    I saw the thread I think he was banned in, but I'm not sure what is was, because whatever it was was edited pretty quick. It was a couple weeks ago.

    It's a temporary ban? I can remove him if it is going to cause *beef*.

    Also.

    I got SO many nominations which received only one nomination, my rules for cutting down nominations which were my choice was like this.

    Del Murder IIII
    Psychotic IIIII
    Loony BoB I
    Pike IIIIII
    Shlup IIIII
    Raisin IIII
    Aulayna II
    Freya II
    Shorty II
    Pantz II
    Dr Unne II
    Locky IIIIIIIIIIII

    In this round, Locky, Del, Shlup, Pike, Psychotic and Raisin(? ha) all got a tonne more noms than the others, and there was over 5 people in that category with significantly more. They make it. The twofers and onesers don't. This wasn't how all categories worked, as most had a LOT of onesers, and most of the twosers made it.

    I will post this here too, because it's relevant. Let's not make a show of ourselves in regards to the FFXIV nominators.

    Anyone who takes the time to Nominate will have their nominations counted. These are your awards? Then you need to nominate and make them your awards. (I know many of you did though , but this message is for anyone who didn't!) These guys want to get involved, and if they win, then hey - maybe they'll start posting a whole lot more. In fact, a lot of those FFXIV members, actually made up nominations for many of the regular members as well.

    That doesn't make sense to me at all. Why not just be equal for all the members across the board?

    Sarah, the way Tara did it is the exact same way pike mentioned she would run it, and it makes perfect sense to me as well...

    That's not how it works. There's a cutoff which largely depends on the number of nominations received.

    Example let's say we have an award with nominations as follows:

    MOST LIKELY TO BE USED IN PIKE'S EXAMPLE:
    Loony BoB 12
    Iceglow 9
    Del Murder 7
    Mister Adequate 4
    Hypoallergenic Whatever 3
    Sephex 2
    Jinx 2
    Psychotic 2
    Raistlin 1
    Shlup 1
    Jiro 1
    Elskidor 1


    ...then if I were the one running the Ciddies, only the nominations with three or more noms would be in the final running.

    So this is working as intended. You just nominated people that no one else did.

    Depending on who's running the Ciddies this isn't the only qualifying criteria; for example when BoB runs them only registered members active in the last six months can be nominated.

    Okay so what y'all are saying.. Is that each person who is listed in the noms got at least 3 people nomming them to begin with?

    That's my only question.

    Each person who made it to the voting round got two or three nominations per award, yes.

    I'm not 100% sure how Locky's running it but it was probably on an award-by-award basis.

    But yes, pretty much everyone nominated got more than one (probably more than two) nominations. It's how the Ciddies have always been!

    Do Admin nominations still count for double?

    Loony BoB please explain the concept of sliding up the number of nominations needed to be a nominee in order to keep the total number of nominees down so that people aren't voting on a list of 30 candidates. It seems there's a little bit of confusion and ultimately it's only going to cause undue stress to our darling Award Princess.

    Let me also explain what I was confused about in case it's still causing people confusion too. In some previous Ciddies, the votes for Best Member weren't just "pick your winner" but rather a "pick your first, second, and third best member". It's unsurprising that some Americans might find this hard to understand as they use first past the post voting in their political elections, unlike the rest of the sane world that uses preferential.* However, that's not happening and that's fine. Sorry to accidentally start a bunch of trout.

    Lastly: the Fat Chocobos are as much a part of EoFF as any other. They were asked to register at Eyes on Final Fantasy in order to be affiliated with the Fat Chocobos because Loony BoB is an intelligent man who knows how to bring people together. They are entitled to nominate and vote just the same as any other member, and I think discussions surrounding their inclusion serve only to imply that they are not "real" members and that kind of reinforces that nice talk everyone had about cliques at EoFF.

    Please flame me all you like but this is a smurfing internet popularity contest and I think everybody needs to chill out. Award Princess has taken this stressful role and bickering like this just makes it less enjoyable for her. Let's appreciate the hard work she's done so far and try to support her as best we can. At the end of the day, it doesn't matter what happens so long as we have fun​.

    I think it's more cliquish that they only hang out in the game and never come talk to us.

    Anyways, I think we've mostly hugged this one out, so way to start more crap, JIRO.

    And telling them they're not allowed to participate is going to encourage them to participate?
