Reminder: if you're going to nominate games, please actually register for the tourney. Otherwise your nominations will be removed.  :)

Yeah, just a warning for people.  Mozilla Firefox sucks, and so does Internet Explorer.  Google Chrome is the way to go if you want to work the site.  I couldn't register with Internet Explorer, but I could nominate games.  Very unusual.

Internet explorer would let me sign up, but wouldn't let me register for the tournament.   Firefox wouldn't let me sign in.  Google crome works great though.  So everything is fine now.  8)

I think it's possible that you were registered in a tourney before and just got confused.  I use firefox primarily and worked without a thought.

Time for game nominations has been extended by a week. Hopefully this will give us more nominations (and give me more time to check for compatibility issues with WolfMAME 0.183). Keep spreading the word!

I'm in.

How do the teams get picked?  Do the "captains" pick from the list of registered users?

Is there any way I can ask you not to pick me on your side?  I want to be a winner for the first time in my life :)

Ghosts and Goblins doesn't seem like a good enough game to be nominated 2x.
In the summer that you came
There was something eating everyone
And the sunshine fund was low
We couldn't greet you with a simple hello

Game nominations will only be accepted for a few more days, so get them in ASAP! And please let me know if you see any problem games on the nomination list; I may not be able to go through the entire list before voting opens!
