By a result of some events, We had acrossed some misunderstanding, which has lead to creating this topic. However I still stand still with the idea, coz It's simply good.
However, as I said, there must be some changes applied, otherwise this year's awards might actually never happen, because they wouldn't matter.
I've talked with Paset about a new voting system for upcoming PCS awards and here's what We came up with.
The entire process would have 4 phases.
-> Mangment in some special topic would discuss which categories are going to be in the PCS Awards. Wether they're going to decide on using old categories or come up with some new ideas, it would be entirely up to them.
-> Once the categories are set, We move to..
-> Admin would create a totally new forum called PCS Awards 2017 that would be visible to all PCS members.
-> Admin/Moderator would create a topic for each category inside the forum.
-> In each topic, every member of PCS would be able to propose between 1 to 5 candidats that in his opinion are the one's that should be considered for a category win.
~ The topic should be STRICTLY moderated. Inside of those topics should be just posts with names/nicks and nothing more. No discussion, no arguments, no flames, just posts with names. Simply delete everything else
~ You could say that people could just make more accounts and vote like that. NO. It wouldn't work like that. Once votes starts, every post made with account made AFTER or in the same day as the voting started WOULDN'T COUNT.
-> Once making propositions ends, we move to quick and small...
-> One responsible guy would have to sit and count down all the propositions and then pick 5/6 propositions that had the most votes.
-> Managment (by that i mean not only Andrez, but also entire managment) would agree on 7 or 9 or 11 people. Those people would have to be active in the both forum and game, so they know everything going on around the site. [As of my propostions right now (for 11 candidates) 1) Andrez 2) Milriko 3) Lord 4) Paset 5) st0rm 6) skrillex 7) szoks me 9) Noctis 10) Chrome or United 11) Pardon - the list of cours can be bigger or shorten, these are just my propositions.]
~ We could create a special group called PCS Voters (or something like that, It doesn't matter), they would have acces to PCS management AWARDS forum, just for the voting time, then it would be removed.
-> Once we pick those people we move to...
-> The voters we picked would have to vote in every category.
Here's some Quick guideline.
1) You can't vote for yourself
2) You only have 1 vote in each category
3) You have to explain why you picked someone in the topic, it doesn't have to be an essay, 2-3 small sentences on why you decided to pick this one particular guy.
4) You have to vote in every category.
5) Try to be as objective as possible
6) Don't guide yourself with stuff like "I don't like this guy" or shit like that.
-> The vote ends, We have the winners, Yay!
Of cours, there are lot of things that need to be discussed in order to make everything work fair and properly. We would probably also have to rework all the categories, so they're simply better than before.
I was also thinking on creating small logotypes/banners/signatures for every winner so he could wear it in his profile untill next PCS awards edition comes.
What do you think?
