The BPR Top 5

We want to encourage everyone to keep voting for your Top 5 favorite looks from Season 2. The designs most frequently listed will be tallied to create the first ever BPR readers-choice design awards! Beginning next week we will count down the Top 5 vote getters (one each day) with pictures of the design, commentary and the chance for you to share your thoughts on what made each one so special. Official voting ends on Wednesday, so if you haven't done so yet, vote now!

Cool idea! But people have been making sure not to post their top 5 in both TWOP and here, and so you may have lost some people. Or else people have been posting twice, then we can't do the super-overall-tally.

Hmmmmm.

Laura K said...

Ooops! You're right - I voted in both. Sorry. I will delete my TwoP post. Also, I will edit the instructions to be sure we have no duplicates. Thanks again, Madpawn.

No problem! Just want the most accurate tally possible, so the winner is who deserves it for sure (unlike certain episodes, haha).

Do you need me to redo mine since I had a top eight technically??...lol

It would also be cool to have everyone vote on their absolute fave from the top five and get a number one...just a thought...

Tbone said...

AJ and others - if you listed more than 5, I'm only counting the top 5. If you listed a tie for 5th (as many have done), I'll only count the Top 4! So, you and others may want to go back and clarify your 5th place pick to make sure it gets counted.

BPR is commited to open, fair judging and refuses to gerrymander results. (Unless,um, the blog producers step in and, er, overrule the judges based on personality preferences) :)

Okay, after Wednesday I'll do the tallying of the TWOP thread and send it to you. Should we do
1- 5 points
2- 4 points
3- 3 points
2- 2 points
5- 1 point

Or another system?
Oh this is so exciting! I can guess who the winner is, but I have no idea about the other four!

Laura K said...

That sounds like a great idea. Are we really going to disregard all ties? Hmmmmmm... this is getting serious!

Okay folks, if you entered a tie, go in and delete your post and post a new one with only five choices - you're making this too hard to tally!

Or, we could do it like golf scoring. If there is a two-way tie for third place then we add up the points for third and fourth and divide by two. Then there is NO fourth place and the fourth place entry gets the one point because it is now in fifth place. ARGHHHHHH.....

A tie for fifth place would give 1/2 a point to each. Makes sense?

Actually, I think TBone will be tallying this for us, so I don't know why I am so concerned. He'll figure it out! But just for consistency, let's use Madpawn's point system.
: )

madpawn said...

If TBone does both this one and the TWOP one together, I'd be eternally grateful (and also relieved because that would be the most consistent way to do it).

If that's the case, may I still get a sneak preview of the results beforehand? :)

Tbone said...

Madpawn - I think weight averaging is going to be really tough. I've got an easier idea. Can we discuss via e-mail? Send me a message so we can talk more. Thanks!

Laura K said...

Madpawn, send me an e-mail to kluless7@cox.net and I'll forward it to TBone so that you two can work it out!

My top 5? Everything Jay did last season.

AJ said...

tbone, I fixed mine in the other post! Emmett's Barbie dress is my #5...

Tbone said...

That was my #5 too aj! I loved the sleeves on that dress. And I loved the fact that he actually made sleeves on a dress.

I know, right?! The dress was very hippie-chic with the bell sleeves (which ain't easy) and the tie-dyed looking fabric. Plus the beaded detailing...it was a really stellar dress:)

aj and tbone, I loved Emmett's Barbie dress too! I think he should have won that challenge. Oh, I have to get my act together fast and pick a top five!
