All in favor of adding the following sports to the tentative sports list (based on the commentary from this thread)

Football(Soccer)
Basketball

We know we can deal with them. They are both easy sports to simulate and to RP. Not to mention that they are iconic Olympic Sports. Who hasn't heard of the DREAM TEAM?

All in Favor say "AYE" or something of that ilk. Against, say "Nay."

Post Scriptum (3/30/19): Strictly speaking, this wasn’t a valid Poll since it wasn’t made using proper voting procedures. Instead, it should be thought of as an opinion poll, such as the ones frequently running on top of this thread.

Accepted. Welcome to the committee. For what it is worth, I see no reason why other regions shouldn't be able to participate in the finished product.

Actualy, I am sorry, I lied, as much as it would be epic to have you host it, it wouldn’t be the IDU Olympics anymore. You can feel free to participate in it as far as I am concerned, but you can’t host as you are a diplomat.


The general consensus seems to be that we have Soccer and Basketball on the rosters. That is two events. My computer can not run XCorinate. If anyone else wants to check to see which events are easily sim-able, that would be great!


It has come to my attention that I never actualy applied, oops.

Name: Libertas Omnium Maximus
Is it a puppet: Nope
Delegate Name: Sandra Porter
Host City?: Nope
Host City (If applicable): N/A

EDIT: Do you guys think we should make separate gender events or say that they are all combined.

Good News: I did some fiddling around with Xkorinate on my MAC and kinda got it to work. I am still having trouble actualy simulating events but I at least have it further than was anticipated. This is an appeal to ALL IDU Olympic Committee members interested in hosting: I do believe that, if we can get it working, Xkorinate, will be the best solution as it lets you sim nearly every imaginable sport (including realy mundane sports). It also allows for more modification and RP percs than the conventional league simulator. Please attempt to get the program running on your computer ASAP.

Xkorinate is available for Macs, windows, and Linux and can be downloaded for free here: http://www.thirdgeek.com/ns/xkoranate/

If anyone can get Xkorinate working, it will most likely mean that we can JUMP STRAIGHT TO THE HOST CITY Bid, as we will not need any other scorinators. The Events can be decided by the Host as it will ultimately be him/her who commits a huge amount of time. Speaking of which, I would have to warn that the following requirements will most likely apply to any host city bidder:

1. Be able to use all Scorinators proficiently
2. Be extraordinarily active at ALL times during the duration of the Olympiad
3. You realy should have some RPing experience, preferably sports oriented (I.e. The IDUFC, NS World Cup, NS BoF, etc.)
4. Be willing to do some minimal reasearch into each event that runs, even if it is just Wikipedia-ing the sport. It will make posting results and general host RPing much easier.
5. Don’t even consider CTE’ing for a second!

Thanks for your time, patience, input, and enthusiasm! LONG Live the IDU Olympics!!!

Very interested in participating but not as a host nation or member of the committee. I commend the IDU for planning such an illustrious event.

I officially have Xkorinate artificial score simulator up and running on my Mac. If I can run it on an Apple, pretty much anyone can run it. It can do everything, any sport! It is so good that I am officially starting a vote.

All in favor of using Xkorinate as our exclusive method of scorination say "Aye." All against say "Nay" and preferably state your reasoning why. If this motion passes, it will override the former simulator for basketball and football, leaguesimulator.com, as it is far more precise and allows for RP bonuses.

In the event that we adopt Xkorinate as scorination method for this olympics, we can begin host city biding!

You are certainly in but I can't count your vote as I don't understand what it is that you are voting for. Soccer and Basketball are literally the only two sports that have already been confirmed. We are voting on a scorination method: Yes or No to scorinator, Xkorinate. Kindly amend your vote to reflect what it is you are voting for so I can count it. Thank you.
