ISML 2016 Nominations

Post by smartboyhw » Sat May 21, 2016 5:22 am

Welcome to the nomination phase of International Saimoe League 2016! This is a tutorial detailing the steps required for you to submit your nominations! Feel free to post your submitted nominations here as well!

NOMINATION PERIOD: 2016-05-22 00:13 UTC (due to technical issues)- 2016-06-12 00:00 UTC
LATE NOMINATIONS ARE NOT ACCEPTED.


Update (22/5/2016 0257 UTC)

1. We won't extend the nomination end time since it's 3 weeks long anyway.

2. The minimum amount of characters is 5, not 3, but if you voted before we changed it in the nomination form, your ballot is still valid.

3. There has been confusion (mainly outside forums) about seasonal nominations, so we added a clause.

"In particular, please note that male characters whose first appearance is after 31 December, 2015 are not eligible. All other characters can be nominated and will be placed in appropriate bracket by the staff."


Step 1: Go to this URL to access the voting page: http://www.internationalsaimoe.com/voting/ You should see a page that looks like this:

Image

Step 2: Select your desired language using the buttons at the top of the nomination page.

Image

Available languages include: English, Spanish, French, German, Russian, Bahasa, Malay, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Thai, Korean, Viet, Japanese.

For this demonstration, we shall be using English.

Step 3: Read the nomination rules and guidelines.

Image

The rules and guidelines are as follows:
ISML 2016 Nominations Rules and GuidelinesShow
You may nominate up to eighteen (18) characters.
You must nominate at least three (3) eligible characters.
At least three (3) eligible anime franchises must be represented in your ballot.
You cannot nominate more than three (3) characters from a single anime franchise.
You must include at least one male and one female character.
All nominations have equal weight. There is no ranking of nominations.
You may submit your nomination only once. You cannot submit a partial ballot and continue it later.
Ballots that do not follow these rules will be discarded entirely.
Do note that you have to nominate for ALL the following competitions using the same nomination form:
Main Tournament Female Division
Main Tournament Male Division
Winter Seasonal Tournament
Spring Seasonal Tournament
No repeated submissions to submit for different competitions will be entertained.


Step 4: Check the list of characters that cannot be nominated.

Image

The list of characters that cannot be nominated are as follows:
List of characters that cannot be nominatedShow
No entry to Main Tourmanent due to direct entry into 2017 Tournament of Champions
Fate Testarossa (Mahō Shōjo Lyrical Nanoha)
Katsura Hinagiku (Hayate no Gotoku)
Akiyama Mio (K-ON!)
Misaka Mikoto (Toaru Majutsu no Index)
Tachibana Kanade (Tenshi) (Angel Beats!)

Itsuka Kotori (Date A Live)
Chitanda Eru (Hyōka)
Lelouch Lamperouge (Code Geass)
Kirigaya Kazuto (Sword Art Online)
Oreki Hōtarō (Hyōka)
Kinoshita Hideyoshi (Baka to Test to Shōkanjū)

Doma Umaru (Himōto! Umaru-chan)
Tomori Nao (Charlotte)
Isshiki Iroha (OreGairu)
Nase Mitsuki (Kyōkai no Kanata)
Kujō Sakurako (Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru)
Step 5: Fill in your nominations in the boxes provided.
Image

Some guidelines when filling in your nominations:
1. Order of the characters in your nomination ballot does NOT matter. All nominations have the same weighting.
2. The order of the name of the character does NOT matter. "Katsura Hinagiku" is the same as "Hinagiku Katsura" (Please note that you cannot nominate Hinagiku).
3. Please give the full name and series of the character so we know who exactly you are nominating.
4. You do NOT have to use macrons over the vowels (e.g. ō and ū); "ou" and "uu" are sufficient.
5. Any language is accepted, but we highly prefer you write them in romaji (English).

A sample ballot is shown here:

Image

Please note that this ballot does not represent the stance of the author of this thread nor any of the ISML staff members. It is for demonstrative purposes only.

Step 6: Answer a simple survey concerning your gender and your age. Feel free to abstain if you desire.

Image

Step 7: Answer a simple algebra question to verify that you are truly a human and not a bot. Fill in your answer (a. k. a. the correct value of x) in the box next to "x = ".

Image

In this case, the answer is 2.

If you don't know how answer, feel free to press the "... or type your equation into this calculator!", which brings you to WolframAlpha where you can enter the equation shown and get the answer automatically.

Step 8: Submit your ballot by clicking "Submit Nomination". Please note that you should have loaded the page for 180 seconds (3 minutes) before you can submit your ballot.

Image

If anything goes wrong in the process, you can press "Reset form" to start everything from scratch. You CANNOT change your ballot after you have submitted it.

Step 9: If you see a new page listing all your nominations and "Thank you! Your nomination has been accepted!", then you're done!

Image

If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail us at [email protected] or leave your questions here! The staff are very willing to assist you.

Thank you for your nominations and we hope that you have a fun time with ISML!

This is what happens when you don't even plan your nominations ahead of time. Whatever.

I'm a little surprised by how many males I wanted to nominate compared to last year. I guess the problem was that I wasn't watching enough shounen before? :b
