If we go that route I'd like to have two bouts in each day's post so it doesn't take 32 days to get through them.

I was thinking double that. 4 matches per day so we don't get stuck on the first round for forever.

Oh gotcha, I misread the post. Thought it was weird doing singles in the 64s then doubles in the 32s.

Here it is!!! I'll just quote my post from a year ago of the 2014 Battle. I'm as excited as I was back then.

This is the mother of all tourneys.

Seriously, I was like "it's already May it won't happen", and here it is.
HYPE HYPE HYPE

I'd just change 2014 to 2015, 2013 to 2014, and SNAFU to HunterxHunter.
Seriously, I'm still kind of mad that Your Lie in April didn't get past Elite 8, but what really pissed me off is that it was defeated by No Game No Life.


Also salty because Nozaki defeated Nisekoi.
Let's see if people have a better taste in anime this year. lol jk

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?
    32 like past year seems fine. Maybe a bit little more like 10 or 12 per season.

    ☠ Should we continue to not allow people to vote that make accounts after the tourney has started?
    No. It's really annoying to see your favorite anime be defeated by that one vote at the last minute by a probably fake person.

    ☠ Do you like the Revenge of the Fallen round? Do you want it kept in or possibly remove it?
    Yes. That part of the tournament is exciting. I liked the format of the 2014 Battle. I'd keep it just like that.

    ☠ 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?
    We should continue with it. I'll sound like a geezer but it's a tradition. People have to make at least a little bit of effort to make their votes count. Either by typing a fresh short reason or copy pasting an old one, it doesn't matter. Watching just the name of the series as a vote would make this tournament dull for me. *cough* best anime ever tournament *cough*

    ☠ 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?
    As for the tourney:
    Don't complicate the rules.
    Add things like post a gif, make a haiku, etc as an optional type of vote.
    As for gathering more people:
    I really don't know. Let's invade the General Discussion forum and bring all those people LOL.

I like the idea of more making it into the tourney, but don't feel that strongly about it.


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


I like it! It's fun and keeps hope alive.

I like it when folks have to give brief reasons. It makes me more interested in reading other people's votes and can lead to a bit of on-topic conversation as well. Maybe make it optional during the first round (especially if multiple matches are taking place simultaneously), but required during the rest? Or allow without but give a higher weight to votes with reasons (though if you do that you might be put in the position of having to be pickier about allowable reasons so people don't get extra points for any old gibberish reason)

On my phone, but I'll do my best! I agree with pretty much everything Rem and Hayate said, but I'll just give quick points:

1. 32 vs 64 - I'd make it maybe in the middle, but I think 64 is too much.
2. Do not allow people who make their account after the tourney starts to vote - Absolutely. Don't play with fire! It's just one less thing to worry about.
3. Revenge of the Fallen - If you do keep it, make it hard for those shows to come back. With ROTF it's gotta be a battle.
4. Reasons - Make it optional. In CR Picks, we thought it was so much better. Easier for the participants and easier for the admins. People who want to give reasons will give reasons. Most of the time how it works is that people will just give very lackluster reasons and a lot of copy and paste reasons down the line. It's just kind of pointless. People who care for a particular show will give it a lot of effort and vice versa. Make ease of access as easy as possible. People like options.

5. More recommendations - Besides the recommendations above, if you really want people to give reasons while still making it optional, then listen to this: Maybe have round achievements that are optional. For example, If you write over 500 words for a reason you'll get recognized in some way at the end of the round. And you can do a lot of stuff with this like story votes that include a particular setting or saying how the characters in the show would act in a particular situation. It could be simple themes, simple word count requirements, story votes, etc. probably would be best to use a mixture of it all. Anyways you get the point, just dumb fun stuff like that. Basically what I'm saying is to more achievements that are attainable in the beginning to give people a goal and motivation to give reasons. But the downside is that it could be extra work for you and the admins, and it may take away from the main focus of the tourney which is the tourney itself. If you do it, you gotta make sure it's more of a fun side thing and not so much a major focus. Just an idea. I'd personally probably just want it to be optional reasons and that's it, but this could be a nice middle ground.

Nononot a Vote!

You have questions, I have answers!

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?

I'm for it if you want to since I don't mind a longer tournament and like everyone having a chance.

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

As long as there was a process for getting exceptions to the rule for sincerely interested participants who just so happen to have not joined before the game begins, sure.

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

It lengthens the tournament and tends to not make much of a difference in the end, so maybe it should go. Then again, it also provides people who were excited about a candidate but just got a sour matchup too early on another chance, so it adds some fun in the form of hope.

I'm good with doing things either way.

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 think it should be optional or the standards for a reason need to be lowered to allow for responses such as just plain liking someone/something more. People don't always have reasons more complicated than that for their preferences, and their preferences are still sincere.

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?

1. Lewds are great as far as I'm concerned, but they may be offputting and limit our participation base. Maybe requiring putting them in spoilers would be a good compromise, and people could just skip or open them according to their preference.

2. Once peoples' favourites are out of the running they tend to lose interest and participation falls off accordingly. Most people still hang around in the lounge thread to jabber with everyone, but they don't have much incentive to track the tournament itself after they're out. Maybe if the achievement system were modified to give outputs every round rather than once at the end of the tournament people would have a reason to participate to get those if nothing else? Or maybe a lottery system for participants winning things like accolades or custom work from willing writers (Heaven knows we have a lot of them) could be established?

3. Closer collaboration with Contest Hime might be something to consider if that's an option, particularly if one is looking for accolades that can appear on peoples' profiles.

1: The more the merrier imo
2: Yes, new accounts made just to influence a vote is sad. The obvious exceptions can always be vetted & let through.
3: ROTF sounds good, no good reason I can think of not to have it.
4: Maybe make it mandatory for first votes but allow copy & pastes for later ones for the same anime(I like reading peoples reasons)
5: idk, maybe post a list of eligible anime with links to their myanimelist page or something, so people know wtf they're voting for if they haven't watched it & you don't have to keep telling people that their show can't be in the battle.

So here are my thoughts about the questions:

1. 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?

I like to increase the number of shows, but I feel 64 is too much. Something like 48 would be ideal.

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

Definitely. That, and the minimum CR point requirement should be enacted to ensure that there's no ballot box stuffing.

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

Keep it. I want to recognize shows that got canned because of their competition.

4. 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 say make it optional. Lots of people are lazy, so if they don't feel like stating their reason, then they shouldn't be forced. If anything, they should be required to state their reasons just for the latter rounds of the tournament like the Elite Eight and afterwards. But for all other rounds when there is a lot going through their minds, it shouldn't be required.

5. 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?

Nothing at the moment.
