2015 Death Pool
« on: December 10, 2014, 01:01:27 pm »
It's almost time for the 2015 death pool.  I pretty much copied and pasted last year's rules, so here they are:

No changes in the format or rules this year, except one that doesn't affect anything right now (see below) 

Rules are as follows:

We'll have 5 rounds.  You make one pick per round.  A schedule is posted below for when each round begins and ends.  The picks thread, which is here http://forum.stucknut.com/index.php/topic,80166.0.html  will be created shortly before the picks begin, will be locked and unlocked at the beginning/conclusion of each round. If you miss a round, you may make that pick up in a later round.  You just can't make picks ahead of time.  Also, the 5th round will remain open for an extended period of time, allowing everyone the chance to get their 5 in.

I will compile the picks in a spreadsheet to make things easier.  This year, I will be putting the sheet up on google docs.  I'll post the link in the picks thread.  Once the picks are in the spreadsheet, THEY ARE FINAL! (see below for more on this)

The scoring system remains the same.... 10 points per correct pick, plus the age bonus of (100 less the person's age).  So, a 65 year old would net you 45 points (10 + 35)

No death row inmates are allowed to be picked.

Celebrities/people in the news only please.

I will pick last in each round so as to not gain an unfair advantage.

- If you make a pick and he/she dies before the end of 2014, you get 10 points ONLY. You will, however, be allowed to then make a new pick.

- Assume that picks are FINAL AS SOON AS YOU POST THEM. In theory, you could make a pick and change it before I see it, but once I enter the pick into the spreadsheet it is FINAL, unless it is determined I've made some sort of error.  The only changes that are allowable are if A) one pick dies before the end of '14 and you're allowed to make a new one, or B) you pick someone that's already taken.  In that case reply to your own post with your new pick. I will try to inform folks if they pick someone else's pick but in the end it's YOUR responsibility.

Schedule is as follows: (All times ET, subject to change)

Round 1: Starts December 16 at noon. Ends December 17 9am.
Round 2: Starts December 17 at 4pm  Ends December 18 noon.
Round 3: Starts December 18 at 9pm (approx.)   Ends December 19 noon
Round 4: Starts December 19 at 4 pm. ends December 22 at 9am.
Round 5: Starts December 23 at 9am. Ends December 30 at noon.

Now the one change.  At mid-year I am considering opening this back up again and allowing everyone one more pick.  More details as that time approaches.

Feel free to post any comments/suggestions/complaints in this thread.  A second thread will be started for the actual picks, and I don't want that thread cluttered with tarding and other comments.  Keep it in this thread.
