2018 Pet Tournament Nominations
  • 1.Voters may nominate at least three (3) and at most seven (7) characters that do not have a humanoid appearance and are mostly made up of living tissues.
    2. In the case where the above is ambiguous or fails to hold, such as with robots, consider whether the creature displays apparent self-will. If the answer is yes, it may be eligible. The final verdict on whether the creature possesses self-will falls on the ISML staff.
    3. At most two (2) characters from any given series or franchise may be nominated on the ballot. No character may be nominated more than once on the ballot.
    4. All nominations have equal weight.
    5. There is no ranking of nominations.
    6. Invalid nominations on a ballot will be discarded individually and will not void the ballot unless any discard results in that ballot having less than three (3) eligible characters, in which case that ballot will be voided.
    7. The Staff reserves the right to deem any character ineligible for the Pet Exhibition Tournament.
Please give us comments, post your nominations, or report any problems here.

[qoute]...characters that do not have a humanoid appearance and are mostly made up of living tissues.[/quote]
A couple of questions for clarification:

1. Is Kon (Bleach) out because it is more of a stuffed animal with that soul ball thing that grants it temporary life?
2. Is Chopper (One Piece) out because it can transform to a humanoid state?
3. Is every Pokemon allowed (including the human-like types, i.e, Machoke, Jynx, etc.)?

We have added another clause to help us better define a pet.

2. In the case where the above is ambiguous or fails to hold, such as with robots, consider whether the creature displays apparent self-will. If the answer is yes, it may be eligible. The final verdict on whether the creature possesses self-will falls on the ISML staff.

With this rule, I believe the following may be appropriate answer. Please point out any problem with my answer, as the situation can get philosophical very quickly, thus I probably won't be aware of all the issues.

1. Kon (Bleach) should be allowed, as the presence of "soul" implies good amount of self-will.
2. If the Chopper spends more time in a form that isn't humanoid-enough, compared to its humanoid state, then Chopper should be allowed. I don't fully know whether or not Chopper does, so please help me here.
3. Most Pokemon should be allowed, but do point out any type that is "too human-like". If it is "too human-like", we shouldn't consider it as a pet, though this do opens up the age-old question of "what is the essential quality of human". Let me know which cases we need to consider whether it is "too human-like".
