PostSubject: Most Overrated Of All Time! -NOMINATIONS-   Fri Mar 27, 2009 9:08 pm

Many thanks to furiostatic, for coming up with this idea over in 'World's Worst Band'.

furiostatic wrote:

-i make a move to change it to the most OVERRATED band.

the reason is two-fold: often, the greater variation comes from when people are asked about their opinion of the perceived greatness of a band; instead of us naming all the bands that EVERYONE hates. (Ex. I think Dark Side of the Moon is pedestrian at best, but many would defend it) The result? Awesome controversy and conversation.....even after the third time around.

It really is a better topic, and especially if we expand on it...

Let's not just include bands, but also books, movies, art, whatever.
If you think it gets too much credit, nominate it here!

Other than that, the same rules apply...

SimianAngel wrote:
STEP ONE: Register a name here on the forum. Yes, I am hosting this tournament in order to drum up a little more activity on the forum in order to draw in a few more participants in August Primate. But whether you choose to write here or not, you'll need a name to vote in the tournament.

STEP TWO: Reply to this topic with the names of as many TERRIBLE bands OVERRATED ENDEAVORS as you can think of. You can name just a few, or you can name several hundred. More is More.
You can reply again and again if you think of more things later on. I'm going to let the nominations carry on for awhile, so that we get a good sampling of the very worst stuff out there.
This is all subjective, so just name anything you think is overhyped. You don't need to defend your choice, or a choice that someone else made. The votes are what is going to count, in later stages, not your arguments here.
If you see someone has already named something that you wanted to name, NAME IT ANYWAY. This is important, because this is how I will rank stuff in the brackets, and also how I will eliminate stuff from the list if we have more than necessary.
For example, If Coldplay received the most votes at 20 nominations, and Citizen Kane received the second most at 17, Coldplay would be seeded first, and Citizen Kane second. All this data will be made available at the end of Nomination.
Also, say we nominate 132 things. We'll only need 128, so that means 4 things will need to be cut. I will cut the 4 things with the lowest amount of nominations. In the event of a tie (say 9 things all have the lowest amount of nominations), I will eliminate based on personal preference because I say so.

OMG OVERRATED?

The implication here is that you've sat down and watched Grey's Anatomy.

On the contrary, it's creative oppression. I have to filter anyway, part of the free forum Terms Of Service, but it also serves me well.
I am of the opinion that so-called 'freedom' just makes people complacent and lazy. When they have to strive to circumvent something (like rules or laws) to get what they want, that's when you really see some effort and creativity.

If no one sets limits, what is there to push against?
