Welcome to Detective Conan Survivor!
Now that we've passed 600 episodes, what better way to celebrate than to revisit all of the cases that have got us here?
You may have seen Survivor games played out elsewhere (but hopefully not just on TV). Essentially, it will be a series of polls to give us a ranking of sorts for the many cases that have brought us up to the big number 600.
But, instead of normal polls where you would have a special like 304 receiving 95% of the vote and all other episodes getting 1 to 2 votes, Survivor works differently. In Survivor, instead of voting for your favorites, you vote for your least favorites. This way, the resulting rankings are more indicative of actual ranking than the usual format. 304 (for example) may still win, but, along the way, we'll get a pretty decent idea of what is second, third, fourth, and such. Beyond that, we will have the chance to discuss a mass of cases that have gone under the radar over the years.
The Survivor polls will take a while to finish, but by the end, we'll have a nice idea of how the DCTP community as a whole ranks the best and worst cases.
There will be multiple polls running concurrently for the most part (for the first few, we'll take it slow until everyone is introduced to the concept). From these, two to three of the cases with the highest votes will be eliminated (or, better put, removed from the top consideration). The first round will have quite a few polls, but the numbers will continue to dwindle until we are left with only an elite few remaining.
The pools were constructed with a certain (albeit lenient) formula in mind to ensure that there's a varied and hopefully balanced mix to each.
Along the way, not only will everyone have a chance to post their thoughts about cases they otherwise don't get to discuss often, but we'll also get to test various aspects of the ConanTV service. This is the part where we note not all episodes are up on the site, but as we go along, hopefully this will help give incentive to move the process along.
Remember! In Survivor, you vote for your two [size=140]LEAST favorites. Each poll will run from anywhere between 3 to 5 days.[/size]
Poll results will not be available until the poll expires on the announced day. You do not have to say what you voted should you not wish to, but feel free to discuss any of the cases featured!
NOTE: As of this initial posting, not all of these episodes are available on ConanTV. They are gradually being added, so if you are unsure of your vote, you can always check back later!
