    Am I the only one who gets: “You do not have priveleges to access this area. ” on this page when they log into Bracketmaker?

  2. Melanie Stewart says:

    So, is it mandatory to register with Bracket Maker this year?

  3. Melanie Stewart says:

    Heads up: “Vanguard” is misspelled as “Vangaurd”

  4. Melanie Stewart says:

    There’s something I don’t get.

    According to the published results the break line to get into the tournament was 17 votes.

    There were 123 comics with 18 or more votes (“Vanguard” was two times and “Non-Adventures of Wonderella” was not included, maybe a retirement) so 5 more were needed. There are 10 comics with 17 votes:

    Think Before You Think
    Wasted Talent
    Diesel Sweeties
    NPC Comic
    O Human Star
    Basic Instructions
    Nerf This
    Multiplex
    Heavenly Nostrils
    Dinosaur Comics

    “Think Before You Think” was selected.

    So far so good, but now the weird thing: the other 4 selected to complete the list are:

    Badnix with 1 (one) votes
    Bubble Fox with 1 (one) votes
    PicPak Dog with 11 (eleven) votes
    Vibe with 4 (four) votes

    How could this be?

  5. not a genius says:

    I am having trouble selecting anything from the list. I click on the box beside the comic’s name and it won’t select the box… so I can’t vote!

  6. Kata says:

    Haha wow! Fey Winds vs Twokinds in the first round? The fur vote will be totally split! Wouldn’t surprise me if whoever won it made it all the way through division, though! (I read both and love both, so ‘fur’ isn’t a slur, I swear. I’m struggling with which to vote for!)

  7. pat says:

    When is the scheduled end of round one voting? That could be a useful bit of information for each round, especially for those donating for their support.

    • Melanie Stewart says:

      It is stated at the end of the page, below the “Donate” button:

      “Voting ends at midnight Eastern Time on Friday night! Good luck to everyone!”

      • TheSkulker says:

        Yes, and there are approximately 52 Fridays each year – which one is the deadline?

  8. Tap2 says:

    Pay for votes is disgusting.

    • pat says:

      Well. You could start a different tournament without a vehicle to raise funds for a charity. Nothing wrong with that, is there?

    • Melanie Stewart says:

      “we’re letting you support … by paying for additional votes”

      ComicMix choose an unfortunate phrasing in my opinion. I rather see them as an incentive to donate reward that ComicMix gives you, like the extra content for Patreon supporters many webcomics do.

      It could be more transparent though.

    • DonatelloFellow says:

      I’m pretty sure SSSS would still be winning without paid votes anyway >_>

  9. Will says:

    No OOTS or Oatmeal? ‘Tis a sad world

  10. Lars_B says:

    When will round 2 start?

  11. pat says:

    Where is round two?

  12. Pumpkin says:

    Um… Round 2 plz…

    Round 2???
    Bueller?

      Ive had sixteen monkeys on tablets ready to vote for 4 days now. The zoo needs them back. Come on already!

    What’s with all the finished and hiatus’d comics? Dominic Deegan ended ages ago (and appallingly, the new webcomic by DD’s author is not even in the list). Nimona and Shortpacked also ended and those are just the ones I know. So many others have posted one-two months worth of content in the whole previous year or much less. The author of Goblins has repeatedly stated he doesn’t want to be part of the contest, AND his comic was in extended hiatus. It is annoying because there are so many emergent (and not so) comics that deserved to be shined a light upon.

    It is a bit disheartening that year after year this kind of things keep happening. You guys need somebody who’s actually into webcomics and can spot outrageous anomalies like those and do a bit of research for the ones they don’t know. I’d gladly do it for free if you opened that possibility but this cannot keep going on like this.

  14. Pylgrim says:

    Correction: After a second look, Star Power (by DD’s author) is actually there. The rest of my argument remains.
