It is with a profound sadness that I announce that March Madness is cancelled this year.
There will be no final match.
I have run this activity for 5 years straight and this year had an OBSCENE amount of petty internet drama, like no other year before it. I do apologize to everyone that participated and allowed me to promote them - I hope many a new people were turned on to your HTTYD creations and found new things to love that you made.
This is a promotional activity structured around the USA NCAA Basketball brackets, it was meant to get the fandom involved and support their favorite participants, raise awareness for the group, it was meant for new creators to the fandom to be discovered, not to be a cut-throat, elitist show of a contest.
I probably will not hold this activity anymore due to the possibility of it creating such a volatile atmosphere. I hope you had fun while it lasted. I thank everyone who ever participated from 2011 to now.
Thank you for being a part of it
