International Basketball Championships 28 [Signups CLOSED]

International Basketball Championships 28

Signups


Welcome to the Premier Professional Basketball tournament in the NS Multiverse. This here is Drawkland, the fourth president of the esteemed International Basketball Organization, calling in nations one and all to signup for the 28th edition of the International Basketball Championships, otherwise known as the IBC. Anybody can signup, and users can submit up to 1 puppet (which must be declared). Be warned that puppets will be the first to be purged if the need arises to create a round number for the competition.

How do you signup? Well, like every other NS Sports competition besides a select few, just state your intent in the thread. Looks something like this, perhaps?

This also counts as a signup for Drawkland, of course.

Host bidding is open for anyone who thinks they can tackle the task. Host bids don't necessarily require anything by rule, but if you want any shot of winning hosting rights, you should include information on format, scorination method, and RP bonuses. The deadline for submission of host bids is two weeks from the time of this post, ending at around 11:59pm Eastern Daylight Time (US), on October 12th. After that, there will be a week-long period for IBO Committee Members to send in their votes for an eligible host bid. At the end, the host will be selected based on the vote count, and signups, timing, & everything else with IBC 28 will be turned over to them.

In the interest of time, if there are 3 hosts bids for the IBC, cutoff for host bids will simply be 24 hours after the 3rd bid is posted.

***ATTENTION***


My second presidential term has finally come to an end! Serving since Post-IBC 25 (for this term), conducting the host vote and presidential vote will be my last act as IBO president, as that will signify 3 total IBCs for this term. Therefore, it's time to open nominations for the next IBO president!

According to the IBO Constitution Article III Section 3: Any IBO member may nominate any other IBO member for the Presidency. All members who are nominated for President will be placed before the IBO as candidates for the Presidency unless they state that they do not wish to serve as President.

Because of this, nominations need not be seconded. Any IBO member, even me, is available to be nominated. If you're an IBO member, please telegram this nation, International Basketball Organization, with your nomination (if you have one). If you want to reject a nomination in the event you receive one, TG this nation in advance (or just post on the Discussion Thread, that way nobody bothers nominating you in the first place). If you're not sure who's on the committee, check the OP of the discussion thread, the information is current. Remember also that the vice president is simply appointed by the new president after their election.

The deadline for presidential nominations will be the same as the host bid deadline, 2 weeks from the opening of signups. October 12th, at around 11:59pm Eastern Daylight Time (UTC-4). Voting will be held concurrently with host voting. Thanks all, and please send in nominations!

Will this year be the year where the Equestrians' inexplicable domestic brilliance translates to international success? Very probably not, but Equestria will enter the IBC anyways.
