That means that all immunities have expired and those models are now fair game for nominations. As you all know, ANTM often splits the models up into groups for challenges and photoshoots, which is the inspiration for this next cycle. When it is your turn to nominate, you will be nominating 14 models. However, you will be breaking those models up into 2 groups of 7. A vote will then be held where the other 7 rankers will PM me to vote for which group they want to save. The group with the most votes will be saved and the other group will be eliminated. Once I reveal the results, each of the 7 rankers who voted is responsible for doing 1 write-up for an eliminated model. These write-ups will be done on a first come, first serve basis. NOMINATION ORDER 1. @*Chris 2. @#jeah 3. @jarmon 4. @FrogLenzen 5. @Zoey 6. @*Diana 7. @*Lily 8. @Alex95 CYCLE RULES 1. When it is their turn, each ranker will nominate 14 models, split into 2 groups. 2. The rankers will PM me with their vote for which group to save. 3. Once the results are announced, each ranker who voted must do a write-up for 1 of the eliminated models. These will be done on a first come, first serve basis. 4. You have 24 hours from the time nominations are posted to vote. 5. You have 24 hours from when the results are posted to do your write-ups. 6. I will start being stricter with deadlines this cycle. Please ask for extensions if you need them. 5. You cannot nominate any model who was saved in the round immediately before yours. Our new ranker Chris will start off the cycle. You cannot nominate: Shandi Sullivan Kahlen Rondot Nik Pace Melrose Bickerstaff Renee Alway Anya Kop Lio Tipton Celia Ammerman Molly O'Connell Jourdan Miller Lenox Tillman Lacey Rogers Khrystyana Kazakova Jeana Turner We last held an ANTM rankdown in 2019 on Old!IDF before the site crashed. Sadly, that entire rankdown except the top 20 countdown was lost in the crash. Since it's been a few years and with the ANTM Photos Mini-Rankdown currently happening, I thought it would be fun to do another full-fledged ANTM Rankdown. This won't begin for a couple of weeks, but I wanted to get it posted. ANTM RANKDOWN 1.0 WINNER: DANIELLE EVANS INTRODUCING THE ANTM RANKDOWN 2.0 RANKERS ALEX (@Alex95) AKSHAR (@jarmon) ANDY (@#jeah) DEREK (@FrogLenzen) DIANA (@*Diana) LILY (@*Lily) CHRIS (@*Chris) REI (CYCLES 1 & 2) (@.Rei) ZOEY (@Zoey) The Rules: -We will have a predetermined amount of rankers that will embark on a mission to collectively rank every model. -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 of models and the other rankers will have 24 hours to save one model 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 models, the next ranker on random.org will do the same thing, nominate a predetermined number of models (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 anyone else 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 model 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 model 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 (However you want to be referred as during this game) - Seasons Seen - Top 5 Models - Bottom 5 Models - Which 3 models do you find overrated? - Will you be active at least once every 24 hours? - Do you promise not to engage in personal attacks and understand I will kick you out of the game if you find out you are? - Edited February 13 by *Amanda Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
