Quote from: AlexTheMartian on November 18, 2010, 06:48:22 pmmaybe there should be something more of an Academy Awards rather than a People's Choice Awards?(hint to whoever don't understand my point: Academy Awards voted by members of the Academy, while the People's Choice Awards is voted by the general public)God help us if this turns into the Kids Choice Arards
Quote from: Seiya on November 18, 2010, 08:14:31 pmBut ultimately anything that would truly be called "top build" or "top community" or "top event" is going to have ridiculous amounts of time behind it. There is nothing quick and easy in AW, all great achievements are backed by great amounts of effort. Thus, a great amount of effort should be put into what deserves to be considered the best.
Quote from: GSK on November 18, 2010, 07:21:14 pmThere was something similar to the Academy Awards: Support AW Awards.I'm kinda sad maki stopped doing those. They were infinitely better than the Cys and gave awards to those who sincerely deserved them.
Quote from: SW Chris on November 18, 2010, 11:23:53 pmI already created a proposal for an academy-based system back in 2005. Parts of it were used in the Support AW Awards. A few highlights:1. Academy members chosen are on a per-category basis. Members will have some familiarity with the thing they are judging. People can be chosen for multiple categories.2. Nominations are submitted by citizens. This is similar to what the CY Awards nominations process is.3. Prizes!http://www.scribd.com/doc/43230930/AW-Academy-Awards-ProposalI scanned through it and most of it is relevant to our current population size, imho, although the judging forms may have some balancing issues that need worked out and the organizing and committee portion may need to be streamlined. Anybody has my permission to take this idea and run with it.
Quote from: Ferruruccruio on November 19, 2010, 03:10:07 amI vaguely thought of such an idea, though I see a few problems.Some categories have such few experts as it is, so I could see the judges for, say, bots, being a good percentage of the total bot programmers.Also, obviously, there's the issue of arguing over credibility. "Who says that's the expert on building??". I mean, as it's been pointed out before, the current voting system is as fair as such a system can be. However, there still exist people who blindly claim it was rigged!
Quote from: AlexTheMartian on November 19, 2010, 05:53:32 amMaybe voting should be more on multi-category point system. What I mean is similar to how building contests are judged in the recent years. There is aesthetics, complexity, originality, detail, etc. Yes those are mainly building and object related descriptions, but similar thing can be brought up for bots, worlds, towns, etc.
