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. :)

Joseph Zeo has always been very sweet and was very impressive in survivor, but I have to give my endorcement to Ms. Hawkeye. Riza was so welcoming to me when Anais brought me into Vidocq Society. She's incredibly kind, funny, a wonderful director, the reigning Survivor Sleuthville, and a detective few can compete with in skill. GO RIZA!!!!!!!

Riza is an awesome person to chat with and an excellent RP-er. However, my endorsement goes to Joseph Zeo. I feel as though I must vote for him. I would also like to endorse Shady. Shady, is just way too cool!

I just need to say one thing here.

I would not be the detective or person I am today without either ctown or Heim. They are both wonderful guys and I am so glad I know them both. So... Vote for ctown or Heim! :)

I would like to endorse the following people:

Lady Jas - She is incredibly supportive of all players old and new, and helped me out when I was very new to Sleuth and had an agency problem, she's a dynamo treasure huntress and she's a great friend.

Ms. Helen - All around great gal and humorist. The message board game room has always been a little brighter with her posts.

Hmmm, the three way tie...

I am going to endorse Anais Nin, this is a very, very hard choice because all three are incredibly vibrant members of Sleuth, however, Anais Nin is funny, kind and has more quotes than Shady. (Well and out of the three she has the best name!)

Finally, Molly Maltese, I've only recently begun to get to know her but she was very funny in my one interaction with her.

Okay to sum up:

Vote Lady Jas!
Vote Ms Helen!
Vote Anais Nin!
Vote Molly Maltese

A 3-way tie would have been cool. Better than being left behind. But hey, its a tough job and somebody has to do it.

Congrats to Andy (hope I'm not being too familiar). And to my freind and agency mate, Talia.

Going forward, turtledove vs Ms Parr is tough. Turtledove has been "bouncing" in and out since my first days in Sleuthville and I look forward to seeing what the future brings. Ms Parr has been a fairly recent addition to my circle. Her presence came quickly, with flair and style, and I am looking forward to working with her (a true Sleuth legend, I think) to see what she and I and the whole community can create together. So I must endorse Ms Parr.

* raising his glass and nodding politely, of course *

To the future!

The Endorsements as put forth by the illustrious pen of Madamoiselle Molly Maltese,

Oh, this contest is full of tough decisions! It vexes me just thinking about it! However, one has to make a decision and suck it up for the general to-do of the game, and so here are my endorsements, given lovingly to my dear friends.

While I adore turtledove and have known of him for a while, in this instance my loyalty lies with the delighful Ms Violet Parr. Flair and style are grand words to describe her, good show, Peter! Ms Parr is friendly, yet sophisticated. Her talents on the RP Stage speak for themselves, so much so that when she complimented my RPing I squealed like a little girl, for her praise is high praise indeed. :) She is charming, witty and delightful company. It is a dark day indeed when she is not at the forefront of such a competition. I think many will agree with me that she deserves nothing less than to continue on in March Madness.

Though I stand in awe of Rosamund Clifford and her writing abilities, not to mention her villain-hunting ones! I must put my endorsement with Marc Lacrimosa. He has been a member of Obelisk for quite some time, and is always there to help out a friend in need, and to burst on the scene, guns a-blazing in our many RPs. Vote for Marc!

LauraVo, my darling, I appreciate your sweet compliment. I have always had a rollicking good time reading your posts and speaking to you when the chance comes about. She is witty, friendly, and amazingly good-looking. You all must vote LauraVo.

BreitKat, though I've only spoken to her on a couple occasions, has been the epitome of sweet and helpful. She is a truly lovely lady, and there is no question that she should continue on. Even through the real-life complications that arise here and there, darling Breit has always stayed loyal to Sleuth. We are blessed to have her among our ranks.

There you have it, my endorsements for today. Good luck, my dears!

From the desk of Molly Maltese
