  • March into the sea We fed that blob a lot of RHR didn't we Summeroff? *evil grin*--AU10Pantomime Mistress of Pain┌∩┐()┌∩┐ 03:36, 29 August 2010 (BST)
    Aye Pantomime, the Blob has eaten well since he and his minions of the deep came to Malton. Through the tireless efforts of his Priests and Missionaries, he's sampled the best and worst this city has to offer. Although he had more of a preference for CORAM at the time, he did sample a few RHR morsels in those early days. He found them a bit mealy but edible. --Dr summeroff 15:27, 1 September 2010 (BST)

First

This has always been an amusing event to watch in the past. Hope it stays that way. Couldn't quite make up what MX means though? --Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 00:26, 13 August 2010 (BST)

Try Roman numerals. -- Spiderzed 00:27, 13 August 2010 (BST)
Yep, 2010. We're coming to get you, Barbara 00:28, 13 August 2010 (BST)
Would be MMX, actually. :-P -- Spiderzed 00:36, 13 August 2010 (BST)
I drink. Gimme a bit and I'll get it fixed. We're coming to get you, Barbara 00:38, 13 August 2010 (BST)
Actually fuck it. consider it M for Murder and X for 10 and THAT IS HOW I PLANNED IT ALL ALONG. We're coming to get you, Barbara 00:39, 13 August 2010 (BST)
Shit! He's entering a psychotic rage! *Runs* --Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 00:43, 13 August 2010 (BST)

Voting

Seems like I misunderstood. I assumed that nomination is up until 16th, and then solely voting will take place. Or is both rolled into one? -- Spiderzed 00:41, 13 August 2010 (BST)

Public vote starts on the 16th, runs for two weeks. Then it's closed, top three results for each award are listed as the nominees and the panel then vote on those in private (I should probably set up an IRC for that), before the winners are announced on the 6th. We're coming to get you, Barbara 00:43, 13 August 2010 (BST)
The sneetches on beaches had stars upon thars? We're coming to get you, Barbara 15:01, 13 August 2010 (BST)

Broadcasting

Should CORAM roll out the red carpet again for a Malton Murder MMX live broadcast via EBS? Our Calendar seems to be open that day and you'd be most welcome. Just beware the zerg when you come. --Vapor 02:59, 16 August 2010 (BST)

Would be much obliged. I should be able to host it as before, might sort out a co-host again. We're coming to get you, Barbara 03:08, 16 August 2010 (BST)
We've just steam-cleaned all the blood and semen from our red carpet. However, Coram is currently under constant heavy attack, let's hope we're free from ruin on 6th September. Of course, the more attendees who are available to arrive earlier than the 6th the more likely the venue will be intact on the night. --    : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : 13:57, 16 August 2010 (BST)
There is a horde of thirty-four other zombies here. I hope you guys have a Plan B. -- Spiderzed 22:05, 3 September 2010 (BST)
:( We're coming to get you, Barbara 22:22, 3 September 2010 (BST)
If only there was an alternative place you could make public the results. Perhaps somewhere with an urban dead theme? Hmmm. I know, the Forts Storeroom Frequency! --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 22:30, 3 September 2010 (BST)
Might I suggest mass revive RTS?. Coram and some of the PKer's can come by, mass revive the zombies/zergs. Repair, pop in a genny and fuel and there should be AP for whoever to make their speech. We can then enjoy shooting all those lovely folks who stand up :D. Just need to organize before the 6th -- Emot-argh.gif 22:57, 3 September 2010 (BST)
Most of CORAM died in the assault, but we're gradually reorganizing. If Mis wants to try to go forward with the EBS broadcast, we can try to organize something. Wonder what Big Prick is up to this week? ~Vsig.png 04:10, 4 September 2010 (BST)

