cross-posted from match thread
lads, i think I'm going to have to drop out. i've recently started a new job and am lodging at a friend's place for the foreseeable future, with no access to my pc. i'd be very happy for zomgmouse to take my place, or whoever the boss deems most deserving of doing so.

sorry for being a let down lawrence. this whole job thing happened v quick and i forgot to take niche comedy messageboard digital image manipulation contests into consideration

Ok, no problem. I personally think that the fairest thing to do would be to give the spot to the highest-scoring loser at this point, since the next round has begun.

Edit: actually, it might be fairer for people to vote on it.

Um...

Yeah, I know what we'll do:

Everyone please vote in this thread on which of the losers of the last round you think should replace kittens in the semifinals. zomgmouse is only one vote behind the others, so I'll include him as well. Seems like the fairest way to resolve it.

You can see their shots in these threads here:

Spoon of Ploff
Absorb the anus burn
zomgmouse
Dr Trouser


Please vote for ONE player. At 10am BST tomorrow, I'll tally the scores and the highest scorer will have first refusal on kittens' spot.

While I'm not going to vote, it makes sense to me that either the highest scoring loser go through, or else kittens' opponent in the quarter finals.  Which would be zomgmouse.  Yikes.

Yeah, if there had been an outright HSL, they would have been offered the spot, but given we've got three players tied and one just one vote behind, I thought the simplest and fairest way to resolve it was with a vote-off.

I was going to go by which match attracted most votes as a way of determining which HSL got the spot, but it just seemed a little too arbitrary - and it might have seemed to some like I was rewarding someone for their opponent getting more votes.

oh it has to be Spoon of Ploff as I think we could induce a mental breakdown and think of the creativity that would flood out!

Thanks for voting, but Frazer was actually eliminated in the previous round. The choice is between Spoon of Ploff, Absorb the anus burn, Dr Trouser and zomgmouse.

Spoon of Ploff has won the vote, so he can replace kittens if he likes. Just let us know to confirm as soon as you can, and then Cerys can repost her serve in a new thread. Thanks.
