So, what's next?

There are 3 off season contests left. Pop Con, Miss MTF, and then Mr. MTF.

Any volunteers to start the Popularity Contest? AKA high school backstabbing contest?

So that's like 1-2 weeks, and Miss and Mr. maybe can be run simultaneously. This way, we get everything done before Abu Dhabi.

Not like last year contests stretching into January. I think ACC was held a bit too late, could easily have gathered nominations during the YEC, ran it during DC final week, and we wouldn't have to rush the other 3. I'll get the ball rolling at the Pop Con if no one else wants to give it a go.

I will take PopCon. I may or may not just ditch it after a few days though...

Re: So, what's next?

If Freaky does the popcon(I doubt he will after saying he's gonna ditch it) I bet AJ gets "withdrawn"

Re: So, what's next?

We should do Mr and Ms MTF in seperate weeks, maybe start Pop Con nominees on Friday or something? Nominating 1 week, and voting 1 week.

Same with Mr and Ms MTF.



I already hosted last years Miss MTF contest, so if anybody needs help or assistance I will help them.

Re: So, what's next?

I actually win though. I'm being serious in case you're wondering. But I would love if Johnny would co-manage with me

Re: So, what's next?

I think it's okay if one of the contests stretches into January, just so long as it ends before AO (which doesn't start till the 2nd week). Abu Dhabi is not that riveting. And anyways there will be more people coming to the site if there's a tournament on, so more voters. Bet ya this place is dead in that week between Christmas and New Year's.

AJ wouldn't win anyway. Many have lost alot of respect for him after this whole 12 hour voting window debate aswell as other issues with his running of ACC.

If I remember correctly you are a notorious choker in all these competitions. What makes you think this year will be different?
