Been gone so long it feels like I'm new. Every time I try to be more present some new obstacle comes up. We'll see how this attempt goes.

You should be able to post now. I've just validated you.

Do we really need a new thread for this every year?

Seems a bit senseless to me.

Morning

Regular Dead Pool type (but never Deathlister) returning to action after a couple of years off due to being "too fahucking busy". Thought I should come to the Mecca of Morbidity that is Deathlist and contribute on a semi-regular basis.

Hallo. :skill2:

Hi Bibliogryphon here,

I have been visiting as a guest for several years and did occasionally post as a Guest but managed to persuede my IT manager at work that the site should not be categorised as offensive material and thereby blocked. So I have registered. Unfortunately it was too late to join the competitions for 2012 but I am looking forward to 2013.

I run a Deadpool for some colleagues and found that this is THE best source of data and ideas so keep up the good work.

Welcome aboard Bibliogryphon. I too, used to run a dead pool at work, but after 8 years (yes, EIGHT YEARS) the bstards decided it was offensive and demanded I stop. Hope your managers aren't as bad as mine.

We have been running for 5 years and now have thirty players. As we have less than 200 people in the organisation that is a pretty good proportion and there are significant number of others who only didn't play cause they were too lazy to fill in the form.

Hey guys, I've just been lurking on this site for a long time and finally decided to join. Thanks for validating me! I'm also wondering if someone can help me figure out linking things. I've noticed that most forms will have a line of text, say for example "Zsa Zsa admitted to hospital" and will have an external link to the article embedded into that line of text. Just wondering how you do this. Thanks in advance!

1) Type the text you want to turn into a link.
2) Highlight the area.
3) Click the link button. It's underneath the Font Size adjuster.
4) Paste the link you want into the box that pops up.
