Greetings, you guys. JustADream here. Taking the wonderful idea from SeaBreeze341 over in the American Idol forums, I decided to start our very own prediction game over here. Suprheath1 has graciously volunteered to be in charge of the scoring portion of the game. Basically, what you do is answer the questions that we post, both for the Performance Night and the Results Night, and you'll get points dependent on how well you do. We'll post the scoreboard weekly, and, at the end of the season, when SYTYCD crowns their newest winner, a winner of So You Think You Can Predict will be crowned as well.

Suprheath1 will post shortly to better explain a few things, but - are you interested? PM either one of us if you have questions, or post them here. Hopefully all the bugs will be worked out this first week. :)

This sounds like fun! Is it just going to be predicting who gets the boot, or bottom three or what?

The Rules
  • Scores will be cumulative from week to week, so you will want to try to participate every week.
  • Performance Round Questions will be posted on Thursdays after the results show, and Predictions will be due by TUESDAY @ 7:00 PM ET (until further notice)
  • Results Round Questions will be posted on Wednesdays after the performance show and Predictions will be due by Thursday @ 9:00 PM ET (until further notice)
  • Some questions will allow more than one prediction, others will ask for the exact answer only. Those differences should be clear in the question form.
  • Scores for each week as well as the running totals will be posted by the end of the weekend at the latest.
  • We are trying to run this game so that those who prefer to remain "unspoiled" may do so. Therefore, please avoid referring to any spoilers you may have (for example: "a friend of a friend told me that Chelsie H. has jumpstyle this week.")
  • If you join the game late, you will be given the lowest cumulative score so far to add on to your first week's score.
  • Contestants' dance styles, if needed, will be based upon what I got off the Fox site, and are listed at the bottom of these rules.
  • If you edit your post, please do us a favor and either make note of what you edited, or italicize it. If your post is edited AFTER the deadline, unfortunately your scores will not count. If there is an issue, please PM me.
  • Scoring change: By popular demand, we’ll be doing scoring on a progressive scale based on how many guesses you make. For any questions that allow for more than one guess, you may make your choice of on, two, or three guesses. If you make three guesses and get the correct answer, you'll get 75 points. If you make two guesses and get the correct answer, you'll get 100 points. If you make just one guess and get it right, you’ll get 150 points. There's an incentive to make fewer guesses, but you have to be really sure of your answer. If you aren't sure, make three guesses and go for less points!

    Any question that allows only one guess is worth 100 points.
  • Here's what we'll do as far as the "dancing in their style" question. We'll start by putting dance styles under one of five umbrellas:

    Hip Hop: Hip Hop, Krump, Popping, House, Breaking
    Contemporary/Jazz: Contemporary, Lyrical, Pop, Jazz, "Pop Jazz," Broadway, Pas de deux
    Standard Ballroom: Waltz, Smooth Waltz, Viennese Waltz, Foxtrot, Quickstep, Tango
    Latin Ballroom: Rumba, Cuban Rumba, Salsa, Jive, Samba, Cha Cha, Mambo, Paso Doble, Argentine Tango, Latin Jazz (?)
    "Club Dances"/Other: Disco, Hustle, Lindy Hop, West Coast Swing, Bollywood [I think the idea behind this category is that they require a specific training that no other umbrella covers...in other words, it's not fair to assume that someone with standard ballroom training should easily be able to do lindy hop, just because it's a partner dance]

    We'll put the dancers under the same umbrellas as applicable. If they fit under more than one, based on the Fox website, they'll be under any applicable umbrella:
    Hip Hop: Tony, Phillip
    Contemporary/Jazz: Randi, Karla, Caitlin, Jeanine, Kayla, Paris, Ashley, Kupono, Brandon, Jason, Vitolio, Evan, Ade
    Standard Ballroom: none
    Latin Ballroom: Asuka, Janette, Max, Jonathan
    "Club Dances"/Other: Melissa (ballet)

    If a dancer under a certain umbrella dances ANY style under their umbrella, they will have "danced in their style." HOPEFULLY no questions asked!

Heh. I'm just grandstanding anyway. My emmy and oscar pool experience is exactly 1 emmy pool and 1 oscar pool.

I thought of a question though. What happens if people decide to join later since it's a season long thing. Do they get the lowest point total from the previous weeks or something. I just want people who decide to play later to be able to do so.

