With...NEW VOTING SYSTEMS!
So, what are the four big changes?
1.Candidates will at least have qualities or traits that make them suited for their roles.
Remember how the past few years, we had candidates who had no qualifications whatsoever take up precious nomination slots? (I'm looking at you, Tokisaki Kurumi)? Yea, scratch that. Every candidate now, as mentioned in the title will possess either experience in their roles, qualities or traits that make them suitable for their roles.
Now, why is this so? Well, to you, picking troll picks or bad picks overall may seem like fun, in the sense that the Seitokai will be full of chaos and content. But the truth is, none of us writers is professional or even good enough to make use of such a daring pick to its full effectiveness.
But the truth is, a troll pick is a double bind to everyone. It will cause the following to happen.
1) Writers get no motivation to write because they can't formulate a good enough story using the limited tools they have since Yoshino is basically useless and overall, pointless since she's just a stand holder in her role, having no direction whatsoever
2) This means less content to expect, in which you, the readers will be disappointed because you want to read up on all the antics that the five-man team get up to when they perform the tasks and events assigned to them by the Magistrate.
And so, we will have less chaos and more order within the Seitokai. Will it be more boring? Who knows. Maybe with an actual Seitokai, the writers could get more CDs and CBs out, making it a lot more interesting than WAR WAR WAR.
2. Almost all candidates are from the mid-low tier of nominated females and males or female and males that barely didn't get in.
Another issue that we faced was that majority of the candidates were the girls and guys you would normally see everywhere- basically, the higher-tiered girls (e.g. )
This meant that the lower-tiered candidates had not only any chance to compete against them popularity-wise, they were outclassed even in the forum as well, which is somewhat of a shame considering the wide variety of personalities and personal views the lower tiers have to offer.
So, this year, we'll extend the invitation of the Seitokai only to the lower-tiered characters, to even things out a bit. Personally, I believe that this helps give the higher-tiered girls that sense of an idol actually; someone that the lower-tiered girls see as a role model; someone to work towards to.
To make things even better, we've also extended it to candidates who barely missed out on entering the main tournament as well, giving them some exposure to our members who may not know these characters well and who knows? Maybe they will be part of your favourites at the end of the year.
3. All selected candidates in their respective roles will take up their roles for a full year
I believe this is self-explanatory.
4. The voting system will follow an IRV style of voting.
This might get complicated so hear me out.
IRV stands for Instant Runoff voting and how we are implementing it is through ranking the 8 characters with numbers 1-8, with 1 being your most preferred and 8 being the least. To do so, ask people to vote using 8 number string like the following:
Let's take a look at how that works, shall we?
Let's say the following candidates are as of follows
That is it. Since Ruiko is 3rd in that sequence, only one number is needed. No "0"s required or other characters.
Just four numbers, with the left side having the numbers for your more preferred characters.
All 8 numbers are mentioned here.
Alternatively, you can also do the following (but risk getting mauled by the One)
Now, without further ado, let me introduce our eight lovely candidates for our first role- the President!
Description: The office of President is responsible for organising and presiding over each meeting, directing all operations of the student council. Presidents also take the longest naps due to the amount of work they handle.
Senri Akane (Rewrite)
Sakagami Tomoyo (Clannad) (MGS)*
Roy Mustang (Fullmetal Alchemist)
Fine (Shuumatsu no Izetta)
Ainz Ooal Gown (Overlord)
Kumagawa Misogi (Medaka Box)
Takamachi Nanoha (Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha)
*Candidates with the MGS tag are part of the Magistrate
Also, take note that you may correct your number-strings within the 48 hours but please correct the original post and not post a new one in order to avoid confusion from occuring.
This number-string nomination shall last for forty-eight (48) hour(s).
