    Chadwick Boseman

    He was beloved from folk of my generation, with many of them being utterly heartbroken by his death. If you remember Stefan Karl Stefansson’s death, he was also beloved by younger folk who was really sad when he died. Take the response of Stefansson and multiply it by 10, and that’s an indicator of how much more well known Boseman was. I suppose this comment on forum perfectly sums up why some people are more upset for certain deaths than others.

    Chadwick Boseman

    I imagine there was going to be a bit of a generational divide, but Boseman was absolutely massive on Twitter. I think he was getting close to the same amount of tweets, possibly even more, as John Lewis did when he died. I imagine most of the older folk aren’t super hero fans, so here’s another film with Boseman portraying James Brown to show how talented he was and why he had a bright future ahead of them had the cancer not killed him:

    What a legend.

    Chadwick Boseman

    For those who don’t know, Boseman was a major star and definitely seemed like he had a bright future ahead of him. Truly is shocking. Also seems like that above meant more than I realized...

    John Lewis

    Makes me curious about other freedom riders that are still alive now, given that’s there freedom riders had gone inside 2 months. Well, here’s some of the remaining freedom riders that are still alive: Janet Braun-Reinetz (apparently still alive but no DOB) Amos Brown (1941 - ) Bob Filner (1942 - ) Bernard Lafayette (1940 - ) James Lawson (1928 - ) Diane Nash (1938 - ) Charles Person (1942 - ) Meryle Joy Reagon (1942 - ) Charles Sherrod (1937 - ) Carol Ruth Silver (1938 - ) Helen Singleton (1932 - ) Peter Sterling (1940 - ) Hank Thomas (1941 - ) Joan Trumpaer Muholland (1941 - ) James Zwerg (1939 - )

    The first thread that came to mind to post his death. Freedom rider Bill Harbour is dead.

    Only Famous For Being Ill And Dying

    Since FFBI are now gone from the DDP, might as well mention the case where Sarah Harding gets a message from a cancer mum who got a similar diagnosis

    Kim Jong-Un

    We’ve been through this before. When Kim Jong-un actually dies it’ll probably be when no one has been paying attention, just like with Kim Jong-il

    Alt Obituaries Deadpool

    If you aren’t including folk who were rejected but recovered, then Mark Allen should be removed from that list. Also Bilton was rejected, and although he’s stable at the moment he hasn’t really recovered (and never will now that we know what his immunotherapy is)

    He’s still liking some tweets too pretty recently... but I believe he liked a lot more posts when he was actively tweeting too. Kind of reminds me of Andretti tbh...

    Well, if this pool ever updates, I had Frankie Banali.

    The 5th Crowdsource Deathlist (2020 edition)

    I should be able to get access to my computer again soon (been stuck in a hotel for a while), in which case I’ll catch up on the three hits. And of course if anyone else dies from the list in these next few days I’ll write about them too. In other news, I believe we’re tied with the 2019 hit total at this point, though we’re one behind 2017...
  22. Bloody hell. Not only are we heading to that time of year again, but we are also on our 5th year of doing this list. Time really does fly by fast. Anyways, welcome again to the Crowdsource List, which our goal is to try to outdo our friends on the deathlist committee. A total of 14 hits as of now. Will 2020 do better than 2019? Time will tell. Anyways, let's go onto the rules... THE RULES Rules 1. Please send a list of celebrities you wish to vote for to Joey Russ, during the time period of 22nd November to the 31st December 2019. The list must have a minimum of 20 names on it, and a maximum of 50. Please send them by either PM or the Shadow List thread, not by email, semaphore, Morse code, Deathlist live chat, animated corpses, text messages, or any other means of communication you can think of. And you may only submit via 1 of those two methods above, NOT BOTH METHODS! 2. Your 1st choice will gain 50 points, 2nd 49, etc etc to 50th which will gain 1 point. 3. When the deadline passes, all of the points that an individual celebrity gain will be added together, and the top fifty celebrities with the most points overall will go on the Utterly Unofficial Forum List. 4. Feel free to add substitutes at the bottom of the list, which will only be counted if one of your fifty die before January 1st 2020. If for example your number one pick is such a smart one they die before January 1st, then I will give 50 points to your 2nd pick, and so on until 1 point is given to the first substitute. 5. Do try to make the picks as "Deathlisty" as possible. More Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and less Dewayne "Monsanto Man" Johnson, if you know what I mean. Someone likely to score an obit with one of the major English language news outlets. 6. The deadline for sending in entries is 31st December 2019 at 9 pm GMT. That's 4pm New York Time (31st December) and 8am (1st Jan) Melbourne time to help out non-Brits. This earlier dead line is so there's enough time to complete the list before the new year as well as enjoying some extra time off as well. 7. This is essentially a forum game without a winner. It does however put the long held notion by some that the combined minds of the forum know better than the Committee to the test. 8. Who picked whom will remain anonymous. Unless the person announces it of course. 9. The paranoid probably shouldn't send in their DDP unique hopefuls. Whilst I do not intend to steal them away, it would make no sense: if the person then showed up on the list, their chances of being unique would be very slim indeed! 10. To keep to the Deathlist spirit, only the top 25 ranked celebrites from the current list of Crowdsourced Deathlist 2019 survivors will be used: Kirk Douglas, Jean Louis-Trintignant, Vera Lynn, Nobby Stiles, Clive James, Olivia Newton-John, Olivia de Havilland, Prince Philip, Dilip Kumar, Bob Dole, Pope Benedict, Bob Barker, George Alagiah, Leslie Phillips, Jimmy Carter, Glynis Johns, Stirling Moss, Jill Gascoine, Sidney Poitier, Javier Perez de Cuellar, Mikhail Gorbachev, Violet Chamorro, Bill Turnbull, Terry Jones, Lee Kerslake, Loretta Lynn, John Hume, Roberta McCain, Gina Lollabrigida, Betty White, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, John Andretti, Rosalynn Carter, Pierre Cardin, Sheila Mercier, Beverly Cleary Some names there I don’t think anyone expected to be in contention for 2020, but there’s still time in 2019 yet. 10a) Our actual collated list will stick to the "25 from the previous year" rule. 10b) As a result, if our top fifty, after all votes have been counted, has more than twenty-five of the 2019 survivors (named for ease in Rule 10), then the lowest ranked excess survivors will be axed from the list in favour of The Fifty-First ranked celebrity and so on... 10c) Since we don't know if that'll be an issue until I actually do the counting, voters don't need to worry about limiting their personal lists to 25 survivors. It'd be nice if they did, but that's life. 11) Please pick living people. Folk do die before 1st January, but there were a few cases of people dead for a number of years chosen last time. Please do not pick animals, or ISIS prisoners, or kids, or any of the usual no go areas. Anyhow, enjoy. Or not.

    Hopefully people aren’t going to bang their heads if they picked him now that Frankie Banali has gone.
