The first round is over, somehow.

Thanks everyone for playing, and to those to didn't make it to the next round never mind. There are no real losers in WimbleWrong.

The next round draw will be posted tomorrow. The names in the hat will be:

Just a thought but would it perhaps be worth a shot to replace the "highest-scoring loser" rule with a "smallest margin loser" type situation instead? I feel like sometimes voting quantities can oscillate which might make it unfair to future scoring, but if there's a closer match then that seems more likely to indicate preference etc. Dunno if that makes sense but thought I'd voice it anyway.

^ I agree. My match was very close and I should be brought back in so that I can go away to Supersonic for the weekend and keep you all waiting until Tuesday afternoon for my shot. Come on, give the people what I want!

What you have described in the Desolation Quest method of choosing the least worst loser. I would have used that here but you saw how the moaning minis and michaels started kicking off when I tried to enforce Rule #3. Imagine if I tried enforcing a 'smallest margin loser' rule..? ''ooooh, oooooh, that's not how selectiveMemory did it ooooh oooooh, that's not how we do things in Wimbledon Wrong oooooohh." Not worth the hassle mate, plus as Nags said it would mean he goes through and no one wants to see that happen.

This is because I voted for Nags, isn’t it?

Listen, Sploff - your beef is with me. Leave the little ones out of it.

For what it’s worth I think of myself as a vile beast of wanton proportions and I should not be given a second chance. Having a second chance despite my atrocities is my kink and you’d only be strengthening my sexual powers by doing so. Think about that before making your choice.
