☠ 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?
The more the merrier! On a related note, how many nominees could each person have? I was hoping for something like 16; 4 for each season.

☠ Should we continue to not allow people to vote that make accounts after the tourney has started?
Probably. It would be a little fishy if someone has 5 posts and all are votes in this thread.

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

☠ 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?
Optional would be best. Really opinionated people will provide their reasons anyways. I know I will for a few shows!

☠ 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?
Provide a list of eligible shows in the first page. I know a few shows started in 2014 and carried over to 2015. Some people might be confused if a certain show is eligible.

If the Best Character 2015 tournament was any indication, there should be some great salt in this one.

Well, I think one show in particular has the stuffs to win it. What show courageously deviated from the manga and went on to deliver the most fulfilling ending last year? Yep, you got it. T'was none other than AgK. Lend your support this tounrey!

    Sounds good.

    ☠ Should we continue to not allow people to vote that make accounts after the tourney has started?
    No, imo.

    ☠ Do you like the Revenge of the Fallen round? Do you want it kept in or possibly remove it?
    Keep it only if it is relatively fast.

    ☠ 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 recommend tiered point schemes for effort of answer

    ☠ 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?
    Make it easy to vote (e.g. no quoting)
    Maybe do something other than "best" or "favorite" show.
    Maybe have a watch party for the winning show?

I remember seeing a dubbed episode this past summer, probably what threw me off. The dub was terribad.

Number of shows, huh....

64 total entries, after nominations.

1 round of single elimination 1v1 knockouts, seeded (ie. #1 ranked team faces #64 ranked team, #2 faces #63, etc.)
64 shows --->32 shows.

8 groups of 4. Shows placed in 4 pots, based on initial seeding (top seeds get pot 1, bottom seeds get pot 4, etc.). 1 group will consist of 1 show from each pot.
Top show of each group automatically progresses to next round. Top 4 second placed groups will automatically progress.

All eliminated shows enter RotF, straight up polling for the 52 eliminated shows. Top 4 in RotF polling progresses.

Knockout stages.
Round of 16 matchups, and the bracket itself, will be decided by a draw from two pots. Pot 1 consists of group winners, Pot 2 consists of all other shows. The tournament goes on until 1 show remains.

---------------------
For reasons in votes, I say no.
Including reasons in the vote usually diminished voter turnout and also caused controversy over what is a legitimate reason.

I think 64 is better than 30. I feel like 30 isn't enough.



Yes.


Yes, I like Revenge of the Fallen. It brings more salt.

I like putting a reason for the votes so you should definitely keep it as a requirement. Some people write some really nice and creative things for their votes. I like reading them even though my votes aren't very creative.

I don't have any ideas. Sorry.

I'm writing up a possible tournament format

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Mrmariokartguy/toruney2015proposal

EDIT: Took me an hour or so, but I'm done!

Nominations per voter can change from the 16 I listed.
And other modifications please quote me so I can see your suggestions.
Posted 5/12/16
I don't really see any reason to change the format from the previous 3(4?) years.

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

I have no problem with it cos some people might be new to the site or are just seeing it for the 1st time. I admit to getting salty about questionable votes in the past battles but hey it was still fun in the end. If they really want to vote and are questionable then a pm to the tourney admin would be ok imo. but either way makes no difference to me

☠ 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 old users who made it interesting? no, not possible?

☠ 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?

yes keep it, even if it's a bs reason. just straight voting becomes dull almost immediately, tho i'm not advocating long ass essays but hey if that's what you want to do then go for it. a short reason should be sufficient.


as for the other questions remassie has the right idea. also bobland, totally not fond of the format, already makes me not want to vote XDD

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

☠ 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.

Past standard has been 32, 8 per season. And even that could be super restrictive, 4 would be murder.

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

If it started in 2014 it was in last year's tounrey. This tounrey gets delayed until after the winter season is over so that carryovers from fall are included in the year they started in.
