TOAT - vote - Semifinals division B

For those of you who don't know, TOAT = Thread of All Time. There's a nomination thread, but that ship has sailed. No more nominations. The voting will begin. Since the max number of poll options is 25 and we have 28 nominations, this will have to be done in 2 threads to narrow it down to the top 10, and then the final vote will have to be done in a 3rd thread. So the top 5 vote getters in this thread will move on. The entries for Division B are here:

15. Has anyone seen this girl skank?
16. If you want to be an attractive guy in the USA, is being White very important? & Are things going to get better for non-White men with White women? [Merged]
17. Part 1: Check out this ebay seller & Check Out This eBay Seller Part Deux: The Crayons Strike Back! & Part Three: The Crayons Travel. Trade For A Picture & Crayon on parade (part IV) & Crayon on Parade (Part V) - Waxing Nostalgic - The Crayon Threads
18. Photochop my friend pt 3 aka Daddy Cool
19. Post your DISASTROUS DATE experiences -
20. How many have been told to stay away from the DVD trash bins at rental stores? aka danol Dumpster dive
21. My vacectomy ended in frostbite. A public service announcement. RE culd de sacs
22. Does bread shrink when you freeze it?
23. Just got my tattoo done...
24. Diner etiquette regarding sitting at the counter & My new neighbors won't let anyone park in front of their house & I hate my neighbor's gardener (a Mabuse micro-rant) & Neighbor who flies Palestinian flag. What's up with that? aka Best of Mabuse rants
25. Is my girlfriend crazy? (Believes she doesn't need a license to drive)
26. First time stripping.
27. A Guide To Knowing Your Tenants. In The Biblical Sense.
28. Ghostbusters (2016) - The Trailer

OMG, the crayon and danol threads, classic!

The photo heavy threads like skank girl and Daddy Cool will be a tougher sell considering a lot of the pics are now lost in the internet ether. Too bad, because those were fantastically funny.

Re: TOAT - vote - Semifinals division B

Wait, we can only vote for 1 out of 14? Shouldn't there be more mini rounds?

We'll be here all year voting on threads. If someone wants to run it another way, maybe we could do it again next year. Not that we're producing much content these days.

Re: TOAT - vote - Semifinals division B

What's going to be annoying is that some clown is going to swoop in at the last min and tie the vote on one or more of the thread totals. We need to develop a tiebreaker. I can't have run off threads, it's going to take too long.

Re: TOAT - vote - Semifinals division B

I voted for the Indian guy who complained about not get laid by white women, well he finally did get laid than complained about using protection. It was kind of appalling but two funny threads.

Re: TOAT - vote - Semifinals division B

Since Mabuse is generally unfunny - the thread of him getting punked by tourists is karma for his atrocious jokes.

Re: TOAT - vote - Semifinals division B

I read the titles too quick and voted incorrectly.

The Crayons idea and follow-through is a masterpiece.

Nothing better than a poster coming here for validation and everyone siding with the other person and raking the OP over the coals.

Edit: Nevermind, I just read the entirety of the OP and Vin is basically doing what I suggested because he's a smart man.

I've never made a bracket myself, so what do I know, but I'd think a good way to generate reading, commenting, and a certain level of competition would be:
Round 1 - 6 weeks of thread groups of 4-5 threads, top voted moves on.
Round 2 - 2 weeks of thread groups of 3, top voted moves on.
Round 3 - 1 week of the top 2, winner takes all.

Yeah, it draws it out, but I think in a good way. It generates traffic discussion, nostalgia, and community building and gives people an actual opportunity to read through all the threads fully (that dating one is amazing, worth savoring!) and have some fun with it for a season.

Re: TOAT - vote - Semifinals division B

Well, I'm honored to have a nominee in both sections. My immediate favorite is Disastrous Date Experiences but like I said in the other section, I'm going to read or at least skim all the other nominees before voting. (BTW my crazy ex-girlfriend now has a driver's license.)

Re: TOAT - vote - Semifinals division B

Landlord should win TOAT hands-down, but since you insist on going to semifinals, I voted for another Smithee thread, the only one in this poll I remember, "Is My Girlfriend Crazy?"... Eddie Money made me laugh before the tenth reply which is a good qualifier for judging threads.

That guy creeped me out. He had to be some kind of rapist.

I'm just going to sticky both threads so they don't fall by the wayside before 10/1/18. This is really important stuff.

I voted for the DVD trash bin, maybe more nostalgia than anything and how I remember it around here back in the day. RIP Danol.

That's an excellent tiebreaker. Posts + Views. And for the entries with multiple threads (aka "best of), the highest engagement thread will be the one considered in the tiebreaker.
