    I think comparing fits directly has been going on for a long time, and you can't pin it on one single poster.

    I would say these "battles" are tongue in cheek. It's not as if the loser is banned and the winner feted. There are no stakes (other than e-pride).

    I do think we should've provided a little more introduction, but I think at this point it's pretty clear what we're doing. I look at each picture posted in the WAYWT thread, work some robot magic, and try to pick two that are both interesting enough and similar enough for a meaningful choice. For example, I wouldn't pick a fit that's nothing but Rick and place it against a fit that's nothing but Thom Browne. It's too disparate for a meaningful battle.

    I promise you it's not as serious or dire as you're making it out to be. I'm just a friendly robot doing his job.

    Yeah, I think a way of notification to the participants would help.
    I think this would be a good way for critiques, but of course always possibly leads way to trolling and derailing.
    Just my 2 cents!

    (Also a thank you to everyone that likes my fit. I very much appreciate it!)

    I'm totally onboard with trolling and derailing.

    I don't really know if these types of threads are going to lead to any really meaningful critiques - it's much more of a quick visceral 'like/dislike'.

    interesting. well, as noted, i think it may work better with some promotion and a heads up to the contestants. :)



    in WAYWT he said they were yu-gi-oh (sp) cards. not sure if that changes your vote.

    I (re)programmed the robot to send out notifications that a participant will be thrown into the arena of death.

    Is there anything on LN-CC less than $500 anymore? (7).

    I do like this fit battle idea though.

    I'll work on some funny stuff, like "Goth ninja battle for a Self Edge certificate", which is actually not that crazy. Rick Owens buys flannels from there, and overdyes them. Or "Conservative business wear battle for Rick Owen's sneakers".

    Lol really? Do you have an example that I can look at?

    I kinda love potential DIY projects [​IMG]

    Anyways I'm onboard with the fit battle idea

    I find the fit battles more interesting when they feature 2 quite different types of fits that have a common theme.

    There was one fit battle with Ivwri vs an MC dude where they'd both used navy + black combinations that were cool.
