Except we’re adults now - fans rather than just consumers. We don’t need constant drip-feeding of shiny objects just to keep us engaged with the theme. By virtue of us still being here ten years after the theme’s been cancelled, we’re not going to drop out of the community just because things take a little longer.
I’m going to wait and see what they say on the subject. But if they want to take things slower than normal, people need to be understanding of that.
I took issue with your rhetoric of saying literally no one agrees with me. The topic of how long people are willing to wait hasn’t even been discussed by others here, as far as I can tell, so you can’t just assume everyone is so impatient that they can’t wait a little longer to get results.
And I would present the question to fans and to TTV of why we need to know the results of all four contests at the same time. Can’t we just treat them like separate contests and pace out the announcement of the winners? Maybe even a few respite periods between each as with the prior contests. Potentially that will help identify and rectify any unexpected issues with how the Hagah contests are being run, and prevent us running four contests badly instead of just one.
For TTV, the answer is partially what works best for them, which neither of us can attest to until they tell us. But also, I refer back to my original concerns of the risks of inconsistent depictions for the Hagah if we don’t stagger either entry periods or voting periods. The more opportunities we put in place to make sure inconsistencies are noticed and rectified increases the odds that we get a well-received set of designs.
The depictions we get at the end of these contests will last the lifetime of the Bionicle community, whereas the contests will last only months. I’d prefer that we take things slowly now if it means avoiding years of bitterness when the contests are over.
I doubt I have much more to say on this until I see what others and TTV think.
