    Default Playoof Format Poll

    This poll combines some of the various steps that shaw's old pollapalooza had last time. Please vote - this will determine if we keep talking about playoof changes or not.

    The 64 dollar questions are these... very simple:

    - Do you prefer if 6 teams or 8 teams per league make the playoofs?
    - Do you want the top finishers in each division or do you want to discuss alternatives?

    This yields four things you can vote for:

    1. 8 Teams per League, top 4 from each division
    2. 8 Teams per League, not necessarily top 4 from each division
    3. 6 Teams per League, top 3 from each division
    4. 6 Teams per League, not necessarily top 3 from each division

    If you want a different number of teams to make it than 6 or 8, tough shit for now. Just state your preference between 6 and 8 as if those are the only two options in the universe for all eternity. kthx bai

    The 4-team voters are 1 vote away from being able to block a constitutional amendment.


    Once that is established, can we get a new poll regarding having a bye vs keeping the status quo?
    We don't necessarily have to hash out if there will be 1 or 2 byes per division yet, but just if the league would want that type of change.

    It would be interesting, given that we'll probably keep 4 teams per division, to see what the argument against having a bye or two would be.

    6 votes needed. Morg or someone, can those be called out so they vote? I'm very curious about the results to this point.

    The problem with the options available is that I am not so bothered about the number of teams, but I do care about how the teams are selected.

    My preferences in order:
    8 Teams, Top 4 qual
    6 Teams, Top 3 qual

    BIG GAP

    8 Teams, no particular division
    6 Teams, no particular division

    I think that we should decide how many teams we want in the playoffs first, then figure out how the teams are going to qualify rather than putting all of the options out there in one vote.

    Or could we vote on all combinations:

    1. 8 teams, top 4 in each division, no bye
    2. 8 teams, top 4 in each division, with bye
    3. 8 teams, not necessarily top 4, no bye
    4. 8 teams, not necessarily top 4, bye
    5. and 6. - 6 teams, all in division vs not


    If there's no clear cut majority, we could eliminate the two lowest vote getters, and revote, and repeat until we finally get down to the final 2 (if necessary), and come up with a majority decision. This way there's a good chance you could vote for your 2nd choice in the revote, if you're first choice gets shat upon.

    This would require people participating, which could make it a slow process.

    Well, you can post whatever polls you like - I just don't care enough about the playoof format to whip votes for it. But if you want to go ahead and run playoof pollapalooza, have at it. *shurg*

    The only polls that really have to be posted by BoG are official amendment votes.

    Can we finish this one out? It looks like this is very close. 15 people in favor of change, 11 people opposed to it, and 6 people who clearly don't give a shit (curious to know who those are). I think this might warrant a little more discussion, as nothing is unanimous.

    Yeah, I am curious to know who the assholes are too. I wish it didn't require making votes public to show who voted and who didn't.

    Actually, Rope, 17 are in favor or at least ok with some kind of change, and 15 in favor of a fairly drastic change. Out of 26 votes, even my hazy brain can figure that out to be a pretty high percentage.

    When I get back in town, I'll see if I can't put a little more time into helping Morg out with the polls. I do think some kind of re-setting series of elimination polls is probably needed to narrow it down.

    Also, is there any reason these votes can't be public (so we can round up the non-voters)? I doubt anybody here is shy about what way they're voting on something like this. Shit, it's not like we're voting for the "which FOBL'er you'd be most likely to bring home to your parents" award.

    Whoever posts the poll can make it public. Admins can see hidden poll results.

    Once the new owners of QNS and UTA are officially introduced, I'll go ahead with the barrage of playoff polls.

    Not stumping for allies. Just looking to improve the playoff structure, if that's what the majority of the league wants.

    No memo has been circulated, but Allo has been away for at least a year now. I pinged him with no response. Unless he responds by the end of the season, we have somebody ready to take them.

    You mean a season, not a calendar year, right (his PM was from mid-Jan)?
