hello to future lj historians!

I'm just updating the community to make sure anyone trying to document the history of LJ fandom gets attributions right because I have seen myself be the only person mentioned regarding Fandom March Madness in a couple of places and that's not fair, so just to be clear:

The person who came up with the concept of FMM and ran most of the contests was typicrobots.

I (penumbra) co-modded the contest for a couple of years along with astrofisica after typicrobots handed it over to us. I realised today that LiveJournal lists me as the only owner of the community which is why I'm the one listed on FanLore, etc., but all of the community-building was done by typicrobots and I would say that while the two of us were co-mods at least half of the work was by astrofisica. Just to be clear that this definitely wasn't only or even mostly my project, although I'm listed as the owner of the community.

Viva Holly Hooper!

2015 Fandom Steel Cage Match March Madness Office Pool!


Fandom March Madness

(PRINTABLE PDF)


Rules/Directions

1. In the bracket sheet above, each bracket is a single match-up. Choose which character you think will win in the polls and move them forward to the next round, until you FILL OUT THE ENTIRE SHEET, FROM NUMBER 1 TO NUMBER 63.

2. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT: Any entry which does not follow the correct format will not count in the office pool. Our system for awarding points won't recognize spelling/formatting mistakes, and we can't go through everyone's predictions fixing it for them.

3. CLICK TO FILL OUT YOUR BRACKET. Follow the instructions at this page exactly. You will receive a message thanking you for submitting your bracket. This is a new system and we are hoping that there will be no problems with it but if — and only if — you receive an error message please copy and paste the following into a comment and we will manually add your entry:



3. Use the name of the character EXACTLY as it shows up on the bracket sheet. To make sure there are no mistakes, you can copy and paste the character names from the table on the website.

4. Each correctly predicted character earns you the number of points assigned to that round, with a possible total of 1200 points. The prize for winning the Fandom Office Pool is a Winner Choice's bracket in next year's games!

That means your pet fandom as long as it fits into our eligibility criteria gets automatically gets a spot in the bracket!

5. If you double-submit at the website your bracket will be disqualified.

6. If you would like to view other people's brackets, here is the page for that.
