I don't. What matters is that you keep to the rules in a fair and transparent way. As long as you do that I see no problem with an organizer also being a voter/cheerleader/man of trust or whatever.

It's up to whoever who's running a contest to decide on their own if they wanna make it supposedly easier for themselves in that way.

Re: 2012 MTF Popularity Contest News Thread

I'm going to attempt to run a Newcomer/Rookie of the Year thread this coming February ...

If you have an issue with a report/infraction, a user, a moderator or just want to talk, PM me.

I support Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, David Ferrer, Del Potro.

Why? Because I love tennis plain and simple

Re: 2012 MTF Popularity Contest News Thread

I agree with Javi that the organizer should try as best as they can to abstain from voting. If they really want to vote though, they should have the right to. This rule actually makes it a little easier to run things, as you have too much to deal with already without possible accusations of being extremely biased. I didn't vote last year and not having a personal opinion on the draw helped me do things more quickly, but everyone has their style so I wouldn't judge if someone did.

I have no idea what happened with Jon but apparently the stakes keep getting higher each year in popcon's ridiculousness. Now the actual organizer is banned? :biglol: No idea how that can be topped next year. trubluefan gets banned? MTF gets a permanent database error screen? idk.

I just want to say congratulations to tripwires for winning this event.

As for the rest, well, in times of crisis, you learn the true character of people.
