Made this since we seem to be having trouble with dates. Note I am not an official host so these aren't the actual dates or anything, just estimations aligning with (what I think is) the common consensus

>May - Emperor of the /an/imals
>June - Heroes and Villains
>July - /cov/
>August - /trash/ tourney
>September - December is normal programming as usual but with /aco/ inserted somewhere between
2024

I wouldn't really call anything up to September common consensus. It's really up to hosts, and their word/schedule's not clear at the moment. Coayynon's kind of waiting for Samaritanon's hero/villain schedule, and Balls just hasn't been around since co-op (or at least said anything). Balls did express interest in /an/ at some point, and Coayynon in /trash/ and /cov/.

There should be at least a fourth host around that isn't Cumnuts or Temp. If Coayynon and Samaritanon managed to host Tag-Team and Co-op effectively without having so much knowledge about the polls I really wonder if hosting is actually less complicated than it's made to be. Of course, we're also talking about a small board like /tnt/ though.

thanks for the thread, was gonna rebump the /an/ one but I'll post it here
so what I'm currently thinking is Friday 12th May 7pm est or the next two fridays after that (mostly because I'm busy and the bulk of the work will go over the weekend where I have time so if one week I can't do it we've 2 more chances)

same as always, submit the animal and a picture, 12 votes needed to get in (thought this because of the zodiac having 12 animals)
can be any fauna or flora, currently alive or extinct, probably wanna stay to just the base animal (like so submitting dog would cover all dogs so we don't have to submit every good boy breed in)

There's no way we'll be able to do 4 tourneys back to back but I MIGHT have a good idea for it.
>Heroes and Villains are combined into one tourney
>Gimmick is that, alongside the normal nomination procedures, you have to list if your character is a villain or hero
>Heroes and Villains are separated into different voting sections
>instead of top 128 it's the respective top 64s for the two teams
>series limit is bumped down to two but not universally, just for the individual brackets (meaning if you play cards right then you can have 4 characters from a single series make it)

If you're saying one side of the bracket for heroes and one for villains, that's dumb and defeats the purpose other than the finale will be a hero vs. a villain. Heroes and Villains should be seperate events.

I mean like say Knuckles gets voted into first place for the Heroes side of the poll, he'd be going up against Pot of Greed from Yu-Gi-Oh! who got 1st place in the Villains side of the poll. Then in the next round whoever won that goes up against the victor of the 64 hero seed / 64 villain seed match

This might overwork the hosts and I don't know if there's time for this, but maybe we try doing two tournaments a month. It's now almost impossible to do one tournament a month before the main events start even if we just did the heroes and villains tournaments. Since we are very /v/ heavy right now, we should focus on the /v/ tournaments first. In June, maybe heroes in the first half and /v/illains in the second half then the same for /co/ in July and /cov/ and /trash/ in August if that's possible with the hosts' schedules.

Dude who submitted it, here to clarify that it's not just /cov/ 2.0
It's the idea of combining /co/ heroes and /v/ heroes (and vice versa for villains) to make more space & save the hosts from overworking. It'd also give more OC material for the actual /cov/ tournament
It's kind of pointless now since we seem to be going with all 4 being separate but I didn't' have an idea for anything else to write so eh it was worth a shot

>politicians of /pol/

Considering this is /pol/, this sounds like a terrible idea.

>four board showdown between /co/, /v/, /a/ and /tv/

Sounds fun and original but I don't know, the tournament could drag on even longer than the hero/villain tournaments unless we find something to limit the numbers of each matches. Speaking of with, how many matches could this have?

>/tv/ tournament

Sounds good.

>tournaments for words, series, vehicles and periodic elements

Whoever came up with this is just shitting out anything from their autistic brains and couldn't make a decent tournament.

>/v/ Heroes and /co/ Heroes power hour combination

So just like the anon who came up with it said, it's a crossover 1-on-1 tournament with both /co/ and /v/ characters. Sounds like a great idea and I can see the potential OCs being made here. So yeah, sounds like a fun idea.

>robots

I suggested it while also saying that the number of contestants per team could be 64 instead of 128, having in total 256 characters. The tournament would end when one team is left standing, not necessarily one character, making it potentially shorter. However, each round the bracket is randomized so that characters fight off against characters from other teams, only fighting others from their team if they outnumber the others.

Okay, here's the summary (correct me if I'm wrong):

>August - Heroes/Villains /co/
>September - Mr/Ms /co/ and /aco/
>October - /cov/ and king/queen /v/
>November - Tag-Team
>December - Co-op

Here are my biggest guess for some future tournaments (keep in mind, these are just suggestions):

>January - Trio of /co/ (and maybe a Trio of /v/ if successful)
>February - /tv/ tournament
>March - /a/ tournament of sorts
>April - Four board showdown between /co/, /v/, /a/ and /tv/
>May - Lord/Lady /lit/ and DTVA Tourney

IIRC Coayy was interested in /cov/ so even if I get burnt out it's likely happening, we just don't know when exactly. I was also under the impression that this year's Tag-Team was going to be the Trio tourney. And I don't wanna plan ahead of that so far.

I say we should keep Tag-Team for the time being. Trio of /co/ should be treated like an experiment of sort and if successful, we could allow the tournament to take over Tag-Team (and maybe Co-op as well).

Okay, so no more Heroes and Villains after this tourney right? I feel it caused a ton of confusion for the main boards for some reason, thinking we're trying to force more tourneys.

So I had a few ideas for what we could do in 2024. I've been reading that tourneys for more boards have been requested more, but obviously we don't wanna jump right in. Also, I feel that we should give people a breather, especially considering tackling FOUR tourneys in rapidfire wasn't the best idea. So I propose:

>January = /cov/
>February = /trash/
>June = /a/
>July = /tv/

Another thing I'd like to propose is that the /a/ and /tv/ tourneys represent all instead of one for girls, one for dudes. Not just to prevent burnout, but also because if they end up on /tnt/ instead of their actual boards, we could still have a lot more discussion going on. The H&V tourneys could be fun, but they got way less vocal as they progressed, and I feel that separation had to do with that alongside /tnt/'s obscurity.

Thing is tag is meant to happen December and was only done January this year cause Temp's scheduling issues but it went down as "tag team 2022". So if its going January either we skip a year or just make it a tradition to have it a month after its intended year. Or just do away with the year tagging cause it was never a necessary formality anyways. Just call it tag team 5th edition or something.

Shown by even just Heroes and Villains of /v/, having two tournaments in the same month can really burn people out. A duos tournament like tag team requires double the effort so doing it a month after King instead of trying to squeeze it at the same time or after it seems fair. How we would deal with the title we could leave up to the host.

This was basically the plan, having /aco/ and /cov/ in the proper gap in between (friday after the end, hopefully ending sunday before the next main one).
Some stuff I wanted to do earlier in the year (/trash/, /cov/, and maybe something else) but the wait for heroes/villains followed by its eventual scheduling moved it.
I like the a lot of the proposed ideas, like /tv/, /lit/, t/trash/ (still) and an /a/ tourney. Maybe try these out in the spring/early summer. Possibly get a new host to try some.
As for tag team and co-op I assume these'll go down in the winter months again. Tag team traditionally fell on December but it's looking more practical to make it a January thing. There's no fixed places as to whose hosting these but I'm willing to try them again, don't know about the others. And if tag would still be referred to by year I'm not sure - would like maybe Ball's are Samaritanon's input there if they wanna work on it.

Heroes and Villains have been fun, but they've been the subject of fatigue, and they've not been quite vocal.

I have a suggestion on how to have only two tourneys instead of four. There are two ways this could be done:

First way is to have what I call Good /v/s Evil for /v/, and /co/od vs. Evil for /co/. How this works is that the top 64 heroes and top 64 villains each get their own poll. An additional true final round is added so the winning hero and winning villain duke it out.

The second way is to have Heroes and Villains from all of entertainment allowed in their respective tournaments. Heroes from all over /a/, /co/, /tv/ and /v/, and Villains from all over as well.

Either way would not only make them much more vocal, but would also decrease burnout ten-fold.

Both sound like bad ideas. Mixing boards will create issues with deciding outcomes. Someone already gave a good example with Spongebob that what if most of the /co/ characters get wiped out and people vote for Spongebob just because he's the last one left. Mixing the Heroes and Villains tournaments just does what some people feared about these becoming smaller versions of the main events, just both genders.

Yes, if at all possible, I would like to make it so that the next Heroes and Villains, whenever they happen, take up less time and are maybe contained to 2 tournaments instead of 4. The 64 vs 64 bracket idea is interesting, though a lot of picks would be left out in that case.

Okay, I have the solution for Tag-Team 2023 and some planning with /cov/ 2023.

For Tag-Team, we should host it on Dec 29 since it's closer to January and it's in the middle of winter break so we won't have to deal silent picks and such. The tournament will still be called 2023 because it's only a few days before 2024 arrives.

