As far as I can tell there will be team averages calculated so I'm not sure it matters if there is a different number on the teams.

Feel free to join The Hoovers - I'm in the process of moving (it's a long process, too) and I may miss a challenge or six here and there.

Where is our ultimate sucky leader? What is the next step to showing how well we all suck?

I'm on it - at least I thought I was - my woody has just risen over 5. It'll droop.

Maybe we should make an offering or sacrifice to conjure up our fearless leader?

The next step is to enter one of the following challenges? morning/lighting3/oxymoron and do your sucky best (or worst).

This was from a few pages back - maybe can update this?


If I add my name to one of these teams is that going to upset the delicate balance? There appears to be four people on each team.


There will always be room for you...

So if one sub-team has five members does that mean that they all should? Or does it not really matter in the grand scheme of things?

okay, tell you what... it's Sunday. That means a new challenge will be announced at midnight EDT. That will start our first week of competition. Any other challenges announced this week will be fair game, particularly the Tuesday opens.

Possible scoring strategies:
1. For each player, I will take the high score for the week, and then average them together for the team average. That means each player has to enter at least one challenge per week.

2. I take the top three scores for each team and get the average, that means 3 out of 4 players have to play every week.

3. I simply take the top three scores, so for example if ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', '/') + 1) . ' raish enters three challenges in one week and scores higher than all his teammates, I will take the average of his scores. This means that each team has to enter 3 challenges per week.

4. I take the average of all the scores of a team. This requires that each team only has to enter at least 1 challenge per week TOTAL.

2 thru 4 have the advantage of not requiring as much work (yay!) but the disadvantage that some players are going to feel excluded some weeks. Then again, the whole point of competition is to feel good at the expense of someone else's misery... hmmm.... so what do you think? or come up with another voting method. I've also mentioned adding points for favorites given during the challenge.


The last I heard the scoring plan was #2 - if that is the case the number of players on a team doesn't necessarily matter as long as you have 3 members enter a challenge.
10/11/2006 03:43:17 PM · #236
I think the fearless leader is stuck in a work meeting right now, but I believe there was always a plan to make new teams if there was a need...

some of the unused names include:

team mercurial - hosting erratic patterns

team mellow - scores roll off our backs, dude

team aesthete - we put the fart in artsy-fartsy

...or make something up ;-)
10/11/2006 04:10:54 PM · #237
okay, I'm back online, at least for a little while...

My concern about 5 vs. 4 is that 5 definitely has an advantage, since the pool of scores is larger. Then again, ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' melismatica is known to have astral projections and leave her body/camera for weeks at a time, so that might be okay. And ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' meanwile is about to be off the grid for a while, so maybe ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' ragamuffingirl could be on Team Entropy.

The thing is, more people might want to join. Once everybody's in who wants to be in, I think we should come up with a balanced playing field. Maybe everyone will have 5 by then, and/or the remaining 4s can recruit a 5th... (in other words, I'm hoping everything just works itself out while I'm rocking on the back porch with my electric Kool-Aid)

And you are correct about the "live" challenges. Give us your best, your suckiest, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free!

I for one welcome all the other new suckers.

I love it!

We could say 4 is the min for a team and 5 or 6 the max? The team could recruit up to the max or not.

Yeah, good idea. 4 is min and 5 is max. and if we fill up and someone else wants to play, 3 5th wheels can abandon their teams to make another team.

I just entered Morning, and I predict a high of 5.1 but will probably end up below 5. Trying to come up with an idea for lighting, but I don't have much time so will have to wait for inspiration to strike on Monday. The Hoovers are off to a sucky start!
10/12/2006 05:19:59 PM · #246
Yay Hoovers! SUCK SUCK SUCK!!

:-)
10/12/2006 06:56:48 PM · #247
I don't even know if I'm going to enter Morning. I *hate* morning.

but I might try something on the way to work tomorrow.
10/12/2006 07:00:29 PM · #248
Good Morning is an oxymoron.
10/12/2006 07:04:35 PM · #249
It's dark here in the morning. It's still dark when I get to work. But maybe I'll try something on the weekend. Or not.

And I like the way you think, Mary. :-)
10/12/2006 07:15:01 PM · #250
Remember, it doesn't say "take a shot of the morning", it says "what does morning mean to you". (To me, it means another chance for a sucky score!)
