Following in the vein for the GWE, the GME is here. It's going to be hosted on a new board.

Rules are similar. All laid out on the board. Join, discuss, have fun.

I will make an honest effort to get involved with this.

Yeah, I got here sort of in the final 1/4th or so of the GWE and decided not to submit, so when the opportunity came to help get this off the ground I was pretty pumped to be involved. 

 

We have a pretty solid start on nominations going right now and am happy to see people pumped about this already.

Is it acceptable for this to throw out nominations like say Eddie Kingston vs. Mike Quackenbush from High Noon. Nothing that will ever make a list but something that's worthwhile and people might have missed?

Sure, I'm in. I hope at least the roll out will be on PWO due to the visibility and whatnot.

I'll take part. This will give my viewing some direction in the coming months.

This is something I've been wanting to do for a while now.

I can't really speak for everyone, but I would sort of take this approach:

 

If you think it deserves consideration as a greatest GME candidate, even if you likely wont vote for it if you turned in a ballot now, sure! I don't think people should feel like they can or cannot nominate based on what they assume people will vote for. 

However, if you just think it is a match that people should see, I think there are probably other forums for that.

 

The line is thin and fuzzy but it comes down to intent for me. To nominate we hope people will take a minute to talk about why it is nominated (though honestly I got pretty burnt while doing lots so mine got pretty surface level and redundant). If you think it should be in the conversation with greatest matches ever... go for it. I am sure I will have a few matches that are super long shots for anyone's list, but I may think they have qualities that deserve consideration.

If you think it has a shot for your list or anyone's list, then nominate it. No guarantees anyone else will help it along, but no harm.

Also, Eddie Kingston vs. Mike Quackenbush would likely make my list.

If you want to vote on it, it needs to be nominated! I'm being strict this time.

I'm on board with this. Much more up my alley than the wrestler ranking bullshit. Why isn't it on PWO, though?

GWE was... umm.... divisive. The powers that be - I think smartly - decided it should be a separate project so as to avoid potentially building on that in this space.

 

Plus I think logistically this is going to require a a lot of threads and it is probably easier to just keep it separate since there are match threads here and the conversations might be somewhat different.

I asked that it not be, since GWE's lasting impact on this board was a bit negative and the discussion became too personal at times. I don't think that's the destiny of all countdown projects, and I'm sure this one will go well. It's just that for a variety of reasons, I don't think this is the right message board to do it.

Looks fun.  I'll get involved regardless of where it's hosted.  Kudos for the work setting it up.

Hope GME is nearly as successful as GWE at creating long lasting grudges.
