GUESS THE RESULTS!!
« on: June 16, 2010, 08:09:06 PM »
Two years ago, Wayoshi tried to set up a contest to guess the results of the awards.  However, he didn't allow enough time for people to vote and it was a bit too complicated.  The contest was put in action last year, though there were only three competitors (Tucky, Stoob, and me).  I ended up winning, and we all had a blast discussing who would win both on the chatroom and here on the forums.  This year, we're opening up the contest with nearly two months to get your votes in.

Rules:

-You do not have to have voted to participate. You can also participate if you are presenting award(s), see farther down. You also don't have to attend the ceremonies, as I will calculate all of the results of this beforehand, although it will be more exciting to keep tally of your score as we go along - your choice if it's worth it in that case.

-You can do Mario, Fail, 'Shroom and/or Userpedia, any single one, combo of two, three, or all four. There will be four achievements - highest score in each one, and highest combined total (must do all four to qualify for this one, of course).

DO NOT GUESS FOR S2, S4 AND S5.  THEY ARE WRITE-IN POLLS.

-You will have a chance to gain up to 15 points per award by guessing the Top 3 (gold, silver, bronze) nominees. Therefore, the max score is 450 for Mario, 150 for Fail, 75 for Userpedia and 30 for 'Shroom. and 750 total (the chances of acing any set is very low). You can get full credit for getting a nominee in the right spot, partial credit for getting a nominee that is in the Top 3 but in the wrong spot, or no credit for picking a nominee not in the Top 3 at all:
--Gold Exacta: 5 points
--Silver Exacta: 3 points
--Bronze Exacta: 2 points
--Any Spot: 1 point
--Miss: 0 points
--Trifecta (triple exacta): +5 points, therefore 5 + 3 + 2 + 5 = 15.

-I'll post an example so the meaning is clear, as well as show some intricacies so you can strategize. If the Top 3 of award A9001 is A, B, and C, then:
--C, B, D: C is in the top 3, but it is put as gold instead of bronze: 1 point. B is an exacta 3 points, D is nowhere to be found, 0 points. Total: 4
--C, D, A: Two spots are mixed up, but they still only count as 1 point each. Total: 2
--A, E, F: Salvaging gold can make a mess a decent amount. Total: 5
--C, E, F: You don't want to do this. Total: 1
--D, B, C: As close to a trifecta as this is, that miss is 0 instead of what would have been 5+5 points. Total: 5
--C, A, B: Getting the right three nominees isn't enough if they're all mixed up. Total: 3
--B, A, C: Again, this is pretty close to a trifecta, but... Total: 4
--As you should see, putting a gold in the wrong spot costs you more points (4) than a bronze (1), and that a trifecta is appropriately hard to earn and fairly easy to give up.

Here is the full list.  If you submit a red nominee, you didn't read the document.

-For any award you are presenting, you will receive a free 5 points.  This contest is opening before sign-ups (which will open July 1st), so any votes for an award you are presenting are cast before you sign up, they will be removed and replaced by 5 free points.  Do not guess the results of an award after you have signed up for it.  We know you are cheating.

AC MEMBERS: SUBMIT YOUR GUESSES BY JULY 15TH.  YOU WILL BE PUT IN CHARGE OF HANDLING SCRIPTS, WHICH INCLUDE RESULTS.

-Submit your entries here - you are free to edit them until right before the ceremonies begin UNLESS YOU ARE IN AC.. Look at other people's submissions if you want, but second-guessing has just as great a chance to add to your points as much as subtracting them! Keeping each award to one line would be appreciated, just putting "A#: A, B, C" will be read as gold, silver, bronze across the line.

That's gonna be determined by the AC.

BTW, this should be in a different thread.  Probably General Discussion.

No.  Results of the awards you are presenting will be sent to you over the next few days.  DO NOT GUESS RESULTS FOR AN AWARD YOU ARE PRESENTING.

Example:

You are doing A9, A16, F5 and F7.  You will receive the results for those awards so they can go in your presentation.
