Quoriv and Kharventhin are prepared to host the world at the Second Summer Esferiad—I would wish them luck, but I know they won't need it.

Signup/OOC Thread (you are here) | Roleplay/IC Thread | Results Thread | Signup CreatorHost Bid


Hello and welcome to the signup/OOC thread for the Second Summer Esferiad!! (yes we decided to rename it!) UA and Fujai will each be scorinating half of the days. An RP thread will be posted nearer to the beginning of the games with more information on the IC host cities, Quoriv and Kharventhin of Giovanniland and Blue Bubble.

Signups will be open for 2 weeks until Saturday October 23
The Games will run over 15 days from the 24th of October to the 7th of November

Signup instructions can be found below—if you have any issues signing up or have other questions, please ask here and UA or Fujai will help out!

These Games are open only to nations on the RP Map. If you are not on the map and would like to participate, follow the instructions here and you may sign up once your map request has been fully processed.

(yes we decided to rename the olympics lol—we're retconning it IC so the Saint-Josalyn event was the I Summer Esferiad)

Signing Up

You may submit a maximum of 150 entries spread over the events. To submit your signup, you may either use the provided spreadsheet exclusively, or download the it for use in the text or spreadsheet editor of your choice and post your signup in this thread.

Please use the format shown in the instructions below exactly when submitting your signup, as it makes our jobs a lot easier. You may be asked to fix formatting errors before your signup is accepted.

Rules, Guidelines, and Notes

  • Entry Limit
    • You are limited to 150 total entries
    • You do not have to enter every event, nor do you have to use all 150 entries—in fact, we recommend you tailor how many entries and what events you enter to what would make sense for your nation
    • You may also enter athletes into multiple events (e.g. 200 m Freestyle, 1500 m Freestyle, and 200 m Backstroke), but this still counts as multiple entries toward the 150 entry limit
    • The signup sheet automatically tracks your number of entries (specifically it counts the number of non-empty cells in the skill column)
  • Skill Modifiers
    • New to these games! Skill modifiers must be whole numbers (0, 1 , 2, etc) from 0 to 100.
    • You may choose not to assign skill modifiers to your athletes—in this case, they will all be assigned a skill of 50.
  • Skill Average
    • The average skill of all your entries may not exceed 50, but it can be lower!
    • The signup sheet automatically tracks your skill average
  • Min-Max Avoidance Bonus (MMAB)
    • A bonus based on the standard deviation of your entries' skill will be used, weighted at 20% of the total RP bonus for any given day. You can exceed the standard deviations listed, but your MMAB will lessen the further you go outside the limits and your delegation may suffer because of it.
      • 1-10 entries: Full MMAB for any standard deviation
      • 11-35 entries: Full MMAB for standard deviation of 35 or less
      • 36-75 entries: Full MMAB for standard deviation of 30 or less
      • 76+ entries: Full MMAB for standard deviation of 25 or less
    • NOTE: We aren't able to easily test how well this will work, so please bear with us
    • The signup sheet automatically tracks your standard deviation
  • Signup Changes
    • Changes to signups will be accepted until signups close, but they must be made as a new reply to this thread—you don't have to repost your entire signup. If you don't make a new post, we probably won't see your changes.
  • Signup Help
    • If you have any questions regarding signups or need assistance, you may ask in this thread or in the #sports channel in the RP Discord
  • Do not copy an old signup
    • Events have been added, some have changed names, and some have different entry limits. You may, however reuse as many or as few of your athletes from the last Games.
  • Disclaimer
    • If you choose to download the Signup Creator Tool to create your signup elsewhere, we cannot guarantee the formulas used to automatically calculate your number of entries, average skill, and standard deviation will function properly.
  • Football refers to association football, not gridiron football.

