ISML Forum Saimoe 2018

Welcome to the 8th annual ISML Forum Saimoe tournament!
Last year, 32 contestants fought bravely for the Heavenly Cookie. In the end, Grish took home the esteemed dessert~
This year, with new faces emerging and old faces returning to the stage yet again, who will be crowned the next ISML Forum Saimoe champion?

Forum members will nominate other members to participate in this tournament. To turn in a nomination ballot, please follow the rules listed below.

Please note that if you have registered for the forum on 1 September 2018 or later, or never interacted in ISML community by that date, you are not eligible to vote or nominate in the tournament.

When was it again? 2015, wasn't it? It was the first time I decided to jump out of that jungle of a voter to become the regular of the forum. Why? 'cause it looked fun, of course! There was one problem, though: my English level is that of a elementary student. Great, now what, genius? ... Simple, join the games! Through the competitions, I should get to know everyone better and vice versa, or so I believed. And like staying true to that ideal, I've been actively participating in every single game/event the forumers have hosted ever since: Prediction, Fantasy, Different Story, Karaoke, Drawing, Cards.... to even the infamous H&H, with an obsessive level no less!

And also because of that obsessiveness, there were some moments of regret. But the moments to remember were many! I got to know so many new people: some beautifully artistic, some crazily dedicated and hardworking, some surprisingly in sync, some awfully reliable and many just awesomely fun! But the most precious thing above that is ... how you guys think i'm someone worth talking to, someone worth sharing all the fun and probably someone worth... supporting for. And for that, I don't have anything as incredible to say beside... thank you... ;;

ISML is the longest online community I've ever been with, the to the point I even wonder if it has become a part of my own life. That's why, I don't think I'm parting with it anytime soon. So please, bear with this no good tanuki for a little longer~ :3

BRACKET COMPLETE!

NominationShow
To nominate: Send your list of up to seven members as a PM to houreki

Nomination rules:
  • 1. The Nomination Period will last until September 14 2018, 9:00pm GMT -6.
    2. Each eligible forum member may nominate up to seven (7) eligible contestants via PM to houreki.
    3. Eligible forum members are those who have at least 10 official posts and who have registered prior to September 1st, 2018.
    4. Members who have been banned from the forum are not eligible to be nominated.
    5. You may nominate yourself.
    6. You may not nominate a single contestant multiple times.
    7. To avoid confusion, please use the official forum names instead of nicknames on your list (e.g.: maglor not madlor or moeglor). In the case of members whose names have been changed, any official forum name they have previously used will be accepted as a valid nomination, but for clarity's sake, please try to use their current username.
    8. You may always change your list by sending a new PM. Only your last PM (with a list) will count.
    9. Invalid nominations will be discarded individually and will not void the entire ballot unless the maximum limit of seven (7) is breached.
    10. At the end of the Nomination Period, the contestants with the most nominations will move on to the Group Stage. The number of contestants for the group stage will be determined after the nomination period ends.

This training arc is too quiet for now. Let's see if some baka stop to drop out. *looks at Alex, Fuiji, Revvie, Smartie (kuki?)*

If he continues the rigging host tradition, he doesn't need to be autoqualified anyway.
