  1. Good

  2. Bad

Results are only viewable after voting.
  1. So we currently use Creativity (which I like), Entertaining (fair one IMO), and "used potential" - which NO ONE LIKES if I'm not mistaken. So I propose we change the third one toooooooo........

    Coherence
    noun
    1. T
    he act or state of cohering; cohesion.

    2. Logical interconnection; overall sense or understandability.

    3. Congruity; consistency.

    4. Physics, Optics. (of waves) the state of being coherent.

    (And my favorite and reason why I think we should use it........)

    5. Linguistics. The property of unity in a written text or a segment of spoken discourse that stems from the links among its underlying ideas and from the logical organization and development of its thematic content.

    If we get enough positive responses quick enough we'll use it at Uprising (I think).
     
  2. Seems to be liked well enough @Delik - should we use it for the Uprising voting? Will you remember the change? lol

  7. I didn't like Used Potential at first, but as I got used to it it became a good category to me. Coherence seems like a freebie category, and one that can be easily misinterpreted. Some will equate it to punctuation, others will equate it to how the promo(s) tie into the match. To me, I'd take both into account, but more often times than none not many people will have promos that are horribly askew, or are bad grammatically. If anything I'd replace entertainment with coherence, seeing as creativity and entertainment are basically one in the same. Promos that are entertaining are usually creative, there's not many people that can cut an extremely generic promo and have it be entertaining.
     
  8. Eh, I guess. But I disagree. Someone could rate something highly in creative because it was off the wall in their opinion. Out of the box if you will. But maybe they found it to not be entertaining at all, so entertaining could get a low score.

    Just as an example (sorry @Gav the Champ! ) - I could see someone maybe giving Gav a low rating on coherency, but then giving him a higher rating on creativity or entertaining. I hate that everyone feels their voting scores always need to be like 5 or 6 and up. You CAN give low scores in one category, but high scores in another people.
     
  9. To me, if promos are entertaining but at the same time horribly out of place, or doesn't tie into the match well they're going to be low in every category. Entertaining aspects have their place for sure, but just because it may funny doesn't make it a good all around promo.
     
  10. Personal preferences man. I enjoy promos that make me laugh or chuckle and give them higher scores.

    Just saying that what you think is a good all around promo might not be what the next person considers to be a good all around promo is all.
     
  11. And honestly - it's not like we count one category more than another. If you don't like a category (or any of them really) just try to give 3 scores that would average out to what you would rate the match on a 1-10 scale. Categories be damned.
     
  12. It all depends on the gimmick of the promoer imo. If the promos fit within your gimmick well, and ties into the match itself in a good way the better the promo is. For example, say two people have a pretty intense rivalry go into a match-- I don't expect the heel to come out and crack jokes if his/her persona is based around a serious tone.
     
  13. You can still crack jokes and be serious. I mean, as I was reading your comment I thought the guy in your sig is a perfect example of that. Seth Rollins dummy promo anyone? Ice bucket challenge spot in the back maybe?
     
  14. I'm not saying don't crack or joke here and there if your character is serious, but I don't think they should have a heavy presence if that's the case. It's all a double standard though because the scenario differs in every match.

  15. That is very true. The overlying theme of the match may lend itself more to comedy depending on the background of the match. Every match is different.
