Rpg Contest #3

Posted by Black Six , Sep 24 2006 · 926 views

So, it's almost time for the second round of voting, and I've yet to decide how I'm going to sett it up. That's why I'm asking you guys to see what you think.

My first option is to have the top three entries from each poll go on to the semis, just like last time. Also like last time, all the first place winners would go into one poll, the second place into another, and the third place into the last; five entries in each. Then, from the semis to the finals, the top four first place, top three second place, and top three third place entries would progress to the final poll. The top three in this poll would be the winners.

The other option is to have the top FOUR entries from each category go on to the semis. With this setup, however, there would be only two polls, with ten entries in each. The problem here is how to decide which entries go into which poll. My three option would be first and second & third and fourth, first and third & second and fourth, and first and fourth & second and third. All of these have disadvantages that would make them somewhat unfair, so it is difficult to decide which to choose. Whatever the choice there, the top six entries from the poll with the first place entries would progress, and the top four from the other.

One final thing, I'm going to try something new in the Semifinal Polls. I'm going to call it a 'Referendum,' since it's somewhat similar to the political process of the same name. Some of you know (and have responded) to the couple of questions I posed in the RPG Contest #3 topic. Similar questions will appear in poll form in each of the Semis, with a variety of options. Hopefully this will allow us to improve upon the RPG Contest for #4.

Well, the best way to do it would to put The Ranch in the final poll...

JK, the top 3 advancing idea is probably best.

In my mind, the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place polls work pretty well, instead of cramming them all together. Not quite as difficult for voting, I imagine.

I gots an idea! What if there were a poll that didn't affect the end result of the contest. After a 1.5 week entry period, entries are put in a poll that simply gives the RPG makers an idea of how their entry is doing. Then, entrants can modify their entry for the final polls. This voting and entry process may take a while, but would sort of act as a survey to see which RPGs seem to be winners, and allows other entrants a chance to win again. I may simply be speaking out of spite from losing to Jurassic-Nui, but this might be a decent idea.
