veto competition: "the importance of veto"
 
following is a form that must be filled out entirely and submitted. the form will ask you if you're willing to do various things or willing to accept various losses in order to rack up points that will go toward winning this veto competition. there are also things you can earn by giving away points for this competition, if you do not feel that veto is that important. thus i have named the ompetition: "the importance of veto", because it is designed to test each person to see how badly they want the veto for this round, as well as set up certain advantages and disadvantages for cetain players who accept them, advantages and disadvatanges that will come into play later in the game.
 
following the form is a detailed explanation of each individual field on the form, so that you are not mistaken about any of the questions on the form.
 
the most points you can get toward winning this competition is 15, the least is 0.
 
this form must be submitted by 10:30 pm, board time, on january 8th. i'll announce the winner a 1/2 hour after the competition closes. it's going to be a quick one.
 
in the event of a tie for the veto win, a miniature trivia challenge will be played by the players involved in the tie. if it is required, at 12:00 pm on the 9th, i will release one question on this website on this page. then, i will release three more in 3 two-hour increments. the winner of that, by score and time, will become the veto holder.
 
ALL FIELDS ARE BINDING. IF YOU AGREE TO SOMETHING BELOW, IT IS ABSOLUTELY BINDING. even if you don't win the veto competition, everyone must do everything they agree to below. even if more than one person agrees to do the same thing, everyone must do everything they agree to do.
 
unless otherwise stated, none of your responses to the following fields will become public knowledge untill this season has ended.
 
enter yes or no in each of the following fields, except for field number 11, which you will also have to enter a number as well as yes or no. "yes" means you will accept the field's proposal and take or lose the points noted for each field.

1. if you give up your right to vote in the round 2c elimination round, you will earn one point. this means that you will not be able to cast an elimination vote for round two.
 
2. if you'll give up your right to be voted back into the game, in the event that you are eliminated before the bring back round, in round 5d, you'll earn one point. this means that no matter when you are voted out, you will have 0 chance of getting back into the game until the next season begins.
 
3. (this one is designed to make people not like you. you'll have to be or act fully honest when fulfilling the requirements of this one). if you will publicly state, on the game thread, that you do not like anyone in this game, you will earn one point. you must say this to each player, personally, with a unique insult or something you do not like about each individual player. this must be done within 48 hours of submitting this form or you will be eliminated from the game all-together.
 
4. (this one is designed to make people not like you.) if you take away 3 veto points (not to be confused with points for this competition in particular) from everyone in the game other than yourself, you will earn one point. if you accept this one, it will become public knowledge that you did so as soon as this competition is over and the results are revealed.
 
5. you must say "yes" in field number 4 in order to say "yes" in this field. (this one is designed to make people not like you.) if you take away another two veto points (not to be confused with points for this competition in particular) from everyone in the game other than yourself, you will earn another one point.  if you accept this one, it will become public knowledge that you did so as soon as this competition is over and the results are revealed.
 
6. if you give up your right to compete in and win the next veto competition, in round 2b, you will earn two points. this means that you may still compete in it, but you will not be able to win the veto.
 
7. this field is seperate from field number 6. you can still answer "yes" in this field even if you answered "no" in field number 6. if you give up your right to compete in and win the third veto competition, in round 7b, you will earn two points. this means that you may still compete in it, but you will not be able to win the veto.
 
8. if you agree to be automatically nominated in the next round, you will earn two points. this means that unless you win PTN1 (not PTN2) in round 2a, you will be automatically nominated for elimination in round 2c. it is important to keep in mind, here, that if you have not bid away your elligibility to compete in the next veto round (in other words, if you said "no" to field number 6) then winning the veto in that round would still grant you the ability to take yourself off of the nomination block and replace yourself with another player. however, if you did answer "yes" to field number 6, and you answer "yes" to this field, the only thing that can save you from being nominated (but not necessarily eliminated, because that comes after voting) would be winning PTN1.
 
9. if you settle with only being able to go to final two and no further, you will earn 3 points. this means that you can make it to final two, but you will be automatically inelligable to win the game, overall. so in essence, you'd be playing for 2nd place.
 
and now to entice ya'll with things you can earn if you don't feel that the veto is of much importance right now. afterall, this competition is also designed to set those without a strong alliance, those who need the veto, at a disadvantage from the get-go. it is sour and can cause much ill-will, but it is still true that this is a popularity vs. un-popularity contest, as i've heard so many complain about. but in the end, the only winner of a completed VOC to date has been someone from the arguably unpopular side.
 
10. if you are willing to give up points toward winning this competition, you may exchange them for veto points that will go toward winning vetos in the rounds that there are no veto competitions in (you will learn more about this later or a little bit now by reading about veto points). once again, do not mistake veto points for points used toward winning this particular competition. they are two compeltely different things. each competition point (points for this competition) will exchange for one veto point. make sure to tally up the points you have earned for this competition so that you don't try and exchange too many, though you can exchange all of your competition points for veto points, which would pretty well ensure you a veto in the future. i know this veto points thing is a tad-bit confusing, but once they actually come into play and you are able to use them, it will all be easily explained. in this field, enter "yes" or "no" then the number of points you'd liek to exchange if you answered "yes".
 
11. for an unsaid advantage (but a good advantage, trust me) in the the next veto competition, in round 2b, you can give up two points. this means that 24 hours before the veto competition starts, you will recieve an email that will give you a heads-up about and a hint on winning the veto competition.
 
12. for a very helpful hint to solving the secret immunity puzzle once it is published at the beginning of round 2a, you may give up two points. this means that 24 hours before the immunity puzzle is released, you will be emailed an extremely helpful hint towards solving it and winning yourself a secret immunity.
 
 
thnx for playing,
emily.
