JAVA JIVE "LAUGH-IN" TOURNAMENT
WELCOME TO JAVA JIVE “LAUGH-IN” TOURNAMENT
Some favorite lines from George Carlin:
- If it’s true that our species is alone in the universe, then I’d have to say that the universe aimed rather low and settled for very little.
- Just when I discovered the meaning of life, they changed it.
- Weather forecast for tonight: Dark. Continued dark overnight, with widely scattered light by morning.
- One great thing about getting old is that you can get out of all sorts of social obligations just by saying you’re too tired.
GENERAL RULES AND INFORMATION: (Please read) The Tournament consists of teams consisting of 2 members. The Java Jive will commence on September 23, 2013. Signup will close on Sunday, September 22nd at 8PM GMT. Competition will consist of six (6) specific subject Brainoffs of 10 questions beings sent everyday for five days. Only the Tournament Mistress and her Partner in Crime have knowledge of the subjects to be sent. Be warned, these subjects are not for the faint-hearted. Players must be available to play every day for the whole week. Please do not let your teammate down by signing up and then not playing once competition commences.
Teams will be randomly formed. All one has to do to sign up is post the message “I’m in” and you will be matched with another member to form a team. All team names need to based on an "COMEDIAN". Male or Female. But please try to keep it short as names are combined to form a team name. Please post an 'COMEDIAN' beside your “I’m in’ message. Team matchups will be posted in the forum.
The Tournament Mistress will match team members based on IDs so that those who have been members the longest will be matched with those who have been here the shortest length of time. Teams will be posted on September 22nd. You will receive brainoffs from ‘Java Jive’. A progressive Results Table will be posted in a public forum available to all team members. In the case of a tie (mathematically this works out as 1/10¯⁴²~ x 100) The Tournament Mistress or Official Partner in Crime will send three (3) specific subject brainoffs to break the tie. The individual scores for each team member will be added together to form a cumulative team total. The team with the highest cumulative total wins. In case the Factacular site hiccups, we will spring into action and resolve issues as soon as the site is up and running and continue with the competition.
We do respectfully ask that everyone play their challenges as soon as possible after receiving them --- you will be less likely be affected if the site goes down. We will only replay challenges if the site is down for more than 12 hours. We will not replay for anyone letting the challenge time out or for minor site glitches.
AND FINALLY, The Tournament Mistress and her Partners in Crime volunteer their own time, so have some patience with the resolution of any problems that you may encounter and expect that there may be delays in the immediate posting of results. Please send a private message to Javalyne or JMK if you encounter problems or discrepancies. Decisions made by The Tournament Mistress and her Partners in Crime are final and no correspondence will be entered into. Invite other members to come and play! Everyone gets an award and most of all --- everyone has fun!
Post a joke if you feel like - everyone needs a good laugh!
