We finally have enough people so the contestants block is locked. Also I would like to notate some changes

The swimsuit portion is optional and is interchanged with a fashion portion. Meaning you don't have to throw on a speedo or bikini you can simply dress sharp or how you please. Dress to impress or keep the speedo. Its up to the participants.

The new portions are as follows.

[1] Video as to why you should be picked
[2] Talent
[3] Fashion portion
[4] Questions

Here is the sign up so far


(1) TUF
(2) dudestop
(3) Lannan13
(4) TylerGraham
(5) CP
(6) xXCryptoXx
(7) GodChoosesLife
(8) Tulle
(9) Noumena

Replacements

I have vetoed some judges so far but you can reapply. I need some serious judges that promise to be fair and equal. Also that will stick with this and have a good history of not trolling.

I would also like to have at least 3 replacements before I start the first round, but this will be starting shortly I hope

I'll judge. This competition is bloody brilliant, Mikal. Nothing better than exploiting DDO members for pics in their bathing suits. ;)

Nah, but seriously, I will be a judge.

Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

It's curious to hear, Mikal, that you "vetoed" several judges. Why is that? Would you justify why you unilaterally feel that some of us wouldn't be fair and equal, or qualified to judge? I'd love to hear your reasoning as to why I, for instance, wouldn't be a good judge.

im only vetoing people whom are relativity new and that I don't know that well. Its less out of bias and more out of whom I know for a fact will stay with the judging all the way to the end. Like if some judges go away for a day or two , it could screw it up. It is also off activity level and people that are extremely helpful with contributing to the site.

Like I said its nothing personal to people I veto, but selecting people that I know without fault that will judge all the way through without going a wall and give a proper reason for voting.

It's curious to hear, Mikal, that you "vetoed" several judges. Why is that? Would you justify why you unilaterally feel that some of us wouldn't be fair and equal, or qualified to judge? I'd love to hear your reasoning as to why I, for instance, wouldn't be a good judge.

im only vetoing people whom are relativity new and that I don't know that well. Its less out of bias and more out of whom I know for a fact will stay with the judging all the way to the end. Like if some judges go away for a day or two , it could screw it up. It is also off activity level and people that are extremely helpful with contributing to the site.

Like I said its nothing personal to people I veto, but selecting people that I know without fault that will judge all the way through without going a wall and give a proper reason for voting.

I didn't take it personally, but I can't help but feel that it's a classic chicken-and-egg scenario. If newer members--myself included, though I've completed about 8 debates after a month which should prove that I'm fairly active--are held back from participating because they're new, how they will ever be held in such esteem as to be considered, by your judgment, committed? If you've created a hierarchy that acts almost as though it's a ruling class, you have to accept that the barriers to entry will deter new faces. My deduction is, honestly, that you're fine with that.

That is a fair assumption, but again I am just having to pick based off of perspective. The only thing I have to go off of is what I know. I don't want to start it and have someone fairly new to the site bail out in the middle of it and leave everyone else stuck in a bind. Most of the people in here I am fairly or moderately certain would not drop out and would follow it through. That is the only reasoning behind it.