Hopefully you'll broadcast from CORAM's ruin. Wonder if powered EBS works during ruin??? Plus, a ruined building fulla blood and gore is surely the ideal location for a Murder Awards ceremony. Guess we can shuffle in to form a zed audience if the glittering serum remains scarce. --    : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : 22:08, 5 September 2010 (BST)

All we need is a little energon and a luck of luck a needle or two and a generator. We're coming to get you, Barbara 22:11, 5 September 2010 (BST)

What time would the results be announced? Chief Seagull squawkFree running! 10:42, 6 September 2010 (BST)

Approximtely 9pm BST. I'm still waiting on one of the judges but at present I don't actually think there's anything that would change based on his votes so I should be able to go ahead if I have to. Check the wiki if the broadcast can't go ahead. We're coming to get you, Barbara 14:20, 6 September 2010 (BST)
My alts are now listening to both 25.92 (EBS) and 27.50 (CORAM's substitution frequency). That should cover my base, I hope. -- Spiderzed 19:10, 6 September 2010 (BST)

Too wide

Goes off page on 1024x. You're using a fixed size table, you bastard. I'll fix your little red dinghy! ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 02:06, 17 August 2010 (BST)

And fix'd. Well, should be. Lemme know if there are any hassles. ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 02:11, 17 August 2010 (BST)
Partially undone, you messed up the gold bar titles. If you can find a way to keep them the full width and not just the width of the text they contain, feel free. Also vote. We're coming to get you, Barbara 02:20, 17 August 2010 (BST)
width:100%. Fix'd. (Also, did s'more stuff, discussed on IRC.) ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 02:38, 17 August 2010 (BST)

Meatpuppeting? I suppose that just because we happen to feel that we're the best new group, and are actually taking the time to come out and vote towards it, that means we don't deserve consideration... Is that the case here? It's not as though there's a campaigning page, and it's pretty hard to get a name out there unless you're a wiki/forum rat. That being said, I see no rule stating that members of a group may not vote for themselves. If we're not allowed to voice our opinions in favor of ourselves, truly believing that we're the best new group to form this year, then this whole event in nothing more than the circle-jerking of an elitist clique that wants to put a fancy tag on the wiki pages of some of their friends. I realize that responding like this is likely to anger a portion of the people who read it, but I'm insulted, and I'm going to stick up for myself, and my teammates. --Hiro Kazama 20:53, 17 August 2010 (BST)
I'm just hoping they don't just pick you because you have the most. I'm also not accusing you of trying to game the system, I just don't want the judges to misconstrue this as genuine community support.--User:Yonnua Koponen/signature2 20:57, 17 August 2010 (BST)
Could you define "community" for me? I was pretty sure that individuals make up a community. Does it have to be people that don't ever play with us for the vote to count? What's the rules you think we should play by? Or should only mod votes count? What do we have to do for our voices to count? Or do you just not like the fact that we're speaking for ourselves?--Hiro Kazama 21:45, 17 August 2010 (BST)
I'm going to let both of you know that you're arguing needlessly, no matter how many people do or do not agree with the number of people voting X, Y or Z, it's ultimately up to a neutral panel to decide in the end anyway. We're coming to get you, Barbara 21:47, 17 August 2010 (BST)
Sorry, think you're misunderstanding me. :P I'm not saying your voices shouldn't count, but you can obviouly see that it's different if 8 unaffiliated people back a group to if 8 group members back it? I was just making sure the judges knew that you were the same group.--User:Yonnua Koponen/signature2 21:48, 17 August 2010 (BST)
Well, calling it "meatpuppeting" insinuates some form of cheating or underhandedness. The reason we had several votes in a line like that is that I brought the awards up to my team and said I nominated us. Fair to say, they agreed with the sentiment.--Hiro Kazama 21:55, 17 August 2010 (BST)
That's actually the definition of meatpuppeting. :P One person telling others to vote who otherwise would be unlikely to. There's nothing wrong with it, I just felt it should be pointed out. :P -User:Yonnua Koponen/signature2 21:57, 17 August 2010 (BST)
That's a weird dictionary you've got. I've always understood meatpuppeting to be synonomous with sockpuppeting, which is to make multiple accounts with which to vote. I think our in game actions should speak more for us, anyway, but then who's going to find out who we are if we don't speak up somehow? We can't just slap a link to ourselves on the front page of the wiki.--Hiro Kazama 22:36, 17 August 2010 (BST)
You're both annoying me, I've already made this situation crystal clear. As page owner I'll remove this argument if it continues. We're coming to get you, Barbara 22:37, 17 August 2010 (BST)
I'm trying to build bridges! :'( --User:Yonnua Koponen/signature2 22:52, 17 August 2010 (BST)
Also meatpuppet =/= sockpuppet. We're coming to get you, Barbara 22:37, 17 August 2010 (BST)
/signed -- 17:15, 20 August 2010 (BST)

