It’s time for ISE SLACK MARCH MADNESS 2022! This year, all of the Pokemon on the bracket were chosen by our community members, who were asked to nominate their personal favorites. This time, hearts will break!
The competitions will be decided by popular vote, with votes happening throughout March on Slack. It’s a popularity contest, not a “who would win in a fight” contest, but vote however you want to. Before the voting starts, you can fill out a prediction bracket and try to predict how the voting will go, and which favorite Pokémon will be awarded the crown by ISE Slack.
To vote, just keep checking #general in the ISE slack. You don’t have to make a prediction to participate in the voting, but it’s fun to try and predict how slack will vote, so give it a try!
We will stop accepting prediction brackets when voting ends for the first round, so please get your brackets in ASAP.
3 WAYS TO MAKE YOUR PREDICTIONS!︎
︎︎︎ USE AL’S WEB APP (RECOMMENDED)
Beloved ISE Slacker & podcast co-host Al has made a web page that will let you easily make your predictions, send them to me for scorekeeping, and download as an image. ︎︎ Make sure to fill out the WHOLE THING before submitting. ︎︎ Also, please use a name that people will recognize from Slack. Check it out here:
FILL OUT THE BRACKET ON AL’S SITE
(The image you can download from Al’s app is in night mode, so if you want to print it out, you might want to invert the colors. You can use a free web converter like this to make a more printable version.)
︎︎︎ FILL IN THE EDITABLE PDF
This is less cool than Al’s app, but a good backup. Download the PDF, fill in the bracket with your predictions, and then send a copy to Nick (@burgess) so he can keep score. Make sure it saves correctly with your choices filled in!
Editable PDF to download
︎︎︎ OR PRINT IT OUT AND FILL IT OUT
This is the old fashioned way. Just download this PDF, print it, and fill it out. Send Nick (@burgess) a scan or image of it on Slack:
