Okay, here are my thoughts:

- First of all: Thanks to everyone who voted &supported their favorite redheads! You guys rule! http://redheads.b1.jcink.com/uploads/redheads//post-22-1274316687.gif
- When the nomination process dragged so badly I was worried that we might not be able to pull off a torny this year - or ever again! But all we need is to shorten that procedure. Maybe next time we the moderators will come up with more names to begin with. Or we could have the facebook crowd drop some names.
- But then our loyal members got active and we had the most consistant number of votes ever: 20+ in every single round! That makes this torny one of the most successful ones we had - participation-wise.
- Alot of fresh blood in the field this time!
- Big winners: Bryce Dallas Howard, Sophie Turner, Jane Levy & obviously Rose Leslie.
- Makes sense that the 2 finalists represent sci-fantasy geek shows Dr. Who & Game of Thrones. We are a community of nerds after all. wink.gif
- I never watched GoT actually, but I know it's extremely popular. So Rose Leslie doing so well is not a suprise. I didn't even realize she and Sophie Turner are both in the show until someone mentioned it when they faced each other in the torny.
- I am shocked that Barbara Meier and Julianne Moore didn't even get nominated!
- The big final was a suspenseful back-and-forth see-saw match. I always prefer fresh first-time winners, but I guess it was just Karen Gillan's time again - if there ever was a lady to win it twice it's her!
- I need a vacation now! laugh.gif

I don't know if I will be able to keep up that level of work with the tournament in the future. But that depends on the stress on my job.

In a few weeks I would like to run a big experiment though... wink.gif

Sorry I wasn't able to participate in the Finals, but I would've been very happy with either Karen or Rose!

This year's Tourney belongs to the Scots!!! http://redheads.b1.jcink.com/uploads/redheads//post-22-1274316687.gif http://redheads.b1.jcink.com/uploads/redheads//post-22-1274316899.gif

Thanks so much for these kind words and the appreciation. The way we run this tournament now with all these headshots and stuff is alot of work, but it's fun.

Would you guys change anything next time? Any suggestions?

Yeah it was a great tournament well done, Red Gold. If I was to change anything it would be with the nominations. Maybe give people more nominations -- like 5 or something so it can be set up quicker.

Agreed. 3 picks are too few. Each year I have a list of like 10 ladies I want to see compete. I always wait till like other guys have dropped some of those names, before I step forward with 3 names of my own.

Maybe the final 4, the pool winners, should always be set for the next year.

And again: facebook could be helpful in shortening the nomination process.

Well done RedGold, your efforts are much appreciated.
Was it just me or were there alot of close tie votes this year?
Even the final decided with a 1 vote vote difference.
To bad Rose didn't win, but congratulations to Karen!

Even though we always had 20+ voters in each round, we almost always had to break ties!

And honestly: Karen's win is rather "fishy". I bet: Had we left the final round open a little bit longer, more GoT fans might have supported Rose Leslie, because GoT with Rose is relevent and Dr. Who starring Karen is a thing of the past. Karen just won because she is an all-time favorite on this forum. But it was supposed to be Rose's big victory. So maybe I closed the last round prematurely and hastily.

Then again i find it hilarious that Conan, who broke the final tie, has a winking Sophie Turner as an avatar. It's like Sophie got her revenge on Rose for getting eliminated by her in the semi-finals! http://redheads.b1.jcink.com/uploads/redheads//post-22-1274316962.gif

Maybe I'm being biased, but extending the voting time would give sick (read: ill) old farts like me a bit more time to participate. And setting a min/max number of nominees would help get the process started quicker. The Facebook tie-in to attract interest in new membership seems to be working too. I've noticed a couple of new names on Kari Byron's thread alone, I'm sure the other Goddesses also have new admirers. smile.gif

Yeah, I am one of those who came late to the party, but love the choices and to have Karen Gillian win is awesome. Redheads are, as we all know, the best women on the whole planet. Redhead Goddesses Forum is THE PLACE to go to find them.

Can't thank you guys who keep this site going for the rest of us fans.

Cheers.

Karen's a worthy goddess. Hair, face and those long legs.
