Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

BKB, perhaps we (including Shock) should divide up "responsibilities" in the section, as it were. It would make things easier for us. I'm heading off soon, but I will PM you and Shock later and elaborate more on this.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

@OML -- too lazy to quote him the same argument can be made for the tournament and the same guys would always win. It is an opportunity for new guys that don't get that much exposure to be heard and seen around the section and test their abilities amongst the greatest. And same as awards, it's a nice thing to see how you stand amongst the rest.

I read just about everything in the section. Only two guys who have threads (or a thread, to be more accurate) who wouldn't be nominated for the awards would have a real chance at winning the tournament, imo. Neither of them will compete though. I could be wrong and someone could surprise me, but that's just my take.

I understand your want for a tournament being someone who feels they're underrated, and it may happen, but it doesn't mean awards need to be replaced.

edit - Pretty much, HH.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

nor do i want them to be replaced. I mean they are important and give payoff to the best of the best and their work.

I was just responding to whoever said that we could only do one at a time. Which doesnt make sense bc wat does one have to do with the other? I mean will the board crash if more than one thing happens at the same time..

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

If you will be having some tourney or awards or some stuff, is there a prize or something? Like the winner will earn a lot of credits or etc.

Just askin though. But, ofcourse HOF 2011 induction is still on the works. How a tournament on a BTB thread works? Well, I don't know though. I only signed up here last month.

I think it's great that this is bringing conversation and discussion to the thread, but we don't want to put too many people to be in charge of the tournament because then there'll never be an agreement as to what one person wants to do because then another person will want to do something busy. Very similar to why a booker is in charge of ONE show if he were to be in a joint-BTB project, where one person takes one show and another person takes another show. You never see a BTB where only RAW is being written and every other week the writer switches off with another one.

So while it's great people want to be in charge of the tournament or help come up with ideas, I really think it should be one person (two may be a bit pushing it) having to answer to the moderators or just proof it with them before things get posted and updated, which therefore there will not be any arguments or headbutting between the two (or more people) in charge of the tournament.

The last thing we need is another BTB Tournament that fails. I have a lot of time on my hands, I keep trying to think of BTB's to write but I'm never motivated to put my ideas on paper and be consistent, but I do enjoy hosting things like this, as I've hosted a lot of "mafia" games in the Mafia Section (cheap plug for that section) I really would like the chance to do this, with the mods obviously supervising it and definitely helping me get a judging team of 3 or 4 people, which I'm sure they'll be able to convince some of the greats to judge. Then maybe have back-up judges in case the actual judges no-show or go MIA. I'm doing a lot of pre-planning already, and once I have a system set up, and take a look at past tournament formats, I'll have a big and stable plan that I can then present to WCW Rules, BKB Hulk, and Shock.

Whatya think?

I have almost 2 trillion credits, they don't mean anything, I guess I can give a trillion credits to someone, or a bunch of the mods and myself can distribute credits to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place people? Maybe have their thread stickied, this is something I'd talk to the mods about once I start doing things.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

Just Leeroy and the mods would probably work, but Shock may want to compete too to try beat Melvisboy. I'd be fine with doing some judging.

And yeah, I'll donate credits if people want them.

Right. This seems to be going in a circle now, so I'm done with it.

this was something talked about last time there was a tournament that the winner had their thread stickied for everyone to come and see for a fortnight or something like that.

It's also a way for each booker to get feedback from whoever was the judge of their match/promo/whatever. So even when someone gets eliminated from the tournament the judge will say what they liked and disliked about whatever it was you wrote.
