    Alt Obituaries Deadpool

    I'm not certain about precedent for this. Strictly speaking, there is nothing in the rules that I can see. Deaths have occurred with a disputed date of when it took place, but I've not come across anything about a specific date not being provided being the causal factor for a denial of points. One only needs a qualifying obituary and a guarantee the death didn't occur in a previous year (as would've been the case if anyone had Beth Howland, given her circumstances). Understandable if no bonus points were to be awarded.

    Horse Racing

    I will conclude this thread at calendar year's end, marking one year since the start of the death count, as per the original story. With any luck, this will have been the last entry and no more horses will die, making your request a moot point.
