Collusion of any kind with your competitors is considered cheating. If the Tournament Director determines that any competitor is colluding to manipulate the results or intentionally underperforming, the collaborating players may be immediately disqualified. This determination is to be made at the sole discretion of the Tournament Director. Anyone disqualified in this manner forfeits all rights to any titles or prizes they might have otherwise earned for that tournament.

Hey dudes and dudettes and furries, I'm here to announce that I (pidgezero_one) will be running official "Teammate finder" and "MM finder" threads this year in order to make it easy for you guys to find those things! I ran the MM finder thread last year and I think I did an okay job of keeping it up-to-date and readable. I'll be making it closer to the date.

I might also be making a "Who Has Space In Their Hotel Room?" thread to hopefully prevent as much last-minute scrambling as possible, if you guys would use something like that. Thoughts?

The "Who has space" is a good idea. Useful for those who are looking for housing/hoteling.

I will look into it.
