Dave, you should stop using the word "picks" and instead say "predictions".  I was very confused too.  So we PREDICT who we THINK will win on the bracket site, but we VOTE for WHICH SONG WE LIKE BETTER here, right?

tough choice on that one


Oof.  Listen to Friday\'s (Lion\'s Den) Dig > Beef Barley, Dig "sandwich" mishap and the choice will become clear.

there\'s the word i was looking for. good call wolf. you truly are verbal vinegar for the biters down at the salad bar.

for those of you who aren\'t getting the confirmation emails (has anyone got one successfully?), there\'s this:

Important Notes About Your Email Address
First note that we do not sell your personal info to anyone. We hate spam just as much as you do, but there is a good reason why we require email verification. It is for the purpose of helping to prevent abuse of our website, which is necessary because we are allowing anyone to enter content. In this way there is at least some level of accountability.

So, make sure you have entered your address correctly or else you will not receive your password. In fact, that\'s why we have created this info box, due to the number of bounced emails we have received on a daily basis.

There are a variety of reasons why you might not receive the email:

    * If you use anti-spam or "junk mail" filtering, these filters are not always 100% accurate and may erroneously identify legitimate emails as being junk. Check your filtered mail inbox and also add the bracketmaker.com domain to your whitelist (trusted senders) if you have that option.

    * AOL users in particular: Don\'t forget the @aol.com part. Also, your email address is not a website so it does not begin with "www". 8-)

    * Former @Home users: Apparently some of you haven\'t heard that your former user@home.com email address is no longer valid. If you have not yet received notice about that, please find out what your new email address is before attempting to register.

    * Typos: Be sure to proofread your typing. One simple mistake is all it takes for your password to end up in limbo land.

    * Some email providers automatically deactivate accounts if they have not been used after a certain number of days. If you haven\'t checked your email recently, send yourself a test message before submitting this registration form.

If you do not receive the email promptly, try sending yourself a test message to verify that there isn\'t a problem with your mail server. If you do not receive your own test message, that means there is something is wrong on your end. For example, ask your ISP if their mail server is busy.

If you have tested your email and are certain that you entered your address correctly, it may be that our mail server is busy. It happens now and then, but it is rare and should never be tied up for more than two hours or so.


i\'d say if you don\'t hear anything by tomorrow, try contacting them to let them know about the problem.

here\'s one thing of note (edit: this should answer your ? marcial):

i think their definitions of \'bracket\' and \'tournament\' are different than mine. i created a tournament, and then 4 brackets within, but i don\'t think it understands that the winners of those 4 brackets will face each other. in which case, i\'d need to make a new bracket when the final 4 rolls around. i could have had one 64-team bracket, but then i wouldn\'t be able to put the regions. anyways, i\'m not about to go and do it all over again, so this will have to do..
