After much debate, SRK’s annual Women’s Madness Tournament is making another appearance in GD! For those of you who don’t know, the Tournament was held on a yearly basis here on SRK, where the posters not only nominated 64 (or more) of the hottest women they could think of but voted on who they thought was the hottest woman based on a bracket, March Madness style.
Since The Invincible Swordsman has bowed out as the organizer of the tournament, I’m taking it over, and there will be a few things that will change to allow for a better tournament than in previous years.
So let’s get to how this will work:
This is the Nominations Thread. (As if you didn’t need me to tell you that.) This means, everyone that posts here who’d like a woman to be possibly entered into the field of 64 is entitled to make a post with 8 women in it. Of these 8 women, each one will fit into a specific category.
By specific category, there will be 8 different titles for each woman to fit into. For example, past winner Hirori would fit into the category of Asian girls (I’ll come up with a better name later, it’s too early in the morning). Christina Hendricks for the white wommenz category. Self Explanatory right?
Note: All previous champions will not need to be nominated as they will be included in the field.
We’ll keep this thread open for a week or so before the seeding will begin. I’ll try and wait until EVO’s over before having this closed. To determine the seeding, I’ve organized a group of posters from various places here on SRK more of whom I believe to be more qualified than myself to judge particular categories. After all the nominations have been taken and the seeding determined, this thread will be closed.
After the bracket has been set up, I’ll open up a main thread where all of the voting will take place. This is a change from previous years where multiple threads were opened across GD, then closed after the voting takes place. This is to cut down on the amount of unnecessary threads I’ll have to make and we can keep clutter of GD down. So by now, some of the participants/older posters are wondering, how are the votes taken if this will be in one thread?
The old system of polled threads was flawed. It ultimately lead to the famous saying that Pat Morita in drag would beat out Esther Baxter because of SRK’s yellow fever. It also allowed all the lurkers on GD and other threads to shift votes in directions not humanly possible. Also, lets not forget about the posters who’d go into other sections of SRK to get people to vote against a particular woman. So to get rid of this system, I’m proposing that we have a committee of Preregistered Voters. That means, if you’d like to vote on the bracket, post up here in the Nominations Thread. Votes will be counted like in the Battle Poll Contest Lantis holds. I’ll set that number to 31 posters for the moment. Each match up for each round will be posted in the main thread and voters will be required to post their votes.
Images (safe for work) and videos (if we can find them) will be posted of each particular woman.
I’ve been given a short leash on the tolerance of flame baiting, so try and have fun with this and not get your panties in a bunch.
TV Women (To include but not restricted to News Anchors, Daytime soap actors, Reality TV stars etc)
The Oriental Women
The Latin Women
The Caucasian Women
The Black Women
Also, I’ll open a post after this to keep track of who’s been nominated. Just because a woman has gotten a nomination doesn’t guarantee her a spot. Try not to nominate who’s already on the list.
EDIT: All people posting nominations will be accepted as voters.
