Thank you based god
I've only told a few users before this, but I want everyone to know the following info. To coincide with the 2010 Awards, I'm going to start a tournament to determine the greatest Mario/DK/B-K/Sonic/Kirby/Anything Else Wiki-Related character of all-time! Why now, in September? Well, following my timeframe, it'll take anywhere from 70-262 days to conduct the tournament, depending on how many characters we include. All the details will be taken care of in meetings in #ralphchat. The first meeting is this Friday, the 18th, at 5:20 pm Eastern (22:20 UTC). Beginning on Wednesday the 23rd, most meetings after that will be held on Wednesdays at 7:30 pm Eastern (0:30 Thursday UTC). Ask me any questions. Remember, all users are invited to help!

When you say "tournament", do you mean you're going to set up a group of polls, then whoever gets the most votes moves on to the next round, or are you going to play Brawl or something?

That's what I was wondering

Sorry I wasn't very specific. Yes, I mean polls, and it'll be set up like a bracket, and you vote for the character you like more.

As for planning:
  • Most of the meetings will last about an hour.
  • In the first few meetings, we'll determine which characters will be in the tournament.
  • The rest will be determining their seeding, i.e.: who plays who. A lot of this will be done throughout the week on the forum.

I'm glad so many of you have taken interest in the tournament. See ya Friday!

I still think this is far too much effort for such a small outcome...

We took care of the first meeting.  Not many members attended.  Marioguy1 and SLNO pinged in the middle.  Kudos to SMB ( :mario: and  :luigi:) for staying for the whole meeting.  We set up the agenda and covered the Conker and Banjo series.

Here's a recap of the first meeting.

Here's a recap of the characters and those on the bubble.

Please reflect on the decisions made and say what you want changed.  Hope to see you at #ralphchat for the next meeting, September 23rd at 7:30 pm Eastern (Sep. 24th at 0:30 UTC).  The MW applet doesn't let you access #ralphchat for some reason, so use Darkmyst, Mibbit, or Userpedia.

Tucky, maybe we can discuss it in The 'Shroom, I'm not sure.

Everyone can help! Post your thoughts on who should be in from Conker and Banjo that isn't, and who shouldn't be in that currently is.

The four currently on the bubble are:
  • Jolly Roger
  • Gobi
  • Cheato
  • Roysten

me confused on how this works?
Well, I thought I made it pretty clear, but I'll try again:

I'm planning a tournament to find the best Mario/Sonic/Kirby/DK/Zelda/Banjo/Conker character. The tournament will be a 1-on-1 bracket, and users will vote for the character they prefer in polls. The meetings are to determine the characters that will be included in the tournament and to rank them, which will determine the matchups. Meetings are held on the darkmyst network at #ralphchat on Wednesdays at 7:30 pm Eastern (US) Time (Thursdays at 0:30 UTC). You can access the channel through mibbit.com, darkmyst.org, or here. I prefer the last one, which is through Userpedia.

I would say none of these characters, but if you insist, I think Jolly Roger would be the best choice. All Gobi does is get his water stolen and goes places, Cheato is a floating book with missing pages, and who is Roysten?

is this supposed to show the characters that youre choosing or to show the characters that you dont know if are in yet?

Yes, on the bubble are the maybes.  The others listed are in.

Roysen is Banjo's goldfish.  He doesn't do much.  Yay, we're doing a super-quote!

We now have an official home: It's on the wiki.

Ok, that makes me feel even stronger on not allowing those characters. Include Banjo, Kazooie, Grunty, and Mumbo Jumbo.

I don't usually double post, but we can make an exception.

For the second meeting:

We covered Zelda: 18 characters added, 2 more on the bubble.  It took way more time than expected, and I pinged towards the end and had to re-login.  Tucky was there for the bulk of it, Castle Toad came in the middle and stayed for a bit, MG1 stayed throughout (thanks!) and SMB missed most because of dinner, but his opinions were heard.

Here's a recap of the second meeting.

Here's a link to the characters and their current positions.

Here are all the polls and recaps.  This will be the main page for everything.

St00by, I disagree entirely.  It'll be fun!  It already is!

Next meeting: Wednesday 9/30, 7:30 pm Eastern (10/1, 0:30 UTC).
