    tPF Death Pool

    Here's the rules. Time sensitive.

    Select 10 celebrities, popular figures (people who would/have made the news). NO tPF MEMBERS OR MEMBERS OF OTHER FORUMS OR OTHERWISE REGULAR PEOPLE. If you do, immediate disqualification.

    Post your 10 popular figures by JANUARY 7th. Change/update your selections as much as you want up to January 7th.

    Then, after January 7th, all participating members will be finalized. NO NEW PARTICIPANTS WILL BE RECORDED AFTER JANUARY 7th.

    Now, all recorded participants will have until JANUARY 10th to change their selections.

    NO DEATHS UP THROUGH AND INCLUDING JANUARY 10th WILL BE COUNTED. THE POOL OFFICIALLY BEGINS ON JANUARY 11th.

    After January 10th, you will not be able to change your selections. This is to allow you to peek at other people's selections to make your final choices, to keep it fair.

    OFFICIAL SCORING:

    If a person you selected dies in 2016, their age will be a factor. At the time of death the following scoring scale will apply:

    • At or over 80: 1 point
    • At or over 70 but less than 80: 2 points
    • At or over 60 but less than 70: 3 points
    • At or over 50 but less than 60: 4 points
    • At or over 40 but less than 50: 5 points
    • Under 40: 6 points

    If the mods would sticky this thread that would be great. Anyone can chime in with a death update, I'll track the official scoring with updates when appropriate.

    If you pick someone already dead, too bad. Your choice must be a live person, a popular figure. World leader, celebrity, athlete, musician, artist, political figure, anyone who is nationally newsworthy.

    Have fun!

    I just noticed that, fixed it.

    I had it right the first time, edited it backwards. I'm dyslexic like that sometimes.

    Sorry
