    This has been a solid G R B thus far and I want to thank you all for participating.

    The final battle will consist of:

    MC Propaganda
    Duane Jackson
    Illy
    Punches
    Pace

    What this thread is about, is about the community of Rapmusic.com.

    Thus far the G R B has been limited to votes from judges and participants which could range anywhere from 8 - 12 votes.

    In the final round, with these five men giving it all that they have - I want the entire community to voice the winner.

    I would like to lift the permissions on the G R B forum and allow voting to all established members (5000 posts or more).

    I would do away with polls so aliases could be easily traced and only enable "feedback" voting.

    This way our entire community has a voice to choose the 2013 G R B champion and not just an elect 8-12.

    Tell me your thoughts?

    Vote on the poll as well.

    I dont think its far to anyone left in the tourney to change the voting at this point. There are people here who have been here 10 plus years that have aliases beyond aliases on deck with 5000 posts. That just leaves the door open to have a field day. I would say leave it the way it is, maybe establish a few more reputable judges and save the new voting ideas for next tourney

    Otherwise punches winning based on goonies voting alone.

    I don't typically have a problem with anything you guys decide

    but I can't say i'm comfortable with that idea based on the insane amount of friendships/jock riding that consist between people on this board. Not to mention aliases galore.

    It might not be a bad idea, but i definitely wouldn't use the finals a guinea pig to test it. You waited way too long to implement into an ongoing tourney my bros.

    I say let this tourney ride out the way it has at this point and then move on with new ideas. Otherwise this has the possibility of turning into an even bigger circus. Why change the rules now?

    You're damned if you do, damned if you don't.

    The easy solution is to only take the remaining 5's opinion on your poll into consideration.

    All good perspectives.

    This is about the community.

    That's the reason we even did this.

    Everybody has a chance to voice their opinion here.

    This isn't a test. This is just an opportunity for everyone in the community who is an established member to have a say in who becomes champ of Rapmusic.com's G R B.

    Definitely good perspective though.

    I don't see how a poll decides this.

    You're basically making it to where if dzk wants to round up 50 names over 5k of people he knows and vote against Duane then he's fucked.

    Changing something that monumental this late in the game is only playing with people's money

    I don't know why the Community should be able to change rules mid tourney if the battlers left are against doing so. Tyranny of the majority. Battlers paid $. Judges paid $. The community sat idly by and bickered. Just imho.

    I don't really care...but IMO, i think you should try to get as many unbiased judges you can that would actually listen to all the verses and give a good critique, and drop a vote. If you get 5 judges or 20 judges, doesn't matter as long as you would think they are honorable.

    That's understandable to a degree, and it may be a good idea, I'm not against the idea of it. But if it backfires and only makes things more sloppy, it would be the worst time to let it happen to people who've dealt with the rules as they are this far and worked this hard to get this far bro

    It sounds good in a perfect world. But there are dozens of members here with over 5k. And don't even post in AEH. Anybody can hit their pms and be like vote for this person. Vote this nigga last etc. To easy to fuck somebody over. If yall gonna add more judges. I think yall should atleast hand pick them.
