  1. Thanks Bjork to your tribute to GamesBids 2016, and the state of the logo comp. I guess you're also here in hopes of celebrating the winner, but we have the formalities to get through first. Welcome everyone to Curascant, home of the galactic senate and our safe refuge following our timely escape from Hoth. Before we announce the winner, I want to thank all who took part in this year's comp - the competitors as well as all the members who voted. The final round attracted 21 voters. Now, I do have some concerns with voters from both sides - IdiOtiC and dear leader Kim both had me pondering, even if they do fill the eligibility requirements. On the other hand, they do cancel each outrigger out, so I'll allow them... for now. None of this changes the result, though, which in the end was as close as it could get without forcing me to cast a tie-break vote. This means, that with a lead of 11 votes to second place 10, the winner, for the first time in the Logo comp, is woohooitsme83 and Oslo! Congrats woohoo - as I told you just recently, I've though for a while you were a real contender in these contests. Well done for proving me right. And commiserations to Anthony. So close! I thought you had it at this time yesterday. I'm so glad you entered and support these comps, and silver is not to be sneezed at. Both woohoo and Anthony are on the roster for the next round - Summer 2028. We're gonna have a short break and then gather tomorrow to launch that side of it... this time on Earth. Hopefully Thomas Bach will help us with the 2028 proceedings. Sep Blatter's also offered, but only if we can find a non-extraditable country to hold them in. See you all soon.
  2. And now we're down to the final two showdown! In the last round of voting, we finished up with the result: Innsbruck 2, Oslo 5, Reykjavik 6, and Denver 2. On the basis that the combined votes of Innsbruck and Denver would not equal their next nearest rival (Oslo's 5), and in the interests in keeping things moving, the tail-end two are eliminated. Thanks to both aismanggo and mr.bernham for entering - you take out joint Bronze medals. And well done to mr.bernham for polling to choose his final entry. We'll be seeing both of them back to contest the summer section. We had 15 votes cast, all bona fide. Which leaves us with woohooitsme83 and Anthony to battle it out to become the first new names on the winners' board for, well, quite some time (I think it was aismanggo's Toronto win). Good luck to both of you! And it means we're left with a battle of the Scandinavian cities - Norway's capital versus Iceland's. So, to the rules: This voting round will be open for (approximately) 24 hours - it will close after 7am, Tuesday January 5, Sydney time (8pm Jan 4 GMT). 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 vote for their own logo if they wish. Votes are valid if cast by members of GamesBids as of December 1 2015 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. At the close of the poll, the logo with the majority of votes will be declared the winner of the 2030 Winter Games logo comp. I will not vote in this unless a tie-breaker vote is needed. Be fair and sportsmanlike, this is meant to be fun and the entrants all deserve RESPECT. I guess that's it. Let the people decide!
  3. Welcome back everyone. Okay, first things first - results of the actual poll from the last round. We had 14 voters, all valid, cast their choices. We had no majority winner, but two, CobiWenlock's LA-Denver and Glacib's Stockholm, tie for least number of votes. I find tie-breaker votes for tail-enders to be tedious and tiresome, so I'll invoke executive powers here and, sadly, eliminate both. Thanks guys - really good efforts from both of you, but as always the competition is tough. Thanks so much for entering, and we'll see you both back, though, for the summer poll. Which brings us to Hoth. I didn't think I'd set a particularly high bar for it to pass through. I secretly liked the spice it was adding to the vote launch, so was hoping myself it may make it. And I've checked the numbers over and over to see if I could spin a positive result out of them. Sadly, even with all the best skullduggery I might have risked, the best I can get is four votes Yea against seven Nay. And those naysayers included three from members I really had to take seriously - the other competitors. So, I'm sorry Hoth, but the Emperor has given the orders to fire. We all know, however, that it's not the last we'll see of Paul in this year's comp - he'll be tango-ing in the summer rounds. Which leaves us with the four above to contest this next round. The rules for this stage are: This voting round will be open for (approximately) 24 hours - it will close after 7am, Monday January 4, Sydney time (8pm Jan 3 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 vote for their own logo if they wish. Votes are valid if cast by members of GamesBids as of December 1 2015 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 remaining contenders.
  4. Happy New Year everyone. Park your X Wings and take a seat as we gather for the launch of our 2030 Winter Olympic Games logo poll. Just a reminder, this is an actual war zone, so keep your lasers and light savers handy. And rug up - it gets to -60c when the sun goes down. You sure don't wanna be caught out in that. Baron is selling wampa skin rugs and jackets for those who came unprepared - best prices this side of Mos Eisley, and an extra 10 per cent discount if you order his book as well (apologies if I left you holding a crate of smog masks, Myles). Speaking of Mos Eisley, a big hand to the Mos Eisley Cantina Band for our opening number. Anyway let's get down to business. We gather here to decide our winning logo for the 2030 Winter Olympic Games. Thanks to all entrants... well, all six of you... for taking the time to submit your works. Those who've been following may notice that option D is a late, as yet unseen, entrant. We have woohooitsme83 to thank for that. And I've taken the liberty of deciding that mr.bernham's Winter A design from his own poll is his designated entrant in this vote. If he has any complaints... tough! Anyway, with only a neat half dozen final entries, it's a bit superfluous to go through a semi final short list stage. So, let's get directly onto the final rounds and standard IOC voting procedures. The rules for this stage are: This voting round will be open for (approximately) 24 hours - it will close after 7am, Sunday January 3, Sydney time (8pm Jan 2 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 vote for their own logo if they wish. Votes are valid if cast by members of GamesBids as of December 1 2015 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. I guess that's it. Engage hyperdrive and I'll see you on the other side!
