Hares Death Pool 2021

Firstly, when Deathray first got banned and someone needed to put the scores together, I offered to do it unless anyone else fancied it. Likewise, when no-one was offering to run the 2021 version, I said I would do it, unless a more established forum member wanted to claim it first. On neither occasion did anyone else want  it, so as far as I'm concerned, that gave me the go-ahead to take it over.

 

Unless in the meantime, Deathray is allowed back on the forum, and declares a wish to take over again, in which case I will pass it back to him. 

 

 

 

Umm, why did Deathray got banned or where can I read about that?

You see that big can of worms up there on the shelf? Why don't you go over and open it!

 

In any case, you will have to be more specific - which particular incidence of Deathray's banning are you referring to?

My replacement wildcard is King Harald of Norway

 

Er, putting my fools hat on, what is the wildcard?

I've never actually entered this pool before, so don't know from previous years.

I looked at rules for this year (and 2020 and 2019 actually) and can't see a reference to it.

I just found a message saying Margaret Tebbit was my wildcard so I needed a new one and just picked one from my list. I didn't actually go back and check the rules.

To be pedantic, its a Joker, not a wildcard, but the effect is the same. Maybe there has been some confusion between the two terms, but from what I can see, the terms are used interchangeably around here.

 

If you would like to go back and read the rules more carefully. it is there is Rule 3.2.2

"Pick 1 of your celebrities as a Joker to double the points for that pick upon their death"

Oh I did mate, It's the interchangeability that got me I've not personally seen that.

Suffice to say, I did put a joker on one or other, so I'm good, thanks for replying.

 

 

I'm not about to put my pedants hat on about wildcard and joker not being the same thing at all... no sir, nor is it your fault if people have taken that as read previously :D.

I've not noticed it, but then I've historically spent my time simply having a laugh in this place rather than actually, you know, entering many deadpools :rolleyes:.

I think  (IMBW) that in the earliest versions of Hare's DP Deathray used the term wildcard instead of joker.  It's the same thing though.

Ach,

AIUI, A joker in cards is a specific type of wildcard, i.e. one that's always wild or isn't used at all. Any other card or even set of cards (trumps) could be a wildcard, depends on the game.

I don't know the history of how the term joker came to be used as a modifier for double points in a quiz, as here, though that doesn't seem to me to be the same thing really? :huh:

 

In any event, I said I wasn't gonna play pedants, and I'm not, not least because clearly I'm not certain where I really stand here (to be corrected probably :D).

 

That they are interchangeable here, no matter how much that confuses me, is settled and I'm sorted (and still won't trouble the leaderboard).

It might go back to the old "It's A Knockout" TV game show, where teams had a joker they could play to double their points on a particular round. 

There may be earlier uses.  Something to look into.

Well I don't read the whole deathlist.net forum all the time and not all the topics, mainly death pool topics, but I know the name Deathray. I have no idea who is who and who are the good guys and who the bad guys here. So I was wondering why did he get banned from the forum?

Deathray was a reasonable if grumpy* poster who had a habit of spamming the forum out 2 or 3 times a year and getting sent on holiday. Last two times involved apparently sending porn to the admins, so he got permanently banned. Now every other day one of his alts show up only for presumably Paul to machine gun them down. General gist is most of the forum would give him another chance but the admin team are fucked off with damage control, basically. I did plead leniency to the admin but the decision currently appears to be as immovable as the Rock of Gibraltar.

From time to time he has a meltdown and spams the board calling everyone cunts and wankers and telling us all to fuck off.  This usually resulted in a temporary ban which seemed to be his way of taking a break. 

I didn't get sent any porn, and was quite disappointed at being left out.

Frankly this forum probably isn't the place for anyone who took offence.

I didn't know there was a blind bit of difference, there's your explanation. Never been one for poker.

We used to call jokers - wildcards in this pool - I got sick of everybody calling them jokers anyway and changed it to jokers

Yeah, no worries Deathers, I didn't know the history of this pool and rightly or wrongly joker and wildcard have never been directly interchangeable in my mind so thought it might be two different things here as well, Sorted anyway.

I've finally gotten around to dealing with this pool after a busy few weeks in work - apologies all round. 

 

Deathray has already posted up a list of the teams in a fairly unreadable format. He seems to have gotten pissed off sorting the teams out half way through (understandably so, given that he was doing it over Christmas). I will now post them in a format which everybody can actually read. Ideally they should go on the front page, but as I did not set up the thread and Deathray didn't add any posts at the start for team lists, they will have to go here. A bit messy, but it cannot be helped. 

 

Deathray did post up a very comprehensive master list which has been hugely helpful in getting the pool going- a massive thanks to him for that. There are a number of discrepancies between the team lists posted earlier, and the master list. I will add another post detailing the discrepancies, and how they have been resolved. If anything is incorrect, please PM me ASAP to clarify. I will allow clarifications up to 11.59pm on 31st Jan. After that, nothing will be allowed to change.

There were 43 entries in 2019 and 2020, and 42 this year. For no other reason other than consistency, I have decided to add in a team consisting of the most popular picks this year. It will show if there is wisdom in crowds (doubtful given various election results around the world over the past decade).

The team is called ZZZ - Boring Average Team  (I wanted it last on the list, so it had to start with Z). I  will post it with the number of picks in brackets after each name. There were a number of names who each had 8 picks. I selected two of them as they were each a Wildcard pick for 1 team. The 3rd (Dilip Kumar) was picked at random.

The Wildcard is Tom Parker as he had the most Wildcard selections, even though Tom Smith was marginally the more popular pick.

 

Sadly, it looks like my own team closely matches that of the boring average team - I really need to become  more creative.

So as far as I can see. this is a list of the picks who have died so far:

 

Jan 1st: Floyd Little

Jan 1st: Mark Eden

Jan 2nd: Paul Westphal

Jan 2nd: Michael McKevitt

Jan 2nd: Brian Urquart

Jan 5th: Alan Burgess

Jan 7th: Tommy Lasorda

Jan 9th: Kathy Shaidle

Jan 13th: Sylvain Sylvain

Jan 14th: Peter Mark Richman

Jan 15th: Thomas "Mike" Miller

Jan 16th: Phil Spector

Jan 21st : Donna Britt.

 

That's quite an impressive list for a pool which rewards late deaths. It wouldn't look out of place in the Deathrace! If I have missed anyone, be sure to let me know.
