Thanks to Nakamoto Kyu for that toe-yapping version of Sukiyaki. And thanks to palette for suggesting it. And thank you Palette and Soyoshi, for hosting our deliberations. Ladies and Gentlemen, Mesdames and Monsieurs, Herr Bach, Welcome back to Yoshi's Island. We've reached back here quicker than I expected. Luckily our graphics guys were ready. And luckily for the people of Nagoya and Tokyo, we've saved countless deaths by satisfying Godzilla by choosing a winning logo in the nick of time and enticing the big lizard to settle down with Soyoshi and family. We had a super quick resolution to the comp - the first time, I think, that our winner was settled in the second round of final voting. To announce who it was that won the hearts of the majority so quickly, I'd ask Herr Bach to get ready with the envelope. His speech writer was caught a but unprepared, though, so we'll leave the stage-German behind for this one. Okay, the big moment. The winner is............ Paul! Congratulations paul, who returned to the comp this year after a hiatus (he almost joined, but then withdrew late last year) to claim his unprecedented fifth title. So well done mate and well deserved. Certainly it was always the one to beat. Thanks for entering. In the end, the results were: A (nzl) - 8 votes B (mr.bernham) - 3 voyes C (paul) - 17 votes D (aismanggo) - 2 votes All votes were valid and the winner crowned by an absolute majority. So that's it for yet another logo comp. Thanks to all who participated this year, by entering or critiquing or voting. Hope you had fun. And hopefully I'll see you all back again for at least one more.
With 30 members voting, we're now down to a top four in the Tokyo 2020 logo comp. Unfortunately, we now see barrack's design drop out! Thanks for entering barrack, it was great to see a past champ entering again, and making the finals in both sections. Well done! The final results were: A (nzl) - 10 B (barrack) - 1 C (mr.bernham) - 3 D (paul) - 12 (one vote from stir.ts re-allocated from E to D) E (aismanggo) - 4 (see above) All votes cast were valid. Okay, onto round 2: This voting round will be open for (approximately) 24 hours - it will close after 7am, Thursday January 15, Sydney time (8pm Jan 14 GMT). Voting will now be conducted in rounds until one entry has an absolute majority and is declared the winner. In this and following rounds, the logo with the lowest number of votes will be eliminated at the close of the poll. Vote in the poll for your favourite logo. You have ONE vote, so make it count. Your vote is public and can be seen by all. Entrants MAY now vote for their own logo if they wish. Votes are valid if cast by members of GamesBids as of December 1 2014 with a bona fide posting record. I will rule on the validity of any suspicious or disputed votes, or who constitutes a bona fide voting member. I will not vote in this, or any subsequent rounds, unless a tie-breaker vote is needed. Be fair and sportsmanlike, this is meant to be fun and the entrants all deserve RESPECT. Let's see if anyone's preferences short intros round. Good luck to all our remaining entrants! __ Godzilla watch: Sorry to say, Osaka has copped the lizard's wrath! The rampage is relentless. The people of Tokyo, and the cities in its path, are praying we find a winner quick. Make it so!
