This could be done.

I wish polls could hold more than 10 options.

If we really wanted to do this, we could break up tours into 10 show blocks, and do the best of that ten, and then best of tour, and then best of year, and then BEST EVER.

This could probably take the better part of a year if done right.

The only thing I don't like about it is most of you noobs won't listen to every show. That is tough.

We should have a mass sticky thread to run for a few weeks where everyone could put in their nominations for greatest the phish show ever.

Every time you add a vote to a nomination which is already on the list, you would just add to it (ie. what we do in the phish album games, you just wouldn't be subtracting anything).

After that we could tally up the votes, take the top choices and seed them accordingly.

This is a Bracket Buster that I've wanted to do from the beginning, just to see what people's thoughts are about shows matching up with other shows and stuff like that.

I agree, seeding would be good. I think we'd also have to exclude all festival, one-set, Halloween and NYE shows. This would be for just regular 2-set shows.

Another part of me is not looking forward to people crying when their favorite show gets booted.

Especially me.

Yes, because I think this is something that would be fun. But like Will said, the challenge is that not everyone has access to all the shows or will have heard them before voting. I mean, you can vote for whatever you want, but it's better to make an informed vote.

We could keep it smaller, and do a 32-show tourney. With 8 seeds in 4 regions. 1 vs 8, 2 vs 7, etc. The problem - again, like Will said - is that people will bitch about shows being left out. Narrowing to 32 would be incredibly hard but I think doing a 64-show tourney is just too much. It would be up to the person or persons organizing this to say "OK, we're including this show but not this show" and ultimately the show left out is someone's favorite or something. Cue bitching and moaning.

So I dunno. I do think there is a solid list of shows that would be on everyone's top lists, so it's just a matter of identifying those.

This sounds like a great idea, fellas. I would love to see this happen. And it makes total sense to avoid the "special shows".

Could whining be curbed by allowing a short window of time to let everyone post a list of their 3 favorite shows before the seeding. And if that provides more than 32 or 64 shows, then nix the shows listed the fewest times????

^You do know that being a regular member is much cooler than being a mod, right? I mean, pretty much everyone on the Pa is a mod... only a couple of us are regular members. 8-) :thumbup: :wave:
