Its not just a popularity contest. Neo has gotten this far because of the merit of his ability as a preformer. This is what he goes to graduate school for, and it is his passion in life. He did not get this far because he is "popular" because he's only been in the fandom for a year. He's gotten this far because he is an amazing preformer, and I am routing for him because he is a dear friend of mine.

I believe it, I'm just saying, when people who don't even know him vote for him because you or someone else said to, that becomes popularity. He's a great performer! Don't get me wrong. But like if I had voted for him without seeing his vids or anything, I wouldn't have been voting for him because I knew he was a great performer, I would have been voting for him because his friends are telling people to vote for him. You know?

Not that I'm saying you shouldn't tell people about him and about the tourney. I wouldn't have seen any of the vids of him on YouTube if you hadn't been rooting for him in your journal. :)

And I tend to take the cynical look at stuff like this anyway. People always vote for their friends, regardless of who their friends are going up against [I know I do]. Especially in this fandom, I think people are going to vote for their friends over any amazing performer, and that kinda makes it a popularity contest, too. Or maybe the best performers have the most friends. haha

At any rate, I think everyone in the top four deserves to be there. I'm not particularly "in" on the fursuit scene anyway. :B I just lurk.

Yeah it's a bit of a popularity contest, but then, to a large extent, so are the presidential elections or any other instance where "candidates" are "voted over" one another en masse. *shrug*

Thanks for the compliments, though! :)

Yah, definately. It wasn't really a shot at this tourney, I was mostly commenting on votes for people over other people in general. :) Stuff like "what's your favorite colour?" is generally unbiased because it's YOUR favorite colour. When it involves a person you're voting on, you tend to vote for people you know, I think. :B

I humbly request that you read this post ( I don't know what everyone else is making of the fursuit tournament, but I make a rather compelling case as to why Neo should win the tournament, any friendships aside. You can agree or disagree, but we're not asking our friends to vote for Neo because he's our friend.

I'm not sure what to say to this comment other than I'd already read that post before I made my comment here.

I'd vote for him if I was a furry and member.

Ah well, I was going to say something clever like "the buck stops here," but either way, it's been interesting to get this far. :)
