Forums - General Discussion - A VGC Encyclopedia/Wiki?

So, from what I know, we don't have anything like this for the site. However, I think it'd be funny/interesting if someone were to make one Especially some of the older users here with vast knowledge of the site's history that could write about the older users or incidents that occurred.

Seems like a lot of effort..

If this was a year ago, I would have considered it :p

I eagerly await to read an essay about how the Greatest User Tournament 2014 was rigged.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Well, who better to expose it than the winner himself!

Didn't you just claim the 2017 one was rigged too? Maybe they're all rigged :O

It's a simple numbers game, Ka-pi. When each round has anywhere between 30 to 50 votes in total, a group of only 6 to 10 people can already control 20% of the votes. While that's not enough to guarantee an outcome, it's enough to skew the outcome because many rounds are rather close to begin with.

I want to do an experiment for GUT 2018. I want to see if we can get Libara to win, particularly because he almost never posts on the site and is thus an unknown to many people, but he is fairly well-known among the Discord users. I think that would be a good way to put this theory into practice.

In principle I agree with you, there definitely seems to be some bias involved which perhaps shouldn't be. But that's still people choosing who they want to vote for (even if it perhaps is based on different criteria than you or I would vote on), so it still seems like a bit of a stretch to call it rigged.
