TSM Poster Tournament 2008: Nomination Space

Recommended Posts

Guest My Pal, the Tortoise

oookay. I know we're about six weeks ahead of schedule, but since there hasn't been a hell of a lot going on lately, I figured now's as good a time as any to run the--is it seventh already?--TSM Poster of the Year tournament. The names may change (they actually really don't), the calendar may turn, but we've always been awesome at celebrating ourselves, and I'm sure we can make it through another one of these without too much grievous mental anguish from all parties involved.

 

On the advice/demand of many of last year's participants, I have a few rule changes in mind for all this nonsense:

 

1. Voting and explaining your vote is supposed to be the fun of this exercise. Abstentions are not votes, and no votes are no fun, so let's avoid doing that. If you absolutely have to recuse yourself from voting in the rounds of 64, 32, or 16, okay fine you can do it like ONCE per round because there's always that one bracket with two drooling retards that makes you shudder at the prospect of having to prefer one over the other. From the quarterfinals on out, you're only voting for 4/2/1 guys, so surely you can muster a preference at that juncture. If you can't, don't bother; it won't get counted. This is in response to some complaints about ballots that only had one or two names on them. Just ruins the fun, I guess.

 

2. No gimmick accounts. Like pornography, we know them when we see them, and I'll throw their votes out. There were some concerns about voting with multiple accounts last year, but with the iron fist of the Mole/Mike Administration, this shouldn't even be a concern for me! :)

 

3. You should have been posting here within the last three months to cast a ballot. I think VX and I fielded some complaints about some old favorites and new friends emerging solely for this silly game. Like with the no-gimmicks rule, if you're not at least a semi-regular at this shitty board, this isn't the right place for you to be.

 

4. No board-specific regions this year. Sorry, DrVenkman, but you and I both know you can make it to the final four on your own merit now.

 

I think that pretty much covers all the requests I've gotten about this year's thing. So, nominations. Let's do it like this. Pick up to ten posters you like. Don't fret about repeats; I'll use those to seed. Just gimme your ten. Don't write justifications for these, just give me lists and save justifications for the actual "fun." This is the dull procedural phase of the tournament. Also, I don't think I want to be in it this year unless I'm overwhelmingly in demand, which I'm not. I'll take nominations until, say, Sunday, or earlier/later depending on traffic. If you guys can't give me 64 names I'll just start picking the rest myself, but I think we got 64 through nominations in previous years with names to spare.

 

I've never run this before. It's always been Chave, Sandy, and Leo, so I dunno what to do now. Do I say "let the nominations...begin!" or something? Let the nominations begin!

1. Incandenza

2. Bigolsmitty

3. Pbone

4. Agent of Oblivion

5. Edwin Macphisto

6. Dr Venkam

7. Socksquatch

8. Enigma

9. Matt Young

10. Carlito Brigante's Torn Condom

 

I should clarify: these were in no specific order. Enigma is only on my list for "I smell a little bit of gay around here". Socksquatch's sense of smell helped secure his spot on the list as well.

 

Edit: I would have filled out nicely on this list.

5. SOCKSQUATCH

6. Edwin Macphisto

7. Black Lushus

You can't vote for yourself I assume. But somebody's got to show some King Kamala a little bit of love. I'll be happy just to be in the tournament, even if I end up as first round cannon fodder.

I see myself going the Bart Simpson route of nobody voting for me because they just assume I'll win. Don't make that mistake, TSM. Milky needs you.

 

I will also nominate:

 

1. King Kamala Classic

2. Man of 104 Friends

3. Scroby

4. Timmy8271

5. All of the members of the secret board for jerks

6. Leena.

 

Actually, I'm shooting myself in the foot because I like everyone. Like, when I was typing that, I saw Cena's Writer mentioned me as well. And hey, I like Cena's Writer! I love you all, TSM!

I can still do my 10 (not counting the potentially necessarily fleshing out)

 

King Kamala Classic (needs a non-wrestling name in our brave new world)

Slayer

Kotz

CanadianGuitarist

Nightwing

Pbone

Snuffbox

Smues

Kinetic

Gary Floyd

 

For anyone else who still wants to list people, don't use numbers. makes it easier for me to copypaste into Excel.

 

EDIT: fleshing out won't be necessary, since we're at 63 names. Keep nominating, though. Everyone tied for one nomination will be as randomly selected as the circumstances allow. 27 folks are locked in. 26 minus myself. What did I tell youse guys.

Kotz doesn't even post here anymore. I'd be ok with losing to Slayer, but nobody else even slightly deserves it. Don't you remember the effort I put in to single-handedly saving the Chocolate Socket?

 

edit: Oh, and Leena. I'm cool with losing to her too.

Leena doesn't even post here anymore except for like 15 minutes till Al bans her

 

No guarantee that I even put the spoonster in since he has but one vote. I just remember he told me he wanted to be in. I hope he at least drops by to vote, though. His justifications are always really good.

 

EDIT: Whoops, miscounted a ballot. 59 names are in, not 63. Carry on.

Impatience is unbecoming of champions

 

They don't need my help: Slayer

This is the same mentality that resulted in my losing to Robert Barron last year

 

We must not trap ourselves in such complacency!

You would have been left out anyway.

 

And I forgot about Carnival. Ethan, where the fuck have you been?