And now it's down to five. We had a strong voting turnout of 30 members having their say. I discount one vote from barrack's (an own vote), but otherwise all the rest were valid. The results were: A (Thatsnotmypuppy) - 8 B (Anthony) - 3 C (nzl) - 15 D (MissEurasia)- 3 E (barrack) - 10 (1 own vote deducted) F (Mr Bernham) - 11 G (OlympicFanDarcy) - 2 H (Griff) - 3 I (JMarkSnow) - 3 J (DannyelBrazil) - 9 K (Scotguy) - 7 L (baron-pierreIV) - 7 M (Afiqnadzir) - 9 N (woohooitsme83) - 5 O (aismanggo) - 14 P (paul) - 19 Q (Usa2024olympics) - 2 C, E, F, O and P make it through to our short list. Congratulations to our finalists, and commiserations to all who missed the cut - as usual some great ones cut, and some surprise omissions (and sorry woohoo that I gave you the kiss of death - sigh! I still think it deserved to go further). Okay, down to business. The rules for this stage are: This voting round will be open for (approximately) 24 hours - it will close after 7am, Wednesday January 13, Sydney time (8pm Jan 12 GMT). Voting will now be conducted in rounds until one entry has an absolute majority and is declared the winner. In this and following rounds, the logo with the lowest number of votes will be eliminated at the close of the poll. Vote in the poll for your favourite logo. You have ONE vote, so make it count. Your vote is public and can be seen by all. Entrants MAY now vote for their own logo if they wish. Votes are valid if cast by members of GamesBids as of December 1 2014 with a bona fide posting record. I will rule on the validity of any suspicious or disputed votes, or who constitutes a bona fide voting member. I will not vote in this, or any subsequent rounds, unless a tie-breaker vote is needed. Be fair and sportsmanlike, this is meant to be fun and the entrants all deserve RESPECT. Good luck to our final contenders! In the meantime, Godzilla has resurfaced in the south and crushed Hiroshima. His last sighting was on the road to Osaka. We lost Pikachu, so only my tie-break by me, or a speedy resolution, stands between Tokyo and destruction.
Okay, hit it Kirsten, Thanks to the beautiful and talented Kirsten Dunst for helping us all Turn Japanese for the summer leg of the GamesBids Tokyo 2020 Logo Comp. And welcome everybody to Yoshi's Island, which I presume is somewhere in the seas around Japan. Soyoshi and Palette have kindly agreed to host us on the island for the duration of the 2020 vote, and in return have a special task for us to complete during our time in pixel land. But more on that later. More to the point, it's now time to decide our short list of five entries from the 17 Tokyo 2020 logo designs submitted above. All our heavy-hitters from the 2022 vote are back, plus a few new entrants. There's a couple of new designs there also that GamesBidders will not have seen yet. Entry O is from the 2022 WOG logo winner, aismanggo. Mr Bernham has submitted a new updated entry (F). Entry L is from a long-established member who has requested he remain anonymous for the time being. Let's see what you think of the design before unmasking our last-minute entrant. So, onto the rules: Vote in the poll above for your nominations for the Tokyo 2020 shortlist from the selections above. You may vote for UP TO Five (5) member's logos from the selections. You may vote for less than five, but if you vote for more your votes will not be counted. Entrants MAY NOT vote for their own logo. You MAY post your reasons for your decisions, but try to be respectful please. Voting will last approximately 24 hours. The poll will close after 8am Tuesday January 13 2015, Sydney time (9pm January 12 GMT). After this time, the votes will be collated, and the top five logos in terms of votes will proceed to the first elimination poll round. In the event of a tie for fifth (or higher) place giving us more than five logos, all tied logos will also move on to the elimination rounds. Voting is limited to members of GamesBids as of December 1, 2014 with a bona fide posting history. The judge's (my) decision on what constitutes bona fide, and the validity of votes, is final. I'll decide any other rulings on the fly if necessary. I will vote in this round. Those are the basic rules. Also, as mentioned, Soyoshi has a special request while we're on the island. It seems Godzilla has been awoken from the depths and is very impatient for a Tokyo 2020 logo to be chosen. Every round we go without crowning a winner, he will lay a new city in Japan to waste in his fury and frustration (he has already razed Fukushima as this poll starts)! Only when we have a majority verdict and a logo winner, will he quieten down and agree to come to Yoshi's Island and leave the home islands alone. He has about five stops before he destroys Tokyo itself - can we choose a winner before he does so and so save the 2020 games? It's up to you to stop him - and the only way to do that is to reach consensus in time. We have only two ways to delay him if the voting rounds take too long for his taste: I can play my special tie-break card if we are forced to a tiebreak run-off: Or, any round in which Pikachu is still alive in the comp, he may (if Puppy lets him off he leash) delay Godzilla from smashing the next city in his path into smouldering atomic rubble. Okay everyone. Satisfy Godzilla! Save Tokyo! And crown our next Logo Winner! Good luck to all our entrants!
