I felt like this in the best girl's thread. I mean it's obvious people enjoyed the thread and had a lot of fun doing all the fanfic and stuff, but I came out of it literally learning NOTHING about why people liked the characters they liked.

Whatever the tournament organizers want to do with their own tournament is fine, but I desperately hope chrome keeps her annual tournament the same. I actually like learning about what people like about what they like in these threads.

Edit: I feel like that sentence had too many likes in it...


The funny thing is we actually required people give specific reasons in certain rounds, unlike in chrome's tournament. Her only requirement was a reason, no matter how absurd or shallow, the entire tourney. She never once required or even asked people to write why the series is so great or not. People chose to do that of their own volition.

So, how much people choose to share has absolutely nothing to do with any of our requirements or rules. For whatever reason people just don't seem to want to talk about characters as much as shows. That said, you should have looked closer because I saw quite a few people give reasons why they like the girl they picked, even if it was just for superficial reasons. And I think maybe that's part of it. Since people tend to like characters for superficial reasons then they give superficial reasoning, no?

Maybe some people can't quite articulate why they like a character as easily as they can a show? Maybe they feel less passionate about a character than they do they show? Or maybe they feel so passionate they cannot even begin to understand how to articulate their feelings?

Think about this, the definition of moé gets turned into something it is not or is often misunderstood. Why is that? I think it is because to define it in words is difficult as it is a feeling, an emotional response more than a logical one. The saying "beauty is in the eye of the beholder " comes into play. Sometimes what makes something beautiful is hard to describe. The reasons why may even escape us. It is like asking why a mother loves her child. The bond often goes deeper than words can describe. Not to mention the physical responses caused by the release of hormones and such playing a role in how we feel about someone. It is not quite the same as analyzing a show. We don't feel for a show in quite the same way we feel for a person, and even imaginary people I'd guess. Things are less personal on the show level and more personal on the character level I feel.

I was Ritsu showing up with a satchel of books to a karaoke mixer, basically.

/shrug

The best girl thread was a successful, fun, creative-sharing community event with lots of fanfic. But it was almost totally uninformative in any critically relevant sense. And that's due to its game design. If you guys had wanted to incentivize character analysis you could have done so. But you instead made decisions which disincentivized that kind of event.

Which is fine, you all obviously had a lot of fun. But I still reserve the right to be petulant about it.

Well, I can understand how you would say that. I don't really know much about Star Wars characters and I haven't watched Star Wars in a long time so I just think of as "just a bad guy" Feel free to fill me in(or not if it's too much trouble )


I mean, he died in the first movie. He just looked like an even demonic dude.

Then you had Dooku who was Darth Sidious without the charisma.
