As you all know, thread-starting in The Siberian Siren is considered SERIOUS BUSINESS and can forever make (me. :p :angel:) or break (Caio... :awww: :hug:) a poster's standing in the ranks of fellow SS post-whores. Therefore, the honor of opening the final Grand Slam thread of the year should be a hard earned privilege and not just a "whoever comes first" kind of thing. :angel:

But how on earth should we determine this? :scratch:

Well, easy.

We vote!!! :bounce:

Everyone will have up to three votes (1 is mandatory) and can write in the name of the posters (s)he deserves to open the thread.
Your No.1 pick will reveive 100 points.
Your No.2 pick will reveive 70 points.
Your No.3 pick will reveive 40 points.

You cannot vote for the same poster 3 times.

:)


Before you vote, take a minute to go through the past few pages of SS threads and take a look at the tournaments / results and the posters who created the threads. :)


Ps. To the winner: You MUST NOT include "Mission:..." in the US Open thread title even if your name is Marilyn Monheaux. That sh!t is played. :o

VOTE HERE! (http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/M7D6XQB)


ETA: Everybody feel free to campaign for yourselves:


Shameless plug: Miami - Rome - Wimbledon. Word. :cool:

We have two great candidates in JamieO and Lefty - who else wants it? There are so many great posters in SS but it will be hard to deny JamieO's claim.

MarilynM: Shouldn't there be a campaign season with the vote on some specific date in the future?

The rules say "you can't vote for the same person 3 times".

I assume, then, that I can vote for the same poster twice, right?

Nope. We don't have time.

First of all, we also need a new thread(s) for the USO Series tourneys Maria will play. One thread (the one started by !VamosRafa!) for all of them is not practical, we are defo going to reach multiple volumes with that. Plus that thread is a poll instead of a tournament thread.

Second, voted.

MarilynM, Being overwhelmed by the implied urgency I rushed off to cast my ballot at the VOTE NOW link.

Of course I cast the first two votes for JamieO out of sympathy for her earlier disappointment and hoping she would joyously accept the honor of opening the USO thread.

The third vote was a nod to Teerin, who has been a major force on SS even though he has been a bit negligent recently, regardless of his reincarnation as Pi and advanced academic standing.

The problem: Sadly, my German is limited to "Das ist nicht bleu!". I just want to be assured that my votes went through as cast when I clicked on "Fertig", which I assumed meant Complete or Finished, rather than an acronym saying something like "For Ever Reject These Individual Girls/Guys".

Also, when does this Vote end?

Finally, is there a way to see the tally as it develops?

It is to be hoped I won't have to pester you further on this subject.

Good job getting this vote organized and implemented. Thanks!

Opening the USOS tournament threads could go the the second, third and fourth runner's up?!?

1. I think Jamie is a lad not a lady. :awww:

2. Fertig is done. ;)

3. Voting ends at the end of the US Open Series. Whoever wants to open the threads can do just that. We don't need to vote on everything. :lol:

4. Nope. You cannot see a tally, since a) it's a write-in and b) I'm the only one who has access to it. :oh:

In the united states of America, we have political party which is in dire need of a structure for choosing it's presidential nominee for 2012. I am speaking of the republicans, who do have a lot of money available.

Is there any chance you could devise a way for them to choose someone who will not embarrass them?

I actually never cared about opening tournament threads (and I almost never do) but I want to open the US Open thread just because I'm a little tired about people crying jinx left and right all the time.

@ #1. Yeah right! Not the first time that mistake has happened in ss :lol: and ive even done it myself. Is it cuz ppl think most maria fans are girls?
And btw i changed my mind about opening the thread as i want to open one when i can put a banner to go with it. Cant do that on my phone, but it never really was in doubt about me making those highlights when i get my laptop back :lol:

Sorry about that JamieO! I know three "Jamies" and they are all girls, that's the basis for my error.

The USO thread doesn't need to be opened 'til late August. How long will it take to get your laptop back?
