Thread: The "General" Superlatives Topic.

    Re: The "General" Superlatives Topic.

    I don't like the idea of nominations, as everyone should be able to cast their actual vote for whom they desire.

    Also, if you resort to polls, they should not show any results until after polling is finished. People shouldn't know who is winning before it is over, as that influences the voting in a bad way.

    But I sort of feel like I'm wasting my time writing this, given ShadowTiger's history of blithefully ignoring my suggestions and continuing with his original modus operandi.

    I was hoping this would be the way it would work, that you can't click any sort of "view results" before you've voted. Technically, it's already a popularity context, but it shouldn't be a SKEWED popularity contest. :p

    I don't like the idea of nominations, as everyone should be able to cast their actual vote for whom they desire.
    It seems that if you had ideas for one or more people that you'd like to vote for, they would be the people that you nominate in the first place. Thus, their place on the ballots are ensured. If you didn't nominate them, then you probably had someone better in mind, and it is they who need to be voted upon.

    But I sort of feel like I'm wasting my time writing this, given ShadowTiger's history of blithefully ignoring my suggestions and continuing with his original modus operandi.
    No bloody idea what you mean, but as I've said before, they're not my Superlatives. I just volunteered to do all the work nobody else would have wanted to do, thanks.

    To make Glenn happy and keep him from crying can you just type out the names and put an X or III next to their name in a word document? Nobody will see who is in the lead and it will be a surprise to the end.

    Problem solved.

    I haven't seen any photochopping in a few years. Same for the programmer one.

    Ah, okay, so we now have a different method. This other choice we have is that once we finish the ideas for the categories, you can all just send me your PM's with one (Or two? - We'll talk about that too.) people listed as your votes for each category. Then I'll Put them all together in my PM Box and Wordpad, and just make a single topic in GD with the final results. No muss, no fuss. Just PM me once and wait for the end game. That's it. No choices. Just naming your best bets. You won't see a single poll.

    It's either that, or the method I listed above with the five points. Thoughts?

    I like the second method, where we all just PM you our votes for each catagory. It's ultra private, and efficient in board space.(Although that means that the whole new sub-forum was kinda unessecary.)It'll be some work for you though.

    A quick aside, can we nominate ourselves for anything?

    What do you think, people? Considering that we're skipping the voting/poll stage entirely, it could be Pirates Of The Caribbean 3 all over again.

    There's no way to have a poll and hide the results from members?

    Re: The "General" Superlatives Topic.

    This thread reminds me of one of those annoying committee meetings at my old job, where work-flow processes are discussed ad-nauseum and nothing gets done because no one's really in charge, or the guy who is in charge is not being decisive enough.

    ShadowTiger: Just make up the format yourself, ram it down our throats, post the results, and have a coke. Make a special thread for complaining and just permanently ban anyone who posts in it. Booya.

    Heh, thanks for that. x X, You have no idea how badly I want to do just that. :p

    Just pick the bloody method you want, and let's get started then. I don't want to waste this forum unless more people want me to than not.

    ^^Just pick the method that you like and go with it so we can get started on picking categories.
