      Atarashi Sumi Showa Picking Order! *Completed*

      There will be two rounds of picking. In the first round everyone will get 1 pick. In the second round you do all of the picks that you have left. If you have a total of four picks you will do one in the first round and three in the second round. I would like to have you pick in groups of five at a time. Every one needs to then have five choices that you submit when your turn comes up. List them in order of preference. The reason for this is that you would then get at least one of your choices if the four people ahead of you pick your first four choices.
      Once the picking starts I would like you to PM me your five choices. Once I have them all I will confirm with you the choice you end up with and then I will remove those pictures from the Atarashi Sumi Showa Picture thread. This will then show the Showa that are left so that there is no confusion. Once the first five people are done I will notify you when the next five people can start by posting on this thread. This will continue until we are through. The faster you all respond, and vice versa, the quicker the process will go.

      Here is the order you will pick in:

      1st Round

      1). Rudy - picked 72

      In each group of 5, wouldn't the first picker really only need one choice, the 2nd picker 2, the 3rd picker 3, etc.?
      \
      For instance, picker 2 only needs 2 choices since only one of their choices could be unavailable if picker 1 takes one of their two choices. So having a 3rd, 4th and 5th choice for someone picking second is of no use and would take more effort to track unnecessarily?

      I think that makes sense, but Russ will confirm.

      Do we have a timeout rule if somebody doesn't make a selection withing 2 days (or some reasonable period)? I'd hate to see the whole thing grind to a crawl for somebody taking a week to pick, followed by the next person taking a week...

      Don't mean to inconvenience you but I'm now another 1/2 hour late for a 300 mile drive.

      I won't be back on until this evening so if that is to long then Russ can just remove my name.

      Bro, you're good. We'll never get to your second choice before tonight.

      Take your time.