So....

I was under the impression the top 3 voted nominees were then ordered by the panel? Is that not the case? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 22:44, 17 August 2010 (BST)

Well a winner is picked from them, but there's no 1st, 2nd, 3rd ordering, why? We're coming to get you, Barbara 22:45, 17 August 2010 (BST)
Thats not exactly what the front page says. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 22:46, 17 August 2010 (BST)
Or perhaps it is. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 22:47, 17 August 2010 (BST)
You may have lost me. We're coming to get you, Barbara 22:48, 17 August 2010 (BST)

Cause people can't use the "comments" heading and also don't know who they're talking to Grr! Argh! *shaking fist*

  • RDD vs Browncoats. It caused blane to hang it up and quit UD. -- Emot-argh.gif 04:33, 18 August 2010 (BST)
    Actually, its more because Blane got bored of UD since its dying and started playing eRepublik, but keep believing your mediocre event was relevant.--/~Rakuen~\Talk Domo.gif I Still Love Grim 23:39, 20 August 2010 (BST)
    It's not 'his'... We're coming to get you, Barbara 23:42, 20 August 2010 (BST)
    Thanks for the nitpicking--/~Rakuen~\Talk Domo.gif I Still Love Grim 00:52, 27 August 2010 (BST)

Best Newcomer eligibility

Malton Murder Awards MMX: Best Newcomer:
This award will go to the player who has made the biggest impact since starting the game, provided the joined within the past 12 months.

Natasha Fatale joined UD in March 2009. My candidate even joined in '07 (thought he was younger, looking how Glitch only recently entered the metagame). The only two eligible nominated so far are Umpa Lumpa and myself, and that even barely (having both joined on August 16th or 22th, respectively). So, whatcha gonna do? Amend the rules, or enforce them strictly? -- Spiderzed 12:46, 21 August 2010 (BST)

Hmm. Last year it was 18 months, but then again that was to account for last year's awards being late. I guess I could extend it out to 18 months again to keep it even, if everyone is okay with that. We're coming to get you, Barbara 18:50, 21 August 2010 (BST)
So everyone since Feb '09 would be eligible? (Which would include Natasha Fatale.) Let's see what her fan club has to say about that. -- Spiderzed 13:50, 22 August 2010 (BST)
Honestly, as much as I would like to say "yes" since I did vote for her, I really hate the idea of changing the rules after the fact for anything that's in progress. Especially so with contests and the like, since it just reeks of unfairness and bias, regardless of any accusations that may arise later. That said, if the panel wants to create a one-off award for Natasha to recognize her achievement, I don't think many would object (I certainly wouldn't). The fact that my PKer was started in the last year only factored into my decision a bit did not factor into my decision. >_> Aichon 19:24, 22 August 2010 (BST)
I see points for and against. I think it's sort of sad that someone in a similar position in Natasha could have started say a month before the deadline and therefore only have been at, say, level 5 when last years awards were on, but then become ineligible even though they were only PKing after the awards, when they were capable level-wise, etc. so my main gripe is with the actual wording of the rule compared to its purpose. It really depends. In terms of sheer proness, Natasha should smash this award right up, even though I didn't vote for her, but I understand that she shouldn't qualify due to the letter of the law. In terms of the spirit of the law, she should be let in IMO, but it's up to the organisers as to whether she could. -- 01:40, 23 August 2010 (BST)

