So, I recently had a skin battle to cap off my 200 sub celebration.

After doing so, I though it would be cool if a new type of post was added; a skin battle.

This new type of post would look like a double sided skin post. Each side would have the skinner and their skin on it. Over each skin would be the diamond count and people could pick which one they liked better. (Favorites and downloads would stay the same)

Setting it up would be fairly simple, you would type in the name of the person that you wanted to battle and they would get a notification. If they accepted, they would get access to their half of the post. Then, you both would upload your skins the same way it's usually done.

Experience from diamonds/downloads/favorites would stay the same. The experience from views would be divided in half.

The preview would be a half/half preview, with one skin over the other. Or side by side.

the weighted score of a submission's views, downloads, comments, favourites, and diamonds, divided by the logarithmic weight of time


Wut?


Add all the numbers. Divide by the number of days since posting. Get a number. Rank submissions by that number. The top ones go on the popular reel. Check the numbers every few seconds and recalculate.

That's KINDA how hotness works, but way simplified.


Okay. The word "logarithmic" was what threw me off.

This isn's about A skin battle. It's about the implementation of a new post/section for battles. (skinning, building, etc.)

I read in the spoiler that it said Hotness. So... could there be like a diamond thingy only it would be a little flame instead of a diamond?

I also agree with everything that you just said. (Or said a long time ago.)

Hotness is already implemented. It's the weighted score of a submission's views, downloads, comments, favourites, and diamonds, divided by the logarithmic weight of time since posting. This score is checked per account & IP to keep multi-accounts from falsely inflating submissions that may not deserve the attention.

All of the submissions on the site have a 'hotness' rating, it's the driving force behind how the popular reels and "What's Hot" sections of the site work. You (and everyone else on the site) affect a submission's hotness score every time you interact with it.

For everyone ever asking "How do I get submissions on the popular reel" - there is the long answer. The short answer is still "Make things that people want to see".

Amusingly, the "What's Hot" section is also the easiest place to find stolen work that gets reposted, because apparently 90% of the site don't recognize something that's been posted before by someone else when they see it and immediately assume that the person who posted it is the original author.

(Copied from a post I made about this roughly five months ago)


I actually really like the concept of "Skin Battles". I like that they engage users, and I like that they can bring out the more creative and competitive sides that drive the community to create nicer stuff.

I am unsure what the mystery updates Paril keeps hinting at are, but I feel like this thread would now be a good place to discuss what might be a good system for user-based contests. I was thinking about this for a while today and kinda anticipating finding this thread when I got home.

To make this happen properly will require quite a bit of site-design work. It's not something that can or will happen immediately, but these are the ideas I have on how to actually make this happen.

So, there you have it. How I think this might work. If you require any clarification, just ask. Any thoughts/improvements?

I've thought about this before. It would be nice to have a place in our 'contests' tab for user-generated contests.
