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!
