...This could be a really great thread. Once a month sounds about right, given the huge numbers of individuals we will need to induct from scratch. Will you be counting the votes, Big S? I was thinking --- it could really be all over the shop, because many great fighters may wind up equal on one, two, or three votes, just because there are just so many individuals to choose from. What about a Ballot System, where you or a group of people decide on a short-list (say, 30 for Fighters, 15 for Trainers, 10 for Peripheries, as an example) & everyone is limited to choosing from those? You could do it in eras (say, "70's Week, 90's Week, 30's Week," etc, so it could be randomised in terms of fighters from different eras. Just thinking out loud here, BTW.) Here's hoping it turns out great!
I think the best way to do a ballot, is to use a 10 points through to 1 point so you get to name ten fighters and that way some names will pick up to a hundred votes from say 15 voters and you can prune that down to whatever number you need for the first Months induction.............. it should only need two weeks for our first agreed names to appear, just a little bit of co-operation needed..... I really think this is something we can all enjoy.
