does this count as a group? Anyway, I made this thread so that we can talk about the High Council, and not be off-topic/etc. If ERBoH agrees to it, we'll have out High Council set up in a jiffy (a jiffy is an ACTUAL time measurement, it's 1/100 of a second)

well, I believe ERBoH said (some time ago, I'm not 100% sure) that the council had more power than just deciding rap tournament competitors... we'll just have to find out when he comes back.

Meanwhile, it's official! The rap tournament has gone to Aristocracy! (lololololoLOL)

before i said you guys could also nominate the 'members of the month' for each section.

we could do that too if you guys want?
I'm not 100% positive on how the selection process is going to work for a high council choosing people though. that 'each person ranks their top 4' thought i had in the other thread was just an idea. I'm not sure if its the best idea though, idk.

or i can just pick them :p
doesnt matter to me lol.
No one seems to like my 'best battles' for fm erboh though :(

Anytime all the member are the council are on the forum at the same time, we shall call the time duration "Council in Session". This duration of time means that all the members are on the forum, and can perform its duties (whatever those duties are)

Dion
02-26-2012, 01:50 PM
For some time I've been thinking about maybe having a committee or a council that also ran some Group-Related Competitions and Contests. We have this sort of thing on another forum I'm active on, and the committee consists of all Leaders and Co-Leaders and a select few that are not in a group (Therefore bias wouldn't occur). To be straight forward, I am a Leader of a Group on there and this system does help out with a lot of Group Activity.
But if we were to do this idea, all groups would need to have a Co-Leader (it helps take the weight of responsibility off of the leader's back) and this committee should have its own private Sub-Forum or whatever you call it.

Just thought I should suggest it here.

It seems out council is busy indeed. Luckily, we have a month (or less) to work on this process. Should we allow PrinceofPrinces in this council? I say yes

Moving on to further issues, I say we do what you did this month for next month's MotM for each (except Personal Help, and Introduction Sections) section. We choose the candidates, and if we all agree on them, they they'll be voted on by the rest of the forum. The same should go with the rap battles. People enter their rap battles, the council reads through them, pick about 3-4 rap battles (more variety than just two) and then those rap battles can be voted on by the rest of the forum.

In conclusion: Yes, I think we should pick the CANDIDATES for the MotM next month

And Dion, what a wonderful idea, I agree with Dion's statement of having a co-leader

Okay, we take all the rap battles that everyone has entered and put the list in a randomizer. Then we take each pair of rap battles and put them in a poll for people to vote on.

Example:

Batman vs Sherlock Holmes (Dion)
GoB vs the Forum (God of Bronies)


People vote on which one was better, and the winning battle moves on into the tournament. It continues on until we're down to one rap battles. ;p

Also, going back onto the Group Council topic, would it be too much to ask that Epicz members have a coloured name?
I mean, if you guys don't want a COLOURED name, you could always just use this hex colour: #105289.

It'd look like this; LAWLzoR
It's exactly the same colour as regular members, but bolded.

It'd be reeeaaally helpful if you did so because it's hard enough knowing who IS and who ISN'T in your group. :laugh:

thats very thoughtful of you to come up with that idea and find the color dion :)

So the tournament idea is:
battle1
vs
battle2

battle3
vs
battle4

Then if battle 1 and battle 3 win the votes, then:
battle1
vs
battle3

Is that how your saying it would work?

sounds confusing. I think the forum would like it how we had it earlier. We pick the top 4 (more or less) and they vote on it. The tournament would be very time consuming, and would result in hours, maybe even days lost trying to pair up each rap battle.

it's gonna be hard pairing the rap battles to battle against each other. Every rapper has a different writing style, different rhyming style, etc. You can't really compare their work that much. The idea of voting for the best raps is good, but it's gonna be time consuming figuring out which rap battle will face off against another rap battle

And that's exactly what I'm saying. We can post up polls for round one, let them hang there for a few days, and then start round 2, and so on.

Also, to make it interesting we could try this:

If you don't get what I'm showing you, basically we randomize who goes up against who each round.

That's why we randomize it.
Chances they'll be evenly matched? Unlikely, yes, but the point of a tournament is for the better man to advance.
I know a website that can randomize lists, and we can use it for this idea, but that's if people are willing to try it.

I used to have a website that ran tournaments for a game called starcraft 2.

It seems pretty interesting. I think it could work. I might be able to set up a special page for it that has all the voting on it. we could limit it to like 16 or 8 entries.

I think it might be too complex to be a monthly thing. So maybe we'll just keep the top 4 thing for the monthly contest (unless there are other ideas).

And then we can also run the tournament as a fun activity, because it seems like a really cool idea.
I have a lot of work I need to do right now for school and stuff. So I'll be back later~

If we're going to have this many members join the High Council, I suggest ERBoH makes a new thread were people that want to be on it say so and he chooses a select few that he feels are unbias and whatnot.

There are too many people wanting to be on the council...

ERBoH
02-26-2012, 10:54 PM
PoP, PKMN, BSB
The 3 of you shall be council reserves, in the event that a high council member steps down or doesn't feel like reading all the battles and decides to quit.

Anyone that wants to join the 'council reserve' can PM me saying so. Only trust worthy unbias people need apply :)

All council reserves will be called up in A) the order they were approved and B) based on availability.
For example, PoP has first dibs on an open council spot. But if PoP isn't available PKMN has next dibs, then BSB.

POP PKMN BSB all approved as reserve high council wizards

How about this:
The high council reads the rap battles.
Each person ranks what they believe to be the top 5.
Then we convene in the high council private section and talk about why we picked the battles we picked. And then we decide on the top 5 battles that should be voted on.

I post the 5 battles picked, and then they are voted on by the entire forum.
Voting starts the 25th, so you should read/rank them on lets say the 22nd-24th and discuss them then. If any new battles are posted during that time you can just read them and adjust your rankings accordingly.

High council members that should rank what they think are the top 5 battles:

I will weigh in and break any ties but I won't pick the battles, since that would create bias.
