Merry Christmas, TOC competitors. Consider the re-start up of this tournament as a little present from me.

I've taken over the TOC and am setting R2 up for everyone, and after shuffling through all of the information, this is what I can present to you all:

The Bracket for Round One looks like this (PRO will always be on top, and CON will always be on bottom on the brackets):

http://i103.photobucket.com...

The Tournament is double elimination, so the next round will consist of two brackets.

I am waiting on the RFD's for one more debate. After the RFD's are submitted, I can post all of the results and we can get Round 2 rolling. That should be very soon.

Thank you all for your patience, and hopefully things will be very consistent now.

BACKGROUND:

Round 2 will be just like Round 1. I will group PM you and your new opponent. After you both confirm with me that you are present, you two will have 2 days to choose your own topic for confirmation in that PM. After I give confirmation (and you both reply), PRO will have 3 days to challenge CON. If the challenge is not up within 3 days, the win automatically goes to CON. If CON does not accept PRO's challenge within 2 days, the win automatically goes to PRO. CON is responsible for writing in our group pm that they have received PRO's challenge. PRO is also responsible for writing in our group pm that their challenge has not been accepted by CON within 2 days.

Because the time limits are so structured, I do not expect CON to not accept PRO's debate within 2 days. I would have made it immediate, but have added the extra day for flexibility.

If there are any issues (you are on vacation, or any other situation that comes up), be sure to pm me and I'll see if I believe you ;)

Please try to pm me ahead of time if you know of such an event coming up. Of course emergencies happen to all of us, and I will be just as considerate of those if you can not give me prior notification.

If you forfeit any of your rounds, it is an automatic win for your opponent.

FINAL NOTE AND REQUEST: JUDGES

If there is anyone who would be willing to judge this tournament, please give me a pm. I could really do for some more judges, and your RFD's are kept confidential. Thank you.

If you have already judged in the TOC, please send me a pm notifying me if you're still around and if you are going to be able to help judge Round 2 as well.

--------------------------------

QUESTIONS?

If you have any questions, feel free to post them here or pm me with the subject line "TOC QUESTION".

---------------------------------------------------------

As a side note, I will be friend requesting everyone in the TOC for tournament purposes, so please do accept it.

Thank you again.

Regards,

Vi

Hey - Merry Xmas.

I'm glad Vi is taking this thing over. When I went on vacation in the summer and JBlake took over to help me run things, it got a little confusing afterward since things had happened while I was away (plus I had a lot of laptop issues and lost a lot of saved information). Most of the information I had saved is recovered and I've handed it over to the wife who I figured would be much better suited to run this thing since she's not actually participating in it (so it's most fair -- If I win a debate, I don't want people to think it's because I'm running it, ya know?). Anyway, I'm excited that this thing is finally back up again and look forward to my next opponent :)

Also, I will re-send you the people who have judged in the past so you can contact them. Along with yourself (Vi) there was Lexicoholic, heart_of_the_matter, Logical-Master and others. All competent and unbiased judges. I'll also send you some suggestions of who I think would be similar kinds of judges that you can ask if nobody volunteers.

I've never celebrated Christmas.

This is my first "Christmas" and I get to spend it with my girlfriend :). I come from a Muslim family, and I'm agnostic, so Christmas hasn't ever meant anything to me lol.

I gave Lwerd her present and we're just chilling until I make a big dinner for us, some Christmas cookies, and watch The Nightmare Before Christmas and Love Actually in the spirit of things. Plus, it's a quiet and sad atmosphere after what we had to do yesterday :(

So, getting the TOC started on Christmas doesn't sound like a bad idea for me.

No one in the tournament is allowed to judge (so that excludes Heart, sorry buddy ;) only fair).

JBlake and I have to do our debate, but he's been busy and/or has limited access to a computer. Once that changes, we can do our debate and then I think all of the R2 ones will be completed. Vi's doing homework now, but later on I'll ask her to check and see if any of the people who are finished can go ahead. Originally I had it set up so that this was possible (obviously lol since some people are done).

So...what exactly is the current situation? Both my opponent's for the first and second debate have forfeited, so I'm starving for my first ToC debate :(
