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.

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 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 voted when i ran popcon but didnt vote during mr mtf

you get a bit personal with all the people who send you their stuff, sometimes ask you to help with their english, ask for advice which pic suits the best and stuff. these pageant contests are always more personal, because you basically reveal your all physical appearance and personality

however, they are always, every year, beginning of the best friendships on this forum, even for people who lose in R1

It's just my personal opinion, mate. I think it looks a little biased when an organizer is going to vote, campaign and stuff. An organizer should be unbiased and provide help to every contestant equally.

Especially when one vote can decide an entire match, an organizer shouldn't get involved.
Exactly what Nikki said. You don't want to create unnecessary fuzz. And if you host 1 contest in let's say 3 years you can still vote for 11/12 contests so 1 non-voting contest wouldn't kill you.

Even better: never run a contest at all, no one will thank you for that anyway, they will only complain and whine.
There have to be people who organize contests, otherwise there won't be any
And I think these contests in the off season are pretty fun since there is no tennis around.

But it's no big deal to host it, only the nominations should take some time but if you do that with 2 people it can easy be done. By the way, there are a lot of more competitors in Mr than in Ms so Ms should be fairly easy. You think we should have a Miss contest first, and then the Mr because of the end of the world?
