Death By Numbers 2019

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

 

after Phantom of the Midway's year of professional high-quality hosting it is now me who is going to handle this massive deadpool that we all love just BECAUSE it is so big.

Here is where you can dump all the rare names you had no use for and then pat yourself on the back for finding them.

 

The general rules:

Send me 50 main team names by pm or just post them in this thread, if you want, from right now until Dec 31st 2018, 23:59 GMT - preferably alphabetically.

 

You can choose one joker with double points - and you can also submit up to five substitutes in case one of your 50 dies before the end of the submission window. You may also choose new subs before the game starts if they die.

 

The scoring rule is slightly changed to make room for the people of the 21st century. Instead of the last two digits of the year of birth (i.e. 1934 = 34 points), we will now have the scoring rule [year of birth] - 1900 = score. So someone born in 2000 will get 100 points in case of death, instead of the "00" under the old rule. Every other year of birth sees no difference.

 

You may submit the following people: living, not having set a precise date of death (by execution, dignitas, or whatever), at least 18 years old on January 1st 2019, and being somewhat notable.

 

"Somewhat notable" means: they should at least be notable for something else aside from being terminally ill. "Something else" being something that has an effect on society. Terminally ill activists are okay if they've done at least something generally beneficial, a campaign, a book, a court case, or fundraising that might affect other people. If they're only in the news because of their tragedy or because they need our sympathy I will not accept them. So no "cancer mums with cancer kids", no "terminally ill fans", no "ordinary person in a coma because of a car crash". This also counts for brothers/sisters/children of notable people - unless they are so notable that every relative is also notable by default, like the House of Windsor, or maybe the Bush family. Unfortunately, it is me who will decide if the person is famous enough. Previous BBC coverage in whatever form will convince me.

 

Substitution phase: On the 1st of July 2019 GMT you may switch 5 old people for 5 new ones for whom all the above rules also apply. 

 

When is a hit a hit: If the person permanently dies in 2019 (GMT!) and their death gets noticed in written form by qualifying media outlets within 2019 or the first seven days of 2020.

 

The qualifying media outlets, i.e. QO rules are as such: Everything accepted by the Derby Dead Pool 2019 plus The New York Times.

 

 

Your host:

I will also submit a team and will do so two posts below, quickly after this post. I will hide the names with "XXXXX XXXXX" and reveal them on January 1st.

I will not make use of the mid-year substitution.

I will not read your submission emails until January 1st (I think you can check that) to prevent the impression that I might take a name from your posts for other deadpools. This also means that I might discuss borderline acceptable picks with you on January 1st or 2nd. We will have to talk then. If you're unavailable I might simply replace an unqualifying name with one of your substitutions.

If you post your team right in this thread, you save me some work but also give away names. If you pm me, please make sure that I know what the mail is about in the header "Death By Numbers", "Team submission" or something like that.

If you have other questions, you can also ask in this thread!

Right, so alphabetically by first name as above, or by second name, as I assumed? @gcreptile

Technically it doesn't matter as long as everyone uses the same method. Well, I have it by second name in my excel file and would prefer that. But then, any kind of order already helps.

 

Also, my sub number five was Zhang Ouying.

 

Edit: 2020 thread opening text for storage

 

Hello Everyone,

 

as the 2019 season is coming to a close and two contestants are trying to have that lucky shot at the end of the current competition, let us take a look forward and announce the 2020 version of the Death By Numbers deadpool.

Initially designed by Shaun of the Dead / Sean, then hosted by RadGuy / Phantom of the Midway, then taken over by me, this is where you can all the names you didn't quite have the space for in your other teams - because this is where you have to enter 50 names for a complete team.

 

The general rules:

Send me 50 main team names by pm or just post them in this thread, if you want, from Dec 1st until Dec 31st 2019, 23:59 GMT.

You can choose one joker with double points - and you can also submit up to five substitutes in case one of your 50 dies before the end of the submission window. You may also choose new subs before the game starts if they die.

 

Submission form:

A little change from last year - just give them in the normal "First name", "Last name" format

You don't need to number them before! No birthdays anymore! And only note their claim to fame if there might be confusion, for example:

Kamala Harris (wrestler)

Kamala Harris (US senator)

 

My intent is to be able to just enter the submission into excel and connect them with my database. The rest should follow.

 

 

The scoring is [year of birth] - 1900 = score. So someone born in 2001 will get 101 points in case of death

You may submit the following people: living, not having set a precise date of death (by execution, dignitas, or whatever), at least 18 years old on the beginning of January 1st, 2020, and being somewhat notable.

 

"Somewhat notable" means: they should at least be notable for something else aside from being terminally ill. "Something else" being something that has an effect on society. Terminally ill activists are okay if they've done at least something generally beneficial, a campaign, a book, a court case, or fundraising that might affect other people. If they're only in the news because of their tragedy or because they need our sympathy I will not accept them. So no "cancer mums with cancer kids", no "terminally ill fans", no "ordinary person in a coma because of a car crash". This also counts for brothers/sisters/children of notable people - unless they are so notable that every relative is also notable by default, like the House of Windsor, or maybe the Bush family. Unfortunately, it is me who will decide if the person is famous enough. Previous BBC coverage in whatever form will convince me.

Small addition: "Oldest Person of XYZ" will always be allowed - even a completely irrelevant person (in the grand scheme of things) will be accepted if they are the oldest person of their country, or last survivor of World War II, Korean War, etc... Usually those people do not give many points, but maybe 5 pts is better than zero? Anyway, I will allow them.

 

Substitution phase: On the 1st of July 2020 GMT you may switch 5 old people for 5 new ones for whom all the above rules also apply. 

 

When is a hit a hit: If the person permanently dies in 2020 (GMT!) and their death gets noticed in written form by qualifying media outlets within 2020 or the first seven days of 2021.

 

The qualifying media outlets, i.e. QO rules are as such: Everything accepted by the Derby Dead Pool 2020 plus The New York Times.

 

Your host:

I will also submit a team and will do so two posts below and hide the names with "XXXXX XXXXX" and reveal them on January 1st.

I will not read your submission emails until January 1st (I think you can check that) to prevent the impression that I might take a name from your posts for other deadpools. This also means that I might discuss borderline acceptable picks with you on January 1st or 2nd. We will have to talk then. If you're unavailable I will replace an unqualifying name with one of your substitutions.

If you post your team right in this thread, you save me some work but also give away names. If you pm me, please make sure that I know what the mail is about in the header "Death By Numbers", "Team submission" or something like that.

If you have other questions, you can also ask in this thread!

Sorry, I assumed you wanted it alphabetically by first name rather than last name since your example list didn't have commas after the first word of each entry.

No problem. In fact, I thank you for your early submission. That gives me time to sort it out in advance. And it gives me something to test in Excel.
