And I should contemplate this change
After careful deliberation, the Games Staff has reached a decision:
Yes, that’s fine.
If I recall correctly the basis of the arguement against doing survivors was that there is little to no discussion in the individual bands discussion threads. While this is an issue when a survivor is occurring it needs to be looked at when one isn't occuring, many bands threads lie dormant with little to no discussion in general whilst a survivor thread actually has discussion taking place. Based on that saying we are doing too many survivors based on the individual threads having a lack of activity is actually counter-intuitive, what we should do is merge the survivor threads into the discussion or have the results posted there in order to generate discussion and keep the discussions portion of the thread out of survivor and have it simply be used to state what they are voting for with explanations and thoughts being placed in the individual threads.So we're just going to continue doing survivor after survivor despite the discussion we had a couple of months ago about there being too many of them?
As opposed to the very few people talking in the discussion thread? I see your point about the low pool, but I also feel like survivor discussions have a much higher chance of occurring since everyone is talking about the same set of songs at a time instead of just piping up into a conversation. Yes crowd-sourcing is a factor but the discussion threads do roughly the same thing with the lack of actual codified ranking. Plus it is always interesting to see what the communities thoughts on a discography is.The lack of actual discussion in Music Discussion was a factor, yes, but the main thing was that very few people participate in survivors and they're just a method to rank bands' discographies by crowdsourcing.
I, for one, haven't been interested in taking part in a survivor in a very long time. The only one I care about is the Iced Earth survivor, which takes ages (@Night Prowler ) All other survivors lately are simply not appealing to me. So no, I'm not tired of survivors, I'm just not into the ones being run.The lack of actual discussion in Music Discussion was a factor, yes, but the main thing was that very few people participate in survivors and they're just a method to rank bands' discographies by crowdsourcing.
