Anime Saimoe Tournament 2008 (Japan)

Anime Saimoe Tournament is an annual festival of anime characters competing their MOE in 2ch.

Anime Saimoe Tournament 2008 Official Site:

http://friend.45.kg/saimoe2008/

http://saimoe2008.hp.infoseek.co.jp/ <- I prefer this page.

Rules and principles are explained in detail at wikipedia, so I omit to write them and participants are strongly recommended to read them.

There are some of the rules as agreed between the mods in this thread(just copying and pasting from the last year's thread.).

Quote:
No Campaign Posts.

* Absolutely no campaign posts allowed.

This includes posts containing ANY campaign verbiage whether in whole or in part. Contributing to the debate is encouraged, provided you do NOT add "VOTE ABCD!!!" (or similar to the post itself). Simply rebutting another's post or opinion with "XYZ sucks" is totally unacceptable.

To be clear:

* Please do not create a post with the sole purpose to campaign for a character!
* Do not add “VOTE FOR XYZ CHARACTER!!” anywhere in your post even if the intent isn't to purely campaign.

We want intelligent, decent and fun discussions about the weekly Rounds and the subsequent winners & losers.

* No Image campaigning.
Do not create a post with an image or collage representation of a campaign poster. In other words: a PhotoShopped image of the character you want people to vote for with “vote for” text added to it.



Posting Etiquette:

* Please do not cross post information about this tournament in other AnimeSuki threads except those which are related to moe tournaments.
Keep all Anime Saimoe Tournament posts, campaigns, character information, voting links, etc., within this thread only or in your signature (signature size limits still apply).

* No "meta-posting".
Meaning: posting about another poster, the thread or about another post itself, is forbidden and will be deleted on-the-spot, regardless of intention. If you want to comment about another poster that’s off-topic and/or personal, send them a PM.

* Any flame-baiting will be deleted and those people banned.
Please keep the thread positive, fun and clean. If your choice doesn’t win the Round and you can’t discuss the fact without complaining, swearing and baiting people into arguments, then don’t post.

* Do not create image only posts.
You can, however, include an image with your discussion. If you want to visually support the character you’re voting for then please do so in the context of your original discussion and use only one or two images. We would encourage the use of “thumbnails” if possible (and please, no large images). PM the mods if you need help with posting thumbnail images.

You sure you want to use wikipedia as a trusted source?

Anyway, this is also a reminder that this time around the top 8 will have much more value in that they will affect the roster for ISML 2009.

At least about Saimoe Tournament, I don't think wikipedia is wrong. Actually this year's rules are not decided in detail, so I will write them at the first post if there are differences between last year and this year.

We might have to wait on that until it's actually time to vote...

If the voting steps from previous tournament is still valid and can be used in this year's tournament,then here's the step.

- You have to obtain a voting code first.Voting code can be obtained by generating it from the code generator.
- You can start generate your code from the code generator starting from 2400 JST,and once you get it,your code will be valid for the next 22 hours (0100 JST ~ 2301 JST).After the valid period ends,you have to generate a new code again if you wish to join the next day's match.
- Each code can only be used once..and you can only generate one code per day.When you generate a code from the code generator,you'll have to wait for 1-~2 hours (depending on what time you start generating your code) before you can refresh the code generator's page.The code will look something like this on the bottom of the page after you refresh it. >> [[AT0000-animemoe-08]]
- With this code,you're ready to vote.Go to the voting page (Ando will most likely provide the link to it ) and go to the bottom of the page.You will see a reply box in which you will use it to type your vote in that page.
- Type your vote in that reply box on the bottom of the voting pages like this ;

Quote:
[[SaimoeCodeObtainedFromTheCodeGenerator]]
<<character name1@series name>>
Comments/Haiku for char 1

<<character name2@series name>>
Comments/Haiku for char 2

<<character name3@series name>>
Comments/Haiku for char 3

<<character name4@series name>>
Comments/Haiku for char 4

<<character name5@series name>>
Comments/Haiku for char 5
- With this you're ready to post your vote in that page.

There're will be several issues that you might face when voting for this tournament.I had that alot during last year tournament,so be careful when voting,follow the rules,and you will do fine.

Seishi checking in. Hopefully we don't have as many IP bans this year, though I doubt it.

Maybe I'll actually write some more haiku this year.

EDIT: I assume we're going to try rushes again, too?

When you receive that kind of error,iirc its most probably your network IP got banned by 2ch.Reset your modem again and try get a new IP again and test again.

I suppose so. Actually the counting system has not changed, so the voting system will not change.
