I think considering this IS still nominally a moe tournament.
There are a lot of people out there who don't find any males moe.

(The reverse however isn't true at all. Ie I don't know of anyone who finds guys moe who doesn't find at least one girl moe.)
To be honest because of this I personally would like "you have to vote for at least one female character, you don't have to vote for any male characters".

Well I'm not sure if this would be popular because 'reasons'.

Are we going to have those "what is moe" philosophical talk, again?

Not really, just want a little bit more freedom in my ballot.
Otherwise I'll just have to add some Ton-chan or something to my ballot.

I'm pretty okay with your reasoning on your prev post, exec
that's why I don't reply it. (After all, freedom of rant speech.)
But I think Ash's reasoning is pretty... weighted to "one side of the gender". It's an assumption that puts aside some part of the whole otaku community.
Since I'm such a delusional baka, I just can't ignore it completely. Do forgive me if I can't restrict myself.

Well I personally don't know of any girls who only find guys moe (and definitely no guys). I'm guessing there's a 'reason' for that so I don't want to go further into it.
But who knows I might be mistaken and such a person actually exists.

Correct, but the ballot was divided into 3 or 4 parts. One of which was Male division. And I totally skipped it.

Just to state that I am still active, but very busy.
The male slot seems to be mandatory and I may give it to one of the strong leads.

Just one week left until the Nomination Period begins. I wonder if we should start advertising this to other forums if it has not been done so already.

Yup, that would be very helpful ^^ SB and I had done that in Baidu as always, and are looking to do it on FB too. Help on other platforms will be wonderful!

Now that the nomination period is over, what is the estimate time that you believe you can reveal the final tally for our cast of 256 characters? I am curious mainly to check to see if we have enough time to write up as much of the character's data and bio as we possibly could. Ideally, I would like to see all of them done, but I do recall in a post a while ago that it was still in debate whether or not we are to write 128 or 256 bios.
