And so Misaka Mikoto defeated Senjōgahara Hitagi and defended her title against Tadokoro Megumi.
Great Awwnime Bracket is the only possible way for a continuation since all other brands are either dead and/or banned Misaka Mikoto.
dxprog's submissions on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/user/dxprog/submitted/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; (organizer of that Great Awwnime Bracket)

For the next year(s) we may need to add new brands... (maybe Bilibili Moe)

Due to lack of new material (bonus episode from March 2014) it's unlikely that Misaka Mikoto is eligible for Great Awwnime Bracket (2 year eligibility rule) or other saimoe tournaments.
What to do?

How about an exhibition match on ISML involving Mikoto? Can we do that?

Unfortunately, that won't count. The only "fair" option would be to introduce more more tournaments into the championship, which ultimately would mean more notification of what is what and who is where. As long as the tournament follows the guidelines of international participation and a decent voting base size, the tournament can be nominated into the tournament as an additional brand.

Do you mean this tournament (/r/Anime's Best Anime Character, 2015 edition)?

I see. A tournament for both female and male characters isn't a problem a priori. (Check the list at viewtopic.php?f=30&t=164#p2171" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;: Gokudera Hayato hold the title once during Korean Super Best Moe 2008) The male characters were dominant in the 2015 edition.
However, I'm not sure whether we should introduce a third reddit tournament (second from r/anime). It may meet the requirements, though.

Small update: The 2nd Best Character contest will start soon. Misaka Mikoto is nominated and will likely enter the main tournament.

Just in case you are interested: Misaka Mikoto is in Bracket D and got seed #46. She won her 1st round match against Alluka Zolldyck 1164 to 395 and should be the favorite until she faces Genos in round 4 (assuming no upsets).

Good news: Nominations for The Great Awwnime Bracket 2016 are running (forum thread, reddit post) and Misaka Mikoto is eligible (thanks to the last episodes of Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S in September 2013). So we can continue this project without following Best Character Contest!

Bad news again: Misaka Mikoto was nominated, but all characters from Toaru Majutsu no Index franchise are ineligible. It seems the last episode of Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S aired 4 days too early. Even her appearances in Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S: Motto Marutto Railgun (2013-11-27) and the bonus episode Daiji na Koto wa Zenbu Sentō ni Osowatta (2014-03-27) didn't help - I guess they were treated like one-off OVAs. Now that the main tournament started it's too late to object the decision. So no Misaka Mikoto in The Great Awwnime Bracket.

What to do now?

Update on 2nd Best Character contest:
Misaka Mikoto won her first 4 matches before losing to Matoi Ryūko (1109 < 1309). Matoi Ryūko lost her next match 1391 < 1621 to Hikigaya Hachiman. Hikigaya Hachiman then lost (in the Quarter Final) 1774 < 1810 to Edward Elric, who lost his next match 1859 < 1960 to Makise Kurisu. Makise Kurisu lost in the Final 1748 < 2261 to Senjōgahara Hitagi.

If we add Best Character contest to Unofficial World Saimoe Championship we would need to check the exact match date and time for Hikigaya Hachiman, Edward Elric and Makise Kurisu. (Matoi Ryūko and Senjōgahara Hitagi were not active -anymore- in ISML at that time.)

Can you inform me the exact dates on when each of those matches occurred? It would mainly be for recording purposes, but also to do a double check if and if there were potential title changes between it and ISML. Also, may I have a link to that site as well, for it could be possible that something may have happened in ISML that may correspond to 2nd Best Character as well.

OK, let's try. (I rounded the start time, for example 21:50:01 to 22:00)

Misaka Mikoto 1164 > 395 Alluka Zoldyck, Best Character Contest Round 1 Bracket D, 2016-10-12 21:00 UTC
Misaka Mikoto 1016 > 727 Kusanagi Motoko, Best Character Contest Round 2 Bracket D, 2016-10-16 22:00 UTC
Misaka Mikoto 1384 > 636 Stephanie Dola, Best Character Contest Round 3 Bracket D, 2016-10-20 22:00 UTC
Misaka Mikoto 1260 > 1253 Genos, Best Character Contest Round 4 Bracket D, 2016-10-24 22:00 UTC

Misaka Mikoto 1109 < 1309 Matoi Ryūko, Best Character Contest Round 5 Bracket D, 2016-10-28 22:00 UTC

Matoi Ryūko 1391 < 1621 Hikigaya Hachiman, Best Character Contest Round 6 Bracket D, 2016-11-01 22:00 UTC
Hikigaya Hachiman 1525 > 889 Okazaki Tomoya, ISML Diamond 5 Arena 9, 2016-11-02 15:00 UTC

Hikigaya Hachiman 1774 < 1810 Edward Elric, Best Character Contest Quarterfinals, 2016-11-02 22:00 UTC

Edward Elric 1859 < 1960 Makise Kurisu, Best Character Contest, Semifinals, 2016-11-03 22:00 UTC
(note: Edward Elric's next ISML match started 2016-11-04 15:00 UTC)

Makise Kurisu 1748 < 2261 Senjōgahara Hitagi, Best Character Contest, 2016-11-04 22:00 UTC

Links: Full Bracket of Best Character Contest (you may choose Group D and Finals for an easier overview)
submissions by ShaKing807 (used the time of his posts as start time for the matches)

There's an overlap for Hikigaya Hachiman's two matches on 2016-11-02, but I think this is OK (he won the first and lost the second). So if we add Best Character Contest Senjōgahara Hitagi would be the new Unofficial World Saimoe Champion. She should be popular enough to enter next year's ISML and Best Girl Contest, she may even win Best Girl Contest 2017.

Since Anime Saimoe Tournament and Korean Best Moe are dead and Animefans Saimoe Tournament could be dead, we may think about adding another tournament from East Asia.

This information helps a lot. At the very least, we were able to find someway to keep this title alive and not disappear into the sea of time. In addition, we know almost for certain that Hitagi will be relevant in a future tournament given the never-ending Monogatari series we are having thus far, so... this works.
