There were only 3 tournaments going on (and 2 if the models one ceased). The 2 remaining ones catered to 2 different things - celebs today and celebs from yesterday who wouldn't feature in a modern one.

There are far more "appreciation" threads running which could arguably be covered by the sole hotties thread. And a hotties/ appreciation thread doesn't have the contest element which distinguishes it from an appreciation thread and was a big part of the fun.

I agree, but I'm not a mod. I thought it was harmless.

Well C. Lee never said anything about there being too many tourneys. He just said I violated the rules.

A couple hours later and they're all gone. They could at least let Big G finish the ToC....but why work things out when you could just blow **** up? Right mods?

I came in...found multiple infraction worthy posts....deleted, warned, infracted, and closed a thread....brought it all up in the mod talk section....a bunch immediately said close them down....so they were closed down.

We go through this every couple of years.

When did you warn again?

And I really dont see the problem with letting Big G finish what he started. Those tourneys have been going since January I believe....how did it take this long to close them. Could have saved Big G a lot of time he wasted building it up.

Edit: but yeah, we still have the Jane thread guys.....

Well that bunch immediately made the wrong call. BG's tournament was great fun and like others have mentioned had a sense of community.

I can understand in the models tourney that there might be. Either ComicChick or Kelly (I don't remember which one) already brought that up in the first version of that tournament. But the other two tournaments (the August Anarchy and the Hotties of Yesterday) were never that bad. The Hotties of yesterday one in particular was the tamest and would sometimes only even feature just portrait-style shots in the match ups with no other pictures even following. When I was running it before I always tried to ensure no-one posted anything that was infraction worthy or infringed the rules as I always kept a close eye on that.

It depends on how you put it to others in the mod talk section. If you used the supermodels tourney as the general blanket statement and described what was in there and applied it to all, then of course, using that standard, mods could indiscriminately say that all should be shut down without knowing the specifics of each thread. They could naturally assume they were all the same and that all had infringed at the same time, especially if they (eg Comic Chick or Kelly) had remembered that they had previously warned about these pics/ reminded of the rules but didn't necessarily remember which one they had done that for.

A couple of months ago Kelly did in fact post a copy of the rules in the Hotties of Yesteryear thread, not because that was the offending thread, but because she saw several of these tournaments going on and then just posted in the first one she saw, but seeing it as a statement issued to all of the threads. However, as I explained at the time, that was the least offending one and that she hadn't posted the same rules in the threads that could potentially be considered more inappropriate (there was a "Best of British Women" going on at the time which admittedly was a little racy). Only subsequently did she then post the rules there in the other ones.

However, if they are just remembering bits and pieces of these things and a general recollection of what happened before (eg the Best of British Women and then the Supermodels one) they could easily just group the other two tournaments together with these and think everything should be closed, which I don't believe was correct.

Oh the things I want to say. If I hadn't made friends here I'd just go ahead and say them.

It is pretty mean spirited, Green put months of work on that tourney only to get it pulled out from under him this close to the finish line.

I will say that those tournament threads did have a nice sense of community. Sure there was some friendly competition in there and occasionally it could get a little zealous, but over the course of 8 months, people did get to know each other a bit, especially since it was mostly the same regulars every day. After a while you even knew who hadn't voted yet and wondered where they were when they didn't. I think I'll miss that part most definitely.

I thought was the best part of them was the community aspect. We all really got to know each other. I'll miss it the most, but I see you guys in other threads.

Exactly

I blame Hill and NickNitro for this

C. Lee told them not to mess with Jane with spam and stuff

There was nothing worthy in BG's tournament or mine to remove them for.

They were pretty harmless.

Raven, PM that post to a mod

I think the mods may have grouped my tourney with the other two....and I would feel terrible if I caused all this.

I'm even too nervous to post a picture of Kelly Brook in the thread I made, just in case I get infracted. Yes, she's just wearing a Jessica Rabbit like dress, but I don't feel particularly safe doing it.

I talked to a couple mods, I think we should just wait a day or so, and see what happens.

I don't want to piss them off to the point of no return.

Who's this Jane Levy character anyway? Why does she have her name on our complaint thread?
