I'd be down to be the poller there so we can get some fun data to figure out the MOTM of the community. If anyone would be interested, let me know here or via PM. Might set it up anyways for January once month is over just to gauge interest.

The matches to make the poll would be the ones with two nominations, also.
That's the way it used to be done, and I'd totally be down with that, I just don't know how to actually set up the polls and ensure people vote and such.

I remember how we used to do it with the head to head voting, it would be a little different from that. As for ensuring people vote, no way to make sure of that, but I'd expect people to be interested. I'll run a trial at the end of the month.

Sounds good to me, brother brother. If we get a true consensus that's the order of matches I'll use in the article each month.

Also nominating: Meiko Satomura vs Ayako Hamada, 1/6 Sendai Girls

The ELO system we used to use took a lot of time to set up so I'm not sure that's worth the trouble. A poll on the forum could be a nice experiment as I agree having a community aspect of this project is always cool.

This may seem too extra but what if it was divided by region? Just because I can see a lot of bias against things that aren't seen by a majority. Like I'm thinking Hall of Fame ballot style.

Seconded, or I guess thirded at this point! This was so much fun.

I think my favorite from the DDT tournament was Bailey vs Sakaguchi, with Sasaki vs Ishikawa a very close second.

Hall of Fame ballot style is very interesting, and something I'd be willing to do down the line, if people participate. For now, I think it'd be hard to implement. I think about categories like Australia, who may only have one match. And, if we're talking a true match of the month, it usually is a match that is seen by the majority of fans, and is beloved as such. As of now, the basic idea is that I will take every match mentioned in this thread, and create a Google Form with the matches, with write-ins also available. It would be top 3, with 1st getting 3 points, 2nd 2, 3rd 1. I would have to manually go through and make sure no one votes for the same match for all three places, which wouldn't be too difficult. The goal is to try and get statistics on what the community was a fan of that month, and maybe give matches exposure to some that would have normally passed over. If anyone has any ideas, PM me or DM me @packerman120 on Twitter.



Anyways, back to the thread.

I second:

Daisuke Sasaki vs. Shuji Ishikawa
ZSJ vs. WALTER
