OK, I got a PM from the contestant explaining that their laptop has been away for repairs and aren't allowed to access BCB at work. I have their next five now.

Can we get a consensus on this?

I'm inclined to agree. There is nothing stated in the rules about late lists enforcing walkovers (indeed, if there were we'd have lost quite a few competitors over the years) and the competitor can, I believe, be taken on good faith with pretty decent reasons for the delay. Perhaps there should be a new rule added next year but until then let's get on with it.

The competition will be a little delayed. We'll live.

LA COPA doesn't stand out as well and I've noticed that a few (well, at least 1 person) have signed in and voted for matches 1 to 4 and presumably has not spotted matches 5 to 7 lurking below.


It's very confusing . Last night I found myself ordering a paella when I meant to vote B.

I was just trying to inject a bit of colour. :(

I get quite bored with this job at times, you know. :x
