We devote this thread to try and pick the winner 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.
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
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 significant negative and significant positive scenes in one episode. It helps differentiate from the "nothing" (neutral) tone of a neglected character or the static neutral of a middle of the road or complex character. It shows active manipulation of a character, rather than a passive or neglected edit.
Note: If an edit contains minor P manipulation but a lot of N manipulation, then the rating is not Mixed, but Negative, as the N manipulation overwhelms the P (and vice versa). Very minor P & N manipulation is better recorded as a Neutral.
Visibility: 1 to 5
(From a low of 1 to a high of 5)
New posters are welcomed and encouraged. New ideas and fresh eyes are good for Edgic.
We ask that Edgic be kept spoiler-free and ask everyone's cooperation in keeping boot spoilers and winner spoilers out of the Edgic thread and discussion.
This thread has always encouraged constructive comments. Make an effort to communicate with some patience and respect, before going straight to the flame-thrower, okay?
Be polite... there is no need to be arrogant or disrespectful here.
A note on external sources of information:
The original idea behind Edgic was to analyze based on the edited 43 or so minutes of the actual show.
Over time, there have been new sources of information for the show including blogs, interviews, facebook, twitter, insider videos, whatever that video thing is that Jeff is doing now and so forth. We ask that these (and other similar) sources of information be kept out of Edgic.