Here's how we think it will go. We want to provide some kind of amnesty for this week, since it's so last minute, and some people may want to check out how the game works. So, if you miss this week's game (which we discourage because of the awesome bonus points available), and you want to jump in next week, we'll double whatever score you get next week to account for Week One. I also think we'll provide some kind of bonus opportunity for those people who follow that route. Does that sound fair? Our thinking is that by next week's round, most people who are board regulars will be here, see the game, and decide if they want to play!

Keep joining in folks! I know we're a competitive bunch!

This looks fun! I'm sure it'll feel more "natural" as we go along.

okay,alvin etler, so you're the menace? Maybe we should just copy all your answers! Hee.

If you go to the speculation thread, see below, I've directed to pages -- just for this week -- you'll see three pages' worth of possible partnerships. (Because this game needs to move quickly, it might help us all to see thoughts of others about potential pairings. They're pretty good, imo.)

Here's a pairing list of dancers by style from lmg2004.
Here's another similar list taking race into account, from creysd. Finally, on page 45 of the Speculation thread, there are two more lists of possible pairings.

Week 1-Top 20 Performance Round

Contestants (75 points each)
1. Who performs first? Gev, Katee, Mark, Jessica, Chris, Thayne
2. Who performs last? Twitch, Kherington, William, Joshua, Comfort, Chelsie H (Latin)
3. When do Chelsea T. and her partner perform? 2nd, 3rd, 9th
4. When do Matt and his partner perform? 2nd, 5th, 9th
5. What style does Courtney G. perform? Tango, Hiphop, Broadway

Dance (75 points each)
1. Who is the hip-hop choreographer? Tabitha & Napoleon
2. How many “ballroom” (latin included) routines are there? FIVE
3. How many routines will be labeled as “contemporary”? ONE
4. How many contestants (1-20) will perform in their style? 1-3

Host & Judges (75 points each)
1. Who is the third judge? Mia, Dan
2. Will Mary say “Hot Tamale Train” more or less than two times? Fewer (Lawd knows what else she'll come up with, but . .)
3. As Cat takes us into commercial breaks, how many couples will be shown on the side balcony prior to their performance? 1-3.
4. How many times will Sabra's name be mentioned by Cat and the judges? 2-4.

Bonus (100 points each)
1. Who is the first female contestant to be named on the Hot Tamale Train? None.
2. Will more male or female past contestants be shown in the audience? Female.
3. Who will the first poster shown on screen be in support of? Twitch, Comfort, Gev, Scarington [or: "more than one"]

Question: if there's an option to guess more than one (e.g. hip hop choreographer this week), which gets you more points: 1) one guess that's dead on, or 2) two or three guesses, only one of which is correct?

p.s. for the first couple weeks of this game, I think it might be worth, if it's possible, a short list of instructions at the top of the page? Or did people on the Idol game just go back to page 1 (in this instance), to refresh on rules and to copy the questions?

I just saw it on the other page.
Should we indicate to you and others, somehow, that because you caught an error, we've edited our answers? For example, should I have written, say, in italics, for Courtney G, where I originally picked one and should have picked three:

Tango, Hiphop, Broadway [last two added by edit]

It would be GREAT if you could italicize or add in a note when you edit. It shouldn't be a huge deal, since I can see when you edit it. Obviously if it's after the deadline, I have to say your post won't count.

So, if you miss this week's game (which we discourage because of the awesome bonus points available), and you want to jump in next week, we'll double whatever score you get next week to account for Week One. I also think we'll provide some kind of bonus opportunity for those people who follow that route. Does that sound fair?


Kind of, but I am a bit concerned that next week might not be as difficult as this week - we'll have our bearings, know who's paired with whom, have seen who already got which styles etc. the first week - so the folks who join late would actually have an unfair advantage over the original players if you doubled their week two score (I am "predicting" right now that just about everyone is going to do better week two than week one).

I like the idea already suggested that anyone who joins late can start off at whatever the current lowest score is. I think any method other than this makes it more advantageous to start later than to play from the beginning.

OK, sorry for the ongoing posts answering questions, but I'm glad we're getting problems worked out now rather than later.

It does make more sense that as the weeks go on, people SHOULD do better, so let's go with the lowest score idea- that is, if you join the game late, you start off with the current lowest score total so far. I'm not sure how some of the bonus things will pan out in that case, but that just gives you all incentive to join now!!
