    I cannot help you there either. Might be referring to the 2 teams that failed to submit a list in Rd 2, but they were eliminated that round so have not been playing since. Everyone else is "existent" to my knowledge. Sir Creep's post is cryptic to me at best, but it seems clear that his heart isn't in it at this point so hopefully his current score of 7 will hold up as the big score for the month which will gracefully release him from all obligations hereforth . . . . Clorox and Capn Chorizo may very well benefit!

    Sir Creep, sir. Got your list, posted as of Friday, which has incurred a 7 pt penalty as thus: 3 pts for the death of a name on the master list (Mcgahan), which no one had on an active list (otherwise it would have been 3 pts plus the highest score incurred by a list containing mcgahan), plus one pt per day starting the 5th (4 pts). So I will get you posted, but you are in a hole. ALSO, you seem to have lapsed on the rules for this pool which state you cannot use names in consecutive months. Both Jimmy Carter and Marieke Vervoort were on your Jan list, so they are illegal here. Please sub in two legal names at the same spots ASAP. Otherwise if we get more hits I am going to have to figure out more penalty scenarios - sigh.

    Not at all. I appreciate poolers like you that follow the scoring and help keep it straight. You had credit in Jan, and somehow in my translation to the Feb table it got vaporized. All fixed now, nothing personal.

    Current standings (Feb 11th): 14 clorox 9 capn cho/gcrep 8 sir c 7 JMoney 5 MadHat/FixBus/msc/JRuss/Bentro/wormy 3 oldlady/newjack 2 quim/banana 1 Yorkshire Banker Everyone else has squat. I am allowing a new entrant in because it looks like up to 3 slackers may have dropped out already as they haven't ponied up a Feb team. Welcome to ebless, who has submitted the following: stan bowles vera lynn (4) doddie weir stirling moss (4) herman wouk (3) I am not adding him to the table above as of yet due to formatting difficulties with the original post. I will start including his team with the others next month, but his list is now active.

    The above table is posted with the teams in order in which they were posted for Feb. I am thinking that although this table does not show the standings without a lot of effort, it makes it easier to follow the decrease in point value for names that are used by multiple teams. I will post the standings separately each month for clarity on those. Three teams have yet to come in, and we got a new entry even though the game is closed (ebless). I will consider letting latecomers into the game if it appears teams that signed on in Jan bail out and don't submit this month. The last 3 teams may fall in that category. I think the strategy here is interesting, with the push and pull of the incentives to post early vs. the disincentives of losing out on scoring opportunities. We already have scoring for Feb with Andrew McGahan!! I personally missed a double 5 pt score with him by one day - he was top name on my Jan list. Cest la vie.

    Well, in general, things seem to be running smoothly into month 2 . . . . . except for an exchange between Sir Creep and gcreptile that I don't think pertains to anything that happened in this game, or if it does, it went over my head. However, then Sir Creep posted a team that was an intentional exact replicate of gcreptile's that was just posted, and I did reserve the right to penalize such a tactic. The penalty is partially already built in to the format, as all those names will earn Sir Creep one less point if they hit than they will for gcreptile. But since it was intentional and I am trying to discourage the strategy, I will also doc Sir Creep his first Feb hit. If no hits occur in Feb, then no harm done, and we start over in March. But from here on out, let's play nice boys. Don't make me hate being the commish. Although I feel it is less complicated than last year since you don't have to worry about ranking the names to point value and avoiding previously taken point slots, note that it is still important to keep track of how many times a name appears on posted lists! Point in case: as of Clorox Bleachman's post Walter Jones had been used 5 times so his value was down to 1 point. So all lists using Walter Jones after that are wasting a slot as he is now worth zero (Banana, Joey). That is all I will say on that and in the future if you get a hit and score zero points . . . . . you know why. We have 21 Feb teams in already, and with all the different names it is likely to be a busy month of scoring. I will post a table in the next couple of days.

    I have some things to address at the end of the day, but for now only time to get in my team before they become worthless: Fernando Ricksen Kathleen Blanco Walter Jones Bob Barker Jean Louis Trintignant

    Quim, it does not look good for your survival. The new names for RD 5 are up on the first post. I will go ahead and be the first to post my Feb (RD5) team, barring any disaster that gives me more than Quim's 2 points in the next 4 days.

    Thank you for catching that, I meant to say that you will NOT be able to replace the name. Fixed, all better now.

    This is just a reminder for players who have not reread the rules and think they know what is going on from playing last year - - please reread the rules (first post) for major changes! You may post Feb lists early, but now if someone dies on your Feb list before Feb starts, you will NOT be able to replace them. This is in addition to nullifying your current Jan list. Also, check for last minute obits on your active list and post hits (even if no QO yet) BEFORE you post a new list, to confirm the death occurred before you nullify your active list with an early post. This year there is more incentive to post early - - more potential points per name if you are first, but the disincentives are also steeper. Thanks for playing, and I hope this new version of 5-4-3-2-1 is more challenging that last year's.

    Sorry I missed it, it looks like a cool idea. Give me a shout out next year if you run it again.

    Get a replacement name in at your #1 slot . . pronto!
  15. Wormfarmer

    Five4three2one Deadpool - 2019

    Your replacement at the #1 slot is noted, but your original selection of ronan keating in the 4 slot cannot be changed since ronan, according to my check of the web, is still among the living.
