Five days gives me enough time to write up some new material without having to worry about someone beating me to the punch so... I'm gonna go with five days.

A five-day option allows more time for readers to ponder on, rate, and vote on a match. However, the three-day option would allow the lower-ranked users to potentially build their F.P.A.'s up more quickly.
So, I'm on the fence here.

I'm kind of on the fence, but I'd like to point out something here. If the match is started on a Monday, it'll still end before the weekend. Just saiyin. The only way to have them stay up long enough to last through the weekend, would be to extend the time they're up to a week.
I like the 5-day option, mainly because I can't really get on too much during the week, and by the weekend, the fights are already down
Though, like DSkillz said, the longer the matches stay up, the longer it will take for new members to rank up. And if they want to do a 3x3 match, they'll be waiting awhile, and may even lose interest before they get there.

Impartial opinion is to consider what would be best for CBUB and that would be the 3 day turnaround. More chance of attracting new users, quicker progression via FPA and quicker turnaround of favourite characters. Vote: 3 days!

However, from a writing point of view, I can see both good and bad things about it, It would allow the writers a longer time to think up the next match in an arc, if they have one in mind, however they would progress slower through the FPA system.
In the end, I think the main reason why I'm voting for the 5 day model, is because if the various users need to wait 5 days for their points to return to them, hopefully they will think a bit more about the matches they submit, and thus the quality of the matches will rise.

Yeah, but I can see fights that started at any time past Monday. I never said it was perfect.

I say 5-days

If this poll closes at a tie, a compromise may have to be made.

The points it takes to buy off an FPA will still return after three days, though.

Fox, I had a thought. Would it be possible for the match creator to choose how long they'd like to have the match run until? Like a new match creating option per say.
Everything is possible! But today's minor update was probably the last I will be doing on the CBUB website for awhile - excluding any required bug fix.

Best of both worlds!

And next time, check the actual date of the last post to make sure the topic isn't old. EF's old thread necro bug is apparently back in effect.
