[UPDATE 2]: Ok, here we go. No matter what I do, I cannot get the password protection to work. So this is what we're going to do (it takes more work on my end in these early rounds, but I think it's the most effective and also allows everyone to vote). No captchas. No passwords. No e-mail submissions. I can see every individual vote and IP address that comes in with an exact timestamp. If I see bots, I'll delete those votes. If you use a bot to vote at the same rate a normal human would, then that's kinda a waste of a bot isn't it? If this doesn't work, I'll revisit the solutions tomorrow. Hope this works for everyone.
[UPDATE]: First off, thank you to everyone for being so nice and lovely in your messages. I’ve tested the polls below and find the captchas just as frustrating. You can only click on so many images of a bike before you lose your mind. I’m in the process of removing all the captchas. I’ve also extended the close of polls below to make up for all your technical difficulties.
All polls available below:
And it begins! I gathered the list of ships and placed them into an automatic random generator to come up with this bracket. The list of all the ships can be found here in alphabetical order:
The post is already huge, so the polls will be made available in a separate post available MARCH 22nd at 3PM PT.
Hi everyone! Sorry for the radio silence, but I cannot even begin to tell you how insane work has been over the past few weeks. But the ship bracket will be happening! I have a big test I need to take on the 19th, so from now until then I will leave open the nominations survey for this year's bracket. In all honesty I haven't really kept up on fandom a ton the past year. The last few months especially I've fallen down the BTS rabbit hole for the most part. So I'm really counting on you guys for nomination inspiration! As a reminder, here are the ships from last year that have already qualified:
Some quick notes. This bracket is only for fictional ships and I find it super helpful if you include the fandom in your nomination. I'll see everyone back here on MARCH 22ND for the opening of the bracket! Nominating field below:
