    Betty Driver Memorial Soapstar Superstar Thread

    Wish you'd stop doing this. Every time it gives the impression that the person has died, especially as it takes time to scroll down to the actual news.

    That it's sad.

    I really just meant a complete list of people picked by our ?mourners? -so that we all know who to cheer on from the sidelines, as it were.

    Will you be posting a master list so we can keep tabs on pool hits? (Still not really sure how this works)

    Inverse Dead Pool 2020

    Why wouldn't we? We're only picking from a limited pool, not going to be any surprises. Better to get it out of the way than wait, forget, and miss the deadline.

    Ask A Deathlister

    Thanks, Cat, I'll try that. Doesn't seem to have worked, unfortunately. Says it's a Firefox bug, so it may get sorted out.

    Andy Ripley and other boofheads

    Yes, it's like "star" in the tabloids.

    Ask A Deathlister

    Glad it's not just me. It's a new quirk though, has only started happening in the last couple of weeks. BIB, that's what I've been doing. I just left that last one as an example to demonstrate the issue. And I still can't get the list of unread posts to display in condensed form. That's recent too.

    Example here: Windows 10, Firefox.

    Ask A Deathlister

    Here's another weird thing that's started happening. If I copy a list from a spreadsheet and paste it into a post, the site treats it as an image. It still asks if you want rich text or plain text, but whichever you choose, it posts as an image, not text.

    I'm new to this, so didn't really know how to play it. I couldn't think of many younger people, so concentrated on avoiding the very old. Some of my picks are long shots. The ones in italics are uniques.

    We are not worthy
  13. Think it was the other way round, none of them wanted the royalty job.

    I bet they would if they only talked about horses. Not for the first time, I don't understand what you're on about.

    Internet Celebrities

    No, self-promoting "Welcome to my channel" types do not pass my fame test. I don't care how many sad sacks "follow" them on Youtube or Twitter.

    DL Prediction Game 2020

    I'm sorry? People were actually predicting that this complete nobody would be on the DL?

    This would have been the positive side of banning BBC local obits.

    1. Prince Phillip Duke Of Edinburgh

    I think the point being made is that the report of him being "bedridden" is inaccurate.

    Icehouse! Loved them.

    Roger Scruton

    No matter, my expectations are low, so not for the first time I have lamented the absence of a "shocked" reaction It would probably get more use than the "confused" one.

    My email address is the only detail I gave that wasn't a lie. Of course I only gave them one of my B-list email addys. I hate sites that demand too much personal information for no good reason.

    Cheers, accepted! Yes, I was surprised nobody had used Arya's List, but correct grammar paid off this time
  24. Toast


    OK, I've registered - with some difficulty as the username Toast was already taken! The impudence of some people! So if you would like to invite me, @Skinny kiltrunner I have registered as Arya's List. I thought I would be able to see the database of names, but it appears not, it's trial and error. Hmmm, quite angry to see some of the people that they've refused. Insular fuckers.

    Who Will Thomas Jefferson Survives 100th Hit Be?

    Thank you. I had Sultan Qaboos too, so he makes it 80.
