It'll be rocking again when the list is something people are very opinionated/passionate about. Like best superhero or something.

am also hoping this one picks up again next round. thinking the worst to best idea wasn't such a good one. still think the idea of a clock might be good i.e. all entrants lose one point every twenty-four hours. if it's just the three of us left, suspect the list might finish up as above.

I think a clock would help. Something like once every 24 hours, entrants lose one point sounds good to me.

So here are my original rules...

Here are the rules for playing Knock Out.

1. A Knock Out List is presented for a ranking battle (examples: superheroes, movie trilogies, breakfast cereals, etc.).

1a. To avoid confusion, the Knock Out List presenter may choose to add an additional objective; for example, posting the topic "NFL TEAMS" could mean favorite team, best mascot, best coaching staff, etc. (examples: best superpower, worst third movie, best cartoon mascot, etc.)

2. List entries begin with 15 points.

3. Anyone may vote, but you are limited to one ballot per 24 hour period (note: if you vote at 11:59 PM your time, yes, you may vote again at 12:01 AM your time).

4. A ballot may include up to three votes according to these rules:

3a. During Phase One, votes may be one (+) or two plus (++) or one (-) or two minus (--).

3b. During Phase Two, votes may be one plus (+) or one (-) or two minus (--).

3c. Phase Two begins when half of the list entries have been knocked out (for example, if there are 15 entries, Phase Two begins when the eighth entry is knocked out).

5. When an entry loses all points (ending with zero or negative points), it is Knocked Out and moved out of the battling list and into the ranking list.

6. Knock Out rounds continue until there is a single entry left and a final ranking is available.

7. The BrainDen player who posted the final Knock Out has rights to post the next Knock Out List. Another eager player may choose to post a new Knock Out List if the player with honors hesitates for more than 24 hours of his/her final Knock Out of the previous list.

And here are the NEW Rules, with the community changes.

Here are the rules for playing Knock Out.

1. A Knock Out List is presented for a ranking battle (examples: superheroes, movie trilogies, breakfast cereals, etc.).

1a. To avoid confusion, the Knock Out List presenter may choose to add an additional objective; for example, posting the topic "NFL TEAMS" could mean favorite team, best mascot, best coaching staff, etc. (examples: best superpower, worst third movie, best cartoon mascot, etc.)

2. List entries begin with 13 points.

3. Anyone may vote, but you are limited to one ballot per 24 hour period (note: if you vote at 11:59 PM your time, yes, you may vote again at 12:01 AM your time).

4. A ballot may include up to three votes according to these rules:

4a. During Phase One, votes may be one (+) or two plus (++) or one (-) or two minus (--).

4b. During Phase Two, votes may be one plus (+) or one (-) or two minus (--).

4c. Phase Two begins when half of the list entries have been knocked out (for example, if there are 15 entries, Phase Two begins when the eighth entry is knocked out).

5. Time Clock Rule: Every time the Knock Out List presenter submits a ballot, s/he must reduce all entries by one point.

5a. This is in addition to the KOL presenter's votes. So if "Superman" has 8 points, and the KOL presenter votes Superman --, Superman will be reduced by the KOL presenter's vote (to 6) AND by the time clock rule (to 5).

6. When an entry loses all points (ending with zero or negative points), it is Knocked Out and moved out of the battling list and into the ranking list.

7. Knock Out rounds continue until there is a single entry left and a final ranking is available.

8. The BrainDen player who posted the final Knock Out has rights to post the next Knock Out List. Another eager player may choose to post a new Knock Out List if the player with honors hesitates for more than 24 hours of his/her final Knock Out of the previous list.

Note: I split the difference between 15 starting points and 11 because with the new Time Clock Rule, I don't want to swing the game the other way and cause it to move too quickly. Also, the number 13 is kind of cool.

If an awesome moderator wants to edit my first post with these new rules, I would welcome it.

It's so busy! And the people are either weird or rude!

I prefer calmer, less busy places. :P
