It's to me, these votes will be sent.

Postal votes will be pasted in here as well and as Jimbo said that they will be counted prior to voting.

From which 24 hour period would that be from? Which geographical region would it be set? So would it start from midnight to midnight Australian time? Any changes to structure will be announced as quickly as possible.

What if, say, 20 people sent in postal votes? The matches could be over before they've begun. As Jerry Seinfeld pointed out, it only takes 18 votes.

There should be a limit to the number of postal votes, if not the matches will already be decided by tomorrow at 15:00 CET.

I will limit it to the first 6.

Please note that the only the first 6 postal votes will be counted and once I have received the first 6, then that option will be closed.

Every postal vote will be pasted in the thread and the posters name bolded.

Re: R1 Bottom Half of the ArseClowm Champs. Voting starts 15.00 CET

wait, but then some postal votes won't be counted at all, and the people won't be able to know that.

For example i sent postal votes, but if they weren't counted then i would at least want to know that so i could vote for whatever matches haven't finished when i do wake up, i'm sure they won't ALL Be done, but some will. So somehow people need to know that their votes that way didn't count or they might miss out completely and we wouldn't want that either, right?

This is simple. GWH should send a reply to the PM right away, confirming that the vote will be counted.

Re: R1 Bottom Half of the ArseClowm Champs. Voting starts 15.00 CET

In the thread title I will mention that postal votes are closed and at the moment, there are 4.

At the same time as Seinfeld made a valid point, that postal votes should not be able to decide the outcome of matches, hence the number has to be limited for that reason alone, before people have the time to vote.

There will be discussions over changes to the voting structure as mentioned by Jimbo.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

We may need to draw lots to determine who can get their postal votes in.

Postal Votes are now closed children
