I'm with the monday lot as well, seems a bit harsh to exclude the workaday whores from being able to cast their votes just because they are spending their hard-earned cash on cider and prozzies come friday nights.

I think it should be.  If we have midday on Saturday as closing time for the match, and then midday Monday closing for the voting, it's a damn sight fairer on those 'whores who can only log on from work.  ccab, sweetie, get over yourself and accept the wishes of the masses!  For then you will be some kind of god, or something.  Maybe.

I have taken your comments on board and will make my ruling on this matter tomorrow morning at about 11.59am.

Can we have a confirmation of a Glastonbury moratorium?

Things will get rather fucked up if people are expected to be playing between Thursday and Sunday.

For me anyway.

::::::::::: the EXTENSION you all want ::::::::::::::::

Since many players have requested it, there'll be an extension of 2 days to this first deadline. The purpose of this is to allow working whores an opportunity to vote. Voting in all matches will end on Monday lunchtime at 12pm.

I'm dubious that these two days will have any real effect on the voting. Working whores have already had a couple of days to vote on several matches without showing much interest. But we'll see.

Votes will be counted on Monday at 12pm and 7 whores will be eliminated. Benny J Fish and CPTWhite have already retired, the other 5 will be the losers who've tallied fewest votes. The draw will follow and the 2nd round begin immediately.

For glastonburygoers, you can have some flexibility with your matches - you'll have to catch up separately.

May I suggest that after round one is finished the round one threads be moved to one thread or locked so they sink and don't interfere with the second round threads, otherwise we may not see the wood for the trees.

Good call on the MATCH deadline rather than the voting deadline Cerys, there is a definite need to draw a line in the sand as far as monging time is concerned.  I'm not an anarchist.

That's your lot for the first round. I'll post the draw in this thread sometime in the next half an hour depending on the time it takes to count these votes.

*grumble grumble*

My match, with the lowest vote turnout, means I don't even make it through as a loser, not my fault, Frinky's fault, and he used mook's mong in a shot, didn't want to play anyway, robbed, etc etc.

Well... (maybe I shouldn't be telling you this) - technically you can have him kicked out if you insist. Stragglers were only to be waited on with mutual consent. If you're feeling vengeful....

round one tactics for next year,

1. put your name down at the end and if you are lucky you will have no one to play and receive a buy into the next round.

2. play someone who isn't going to show up or can't be arsed or is too busy, pot luck as to whether you get one of these golden tickets.

3. delay your final shot until the last day and almost guarantee that whoever loses won't have enough votes to qualify as a highest scoring loser.

apart from that it's going swimmingly :)

Would now be the right time to throw a MacEnroe tantrum and hurl my copy of Photoshop 7.0 at the umpire...?

No?

As you were, then....

You know full well it's spelt 'bye' don't you?  You're just subtly implying that some sort of money-o-chango action went on, aren't you?

Paint Shop Pro 7. Now that is where it's at. Oh yes, monging on a shoestring, that's my motto. And look where it gets me.

Me, bitter?

I used The Gimp 1.2.  It works for me, does mostly the same things that Photoshop does, mostly in the same way, but is much cheaper.
