    Mel, I edited your OP to remove color, since the body of your message was pretty much invisible on dark forum backgrounds. Good luck with your event.

    May I ask, are you allowed to enter more than one Pod? For example JBK might not make the show, could I enter his pod for him as well as my own? Or is it just one per person :)

    Thanks,

    The people that enter the event are all judges and how it will be done will be told to you at the event

    so everyone will have a vote ..that way its fair and it cant be said there is any cheating going on :)

    That just seems a little backwards if you ask me, to not let us know how the judging will go until the day of the event. I think if anyoneshould judge it should be someone from the A team and yes the time may be anissue so move the time to better suit the A team.

    The reason being, there has been a few events held that havehad questionable outcomes like the apartment one going on right now it becomes apopularity contest or who has the most friends to vote for me. Heck even oneguy said he would divide 1000 ped between the people who voted for him, how isthat fair to all who entered?

    My concern is this I don’t want to waste my time or ped toenter into a contest that only a select few will ever win and it seems to bethe same winners more often than not. Not to mention it seems a lot of peoplewho will enter will have a conflict of interest. It’s just not a fair event ifthat happens.

    Example: I own a pizza shop and hold a contest for a freepizza party and allow my employees to enter if by some chance one of them winit will seem like the whole thing was rigged hence causing a problem. If youhave people sponsoring the even then anyone associated with them should not beallowed to join.

    Most places that have competitions like thiswill not allow immediate employees, associates, sponsors, friends or family toenter. Reason=conflict of interest it just bad business, and creates mistrustand doubt in the legitimacy of the whole thing. Don’t believe me look theforums over.

    Sounds like fun ;)

    Just 1 question...

    Can you enter all 3 rounds, (MK1, MK2 & MK3)

    or is it just one event per avatar?

    Mel said just one hoverpod per avatar, so you can only enter one competition.
