Reason why my system worked is that the back and forth allowed for some fun chitchat and allowed fans to strangthen the good episodes and weaken the weaker episodes. Tommy does not deserve the same chance of winning as Snow, for example.
Not to be a stick in the mud, but I probably won't contribute if we move to the second option.
Trust me, there's not that much of a difference between the two systems. There will still be as much discussion as you want.
If anything, I think this encourages more participants simply because whatever anybody votes isn't likely to be canceled out by the next nine posts, five of which are from the same person. I know that's why I didn't participate in the other one. There were essentially only three forces at work, and those same three posters filled up the bulk of the ten pages in that thread.

remember guys, its just a TV show, so instead of focusing too much attention to this rather then whats really going on in the world, we should just keep things fun.
I know I had a lot fun with the original style

I think though, to speed up the process next time (if survivor wins) we start at 3 points for each show. (this is a nonbinding suggestion). Also I think we should add to the rules that you have to wait at least 2 posts before coming back with another +/-.

As it stands, the game can be controlled by the people who happen to be at their computers a lot in one day. Hey, I took advantage of it as others did, but I think the additional waiting period might make it a more balanced game and more reflective of everyone's opinion, not just the opinion of a small handful.
These guys agree with me

I say have BOTH polls running in separate topics on a new "Games and Polls" board. One topic for the fun elimination style +/- and one for the boring one point at a time "tick the box" game. Both parties are happy. Because at the point, a 5/6 vote isn't really fair.

I don't know why we can't just do it the same as the first one. I wanted Balls/Friends to win, but it didn't. I've moved on. I mean so what if your episode didn't win. I thought the whole idea of it was an all out battle to the death for your favorite episode. The rules for the game were clearly posted and as far as I know no one cheated. Who cares if its "fair" or not.
