Miscellenous Face-Offs?

Discussion in 'Serebii.net Discussion' started by Komedic Konservationist, Feb 24, 2006.

    There is already a forum for Pokemon-based face-offs, so why not create one for miscellenous face-offs to go in the miscellenous section? Examples could be a Bands Face-Off, or an Animals Face-Off, or a Celebrity Face-Off. The Pokemon face-offs seem to be quite popular, and miscellenous face-offs would be great imo.
    So, what do you lot think?

    The Face-Offs are majoritively spam as it is and we have been considering getting rid of them...making Miscellaneous ones...its just not necessary

    I'm in the face-offs more than any other section of the forum, and I havn't seen much spam whatsoever. Eversince the rule was intraduced that face-offs had to be appproved, we've seen far less spam.
    And getting rid of the face-offs is the epitome of sin. :<

    As opposed to the Games forum which is a much needed sub-forum making many worthwhile contributions to our loving SPPf community. If you remove the face-offs, it's only fair for you to remove the Games forum, no? Also, since when was majoritively a word?

    Anyway, I don't see the point in Miscellaneous Face-Offs. At least with the Pokemon Face-Offs, there is a limit to how far you can take the one face-off. If you are facing off bands (to use your example, master chuckle) then the only way for it to be totally fair is to face-off EVERY band and quite frankly, that idea is ludicrous. The "good" face-offs we already have are those which have specifics to which they have to stick such as the Shiny/Attack Face-Offs when they were still running. The Pokemon/attacks being faced off were all easily grouped (either by colour or type) and then they could be eliminated thusly. How can you do that by bands? Genres of music are too broad to do that anyway.

    Especially the "Throw an Object at the Above Poster" (Or whatever) thread. Man, that's deep. >_>

    Anyways, like Kinopio said, Miscellaneous face-offs wouldn't really work imo.
     
  6. I don't see a Misc. Face-Offs Section existing, but taking out the Pokemon Face-Offs? Man, that's cruel.
     
  7. Public opinion is against you this time joe, seriously, take out the pokemonn face offs? You cant be serious, half the people coming to this site would stop. Rather, I think you should have a higher consentration of good moderators posistioned there.

    And since when that was a problem to him? YHALOTHAR manga avatars. ;/ Because, of course, the members AREN'T what makes the forum. +Awaits the 'omgifudunlikLEAVElolz' posts+

    Himiko does the job pretty well, I say.

    Really, all I want is a member faceoff. I'm not terribly interested in having faceoffs about various hunting knives or bird eggs or Sino-Tibetan languages, but it'd still be nice to be nice to see another member faceoff considering that we have one for the mods and that the last member faceoff was wildly successful and popular.

    lmao Public opinion isn't against him this time. It's actually against the face-offs. They ARE spam enough as is. "lolz name the bets *enter subject here* with no resoning why!!!1"

    I'll be damned if I have any of that garbage anywhere near the Misc. section.

    And what about the games forum? >__>; Christ, if you take out the face-offs, you should take out the games too. -___-

    Mind you, a chunk of those games are also spam and should be done away with as well as the spam-fest known as "face-offs."

    Face-offs should be done away with completely.

    Public opinion meaning who? The members that post in the face-offs section? Of course they'd be against it, they're the ones that post there. If you mean everyone on the forums, that is a very inaccurate generalization.

    While I do agree face-offs are SPAM (OMG! SHOCK HORRORZ!!!1) I think it is hypocritical and highly biased for the face-offs to be removed while there is hardly a murmur against the games forum. The way I see it, the face-offs aren't really hurting anyone and there in a spot where if you aren't purposely going there, you're not going to be hindered by them so why not leave them? Heaven forbid we should be able to have a bit of fun on a POKEMON FORUM...

    So, you say a chunk as opposed to all of them. Care to show me one (well, besides perhaps the Caption Contest) which isn't spam?

    Face-Offs should remain, IMO. If you delete the Face-Offs, get rid of Games too. Due to the fact, most games have tons of spam in them.

    Just repeating what was already said.

    Really extreme overexaggeration. Not even close to half go in that section.

    WTF? o_O


    And if the face-offs stay or go doesn't really matter to me. They're kinda fun but aren't necessary. They're just polls that have turned into games.

    As for the member face-off, there's a rule for no more non-Pokemon face-offs since it's a Pokemon face-offs section. The reason the mod one's still there is because it was started before the rule was made. And the member one ended before the rule was made hence why it wasn't continued.

    And Games and Face-offs are different. Like I already stated, Face-offs are just a different kind of poll so they're not really needed because we have a pokepolls section. Games are different. They're not like polls or anything so if we got rid of that section then we wouldn't have a place to put things like them. And the games section is way more popular than the face-offs.

    Getting rid of face-offs because Serebii and a bunch of mods disapprove of them is like a prime-minister banning lamb-and-mint sauce because he's allergic to it. If you lot don't like it, then leave it alone and let it be a respice for people who actually appreciate it.
    If you get rid of face-offs, you might as well get as rid of games; or RPGs, or Fan-Art, or Fan-Fiction, or any type of fun-based forum. Remember that Pokemon is a fun-based franchise, meaning forums based around it should be fun aswell. Does anyone really want forums to just be arguments over how Dodrio can use Fly when it hasn't got wings, or repetitive polls on ''what's your favourite Pokemon/character/generation/ect. Without games and fan-product sections and face-offs and RPGs to add a bit of variety, fun, and fresh-air, the forum would just turn into a stale, debate/poll-based chatroom.

    Miscellenous Face-Offs? Maybe, but i don't think so...
    Even so, deleting the pokemon face-off section...well, it's true some (or more than 'some') posts are SPAM, but even so, it's a funny section where people see if the pokemon they bet won. It's like a Casino, and there can't be life without Casinos! [/random]...

    That is completely illogical. People put work into RPGs, Fan art, and fanfiction. On the other hand, face offs are just "I vote for _____" where's the effort? There's none at all. Its 10 or less word posts to see who wins a contest with no prize.

    Don't start mixing things that have absolutely nothing to do with each other.

    Kaiserin please wake up...


    We don't want rid of them because we don't like them, sugarplum. We want rid of them because they require little to no effort and are, collectively, spam.

    It's not that hard to comprehend.
