An Idea for the Mainland

Postby DReager1 » Sat Mar 24, 2012 8:09 pm

Well this idea would take a lot of work, so instead of the Admin doing it by himself I thought the Mods could do it. Or (If it's canon. I'm not sure if you guys support it or if it's fan amde but) The Factpile wiki could do it. Factpile could have a rankings system. Like this,

29th Megaman X 11-2 .846

30th Yusuke 21-4 .840

31st Slur 10-2 .833
31st Red 5-1 .833

The Records could be based on votes for matches. So ones without FP awards, but with a solid vote that has at least 15 votes, like say Dante vs Kratos. Since Dante is winning the vote count he'd get a win and Kratos would get a loss. So it'd look like this,

Dante 1-0
Kratos 0-1

And so on. It would just be a lot of work to look through each match and take a vote. So maybe we could install a voting system, like a poll. Anyway just ideas I wanted to throw up there.

@Mods Sorry if this is in the wrong section. It seemed like the right one, but I wasn't sure

Ranking is a really bad idea. There are at least over 9000 universes with at least 200 characters in each of them. Not to mention, how are we going to rank omnipotents?

Aside from the ranking idea, the voting idea is actually a good idea. However, it must be there after facts and evidence are shown/posted, and the voting system must be for the winning/superior opponent/side.

Well not based on strength, and universe matches wouldn't count. It's just on win% Like Arthur could be ahead of Superman, because he happened to win more matches, not because he's stronger.

What do you mean? If you have to vote for the winning team doesn't that defeat the purpose?

On a regular voting poll like popularity, yes it defeats the purpose. But, on Factpile, you vote for the guy or team who has better abilities (Speed, strength, reaction times, etc) in a match. Doesn't matter if you like that one guy over another. In a death battle, it's a death battle, not voting poll to see who's better than another.

Don't forget better field-testing, Stars know how imperitive F.Ts actually are yet they tend to get ignored until the last minute!

Don't agree with your first suggestion for teh reason AOO said but teh second is something I have thought about before but people will just vote for their favourites. I guess if you put the poll at the bottom some would read what has been said or maybe after a certain number of comments have been made then the poll section will be open.
