Doug: Here are the ground rules -- vote for the costume, not the character. We discussed last week that in the nominations process, there may have been some costumes put forth more for character or character-in-storyline value than for the sheer fashion splendor that is their fightin' duds. If you come down to a real head-scratcher and just think you'd look swell in either super-suit, then break the tie in your own mind in your own way. But let's try to stick to the theme of Dressed for Success.
Doug: In the past, we've run the polls from late Saturday night through Wednesday early in the evening (American central time). We're going to switch it up just a bit, due to the large size of this bracket. Polls will go up on Saturday night as before, but they'll cut off on Tuesday evening. The next round of voting will commence Tuesday evening and cut off Friday night. That will get us through the first round, and then the second round will begin a week from today.
Doug: And if you are reading this and happen to be one of the goofs who messed with our lasts series of polls... please don't do that. This is all in fun, and the last time we did this it didn't end so well. Play nice, please.
Doug: So, use this space today and over the next couple of days to comment on the currently running polls. Also, for today, the general look of the brackets is fair game -- I tried to use small 4-line patterns and keep moving around the entire bracket. Hopefully it's "random-looking". Thanks in advance for your participation!
