Univision Electro Swing Compact (UESC)
« on: February 23, 2020, 03:30:02 PM »
The Univision Electro Swing Compact

The Electro Swing Compact has two stages. Pre-activation, when an "electro-swing moment" is declared, and activation, when an "electro-swing univision" is declared.

Pre-activation
If the following condition(s) are met:

i. the host of the upcoming univision is a member of the Electro Swing Compact

Then the host must declare an electro-swing moment. Upon the declaration of an electro-swing moment, all members of the UESC must:

i. send "generic entries" which may or may not be electro swing, to be used if the UESC fails to activate.
ii. send "electro-swing entries", which must be electro swing songs, to be used if the USEC activates.


Activation
If the following condition(s) are met:

i. upon closing of the entry deadline, at least half-plus-one of the participants are members of the electro-swing compact
ii. there are enough electro-swing songs such that every member of the UESC can vote for 10 electro-swing songs


Then the host will declare an electro-swing univision. Upon the declaration of an electro-swing univision, the following must occur:

i. the host will use the alternate "electro-swing entries" instead of the "generic entries" as the official entries for the members of the UESC.
ii. the host will order all UESC-member songs before all non-UESC member songs in the official song ordering.
iii. the host will reveal the official song ordering, and all members of the UESC must send their "electro-swing vote" to the host; the electro swing vote is a ranking of at most ten electro swing songs that were entered into the Univision.
iv. the host will reveal the "electro-swing results" based off of the "electro-swing vote". The electro-swing song that recieves the most points will be declared the "electro-swing nominee".
v. members of UESC are required to give their 15 to the electro-swing nominee unless it is their own song when submitting official Univision votes. They may distribute the rest of their points to other electro-swing songs as they like.


Result and Q/A

What's the point of this complicated process?
If the UESC activates, and all UESC members follow the rules, an electro-swing song is guaranteed to win Univision. This is because at least half of the voters will give their 15 to a single song.

What happens if there's a tie with a non-electro swing song?
In the case of a tie, which can only happen if both songs have an equal number of 15s, the electro-swing song will still win. This is because the earliest song in the running order wins, and the host is required to make sure that all electro-swing songs run before any non-electro swing song.

gentle reminder that collusion of votes to decide the winner (and in general) is against the spirit of the univision song contest and the rules as well

disciplinary actions may be taken if the compact goes into effect

http://paladinofstorms.net/univision/rules.html

i don't see anything about collusion in the rules and "spirit of univision" is quite nebulous. the rules also seem to be out of date in general (e.g. all votes must be sent to yqt1001, and all entries must be youtube videos)

declaring your intent to not fairly consider all submissions and only vote for members of a specific compact is hardly a nebulous violation of the spirit of the contest

you're really gonna take that position?

i don't think the rules need to explicitly state that you should vote fairly, but if we need to we can make them say that

i am taking that position because if i didn't, there'd be nothing to argue about. at least this way i have an excuse to post on USF! i do think it'd be nice to update the rules. maybe move them to the wiki?
