This is it. The final showdown. In one corner we have Hollstein, who after last year's Elite Eight elimination pulled in an impressive 13,556 votes last round. In the other corner we have Clexa, who has reeled off victory after victory this year after an elimination in the second round in 2016. Who will come out on top? The poll closes on Monday February 20th at 9:00 PM PST. No voting limits this round to make an even playing field. Don't think I don't know about that cookie workaround ;) And results will be hidden starting at midnight on Sunday. You'll need to turn in to the next episode of the podcast to find out the winner! Shortly after we release the episode, results will be made visible again.
Remember, be nice and HAVE FUN!

Congratulations to all the ships that made the Elite Eight! I've been out of commission most of the day with a pretty awful headache (except for a short Gaga reprieve), so the next round of polls will be up tomorrow afternoon. Get your voting fingers ready!
EDIT: Hey everyone. Looks like Polldaddy is experiencing some technical difficulties. They must be overwhelmed by how awesome you all are being! Everything should be fixed now, but let me know if any of you are experiencing any problems. And thank you for being so wonderfully passionate and kind this round!

Congrats to all you shippers who got your OTP into the Sweet Sixteen! You've all automatically qualified for next year's ship bracket. But the work isn't over yet. Can you get your ship into the Elite Eight? Check out the match ups below. Polls will be up soon.
We've reached the second round of the 2017 ship bracket! Did your favorite ship survive?
Update from Christina: Hi everyone! I've played with and reset the settings on the polls people reported issues with and they should all be working properly. If you find they aren't, it could be a problem on your end. Try resetting the cookies on your computer in that case and it should clear up any problems.
And please remember, if you try to circumvent the system and vote for more than the allotted amount you will be automatically locked out by Polldaddy. That is something out of our control. And please please please be kind to each other. This is an exciting project for ALNM, but the hateful comments and rude personal messages we receive takes a lot of the fun out of it. We would love to do this each year and would hate to have to cancel it.
Because I don't know how long people were experiencing technical problems with the polls, the end of the round has been pushed out to 9:00 PM PST Thursday February 2nd.
