ISML 2015 Charter

        The Annual Charter complements the ISML Constitution in defining values, schedules, additional limitations, etc. that have not yet been addressed. This allows ISML to be slightly different each year (keeping things exciting) while also retaining consistent core values.

I.        Voting Policies and Procedures
A.        IP addresses of voters will be logged to determine authenticity and uniqueness.
B.        A voter may not circumvent the Policies stated in Article IV of the ISML Constitution by using multiple IP addresses to cast votes in the same round.
C.        Voters found in violation of these procedures may have their IP addresses or subnets banned from voting in future ISML-hosted events for the remainder of the year. The length of ban is at the discretion of the Staff.
D.        Voters may change their vote (if cast in error) by contacting the Staff by email at admin@internationalsaimoe.com. Vote change requests must include the IP address from which the vote was cast, the original incorrect vote, and the requested new vote.

II.        Contestant Divisions
A.        Female and male characters will compete in separate tournaments. They may face each other in exhibition arenas only.
B.        Beginning with the Preliminary Period, female Candidates and Contestants are further separated into the Nova Division and the Stella Division.
C.        All female characters begin in the Nova Division and automatically transfer to the Stella Division upon achievement of any of the following:
1.        Recipient of a Division Championship or League Championship
2.        Contestant in Regular Season four or more years ago (2011 or earlier)
3.        Contestant in Regular Season two or more times

III.        Tournament of Champions
A.        All winners of the ISML Championship will participate in a single-elimination tournament during the 2015 Postseason. This includes the 2015 Tiara winner along with previous winners.
B.        Other than the eventual 2015 Tiara winner, characters in the Tournament of Champions will not participate in the Regular Season, except for the previous year’s Champion if she won from Nova Division (thus, had never been in Stella division).
C.        If such an exception exists, that character is eligible to participate in the Regular Season (by way of Nominations and Preliminaries) and face other Contestants; however, she will not be eligible for Postseason Phase I or Postseason Phase II.

IV.        Automatic Qualification
A.        No characters are permitted to advance directly to the Regular Season.
B.        The top two (2) Contestants from each of the ISML 2014 Seasonal Tournaments who have not advanced to ISML 2015 Stella Division are permitted automatic entry into ISML 2015 Preliminary Period, Nova Division. This is a total of eight (8) entries.

V.        Nomination Period
A.        The Nomination Period lasts fourteen (14) days.
B.        Character eligibility will be checked according to Article III of the ISML Constitution with the following additional conditions:
1.        Character data occurring after 31 December 2014 will not be considered.
2.        For entry into the Nova or Stella Division, the character must be female, must possess a female form (in which case only the instances when the character is female shall be considered), or must regularly exhibit feminine qualities when the character's gender is unknown or cannot be determined.
3.        The male division considers the same qualifications as above except with regards to male and masculine characters.
4.        A character who qualifies as both male and female may enter only one division only; the prevailing gender will take priority.
C.        The nomination form has separate sections for female characters and male characters.
1.        Voters may nominate up to fourteen (14) characters for the Nova and Stella Divisions.
2.        Voters may nominate up to eight (8) characters for male division.
3.        Voters must nominate at least three (3) characters.
4.        Voters must nominate from at least three (3) distinct anime franchises.
D.        Nominated characters must be unique.
E.        Invalid nominations will be discarded individually and will not void the entire ballot unless the discards result in a violation of any of the subsections of Rule C.
F.        At the end of the Nomination Period, characters with the most nominations in each Division will advance to the Preliminary Period until the allotted slots are filled.
1.        The number of allotted slots for each Division is eighty (80) minus the number of automatic entries defined previously.
2.        Staff will resolve any ties that occur in the last available slot(s). Priority consideration shall be given, if applicable, to those characters not selected for the previous year's Regular Season.
G.        An additional form for the Winter Seasonal Tournament, an exhibition tournament, will be available during the Nomination Period. This form accepts female characters (per rule V.B.2) with appearances on and after 1 January 2015 and who have not appeared in the 2014 Preliminary Period or any seasonal tournament in 2014.
1.        Voters may nominate up to five (5) characters.
2.        Thirty-two (32) characters will be accepted into the tournament; prioritization is a mixture of nomination results and maximizing the number of anime series represented.

VI.        Preliminary Period
A.        Characters participating in the Preliminary Period are referred to as Candidates.
B.        The Preliminary Period features eighty (80) Candidates per Division.

E.        Ties in any group after each voting round will be broken in the following order:
1.        Average Votes For (VF) total
2.        Ranking in the previous voting round
3.        Ranking at the end of the Nomination Period
F.        Seeding matches will begin in Round 4 and continue after Round 5 has concluded.
G.        The Winter Seasonal Tournament will begin at the same time as Round 2.

VII.        Seeding Matches

C.        All seeding arenas will have six (6) Contestants. Voters may select up to two (2) Contestants per group.

VIII.        Regular Season
A.        Characters participating in the Regular Season are referred to as Contestants.
B.        Each Division consists of thirty-six (36) Contestants, who will participate in a round-robin tournament.

