Who will be the Orange Mane Survivor?!
Welcome to the Orange Mane Survivor Thread.
No prize for winning, except for bragging rights and personal enmity.
Each 48 hours, each contestant may PM me with 1 vote to kick one other contestant off the “island.” I will announce any changes to the schedule.
You may not vote for yourself.
You will be allowed to abstain once and only once, and the abstention must occur during the first 6 rounds. If you miss a vote after round 6, or if you miss more than 1 vote in the first 6 rounds, you will be automatically eliminated, in addition to whoever was eliminated by the majority vote. Voting past the deadline or voting for someone who has already been eliminated or voting against your Master of Ceremonies, or voting against someone who has won immunity are all illegal and will be counted as missed votes.
All voting will be in PMs to me (and secret to that extent) but all votes will be made public after they are tallied.
You can make whatever alliances you want, but you can break them at will and backstab anyone whenever it suits you.
After the first 6 persons are eliminated, there will be “immunity challenges.” These will be fairly simple and reasonably objective. For example: “Guess the winner, total points scored and total number of free-throws missed in the Lakers-Rockets game on such and such a night.”
I do not care who wins, or how you conduct yourselves, so long as we don’t get banned. You may, of course, bribe or blackmail other players for their votes, to your heart’s content. The general rules for posting at the Orange Mane apply. No porno, no blatant spamming. Good-natured taunting and ridiculing in the context of the game is okay. But keep it within the game. Use your common sense.
The final winner will be determined by a jury vote from persons who have been previously eliminated. This does not necessarily mean all 14 previous "victims."
In that regard, the only thing that really counts are the ratings, and so I reserve the right to change any or all of the rules at any point in time to drive up the ratings.
In cases of tied votes to eliminate someone, the person who has the most total previous votes against them will be shipped off the island. I will refer to these as "wounds" and will keep a running tally. If that is also tied, the next tiebreaker will be "scalps." You earn a "scalp" when you have successfully participated in voting someone else off the island in the round in which they were eliiminated. I will keep a tally of these as well. If that is also tied, I will devise a "sudden death" tiebreaker..
All discussion concerning the contest, including announcements, taunting, mocking, vote tabulations, etc., will be confined to this thread unless otherwise noted.
Once you are eliminated, you are dead. You cannot be voted back onto the island. However, that doesn't mean you won't have your chance for revenge. Bwahahahahhaaa!
I will NOT generally announce the trend or the status of any particular vote until it is done. That way, no one should expect an information advantage by withholding their vote until the last possible second. What I might do, if I want to speed things up, is announce who has voted and who we are still waiting on. But once the deadline is passed, it has passed.
Any dispute about any of the rules is in my total discretion. Do not screw with your host.
Non-players generally do not get to vote, but are welcome to post comments to this thread. So if you're not a player, settle back with your popcorn. It's all about the ratings. There may be a round later in the game when the public gets to vote for something. So entertainment value is a plus.
And now, our fearless All-Star cast of players:
3. Mile High Shack
15. Clockwork Orange
PM me with your first elimination vote by noon, Saturday, March 19.
Let the games begin ...
