GERIATRIC RULESET
This game is played under a Geriatric ruleset. This means that posting frequency is restricted as follows:

Every player is allowed a maximum of 10 posts in a 24 hour period. In the 24 hour period immediately preceding a deadline, players are allowed a maximum of 15 posts. The definition of a 24 hour period is from midnight eastern to midnight eastern.
Every player starts with a reserve of 20 additional posts. Any posts above the daily limit are subtracted from this reserve.
Players who deplete their reserve will receive a warning. Any further infractions after that will incur mod punishment.
If a player has hit the daily limit and depleted their reserve, they are allowed one naked vote change per real life Day.

General Geriatric Posting Guidelines
Know how to let off the gas. Momentum is important, but this is not a race. This is a game of cooperation - make sure you don't leave anyone behind.
Don't forget you're always speaking to everyone. One-on-one conflicts have their place, but they can quickly take over a thread - and nobody is interested in spectating five pages of others arguing. You don't need to have the last word - if you're stuck making the same arguments to the same people, let the thread breathe and give others a chance to weigh in.
Compose your thoughts. Before submitting a post, reread yourself and cut, edit, and format your message. Make sure your point is clear, and highlight any arguments you make. For example, distinguish separate subjects with expandable spoilers or area tags.
As an overly general rule, any post that is shorter than three sentences is too short, and any post that doesn't fit on a single computer screen is too long.

UPICK
Upon submitting an /in for this game, you need to PM me a list of three artists who have had a Top 10 hit (on the Billboard Hot 100) in the last 20 years (since 1998).
Every player will get a role back with three one-shot abilities derived from one of your submitted artist's hits, at my discretion.
I will attempt to make flavor make sense for abilities, but the setup comes first.
We are allotting 3 full days for setup creation and review after signups fill.
