THE VOTING IS NOW CLOSED
KLONDIKE, CPA Central HQ – While this is later than it was supposed to be, we are finally ready for the time of the year in which you vote for the most influential people in our community. In a turbulent and interesting year of highs and lows to date, this list honours those who have left the biggest impact on our community in the first half of 2016.
During the first part of this year we have seen many changes in the armies that have been the most dominant. Early on in the year, the Army of CP and Underground Mafias Army held great success under strong leaderships – but these two armies dropped off and new armies such as the Light Troops and Night Warriors returned to fight for the right to be called the biggest army. As of late, as we moved into the summer, the Rebel Penguin Federation and Water Vikings have had great success in growing to be the two stand-out armies. Other incredible stories include the quick growth and then drop of the Pretzels and Ice Warriors under similar controversial leaderships.
The idea of this list is to congratulate those who have had the biggest influence in the community recently, even if this is a positive or negative impact. This list does not share the same magnitude of the Person Of The Year List, towards the end of the year, but it does share a similar idea in that it orders people based on influence and not popularity. Also, while the Person Of The Year list is constructed by CPA Central Staff – this list is partially decided by the viewer.
The way this works is simple, really. We make a list comprised of around 50 people who currently hold some of the most influence in armies, whether that be as a leader, in the media, as a retiree, or anything else. From that list, you narrow it down to the 25 most influential and submit a vote in order, with 1 being the most influential and 25 being the least. Taking those votes, we calculate the rankings using a point system based on placement. Although some edits are made to the final list, the public vote is intricate in deciding where many candidates end up placing, as they set a model for what the public truly thinks. The candidates for this year’s CPA Central 25 are below.
- Red Gush
- Lorenzo Bean
- Zing King To
- Super Edwin
- King Mondo
- Doctor Mine Turtle
As already said earlier on in the post, we ask you to take these candidates and form a list of the 25 most influential people from most influential to least influential, taking into account all of 2016. It is important to note that if your vote does not consist of 25 people in order from 1-25, your vote will not be counted. While the list is large, making the list itself does not take that long once you begin. We ask that you vote fairly based on the credentials of the people on the list, and we hope that this list, like in all the years past, will be a success. Best of luck to all candidates, and thank you to anyone who submits their votes. The results will be released in roughly one weeks time, but for now have fun voting.
