The ultimate episode ranking thread

We’ve rated episodes with threads like Hurt/Heal and top episode lists.

This is intended to be the ultimate TOS episode ratings thread. You rate all the episodes (or all the episodes you want to) and post your ratings in this thread. When we have enough participants, they’ll be analyzed with the Shulze method to produce a communal ranking.


HOW TO PARTICIPATE

Post your ballot in this thread. Each line of your ballot consists of a score followed by an episode title. Scores range from a low of 1 (the worst episodes) to whatever top score you choose. The only information taken from your ballot is relative preferences, so use whatever scale is most comfortable for you.

If there is an episode that you have not seen or on which you do not have an opinion, you may either leave it out of your ballot or use a dash (-) for the score.

Example #1:

Alice has seen ten episodes of TOS. She chooses a 3-point scale where 3 is good, 2 is average, and 1 is poor. Her ballot looks like this:

Code:
     3  Where No Man Has Gone Before
     2  The Corbomite Manuever
     1  Mudd’s Women
     2  The Enemy Within
     2  The Man Trap
     3  The Naked Time
     1  Charlie X
     3  Balance of Terror
     2  What Are Little Girls Made Of?
     2  Dagger of the Mind
     -  Miri
     -  The Conscience of the King
Example #2:

Bob has seen ten episodes. He chooses a top score of 100 and gives a complete ranking with this ballot:

Code:
    100  Balance of Terror
     90  The Naked Time
     80  Where No Man Has Gone Before
     70  The Corbomite Manuever
     60  The Enemy Within
     50  What are Little Girls Made Of?
     40  The Man Trap
     30  Miri
     20  Charlie X
     10  Mudd’s Women
Example #3:

Charlie grades episodes:

Code:
        78  The Naked Time
        81  Arena
        86  Journey to Babel
        52  And the Children Shall Lead
        82  The Tholian Web
        90  The Trouble With Tribbles
        74  I, Mudd
Include the line “truncate” for a truncated ballot. Episodes not on the ballot are scored below episodes on the ballot.

Example #4:

David has seen the whole series but just knows his favorites:

Code:
         50  The City on the Edge of Forever
         40  Mirror, Mirror
         30  The Trouble With Tribbles
         20  Amok Time
         10  Balance of Terror
        truncate
Simple as that!

You may replace your ballot at any time if you change your mind, want to rate episodes that you had not previously rated, or want to change your ballot for any reason. To do so, simply post your new ballot. Please don’t go back and edit old ballots, because the edits may go unnoticed and the changes uncounted.

Golly, this is really snazzy! I will participate, but this ballot will take at least a few days, maybe even a week. k?

I'm reading up on the Schulze method now. Looks fascinating.

More than k. Rating 79 episodes is naturally going to take more time than picking a top 10. Take all the time you need. There’s no deadline. I’ll update results on a regular basis as long as ballots keep coming in.

Re: The ultimate episode ranking thread

Question. Although it seemed to be implied that the answer to this is "yes", I just want to be sure. There can be gaps in my scale right? For example, my top score could be 1000. Right?

Also, captrek, you should lobby to get this thread pinned.

Good question. The answer is yes. I'll edit the examples above to demonstrate that.

I was thinking about that. I decided it would be premature to ask before more people have shown an interest.

I’m going to need a mod to add the example to the OP.

Example #3:
Charlie grades episodes:

Code:
78  The Naked Time
81  Arena
86  Journey to Babel
52  And the Children Shall Lead
82  The Tholian Web
90  The Trouble With Tribbles
74  I, Mudd

Include the line “truncate” for a truncated ballot. Episodes not on the ballot are scored below episodes on the ballot.

Example #4:
David has seen the whole series but just knows his favorites:

Code:
 5  The City on the Edge of Forever
 4  Mirror, Mirror
 3  The Trouble With Tribbles
 2  Amok Time
 1  Balance of Terror

Re: The ultimate episode ranking thread

Yes, there is still plenty of time.

My original plan was to pin the thread and periodically update the results as votes continue to trickle in. Unfortunately, there hasn’t been enough interest to justify asking for the pin, so the election will end when the thread dies its natural death.

With only two non-sample ballots in so far (my own and jk82’s), there’s little point to a tally. If and when we get a few more ballots, I’ll post a tally and update it as needed.

For personal reasons, I probably won’t be around much for the next week or so.

We’ve rated episodes with threads like Hurt/Heal and top episode lists.

This is intended to be the ultimate TOS episode ratings thread. You rate all the episodes (or all the episodes you want to) and post your ratings in this thread. When we have enough participants, they’ll be analyzed with the Shulze method to produce a communal ranking.


HOW TO PARTICIPATE

Post your ballot in this thread. Each line of your ballot consists of a score followed by an episode title. Scores range from a low of 1 (the worst episodes) to whatever top score you choose. The only information taken from your ballot is relative preferences, so use whatever scale is most comfortable for you.

If there is an episode that you have not seen or on which you do not have an opinion, you may either leave it out of your ballot or use a dash (-) for the score.

Alice has seen ten episodes of TOS. She chooses a 3-point scale where 3 is good, 2 is average, and 1 is poor. Her ballot looks like this:

Code:
3  Where No Man Has Gone Before
2  The Corbomite Manuever

2  The Enemy Within
2  The Man Trap
3  The Naked Time
1  Charlie X
3  Balance of Terror
2  What Are Little Girls Made Of?
2  Dagger of the Mind
-  Miri
-  The Conscience of the King

 40  The Man Trap
 30  Miri
 20  Charlie X
 10  Mudd’s Women

Simple as that!

You may replace your ballot at any time if you change your mind, want to rate episodes that you had not previously rated, or want to change your ballot for any reason. To do so, simply post a new ballot. Please don’t go back and edit old ballots, because the edits may go unnoticed and the changes uncounted.
