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. :)

I would like to endorse Irene. If not for her generous offer to give a free trial subscription to anyone who would ask, I would not be the detective I am today, nor would I have meet the great people I have met. I don't see much of her, but when I do I see that same spirit.

The following is an endorsement from a sleuth who wishes to remain anonymous:

I want to endorse Irene. She has put her heart and soul into helping people in Sleuth, often with no recognition. She works very hard and puts so much energy and enthusiasm into not only the game and the community but into ideas for the game.
She has given away so many free subscriptions to Sleuth and is always there to help people.
She always comes up with new ideas many of which have been used.
She isn't scared to speak her mind even if people are critical of her.
I think she is one of the kindest, most generous people in the game. She is tireless in her efforts, help and wisdom.
She deserves that recognition.
She is a wonderful woman.

Lady Jas is a very helpful person and long standing part of the community. :)

Sean Dart makes me laugh like none other. His wacky sense of humor and his interesting take on writing never fails to make me chuckle.

Adam Carter is an awesome guy. I have enjoyed many discussions with him and am always glad to see him in Bar. He is very helpful and always is willing to help. :)

Ms Helen dragged me over here from *shudder* Shades. ;) She took me under her wing, guided me, took me into Eye Spy, and is one of my first friends in Sleuth. She is a wonderful editor and loves the game and the community. She's pushed me to live my life more and been there for me when my life has beaten me down. You never know what she's going to say in Barchat, and I'm glad to say she is my friend.

AMG is rather new, but is a very nice woman. She is always polite and is eager to learn and asks good questions. I'm glad she's found Sleuth. :)

I don't think words can describe ctown. :) He is ever helpful, the voice of Sleuth Talk, and hilarious. I was about to give up playing about a month into playing here, and he is the one who convinced me to give it another go. :)

Holly is the love of ctown's life, and she makes him happy. :) Yay for Holly! ;)

Oh, what to say about Heimlich? Heim is a true friend of mine, and I am so glad to know him. He is kind, helpful, funny, and a wonderful writer. He has broadened my horizons and also has helped me through some tough times. He had the amazing idea for Sleuth Survivor, and did a wonderful job at it. Vote for Heim! :D

I had the pleasure of being in Survivor with miss snopes, and she is a lovely person, and a wonderful Sleuther.

Molly! ;) Molly is a wonderful RPer and makes the Bar sparkle in her presence. She is a wonderful person, and I'm glad to know her. :)

Ok, two endorsements today.

Heim is the greatest Director I could wish for. He is truly friendly and helpful, and has nurtured me ever since I set foot in the Obelisk. It's a pleasure to work with him, and every time I see a PM from this fellow, I have to smile, no matter what.

Now, on to Molly. She is the best. No need to say what a wonderful RPer she is, and also a sweet person and excellent friend and fellow agent.

I hope you folks vote for them. They deserve your precious votes.

Oh god. I'm up on the chopping block. *adjusts hair and sequin red gown nervously, pistol and assorted pieces of candy fall out of denizens of dress*

I don't know about making a statement for myself, so I'm going to skip right onto my endorsements. Now this ones a hard one, because not only are two of my dear friends up, but they are AGAINST each other!

First off, ctown28! I don't have the pleasure of knowing Holly yet, but of course I'd like to! ctown28 is possibly one of my favorite people on here. He is friendly, outgoing and an essential Sleuth to every player, new or old. Also, his radio show alone shows him to have the initiative and plain love of Sleuthing that a top contender of March Madness needs! *passes out ctown pins*

I'm unashamedly going middle of the road in my next endorsements. *clears throat*

Heimlich VonVictor! Is there nothing this guy can't do? He organized Sleuth Survivor, which was a smash hit. He's written countless clever and engaging RP posts, intros and many SMs which have earned renown in the community for their pure brilliance. I am also privileged to have him as a director of my agency, and I can tell you that there was never a more kind, caring, organized and truly helpful individual you could count on. Heim is someone you could come to with anything, any sort of problem and he would level-headedly help you solve it. On the same token, he is by no means shy of the more...interesting side of conversation in barchat.

Anais Nin- ... ... Is there nothing this girl can't do? :D the organizer of this March Madness contest, Anais is a very active detective and one of my mentors on the RPing stage. She's always there to lend a sympathetic ear to my-- ah, Sleuthvilles woes, and unknowingly walk into the Innuendo-Traps I lay for her everytime we're in barchat. Its SO EASY. But seriously, she has a heart of gold, is a wonderful writer and a vital contributer to the content of sleuth. :)

Rather than endorsing myself, I'm just going to say in conclusion thank you to all who endorsed me, its very sweet of you and much appreciated. I hope this contest gives many a detective the opportunity to come out of the woodwork and join in the frivolity-- I mean, ah, hard work and dedication to the art of Sleuthing that we strive so hard to accomplish here.

Hi there!!

Might I suggest a run-off at some point (either the day after the current round of voting, or after all of Round 1 is finished), for Kachenka and Peter O'Neil??

It might help make things a bit clearer if they had their own time for votes.

Just a suggestion. ;-)

Thank you!! ;-D

For today's endorsements, I'm going to tell you as much as I can about some of my favorite people.

ctown has been a friend to me for as far back as I can remember. Since Obelisk was first started, he has been constantly watching out for us and helped us to succeed so much. His radio show is great to listen to, and I'm always glad to be a guest on it, because it's probably the most intelligent program on the airwaves today :) He never shies away from being a contest judge or a participant and is always willing to "take out the trash" in bar chat.

Holly I can't say that I know too much about. I've spoken with her twice in bar chat, and she was perfectly lovely. To have landed a guy as great as ctown, she's gotta be something special though.

Anais Nin is an amazing person and one of the best friends that I have ever had. She always manages to make me smile, and her attitude towards many things is something that I wish more people had. Her writing is excellent, and I always love reading her RP posts and having the opportunity to write alongside her. Please cast your votes for Anais Nin as I will be doing the same.

miss snopes is an awesome person and a great player. She's without a doubt one of the nicest people I've ever met on this site, and a great person all around. She made a great showing in Sleuth Survivor and is representative of the best part of Sleuth Noir.

Finally, Molly Maltese. Molly is the type of person that every director wishes he could have in his agency. She joined our agency at a time when it was dead and has hung in there with us as we've rebuilt and become even greater than we were before. It couldn't have happened without her. She's always there with the favor we need for treasure hunts, and in bar she is without a doubt one of my favorite people to talk to.
