    2008 March Madness :: Discussion Thread

    MARCH MADNESS 2008
    4th annual Arena tournament

    This is the official 2008 March Madness discussion thread.
    This is bracketed tournament in which each round players will be paired together and given the same stock image. Each person will then use this stock image somewhere in making an image of their own. Once submitted, Flashkit members will vote using a poll on a winner for each pairing who will advance to the next round. With each round the number of competitors is cut in half until there is just one person left who will be crowned winner!

    The idea for this comes from the American NCAA basketball championship tournament where the top 64 college teams compete in the same style bracketed tournament to determine the champion for that year. It is "march madness" because there is tons of games on TV the whole month, and many of them come down to the last seconds (or second, or tenth of a second!) and there are always underdogs that beat the higher seeded teams.

    ROUND 1 Results -
    A-D|E-H|I-L|M-P

    ROUND 2 Results -
    A-D | E-H

    ROUND 3 Results -
    A-B | C-D

    ROUND 4 Results -
    A | B

    * Rotation allowed


    VOTING:

    * All members are encouraged to vote
    * A multiple choice poll will allow you to vote for your favorite image from each of the individual match ups for each round. Due to the large number of people in this battle, there will have to be multiple threads with polls. Make sure you vote in each of them
    * DO NOT VOTE MORE THAN ONCE! We can detect if you try to vote multiple times and will ban anyone caught doing so
    * Do not try and "sell" your image. All images in the polls are anonymous but it will not be tolerated if you go around telling people to vote for your image.
    * Please feel free to PM lefteyewilly about any voting concerns you may have. We would prefer that you PM lefteye or one of the other Arena moderators rather than post your complaints in the public thread

    Sorry guys...I didn't mean to start "the thread". I can't really keep the list updated up there because I can't edit my posts.

    But count me in too!

    Naw, it's all cool Nords.

    I just wanted to make any thread about it to sorta stick around. I'm sure the mods will be all up in here checking out who says what... but honestly, let's just consider this "a" thread for the upcoming March Madness.

    <lefteye edit:removed initial participants. Full list in first post>

    are you serious? I believe you signed up in 2006 and flaked out.

    Thanks for reminding me, there was a story but I won't bore you with it.

    I'll just stick with regular battles until I establish myself. I was hoping for a collab along the lines of the roll canvas but my memoy isn't too good and I didn't think to search the forum (I blame the cider for that).

    I'm in again. Hopefully the 3rd time is the charm, and I can make it past the first round .

    Just a few questions since this is my first go at it:

    When does the event start?
    How long do we get to drop after the stock image has been revealed?
    (If I get past round one) How long is the delay between rounds?

    I understand the concept of the contest, but don't remember reading about the time frames for submisisons.

    Thanks!

    -Sandy
