Sleuth March Madness
  <<First Page  |  <Previous Next>  |  Last Page>>  


Mar-1-2007 13:41

In honor of that lousy waste of a month February being over, I have decided to hold the first-ever Sleuth March Madness Tournament!

The premise is pretty simple. We compile a list of 64 of the game's most recognizable players, seed them into a tournament bracket, and allow Sleuthville to vote for the "best" in each matchup.

Rules for eligibility:
You must be subscribed and over 30 days old
You must PM me with your intent to enter the tournament or to nominate an eligible member for the tournament. If you are nominating someone, you must also be subscribed and older than 30 days.
Entries and nominations should be messaged ASAP. As soon as we get 64, the seeding process will begin and the matchups will be posted.

After the initial bracket is filled, I will post a few matchups here every day. Then, the people involved in those matchups will have an opportunity to say "anything" on this thread that they feel will allow them to advance to the next round of competition. Sleuthville votes will be what decides the winners, and voting information will be coming soon.

The overall winner of this tournament will receive $100,000 sleuth cash.

Please begin sending your nominations and entries to me ASAP, and good luck!

calata has been a wonderful contributor for a long time and Izolan though a younger sleuth impresses me every day with her keen love of the game.

Besides this they are both fantastic people.

Go Guys!

Serges knows I love him, so I can say this safely.


She's the mod that sets the standard for all us other mods. (another fine sentence Squirrel)

When we're all banging on, putting forth our own personal opinions, getting feisty, and trying to wrestle Serges knifeboots off him so we can have a go, REDA is there doing what mods are meant to do. Moderate.

Go back through Reda's post history: you'll find helpful, equal, rational statements and arguments, for the good of all Sleuth.

And when I think of all the Newbie questions that she must have has answered... *shudders*

One of the oldest Sleuths (in Sleuths days 1000+), a Director of one the oldest and best agencies that's ever gone round, Fat Kitten, Reda is often the ballast in a sometimes otherwise very tilty Sleuth Ship.

She has earnt our respect, and in all honesty, she has earnt your vote.

Vote for Reda.

Squirrel out.

Okay, I haven't known Lulah for 14 years...but I can tell you that in the 7 months-ish I've been sleuthing, she has been a constant rock for me. If you need something, she makes sure you get it. If you are having a bad day, she makes you laugh. If there's any sort of problem, she fixes it. She is an amazing, warm, funny, genuine person inside Sleuth and out. Lulah cares so much for others that it just radiates off her (in fact, I have the burns to prove it!). I can't say enough about Lulah (and she's willing to move al-Q into my basement in THAT rocks! All al-Q all the time!!)!

Lulah may not be one of the better known names but she is probably one of the most dedicated and loyal players of the game. She and Tin and John built al-Q together and raised us from the depths of the agency lists to where we are in 6 (no, wait, now it's 7) short months. I've said it before and I'll say it again - I think that's an incredible accomplishment and I'm proud to have been part of it. So....the bottom line is:


(Oh, and PS...thanks to all of you who voted for me in the last match up. I'm so happy to be a part of this community. It meant a whole, whole lot! :) )

The winners will be announced tomorrow as soon after midnight as I am able to post them.

***Let me reiterate the obvious conflict of interest that occurs with submitting votes today. To those that might may feel uncomfortable voting against me, since I can see who votes for whom, my wife will be managing "Ballot Box" any day that I am "competing", and I will not physically see any votes sent to that character on those days. Anyone who chooses to send their votes via "Serges" does so with that caveat.***

Lulah has made me laugh so hard that I thought I was going to have to take my computer in for repair after spitting my rum and coke all over my keyboard. She is the goddess of role-playing (I have to call her a goddess because we are all goddesses at al-qahirah... even the men). For those who have been priveledged enough to read our "Desperate Housewives" novelette we have been developing over the past few months... you know exactly what I mean. She is a witty, kind, wonderful, person who I consider a true friend. Really... a friend, not just the director of my agency in an internet game.

If you do not know her personally, you should get to know her. Your life will have a little sparkle of sunshine because of it.

Vote for Lulah or else Pecker will be very angry and you do NOT want to endure the wrath of Pecker. Trust me...I've been there...

Thanks Squirrel!

Even though I probably dont have any chance against Serges *blush*
(wel he came up with this great idea) it was hartwarming to read! Glad my efforts at moding and helping newbies didnt go un-noticed. *reda is now red*

No matter who you choose, Im very proud of training and/or working together with the greatest of Sleuth!

Im looking at my age (sleuth) and cant really get it. 3 years! have gone by.
Many great friends, many sleuth arguments and so many changes!

It is nice to remember all the faces that started this game when it was still in Beta.

It is really cool to see how this game developped and keeps on changing.

It makes me proud to see all the people who started their career in Fat Kitten and now have their own wonderfull agencies.

I'm glad Im still here :)

I just have to second everything that Paranoid Android said about Reda - and add that she is an AWESOME agency director. She spends a lot of time helping our newer agents, keeping an eye on equipment and generally just "being there" for us. She made me feel welcome at Fat Kitten right from the first day, and I know she does the same for everyone.

Much as I admire all the time and effort Serges has put into helping to develop Sleuth, without dedicated people like Reda the game would not run as smoothly as it does and that effort deserves recognition.

Vote for CREXTIN!!!!!

Here's a director that comes up with ways to help keep the fun in sleuth! He is there to help all other agents and officers when needed. He is also active in helping generate the role-playing apect of the game withing the agnecy. A vote for crextin is a vote for new ideas and fun!!!!
