    - At most two from the top ten of this year's Deathlist.net (see below)
    - People we're likely to have heard of, please. The governing principle is that their death could conceivably make a slot on the front page of the BBC News website

    I’m slowly compiling a list. Spent a lot of 2017 making mental notes to put people on for 2018, and I’ve forgotten them all now.

    We've got 8/25 the same, that's not too bad. There's only a finite amount of coffin dodgers. My record score is 8, I'd quite like to beat that this time.

    I was mildly expecting Mugatu to have that 'Home and Away' actress who has just had her life support machine turned off in his list.

    I assume she's disallowed. Asking for a friend.

    If you get her in before she carks it, she's fair game.

    I would judge you. Taking advantage of developments after others had posted is not within the spirit of the game IMO.

    That said, if there hadn’t been developments after 31 Dec, I would have been okay with her under this new terminal illness anything goes regime.

    I do actually agree with you about this, so I've not put her in. I reserve the right to edit if any other bastard tries to include her, though.

    The Home and Away actress is now DEAD, so you can't use her.
