View Full Version : Fall '08 Screen Name Competition [We have ourselves a WINNER!]



Ouch!
11-12-2008, 05:39 AM
Okay, so I’m about two months off the mark with this “every six months” thing, but whatever. There’s been a load of events on EoFF as of late, and now that the election is done, it’s time to slip this one in before Ciddies season starts. With the timely comments out of the way, we can now move to my good friend copy/paste (minor edits included; I'm not that lazy).

For those of you unfamiliar with the competition, 128 screen names vie for the grand title of greatest screen name ever—or at least the best on EoFF. Competitors are divided into eight brackets of sixteen screen names, in which they’re divided into eight different match-ups. You (ideally) select one name from each match-up. The screen name with the majority of votes wins the match-up and moves ahead to the next round. I actually tried to SeeD... er... seed (that's for you, PG) competitors based on prior performance, so hopefully that'll make things pretty interest this time around! For a more detailed history, check the wiki. It’s slightly out of date. Maybe someone will take this as a cue to update it. You never know.

There will be seven rounds in this tournament, and so as to not prolong this too much, I’m gonna go ahead and make each round last about two days (so the tournament as a whole lasts two weeks). Ties will be broken by a randomly selected member (specifically someone who is online while I'm counting the votes and preferably on my AIM or MSN buddy list) who has not already voted. With all that aside, let’s throw down the rules.

The Rules
1. Don’t post your votes.
2. PM your votes to Ouch!.
3. Vote for one name in each match-up in each bracket (you should have eight names left in each bracket).
4. If you do not wish to vote for a specific match-up, just omit it from your votes.
5. Please vote for a majority of the match-ups.
6. Title PMs accordingly for easy recognition.
7. If you wish to change your votes, title the PM “Vote Changes” and list only the votes you wish to change.

A handful of people had trouble with the bracket-style voting last time around, so I made this nifty tutorial which cleared things up!

If the sample bracket looks like this:

Bracket 01
1. Frank
1. John
2. Melinda
2. Bill
3. Beth
3. Lauren
4. Jessica
4. Alex

Then your vote would look like this:

Bracket 01
1. Frank
2. Bill
3. Lauren
4. Jessica

This means that you should have eight people in each bracket, not one. Each match-up is listed with the same number to the left of their names. Pick one of the two in each bracket, not just one person per bracket. Hop to it, people!

All right, ladies and gentleman. Let’s get this ball rollin’.

To start off, let’s take a look at the previous winners of this competition. Hint, this is the most up-to-date list which is far more accurate than the one on the wiki.

Big Ogre Umaro
Rydia of Mist

Voting will close Friday at 12:00 AM EST. Margin of error is +/- 3 hours. I say +/- because I’m not really sure which one means I’ll be as much as three hours late. That one is more likely. at noon Saturday, EST due to extended downtime last night.

For those wondering about how names are selected. They are from a list of members active since the last competition (so the last eight months in this case) with more than 50 posts.

Ouch!
11-12-2008, 06:01 AM
I have posted more than 50 times is the past eight months?

Oh god where is my life going I must escape
50 times in your entire time at EoFF. At least one post in the past eight months.

PS. It was like half a minute fyi.
PPS. I don't actually care.
PPPS. I voted.

Well, I guess the fact that I usually make 50 posts every three days or so doesn't help this, then. :p

Then again, I don't expect to go anywhere with this; my screen name isn't exactly the most imaginative name, after all.

Anyway, totally rooting for Lauren and Melinda.

Denmark

The winner will be from this list, Denmark's guarantee:

Disco Potato
The Shoeless Hobo
I Don't Need A Name
Moon Rabbits

I'll vote sometime when it's not 1:38 AM. Meaning after I've had some sleep, you know.

Momiji? Up against Momiji? It's like cutest male all over again. Though I can't say my name is overly exciting - at least you've got a tree and a rabbit hidden in there somewhere.

I would like to stress to everyone that it's important that this is not a competition where you vote for the username of the person you like the most, but the best usernames.

Having said that, it's awfully difficult to pick between Psychotic and Shiny when both are simply everyday adjectives. So in cases like that, just don't vote for Psychotic.

Yeah, I wanted to pick a name with a few meanings relative to myself (I love autumn and I like rabbit/shota pseudo-traps?.)

Um.

Yours is more imaginative though. xD

Ouch!
11-12-2008, 04:13 PM

Perhaps for the first time, I can legitimately say, I have no clue what you're on about. Renmiri is there. Renmiri is the name listed in the Member List. Am I missing a joke or something?

I would totally win as post-it note boy. Maybe I should change it to the name I got given at work: Johnny 'Two Lunches'. Apparently that's my gangster name. I like post-it note boy equally, though.

While I do love my username, it's for personal reasons. Realistically, Dr. Acula is a much more amusing username, so it's no surprise I lost. :)

If you need more clarification than that, please review the example provided in the first post.

I forgot to make a post announcing the end of the voting period (I was otherwise occupied with telling my sister that she's so drunk that I can't get her past security in the dorms and that she'd have to go back to my Aunt's house and face our mother's wrath), but it's... over!

Before announcing the results, let's take a look at each competitor's history!

Del Murder
Second seed Del Murder scored an early (but expected) 13-3 win over seventh seed Crossblades in the first round. He then pulled a 8-4 victory over the top seed in his bracket, Behold the Void. In round three, Del emerged victorious 10-7 over The Unknown Guru. Del defeated TyphoonThaReapa 9-4 for the Message Bracket. Del slipped by scrumpleberry by one vote (6-5) in the Elite Eight. Del continued his streak in the Final Four with another narrow victory (7-6) over Disco Potato.

ShlupQuack
ShlupQuack was one of our unseeded competitors coming into this tournament (as in the last tournament she was using an alternate screen name); nevertheless, she started strong with a 14-2 victory against the also unseeded competitor zorander. She then dominated Big D 8-2 in the next round. Shlup also made it through round three with a 10-7 victory over I Don't Need A Name followed by a 10-3 victory over Fate Fatale to take her bracket. ShlupQuack had by far the most commanding victory in the Elite Eight with her 9-3 win over Dignified Pauper and then defeated Burtspurt in the Final Four by the same score.

Who will win the Fall 2008 Screen Name Competition? Find out... soon.

Ouch!
11-29-2008, 06:31 AM
And the winner is...

Del Murder

He continues to barely slip by in a 6-5 victory over runner-up ShlupQuack. Congratulations, Mr. Money.
