1st Place = 10 pts
2nd Place = 7 pts
3rd Place = 5 pts
4th or 5th Place = 3 pts
6th Place on down or Special Mentions = 1 pt
Tie-breaks are figured on best top scores. A first place finisher beats someone whose highest finish was second place and so-on. If they are still tied, we move on to second best finishes, third best finishes and so-forth. (NOTE: Ties are only broken if it is possible to do so using top five finishes, otherwise the tie is allowed to stand.)
Keep in mind, the way scores are figured, getting in the top 3 can move you up the list very fast, especially first place finishes! So, wherever you may rank now, even if you haven't yet scored, you are never very far from the upper echelon - so keep on playing!
First, we once again present a very special bonus award to our King of the Photoshops...
Chris from Lucky Dawg News
Still undisputed! 6 of Chris' photoshops have appeared on our winners pages, with links provided to 3 more. Way to go, Chris! Keep up the great work!
Now, here are the updated standings for the Caption Players Hall of Glory (CAP-HOG for short). Point totals are in the first set of parentheses. Number of Top 5 finishes are in the second set of parentheses. Those with first place finishes are indicated by a "Winner" tag. Number in brackets indicates where the player ranked the last time the scores were computed. [Those wishing to compare the standings to the last batch (thru Edition #15), can find it HERE.]
Still the King of the Hill, but is he feeling the heat?
Boy, he sure got up here fast, didn't he? Of course, one could say he has an unfair advantage, as his own blog is nothing BUT funny photo captions, but the competition is open to everyone! Note to the other regulars, one of his keys to success is multiple submissions every week - it gives him more chances to crack the list, scoring with 16 captions in just 7 weeks. (HINT! HINT!)
Known for his high quality caption play throughout the blogosphere, Lair is very unlikely to stay this far down for very long! One win could potentially propel him into the top ten at this point!
Uh-oh! Here's another highly regarded caption player who just started playing here - Best keep an eye on him, folks!
The following players all have 1 point each and are tied for 49th Place overall. So, who among them is ready to bust out? Only time will tell...
Darrell from The Southern Conservative
Ferdinand T. Cat from The Conservative Cat
John the Trog
Pam from Blogmeister USA and Lifelike Pundits
To everyone on this list, regardless of where you stand, congratulations - you deserve to take a bow!
Remember, you can't win if you don't play! There are new chances to score every week, so keep up the great caption work, everybody!
