Well, in general, things seem to be running smoothly into month 2 . . . . . except for an exchange between Sir Creep and gcreptile that I don't think pertains to anything that happened in this game, or if it does, it went over my head.  However, then Sir Creep posted a team that was an intentional exact replicate of gcreptile's that was just posted, and I did reserve the right to penalize such a tactic.  The penalty is partially already built in to the format, as all those names will earn Sir Creep one less point if they hit than they will for gcreptile.  But since it was intentional and I am trying to discourage the strategy, I will also doc Sir Creep his first Feb hit.  If no hits occur in Feb, then no harm done, and we start over in March.  But from here on out, let's play nice boys.  Don't make me hate being the commish.  

Although I feel it is less complicated than last year since you don't have to worry about ranking the names to point value and avoiding previously taken point slots, note that it is still important to keep track of how many times a name appears on posted lists!  Point in case:  as of Clorox Bleachman's post Walter Jones had been used 5 times so his value was down to 1 point.  So all lists using Walter Jones after that are wasting a slot as he is now worth zero (Banana, Joey).  That is all I will say on that and in the future if you get a hit and score zero points . . . . . you know why.  

We have 21 Feb teams in already, and with all the different names it is likely to be a busy month of scoring.  I will post a table in the next couple of days.

Hmm, call me a traditionalist, but I very much miss the old format :duck:

 

1) Leah Bracknell (3 pts)

2) Paul Flynn (4 pts)

3) Nobby Stiles (4 pts)

4) Murray Walker (5 pts)

5) Ruth Bader Ginsburg (3 pts)

Only because of your post did I finally unterstand the scoring system...

The above table is posted with the teams in order in which they were posted for Feb.  I am thinking that although this table does not show the standings without a lot of effort, it makes it easier to follow the decrease in point value for names that are used by multiple teams.  I will post the standings separately each month for clarity on those.  Three teams have yet to come in, and we got a new entry even though the game is closed (ebless).  I will consider letting latecomers into the game if it appears teams that signed on in Jan bail out and don't submit this month.  The last 3 teams may fall in that category.  I think the strategy here is interesting, with the push and pull of the incentives to post early vs. the disincentives of losing out on scoring opportunities. 

We already have scoring for Feb with Andrew McGahan!!  I personally missed a double 5 pt score with him by one day - he was top name on my Jan list.  Cest la vie.

Shouldn't CB have 4 Jan points instead of 1?

Current standings (Feb 11th):

14   clorox

9    capn cho/gcrep

8   sir c

7    JMoney

5    MadHat/FixBus/msc/JRuss/Bentro/wormy

3    oldlady/newjack

2    quim/banana

1    Yorkshire Banker

Everyone else has squat. 

 

I am allowing a new entrant in because it looks like up to 3 slackers may have dropped out already as they haven't ponied up a Feb team.  Welcome to ebless, who has submitted the following:

stan bowles

vera lynn (4)

doddie weir

stirling moss (4)

herman wouk (3)

 

I am not adding him to the table above as of yet due to formatting difficulties with the original post.  I will start including his team with the others next month, but his list is now active.

all is now right in Bentrovato's world

Do you mind!!! I have waited 13 months for my first points and RIP Windsor Davies gave me 5 of them. Yet not mentioned. I feel slighted.

Not at all.  I appreciate poolers like you that follow the scoring and help keep it straight.  You had credit in Jan, and somehow in my translation to the Feb table it got vaporized.  All fixed now, nothing personal.

These points are precious. As judging  by my previous attempts  to predict the passing of anyone my next points will not be until March 2020. I must dine out on these for the rest of the year.
