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. :)

Please do not kill me for this. My Sleuth Mail won't open and nothing to do with it works for me. If someone can please (please!!!) PM my votes to Anais (naming me and my problem) I would be really grateful...

Meanwhile I will just hang around and advertise the most deserving people:

ctown seems to be on every thread where you need him. he also added more than one new thread on the message board ('The last person to post in this thread wins' is quite popular as the longest time with no post was probably less than half a month) and never ceases to surprise on those threads. An interesting sleuth in many ways.

Heimlich VonVictor has proven to be a sleuth that deserves this vote in many ways. I wish him luck with his invention! However, without Anais this thread wouldn't be here. (I will not vote here on the grounds that they are pretty equal)

miss snopes gets my vote and I hope she gets yours. She has more Arch Villains and looks slightly more interesting, and also has more experience.

Molly Maltese. Interesting character. I recommend that she receive the amount of votes she rightly deserves. A vote for her is a vote for justice and freedom! (Or is that the other voting?) She has shown herself to excel (do I sound a bit like a teacher writing school reports?) and has more experience than me (due to inactivity, RL and laziness on my part and hard work on hers.) Go Molly Maltese!

(Like I said, please somebody PM this to Anais as my Sleuth Mailer is broken...)

Ctown has been around, well, more days than I wish to count. He hosts the wonderful sleuth talk radio and I have also had the pleasure working with him during our time at eye spy. He's a great team player and always ready to answer your questions.

Vote Ctown!

Heim and Anais - Personally there is no way I can pick between the two. Both are big characters in Sleuth and both have a heart of gold. Always there if you need to rant or just talk and great team players. They have both contributed a lot ot Sleuth and are equally as worthy of your vote. I am very privalaged to have them both as friends.

Vote Heimlich or Anais!!

Molly Maltese, is a fellow agency mate and great fun to work with. Not only that but she livens bar chat up no end when she graces it with her presence ;) If you ever need to have a laugh then visit bar whilst molly is in and you're guarenteed to leave laughing.

Vote Molly!

Boy, I think I'm lucky this isn't a teacher report. Can you imagine all the things I'd get written up for? Dubious dress...carrying concealed firearm...shameless bribery concerning alcoholic drinks...inappropriate innuendoing during serious discussion...


Thanks a bunch guys! That was really nice of you all. :)

Again, I can only endorse the folks I've met. I recognize many of the names and see them often and look forward to knowing them better. Again I thank Anais Nin for this venue and the way it enhances this goal.

1) Turtledove, because he seens to know and notice all. Early in my career, he PMd me a couple of times, just to see how I was doing and to offer gentle encouragement. And it didn't matter if I was in an agency or not. More of a "for the good of the order" kind of thing. And now that I am expanding my own involvement, I see that he is continually popping up in exactly this way. A real plus for the community.

2) Ms Violet Parr. It has only been a short time since she first popped into my world during the Survivor challenge. And while I had already endorsed Riza in that competition, I was immediately struck by her style and class as I explained why I could not endorse her then. Imagine my surprise when she appeared at Joss Boss HQ the very next day!? It is Ms Parr, more than anyone else, who is inspiring me and encouraging me to explore the RP stage. I intend to make her proud, but for present I am proud to endorse her, and call her friend.

* nods respectfully to turtledove, then turns and nods politely and appreciatively to Ms Parr *

Today, I'm here to endorse Mr. M. Lacrimosa.
It is always hard for me to talk about the friends I have made in Sleuthville, but I shall try.
M. is a great guy, from my p.o.v.
He may be a little quiet (not that this is a flaw), but he's a great rp-er and excellent team player.
So, if you don't know who to vote, vote for M.L.
He deserves it.

I would like to offer my endorsement to two people.

Ms. Violet Parr is a wonderful agent, whom I have had the pleasure to work with for the last few weeks. She is an excellent writer and role player and not to mention a very sophisticated lady.

I met M. Lacrimosa on the role playing stage. He is a wonderful writer and truly an asset to the community.

I would like to speak up for:

turtledove, who is just a fabulous person and who really deserves your votes, just because I said so. ;-D Seriously, if you know turtledove, you know it's true, and if you don't know turtledove, you really need to meet him!

ShadowChii is another valuable member of the community, who may not hang about in bar chat or on the boards much, but she makes her contribution with Intros and Scripted Mysteries. I'm sure we've all enjoyed at least a couple of her works at some time.

On the other hand, Violet Parr is a very visible and also valuable member of the community who loves to roleplay and welcomes everyone to said roleplay. This vote is going to be a very difficult one for me, and will be the second time I have to pull out a coin to flip. Grr!!

What can I say about topkebab that other people, who are currently more missing and possibly dead than I am, haven't already said? No one ever proved those charges against her! Seriously, tk is a terrific lady that I am proud to call friend, and I hope you vote for her! She's a great sleuth, a helpful person, and she loves to get involved, even if it's just with digging shallow graves in the woods. Oh... did I say that out loud?

M. Lacrimosa is a terrific guy who is fun to chat with, fun to roleplay with, and pretty easygoing most of the time. He's also a terror when he wants to be, but in a fun way... if that makes any sense.

Rosamund Clifford... do I even have to tell you why she deserves your votes? Come on, people!! Rosamund is an author extraordinaire, as well as the champion of Cairo and Sleuthetania, always trying make those sparsly-populated places more popular (play her SMs!!). She's been a member of the community, like, FOREVER, and she's always helpful, generous, and kind. Without her, Noir would be a lesser place.
