    Default Best Episodes of BtVS

    It's been just shy of six years since we've done a 'best episodes' elimination game! Let's see if there are enough people around at the moment to do another. Just to be a bit different, I thought if we went for getting down to a top three for each season we could then put those against all the other seasons' top threes to come up with an overall top 5 of the series.

    Rules
    Previously we have said you can only vote after 3 other people have voted, or 2 days has passed. So let's try that at first because it doesn't work well if there isn't a mix of opinions being taken into account. All episodes start with 5 points.

    'Reply with quote' to the last post and then choose an episode to award one point to and one to take one point away from (tell us which beside the + and - above the episode list). Update the points then post. We will reset the points to 5 each for those that remain at a few stages (as specified below).

    So let's get going with Season 1 and see how it pans out.

    I don't think that "only vote after 3 people have voted" is the best rule - as it can result in either the game getting stuck for a long time because there aren't enough people playing it at the time, or the same 4 people always voting in the same order.
    We used to have the rule in most games that was "only after 3 people have voted, or [insert an amount of time] has passed since the last vote". It was usually a day, I think, but since the forum is slower, if not enough people join, maybe we should make it longer, like 2 or 3 days, to give a chance for more people to join?

    This looks fun but can we run another game at the Same time? How about instead of picking favourites each season each episode competes against the on before it to see who wins. Last episode standing is most popular. Example S1 E1 against S1 E2 winner goes on to compete against S1 E3. We will know the most popular episodes because of the length of time they stay in the game. What do you think? New twist?

    Sure, that sounds like a good idea. I've added to the first post that it is "after 3 people have voted, or 2 days has passed".

    So presumably this means I could revote now, as 3 people in total have voted so far (myself, yourself & Priceless).

    I think that sounds like a fun idea but I'm not sure about running the two things at the same time. They'd work at very different paces and so the '1-on-1 battles' would reveal favourites way before the elimination game got there. Perhaps we could try the battles idea after, or try that format with a different list (like villains or favourite minor characters)??

    I thought you meant after three other people have voted? I don't remember what the old rule was.

    I agree we better avoid two similar games at the same yime.
    You keep waiting for the dust to settle and then you realize it; the dust is your life going on. If happy comes along - that weird unbearable delight that's actual happy - I think you have to grab it while you can. You take what you can get, 'cause it's here, and then...gone.

    I had originally put it as 3 other people before you vote again yourself, but I thought you were suggesting changing it to just 3 people in total plus the time limit. I have checked back on an old thread and that was 3 other people so I have changed it back. It now says "you can only vote after 3 other people have voted, or 2 days has passed".

    So come on GoSpuffy, join in and we'll have our minimum of 4 people and hopefully others will join too!

    Not quite as you haven't gone from the last vote. You need to copy the post of the last person who voted (Priceless this time). So you would click 'reply with quote' at the bottom of Priceless' post and it would put her post into a quote in your text box.

    1. Then delete the person's name and the quote coding and just keep the body of the text for your post.
    2. Write the episode you want to give a point to next to the + sign above the list of episodes.
    3. Write the episode you want to take a point away from next to the - sign above the list of episodes.
    4. Amend the points next to those episodes in the list (from the numbers you gained in the quoted post)

    I saw, I voted after you.

    You don't have to do anything about the reset or elimination. When the first episode gets voted off it will be written down as the eliminated episode number 12 and those voted off after that will be listed one at a time against decreasing numbers. When we have voted and have eliminated the ones in the 12th, 11th and 10th places there will be 9 episodes remaining. This is the first reset trigger. All points will be returned to 5 and it just continues again as the previous voting did. This stops one episode building up an indestructible number of points. It will then be reset again when there are 5 episodes left. The other seasons that have more episodes will have an additional reset trigger added for when there are 15 episodes remaining.

    Does that all make sense?

    Clear as mud! I'll play but you might want to check my votes in case I don't really know what I'm doing.
