Favorite SpongeBob Episodes Voting Thread

Post by whuntva » Mon Feb 18, 2019 3:40 am

I gauged interest, and it seems some people were willing to have a SpongeBob Poll. SpongeBob SquarePants is one of the longest-running American animated shows. With 515 segments across 244 episodes (and counting!), there is no shortage of material for a poll. While Seasons 1-3 (and maybe 4) are generally considered the best, there are still enough segments across the whole show to make things interesting.

So we're clear, anyone can vote. Since I am anticipating a smaller pool, the setup will be a bit more lax. I'll set up a two-week deadline, with the due date being March 4. Unless anyone wants more time.

Rules:
[*]For purposes of this poll, 11-minute segments will count as separate episodes. For example, "Survival of the Idiots/Dumped" aired back to back as part of the two shorts format. You may vote for one or the other, or have both on your list, but not both in the same place. They have to be separated for your ballot.
[*]The two theatrical films for the show are not eligible for this poll. However, extended episodes like "The Sponge Who Could Fly" are eligible.
[*]If you need a list of episodes, the official wiki has you covered.
[*]At least five episodes/segments are necessary for a ballot to be counted. There is no limit to how long your list can be, but only the first twenty will receive points.
[*]This is the scoring mechanic I will be using:

1. 20
2. 19
3. 18
4. 17
5. 16
6. 15
7. 14
8. 13
9. 12
10. 11
11. 10
12. 9
13. 8
14. 7
15. 6
16. 5
17. 4
18. 3
19. 2
20. 1

Also, I've gotta give a shout-out to the single best joke in SpongeBob, unless you count the last 2 minutes of "Band Geeks" as one long joke, but for the sake of this discussion I'm not.

Alright, with one week in the books, I seem somewhat satisfied with the turnout.

I knew Cold Butterfly was interested, so I might try tracking them down. But otherwise, things are pretty nice for this silly little poll. Two more Mondays and it should be done.

Alright, we just have the weekend to go, and there are quite a few ties.

I would like to have at least one more vote break some ties down ballot, but overall this went over better than I expected. I already know how the rollout will be.

Thank you everyone for participating!

Last call for votes!

Poll will remain open all day today, and rollout begins Tuesday as soon as possible. I will be off on some personal matters that day, but I should still have time for at least part of it.