As for /cov/, I personally don't really want it to delayed for three reasons. One, alot of us have our teams set-up right now and all of that planning would be wasted once it gets delayed. Two, the main tournaments can be incredibly stressful for most of us and frankly, we really deserve a much more calmer tournament to get the stress out of our systems. Third and most importantly, starting a 2023 tournament next year wouldn't make any sense (Tag-Team was understandable because of the original host's fuck-ups). However if there's really a strong need for a delay, late November or January would be the closet months to start instead.

I don't see how that would do anything, I've got my teams ready whenever the tourney arrives.
>Two, the main tournaments can be incredibly stressful for most of us and frankly, we really deserve a much more calmer tournament to get the stress out of our systems
This is exactly why I think it being between two main tournaments is a BAD idea, not only are they stressful, but they might also take attention away from the tournament (like the ending of Villains of /co/). The main tourneys are bigger, so people may prefer to relax (i.e. not being in a tournament) or get ready and make something for Queen /v/, not to mention /cov/ being teams of two mean more effort.
>Third and most importantly, starting a 2023 tournament next year wouldn't make any sense
It... simply would be called /cov/ 2024? The first one doesn't exist, this will be the first actual one, meaning date doesn't matter.

I think it should be pushed back to be either before or after Co-op, where people would have calmed down from the main tournaments and be ready to support their teams fully. It may be a smaller tournament, but two characters is still more work for people.

There already is a /cov/ tournament back in 2022, so this isn't the first one.

>I think it should be pushed back to be either before or after Co-op

So January then? Co-op starts somewhere in February and hosting /cov/ sometime in January would be a good idea since it's the start of the new year and there's a big open space which is why I choose it along with November.

If Tag-Team is in January (no, starting it the last day of December doesn't make it in December), then either have /cov/ or Co-op in February and the other in March. People need breaks, they should be spaced out enough.

January still has a huge open space to host at least one tournament; Tag-team would end in Jan 7 if the plan gets accepted so it's possible to host /cov/ much later in the month (as in two weeks after TT ends) while Co-op could be hosted more later within February.

We shouldn't host a recurring tournament in March because we have to give more newer ones like /tv/ or /lit/ a try, so I don't think it's a good idea to put either one for March; that would sound much more overwhelming than it is.

Okay, this sounds perfect.

Frankly, I think it would make sense to host /cov/ between Tag-Team and Co-op since the reason /cov/ was to be hosted between the main tournaments of /co/ and /v/ because it's a crossover between the two. However, we always host tournaments on Fridays so 26th of January is the perfect date and 23th of February would be the start of Co-op.

One anon says we should start the new tournaments by March and all the way to June which by this point, it's a fair point because we're getting more and more ideas recently so we need to extend the months.

The host's idea for placing Tag-Team near January was because of last year's Tag-Team was set in the same month (due to the original host messing it up) but at the same time, we don't want to place it much on January since it was originally on December.

Plus, King ends in Dec 10th so hosting Tag-Team too early after that would be too much for anons.

I'm starting to agree with distributing the main tournaments year-round rather than shoving them all in September to December. Not only to alleviate the wait of an entire year for tournaments, but also if we ever get something as major as /a/ and/or /tv/ tournaments, that's 6-8 tournament months in a row if they're just one after the other. People are burned out from 4 consecutive tournaments already.

We shouldn't separate it further, rather we should shorten it, at least for major tourneys. My suggestion is to close off at exactly 512 fighters successfully nominated, then go to qualifiers in the morning. This makes creating the poll faster, it shortens the tourneys by a day, and it helps people make absolute sure of who should get in so we don't end up with later threads where we get a bunch of "underdog slides" where people vote for literal whos as opposed to ACTUAL underdogs.

So, I've been thinking of potentially hosting some smaller tournaments on /tnt/, some that aren't board specific, instead being based on characters. Like the four Inscryption scrybes (a Tournament of the Dead, a Tournament of Beasts, a Tournament of Technology and a Tournament of Magicks), for example, all these having fictional characters from any source and not just video games.
Not in a short timespan, of course, thinking of doing something like this if there's free space between other tourneys, these being potentially one-offs.

Thoughts?

Technology and Magicks are just the names of the scrybes, P03 is the scrybe of Technology and Magnificus is the scrybe of Magicks. While I suppose these names would fit those boards, they aren't meant to be those boards.
The idea for all four of these would be characters that fit the scrybes' themes. For example, Grimora's Tournament of the Dead would be characters that are undead or have come back to life canonically. This is from any source or board; /v/, /co/, /tv/, /a/ and others; at first I was thinking of only having fictional character, but I think allowing real life things too would be neat.

An anon in the /v/ threads laid out a pretty good set of rules that I'll paste here
>Same rules as here for nominations, qualifiers, and 128 entrants and seeds. Loser's bracket present but solely for an extra lesser title below the E8 and Winner, and not barred from next year. If this is set out firmly from the start it shouldn't cause any friction. Same for Bottom 128. It's all nice to think of 256 entrants to have more qualify, but I think it's just unwieldy at that point.
>Franchise limit of 3 or 4, including all adaptations of the same property, but a limit of 5 for a short list of either very wide franchises with a lot of films/shows, or franchises that have had a lot of adaptations. e.g., Star Wars, Batman, Marvel, Star Trek, Marvel, etc. This would be a short list but necessary.
>Video game adaptations a-ok obviously, but needs to be clear you are nominating the character from the film or TV adaptation and not the video game. Same with other adaptations, e.g. no nominations from ASOIAF, only GoT/HotD (sorry, Darkstar).
>A ban on nominating actors or actresses, only characters played by them in a film or show. No limit on number of characters played by an actor who can qualify, for fairness. Nominate 10 Ryan Gosling characters if you wish. An exception only for when an actor or actress may have played a fictionalized version of themselves in something (which is rare anyway so probably won't come up).
>A ban on nominating characters from cartoons and anime, we have /co/ and /a/ already. However, a short whitelist of certain cartoons that are discussed on /tv/ regularly, mostly adult orientated ones, like the Simpsons, Futurama, etc.
>Same rules as here for inanimate objects (I'm afraid no Chili and Seabass) or abstract memes like Green Oval. Animals are fine I think, they tend to be characters anyway.
Also we should probably make it male only, a female /tv/ tournament just sounds not only interesting but will attract a lot of weirdness

I believe the /tv/ tournaments should be split in a king/star/whatever of /film/ and /television/ instead of a "queen" and "king" of /tv/, mostly because

A random thought went into my head and I wanted to express in this thread specifically.

We know when you vote your picks and at the end of polls there is a code which you need to write/copy+paste or it'll refresh into a new one. I am wondering, can google forums allow to toggle between multiple questions to enter the polls? Like, for each time you refresh the page a new question is made but this is automated and not random like the passwords.
Adding like 10-20 questions that toggle between each other would make any riggers day a pain in the ass to ever consider rigging. And it would filter any outsider from ever knowing the password.

Some clarifications on this year's scheduling.

/cov/ will begin in March, on the 22nd, at the usual time, so a little less than a month from now. Should be enough time to mitigate some of the burnout people have been complaining about during Co-Op. Coayy and I might be getting help from a new host for this. This would also put the NSA pastebin deadline on the 10th of April. Speaking of April...

We would like to finally try the /trash/ tournament this year, and April seems like a good time, because April Fools and all that. The problem is, Coayy and me still disagree on how to handle it. The thing we both agree on is that anything should be allowed to participate and that nominations should be first come-first served. Beyond that, Coayy wants a standard single-elimination bracket of 128 with all the normal rules. I want an experimental off-the-wall tourney where the winner of each match is decided by dubs or gets in the thread. I'll go more in-depth about our differences in the /trash/ tourney thread later and make a strawpoll for anons to vote. This tourney will only happen if we reach a conclusion one way or another.

/an/lympics will probably happen in May, at least the way we envisioned it. As far as I understand, Bill Clinton anon >>105896 wants to take it over. Since he has experience running Barred and whatnot, we'd gladly pass it on to him. But it would be nice to know if you're okay with running it in May.

I'm not gonna do another Heroes and Villains of /co/ and /v/ this year. Maybe next year, in some sort of condensed "Good vs. Evil" format. However, Heroes and Villains of /a/ may happen at some point in Summer, though that's probably up to Coayy to decide. I might help with it, and potentially another new host might be involved.

Beyond that is the main tourney season and uncharted territory.

I'm down for some more out there ideas for /trash/ specifically, though at the same time I'd at minimum still want proper voting to take place.

/lit/ has the best writefags on the site in general so campaigning and writefagging would be ultra-fun. Although, I respect that you want to see Dr. Livesey compete and do well outside of his cartoon adaptation, it is highly unlikely that he’ll make it far. Not to say that he’s a jobber, but the competition is fucking stacked to high hell with world renowned literature characters. Moby Dick, Judge Holden, Sherlock Holmes, Dante, Any character from shakespere, etc. are very strong contenders.
