Get that thick skin in place because here we go! Round 3
Hop on over to Mike's blogs to see round 3 in action. This round lasts until June 21st at 8 pm.
On the last day the hosts will call out for extra judges to come and break ties, or in case of extra close votes to try and get a more decisive margin. In the event a tie remains, the blog host will provide the tie breaker.
The entry with the most votes for Victory moves forward to round 4 (Elite Eight!) on June 24th! Kombatants will be unable to revise their entry for the duration of the tournament.
Reminders for the Entrants:
You may comment on your own entries after voting has ended to offer thanks or congrats. Do not otherwise respond to or explain feedback.
If there is a problem with your entry, shout out to us on twitter as soon as you can. @RavenousRushing) If you don't have Twitter, you may comment on your entry telling us the mistake.
Also, we tried our hardest to make the match-ups as fair as possible and against as similar stories as possible. But, obviously, this is impossible to do perfectly and some match-ups may seen very random. We apologize for this but it's an evil of the system.
Kombatants should comment on 6 other match-ups to help share the love around! But Kombatants do not cast votes. Please do not comment until after the blog host leaves a comment for the judge votes.
Reminders for the Judges:
Wait until after one of us hosts comments on each entry first and reply to that comment to cast your votes. Try making your votes objective instead of subjective (but if you really love an entry subjectively, don't even feel bad about saying it was a subjective vote - subjectivity rules!).
Be sure to point out the good as well as what needs work. Post under your nicknames! If you forget, just delete and repost. (Note: It's wise to make a copy of your feedback and save it before posting as sometimes the blog eats a comment.)
And judges: seriously, thank you for doing this. It's a very tough job and isn't for the faint-hearted.
