Dear everyone, as you are aware, this post and event continuation is largely overdue. An unfortunate turn of events that has led this situation, factors include technical problems, mis-communication, a lack of access to the internet and the general world being against us. We’ve been continuously throwing dates around and changing dates, which was not very helpful and most problems are due to the fact that there were a lot of flaws in the schedule which we only noticed after MOB had started. So now finally, we’ve decided to cut MOB short to Round 2 simply being the final round.
We’ve also decided to collate all votes from all polls to determine results. This final round will last until Friday 16th August 2013. Without further rants, here is the final round of posts!
ALL PARTICIPANTS PLEASE NOTE THE NEW DATE OF THE POLL CLOSURE.
