I remember it was Dark One, RK85, Cypher, DM, DBD, and me, and I'm not sure who else was involved... who started it.
Unfortunately I'm a little busy as well. But I'll give you guys a hand.

This is how it worked:

Everyone would nominate their 10 favorite characters, from the list we would pick the 64 characters who got more nominations. They would be separated into four different divisions.
Then the characters would be matched up randomly, and the elimination rounds would begin. We would vote for our favorite character from the two, the one character with the most votes would go onto the next round.
So after the first round we would have 32 remaining characters. New matches would be done according to the brackets from the previous round. At the end of this second round we would have 16 characters left. Then the third round.
Then Quarterfinals, Semifinals. And finally we would just get two remaining characters for the big finale. :D

Every match would last a couple of days, so yes, the whole contest would last almost 4 months... you could just post a couple of matches every couple of days so the contest moves on quickly. I'm pretty sure it used to start round this time of the year too.
Oh, very importantly, an image representing each character would be made and used in all matches :D My favorite part.
The first Animetric Anime Character Contest was held in 2003, second in 2004. I don't think there was a third. I think the first one had Vash as the winner and the second one had Arcueid, or was it Onizuka, I'm not so sure. Anyways here's something
Funny, I went looking for some of the stuff I had on the ACC's in my computer and found some of the lists i made to keep track of the contest.

Quote:
North Division
Al Elric vs Ayanami Rei
Bunshichi Tawara vs Ditta
Folken vs Harry McDowell
Hisoka vs Kaname Chidori
Motoko Aoyama vs Mahoro
Roronoa Zoro vs vs Nicholas D. Wolfwood
Scar vs Sagara Sousuke
The Laughing Man vs Sohma Shigure

East Division
Arcueid Brunestud vs Ayase
Chloe vs Edward Elric
Greed vs Haruhara Haruko
Hughes vs Kenzo Tenma
Musica vs Masataka Takayanagi
Roy Mustang vs Osaka
Shinomori Aoshi vs Sai
Vash the Stampede vs Spike

South Division
Alex Luis Armstrong vs Bob Makihara
Dilandau vs Eikichi Onizuka
Guts vs Himura Kenshin
Ippo Makanouchi vs Kintarou Oe
Natsume Maya vs vs Misato Katsuragi
Ryoko vs Portgas D. Ace
Shikamaru vs Saitou Hajime
Vegeta vs vs Sumomo (aka Plum)

West Division
Ashitaka vs Brandon Heat
Dio Eraclea vs Ellie
Hachimaki vs Hiei
Jet vs Kirika Yuumura
Neiji vs Monkey D. Luffy
Sagara Sanosuke vs Roger Smith
Shinobu Maehara vs Sana-chan
Walter vs Tomo

Good times.

Here's a good one, this is the format, an entry for one of the matches:
Quote:
Image VS Image

-------- IMAGE CREDITS --------

Hachimaki >>>> wolfwood
Hiei >>>> Dark One

---------- RULES ----------


* In your opinion, the character you find most interesting/amusing/totally hot/deserving of respect/cool ect... Will get your vote.

* Choose your favorite.

*The one thing I do need to say, is that if you havent seen one of the characters in action, while you can vote based soley on the picture, it might not be 100% fair to do so.

----------- Brief Character Descriptions ------------

Hachimaki: One of the best and most realistic characters created till this date. Hachimaki represented man's dream of conquering the space; he seemed as a really simple character but he was actually a really complex one. He is just an awesome character in every aspect.

Hiei: here comes one of those really cool characters that don't come so often; he is got attitude, strenght, skills, crazy spiky hair, and even a third eye! what else can you ask for in character from a martial arts anime?

-----------------------------------------
My vote? it's easy; Hachimaki is by far a superior character, besides he is from Planetes which is out of YYH's league! :thumbsup:


Yea, Hachimaki is awesome.
So that was a general idea, hope it helps.

Sounds easy enough. I can help with any of it: getting the images, putting up the brackets, etc. Let me know when we begin. 8)

I do like the idea, but I think I am going to hold off for another couple months before doing it. I would like to get some more members on the forum before undertaking such a large contest where only about 20 people would be voting if we currently ran it.

Agreed. We need to recruit the originals. Bring them all back, all the old crew. 8)

Who's part of that? I've heard you're doing some detective work 42317, and I hear Fresnokila checking with his insiders, but we should have a way to contact them all (i.e.-e-mail, etc.) :roll:

We need to get a hold of Koji as well. He's the one that started the new forum when the last one went down, trying to keep things alive. He hasn't posted on the other forum for almost a year now, and doesn't have his e-mail on there so I can't get him that way. He would probably have a lot of info on old BRS members. Not to mention he would probably like to know the forums are actually back up on the site.

I'm trying, but it's a bit hard since I cannot remember many member names. I am trying to reach Ro but I only have her animetric at yahoo adress and until she replies I'm not sure whether this is still a valid address. Any help appreciated.
I'm trying this approach because I hope that she has forum hardcopies/backups somewhere in her drawer and can send me at least the complete BRS member lists.

Let me see, BRS members who haven't joined this forum yet,

Seed of Darkness
Coosh
...Dark Fresno :roll:

I imagine contacting Ro would be the best bet since she probably has a list of all the original members. 8)

Ro doesn't have any info on old members. Looks like we are going to need to find another way to find the BRS members :(

when it comes to coosh and drow, dont think they're coming back in a hurry, drow seems to be sticking to danish anime forums last time i checked and coosh was working hard on his animation/graphics studies. this is a couple of years back though so it might be different now.

Yeah, as murphy said Ro has no data on old members and she does not have some kinda backup files of the old forum.

I've chosen rk85 for today's research and I have restricted my search on websites in English.
There's one on Frumspace (an Israeli community?).
There's an account at Asia Friend Finder. (Someone with more knowledge please check the given data.)
I guess those are the promising spots.
There's an RK85 on an X-Box forum, but that person joined the forum in late 2006 and has so far only two posts, so I guess he's not around much, plus I have to be a member to make contact.
