    OK, so I've been brainstorming this as it did not make sense. Checking stuff with a friendly Admin who was as stumped. But through a series of experiments with Reptile, we have come to the bottom of the problem. On DL forum, and I have never seen this on any other forum... If you delete a PM to make space, then no reply to that PM will come to you. So what I imagine has happened is Dr T sent his team into this original invitation PM, but as there is a 50 PM inbox limit for non-Admins, and there's a fuck lot of you sending in stuff, I basically record info and delete the original to free up space. Having never assumed that would block PMs, because who would? So, two things. First, please welcome the reinstatement of @Dr_T, victim of a forum bug. Second, if you send in a team from now on please make it a new PM and not a reply to anything. Thanks.

    My dad has been discharged today! We know and he knows his time is limited, but we are trying to spend it at best. For now I'm happy we did not lose dad when we had lost all hopes.

    So the next crash by that logic will be in 2074, we will all be long dead and Phillip recovering from his 10th hip replacement will be injuring our grandchildren and coming away from the accident without a scratch.

    STATS AND FACTS The Inverse Dead Pool has seen its most robust participation rate yet, with 48 teams entered (+12 compared to last year). Like last year, no name was unanimously picked or excluded (3 teams at worst, 46 teams at best). The names to come closest to being unanimous picks were the Donald, Her Maj, and Gazza, who were only omitted by two teams each. CaptainChorizo left out Gascoigne, Sir Creep's daughter (whose team was picked by randomly choosing numbers) didn't land Trump or Elizbaeth, and msc's deliberate "take one for the team" excluded all three! The people's choice for 2019 is as follows, sorted by overall points, but with the amount of teams to plump for them also included. The top four remains identical to last year (last year's #5, Angela Lansbury, narrowly missed out on being selectable again). Trump may well start keeping copies of Inverse Dead Pool stats in the Oval Office considering how popular he is here! Name Total Points Total # of Teams 1. Donald Trump 1048 46 2. Queen Elizabeth II 988 46 3. Paul Gascoigne 972 46 4. Dick Van Dyke 838 43 5. Linda Nolan 777 42 6. Billy Connolly 750 43 7. Jimmy Carter 662 43 8. Betty White 540 40 9. Terry Jones 539 39 10.

Greg Gilbert 235 25 25. Vera Lynn 228 25 The people's choice for 2018, if an actual team, would have finished at =8th place with 36 points. Carol Channing would've been a big landmine had she lasted a few more days... which names out of the above will follow suit and shake up the scoreboard this year? On the flip side, few anticipate this lot making it through 2019: Name Total Points Total # of Teams 1. Kathleen Blanco 25 3 2. Andrew Fairlie 38 3 3. Jean-Louis Trintignant 49 6 4. Lee Kerslake 59 7 =5. Johnny Clegg 64 7 =5. Andrew McGahan 64 5 7. Nobby Stiles 73 11 8. Fernando Ricksen 74 7 9. Herman Wouk 82 7 10. Clive James 85 12 Though it is worth noting that only half of last year's bottom ten actually died. And two of the survivors of that (Vervoort and Gilbert) are on over half of this year's teams!

    A few hours ago, in light of the issues the PM limit caused here, I bumped the PM limit for members in general from 50 to 75. If problems continue, I'll likely further increase the limit specifically for deadpool runners.

    Alright, so, I've decided I want to change my username back to the original RadGuy. It's been 1 and 1/2 years since I changed it to Phantom of the Midway, but people still call me Rad. Also, I'm occasionally confused with the OG @Phantom So fuck it, we're going back to RadGuy. Apologies to pool runners in advance for needing to edit my name in their masterlists/scoreboards... (Also, as this might help with confused folks, could my tagline be changed to: "AKA Phantom of the Midway")

    We (cough... drol...) like to complain that nobody dies, but honestly, we lost quite a few veterans/mascots in the past year. Starting with Billy Graham, Karunanidhi, Tiwari, Overton and now Sri Sri. We lost a couple of eternal heads of state as well. Of course, Le Duc Anh still remains. And Kumar. And those who populate the upper regions of the deathlist.

    OFFICIAL RULING ON DR T SITUATION Dr T said in here that he sent me his team. I didn't receive it, and despite multiple efforts from me, he hasn't sent in a repeat. In the spirit of fairness, given this is an alleged forum PM glitch I have myself suffered from in the past, and every other team is in, I am giving Dr T 3 hours (ie till 3am UK time) to publicly post his team here in this thread. Otherwise I will be forced to DQ him from the tournament despite this alleged error.

    I see nothing wrong with him driving again, he had to get behind the wheel quickly to see if he could still do it. Nothing to do with his age, it just had to be done ASAP. If nothing else, it keeps Brexit off the top spot "Journalists: "Brexit will monopolize the front pages for weeks!" Prince Philip: "Hold my beer!""
