    Yep I am subscribed....I noticed in a previous email you told a person who is not involved that they could vote. Is this a possibility for anyone, because I am not sure if I like the idea. Someone could contact all of their friends and get them to vote for their characters....

    I'm okay with voting from outside of the game but be warned that if I get even the slightest hint of someone bringing in friends to vote for them then I will not only ban the voter but the person who got them to come in and vote for them as well. I'm sure there will be warnings but I'm not a very forgiving when it comes to cheaters or bullies. Getting your friends in to vote in general is fine as long as I can see that they aren't being biased toward you. I'm friends with just about every one of you but I don't want you to vote for me based on that. This is a gentlemen's game and I want it to remain like so.

    It says at the beginning of each voting thread. Last voting day is Wednesday, I believe.

    Yeah, I PMed everyone who had matches this week on Friday night, same time I set up the matches. (In fact, I now notice that hardly any of the pictures I posted showed up. That hopefully won't happen, as Nightwing was really nice to help me out and sent me pics and bios.)

    Well the voting will end on Wednesday night (my time here in Ohio currently 11:55pm as I type this). I don't know exactly what time but it'll be late, probably around 11:00 PM (after "Lost" goes off :))

    Well.... I wanted to watch it when it first came out but because it came on when I was at church and I don't have a VCR I just couldn't. Then when summer started it started to come on an hour later so I could catch it. So now I'm about 6 or so episodes into it and my wife and I are both 100% hooked. I doubt it'll run full before season 2 starts so I plan on buying the DVD as soon as it comes out to get caught up. It's the only thing on tv that I watch. I hate tv and only watch 1 hour of it a week.... and that's Lost!

    But yeah.. I'm a Lost Junkie now! (Don't ruin anything for me. I already got the death ruined,... NO MORE!)

    Trust me you don't find out much...I watched it religiously and watched the repeats in between the new shows. There is a couple of answers solved but a whole lot more unresolved. After you finish watching last year's shows go visit www.spoilerfix.com there is a lot of neat information there, as well as other shows.

    But anyways...So there is still one full day of voting...you got anxious to start the voting, didn't you JH?

    Haha...I just started watching the reruns of Lost, too. I missed the first episode, and decided way back when to wait for the reruns. Plus, my other shows were interfering with it. I'm really enjoying it, though.

    I noticed that by continuing to the next 2 matches of every bracket (I am assuming that is how it's done) that I will not have any characters to fight in the next round...oh well I could use the rest after this week.....

    Thanks for that, I'll look into it. And I didn't really want to vote so early but I had gotten a few questions on how to vote so I just went ahead and did it so everyone could see. For now on I plan on waiting until just before I close the voting late Wednesday night.

    By the way do you think we should continue with more matches per thread? It seems (at least this first round) there is a lot of ownerless characters.

    It's definitely got some good information for next season. AND don't worry they don't go full blow out spoil any information. It simply states vague information like "Michelle Rodriguez" will be in season 2 as more of a main character.

    Actually what I meant about the early voting was that I thought it wasn't going to start until midnight on Tuesday evening.

    Battlefield Question:

    I was wondering what is the battlefield? Is it simply NY city, is it a stadium, is it a room, etc....

    I think if we leave a vagueness to it all that it makes it confusing for both the opponents and people reading. If we simply set a location then we can work with that and be able to more clearly describe situations.

    As well, I think we should have multiple possible locations and it will be picked radomnly for each match that week.

    i.e. Wharehouse, Boat Docks, Park, Building Top, Street corner, bridge, Stadium, graveyard, simple room, bank, etc....
