TEN: A Pokemon Face-Off Series

Discussion in 'Face-Offs' started by YellowHat's Revenge, Jan 24, 2013.

  1. ;125;Brought to you in part by nostalgia.;125;
    Hey all, I'm YellowHat if you don't remember me from 6 years ago when I first started creating Face-Offs here at SPPf. In fact, this is my first face-off since 2010. It's good to be back.​

    So here's how this is gonna work. First, some ground rules:

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    THE RULES:

    1. Please follow all SPPf rules, particularly FO forum rules.
    2. Do not tally unless you are designated an Official Tallyist by me (don't worry, it's not a hard position to get, you just have to ask first). :)
    3. Familiarize yourself with the voting method. Also be aware of any changes made to the method from FO to FO.
    - PLEASE NOTE: If you do not follow the proper voting method, I'll warn you the first time, then report you the 2nd time. But don't worry, I know the difference between an honest mistake and a blatant disregard for the rules. I promise I'm nice. :)
    4. Please make an honest effort to delete any double posts you happen to make.
    5. Conversational posts are allowed between FO's, just don't let it get out of hand. I will, of course need plenty of suggestions and feedback from you guys as to what we should do for future FO's.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Alright, formalities aside, let's get started.
    You may find yourself asking, "YellowHat, what's the TEN mean?"

    (THE FOLLOWING IS A DRAMATIZATION OF HYPOTHETICAL EVENTS)

    You: YellowHat, what's the TEN mean?
    Me: Why, it's a number my good fellow!
    You: But... What does it mean HERE?
    Me: Why, that's the number of votes you get each time you post to do with as you please!

    (END DRAMATIZATION)

    That's right, 10 votes every post. Posts will be every 6 hours for now. I'll be watching your post times to be sure, of course, but for the most part we're on an honor system here.

  3. Agreed.
    OFFICIAL RULE CHANGE since it's early enough that people haven't gotten used to it. Voting will be every 6 hours, so you can vote up to 4 times a day. Just no double posting.

    I like this 10 however-you-like point system.
     
  5. I'm glad. Only thing I'm debating on is the period between votes. While I don't want it to be a "post whenever you want" thing (because it would be too easy to spam +/- 10's), I also don't want to alienate people by making it too long.
    So how does everyone (all two of you so far) feel about 6 hours? Too long? Just right?

    I like the 6 hour wait. If you feel it's too long, I think 4 hours would be great too.

    you won't abandon this face off like all your others will you Yellow? ;)
     
  13. haha, what's up pikasaur? I will do my best to keep up with it so long as my schedule permits. Every time I leave the forums it's due to some monumental change in my life, but now that I'm in college I have a lot more free time than I did in high school.
