Steven_ Posted December 12, 2019 Share Posted December 12, 2019 (edited) TELEVISION SHOWS RANKDOWNA look back on the past 20 years in television RULES- This rankdown will focus on television shows that have aired new episodes since the year 2000. - A group of fifteen rankers will eliminate television shows until a winner is ultimately crowned. - At the start of a cycle, one ranker will nominate a list of TV shows for elimination. The other rankers will then choose to cut and save. The cut shows will be eliminated from the rankdown. The saved shows survive that round of nominations and will be immune from nominations the following round. - These rules will be standard for the beginning of the game, but they will change as the game progresses. Any new rules or twists will be announced at the beginning of a cycle. - Rankers will have thirty minutes to post a write-up of the show they are eliminating. Write-ups must contain at least 100 words and include an image related to that television show. Do not plagiarize. You can quote sources, but the write-up must have at least 100 original words. Discuss the plot of the show, what you like or do not like about the show, or anything else you feel is relevant. If you're writing about a show you are not familiar with, then do your research. Wikipedia should be enough to help you come up with 100 words of your own. - Cuts and saves are at a first come, first serve basis. Rankers can only refresh their choices once before the thirty-minute time limit. If you need to refresh again, then you'll need to refresh thirty minutes after your first refresh. Other rankers are free to swoop in and steal your claimed shows if you do not post a write-up within the designated time limit. - If a ranker does not post a write-up 24 hours after nominations were posted without asking for an extension, then the nominator or any other ranker is free to take over. -You must have watched plenty of television shows to play this game. You do not need to see every show included in this rankdown, but the most knowledgeable applicants will be selected to play.APPLICATIONIf you're interested in applying, then PM me a completed application. When filling out this application, be mindful that only shows that have aired from 2000 to present will be eligible. For example, Friends is eligible since new episodes were still airing in the 2000s despite premiering in the 90's. Seinfeld, however, is ineligible since its series finale aired in 1998.
