I'm afraid that won't be possible, thanks for the thought though!

 

I was only doing it as a favour, it's not my game and as I'm no longer playing, I'm not invested. I'm sure someone will be along to move this in due course. :)

I'm working on it. I let someone else explain the complicated situation here to YW / a recent post in the Hartlepool might help.

OK, it is sad though since you always do an excellent job. You are missed. Take care! I will change my postings above. :(

Hmmm - I love this pool but I can't really be arsed to beg someone to do something voluntarily.

 

I would suggest it is not beyond the bounds of possibility for the entrants to update the score ourselves as we go along for this year and then maybe someone will launch a Tortoise Dead Pool for next year based on the original idea of the Hare's (giving appropriate credit where it is due for the original idea).

Just to keep things in control without actually updating scoreboard - deaths noted on here (there may be others) since last scoreboard update on June 19th for Ian Holm and points outstanding.

 

Bernardino Pinera 21st June - 172 points

Everton Weekes 1st July - 182 points

Hugh Downs - 1st July - 182 points

Ennio Morricone - 6th July - 187 points

Judy Dyble 12th July - 193 points

 

I don't think Carl Reiner or Jack Charlton were picks in this pool.

So I'm just doing team spot checks to set up a system to update this, a special shoutout to @Predictor whose pick of Slim Andrews is a DNS due to death - in 1992.

 

Comfortably beats the previous record held by Margere Hein of a DNS due to death in 2004ish for some royal I can't be arsed to look up.

Okay then. I don't really have the time to host this full time and don't want to get into the situation where it never gets updated and it really would be a shame to see this die. 

 

@Grim Up North's suggestion of self-totting up is a good one to get us to the end of the year; this is a tool to make things a bit easier in that regard and hopefully make it easier for any new host who might want to step forward to take over from Willz. The only thing you need to do is key in the date of the persons pick* and their points total will be updated. (There's a back up before anybody thinks of playing silly buggers - but yes it's set to anyone can edit - if a dedicated host steps forward I'll change that to just them or they can copy the list into a new spreadsheet and edit it themselves). 

 

As far as I'm aware (some of the obscure names may have slipped through) it's up to date as of today. Cheers to GUM for above list of recent deaths. 

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1WhLgw9Cpc8_SmTWCb9aioCeEeMUP_l6CKju97Txggco/edit?usp=sharing

 

*I've had a few issues where the *2 for a wildcard pick hasn't been removed where I thought it had whilst copying the table for the next player, so you might want to double check that as well, but it's an easy fix and should be few and far between at this point.


@CaptainChorizo leads on 979 points by my reckoning.

I would have been more than happy to do this but it just doesn't work with the DDP commitment around end and start of the year. Sorry.

Completely understandable. I quoted you in reference to the post you put up, wouldn't want to you to think I was insinuating you should take over (the DDP is more than enough for anyone to handle.)

 

I've done as much as I can to make it as easy as possible for someone to take over. If someone does great, if not that's life and there's a system in place for people to update their own scores via that sheet (although I'd strong recommend anyone doing this has a ctrl+F of their pick and adds the date of death in for others as a courtesy.)

Hmm. You'd think he would move on to the afterlife by now, rather than still performing here among us mortals as a ghost...:ghost3:

Please double-check that the Slim Andrews I submitted is the musician born in 1931.

Edit: You really think I'd be daft enough to believe that someone born in bloody 1906 was still alive in Dec 2019? :D

You wouldn't be the first or the last. I'll update the sheet when I'm near a PC.

The inaccurate DNS claim has caused me a great deal of mental distress and anguish. As consolation, I request a bonus of 100 points minimum.

It's worth a shot. :rolleyes:

Oh, I just learned that my pick Hannelore Minkus, a German actress and voice over actress, has died in March 2020. Really didn't noticed that :(

And Sonja Ziemann is missing, but I think that her points are included. Thank you.

Those sort of teams fully of people who are more old than known to be ill, I'd be amazed if both of these teams got to December without at least 1 hit, but they won't be challenging for titles.
