Another Sanity Rule

To make judging easier, I add the following "sanity" rule:

9. The winning entry must be listed in alphabetical order by forum, and the forum titles and FSME names must be exactly correct. Spelling counts.

Example:

Breaking Political News: FSME name
Canadian Politics: FSME name
Candidate Advocacy: FSME name
etc.

Yeah, I can make things up as I go.

It's politics, baby.




P.S. This is another hint. Those are the first three forums on my master FSME list.

Edit: Fixed tag problem. Guess this post is disqualified from winning.


Edit edit: ...and you only need to list the forums that actually have FSMEs. Details, details!

Final Judgment

For this phase, I request that contestants submit a single post which contains the following:

1. Who won first, with a link to that post (10000 PTS Points).

2. Who was second-closest before the winning post was made, with a link to that post (5000 PTS Points).

3. Who was third-closest before the winning post was made, with a link to that post (2000 PTS Points).

4. The post that first correctly stated the winners in order, with a link to that post (1000 PTS Points).

For this effort I will award the first such post which is fully correct 2000 PTS Points, in addition to any award points due.


About Post Linking

Above each post, to the right of the date and post id, is a link called "single". You can copy it by right-clicking on it and selecting "Copy link location" (or similar) and copy the link into a post.

These links, or other kinds of links which identify the specific post are acceptable. Such as:

www.abovetopsecret.com...

URL tags are optional.

When you say 100% correct are you counting capitalization?

Ex: correct lists contain "SminkeyPinkey" instead of "sminkeypinkey".

Also what if they are the first with the 17 correct, but have extras too? Would that still be a "1st place"?
