    Cripper Award 2017 Official Thread

    by Britta » Mon Feb 20, 2017 7:36 am

    Ahoi Sailors!

    It is great to see that 2017th Cripper Award contenders are already so eagerly discussed! I am starting this new thread here for a better overview and also to kickstart the official poll that is about to be launched.

    If I followed all the postings correctly, these are the confirmed nominees so far:

    CRYPTEX
    DALRIADA
    STRIKER
    TOTAL DEATH
    TOUCH THE SUN
    WITCHTRAP

    also mentioned by sailors, but discussed as being too popular (like Avatarium as an all-star-band):

    ALLEGAEON
    AVATARIUM
    GHOST SHIP OCTAVIUS
    MISERY LOVES CO
    ORDEN OGAN

    Is that correct?

    Cheers to all of you from rainy Hannover! Looking forward to the voting :3drunks:

    This would basically mean considering candidates the six bands that UMC considered candidates. This option makes sense to me.

    Another vote for Dalriada. To be fair, I missed Cryptex and Striker, but saw the others.

    I couldn't care less for which of those bands won the award, but I do think Trauma should be in there among the contenders.

    The candidates should be agreed upon by tomorrow, since the poll will be launched.
    So "If any of you has reasons why these bands should not be nominees, speak now or forever hold your peace" :D

    It's a shame I can't vote for Ghost Ship Octavius, but oh well. It'll be Dalriada for me, I'd feel wrong voting for the Alberta boys since I don't really like them.

    DALRIADA!The Wall of Death late night was awesome and not knowing their music very much they were excellent.That is the basis of a Cripper band,a live show not the catalog you discover then see live.Avatarium should win some new award,most enthusiasm from a doom band ever,best show of whole cruise in Ice Rink but I was a fan for many years.

    I gather that Saltatio Mortis is also too well-known to be considered?

    But Striker is? Or our past winners Nightmare, Cripper..? In any case, if we're using last.fm stats for determining the contenders, Trauma should definitely be one.

    Age of the band shouldn't be an issue indeed. Trauma have been around for many many years, but who knew them? I bet less than 5% of the cruisers knew who these guys were before they got announced...

    I'm not saying I have an interest in them nor that I would vote them (I think they're terrible), but adding them would make perfect sense to me.

    Exactly. I have no desire to vote for them, but leaving them out due to them having had a well-known member in the past would make the contender selection arbitrary. Trauma has under 600 listeners on last.fm, which makes them the third smallest band onbroad this year.

    Oh hey look, an influx of people with little to posts, voting for bands that no one mentioned enjoying before the voting started. Gee, I wonder if bands are telling people to vote for them. Again. :bitch:

    Is there any way we can prevent this? Ban people with minimal posts from voting? Disqualify bands that advertise the vote?

    Have UMC send out another code/poll like they did with the ASJ a couple years ago. Or for future years, add it on to the survey.

    Simple fix, solves this issue of randoms inflating votes just because bands are asking for them again... :bitch:

    Exactly what happened - Witchtrap posted on their Facebook page AND the 70k facebook group.

    I'm really not a fan of that.

    Trump claims that Witchtrap is being voted for by all illegals.

    I often lurk on here, and have been on six cruises. I hardly ever comment, but always log in to vote for the Cripper award for cruises I've been on. So having a minimal post count to qualify for voting would probably mean I couldn't vote. It would also mean people who only went on the most recent cruise and decided to join the forum afterwards wouldn't be able to vote.
    Definitely agree that something needs to be done about bands begging for votes, though. That doesn't seem in keeping with the spirit of the award.

    Which is why I mentioned what I did.

    Surely it can't be hard for UMC to setup a one page survey and email codes out for it instead of this flawed method.

    They ought to allow only those with booking numbers from the most recent cruise to vote, that way even the newbies can cast their vote. UMC could do it, but I'd feel bad bothering them about something like this when they're already so busy as it is.
