Okay, after it was brought up, there's been a change in rules.

You do not have to use the NAV tag, but on your actual vote I would appreciate it if you would mark is with a THIS IS MY VOTE tag. It will not be mandatory, but it would be very helpful.

I just kept that rule in to have it. I really don't care if people use the NAV tags or not. I'm going to be going through all posts anyways, so it doesn't really matter if anyone uses it or not.

Saying This is a vote sounds like it would be better, but not everyone would use it, so it won't be effective.


Requiring voters use the word "Vote" at the top of a vote post may be best. You can still be lenient on new voters with that rule, as they may not know better. I know when I was counting the votes, ones clearly marked with the word "Vote" were a breeze to spot doing a quick scroll down a page, and even more so when bolded or when the character's name was highlighted in a different color than black.

I'd recommend requiring at least the word "Vote" in a vote post over the NAV tag as far as helping yourself out with the vote counting. Like others have said, being able to hit CTRL+F with a certain key word or phrase will help make counting easier, and it will help make recounting in the case of a close match easier as well. The only reason we had the NAV tags was because we assumed around the same amount of activity as chrome's contest, but given how things have evolved into what they are now, it has become somewhat obsolete. Not everyone uses the NAV tags like you said, so they don't really help much in vote counting over long stretches of pages, and become burdensome to the ones using them to boot.

I want to help you save yourself from some suffering with finding hidden votes in large swarms of non voting posts is all. The whole Morgiana is safe thing was caused by some well hidden votes in the chaos for example. I missed at least 3 votes because they were hidden in among convos, images, and random stuff, and did not use the word vote or bold text or highlight the name. Thankfully remassie helped find them when I missed them, but you may not have the same luck and I want things to work out well for you.

EDIT: and I see you made the call on it right before I posted this.

The not a vote tags are bad.

It would make your life easier to count votes with,

This is a vote.

It has to be as above. Just control f and search away instead of digging through mountains of {insulting words go here} posts.


This is not a bad idea. Given when chrome_mist required the NAV tags there was significantly less activity than our contest. Since our contest became a beast of its own the discussion far outweighed the voting posts; making it more taxing on people having a convo to post NAV each time and stay current. Anyhow, requiring a voter say "This is my vote" or "My vote is for/goes to" instead would be a good idea. Though it should not be required, asking for people to bold and/or color code the name of the character in the vote will help to spot them as well. Additionally, faux or joke vote posts should clearly be marked as such so they don't accidentally get counted.

Just my two cents after having counted the votes in our Tounrey, and what issues I had on the vote counting end.


there cannot be a variation on the tag.

this assures easy find and keeps extraneous things out.

I said my lost post. I'll probably migrate between the two as people permit.

I think you know.

EDIT:

I just realized - imagine walking in to that face for a bartender? *points to avatar*

Have fun with that.

Since I've seen them brought up a couple of times I'm going to go ahead and say that I didn't include any characters from Hunter X Hunter or Mushishi in the original 64 Guys. Mostly because I forgot about them until I had already finished everything up So, be sure to support them in round 2, the (Nomination) round.
