Strictly Come Dancing Rankdown


Recommended Posts

MdLKldF.png?1


Since some of the other full-length rankdowns are winding down and the DWTS International rankdown has sadly died, I decided to do a Strictly Come Dancing rankdown. I know one was attempted before, but it never really got off the ground and then it died for good with Old IDF, I wanted to run a SCD rankdown since I know the show has numerous viewers/fans. This will not begin until the final rankings for the Challenge and DWTS rankdowns have started because I know people have a lot of write-ups to do, but I wanted to get the thread up now.

 

The Rules:

-We will have a predetermined amount of rankers that will embark on a mission to collectively rank every reality star.

-At the beginning of the round random.org will determine the order the rankers will nominate.

-Whoever is chosen to nominate first will nominate a predetermined amount contestants and the other rankers will have 24 hours to save one contestant and eliminate one. To eliminate and save once the nominations have been revealed, it's first come first serve so get to it fast!

-Since this is a ranking you should have a writeup prepared for whoever you're cutting to explain your reasoning (they don't have to be too long, I expect just a minimum of 100 words).

-After decisions have been made on those contestants, the next ranker on random.org will do the same thing, nominate a predetermined number of contestants (you can not nominate anyone who was just saved in the last set of cuts though) and the other rankers will save one and eliminate one.

-We will cycle through all the rankers until they have nominated and then the round will end.

-At the beginning of each new round I will reveal a pre-planned twist to the round, and we will also create a new nominating order from random.org

-Once the nominations are posted you will have 24 hours to make your cut and save. If you do not make your cut in time (unless you tell me you're going to be away) you will get a strike and whoever made the nominations can make the cut and save. Three strikes and you're out and I get to name a new ranker in your place.  These rules will be strictly followed.

-If you wanto to get your cut in right when you see the nominations and wanna take time for your write-up, you can post who you're cutting and saving and then you'll have half an hour to make a new post with your write-up. However, the contestants is back up for grabs if you take too long to edit. When I say half an hour, I mean 30 minutes. If you make your cut and save at 12:15, you have until 12:45 to post your write up. Another ranker cannot swoop in and take your cut and save until 12:46! AS HOST I WILL ONLY ACCEPT 2 REFRESHES.

-Make sure all your nominees are within the confines of the twists and the rules of the game (i.e. no one who has already been eliminated or was saved last round are among your nominees). If this rule is broken, I'm afraid the round resets and you will have to completely renominate.

-THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO EDITING ALLOWED ON YOUR POST WHEN YOU ARE CUTTING AND SAVING! IF YOU EDIT THAT POST FOR ANY REASON AT ALL, YOUR CUT AND SAVE IS NULL AND VOID!

- In this addition of the Survivor Rankdown there will be challenges in between each cycle that could influence the game.  Rankers are encouraged to take part in these side games!

- If you agree to the the rules, when applying put a thumbs up emoji as your answer to the last question.

 

 

To Play:

-You don't have to have seen every season of the show, but I am expecting a broad knowledge of the show to participate. 

-Every time I have seen this game get played people will inevitably go for the big dogs and it WILL get cutthroat. If this does not sound like your kind of game don't sign up. DEALS ARE ENCOURAGED.

-I expect you to be active enough that you can write about 100 words about 1 contestant every 24 hours. If you don't think you can log on once a day to do at least that, don't sign up. If you plan on going on vacation or being away for a while, just let me know and I can get a substitution for you while you're away.

-There will be an application you have to fill out so I can make sure every ranker doesn't have the same preference. However, I do plan on choosing rankers who have seen the most seasons to participate.

-You don't have to even be super active on the boards to play! If you're a more mysterious poster, that might make it easier for you to hide your faves and help them sneak through the cracks.

It was. :dead: I was managing fine with just 4 rankers because I found an easy enough fix but I knew the Rankdown was doomed once Stephy disappeared. 😢

The thing that keeps me from joining a full rankdown are the write-ups because I don't think I can write 100 words about anyone, including myself. :lmao:

:dead:  the myself part. But DO IT, DO IT, DO IT!!

I believe in you! Just think of some of the write-ups you've probably read over the years from these rankers... Diana when she's mad, Alex when he's drunk, Megan when she doesn't know who it is (or they can't do a certain figure skating skill), Dee when the person is racist but he's too tired to go into detail... The standard is anything you want it to be!
