Note these changes in the Tournament Rules.

1. In the event of a tie, Fox will choose the winner and winning place order at his sole discretion.

2. Tournament entries will be live for 10 days during which they can be voted and rated.  The is double the normal 5 days a rated match remains live.

3. The ability to get in the match is shortened - with the end date to submit being Feb. 21.  However, you only need to produce 1 match.  If you can't get one match in during a 3 week period, then you probably weren't going to participate anyways, right.

4. Any Member can rate a tournament entry and all ratings are equal.  The only exception to this being that players who enter the tournament cannot rate other players.  Well, I mean you can to show your appreciation about the entry, but your score is void in the final calculation.

Looks like you dropped the no X-rated content rule. Time to write the filthiest thing possible.

Added wording:  A romance rated PG-13 at most, please.  Keep it clean-ish.
