    Shadow DeathList Competition 2022

    Things to keep in mind about any person you choose: Are they likely to obit in a major newspaper? Are they a well known celebrity? Do they have a Wikipedia page in any language (that clearly wasn't made just for Deathlisting) You will not be asked to prove any of these when you post your link, but upon your candidates death you may need to meet some of these criteria. @Banana, @gcreptile thanks for those suggestions. I think they're good criteria to keep in mind. I don't want peoples Shadow DeathLists to be challenged as they post here as has happened, but for when someone dies to score a point they should be taken into consideration. I feel mixed. I could flip the switch and have clear, stricter criteria. But ShadowList's should be fun and relaxed. People probably already have a ShadowList of 50 celebs, I would like them to just use that.

    Shadow DeathList Competition 2022

    I just added this to the first post: It is a valid criticism to say that the lack of rules may affect the quality of names or the formality of this deadpool. Some people already make a Shadow DeathList and I want this to be a place where we can compare them. For 2022, at least, I won't have formal rules on names. Being reported in the newspaper and having a Wikipedia Article that isn't a stub will go a long way. Could you suggest a higher level of fame criteria I could use that wouldn't be too strict? I think the balance here could just be Bibliography's reference to the Punt Pool of some kind of council of 5 voting on borderline names with "a simple 3:2 majority ´╗┐allows them in".

    I thought it's a fair point to make, that ShadowLists might produce names that wouldn't appear on the real deathlist. But the person complaining about two world leaders and a very infamous religious leader I thought I would ignore. I get your idea. The committee is UK-centric while the world is a pretty big place. I'm open to suggestions, I quite liked the idea of borderline names being voted on if necessary. I'm on the fence from most of what you say. I just don't think the concept of a ShadowList should be so strict, nor did I particularly want to a big crowdsource-esque way to gather votes. For my own sanity I'll probably step back and let criticism of this thread or individual names go without directly responding to them, but I am open to ideas. This website has lots of polarising people who all hold opinions and I'm open to listening to some of them. My approach to this is very laid back right now.

    I would genuinely be in support for those people to be in a shadow DeathList. It's all clear that they're famous, they all have Wikipedia pages and are regionally or locally famous. That's something I may need to rephrase, I'm unsure how to convey that message. Those people aren't nobodies. But then I have no problem with someone like Bill Gates' Dad being on the official DeathList, so I may need to be hanged, drawn and quartered. Most of my rules were taken from the main DeathList page with just making it any country rather than just the UK. A lot of people keep a shadow DeathList and I wouldn't want people to have to think too hard or change what they would usually make just for this!

    Shadow DeathList Competition 2022

    Scoreboard:
  7. 2022 Shadow DeathList Competition Big note: Please don't challenge individual names on someones list when they post. When a celebrity dies, this discussion can take place then. To enter: Have a list of 50 celebrities chosen by yourself, for their likelihood to die in 2022. Candidates must be famous enough that their death is confidently expected to be reported by any countries media On the issue that someone isn't famous enough, I have no idea how to deal with that. Adding strict rules and limitations doesn't seem very cool though, because I want people to feel comfortable posting their normal Shadow DeathList. Candidates cannot be famous solely for the fact they are likely to die imminently Candidates may submit their list any time from September 2021 to December of 2022 of 50 names + 5 subs. Post your list here to enter, there's no stress in posting it by January 1st if you're ultra-competitive with other Deadpools. Names on the scoreboard will only count AFTER you submit your list. If you submitted your list on the main Shadow Lists Forum or another similar forum late this may be taken into consideration. (If you submit a list in February of 2022 without having had posted it elsewhere, deaths occurring in January aren't going to count) Things to keep in mind about any person you choose: Are they likely to obit in a major newspaper? Are they a well known celebrity? Do they have a Wikipedia page in any language (that clearly wasn't made just for Deathlisting) You will not be asked to prove any of these when you post your list, but upon your candidates death you may need to meet some of these criteria. Scoring System: One death = One Point Making this early to take criticism of making this, suggestions, and to give me time to think of necessary rules. The inspiration for creating this comes from wanting a clear place to compare how my Shadow List does to the main DeathList. Anyone else that wants this for any reason is welcome to join and post their list below at a reasonable time. It is a valid criticism to say that the lack of rules may affect the quality of names or the formality of this deadpool. Some people already make a Shadow DeathList and I want this to be a place where we can compare them. For 2022, at least, I won't have formal rules on names. Being reported in the newspaper and having a Wikipedia Article that isn't a stub will go a long way.

    Shadow Lists

    I get why you've answered with those three, I did win the first DL Prediction Game! Not sure if the idea I was referring to would be redundant and would receive backlash if I made a thread for a more formal shadow deathlist competition, but it's something I'd want to see.

    Shadow Lists

    Is there a generic shadow list tracker / competition on Deathlist? This thread is a little informal

    Jeff Bridges

    I picked him on my shadow list this year, Cancer patient going through treatment gets covid and survives? Damn. Definitely staying on my list for next year but I wouldn't be surprised if he got the best covid treatment money can buy.

    I would give you more credit if you made a shadow deathlist of your own and had Asner on it. He wasn't even on my radar for this year.

    22. Tony Bennett

    Perhaps better than the alternative article of "Son overworks 95 year old Dad with alzheimers to exhaustion" You point stands, of course, work really does drive some people. Hopefully Tony Bennett keeps getting to sing and post on youtube and doing things within his realm
