Seventh Touhou Popularity Contest [Orange Farm Archive]

The seventh Touhou popularity contest, done every year by thwiki, is on until the 13th. Read this post for details on how to vote for your favorite characters and music.

Seventh Touhou Popularity ContestClick here to go to the voting page~

1. Register your e-mail

First thing you need to do is look at the second section on the front page. There should be a box – enter your email into it, then click the button labeled 申請. It’ll bring you to a new page, where you have to click the button on the left to confirm. It’ll send you an e-mail with your ID in it, which you’ll need to fill out the surveys.

2. Vote for characters

On the front page, under the third section, there will be some colored boxes. The red one is the character voting page. On the top of the page, where the red 必須 is, is where you put the ID that it sent you. The second box is where you put a username, so that if you feel like commenting on any of your character choices, you can.

The five boxes under that are your character votes. The first box, under the red text, is your all-time favorite(which will receive 2 points rather than just 1). The box under the drop-down list is where you can put a comment.

Characters are separated by game they appeared in – for translations of the names, check the Touhou Wiki here. Look at a character’s profile and try to match up their Japanese name with the one in the drop-down list. >_>

3. Vote for your favorite music

On the front page, under the third section, there will be some colored boxes. The green one is where you vote for your favorite music. Again, on the top of the page, where the red 必須 is, is where you put the ID that it sent you. The second box is where you put a username, so that if you feel like commenting on any of your choices, you can.

You get seven picks, and all are worth the same amount(good thing because it’s impossible to pick just one favorite). Same deal here – it’s a little easier to spot the music you want, just because there are songs that have English text in the names, but you can go search for the song you want on the Touhou wiki. They’re separated by game again here.

4. Fill out the voter survey

This survey is just to pry into your Touhou-fandom-ness, so you don’t have to do this one. Here’s the list of stuffs anyway.

First box is ID again.

The first section is your demographic – first is gender(男性 male, 女性 female), and the second is your age.

Second section asks what Touhou games you’ve played. It goes in order, so 6, 7, 7.5, 8, 9, 9.5, 10, 10.5, 11, 12, 12.3.

The third section asks which Touhou games you’ve 1CCed. It has entries for 6, 7, 8, 9, 9.5, 10, 11, and 12. On the left you choose what difficulty you’ve cleared without continuing, and the one on the right asks if you’ve completed the extra stage(and/or phantasm stage in the case of 7). The entry for 9.5 is just how many cards you’ve captured. SPECIAL NOTES: For Touhou 9, they mean clear it without using Aya, Medicine, or Cirno. Also, for Touhou 10, games completed by exploiting the Marisa B bug don’t count.

The fourth section asks what your main is in 12 and 12.3. Again, look up the names.

Fifth section is basically asking how much you liked 12, 12.3, and Bougetsushou. Bougetsushou is the group of stories including Silent Sinner in Blue, Cage in Lunatic Runagate, and Inaba of the Moon and Inaba of the Earth. (I gave that one a good score just because of Inaba) 1 is uninteresting and 5 is interesting. The box to the right is for the comment.

The sixth section asks you where you heard about Touhou from. The options from top to bottom are:

  • * Was introduced to it by a friend
  • * Found out about it from a private website or blog
  • * Found out about it while looking for interesting shooting games
  • * Found out about the fighting games while looking for fighting games
  • * Saw it on Youtube or Niconico
  • * Found out about it from a magazine
  • * Got into it because favorite artist was drawing the characters
  • * Found out about it from playing doujin games based on it
  • * Liked a character, did some research, found out it was from Touhou
  • * Found out about it because of arrangements of the music
  • * Stumbled upon it at Comiket
  • * Saw it in a doujin shop
  • * Stumbled across it on the internet

The seventh section asks when you got into Touhou. Should be self-explanatory.

The final section asks what parts of the Touhou universe you like – you can check off three. The options are:

  • * Characters
  • * Music
  • * Arranged Music
  • * Creating derivative works
  • * Playing/reading derivative works
  • * Its fun factor as a shooting game
  • * Its fun factor as a fighting game
  • * Formal mediums other than the games (like the manga, short stories, etc)
  • * Danmaku
  • * Setting of the world
  • * The producer
  • * Its usefulness as a communication tool
  • * Other

And that’s that! Click the button on the bottom to submit it. The results should be in sometime next week.

Vote or Flandre will kill you. (Image from きゅろぱら)
