It sounds reasonable to not have the notification/10 day rule... I guess it won't be too hard to do peoples lists, it was late and I was tired when I wrote the rules up

I was going to suggest a draft before David just rattled off a bunch.

thought about draft, but it seems like this sort of thing is better left to just lists (especially with the duplicate scoring deduction)

you in?

I don't like the idea of a draft because it takes too long and there are so many options.

Can we set the 100 number a little lower? 90-X or 85-X should provide better lists. Picking old people takes away from this.

I think we can also submit a list of 20 with 3 alternates. More possibility of points means less reliance on tiebreakers.

the 100 is a tried and true scoring, not gonna fiddle with that.

I'm fine with 20/3 lists if people wanna do it that way though

BTW, do political figures count as celebs? I mean, we all know Bashar Al Assad is probably going to die in the next year, so that one's kind of a gimme.

Nah, it's a tad morbid. There's a local radio guy who was 2 for 3 on their show's annual death poll this year. I couldn't deal with that sort of power.

I vote that Corenerd should change his avatar. That's a pretty big and revealing plot point.
