I hate to go on about this constantly and I apologise in advance because it is probably extrenely annoying that you keep seeing me whine and winge about the Super-Powered War but as pointed out by Pach in a recent discussion, it is evidently the voting demand of the Super-Powered War which is putting off voters and in turn causing inactivty which locks the blog's comments.
As such, since this is just as much your event as it is mine due to you all providing fantastic heroes and villains - I want to discuss the possibility of changing the voting style to something more suitable to the large content the blog has.
The proposed format in my discussion with Pach (By him kindly) was a tally and summary system.
Essentially, users would look at the three sections by which the match ups are split up: Leader, Higher and Lower Tier.
They would then tally the survivors of the match ups based on who they think would win, e.g. Lower Tier: Heroes: 9 Villains: 3 or something like then provide a summary of how and/or why. Ultimatley, you'd have 3 tallies of the survivors of the Leader, Higher and Lower tier and 3 summaries and then possibly some concluding notes on the ultimate winner.
It is undoubtable that this change in voting style would be much smaller than the match up per match up style I currently have in place and as such, more people could hopefully vote sooner and the blog could end much sooner.
Here's a poll if you're lazy:
Let me know what you think of this, it is good? Bad? Awful? Got any ideas yourself?
Whatever voting style is decided, I'm probably going too reupload the blog with the new voting style if a new one is brought in.
