    What makes you the person to take over this?

    Start your own competition.

      I would try to contact Scott.

      Scott initiated vB BotM and I think it's a sign of disrespect if you overtake.

      Never ever thought that I had to agree with UHN_ED though

        The fact that I'm the only person that has ever showed initiative to be Scott's backup to keep this competition running whenever he had no time to be online or whatever else there may be.

        I wouldn't be taking over, I'd be filling in temporarily just for the sake of this competition staying alive and going on time. I don't really care about the position myself, I just want to prevent seeing this thing go down because Scott couldn't make it on time or has whatever $issues that prevent him from being online. Who is to suffer if someone else writes all qualifiable names on notes, folds them up, tosses them all in a hat and picks out 5 notes at random? You won't notice any difference except for the fact that it doesn't say s.molinari on the left, but something else. *GASP* THE HORROR!


        seriously though, what does it matter, as long as we're keeping BotM alive...

                I agree. There's no point in jumping the gun. Scott's been delayed in the past, and there's absolutely no reason or urgency in this matter. It's better to let it lapse than have someone jump in and try to "fix" something that's not really broken. Just a bit bent.

                Kura said "If there are no objections..." and I clearly count a few, including mine. So let's just wait. This isn't a life-or-death situation.

                  No-one should be taking over this. I for one will not be voting on this competiton unless it has been organised by Scott. No-one should be doing it aside from Scott. If he is getting delayed than fair enough. We don't know his circumstances and i'm sure he'll have everything ready on time. There's still one day and a bit before November...

                    There's approximately less than one day left, now. With Scott not responding to pm's at all, one would reckon something at least semi-serious might be up. Who knows how much longer it'll take.

                    I really don't see the point of objecting. It's only in everyone else's benefit if I do it, for then I'll no longer have a chance myself. If I don't do it, chances are big I'm gonna be in the last 5. The only benefit for me here is that this competition starts on time, and not halfway through november which is rather unfair to everyone.

                    Mist, you have absolutely no argument whatsoever.

                    Either way, I won't do anything, but I've yet to see a real reason or argument against it.

                      I agree. Hopefully everything is ok with Scott, but I see no harm in waiting for him.

                      It's not your contest. That's the point people are trying to make.

                        does it really matter? I know i'm not going to have a heart attack if the botm contest is delayed a couple days.

                          Oh god, you're right. There will be DEATH AND DESTRUCTION when someone else grabs 5 notes at random...

                            It's about principle than anything else. Try reading the other posts, and you'll see that quite a few people feel the same way (about how *you* should not be the one doing it)....That should tell you something.

                                Hey,


                                While I've been waiting for 3 months to have the vbulletin.com/award page updated, I'd still like to give him the benefit of the doubt.. He's promised he was going to do that for me a couple of times, and hopefully it will be soon. Probably just going through alot of personal stuff, I know I've had similiar situations so I've been willing to wait a bit.

                                Hmm I see he was 'active' today, hopefully he knows many of us are doing our best to hang in there during his delays... I think he has run the contests with respect and maturity so I'd like to hear his input on this.

                                Regards,
                                -Jason
