Top 20 Popularity Game!

I hope this works

I thought this could be a good idea for a game. Basically the whole top 20 starts with 40 points:

Victoria Azarenka - 40
Maria Sharapova - 40
Petra Kvitova - 40
Caroline Wozniacki - 40
Agnieszka Radwanska - 40
Sam Stosur - 40
Marion Bartoli - 40
Na Li - 40
Vera Zvonareva - 40
Andrea Petkovic - 40
Serena Williams - 40
Francesca Schiavone - 40
Sabine Lisicki - 40
Jelena Jankovic - 40
Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova - 40
Julia Goerges - 40
Ana Ivanovic - 40
Dominika Cibulkova - 40
Shuai Peng - 40
Angelique Kerber - 40

When you repost, you +1 to your fave and -1 to your least fave (or whoever you fancy voting for.) Over time, one by one the players will be eliminated and we will end up with the player deemed most popular (or most middle of the road and nobody has voted for, whilst the others have all recieved too many negative votes.)

The one rule is that once you +1/-1, you have to wait until at least 3 more posters have made their scores until you post again.

Great idea!

Victoria Azarenka - 40
Maria Sharapova - 41
Petra Kvitova - 40
Caroline Wozniacki - 40
Agnieszka Radwanska - 40
Sam Stosur - 41 (+1)
Marion Bartoli - 40
Na Li - 40
Vera Zvonareva - 40
Andrea Petkovic - 39
Serena Williams - 39
Francesca Schiavone - 40

Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova - 40
Julia Goerges - 40

Dominika Cibulkova - 40
Shuai Peng - 40

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Top 20 Popularity Game!

This has been played before. Im telling you now start with a number lower than 40 or it will go on forever.

Re: Top 20 Popularity Game!

I think the only trouble with this is that some posters may edit their lists at the same time, leading to confusion in scores.

Re: Top 20 Popularity Game!

3 more posters only? Really? I've played this game on other forums, but you'd have to wait 24 hours between each post. Thought that might take forever...
