Correct, at 3:05pm Eastern US (August 11, 2017, 03:05:00 PM) this will lock up and any posts or edit made after then will be invalid, regardless of whether an award's specific results have been made public yet or not.

GTR Results are done!  Congratulations to Smasher for getting the gold, and also to a whole bunch of others for annihilating the guesses.  We'll have to throw more curveballs next year so it's not as easy :bowser:

Speaking of curveballs and everyone doing fairly equally well, some people opted to not do pretty much any of the legwork for their own guesses and copied someone else's for like 98% of it.  In the past we have straight-up disqualified people for having 100% copy of someone else's results, but it's only happened literally twice in the last like 5 years.  This year for some reason there were a lot of tables copied from one another, leading to similar guesses and subsequently similar results.  This is absolutely not in the spirit of the game, but we also didn't explicitly ban it, so on a technicality a few of you get off with not having all of your guesses voided!  Lucky you~  I'm pretty sure a big reason for a lot of the similarities is because a lot of people don't bother posting their guesses until a more forum-savvy person comes along to post their guesses in a neatly formatted table, which then everyone else goes, quotes, copies, and fills in their own options, and having the tendency to just leave the guesses for a bunch.  If you are one of those people who do that, just copy whatever table design you like right now and save it in a notepad document to use next year, because starting in GTR 2018 the guess submissions will be private to keep the spirit of the game intact, and less of a copy/paste token free-for-all grab fest.

As always, we are human and doing hundreds of entries between 3 separate documents to calculate points can only be so precise.  We double check what we've got, but sometimes things slip through, so if you notice an error please send me a message about it and I will promptly recheck to confirm and edit the results accordingly.  None of these mistakes should be game-breaking, and just a factor of a couple points, but a token is a token  :wario:


See you all next year!

for what it's worth, while I copy the template because I'm lazy with formatting, I do go over every guess and the reason why I have the same as smashers for a lot of them is simply because I had the same guesses as her lol

the exception ironically is community awards where I don't know what to put

but if you weren't referring to me never mind I guess lol

I can only speak for myself, but I didn't copy results from anyone else, but mine ended up sharing some similarities to Smasher's simply because we both looked at 2016's results to guess this year's, largely assuming it'd be pretty similar to last year which it was. My procedure or the Mario Awards for an individual award was to look at the nominees, think of a guess, look at last year's results and change my guess accordingly, type my guess, and then look at other people's guesses, only second-guessing myself because of their guesses a few times. However, for Fail and Community Awards, I did the same procedure but without looking at other people's guesses until I was done all of the guesses, thereby mostly removing second-guessing on their account.

Tl;dr I didn't steal any guesses but mine are similar to others because we all used 2016's results to predict this year's. This may be true for other's as well.
