Welcome to the yet to be named thing Iím doing with yet to be announced rules. Itís all underground and mysterious and nothing is what it seems.

Hello all, We do this thing at this site where, each week, we pick out what we feel is the best review of the week. Then we dish out kudos and forget about it. NO MORE! Thanks to a needlessly complicated mathematical procedure thatís certainly more complex that you might initially believe I bring to the masses what is essentially a year-long rolling league table depicting who consistently does better than the majority. See why Iíve not come up with a name yet?

Sod it. Weíll call it The EmPies. ô.

At some point, maybe Iíll pimp this topic up with spinner rims and a dump clutch. For now, though, I wonít. Itís a design choice.

So, then, The EmPies ô. Itís something you take part in whether you want to or not. Here, in this topic, will be a hastily implemented HTML table Iíve probably just about coded correctly. Within their hallowed but simplistic borders that may or may not line up will sit three names -- and three only. Iím not going to mess around with outside the podium losers; if youíre not in the top three, you need to spend the time vigorously training, not admiring your shady position on the EmPie ô ranking ladder.

Lets have a look now how things stand.


FIRST: Suskie

SECOND: OD

THIRD: Joe



That went about as bad as it could of. Balls to it -- it stays!

And hereís a wholesome, enjoyable achieve. Kids seem to love that kind of shit.

Do not question the EmPiesô. Instead, question whether Iím able to keep this updated for an entire year. Or if I'll ever fix the table.


For us. For them. For you.

Hahaha. The witticisms in here are hilarious.

You know what else would be cool? If you tallied the number of placements for the top three, too. Just to see how many times they've placed. And what happens if, say, Joe who won this week, then wins third next week? Where would he be in the table assuming the other two stay the same?

Also, if you're linking to RotW topics, you'll need to make sure they're immune to purging, or else the links will break after a few months.

Anyway, this is a cool idea, assuming you stick to it, and could potentially motivate the most competitive of us to participate more.

It's rolling, dear. That means it's updated each week until I lose interest. People will rise and fall, drop into obscurity and make dramatic comebacks that HBO will base made-for-TV 'real life' moves off of. There's already a site resource that lists RotW winners; that shit will not fly here. Unless I decide at a later day it will. But I probably won't.

Okay. So I guess you mean to say that how you rank people will be according to your own statistical judgment (since I can't imagine you'll have ties). UNLESS you're allowing for the same person to potentially claim all three spots as the year goes on.

That would make sense for the whole 'rolling' thing, actually. And make things simpler to boot.

XD Oh, never mind. I'll just wait a few weeks to see how this ends up flushing out, and if I see an issue with what I'm failing to explain, I'll bring it up then when there'll actually be examples I can use to make more sense of it.

Is the scoring like QI? Forever a mystery.

See? That's what I was trying to get at. His scoring system is befuddling.

He probably does it something like First place is 3 points, second 2 and third 1, and then adds everyone's totals. That'd kind of make sense, I suppose.

Wow. This is a lot different. I'm surprised Joe's not on there anymore.
