I know that a lot of people probably have some kind of mixture between the different factors, but I was just hoping to know how others view the Awards voting, so if you would just pick your standard variable (I assume that nobody is in a situation where they can vote for a studio mate most of the time, for instance).

 

I hope that the alternatives I thought of are self-explanatory.

 

By fun titles, I mean those that are funny or weird. I for one love the titles that end up sounding bizarre, like things about "Monster Gherkins" or "Grandmas" (yeah, I snicker when I picture that old granny with dentures and all...).

 

By "good" title I mean a decent porn title (i.e., a title that is good or interesting other than just funny).

 

I know that custom titles can fall into either of the other title categories (they can often be either funny or good) but this alternative is if you give special weight to the fact that it is a custom title or just focus on the actual title itself (whether it is funny or good).

 

By the covers, I mean by "hot" one that you find appealing as a pornographic cover (sexy, I guess) and funny, well some characters can look pretty outlandish.

 

I guess there could be other factors, but those are the once I figured most likely. I'd love to know how other people treat their voting for the Awards. I love picking movies, and I try to make my own seem interesting to other people (partly because it's fun and rewarding to get votes).

 

On the whole, I usually go for the good title. I don't pay much attention to the cover itself other than if it somehow feels like it is a real mismatch to the title (like a title about girls with two men on the cover...)

I never really bother reading the titles at all :O Didn't really think anyone cares about them since their mostly just random generated x)

 

+ 1 to "hot" cover, just the more appealing cover for me, not necessarily pornographic :P

I wasn't sure how I should put it regarding the "serious" cover option.

 

Anyway, I love to either pick a great random title or make my own. I've noticed that I've been doing pretty well these past two seasons on custom titles, though it might also be my boobs that are attracting the votes... (angel)

I always try to use the Standard titles, and match the cover to it as well as possible using only notes...

Neat poll.

 

For me I gravitate to "hot cover".  It has to be graphically appealing.  I'm shocked at how many submitted entries have the title covering faces, eyes, etc - that's an automatic "no vote" from me.  Everyone has the ability to control the title and or cleavage from appearing in that unappealing way.

Yeah, I get what you're saying about bad covers TaraBing. I always go for the notes to use the plain text without frills (depending on cleavage either above or below the faces). I hate the big "supreme" sticker thing which to me just about always ruins the cover. I think that you can always make a decent cover using just notes, but I guess a lot of people just go with the generated cover rather than put down maybe a thousand notes (it's not really that much compared to what other things cost) and a few seconds to make it look better.

 

The covers are still a little hard to make that interesting though (obviously it would be great if the developers would add more options, but I don't blame them for keeping it fairly simple since I hope they're busy working on continuing the story after Los Vengeles... or adding more costumes). My hope is for the developers to put in some way of featuring other players as co stars on covers (that way you could have way more variation than the fairly limited number of co stars).

 

On the topic of covers though. Do you dress up in different clothes for the covers than your ordinary gear? I have been playing around with doing covers and titles that are thematic, such as this current Awards season when I've put forward a fire fighter porno with my starlet wearing the fire fighter bottoms (though obviously not the helmet, that just looks bizarre, especially on a woman...). I find the Awards part of the game really fun, and regardless of whether people care when they vote or not, I still think it's just a bit of fun if someone at least appreciate the small effort. Doing thematic covers is another reason for me to collect new costumes.

 

Or maybe most people just don't care about movies and just use them to get their fans and the notes and experience you get in the process. I find it a really neat part of the game, but maybe I'm the oddball.

I used to be more meticulous (and usually spent notes) on making every cover more visually appealing (including changing out the costumes) when all covers were submitted automatically in the BBA (Big Bang Awards) weekly contest, but now that is not the case.  With the BBA rules changing to submitting just one entry per player per week, now all those "extra covers" get little consideration to be improved.  I generally leave them as-is which are often terrible looking; Bad examples include: Title (subject matter) & artwork do not match, Titles are covering up faces and eyes, "Supreme" banner is taking up 1/3 of the entire layout, bad color combinations existing or bad contrasting actor skin tones with default backgrounds, etc. and that's just to name a few.

