We devote this thread to try and pick the winner (hopefully by or before the merge) by looking at the editing, player by player, and applying logic from past editing patterns or observations about what we have been shown.
How Edgic Works
Everyone is welcome to participate, so for anyone new who wants to jump on board here is generally how it goes:
After watching each episode posters rate the players:
Ratings: OTT, CP, MOR, UTR and INV
OTT (over the top)
CP (complex personality)
MOR (middle of the road)
UTR (under the radar)
Tone: NN, N, neutral (no tone), P, PP (Rate players from Really Negative to Really Positive)
* M (Mixed) This is a special Tone designation. It is used when a player has both negative and positive scenes in one episode. It helps differentiate from the "nothing" (neutral) tone of a neglected character. It shows active manipulation of a character, rather than a passive or neglected edit.
Visibility: 1-5 (From 1 or low visibility to 5 or high visibility)
Comprehensive Guidelines and Charting:
Below in Warrior's next two posts are the more detailed comprehensive guidelines we use, and some charts that will come in handy for analysis.
Visibility Charts (Warrior) are next.
Strategy (MasterDarkNinja) and Second Person Visibility (scepticA) charts come in the next two posts.
Watchdog Reports on Individual Players:
Following Strategy and SPV are posts from Individual Watchdogs (WDs). A Watchdog makes a special effort to study a specific player. These posts offer links to their reports made each episode.
Old Edgic Threads
Old Edgic threads are in the "Survivor Attic", if you would like to read-up on past seasons (note - not all seasons were saved and some seasons are out of order.)
Once there seems to be a general consensus of trust in your participation,(in understanding how Edgic works and your positive participation), simply pm chaperone or me, fat little fingers, and ask for the voting site address.
*Special Note: Newbies, though you don't have the official voting site, your ratings (and especially your reasons for them) are appreciated and can contribute greatly to the Edgic outcome.
New posters are welcomed and encouraged. New ideas and fresh eyes are good for Edgic.
This thread has always been flame-free and we also strive to keep it spoiler-free. That should not change for this season.
