the idea of having vj-battles in the community (yes!yes!yes!!! ) has appeared in several threads (e.g. original content thread & cheese challenge thread ) ; so i figured i'd continue the discussion in a thread of it's own. here's my suggestion: make a new forum 'vj-battles' in the content or community (?) section of vjforums. there a battle/contest would be started by simply starting a new thread. to make implemantation easy works would be submitted by providing a link. every thread would also have a ranking which would work in a similar fashion as the polls do. every logged in user could submit/enter his personal ranking of the contesting vj's (but of course just once - though being able to edit changes would make sense). the momentary overall rankings would be displayed at the top of the thread (...& you could add loads of statistics once enough contests had taken place...). works could only be submitted before a deadline (choice of thread starter). also the (links to) works could be kept in a box of its own, to separate them from the posts, where a discussion could take place. ...so what do you other vjforians think of this suggestion?
