Preliminary Round, Heat 1

Let the games begin!

A few quick notes before we get to the voting. Rhett, Sarge, and myself will try to get each poll posted early in the afternoon on Mondays and Thursdays, most of the time between 12pm - 3pm ET (9am - 12pm PT). Though there will be times when real life gets in the way, but we will try our best.

For those of you with fursuits that are not in the preliminary round, we have posted dates for each and every face-off in this tournament, all 294 of them. To see what dates your fursuit will be up for voting, just go to the FFFF 2008 page on WikiFur.

What criteria to use turned out to be a big issue last year. This year, coming up what criteria to use is going to be the responsibility of you, the judges. From here, I will give you suggestions, but nobody is obligated to use any of these when voting this year.

- Appearance. This goes well beyond which fursuit is cuter or sexier than the other. Was it well-constructed? Can you see the performer inside? Is there a unique physical attribute associated with the fursuit? Does it look good or out-of-place?

- Performance. There are many wonderful fursuits out there that just get lost in the crowd because the performer has the personality of a pet rock. There are some fursuits that aren't eye-catching when you room with its owner, but just jump to life when he or she wears it.

- Character. Consider the effort the wearer takes to bring the character of the fursuit to life. Do they stay in character while in fursuit, or do they lose it way too often, letting you get to know more about the performer than the character they are portraying?

- Individuality. There are almost 300 fursuits in this tournament and over 800 in the fursuit database. At that number, it gets harder and harder to stand out from the crowd? Does this fursuit stand out? Is he or she unique? Can you forget the character's name, but everyone knows who you are talking about anyway? Or better yet, are you unable to forget the character's name?

You can use some of these, all of these, none of these, or just vote based on friendships, species, personal preference, and any other factors you come up with. In the end, you, the judge, gets to decide what, if any, criteria you will use.

Finally, a quick reminder, even though it never happened last year, in the event of a tie, BOTH fursuits will advance to the next round.
