It would be nice . Maybe it could help to draw some attention to the foundry,etc
If you put something together, I will be happy to mention it in the Dispatch. Other than that, I can offer no help. I'm already stretched too thin.
I'll give what support I can with headlines and publicity.
I will try to do something nice. But ill need your help. Just advice wise
Just some guidelines on where to start. Wich forum should i use to create the thread, what kind of info,etc, just something like if it was you..how would you do it?
Feel free to drop me a pm if u think this is a good a idea. I will be glad to do it
I would start the thread right here in this forum. Seems the best place to start.
Ask Red Baron to sticky it and headline it.
When koontz did it, he used an survey website, surveymonkey.com, I think.
That gives you more flexibility. The poll option built-in to CC only allows you to ask one question at a time; surveymonkey allows you to ask all your categories at once.
If you want separate categories and you want to stay with the built-in polls, (ie. "best small map" "best large map" etc.) it's still possible. Then I think the best thing would be to run polls for short periods. After each period is up, you copy the results to the OP and re-set the poll. So if you have 5 questions to ask and you want to do this in 60 days, each question is in the poll for 12 days.
Still, surveymonkye or some other survey site will simplify all that and make it possible to ask all the questions at once, so I would go that way. You may have trouble getting people to come back over and over again every time you reset the poll.
Ask RebBaron if he has any leftover prizes in his departmental slush fund. Then you can offer a prize or two for people who vote. Always have some kind of "early bird" prize for people who do it quickly.
Be prepared to spam the shit out of it. Even stickied and headlined, it's tough to get people into the forums. Spam your clan, your friends, your tournament lists, and don't forget to ask the mapmakers to help. They should be showing an interest in this.
I'll be happy to mention your OP in the Dispatch, as well as your results once the polling is done.
