    You must've missed that one sadly. We did sequel, then original, then prequel.

    Hello there,

    Your Friendly Neighbourhood Statistician is here with some number crunching. I was holding out hope against all you traitors who voted for Obi-Wan. Again. Anyways. Let Qui-Gons be bygones. (tm)

    There were some interesting changes to previous popularity contests (finally) in terms of, well, popularity. Obi-Wan was not in the top in rounds. He didn't even make top 10 in Round 1:
    Yoda
    Darth Maul
    Captain Panaka
    Aayla Secura
    Sabe
    Captain Typhoo
    Chewbacca
    Count Dooku
    General Grievous
    Commander Bacara

    Or Round 2:
    Darth Maul
    Yoda
    Anakin Skywalker
    Count Dooku
    Darth Sidious
    Qui-Gon Jinn
    Aayla Secura
    Sebulba
    Jango Fett
    Padme Amidala

    Or Round 3:
    Darth Maul
    Yoda
    Anakin Skywalker
    Count Dooku
    Darth Sidious
    Chewbacca
    Padme Amidala
    Commander Cody
    Kit Fisto

    Round 3 popularity didn't make 10 characters as #10 was a character that had more votes altogether than No 10 (no, not Downing Street).

    In Round 4, Darth Sidious made it to the top for the first time:
    Darth Sidious
    Darth Maul
    Yoda
    Anakin Skywalker
    Count Dooku
    Padme Amidala
    Obi-Wan Kenobi
    General Grievous
    Chewbacca
    Commander Cody

    And Round 5 as well, which was an extremely short list. Turns out if people voted consistently we'd have a very different picture at the top:
    Darth Sidious
    Yoda
    Anakin Skywalker
    Count Dooku
    Obi-Wan Kenobi

    And the reality is that overall Darth Sidious gathered 55 votes and Obi only 54. Here are the top 10 characters based on number of votes over 6 rounds

    Darth Sidious 55 - 6 rounds
    Obi-Wan Kenobi 54 - 6 rounds
    Yoda 49 - 6 rounds
    Anakin Skywalker 39 - 5 rounds
    Qui-Gon Jinn 38 - 6 rounds
    Count Dooku 37 - 5 rounds
    Darth Maul 35 - 4 rounds
    Padme Amidala 34 - 5 rounds
    General Grievous 29 - 5 rounds
    Chewbacca 25 - 4 rounds

    And here are the top 10 characters based on average votes per round:
    (character, total score, rounds, average score)
    Darth Maul 35, 4, 8.75
    Darth Sidious 55, 6, 7.86
    Anakin Skywalker 39, 5, 7.80
    Obi-Wan Kenobi 54, 6, 7.71
    Count Dooku 37, 5, 7.40
    Yoda 49, 6, 7.00
    Padme Amidala 34, 5, 6.80
    Commander Bacara 13, 2, 6.50
    Captain Panaka 13, 2, 6.50
    Qui-Gon Jinn 38, 6, 6.33

    It was also interesting to see the participation increasing as the competition got into later stages:
    Row Labels Sum of Score Count of Character Score/Character

    Round, Sum of Score, Characters, Avg Score/character
    1: 428, 100, 4.3
    2: 230, 50, 4.6
    3: 144, 28, 5.1
    4: 84, 14, 4.7
    5: 41, 8, 5.1
    6: 48, 8, 6.0

    A grand total of 975 votes were cast.

    Well done @Jordan1Kenobi for hosting another contest!

    Also done that. We’ve done Sequels, Originals, Prequels, The Clone Wars, Rebels, Jedi, Heroes vs. Villains, all canon characters (though that was a while ago and a lot has changed since then), and planets.

    I have a few ideas I’m deciding between currently.

    Ok so my idea is the biggest popularity contest we've ever done. There'd be over 1,200 battles but only 100 characters. Even at 10 matches a day it'd take over 100 days to complete.

    I'd take the 100 most popular / most important characters and have them battle every single contestant, so we'd literally be able to see who is the most popular. For example, by the end Obi-Wan may have won 80/100 matches, Han may have won 75/100 matches and Ahsoka may have won 70/100 matches, etc, etc, etc... So we can accurately put every single character in a ranked order.

    Would this be something you'd all be interested in? I'd like to try and get more than 10 votes per match (20 would be ideal), so would need a bunch of committed voters, so that this ranking could be used for many years to come.
