Hey all! Remember last year when I put up a poll and you all wanted a slaughterhouse? And I was all "ehh, no"? Yeah, well that seemed to be the more popular option, so that's what I'm doing this year! (If you all want a poll, well I could do that too)
So welcome one and all to the Pseudopod Best of 2011 Slaughterhouse!
It promises to be a bloody match!
So, rules! Each story begins the match with one point. Once a day, remove a point from one 2011 story and give it to another.
Stories with zero points remaining 'die'. However, since this is Pseudopod, the dead can rise again. A little necromancy is okay in the Slaughterhouse. A story with zero points can be resurrected, but only once. (I think that's a fun idea, speak up if you disagree or want to add a caveat to the rule. I like it because it will let some people who didn't see this right away to resurrect a story they really liked if it is already dead. Also, I'll keep track of any story that has been resurrected to make sure it only comes back once) Dead stories are posted below the list and crossed out.
The winner is the story with the most points at the end of the match, when all but three stories are dead.
Remember to post the full list of stories when you cast your vote, and to bold your +'s and -'s. Also be sure to make it clear when you resurrect a story. And be sure to refresh the page and check for new posts before you post.
I hope I'm not forgetting anything... shrug.
Like last year, trash talk is encouraged. This is a fight, after all. I'll give y'all a bit of leeway
I'd like to thank Fenrix
for putting together the list of 2011 stories for me. So, come enter the Slaughterhouse, but watch your step, you never know what might be crawling around in here.
