This is the Nominations Thread.
The Rules for Nominations:
1) Nominate your five favourite moments from the season in ranked order.
2) These nominations will be assigned the following points:
5th = 1
4th = 2
3rd = 3
2nd = 4
1st = 5
3) Nominations will be seeded based on their total number of points. If required, nominations with the same number of points will be separated by: most separate nominations; highest individual nomination; most instances of highest individual nomination; most instances of next highest individual nomination etc.
Nominations that cannot be separated by this method will first be ranked according to the nominators’ standing in Jonah Wall’s Most Influential Posters list, or by date of entry if none of the nominators are not on that list.
4) This thread will remain open to post nominations until 7pm on Saturday 17th July. Nominations will not be counted after this time. Yes, Cloud, that means you.
5) Any nominated moment must have occurred between 17th August 2020 and 4th May 2021.
The Tournament Format
1) The tournament entries will be seeded according to the above format.
2) Entries will be entered into a one-on-one match in which posters vote for their personal favourite of the two Moments. The Moment with the most votes will proceed to the next round. In the event of a draw, the higher-ranked Moment will progress, according to the same criteria as detailed above.
3) The final tournament format will be dependent on the number of nominations and qualifying. If an applicable number of entries are nominated (16, 32 etc) all entries will go straight into the tournament finals. If not, there may be a pre-tournament qualification Battle Royale for the lowest-ranked entries. This will be determined and confirmed based on the number of entries and rankings when this thread is closed.
What Constitutes A Moment?
First and foremost: this is NOT a competition for on-Island events only, as previous tournaments have been. This is a completely snooker-wide contest.
With that in mind, favourite moments can be anything from:
- A great shot
- A great performance/match
- A great tournament
- A social media post/exchange
- A funny occurrence in a match
- A player getting onto the tour (this includes Q School from last season as they will be deemed on the tour from 17th August 2020)
- A funny image
- An interview/documentary/article
- a Snooker Island event/occurrence/thread etc
And so on, as long as it is related to snooker in some way. If you are unsure whether something counts feel free to ask.
Nominate your 5 favourite things that happened this season related to snooker, and I’ll make a tournament out of them. Closing date 7pm Saturday 17th July 2021.
