Apologies for the double post, but here's the latest update.
I took the nominations from here and got 144 after cutting out duplicate names. Way more than the minimum 128 I needed. But far short of getting to 256 like some have requested. So I decided to combine it with the final list from the last tournament. After once again cutting out the duplicate names I am now at 342. So some things are gonna have to get sorted out to finalize it to an ideal 256 characters. Good chance there might be a delay in the start of the tournament. But I wanna make sure this is a good one so I hope you'll forgive me if there is a delay.
