Nomination Results Released

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

Nomination results for ISML 2012 are now on the main page! (Later onwards, they will be archived here.) Congratualations to the girls who advance to the Preliminary Period. The playing field is slightly larger than last year’s, and the introduction of the two Divisions in 2012 will certainly make things interesting!

Reported totals are exact for characters with at least 30 nominations. Below that, we expect a margin of error of 1 or 2. We do not have plans to release names who recorded fewer than 25 nominations.

Thanks to all our voters for participating and for your patience while we tallied the results. Voting will begin on February 12 with the start of the Preliminary Period. Until then, we make preparations with not only the new tournament format but also with graphics for all of our Candidates. If you would like to help us out, please join us on the forum!

Groupings for Prelim, Phase I, will be released soon. Look forward to another great ISML season!

Last day of nominations

Saturday, January 7th, 2012

Today is the last day to submit your nominations for ISML 2012.

The Nomination Period will end at 0000 GMT on January 8. Please note that this time is in GMT. This means it may still be January 7 in your local time zone when the polls close.

We have received a record number of nominations this year and are very pleased with the great turnout! This is looking to be another excellent year for ISML. When nominations end, we will count all valid submissions and process the results. Expected time is 2 to 3 days until the announcement of the winners. We will admit 72 characters into the Nova Division and 72 into the Stella Division.

Thank you for your participation in ISML!

Nominations ongoing

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

The ISML 2012 Nomination Period is still open. Visit the Voting Page to submit your picks!

A little more than three days remain, so if you have not nominated yet, there’s still plenty of time to think things over and have a full set of 12 names. If you can’t get to 12, that’s okay, but you never know who you might forget. Talk it over with your friends and communities to make sure that your best girls get representation in the next phase!

When possible, please give the character’s full name and the series’ full title. This will speed up our processing and prevent accidents.

2012 Nominations Are Open

Sunday, January 1st, 2012

Happy New Year! The start of 2012 means that the Nomination Period for ISML 2012 has begun.

You have seven days to think about your nominations, so take your time and choose carefully! You may submit a nomination form only one time. You cannot fill it out partially and resume it later; all names must be submitted at once.

Remember that the 24 pictured characters are auto-qualified to the Preliminaries, so you do not need to nominate these girls.

When you are ready, visit the Voting Page to submit your nomination!

Spread the news, and tell your friends. There are many people who have more than 12 names in mind, so if your list is shorter than 12, consider looking into discussions on our forum or your local communities for names you may have overlooked.

Good luck to all our competitors! Remember that the girls chosen here will be the ones you’ll see for the rest of the year!
