VotDs
Someone: This has been the only match of the contest that Iíve really had to mull over. If this were any other match, I would be able to make a choice as quickly as I have been up until this point. However, now the championship is at stake, and thereís much to consider hereÖ

First thereís octo. Heís been around forever, but Iíve only been here a short time, so Iíll consider his past as ancient history. If you consider what octo is doing right now, itís really incredible. He assumes not only the role of rankings updater, but proof manager, WR page updater, monthly/quarterly/yearly awards maestro, and contest writeup guy as well. And considering the issues that updater has apparently been having the past couple months, this is quite a heavy load. His activity in the eliteís social realm, from GLB to chat and beyond, is also outstanding. He takes on all of this responsibility despite the very busy life he has away from the elite. One would be hard pressed to find someone who puts as much time and effort into the community and is as busy outside of the elite as octo. And on top of all this, octoís a swell guy, fun to chat with, and a solid gamer to boot!

Then thereís Wouter. I wonít go deep into his gaming accomplishments, because those are self-evident. Itís hard to imagine what the GE records would look like today without his contributions to the game. Like few others, he also possesses champion ability in PD. However, I donít consider Wouter for his gaming ability nearly as much as I do for other reasons. He was the very first person from the elite that I talked to and got to know well. Itís possible that I wouldnít have joined the elite if it werenít for him. I remember a few years ago when I was still an outsider just lurking and going for Duel 9. Wouter gave me some encouragement and was the first to congratulate me when I got the time. Heís a very unusual guy, not afraid to express his thoughts in unedited Wouterese. It seems like this is a reason why some people donít like him, as he has a knack for rubbing people the wrong way, but for me itís the opposite. His posts on the boards can be quite funny and are never dull for sure. I find him great to chat with, and he always seems up for a good Euro style smiley-fest.

Both of these guys deserve the championship crown, but unfortunately there can only be one. Always a contest power, Wouter has been due for a win for quite some time, but octo is just as deserving after making the finals two consecutive years. Also, I think both of them have voted for me in all of my matches! So who will it be? Well, Iíve made up my mind, and my vote goes to...


Someone: today will be a historic day in the world of summer contests. a brand new champion will be crowned. both guys deserve to win due to their huge contributions to speedrunning and the site in general.wouter being the better rareware gamer of the 2 and phil for being totally dedicated of late to making the site 100% legit. its a very clsoe call, but of late i have come to think of phil as a true friend and so i am voting for him, in the imortal words of illu, AWESOME!!!

Someone: octo. A Wouter win would be fine; he's put many years into the community and into GE, and it's neat that the Bronze -> Gold streak works so consistently, but I feel bad for octo's once again getting owned by a Championship voter shift. He's had a fantastic year in terms of running the updates, Chatting, posting, doing match writeups... really would like to see him take home the Gold for himself today.
