Question: It’s possible (and even likely) that the combined leaderboard will have the top 3 players from Wed and Sun appear in the Top Two Combined. What then? If the Top 3 and Top 3 and Top 2 are fewer than 8 distinct individuals, do you fill it out to make 8?

donk is extremely arrogant.reminds me of ben askren, gonna take a flying knee to the face.

Thank you for your question. Great observation and you are correct. First of all, there will definitely be 8 Foals to advance to the Golden Donks League. If we don’t have 8 different Foals after taking the Top 3 from two weekly leaderboards and the Top 2 from the composite leaderboard, the league will advance Foals in the following order until 8 Foals have advanced:

  1. The Foal who finished in 3rd place on the composite leaderboard.
  2. The Foal with the most carrots or sugar cubes (after halving) when considering only the Foals who finished in 4th place on each of the three leaderboards.
  3. The Foal with the second most carrots or sugar cubes (after halving) when considering only the two remaining Foals who finished in 4th place on the three leaderboards.
  4. The final Foal who finished in 4th place on the three leaderboards.
  5. Repeat #2 then #3 then #4 above when considering only the Foals who finished in 5th place on each of the three leaderboards.

Thank you again, puggywug, for posting your keen observation.

AND BELOW ARE THE RESULTS OF OUR 100th LEAGUE TOURNAMENT!!!

COMPOSITE LEADERBOARDS AFTER WEEK 2 OF 13 FOR THE 3rd QUARTER


The other day, seven or eight Donk league players (at a table of 9) were in a game and someone commented that “there are so many of the Donk league here that we should just call this the ‘Donk’ table”. A couple of other comments were made and it got me to thinking that it might be nice if we had a way to easily identify other Donk players at a glance and that players outside our league could easily ID us as well. I think this would be a neat way to “BRAND” our involvement, and might help to develop interest in our league, which would help to grow the league as well. I would like to get some feedback from others. Could you let me know what you think? Thanks. ALCHAP65

I personally like the idea, but a few questions come to mind:

  1. Donks and Foals would brand themselves on a voluntary basis, right?
  2. Should the brand appear with our moniker on the virtual RP table screen?
  3. Should we use the profile photo for our branding, because I don’t think we could add it to our user name due to the limitations of RP?

What do our other members think?

I think when RP finishes the change to HTML5 that this could be done rather EZ, Maybe as a simple “D” on out profile pic, but until it’s up & running smoothly the only answer I see is us saying something in chat, or a universal pic that we could all use on our profile as a pic, I could do a snap shot of a tiny pic & add it to my own pic in a certain corner as deemed by Badonk if he approves, then tell everyone how to do it to their own pics… Great idea ALchap65

A profile photo/background would work - one for Donks and 1 for Foals maybe.
Or maybe, we could place the word Donk or Foal over our own Picture.flash2

You could Replace “flash” with “Foal” for example

Note, I also play in a Team League and the _gt after my name represents my team. This wouldn’t work with Badonk’s leagues as currently you can only change your name once and then you are stuck with it, so you have to be very sure before you change it. If a player left the League they couldn’t remove the League moniker after leaving.

PS. i did this before reading Jucee’s post, but pretty much the same idea I think.

PPS, sorry Foals, I can’t make tonight’s game.

I add “Donks” to my notes.

RE: BRANDING
I like the idea of superimposing the word Donk or Foal over the picture. I think that the color should be translucent and should be the players’ choice, as each background picture will have its own unique color.
Also, we could implement this as a beginning branding idea and expand it in the future, as we deem necessary.
One final thought---- if we implement this branding idea, we must be ever conscious of the fact that we are now representing more than just ourselves ---- we are putting on an extra cloak of the Donk League. Therefore, we need to wear this cloak with pride and honor and act accordingly.
By the way, this whole idea of branding was not my doing alone – I simply heard some comments and combined the comments with my thoughts.
