Default Most Recent Rankings



FEBRUARY 2016 DOTM RANKINGS




As you'll notice below; the ranking table has been cut down to 5. This is to reflect the smaller pool of diaries being voted for (and to save me some time). Another great month for diaries and it was tough to split at the top - but one man pulled clear to take a well deserved crown - Beejus.

You'll also notice the smaller awards have been removed as well.

Default Rules and Criteria



RULES AND CRITERIA



Version: 1.2
Updated: 1 November 2015



PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A PREVIEW OF THE RULES AND CRITERIA POST - DO NOT VOTE IN THIS THREAD


Welcome to the new look "Diary of the Month" awards. This is the voting thread for the October 2015 awards.

The onus is now on you the reader to vote for a maximum of your favourite FIVE diaries from the last month in order to ensure that your favourites rank as highly as possible. The process is now more streamlined; this voting thread will stay open for one week; and then the rankings will be revealed.

It's very simple, choose a maximum of five diaries and rank them. Provided they meet the basic criteria below, each diary will receive points based on your nomination and the total points will form the DOTM rankings at month-end.

Criteria:
  1. You can not vote for your own diary.
  2. The diary must be posted within the Total Extreme Wrestling 2013 Dynasties forum. (No other diaries will be considered eligible).
  3. The diary must have had two or more show posted within the current calendar month.
  4. Please give a reason for voting for at least your number one vote. Use any other reasoning or comments to promote the diaries you have voted for.
  5. Please vote using the full title of the diary as it appears in the thread listing. If it is not clear which diary you are voting for the vote may not count. (A direct link is not required)

You can vote for diaries using any mod or timeframe; as long as they meet the criteria above, your vote will count.

The DOTM voting process will last for one week with a ranking posted during the following week. A main DOTM winner will be declared; with smaller awards given to the highest ranking diary from the following areas:
  • Real world
  • Cornellverse
  • Thunderverse
  • Other mod
  • New Writer (not a member of the hall of fame, a previous award winner and fewer than five appearances in the DOTM rankings)

Points:
1st = 5 points
2nd = 4 points
3rd = 3 points
4th = 2 points
5th = 1 point



Voting closes at 23:59 GMT on November 8th 2015.



For more information, please visit the main Diary of the Month thread.

This thread is currently a work in progress that will keep changing over time. As noted in the first post, any comments or thoughts will be openly accepted and taken on board.

As a bit of housekeeping; I shall have a draft of the rules and criteria posted tomorrow hopefully and open them up for a 24/48-hour consultation before going live with the September voting thread later in the week.

Over time this thread will house everything (either in this thread or linked to) related to this new format of the DOTM awards.

Please bare with me as we get through the early weeks and months. There will no doubt be a few teething problems along the way; but with your support we should overcome any obstacles.

Thank you for stepping up and taking care of this, Anderz. I agree, there has been a need to "change things up" in this regard (as it's become rather stale in the DOTM department). I look forward to what you do with this & will be an avid voter each month.

This in mind, I thought of a rule that you guys should consider. I think someone should post at least two shows a month to be considered for DOTM. Now, that doesn't sound like a huge change, but consider how often someone (even myself.... especially myself sometimes) can slack off for a month, post one show toward the end of the month, and get nominated for it. That's fine if you're still running a monthly spotlight, but that doesn't scream "I am the best diary of the month"; it just means you posted one show. But if you have to do two shows in a month, then it shows that your diary is active enough to be considered top class in your month. What do you think?

I like this rule Beejus. Good addition IMO.

And thank you Anderz for stepping up on this. I'm excited to see it in action. Kind of reminds me of the old WCW/Bill Watts era Top 10.

Currently I have it as one show or significant update but I can definitely see the reasoning for two shows and perhaps even get rid of the 'significant update' as it was always a grey area for me. It's one of the (many) areas I was going to ask for feedback on when I post the full rules & criteria later today. But you do raise a very good point and one I'm more than happy to go with.

The biggest problem I see with this would be it limits the options of who you can vote for. I believe this was the rule that was in place before and it was switched over to one show a month because there were not enough candidates. I really do not care one way or the other but I just wanted to play devil's advocate here because someone is bound to bring up what I just said.

I've posted the current mock-up of the voting thread above; please get thoughts and comments in within the next 24 hours as I will be aiming to go live tomorrow.

Paticular areas I'm interested in thoughts on:
  1. Any glaring ommisions from the criteria; I've tried to keep it deliberately short.
  2. Current only one show in the month is needed to qualify; should this be two?
  3. Any other minor awards you'd like me to consider? particularly any other mod that may warrant it's own sub-section.

Thanks for all your help everyone.

1 - Nothing missing from me
2 - I'd go with two. Realistically that's a show every two weeks if you want to qualify for that month, it's not an unobtainable number of shows to do in a month.
3 - I'd say it all looks good. Liking the five categories as they stand.

fewer candidates might actually be a good thing. We are focused in on the truly best diaries of THAT month -- rather than possibly that one show might be good enough to siphon off a few votes from loyal readers, but not the best of the month. If there are only 2-3 diaries that are active in a given month, then make an exception, but for most it's not an issue to put on 2 shows

Would not hurt my feelings if the nominations made by the readers went to a committee who picked a top 5 -- but oh what a can of worms that would open
