This will run for 3 days. After 3 days, the winners will be revealed, and we'll move on to the "Elite 8".

Had to do a lot of tiebreaking, and it resulted in some interesting pairings. Most people on this list had two's; a couple others as well.

You have 8 voting options.

Pairings (in case anyone isn't familiar)
1 vs. 16
2 vs. 15
3 vs. 14
4 vs. 13
5 vs. 12
6 vs. 11
7 vs. 10
8 vs. 9

The hardest one for me was Torie vs. Afleitch - two great people.

Jmfcst actually had more votes than myself and many others on the list. He's actually lower than everyone else who received the same amount of votes.

I did this in a random draw. If you're not going to trust that, you don't have to take part in this. If I were rigging this, I wouldn't have set myself up against one of the best members of this site in the second round.

Oh, I figured this out. Dur Dur Dur...people voted for both of them, instead of choosing just one, which lowered the number of votes in other match-ups.
