Rules: - Nominate a metagame by including its full name in your post.
- You may nominate up to five metagames.
- You may nominate the same metagame as someone else.
- The ten metagames with the most nominations will enter the voting stage.
- Doubles versions of metagames are permitted; however, if a Singles and Doubles format for an OM are within the top ten most nominated metagames, then only the one with the most votes will proceed.
- Do not nominate metagames from the blacklist (below), or those without a thread in the Gen 7 forum.
- If a metagame is blacklisted, its Singles/Doubles variant is too. There are no exceptions to this rule bar for ladders that already exist. 1v1 Doubles is also ineligible for obvious reasons.
- You may only post once. If you post more than once, none of your votes will be counted.
- Do not try to influence other voters and do not bash any metagame.
- You are not allowed to make any posts except to nominate.
- You must have at least five forum posts before your post.
- Your account must be at least one week old by the time of your post.
- If another user breaks these rules, let us take care of it.
If any of the above rules are broken, your post will be deleted. Continued rule breaking will result in an infraction.
