Before we start, I'd like to say a few things. [li]Please remember that this tournament is for you to vote whatever YOU think is the better novel.... not that of anyone else. [/li] [li]If you have never heard of one of the options PLEASE take 30 seconds to click on the link (it will take you to amazon for a view of the cover and a summary). This is also helpful for reviewing books you may have read years ago! [/li] [li]This tournament will have a new vote APPROXIMATELY every 24 hours. You will be alerted that a new group is up to vote because the title will change. For example, on a tuesday the title might be "Tournament: Best Star Wars Novel--Endor Region Round 1 " and then on wednesday it would be " Tournament: Best Star Wars Novel--Hoth Region Round 2" If you miss a vote it is not a big deal, but you cannot vote after the round has been closed. I do forget and/or get detained occassionally, though, so be patient please [/li] [li]The last rounds will have extended voting time to allow as many people to vote as possible.[/li] [li]To begin with, 2 pairs of books will be voted on for each round. This is done for time reasons. The later rounds will feature only one pair. [/li] [li]To vote, all you need to do is look at the most recent vote announcement (one of my posts, and it will have a colored bar from what category it is in for easy visual recognition) and write ONE title from each pair. If you want to vote for one of the pairs but not the other, feel free to do so! But if you vote for anything other than what is up for the vote, your post will be ignored. [/li] [li]Please feel free to engage in some discussion, especially comments as to why you voted for what. [/li] [li]If at any time you'd like to see who has been eliminated and who is still in the running, please check the 2nd post of this thread, where I will be crossing out all eliminated options.[/li] [li] As always, all the normal rules apply. If you are found to be breaking the JC rules in this thread you will receive a warning, and may be forbidden from participating in the tournament after that. No voting with socks! If you have any questions PLEASE PM me!![/li] And that is all! Enjoy droideka EDIT: tourny over!
