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. :)

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.

My endorsements for this round will go to Aknas & BreitKat.

Aknas is a good friend and such a sweet soul. Everyone who ever had to deal with her in the slightest knows that. She is one of those players whose presence in the community instils a sense of calm and serenity.

Breit is to me a personal hero for having been one of the driving forces for what is now known as the role playing stage. She is also an excellent writer and a very kind person.

Wishing everyone the very best.
