IMPORTANT NOTE: Post 2 of every voting thread will contain instructions as to who to send your votes to. If you send your votes to the wrong person, we can't guarantee that they will be counted. MOD: This is a strictly on-topic thread. Posts that don't focus on the centers listed in Post 2 will be deleted or moved at the discretion of the moderators. Before we begin, just a recap on how Round 2 will operate: Round 2 The top 8-10 ranked players from the aggregate list will be posted in a thread Players will be listed in alphabetical order to avoid creating bias Player merits and rankings will be open for discussion and debate for a period of at least five (5) days. Administrators may extend the discussion period if it remains active Final voting will occur for two (2) days, via PM. Everyone ranks their top 8 players. Top 4 players will be added to the list Final results will be posted and the process repeated for the next 4 places with remaining players until a list of 60 centers is obtained After Vote 5 (when we have a list of the top 20 centers), we may increase the number of players added per round to 5. Participants will be allowed to vote on whether to increase the number added per round to 5 or to stay at 4 per round If there are major breaks in the Round 2 voting totals, we may add more or less than the targeted 4 or 5 players in certain rounds The number of players available for discussion at once will increase from 8 as we move down the list, based on natural breaks in the aggregate list put together in Round 1 These might be tweaked to allow longer or shorter debating periods depending on how the process moves along. Additionally, there are a couple guidelines we'd ask that everyone agree to abide by: Please try to stay on-topic in the thread Please remember that this is a debate on opinions and there is no right or wrong. Please try to avoid words like "stupid" "dumb" "wrong" "sophistry" etc. when debating. Please treat other debaters with respect Please don't be a wallflower. All eligible voters are VERY HIGHLY encouraged to be active participants in the debate. Please maintain an open mind. The purpose of the debate is to convince others that your views are more valid. If nobody is willing to accept their opinions as flexible there really is no point in debating.
