The Rules: -We will have a predetermined amount of rankers that will embark on a mission to collectively rank every film of the decade. -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 films and the other rankers will have 24 hours to save one film 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 whatever film 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 films, the next ranker on random.org will do the same thing, nominate a predetermined number of films (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. -If you wanna 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 film 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 writeup. Another ranker cannot swoop in and take your cut and save until 12:46! YOU CAN RESET YOUR TIME ONLY ONCE IF YOU ARE WORKING ON YOUR WRITEUP FOR A LONG TIME -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! To Play: -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 film every 24 hours. If you don't think you can log on once days 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 I don't have 7 or 8 rankers who all have similar opinions. However, I do plan on choosing rankers who have seen the most seasons to participate or first come, first serve. -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. -BY SIGNING UP YOU AGREE TO NOT MAKE PERSONAL ATTACKS ON ANY OTHER RANKERS DURING THE GAME. IT'S OKAY TO BE PASSIONATE AND IT'S OKAY TO MAKE AND BREAK DEALS. IF I HEAR THINGS ARE GETTING CRAZY BEHIND-THE-SCENES I WILL KICK YOU OUT OF THE GAME AND FEEL NO GUILT ABOUT DOING SO. The Application: Name (you'd like to be called during the game) - Top 10 films of the decade - Top 5 most overrated films of the decade - What's an unpopular film you're prepared to fight for? - Do you promise not to make any personal attacks and understand if you cross any lines, you will be kicked out of the game immediately? Will you be active at least once a day (barring emergencies?) - Edited May 15 by Alex95 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