Signup Instructions

  1. Create a duplicate of the Master Signup sheet (right click→"duplicate") and retitle the sheet with the name of your nation/delegation.
    1. Skip this step if you are downloading the spreadsheet to create your signup elsewhere.
  2. Enter your nation's trigram in the trigram space (this should be 3 letters and can be found on the main RP Spreadsheet). Do Not edit anything else in the header.
  3. Enter your athletes' names in the left hand column under the event they will be participating in. Please use the correct formatting as shown in the example in Step 5. The number next to the event name refers to the maximum number entries you are allowed to submit for that event—it also gives direction for what kind of entry to submit.
  4. Enter a Skill Modifier for your athlete/team. This is a number between 0 and 100, with 0 representing an athlete just making the qualification standard (i.e. still decent compared to the average person), and 100 representing the world's best.
  5. Follow the following format exactly, as it makes our jobs much easier. You may be asked to fix formatting errors before your signup is accepted.
    1. For events with only a number next to the event name — e.g. (2) — it is an individual event and you must give the name of each participating individual on a separate line (you may enter fewer than the maximum number).
    2. For team events with a specific team size indicated — e.g. (1 team of 2) — you must give the name of each team member on a single line, separated by slashes with no space between the slash and the names.
    3. For team events that say only (1 team), use the name of your nation/delegation rather than the names of any team members. You may post team rosters for these events in the RP thread once it is created closer to the start of the Games.
    4. Example:
      Event/Athlete Skill (0-100)
      Volleyball  
      Beach  
      Team (1 team of 2)  
      Ragnhild Grindheim/Askil Bjordal 75
      Indoor  
      Team (1 team)  
      Fujai 27
      Wrestling  
      Freestyle (3)  
      Tilje Stensrud 53
      Matheo Grønnlig 48
    5. There are several events in the events list that are not in the signup creator—have no fear, as your athletes will be automatically entered into these events without counting against your entry limit
  6. Ensure that you are within the rules outlined above for max entries, average skill, and skill standard deviation as you create your signup
  7. Do not add any rows or columns to your signup, and do not delete any rows or columns
  8. After your signup is complete, you must make a post in this thread stating your intent to sign up
    1. If you chose to use the provided Signup Creator Tool alone, you may merely reply with your intent to sign up using the roster you have saved in that spreadsheet. Your signup will then be locked by the OOC hosts. You may still make changes until signups close, but they must be made by making a new reply in this thread
    2. If you chose to download the signup for use elsewhere, you must paste a copy of it into this thread as plain text, and you must put semicolons between the athletes and their skill modifiers. You must also include your Nation name, Trigram, Number of Entries, Average Skill, and Standard Deviation
  9. Have fun, and enjoy the Esferiad!!

Fuentana will send a delegation and has completed the duplication in the spreadsheet.

I don't yet have a good feel for the modifier; I wanted to be fair while also indicating the things I'm most interested in RPing in by making my characters competitive. Happy to adjust as needed.

@Fujai Fixed the Beach Volleyball team. There was apparently also a miscalculation on my part so I have actually 142 entries instead of 150 (coincidentally 100 more than my 42 entries last year). I don't plan on entering any more athletes or editing anything, so this is my finished signup.

@Arifiyyah You had removed the formulas in the header of your signup that automatically calculated # of entries, average, and standard deviation, so some of your numbers are off and your average came out too high. You can make a new reply letting us know it's fixed and we'll approve your signup then :)

Confirmed signups

  • @Fujai: 125 entries, 50.0 average, 20.2 stdev, 100% MMAB
  • @Arifiyyah: 49 entries, 49.2 average, 16.4 stdev, 100% MMAB

Pending signups

  • @Larxia - two small edits needed: your average is just above 50 yet, so you'll need to bring down one or two skills a couple points to bring it down. Also, for the 4x200 m Medley Relay Swim, Coxless Fours, Multihull Sailing, you have to list the players on the team on a single line with slashes between the names rather than the nation name

The Federal Republic of Santos-Dominius will send a delegation to compete fairly in the 2nd Summer Esferiad.

We have submitted a list of participating Santo-Dominian athletes (hopefully correctly).

Our delegation, a numerically generous one in terms of our relatively small population, will do its very best to make these games enjoyable and entertaining. Our team's special expertise in aquatics will hopefully give us the edge in those events.
