    THE RULES!

    * Please remember that this tournament is for you to vote using your opinions not that of anyone else.


    * If you have never heard of one of the options PLEASE take 30 seconds to click on the link (it will take you to wikipedia) where you can find some sort of description.


    * 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. I do forget and/or get detained occasionally, though, so be patient if the is some gaps in the updating.


    * To begin with, 4 pairs of video game characters will be voted on for each round. This is done for time reasons. The later rounds will feature only two pairs, and then later, one pair at a time.


    * 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 pick one video game character 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.


    * Please feel free to engage in some discussion, especially comments as to why you voted for what. This makes tournaments so much more interesting!


    * If at any time you'd like to see what has been eliminated and what is still in the running, please check the 2nd post of this thread, where I will be highlighting in red all eliminated video game characters.


    * 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! This has happened before. If you get caught, you will not be allowed to participate in the rest of the tournament. If you have any questions PLEASE PM me!!


    * We had a lot of nominations to play with, so I had to make some cuts. If anyone has any queries about this, feel free to PM me, but please remember that my decision is final and try not to derail this thread into what video game character should have made the list.

    I had the Dog from Duck Hunt as my sleeper, but I think Abstain might clean up.

    I hope that joke is made every time these tournaments are held.
