Face-Off suggestions have been declining in recent months, so if you have any ideas for face-off polls, we encourage you to suggest them. If you’re new to face-offs, perhaps expanding your poll repertoire to include these traditional Friday polls could be fun and spark your creativity.
Check out the following link to get acquainted with face-off polls and their construction:
If you’re acquainted with face-off polls already, may I ask you to put on what I know are very impressive thinking caps, and think “Face-Off Polls?” :) Thank you, in advance.
Some additional notes are below.
Things to Consider When Constructing a Face-Off Poll:
- Are the similarities between the options significant enough to draw.a comparison? If the similarities aren’t obvious, do you make a compelling case? Arbitrary comparisons tend to not go live.
- Is the face-off a fair fight? A character from a film with 10,000 votes doesn’t stand a chance against The Joker or Hannibal Lector, for example. Landslides are one thing but it’s best to avoid landslides that are easily predictable. (I say this as a face-off poll of mine just went totally lopsided. The best laid plans...)
- Face-Off polls need not be restricted to two options. They can also have three, four, or even five options.
- Familiarizing yourself with other face-offs is a good way to generate ideas, see what kinds of face-offs go live, and what face-offs attract votes (although a poll that will likely be popular does not necessarily go live before a quality match-up that might get significantly fewer votes). Here are some examples of successful face-offs:
