Make Your Move 6
>>The Infinite Sakurai Theorem<<
>>The Infinite Sakurai Theorem<<
//The Idea As Stated by Fawriel
"The infinite monkey theorem states that a monkey hitting keys at random on a typewriter keyboard for an infinite amount of time will almost surely type a particular chosen text, such as the complete works of William Shakespeare." -Wikipedia
Now if we assume that there is an infinite number of alternate universes, that means there's also an infinite number of Sakurais, which means that there's an infinite number of Brawls, which means that every character who has ever existed will somehow make it into Brawl!
Now let's bring this totally scientific theorem to its completely illogical conclusion, right?
//What It Means For This Thread
Make Your Move is a contest in which full movesets for characters are submitted to be voted upon at the contests end. The idea behind Fawriel’s quote is that in some alternate universe somewhere, all the characters you wanted in Brawl…are actually in it! Make Your Move is your chance to show, through a full and complete moveset, exactly how any character would play in Brawl!
However, this is not only limited to "realistic" choices for a Smash Bros candidate. In fact, you’re not even limited to actual video game characters, or existing characters at all! Past contests have seen all kinds of submissions! Additional characters from familiar universes like Super Mario and the Legend of Zelda, anime characters, historical figures, and even completely original characters from the creative mind of the moveset maker! In Make Your Move, anything is a valid choice to convert into a Smash Bros character!
This iteration of Make Your Move is run by a collective of participants known as The Palette. We are all well-renowned members of the MYM community, and will to our best to ensure the thread runs smoothly and efficiantly. Each member of The Palette has a title based on a video-game villian and a color, but feel free to refer to us by our SWF names.
There are 10 members of The Palette, though only 5 of these members make official votes on decisions. Those members are:
Hyper_Ridley - Ridley, the Purple
MasterWarlord - Envy, the Green
KingK.Rool - Giovanni, the Grey
Chris Lionheart - The Black Knight
Agidus - Dr.Wily, the Blue
Then there's the review-only members of The Palette:
MarthTrinity - Wesker, the White
Smash Daddy - Ganondorf, the Red
Junahu - Cutesy Beau, the Orange
Tanookie - Dracula, the Brown
BKupa666 - Bowser, the Yellow
Oh, and there's also TheSundanceKid as Boshi, the Zebra Striped, as our PR guy.
>>THE RULES AND WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW<<
There is no limit on the number of movesets you may submit.
Submitting a character that has already been submitted, whether in this contest or a previous one, is permitted, so long as the movesets are significantly different from each other.
Due to the increase in moveset quality standards during Make Your Move 5, all movesets from Make Your Move 1.0, Make Your Move 2.0, Make Your Move 3.0, and Make Your Move 4 may be updated and resubmitted. Resubmitted movesets from Make Your Move 5 may have a maximum of 5 shared moves with their past-contest counterpart.
Movesets should not be reposted under any circumstances. If you have changed or updated your moveset, you are permitted to post a link to it in the thread, but do not repost the moveset.
You may retract a moveset of yours from the contest at your discretion. If you decide to do this, you are expected to 1) completely remove the moveset from the thread, and 2) notify one of the Sins that you are retracting the moveset via Private Message.
Those users who chose to create Story Modes for Make Your Move 6 are expected to do so in their Smash World Forums User Blog, not in this thread.
Any user who is writing a Story Mode may have a link to it added to The Canvas (see below) by requesting said link on The Canvas. The Palette will attempt to keep track of and add all Story Modes to the Arena, but are prone to miss a few here and there.
Story Modes will be voted on at the end of the contest in a similar fashion to movesets.
In order to vote at the end of the contest a user must have made at least 30 posts in the thread, or submitted at least 1 moveset. The Palette reserves the right to remove voting priveledges of those they deem unfit to judge, though this is very rare.
Users are not allowed to vote for their own moveset(s) or Story Mode.
