Whilst all the usual scoring and competing and ranking malarkey goes on in official realms, this thread will track its own competition, the teams who win the most alternative ribbons from Team Underground (who is therefore excluded from competition). Points will be assessed in a suitable arcane way (top award is 4 points, next is 3 points, next is 2 points, and if there is a fourth category it's 1 point), but the competition is simple. You'll be ranked by points on this page, and I'll keep updating this page as more ribbons get awarded. No head-to-head competition or anything like that. When DPL is over, the 4 top earners will each receive a virtual ribbon.

RULE CHANGE - all posthumous ribbons and Team Spleen results are included in the point totals. Ribbons should be awarded before the challenge is done, to preserve anonymity.

So everyone on the team will get a ribbon? Not quite figuring this out but thinking it's a cool idea.

yes, to keep to the DPL team spirit, the entire team gets a ribbon.

This is cool! I think our team (Imagenation) has the right blend of class, sass and quirky to be in the running for both DPL and Underground! ;) We intentionally chose a diverse team -- and thank you for honoring more diverse photos.

for clarification, I don't post the points here until the awards get posted in the Posthumous Ribbons thread

Wow, thanks Team Underground for giving us another reason to work and play hard in this competition. That really is a wonderful addition to the games.

I was wondering what all those awards were about, sound like fun!
06/22/2015 10:08:54 PM · #9
I can't think of a good reason that Team Underground needs to count themselves out. Anybody?
And I encourage all those on the fence to get into the alt award game. Live a little!

Whoa! A virtual ribbon to the winners?!

I'm in!

I LOVE VIRTUAL RIBBONS! I've almost sold my soul for one of them.

Good fun!

Thanks bunches!

Very, very nice. Thank you for doing this.

I don't understand what you are suggesting. They could not help one another as a team all week and then give one another ribbons, could they? They can't even comment on teammates' images until after voting has ended. I think part of the point to Posthumous awards has always been to give them BEFORE challenge results are announced.

Correct but I could count *all* the posthumous ribbons and the team spleen awards
06/23/2015 01:51:01 AM · #15
I think that would be fair.

That would be cool.

I think it would be nice if the underground could be included in this. They can get points for any bling other than their own. Yes.
06/23/2015 08:34:22 PM · #18
ok, will do. give me time to count.
06/24/2015 08:55:10 AM · #19
ok, I've updated the rules and recalculated points. Anyone can influence these scores by giving ribbons in the posthumous ribbons thread (if you want to do it in a different thread, you will have to notify me). The only rule here is to award your ribbons *before* voting is done.

Imagenation and Team Spleen are still tied for first.

Tea party is most improved, moving up to 6th place... and Longshots is now on the board.
06/24/2015 06:21:19 PM · #21
Thanks for doing this Don! And, interesting to see that the teams tied in first place are quite differently placed in the 'official' DPL with 87 and 36 percentiles - just shows the depth of Imagnations crew :)
06/29/2015 01:28:40 PM · #22
Team Spleen takes the lead!

Bokeh Nights surge into 4th place!

The Underachievers join the party!
06/29/2015 03:32:19 PM · #23
And fun is had by all..
