Re: MISS POG ~ Sweet Sixteen Group 1 (Watson vs. van Kasbergen)

When did winning become the focus of this? Isn't the point to post pictures of hot women?

If I were the person that had nominated van Kasbergen and realized that I really had no chance because I was newer to POG than my opponent, that would totally discourage me from ever participating again.

Re: MISS POG ~ Sweet Sixteen Group 1 (Watson vs. van Kasbergen)

the people repping their women want to be able to post more pictures of the girl they're repping, and winning is an important aspect of that

no chance? it was a 6 vote margin. and i had to work my ass off for those votes. he definitely had a chance, a pretty good chance. it could have easily gone the other way

Okay, we'll go with "working at a serious disadvantage."

TBH, I doubt that McAvoy's idea that strategic alliances come into this game at all is remotely true. (yeah i know, hold the front page). +/- type games are one thing (and that's why they suck rocks), but in a game with real content like this, i'm rarely aware of who is pimping for who.

Next year:
Everybody who wants to, sends in a handful of names.
Person running the show makes a bracket.
We all vote impartially.

Nobody has a horse in the race so to speak, and the results will be more indicative of hotness.

Actually I think some alliances are fairly obvious. But I ignore them and just vote for teh hotness.

So, the real contest isn't really the girls, it's who can spam the most people. Which means, the winner of this won't really be Miss POG, it will be Miss mets annoyed enough people to vote for his choice. Nice.

my apologies - I admittedly skimmed a lot of posts here and assumed you were the offender.

I will be voting against Emma in every round, not out of spite, but because she's literally the worst contestant and Yolanthe was probably the best contestant.

Re: MISS POG ~ Sweet Sixteen Group 1 (Watson vs. van Kasbergen)

If you were smart, you would have kept quiet about the spamming, Dustin. You're going to lose a lot of the honest voters in the next round(s) now, especially if they're on the fence about who to vote for. Wolves can swing the lynch, but not against a determined village. Bad play.

The villain always feels obligated to explain his brilliant nefarious plan to the hero instead of just killing him.