In voting for movesets, users have 30 votes to use, with 6 of those being “Super Votes,” which count as a double vote.
In voting for Story Modes, users have 3 votes to use, and only 1 is a Super Vote.
Users should send a Private Message to one of the MYM6 leaders with their votes, stating the movesets they wish to vote for, along with the author of the moveset, and also specifying which are Super Votes. Votes posted in the thread will not be counted. Voting for Story Modes will be handled similarly, through Private Messages.
PLEASE only vote if you have actually followed the thread and have seen a good enough chunk of the movesets.
The Palette reserves the right to vote among themselves to see if voting priveledges should be taken away from certain individuals as the contest progresses. In the same fashion, the sins also have the ability to make exceptions for notable individuals to give them the right to vote.
The votes received by The Palette from all the eligible voters will determine 35 movesets as the contests temporary “Top 35.”
After tallying up the votes and determining the Top 35, The Palette will commence what are known as the “Picks, Kicks, and Shifts.”
Each member of the Palette is allotted two each of Picks, Kicks, and Shifts.
Picks allow a MYM6 leader to add a moveset to the list that did not make it, at any location outside the Top 10. This allows unrecognized, but deserving movesets, to receive due recognition. Picks must be approved by a majority vote from all of the Sins, and all members of the Palette are required to use both of their Picks.
Kicks allow a MYM6 leader to remove a moveset from the list entirely. This may happen in order to trade out a user’s moveset for one that The Palette feel is better, or to remove a joke moveset from the list. Kicks must be approved by a unanimous vote from The Palette.
Shifts allow a MYM6 leader to transfer a moveset to a higher placement in the list. Shifts must be approved by a majority vote from all of the major members of the Palette.
Picks, Kicks, and Shifts will occur in private amonst The Palette, who will then release to the public the finalized Top 50.
All winners receive bragging rights.
If you seek power in MYM and wish to become a leader in MYM7, placing high certainly won't hurt your chances of becoming one.
Other rewards may become available as the contest progresses.

>>Spam: How to deal with it<<
Do NOT respond to off topic spam/trolling. REPORT IT. Spam is not to be tolerated here. This also means that:
You are NOT to ask for a countdown for a new page. If you simply must have a new page, WAIT FOR IT.
No moveset previews without a reason. If you actually need help with a move or are showing up a crappily done moveset for your character by another person, shoot, but only do it with an actual reason.
No moveset reposts. This includes humurous renamed movesets meant to be a joke.
If you wish to talk social and off topic, use the Official Make your Move SOCIAL group.
The Gentleman's Rules are a list of guidelines that are highly suggested to make Make Your Move a happier, closer community. With this guidelines, people will be encouraged to comment on the previous moveset before posting their own. This will ensure that each set will be recognize and acknowledged without being ignored. These rules won't exactly be enforced nor will there be any real punishment for not following them. Simply keep these in mind while posting so we can help keep Make Your Move a friendly community and make sure that all movesets are recognized for their effort and hardwork!
*1* Please post commentry on the previous set, before posting your own moveset. If the previous set did not follow this rule, you may comment on the one that came before it (although the best thing would be to comment on both)
*2* Please comment on the previous set, before replying to comments about your own moveset
*3* Please leave a minimum of 14 posts between the previous moveset and your own (use the chat to determine whether or not someone else is waiting for a new page)
*4* Please do not criticise other users, in the thread, for not following the gentleman's rules
*5* Please, if you read a moveset, post a comment for it. Even "I read it and liked it" is better than no comment at all
*6* Please, if you have multiple movesets to comment on, don't use more than one post to comment on them.
*7* Please take disagreements lasting more than 3 posts to PrivateMessages, rather than continue to argue in the thread.
Common Sense: Use it. By far the most important rule. Failure to follow this rule will result in your movesets not placing in the top 50, you making no friends, and overall having a miserable time. Break this rule at your own risk. Other side effects may include getting yelled at by MasterWarlord.
