I'll make the first nomination.

Organizer: Forza AZ

Reason: I've always enjoyed every tournament of his that I have ever been in. He has a knack for creating interesting formats as well as incorporating real world competition into his ideas (See Formula 1 Tournament). He does a good job with keeping on top of games and in notifying players of their game numbers and passwords.

Nominee: See below

Reason: I hate it because i cant remember his name, and i cant look it up because he got busted for like 30 multis, but his name was Steve something, WAYYYYY back he made some huge tourneys i saw. And even though he cheated in his own tourneys, they looked awesome.

Optimus

I've played in so many of his tournaments, and he makes each of them different and fun. He has inspired me to start my own tourney

Nomination #2 for me:

Organizer: Gozar

Reason: He has always been a pleasant guy. He even goes the extra mile to greet players in each of his tournament games (something I can't do due to sheer number). His Long Walk and Battle North America tournaments run smoothly and efficiently and he is always willing to help up and coming organizers with things that they need.

Thanks, Optimus! :)

Since you and Forza are already mentioned, I will nominate:

1)pjdonald : Keeps the tournaments running smoothly. He(?) even stepped in an completed a tournament that had been abandoned by the creator. (Race to Defend America)

2)Kahless : I do not know what happened to this guy, but he ran a ton of sports themed tourneys. All the ones I participated in ran well and were updated promptly. Until he disappeared.

You can renominate folks if you want. I'm looking to find which people get the most nominations to help in deciding who to include in the poll next week.

Nomination #3 for me:

Organizer: pjdonald

Reason: I have only been involved in one of his tournaments: 3456 League (which has been run smoothly and efficiently from the beginning). I have heard through the grapevine that he has run several other very successful tournaments that were popular while actively running.

Reason: Knowing him for a while is a good thing, but being in a tournament of his is priceless. :)
I'm back after an all too long hiatus.

I'd say Optimus, Forza, and while I haven't played in a Gozar tourney, they look like they're managed with class.

I'm gonna go with Coleman for number 2.

Alright, here's a list of the Tournament Organizers that have been nominated so far. At this point I don't think we have too many to include all of them in a poll, but in case we get more, I've included the number of nominations for each.

Gozar - 2 nominations
Gilligan - 2 nominations
pjdonald - 2 nominations
Forza AZ - 3 nominations
Kahless - 1 nomination
spidey - 1 nomination
Coleman - 1 nomination
Optimus Prime - 5 nominations

Note: If someone has been busted for having over 30 multi's I don't think they should be included on this list. However, if the public wishes it to be differently, they we will include them. Let me know.

I gotta vote for Gilligan. He responds quickly, always pm's people, and keeps the standings updated. What more can you ask for?

I am just starting to get into tourneys but its about 5-6 at the moment.

1. Gilligan-always keeps his standings etc updated and his players informed as to what's happening. Uses different formats to keep from getting stale.
