Alt Obituaries Deadpool

Recommended Posts

That’s the thing though. If it’s not officialized there won’t be any points handed out for her. So, it’d be really annoying regardless

What constitutes an 'officialized' obituary for alt obituaries dead pool?

 

A celebrity on my list died, I submitted a URL of a news obituary but it didn't have a death date so it wasn't acknowledged, and i remain uncredited.

Now Wikipedia has updated with a DoD, and a newspaper has an obit with a DoD. I've been snapped at by the admin in the past for using Wikipedia and, oddly, alt.obituaries sources like film historian James Neibaur (death was a hoax, but neither Neibaur nor I was aware of that at the time) for death citations: where else would one find an acceptable obituary with date of death if not an online newspaper obituary sectionor Wikipedia?

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.

Clive James is a hit for 17 people, including me.  Other top ten players who had him are Gerard Tierney and Deceased Hose. The only change in the top ten, standings-wise, is Deceased Hose breaking a tie for 10th.

I dropped Stuart Fraser from my list. However, if no date of birth or age ever shows up, it might not matter anyways...

I'd say Kirshner's lead over me and Joey is about 2 hits or 1 hit that falls btwn Dec 25-31. Due to bonuses I still think anyone from 11 on up with a Beastmode Dec still has a punchers chance even if it looks like a repeat winner is in the cards

Same here.  Seems like longer ago, but it was 2018.  Presumably someone still has him because he's not been added to the 'Strikeouts' list.  Meanwhile, I also miss with Shelley Morrison, who I had in 2010.
