Looks fun. Instead of a ribbon, maybe you can create a medal with the face of Wallace Shawn on it.

At the very least, I think the ribbon for this should be shown askew.

Or maybe forgotten altogether.

The Wild Card

Members, gaze upon your Wild Card:



As you all know , we always try to find a new and refreshing approach to our tourneys.
This time everybody will automatically receive a Wild Card. These Wild Cards are worth 2 extra voting points and can only be used ONCE per member during the tourney.

What is the purpose of this Wild Card?

Donít you hate it when one of your favorites just doesnít make it through the preliminaries or to the next round?

Donít you wish that you could just have one more vote in order to be able to support the battle that YOU feel should win?

With this Wild Card, you will be able to support your favorite battle with not ONE, but TWO extra votes.


How do I use my Wild Card?

Easy, you just post your Wild Card publicly on the thread and clearly add which battle you would like to support with an extra TWO votes.

Wild Cards sent by PM will be considered void. They are only valid when posted PUBLICLY !!!


When do I post my Wild Card?

After the official closing of the preliminaries or the tournament round, members will receive exactly 24 HOURS Ėnot more nor less- to post their Wild Cards.

Wild Cards that have been posted before the closing of the poll or more than 24 hours after the poll will automatically be considered void. So it is of utmost importance to handle quickly.

The next campaign will begin here in Armchait Attacks in the very near future.

It is how one gains those little ribbons some of us have in our vanity plates...
