I'm for whatever the majority decides, but blatantly cutting and pasting someone else's picks should not be allowed. I recommend a 1-2 event suspension.

It would definitely take longer to score everything, and be a pain in the ass if people needed to change picks (fight cancelled, fighter misses weight/not eligible for 'OTN bonus), but it's do-able.

We could do a trial run for the next 2 events (Maia vs. Askren and Masvidal vs. Diaz) and see how it goes.


Since, as ATJ-Lucko said, there wasn't an established rule already, I'm not really comfortable with handing out any punishment. But if the majority thinks there should be punishment, I'll do what is agreed upon. Regardless, I do think we should have some sort of official rule against it for the future. What that rule is, I have no idea. Does it go by a minimum amount of differences?


And what do we do about shit like this, that happened 2 events ago:

I don't want to add any more work to what you're doing already for something that's just supposed to be for fun. You do enough as it is keeping track of everything.

Well if we do the secret picks where everyone PMs me, I'll still have to post mine. Otherwise I could just say I picked all the winners every time, and there wouldn't be a second person to deny the legitimacy. So you can all still copy mine.

Shit nevermind, I'll just look at the picks everyone sends me and copy the best one.

Let's not make more work for you. We can continue the way we've been going, but one person's picks will be a bit more scrutinized going forward.

I disagree. Lack of contrition should increase the penalty, IMO.
a lot of people do it, i seen people clearly copied a posters picks and just changed some picks. it's why sometimes we have very close results.
but people are acting like its a guarantee you are copying good picks, it can easily backfire and you could be copying bad picks.
