HIFL GM Poll
« on: September 26, 2017, 03:19:18 PM »
This is something I've been meaning to bring up and just kept forgetting.

I want to start a HIFL Weekly GM's Poll (we'll start the first one after this next set of results are released)

How it works?

It's simple. You PM me your personal rankings (#1-20). I will then calculate the results and post them. 20 pts for a 1st place vote, 19 for 2nd, etc...

You don't have to participate every week if you don't want to or don't have time or forget.

In the poll, I will list the GM's that provided a ranking to me, but will not release your rankings.

Any questions?

What're we ranking, teams? Other GM's? Players? All of the above?

Thanks to those GMs that have PM'd me already. I'd like to have all rankings to me by Saturday night so I can post the rankings on Sunday, if possible.

Would love to get more participation for this.

I've had 7 GMs send me rankings. Would love to get to 10, if possible.

Remember, you are rankings the teams as they currently stand.

Don't the standings do that?

You could think a team is better than their record indicates, or vice versa.

The first GM's poll is posted.

Thanks to the 10 that participated.

Shame on those that didn't.

I will be keeping a spreadsheet for it where we can look at past weeks as the season progresses.  You can find the link to the poll here:

he was agreeing with why there was a ranking, but was adding his 2 cents came without him sending a ranking.

Not to turn this into the Zapruder film, but....

You could think a team is better than their record indicates, or vice versa.
But that comes from someone who hasn't submitted

He quoted my post.  Then said "But that..." ('that' meaning me and my quoted post, because otherwise why quote it?) "....comes from someone who hasn't submitted" (still meaning me...nowhere does he indicate he was talking about himself).


I mean, I believe Justin when he says what he meant.  But it is clearly not what he said.

STATE OF THE HIFL GM POLL

Beginning S10...

We will have 6 polls throughout the season.
- Preseason
- Quarter 1
- Quarter 2
- Quarter 3
- Quarter 4
- Final

This allows more fluctuation and time for you to send me your rankings.

STATE OF THE HIFL GM POLL

We will have 6 polls throughout the season.
- Preseason
- Quarter 1
- Quarter 2
- Quarter 3
- Quarter 4
- Final

This allows more fluctuation and time for you to send me your rankings.

The preseason is approaching quickly and I understand if you want to wait to see all team sheets before you send in your poll. I hope for 100% participation from the HIFL family as this should be something fun! Last season we only had about 33% participation... we can do so much better than that!

A few reminders:

- Please complete the poll objectively. If you want to list your team first and have a reasonable case in doing so, I understand. But if you 0-8, you should not be putting your team in the #1 slot, etc... I think you catch what I'm getting at. I don't mind if you want to do the poll under the persona of your GM character (ie: grade your rivals stricter, hold on to beefs, etc.) but do not put them in positions they are obviously not. In the end though, you can complete the poll as how you see fit, but I just ask that you don't try to ruin the poll with a ridiculous submission.   

- For the poll to count there must be all teams listed in a #1-#24 format. Through this first poll, if you mess up, I will reply with your error so you may fix it if you'd like. After the preseason poll though, I will not do this. 

- If you have any questions, you can post in here or PM me and I'd be happy to answer.

With that said...

You may now begin to submit your polls for the preseason edition!
