Waaaay before my time here, Serges hosted Sleuth March Madness in 2007. I thought it looked like a lot of fun, so... without further ado, The copy pasted rules from then with minor modifications! ;)

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 are not allowed to nominate yourself.
You may nominate up to 3 persons.
The nominated must be over 30 days old by March 1, 2010, and active.

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.

We will start the voting on March 1st, so get your nominations in as quickly as possible! Please PM me the nominations, and I will be posting a list of who has been nominated, the brackets, and all that fun stuff as we go. :)

My two endorsements go to Talia Rune and Peter O'Neil, my lovely agency team mates.

Miss Rune is a class act, a hard working director and a wonderful role player. She is also an excellent writer and a wonderful addition to the community.

Mr. O'Neil is a just a darling of a guy, gentlemanly and has the potential to become one of the leading faces of the roleplaying stage in the future. He is also very eager to learn and integrate within the community.

Good luck to everyone else and enjoy the Madness!

I offer my endorsement to my agency team mate Peter O'Neil. He is motivated and quite modest, as can be seen from his post above. I have had the privilege of working with him and see him advance a great deal in the last few months. He is quite the gentlemen and a trusted friend.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Ms. Parr for her nomination as well as both Ms. Parr and Mr. O'Neil for their generous endorsements and kind words.
And a special thank you to Anais Nin to bring up March Madness 2010. It's a wonderful idea.

Oh, my. I want to thank whoever voted for me and endorsed me.
As for myself, I only have one endorsement to make for this list.

VS and I may have had some minor (really minor) differences in the past, but I owe him a lot.
As I was a complete rookie, he took me under his wing and showed me how things worked.
I have come to realize that many people here dislike him, so, out of loyalty and following my heart, I endorse Vampiric Smile.

I also only know of two people on this list, and I shall have to make a point to get to know everyone else!

My two endorsements heartily go to Andrew Corelli and Talia Rune. As some of the more observant of you may have guessed, I live for the RP stage, and both have recently made their additions there in an RP short my friends and I started. Both of them have wonderful styles, and I already adore writing with them and hope there is many more occasions for it in the future. Talia and I have messaged back and forth here and there concerning an RP she joined, and I can tell you that she is one of the friendliest, kindest people I've had the pleasure of speaking to on this site. She definitely deserves to be a top contender in March Madness! *passes out Vote For Talia Rune pins*

I have had the pleasure of speaking to Mr. Corelli on multiple occasions in the barchat, where he enthusiastically joins in our (sometimes inappropriate) merry-making. He is very approachable, very kind and witty to boot. It is my hope that he shall become a household name on Sleuth, for my friends and I greatly enjoy his presence and hope that others will come to do so in the future. The first step to this goal is to vote for him to move on to the next round! Do that, and I shall have a round of martinis for all in the barchat! :)

Next: My endorsements

Wolf Girl 22: Wolfie makes Bar extremely interesting. :) Just don't let her near your furniture. ;)

BadAss: I have had many wonderful deep discussions with this man. He's also helped me with my SM I've been writing for I don't know how long now. :)

Andrew Corelli: He is a hoot. :) As Molly said above, he's great fun in Bar, and he's trying out the Stage. :)
