A few thoughts:

What's the definition of a celeb? Does reality tv count? Newcaster? Anyone on tv/films? Pornstar? Sports star?

First tiebreakers should favor the player with most deaths.

The way the points work, if a person with 3 deaths tied a person with 7 deaths it means the person with 3 deaths picked 3 really young people that died compared to the person with 7 deaths picked some rather obvious people that were much older.

I am a fan of the tie breaking system. Also, not playing.

Celebrity is anyone of public interest. Political figures, tv show (reality tv shows included) newscasters, pornstars, sports stars - all count. Basically if it's someone of noteriety.

The reason the 1st tiebreaker goes to LEAST deaths is because it's point based (100 pts - age at death) , so it favors having a younger person die, which is harder to forecast than a 87 year old

Can we change the 10 day rule? If a nigga dies it dies. Count it up at the end of the year. Use wiki for verification.

I felt the 10 day rule would encourage people to keep up with their lists rather than put it all on me to wiki everyones list at the end of the year.

I guess we could change it if it's a big deal to people.

Let me know what ya'll think

I don't want to keep up.

I don't mind doing my own list at the end of the year.
