A: Click the link above, go to File, select Make a Copy — that part is important, don’t forget it! — and you should be able to make changes to your sheet!
Q: What do those numbers in parentheses on the entries mean?
A: Those are seeds, assigned based on an entry’s popularity in the public polls. So 1 seeds (there are four on each bracket) were the top four vote-getters on the initial topic poll, while the 8 seeds were the four least-popular options to make the bracket. By the way, the numbers before the seeds are the overall rankings from the poll. So the entry that says 1 (1) was the top overall vote getter, while 32 (8) was the last entry to make the cut.
Q: I’m listening to the podcast and OMG how could you guys make that decision? It’s crazy!
A: I know, right? What were we thinking?! But here’s the thing: we make the podcast, but you are still part of the debate. If you think we got something wrong, leave a comment! Respectfully — and I cannot stress that enough — let us know what you think/how you feel! The discussion continues long after the episode wraps!
