The Comedy Open Mic Newsletter - Introducing The COMedy Rumble Rules FT Listnerds

Embedd.png

Greetings

As many of you may have been aware, we plan to start a month-long comedy tournament, officially named The COMedy Rumble which starts NEXT WEEK.

In this post, I will introduce the categories so everyone can be made aware of them and answer any inquiries any of you might have.

The Categories

There are no first, second, or third place ranking in the COMedy Rumble. There are only winners of different categories. Starting with

The Comedy Title

Throughout the first week of the contest, we will have our regular COMedy contest with one person becoming the winner, of course. Except, there's a twist this time.

Once the winner is picked, they carry the COMedy title and have to defend it next week as it will also be considered for prizes the week after.

The comedy title will only change holders once a funnier post is written.

The Longest Laugh

Whenever the funniest post is written, a timer starts.

The goal of this category is to have the funniest post for the longest time.

Here's a breakdown:

Let's say person A wrote the funniest post on the 5th of July and a funnier post was written by person B on the 25th and remains the funniest until the Rumble is over, the Longest Laugh title would belong to person A as it would have been the funniest for 20 days.

The COMedy Counter

Now, when judging posts, each post is rated out of 10. The winner of this category is whoever has the most points by the end of the Rumble.

Here's a breakdown:

Let's say person A wrote 5 posts throughout the Rumble each receiving 7 out of 10 while person B wrote 4 and received 8 out of 10 for each.

Person A would have a total of 35 points

Person B would have a total of 32 points

Person A would be the winner of the COMedy Counter title.

P.S: The posts will be judged harder as a new post is written by the same author. Some posts could actually be given negative points which will be deducted from the overall total.

The COMedy Average

Unlike the COMedy Counter, this one will go based on the average of total posts rather than the total.

So, if we use the previous breakdown:

Person A would average 7 out of 10

Person B would average 8 out of 10

Person B would be the winner of the COMedy Average title.

The COMedy Nerd

This one will be the highest in value and will be given based on different criteria including post quality and engagement.

Honorable Comedians

We don't want to waste everyone's time, so we will have rewards for honorable mentions.

THE RUMBLE STARTS NEXT WEEK

There will also be more rewards, but you'd have to join Listnerds to earn them. As well as other categories which will be mentioned next Thursday along with the prizes.

As for now, if you have any questions, I will gladly answer them.

Thank You For Reading!

Are we allowed to bring fire? I'm sure there's a code against that. I'll bring a fire extinguisher, just in case things get out of hand.

Awesome contest, and I'm looking forward to welcome some new team members in our Listnerds team. I will help sharing some nice entries when the contest starts to promote it on Listnerds.

Good luck everyone! May the funniest people win!

I've been many types of nerd in my life, but I don't think that a listnerd is one of them. Although, I did once study a book of top ten lists, just for trivia.

I guess I'll have to see what all the fuss is about. After all, you can't be too nerdy!

It's very simple: listnerds have easy access to discover great content on hive shared by other nerds. On top of that, they earn some nerds too :)

Feel free to come and check it out!

What's the basis for funniest post? Number of upvotes? Or Amount of reward? Or is it based on judges scores?🤔

Judges' scores, also comments, if there are any.

I see ... the Ludlow and Trent little ones are all standing on their front porches, and five-year-old Lil' Robert Ludlow of course is saying, "Y'all know we gotta get into this!" while eight-year-old Gracie Trent is just about to answer, sounding just like her grandma, "Ain't it the truth..."

You're in the handful of competition I fear the most. At least if I lose, I'll die laughing!

Just dropping by to sniff out the competition. Honestly, I thought there would be more ferocity in the comments. Do I need to pull my punchlines?

I tip my hat to @amirtheawesome1, who has designed (what I believe to be) the most perfect comedy contest I've ever heard of. I'm super excited about it, and I've been making preparations to really bring my 'A' game.

That means ya'll pranksters better come playin' to win.

Let the trash talking begin.

Five-year-old Lil' Robert Ludlow has balled up his fists and is looking up at you with his big blue eyes flashing and saying, "You want competition? I'll give you competition ... as soon as someone helps me spell it!"

Also, thank you. It's good to know coming up with something different is paying off!