Alright, it are now just 3 days left before all voting ends. As this affects a lot of votes currently, any decisions on this point by you and/or the judge panel, Mis? -- Spiderzed 21:01, 26 August 2010 (BST)

I'm thinking that each voter who put forward a vote for Natasha can reconsider if they wish to cast their vote for her for Best Individual. If the voters decide that they really want to keep their votes lodged for best newcomer, then, well, it's hardly a Malties without something going wrong, is it? We're coming to get you, Barbara 21:38, 26 August 2010 (BST)

Awards MIA

I'm saddened some of the more entertaining awards from last time are missing. Who can sleep at night knowing a "Best Dressed" Malty is not on the shelf of Malton's best dressed Man/Woman? Or the "best target"? Does Dhave Grohl not deserve a shelf full of these prestigious awards? What of 'Services to the Industry' so that DT can turn it down again? Best Bounty Hunter? Surely that has to mean more to Pker's than something called 'Bahz Gang'. These and other awards have been bumped off the docket to make room for...Bahz Mamanz? Say it isn't so...Say it isn't so. --Hibernaculum 20:12, 22 August 2010 (BST)

Prizes

Going to post them on talk pages? I'm assuming winner and shortlisted people? --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 21:24, 6 September 2010 (BST)

The fuck? How could AHMH3 possibly be tied? It shitted on every other contestant in numbers and also awesomeness (imo)... -- LEMON #1 05:33, 7 September 2010 (BST)

Well, that's assuming AHMH3 is even one of the moments that is tied to win :S -- LEMON #1 05:36, 7 September 2010 (BST)
It is. We're coming to get you, Barbara 12:41, 7 September 2010 (BST)
I don't think numbers matter much, just look at "Most Inept". To my surprise Poodle got the honors, even though only I and some other guy voted for him, the rest all voted Cornholioo. Guess giving "Most Inept" to a zerging neo-nazi was too easy, like not worth him, that was at least my reasoning for voting for Poodle.--Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 06:20, 7 September 2010 (BST)
Let's face it, the judges made pretty arbitrary decisions on a couple of awards.--User:Yonnua Koponen/signature2 07:40, 7 September 2010 (BST)
I agree. They should have been serving as a counter-measure to meat-puppets, but instead chose based on their own biases. We would have gotten more agreeable results if we just went by the vote. --VVV RGPBMBCAWS 07:53, 7 September 2010 (BST)
Wow. I agree, I didn't realise they would do anything more than act as a safeguard for meatpuppeting. Gay. -- LEMON #1 09:13, 7 September 2010 (BST)
Sigh. What's wrong this time? We're coming to get you, Barbara 12:56, 7 September 2010 (BST)'s
IT'S FIXED! i KNEW IT! ;P ----sexualharrisonStarofdavid2.png ¯\(Boobs.gif)/¯ 13:13, 7 September 2010 (BST)
I reiterate my question. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 13:42, 7 September 2010 (BST)
As with past events, I'll leave it up to the individual winners to decide if they want to post the template, but I might notify everyone in a day or two in case they've missed it. We're coming to get you, Barbara 13:49, 7 September 2010 (BST)
Can I has sawn-off award? Or would the fifth judge, should he pop up, still be allowed to break the tie between me and Natasha? -- Spiderzed 18:49, 7 September 2010 (BST)
Yep, there's still a chance for you to win outright, I'm still trying to track down the last ballot to break a 2-2 tie between you two (as well as the other tied result). We're coming to get you, Barbara 19:05, 7 September 2010 (BST)