2.        Inter-divisional matchups will occur during the Necklace Showdown, described later.
3.        Additional Competitors will be present, participating in Exhibition Matches occurring alongside the primary matches but having no bearing on Regular Season results.
4.        Contestants are seeded based on results from the Preliminary Period.
C.        The Regular Season consists of five (5) Periods in the following order: Aquamarine, Amethyst, Ruby, Emerald, and Topaz. Each Period consists of seven (7) Rounds.
1.        Each Round features eighteen (18) matches from each Division for a total of fifty-four (54) matches.
2.        Each Contestant has exactly one opponent per Round.
3.        Exhibition Matches will be featured during the Round.
4.        Each Round will last twenty-four (24) hours.
5.        Round results will be available on the Website no sooner than twelve (12) hours after the Round's scheduled end.
D.        At the end of each Round, the Contestant who receives the greater number of valid votes in her Match will be declared the winner; the opponent will be declared the loser. If the Contestants have an equal number of valid votes, the match will be declared a draw; both Contestants will record a tie in their statistics, and no overtime match will occur.
E.        A ranking system for each Division will be utilized to track the Contestants' progress throughout the Regular Season and in each of the five Periods.
1.        The primary index for rankings will be League Points. Contestants are awarded League Points following each round depending on the result:
a)        A win awards three (3) points.
b)        A tie awards one (1) point.
c)        A loss awards fractional points calculated as (Votes For / Votes Against).
2.        League Points are also referred to as a Contestant's Strength of Schedule.
3.        A second index is the Point-weighted Strength of Schedule of All Opponents (PSAO). This is calculated as the sum of League Points for all of a Contestant's opponents adjusted by the percentage of maximum possible League Points after a given Round. (PSAO = SAO * Pt%)
F.        Contestants in the same Division may not have the same rank at any point in the tournament. If Contestants have the same amount of League Points after a given Round, tiebreaker procedures will be applied in the following order:
1.        Greater number of wins
2.        Winner of the tied Contestants' head-to-head match, if applicable
a)        This is calculated only at the end of each Period and at the end of the Regular Season
3.        Greater Point-weighted Strength of Schedule of All Opponents (PSAO)
4.        Greater Vote Differential (VD)
5.        Greater number of Votes For (VF)
6.        Selection by Staff
G.        At the end of the Regular Season after all tiebreakers have been applied, the sixteen (16) Contestants in each Division with the most League Points will advance to the Postseason.
H.        Contestants will accumulate a Seeding Score throughout the season. This value is used primarily for initial seeding in the Postseason.
1.        All Contestants begin with a Seeding Score of 100.
2.        After every match, the winner will receive N% of his or her opponent’s Seeding Score. The loser will lose N% of his or her Seeding Score.
3.        The value N begins at 1 for the first match of the season and will increment by 1 until the last match of the regular season (where N would equal 35).
I.        Other statistical values may be posted and kept for study and analysis.
J.        Special awards will be given to two male Contestants at the end of the Regular Season.
1.        The male Contestant with the highest Seeding Score will be awarded the Sapphire Crown.

3.        The winner of this special match will be awarded the Diamond Crown.
K.        Every ballot submission will be recorded in a database. At the end of each Round, the Staff will validate and verify each submission before calculating totals.
L.        All Voter Policies and Procedures stated in Article IV of the Constitution apply with the following additions:
1.        Voters may abstain from any match in a given Round, but a ballot must have a minimum number of votes to be considered valid. This value differs depending on the Round and will be specified on each voting ballot.
2.        Voters may make changes to their submitted ballot in the allotted time by contacting the Staff with their IP address and change request.
3.        Votes submitted from a proxy IP are not allowed and are grounds for banning.

IX.        Necklace and Pendant Showdown
A.        After the end of the seventh Round in each Period, a free-for-all voting round called Necklace Showdown will occur to determine the winner of the Necklace representing that period. This round is known as the Pendant Showdown for the male division.
B.        There will be only one Necklace/Pendant awarded per Period. Nova and Stella Divisions will compete together for the same Necklace.
C.        Only Contestants who have not already won a Necklace/Pendant this year are eligible to participate.
D.        A total of seven (7) Contestants will participate in the Necklace Showdown based on their Rank for the Period.

G.        Voters may select up to two (2) Contestants among the finalists on their ballots.
H.        At the end of the round, each Contestant receives a Necklace/Pendant Score, calculated as such:
N/P Score = (voting percentage in Round) + [(PSAO in Period) / 3]
...where voting percentage means 100 * (votes received / sum of all votes in arena)
I.        The Contestant with the highest Necklace/Pendant Score is awarded the Necklace/Pendant. Ties are resolved using the same procedure in Regular Season rounds.
J.        The winner of a Necklace is guaranteed a slot in Postseason, Phase I.
K.        Exhibition matches will be scheduled alongside the Necklace and Pendant Showdown.

3.        If Contestants have the same number of votes at the end of a voting round, the Contestant who won the head-to-head match during the Regular Season will be declared the winner. If that match was also a draw, the higher-ranked Contestant according to the final Regular Season standings will be declared the winner.
4.        Contestants eliminated in the first, second, and third rounds will participate in consolation seeding matches organized similar to a Swiss-system tournament.
