This is an update to reflect the state of the contest as of this Tuesday, August 30th, 2016 as of 11:49 EST:
1.) I have now sent PM's to twenty individuals with respect to payment arrangements. However, one of those PM's was to WizardofNothing and another one was to Paradigm, who suggested he might not play this year.
Therefore, with respect to WizardofNothing's donation to the contest, we are currently projecting eighteen individuals (besides ourselves) playing, which is insufficient for him to make the donation.HOWEVER:
2.) I have not yet sent PM's to Members who have been here for less than a year and that have ten or more posts. While I will do that either today or tomorrow, that method of recruiting, historically, has yielded roughly one player for every fifty PM's sent, so strictly speaking, I am not counting on getting any players that way.ALTHOUGH:
If you know anyone who would be interested in this game, or if there is anyone you would like to PM, feel free. Even if it is a friend or family member, simply have them sign up for the site. Since the money is being paid in advance for the entries, there are no questions of honesty/dishonesty/welching to worry about because no-pays will simply have no entry.FINALLY
When the payments for entries start coming in, I will create an OFFICIAL THREAD with an updated list of who has paid. The OFFICIAL THREAD will also contain another copy of the rules and well as Lines and Standings. I will be the only poster in the OFFICIAL THREAD. This thread, when all of that happens, shall be labeled the, "Discussion thread."
