    Default Crossover Contests

    I would like us to have a subforum the contest hall for crossovers.

    Crossovers?

    And why would we need an entire sub-forum?

    Saying we need it just because makes no sense.

    I believe the Contest Hall staff's opinion on crossover contests was that they are not needed. Can't say for sure, though.

    I have only ever seen 2 threads for crossover contests so I dont think it needs a whole sub-forums for them.

    We decided to forbid these kind of contests because they were simply getting out of hand, and I doubt it would be any different if we let them run free again.

    I enjoy a good contest between different worlds. Helps keep things interesting.

    UP.

    YouTube projects advertised are in early development and subject to change.

    If the Contest Hall staff has decided that, then voting wont make a difference. Closed.

    We'd like to gauge the interest in this.

    I find the contest hall itself just comparing random Pokemon based on the most arbitrary relationships, I doubt crossovers would provide more interesting discussions, even though I see the potential for such discussions to occur.

    I'd like to see what these threads would be like before I vote, but they'd probably end up like most of the other threads.

    Outrage, that vote sounded like a:
    "the contest hall sucks, why expand it?" type vote, without a real reasoning other than the fact that (oh the irony) you are comparing this to something completely different to what it is.
    If we are having a battle and I disconnect, it is 100% unintentional; my power goes off often and each time my modem resets.

    Gone until Aug, 10 or something for a trip w/out net access. C u after that. If I suddenly dissapear after that you can bet I got bad grades on my IGCSE's, since results are coming out the week afterwards.

    ^ Agreed.

    UP. It would be cool to compare things from different worlds, and see how they'd do against each other.

    Maybe they would have to be approved?

    up

    If there aren't enough staff members to constantly check the approval thread, then maybe it can wait until the overgrow II staff drive?

    And rather than explaining yourself in a way that may change my vote as I had mentioned that I do see potential for it, you instead choose to act in such a nonconstructive manner which amounts to "your opinion sucks, don't listen to it" with an overtone of mockery.

    How exactly is it, as you say, completely different? The contest hall, in essence compares two (or more) subjects, and in most cases wind up as a popularity contest rather than a real discussion, which honestly wouldn't be that bad if people didn't act like their opinion is anything but that. A cross-over contest hall would be "completely" different how? It would serve the same basic function, but on a cross-media scale.

    To be honest, I never go to this area and don't really care, however I just felt like your vote wasn't justified and as such didn't contribute.

    And as far as I have seen, they are completely different because of the aspect where you can't bring up similar numbers. I can say Metagross is better than Registeel because it has a higher BST, but I cant compare Pikachu to Sonic the Hedgehog in the same way. As such it is quite different, since you don't have a common way of rating.

    I mostly agree with the points that Outrage has said. It is mostly a popular contest and to be honest, while I think that the opposing franchise/character/thing may get a few votes, this is a Pokémon website after all and so I think that the Pokémon choice would mainly be victorious.

    While I think that is a fair way of comparing two Pokémon in a competitive battling regard, a lot of people don't take that into consideration for their vote from what I have seen (not everyone is a competitive battler after all) so I don't think that is really an issue. The way that someone rates in the Contest Hall seems to be unique, so I don't think that a common rating is an issue with the current Contest Hall.

    I don't want to vote just yet though as I plan to look at the previous crossover threads and see how they were, but I think I'll probably vote down from what ghaskan has said and from the points that Outrage made.
