ISML 2014: Forum Edition - General Discussion

Post by JLoable91 » Mon Sep 08, 2014 1:24 pm

Heeerro, ISML forumers, it's that time again! Welcome to the 4th edition of the annual ISML: Forum Edition!
Last year, 32 brave souls fought bravely for the delicious Heavenly Cookie. In the end it was Shiraoky who brushed her opponents aside and took all the bishies home.
This year, with new faces emerging and old faces returning to the very same stage yet again, who will be crowned the ISML 2014: Forum Edition Champion?
Let's give it a nyaa!~

DarknessHid wrote:Uh. Hi. I know some of you, and I don't know others, but I'd like to finally introduce myself. I'm the Dark Overlord that you guys accidentally voted for. :ascii14: Some people call me Kuro. It's shorter than DarknessHid at least. I'm pretty weird, and I use a ton of emoticons while I type and sound super excited all the time I actually am excited all the time 8).
In the end, I'm just your average anime fan who came to this website to support my favorite characters but wandered into this forum by chance and befriended tons of amazing people here (:

I was hoping that my little spiel in the finals match would be good enough for a speech, but apparently not :ascii147:
Oh well... even if you already read it, I'd like to reiterate a word of congratulations to everyone who participated, whether as a contestant, a promo artist, or a voter! (:

Of course, a big round of digital applause should be given to Jello, who had to deal with all sorts of tournament drama this year (sorry ;u; I feel like a lot of it was due to my matches ;-;) but managed to run a successful tournament! Those posters were so gorgeous ahhh~ :ascii232:

ANYWAY, I'm really thankful for all the love and support you guys showed me, and I wish next year's contestants a lot of luck for the future. Cookies for all! Huzzah!

RULES AND FAQ
SpoilerShow
I. Voting Policies and Procedures
To be able to vote, you have to be a member registered before September 1st 2014 and be considered as an active member with more than 50 official posts (except if you're a contestant).
One vote per forum member in the group stage. One vote per forum member per round in the elimination stage
Forum members found creating multiple accounts for the purpose of voting will have all their votes invalidated
If you haven't vote at least once in the group stage/play-offs, you can't just start voting in the knock-out phase. So if your first+second tournament votes are in the knock-out phase, those won't count.
Voters may request to change their vote via PM to JLoable91 (if cast by error) although this request might not always be granted
NOMINATION PERIOD: OLD INFORMATION AND RULES:
SpoilerShow
Basically it's like the real ISML, the forum members will nominate other members to participate in this tournament. There are some rules you'll have to follow though if you want to turn in a nomination ballot. Please look at them first (listed below).
To nominate: Send your list of five members as a PM to JLoable91
How to PMShow

Note: These members are not eligible for the tournament, so please do not include them in your list!:
  • 01) Shiraoky (Champion 2013)
    02) Alexander (Dropped out)
    03) JLoable91
    04) hinakatbklyn (Dropped out)

    If you don't want to participate in the tournament yourself, you may pm me about it. You can still vote if you don't participate of course.
To nominate members for the tournament please follow these rules:
  • 1. (Attention!) The Nomination Period will last for an arbitrary length of time. The date will be given soon.
    2. Each eligible forum member may nominate up to five (5) eligible contestants via PM to JLoable91
    3. Eligible forum members are those who are believed to be active and who have registered prior to September 1st, 2014
    4. You may nominate yourself but if so, please put yourself on top of the list
    5. Nominated contestants must be unique
    6. Please use the official forum names instead of nicknames on your list to avoid confusion (e.g.: shiraoky, not Shira-tan)
    7. You may always change your list by posting a new PM. Only your last PM (with a list) will count.
    8. Invalid nominations will be discarded individually and will not void the entire ballot unless the maximum limit of five (5) is breached
    9. At the end of the Nomination Period, the contestants with the most nominations will move on to the Group Stage. The amount of contestants for the group stage will be determined after the nomination period ends
    10. There are no auto-qualified contestants anymore

I've been so far out of life that I don't even know that I know anyone anymore :(, so I'm going to abstain my nominations.

Nah. The reboot of Yozakura (Hana no Uta) makes a joke of the character designs. The original adaptation was a million times better.

The reboot is actually truer to the manga IMO, the writer actually commented on the characters being changed somewhat for the original anime. All of the characters have dark pasts, that's why they're able to joke so easily in the now.
