This is the fourth year of our site's existence, and there hasn't yet been a large-scale popularity contest where you get to vote for whomever you want, under whatever reasoning you want, in the hopes of crowning one member with a largely-meaningless title. Because every site needs to do that, right?

Well, in any case, this one is.

TOURNAMENT OVER--Shadow Jacky and mike89 TIED


Click for full-size version

Sixteen of us are Evil Fascists, living under and fully subservient to His Ultimate Highness George W. the One-and-a-Halfth, wanting nothing less than his ultimate conquest of all that is before us. Sixteen of us are Evil Terrorists, gathering from all over, but united by a common goal of complete destruction of this crazy ruler, and who cares about any collateral damage that goes down with him? They're probably just mindless followers to begin with.

When the forces of evil battle each other, who comes out on top?

Match History:
1. Quartz def. Psyknux, 10-9
2. SuperSonic101 def. Douglas, 9-7
3. mike89 def. shadowgamer196, 11-1
4. PsyBorg def. SadisticMystic, 10-9
5. gamersince93 def. Spinballwizard, 12-10
6. RPGnutter def. P.P.A., 17-4
7. maggot def. Marth, 11-11 (NOTE: in order to keep the voting automatic and on schedule, the underdog always wins in case of a tie, as though they were spotted half a point)
8. eredani def. Zeupar, 12-6
9. Rolken def. Paragod, 19-4
10. CherryMay def. knuckles_sonic8, 14-2
11. Stefan def. stanski, 9-8

My assistant will clear some things up in the next post.

This contest will play out over the 31 days of July, with each match starting and ending at 00:00 GMT.
Western US: 5:00 PM
Eastern US: 8:00 PM
UK: 1:00 AM
Western continental Europe: 2:00 AM
Eastern Australia: 10:00 AM
If you live elsewhere, you should be able to figure out the equivalent time from one of these reference points.

The voting process will take place completely over IRC, and I'm responsible for keeping track of the votes and matches automatically.

If you're not aware, we have a system in place now whereby I can recognize links between TSC accounts and IRC names even though they're on entirely separate servers.  To start, go to the user settings page and give yourself a registration password.  Next, get on IRC, make sure you're using a name that's registered and identified with NickServ, and use the command /msg CodeGirl register <name> <passcode>, where <name> is the TSC name you want to link to and <passcode> is the code you entered on the aforementioned page.  From this point on, as long as you're on IRC and identified to the nick you issued the command from, I know who you are.  This voting procedure is one such application of linked names; hopefully we'll think of more uses for integration in the future.

To vote, make sure you know which two members are up for the day's match (it'll be on that table, and probably also in the IRC topic; additionally I announce the current scores every hour on the hour while a match is running), figure out who you want to vote for, then use the command /msg CodeGirl vote <name> where <name> is your desired vote.  There's no single criterion you have to base your vote on; it's up to you to decide who to vote for and why.

You can vote once per day.  It's possible to assign multiple IRC nicks to the same TSC name, but the once-per-day restriction is assigned at the TSC name level.  Additionally, there will be restrictions so that you can't register dozens of TSC names at the last minute and expect to make eligible voters out of them.

^yea well.. wanna fight rolken? lol

oh well.. every other person would beat me anyway since i havent had much of a chance to repair my status so I guess really it doesnt make much of a difference. might as well get rid of me quickly in R1 XD

I just noticed (16) is the biggest number you can have.. w00t! now I feel special.

but anyway surreal irc network K-Lined me so I cant vote in chat so I will say my votes here.

Shadow Jacky- cuz hes just cool in general
Nintendan same
Marth same
F-Man- cuz hes my sonic god AND a cool guy, duh
Eredani -same
RPG - same

For the rest I cant cant vote because I like them both equally, and cant think of any reason to vote for one instead of the other so I wont. I hope voting for just a few is allowed.

oh yeah are you gunna have like a little commentary after each match explaining why each player won and lost?

Sitewide rankings are for deciding who has the best stat submissions (sometimes influenced by who has the greatest number).  This lets you decide who you want to vote for using whatever reasoning you'd like; a popularity contest, so to speak.

You mean round 2 where I'll pwn you all kinds of hard amirite (or if SS101 is more 1337 than me, he's got to be more 1337 than RPG so same applies).

Tough ones for me to decide on are stanski/Stefan, sonicam/magnum12, Marth/maggot and SprintGod/CosmicFalcon I think - pretty sure how I'm going to vote on all the others.  Also what is Taco doing seeded 15, he's my Jeebus ffs!

Stefan: make like I am against RPG and start the smear campaign.  Here's a good example: "Voting for RPG gives you herpes.  Vote douglas and keep your future STD-free!".
This topic has now been officially won by me.  Never mind, you might do better next time!

Two questions:
1:  I don't see Duke RPG ANYWHERE on that.  How would people vote for him?
2:  Why is Thorn nowhere on this?  I thought he would be in this (I would have voted for him).  Or is he High and Mighty Judge like with everything else? XD

Bummer, though - I'm not on IRC, and it probably runs WAY too slow on the ol' dial-up.
And voting for mike makes your time stats go higher.

Man I'll be surprised if I get through Thorn. Though I'd take an underdog victory. After all, the "lucky 13" almost always gets at least one upset in the NCAA Tournament. >_>

But I could take SJ or SL. And then die to Rolken because he'll threaten BANHAMMER to any naysayers.

Also I'm pretty sure it was mentioned elsewhere but how was seeding done?

(Edit: Does anyone find Psyknux vs. Quartz ironic?)

Holy cow. That explains a LOT. And, I'm beginning to notice a trend - everyone is scared to match against Rolken.  Considering this was probably his idea in the first place....

Yeah, but everyone knows that SM is Rolken's primary flunky.  And yeah, his word is law, but he has yet to command anyone to actually vote for him.  I call loophole.

Rolken has mentioned in the chatroom that he finds this tourney particularly dumb and didn't even look in the original topic so judging from that I'd say this wasn't his idea

I think it's a bit stupid that the people with the least GAV are pitted against the one with the most. That way it's pretty obvious who wins the first matches. Wouldn't it have been better if it was for example 1st vs. 2nd, 3rd vs. 4th and so on?
