I think different countries have different responses from the fans, I had plenty of Japanese fans voting for Plush, for some reason the Japanese fans are more willing to vote. Maybe other formats would be more suitable for fans from other countries? What do you think?
If someone wants to start new threads for the new battles go ahead, I prefer not to do it myself because I don't want to flood the forum with a new thread for my site every three days.
As for your questions:
IMO, the battle suppose to attract more votes since fans are at 'war', and the name is fine for such purpose (to have a winner over certain subject). So keep on and have fun!
Difference among countries sure: Japanese are crazy about FS so it is understandable majority votes come from Japan.
i just thought if the rest of post is to discuss about new battles, it is better to have its own thread. Maybe you can open a post name just '3-day battle' but not put skaters name.
Or you could call it "Three-Day Battle: Vote for Your Favorite."
I can see that more Japanese fans would vote because I see them as one of the most extensively wired of all countries, along with South Korea. They're always among the first to post YouTube videos of skaters, for instance. But it's nice that many of them voted for Plushenko.