 

Speaking of colors, let's get a "color palette" for the Titles.  Sometimes White, or Purple with Black, or Purple with White are not enough choices.  Leave the templates for all 3 letter designs, but be allowed to change out the Purple with some other color, like the Studio logo designer.  I think this has already been suggested in another thread.

I'm doing the same thing with just trying to have the one good cover in a week. Usually when I get a bit of good luck on the co-star and 'cleavage' (where the stars are positioned) that's the cover I go with, and spend notes (and change my outfit) to try to make it work as well as I can. Any time I get an awkward layout, or one of the generic co-stars, I just leave it the way it is and hope for better luck next time to use as my cover of the week.

Oh I forgot to say, I voted 'hot cover', the way I see that is (if there's a choice) I'll always vote for a cover with a smiling star over one who isn't smiling.

When I vote, I look for titles that match a cover. I do think that a cover should look appealing, but if they don't match, I don't vote for them.

Most important: If it says, "from your studio", it gets my vote.

 

After that, I check out the BBA money spenders.  You know, the ones that buy votes and win the BBA regularly, by spending money instead of actually showing that they have any talent or ability? I vote for the other cover each and every time I recognize a cover from people who don't deserve votes. I am not going to subsidize them... I prefer they subsidize the game developers instead, and every vote they don't get from me, is one more vote they have to donate diamonds to the developers.

 

After that... graphical design. Get the titles out of the characters faces, etc. Make it look attractive, neat and hot. If it mentions a profession like a hot nurse, wear an appropriate costume.

 

I hate any title with a misspelled word, and will vote against it.  I also rarely vote for grandmas, grandpas or gherkins.  

 

And lastly, i vote for bewbs.  I mean, how can you not?

Most of what Tara said up there is how I vote for films as well... If the text is covering the players/costars faces, I won't vote for it and simply choose the opposite.. On another note, I don't usually vote for redhead players or ones with the cartoon anime faces either, unless it says "From your studio" at the top...

Whoa Yibbies - are we cut from the same cloth?  Perhaps.  The fabric of your life.   (smug)

PS: My voting pattern remains pretty much the same, and I wrote those notes over 11 months ago.

Great post Capt.  I embedded and re-ordered icons to make this reply "easier" to read.

 

 

(drinks2)  Most important: If it says, "from your studio", it gets my vote.   

 

(I also vote for) After that... graphical design.

 

Get the titles out of the characters faces, etc. Make it look attractive, neat and hot. If it mentions a profession like a hot nurse, wear an appropriate costume. 

 

 

:excl:  I check out the BBA money spenders.  

 

You know, the ones that buy votes and win the BBA regularly, by spending money instead of actually showing that they have any talent or ability?

:cool: I hate any title with a misspelled word, and will vote against it.  I also rarely vote for grandmas, grandpas or gherkins.   

 

 

:blush: And lastly, i vote for bewbs.  I mean, how can you not?  

 

I agree with all these here >  (drinks2)

 

:excl:  Are you suggesting some studios semi-rig the contest (within the rules of course) by spending diamonds to refresh the two candidate selections on the final day hoping one of their studio's selections come up when only the TOP-100 are presented?  That's an expensive proposition - is it worth that?  It's also not readily known who you are voting for, unless you have the TOP-100 movie covers memorized, or recorded as to what player and which studio made each title.

 

I'm not sure this is the reason why the selection refresh was created, but in the truest sense of the word, that seems broken. But if players spending diamonds help keep the game solvent, is it a problem that requires fixing?  Nobody likes pay to win, but this game encourages it in spurts.

 

:cool: Gerkins can be nice. (hehe)

 

:blush: And I am embarrassed to ask - what is a "bewbs" ?  Ah, never mind - I looked it up... it's meme for "Boobs, glorious Boobs."  Sorry, I broke out in song, there.

Back in the bad old days, Dommeat won everything by throwing diamonds at each and every challenge until he won them. Between Dommeat and Hardcore, not many chances for competitive players. Your choices were lose, or give up and join them.

 

I firmly believe that is why many people left UK1 for other servers, or other games. 

 

...And I will mention no names... but these are bad NEW days.

Only one more comment: In the US, gherkins are SMALL pickles, made using immature fruit.  Just saying -- all those "mighty gherkins" are an oxymoron here.   :rolleyes:
