Polls

Post by Sibylla Aaeru on Fri Aug 06, 2010 12:09 am

Right so since we have this board now and since it's still Summer of Simoun, I thought we could do a few polls to wrap things up, especially since some of us are rewatching and finding new appreciation for certain characters, or building on hate for others.

Now I want to do this right so I wanted to get some feedback before I put them together. This is what I was thinking of. It's in the style of the polls that were done when the show was airing in Japan.

Favorite character poll (You get 2 choices)
- One poll for only Sibyllae (any, and not just Tempest because otherwise Vyura couldn't be there)
- One poll for all other characters

Least favorite character poll (You also get 2 choices)
- One poll for only Sibyllae
- One poll for all other characters

Now I chose to do favorite and least favorite separately because this is such a small fandom. When one choses a favorite, there will be a lot of "least favorites". So I figured it was better to target them separately. After all, we'd like to see just how much hate there is for defense minister, right?

Let me know your own ideas and I'll see how we can mesh 'em all together. If you have other poll ideas, submit those as well. Just no voting XD None of this is set up yet.

If you include the defense minister in the "other characters" least favorite poll nobody else will get votes.
Do it anyway. It'll make me laugh.

Anyway on a more serious note, polls would be cool. Separate favorite and least favorite polls is good. I wonder if there should be other more specific categories though...some serious and some silly. I can't think of a lot of examples right now. Maybe "character you thought you wouldn't like but did" and the reverse of that? And some silly things like...I don't know..."character you would be BFFs with," etc.? I can't think of good examples for that either. I'll work on it. XD

Well we'd at least know that everyone agreed with us!

Separate polls... well to do as many polls as you are suggesting, we'd need to do weekly polls, which is totally cool with me. Poll of the week!

Oh, I was actually thinking of having a bunch of polls all at once (or in batches...like, "favorite/least favorite," "other serious polls," "silly polls," etc.). Whatever you decide is fine though.

It's not that. I just think it'd be poll overload to do so many at once. I mean, with the favorites and least favorites, there has to be two polls going at once for each set. I don't want to overload people with choices...maybe I could do a random drawing sort of contest with each poll or something...hmm

I think that, since most of the characters are in Chor Tempest and Vyura does not show up until relatively late in the game, she could actually be put in with 'all others'. Think about it. There are twelve 'core' sibyllae. For other characters we have...Anubituf, Guragief, [Vyura], Onashia, the High Priestess, the Defence Minister, Wapourif, Wauf, Halconf, and Angulas. Ten characters. That's still fewer than the 'core' sibyllae, and EVEN IF we add Erif and Amuria it only balances out.

I like the idea of, say, two polls a week from here on out? I can think of Favourite Episodes (or even just Favourite Arcs: the pre-Dominura episodes, the episodes centred around the peace-talks fiasco, the Messis episodes, the episodes centred around the two prominent deaths and funerals, and the final set), Favourite Pairings (THAT ONE WE MUST DO), &c. that I would like to see.

I agree that Vyura, while technically in Tempest at one point, probably is more of an "other" character if the point of separating them is having a "main character" poll and a "side character" poll. I mean, she's a sibylla, yes, but actually more of a minor character than some of the adults, and I think main/side character would make more sense as a distinction than sibylla/adult (and that way Erif and Amuria would be in the "other" as well like you say).

Favorite episodes I considered but with 26 poll options and a small fandom it'd be really spread-out (unless you could vote as many times as you wanted?) so I like the idea of "favorite arcs." I was going to request favorite pairings but figured various people's preferences had already been made clear, but having it in a poll would still be good (I think like the favorite character polls that poll should have 2 votes for everyone though).

Ah when I was thinking Sibyllae/everyone else it wasn't to designate between main and side character, just who was Sibyllae and who was not. I actually wasn't thinking of main/side, just who is and isn't Sibyllae.

I do agree that the fandom is probably too small to do a favorite episode. If it were a larger fandom, then it would work. And no, you could not have the power to vote as much as you wanted on that XD Two votes for any poll. Some of you might get a little click happy...kinda like you get a little caps happy and I wake up to many emails in my inbox... XD

Other ideas?

Ah. Well, I think main/side might be a more useful distinction (with "main" being the core 12 sibyllae in Chor Tempest) but I don't know that it matters that much.

By the way, how are these polls being conducted? I'm assuming the LJ comm?

"kinda like you get a little caps happy and I wake up to many emails in my inbox... XD"

Your inbox is probably flooded with a capslock conversation Nathan and I had last night on your LJ involving how much he loves lesbian priestesses. You're welcome.

Which basically makes it Chor Tempest/Everyone Else. Gotcha.

I'm not sure if I want to do LJ or not. I might just do here. If I use an outside poll service, I can easily do it both places and that might give a better record of fans. I just have to make sure that someone can only vote one time. That becomes the issue.

Yes, I read that conversation this morning before I went to school. It was rather amusing to read first thing in the morning.
