Fea Sakura>> Yeap. That's exactly it. =)You're allowed ONE chance to change your brackets after the polls start before the quarter finals (Round of 8) to improve your odds including the future line-up of characters, but everything in the passed brackets cannot be changed.Note: If you use this chance to change your brackets, please do inform me about it by sending me a PM with the time and date of your change. If the time and date of a change on your post is set after the polls and I have no notice if this, your bracket will be disqualified. :D

Just copy+paste the names you like from one side of the bracket into the other. After that if you'd like to make your choices clearer, highlight the losing brackets with a darker/different color (but make sure the words are still visible). Hope this helps. =)

Yeap. But the rule for editing still applies; you cannot edit ones which have already lost/are currently ongoing. =3

Those won't be counted. We will only take into account the prediction of brackets that happen after their submission, so those who started earlier have a chance to have a higher score.Case and point would be SugarGal's latest submission. It was given in after the first week's polls had started, so any result that tallies this week on her prediction won't add to her score.Otherwise it wouldn't be a much of a "prediction" contest, would it? :D

So do feel free to make any changes between now and 1st October on upcoming brackets. However, once the 1st October brackets begin, any changes from there will be considered a use of your lifeline. =)

I have no problems with the new arrangements. It's only fair for those who started early. =)

The 4 winners from each bracket will be randomly matched but we need to use our "lifeline" before the Quarter Finals. Does this mean when the Quarter Final list is out, we cannot use our lifeline anymore?

Nope. Only after the polls begin. There will be a little bit of time in between for you to adjust your brackets. =)
