that doesnt work.. if you want to use my system i used in the midwest you let the 2 battlers pick all 7.. they havto agree upon them. if there is any discrepancy then the person in charge of the judge pool(i assume you) has final say on who fills the slots left empty. if you dont do it that way it'll be 3-3 split and the threadstarter is going to be the definitive vote every time. yes, you can put my name into the judge pool. also, step those credentials up. "not a troll, has posted here before" thats just goofy. get the battlers together and have them nominate people for the judge pool. then inform those nominated, eliminate those who decline, and take a vote to form the final pool of judges.
