hard I think. Should we continue with this? Should we make it optional?

Like, srs. It doesn't have to be a good reason. Just a reason.

☠ I want to make this tourney to be as user friendly as possible. I want to see lots of people participate. Any ideas you'd like to share?

Get back to you on that one.

Questionnaire responses:

1) As others have said, 64 is a good number; it's neither too many nor too few, at least to me.

2) Keep it the way it is; there are enough fishy votes in these things without even factoring in accounts made in the last day or two.

3) There are things I like and don't like about Revenge of the Fallen, but for simplicity's sake, I'll take a neutral stance and let others decide this one.

4) Honestly, I don't see a point anymore. If you're willing to accept a reason like "This one minor character who appeared for five seconds has amazing hair," then why bother requiring reasons at all? I guess it's technically a greater level of engagement than giving no reason at all, but I personally think it's pretty much the same. Not requiring reasons will also likely lead to higher turnouts and less work for both the voters and the admins, so I say make them optional. If you really want voters to give elaborate reasons, then maybe some of the tourney regulars would be willing to help out by explaining their own reasons, which would hopefully encourage some new/infrequent voters to do the same.

5) Besides removing the reason requirement, I think welcoming new voters to the tournament, commenting (politely, of course) on some votes that happen to catch your eye, checking in with voters periodically to see how they feel about the tournament so far and asking for feedback, bringing up certain topics or even entire shows for discussion, and overall just being friendly (albeit perhaps a bit competitive) and taking initiative would be potential ways to bring in new voters and keep them around for a while. To elaborate on the last point, if you - as an admin - show voters that the process isn't too hard and can actually be a lot of fun, but also - as a voter - show them that, in spite of being an admin, you're still one of them when it comes to having shows you're passionate about and would like to see go far (as well as those you'd like to see eliminated early, of course), then I think voters will find it easier to become more engaged in the tournament, which could lead to them sticking around for longer, joining discussions, and maybe even writing out more elaborate votes. That's about all I've got.

☠ Looking for extra help. Contact me if interested.
Unfortunately, my free time isn't what it used to be

Questionnaire

☠ I'd like to increase the shows that make it into the tourney proper from 30 to 64. Do you like that idea? Not like it? Have a different number in mind?
Are there even that many good shows If you were set on increasing it I would just up it to 40 (a nice top 10 from each season) adn then use revenge of the fallen or group stages to get you up to a standard 2,4,8,16,32

☠ Should we continue to not allow people to vote that make accounts after the tourney has started?
yes always

☠ Do you like the Revenge of the Fallen round? Do you want it kept in or possibly remove it?
only if there is a space for those voted back in, and they aren't pushing people out who already won, or forceign lower shows to have to do an extra fight.

☠ It has always been a requirement that people have to give a reason for their vote. Honestly, it's not that hard I think. Should we continue with this? Should we make it optional?
Depends what you want for your tournament, and how easy you want it to be to count votes. do you want conversation to come up from people responding to others votes, or do you want the debates separate. I think the really insightful reasons that are substantial enough to spark conversation are going to be there whether it's optional or required. Just with required you get a lot of dumb reasons too. Also outside fo the first round reasons become really copy and paste, unless there is reason for them not to be.

☠ I want to make this tourney to be as user friendly as possible. I want to see lots of people participate. Any ideas you'd like to share?
Just make sure that you are having fun! If you start changing things just to acquiesce to the whiners, bitchers and bellyachers it becomes infinitely harder to enjoy your own tournament.

Does this mean shows like Your Lie in April is eligible, or only those who started in 2015?

Questionare:
1: I like 64, since there are a lot of shows that aired over the year.
2. I'd say ask them for a PM or something since you never know really.
3. I don't think you should keep it. If a show lost, it lost.
4. Yes, especially since this is for shows. It'll also probably help prevent troll votes a little bit. Plus I like to see why people liked a certain show since it gets me interested in watching it.
5. Not sure. Will come back to this later probably.

    Yeah, if you have the team to hold it up.

    ☠ Should we continue to not allow people to vote that make accounts after the tourney has started?

    Doesn't matter to me. Let them vote, these things go for awhile. Never know who you catch the eye of.

    ☠ Do you like the Revenge of the Fallen round? Do you want it kept in or possibly remove it?

    Sure.


    ☠ It has always been a requirement that people have to give a reason for their vote. Honestly, it's not that hard I think. Should we continue with this? Should we make it optional?

    I'm feeling pretty lax about it... It's not hard but then this stupid vote checking thing can lead to bickering and crap. I see leave the requirement out.

    ☠ I want to make this tourney to be as user friendly as possible. I want to see lots of people participate. Any ideas you'd like to share?

    Bring back them damn powers. I miss the actual importance of the page number.

    But in all honesty, just keep it simple if you want user friendly. I'll let you know if I think up anything new.




I'll let you know if I can help out. It depends on what you need for it; you are well aware what I can do at this point, I think. Free time fluctuates a lot, too.
