The All Versus Forum

Since Raz has shown his face here recently, I feel like I should get the ball rolling and make a petition thread for an All Versus Forum. I support this idea, as do many other members. It seems to work on other numerous websites, and I feel that this could be a fun place to pit matches.

What is an All Versus Forum? It's a place where you can pit comic book characters, movie characters, video game characters, novel/book characters, television characters, and anime characters all together in a single bout, without restriction for genre specific forums.

If created, I volunteer to mod this All Versus Forum, and will gladly accept any help offered to help mod the place.

Raz, it's your call, Meister!

Everyone cite reasons why you want this place made!

You're supposed to cite reasons why, Zack!

This really needs to happen. Too many sub-forums are getting bogged down, stagnating and repetitive. The Anime vesus is composed of just the Big 3 Shonen stuff, the Games versus is Link, Kain etc, the Star Wars versus is dying and the movie versus is just lame and has massive flame wars every other day.

This could really breath some life back into the forum as well as draw all the members into one place, have some really kickass debates and expand the site. I strongly urge everyone to vote for this.

There should be an All Versus Forum because I get the feeling that there's hardly any more matches people can come up with in the genre specific forums.

the biggest reason would be because there is a demand for it and it would also broaden our pool of characters. I personally vote yes because it would open up the possibility for more interesting threads 'cause we would be able to use tv show characters. Characters from television shows have a ton more to draw from (feat-wise) than movie characters due to having multiple seasons/episodes.

The mixed genre threads in the CvF were (in large) successfull and really only stumbled and halted because we needed everyone to agree on matches to get a thread started.

There are plenty more matches you could come up with. They just won't get much traffic compared to more popular matches.

That said, I have always wanted to see Ender Wiggin beat Lelouch in a fight. So if that means it can happen, I'd like it.

Maybe this isn't as good as I originally thought.

If this happens, I am going to need a co-mod, definitely. If none of the existing mods want to help, I'll campaign for one to be hired by Raz.

Overwhelming positive feedback so far. A lot of the reasons previous mentioned can sum up most users desires for an amalgam versus forum.

While I'm for it, I feel there is a need for someone to play devil's advocate here. In something as all encompassing as an amalgam versus forum, there's very likely to be a number of issues between users as the various formats are compared and contrasted. This could lead to many volatile flame wars.

re posting this here: Yeah it could be good as long as it isn't done like MVC did it( as in everything is DBZ Vs Comics or Shonen vs Comics Such, that's my biggest worry but then again that's on the assumption that's all the poster knows).

But since this site does have careful moderation I say go for it.

Not to mention this Forum does get made, it will get a lot of traffic. Just cause it's new and such.

I haven't actually voted yet. I'm trying to think of the downsides.

On the one hand, many people will make threads that could not have been made before. It would open up flood gates for creativity, at least for a short time.

On the other hand, flaming and trolls would most certainly increase there. To an annoying level. And if it gets too bad, a lot of people will just go to different forums.

A large part of this site's prosperity (not trying to insult any other part of the site), is it's versus forums. The most visited forums on here is the comic book versus forums and movie versus forums. Individuals love pitting characters from their favorite franchises together. However, the strict rule of inter-medium fights somewhat impedes this fun. It limits our escapism to one medium, even though most of us undoubtedly have multiple mediums in which we find our entertainment.

Well, I would say that the genre specific matches are too limited, and there are only so many characters people will actually use in a versus thread. I notice that quite a few people just champion one or two characters and have passing interest in the rest, so things can get stagnant and slow if not a lot of people are involved. With an all versus, more combinations are possible and I guess more posters can meet each other (this point can be good or bad). But yeah, more options being available will likely revive a lot of interest in characters that normally wouldn't be usable.

Similarly, many characters span multiple forms of media and I notice that those not included in a given forum's genre are often brushed aside. This could also alleviate that a bit.

It will certainly be more creative. Just likely to be more hectic as well if not handled the right way. The rules would have to very explicit about how a thread gets started. Make the posters specify who is competing, what medium they're from, the source material in said medium, and so on.
