I'm happy either way, let's just get this started! Someone might submit in the next two days or something.

I don't know how many people were itching to go back to voting, anyways. I am vocal enough about my feelings, but I'll bow out to going back to rankings, if that's what the majority wants.

It would have been a refreshing change, but if it's not going to work, it's not going to work.

Dammit, Bonnie.

I prefer rankings over battles myself.

Yeah, I also prefer rankings; it's certainly a more thorough evaluation.

Eh, maybe for top and bottom, but my rankings past, about, 1-5 are completely arbitrary. It's just too many things to put in a numerical list.

However, I fully believe, based on what we've seen already, that were we to do head to head competition, we would get very disappointing participation numbers in the voting rounds, and for that reason, the rankings really are basically the only option.

I really don't prefer rankings because I feel everyone just makes shit up at the last second so they don't get removed from the competition, whereas regular polls would give everyone a more structured excuse to listen to each list. Plus, everyone in group 4 gets screwed over. Hardly anyone is listening by then, judging by the activity in past threads. I wish the listening threads didn't have to be staggered, but they really do. It's impossible to throw out all 19 lists at once.

Anyway, ranking is really the only option, so I'm good with it. Give me until tomorrow to get things organized and we'll proceed.

Yeah, I agree with this. I also have a hard time ranking these lists, whereas it's easier to choose a favorite between two.

Why not just have one poll with three lists then?

Rankings aren't my preferred method either. What if we created one thread per week for discussing and listening to a few lists at a time? That addresses the level of engagement that polls generate while getting around not having them in the first place.

19 is a prime number. Dividing by three will still leave one out.

I like this idea. We were going to handle discussions this way anyhow.

Is a week long enough for everybody? That's my only concern.

I'd be down for this.

Come on man I wasn't that bad at maths

I meant eight 1v1 polls, plus one 1v1v1 poll.
