Idea for this year to make it a bit easier for people to follow the major MOTYCs. Instead of people having to go through nearly every post looking for nominations, someone keeps an updated list of nominations. It'd require a cut off point and for people to formally nominate something as an actual MOTYC but if you use ****1/4 as that point then it should work without turning into Alan4L's MOTYC list. Platt's already made the OP but I can obviously edit stuff in if someone updates the list every other week for example. I'll try and break it down into simplest terms. Imagine it looking something like this:

2014 MOTYC Nominations (OP)
*Italics = 3-8 Nominations*
*Bold = 8+ Nominations*


Shinsuke Nakamura vs Hiroshi Tanahashi - NJPW 01/04/2014 - 10 NOMINATIONS
Kazuchika Okada vs Tetsuya Naito - NJPW 01/04/2014 - 6 NOMINATIONS
Prince Devitt vs Kota Ibushi - NJPW 01/04/2014 - 2 NOMINATIONS

Then if someone rates Goto/Shibata ****1/4 or higher or formally nominates it you add it as a nomination to the main list. It'll make it much easier for non regular viewers of the thread to find the main MOTYCs to watch as well as for people finding stuff they may have missed or more niche nominations like CMLL or BJW MOTYCs.

I love this idea, Seabs. Are you planning to tally and add nominations to that post in particular?

PLEASE do that. As seen on some other sites, it makes the whole function of a MOTYC thread much more useful.

A threshold is not a good idea though. Then it's a nuisance, and you're asking people to follow someone elses criteria for how to rate matches. I don't give out ****+ more than 5-10 times a year, that's what I prefer. I think following the example of similar MOTYC threads is best, and people here should be nominating matches and voting yes if they agree and want to add their vote to the overall list. Much easier. People can give out their ratings or whatever as they discuss the match but it's not a part of making an overall concensus list.

The threshold was just a guide so people don't start nominating ***1/2 matches. If it gets beyond top 20 MOTYCS then the list will be too excessive. That doesn't mean you can't talk about anything else but save the nomination list for actual MOTYCs. Someone else can use my idea and tally up and I'll edit the OP for them.

Good idea. Last year I went through like 50 pages starting in January just trying to find matches to watch.

I think the between a lot of people's running lists that should be rather helpful if more people do them.

I like the idea but yeah this year it'd probably be more of a work-in-progress with the size of the community that talks about MOTYC compared to a WKO or DVDVR. I'D PERSONALLY SAY ****+ or a simple NOM/YES vote would work best for this year. Cause with any barrier for a community list I'd probably boost up ratings of certain matches and it probably would just be easier to say YES or so. In which case matches that fit in Seabs bold perimeters or maybe italics would be on the SHOWING list with the other matches in a spoiler. Possibility.

This only happens though if someone is willing to tally...

I'll probably be the only one who doesn't participate in the communal list. I got my system and it works. It's a good idea & certainly helpful to those who pop in here only to see the top recs.

Good to know. Thank you.

I really like this idea, honestly. As somebody who lurked for the majority of last year and had to follow this thread post-by-post to check out things that I might have missed out on, I can say with certainty that this idea would've made things easier for me. I know I'm just the new guy, but I certainly wouldn't mind being the guy to do the tallying. Just let me know. You can PM me if you want in order for us to discuss the specifics.
