the number four will pick the theme + maps

I agree, only there might be one change in it, I don't object to yours; just use whichever one you think is better

Nope, I prefer mine. First of all I think you should at least be in the top 3 to be able to pick a theme. Secondly in that case the number 1 already didn't pick the theme for 2 consecutive weeks. And don't forget: when the number 1 is the same, but the number 2 or number 3 are different it could be that the number 1 doesn't pick a theme for months!

If we use this rule in 6 weeks it will be my turn. I better get thinking!  :-\

With TP's proposal the number 6 would only be able to pick a theme when the top 6 would be exactly the same for 6 consecutive weeks. This chance is so small that the rule doesn't make sense.

I guess that wouldn't make much sense  :D

You mean you suggest CW release dates as a theme? That's indeed possible, so I'll add it to the list.

After his third place in the Fighter Aces tournament (see here), Fisherck has chosen the theme for next weeks tournament: World Records for Running Events.

And could a moderator maybe sticky this overview topic? Thanks in advance! :)

One theme I thought about using was the records for the toplist. There are five records (5 maps), but not all of them can be easily changed into a date. If someone could figure out how to do it, it might make a good theme. :)

How about the date the map was accepted? For Spiff, you could use the date of his first map.

- Hopper: COBOL
- Ritchie: C
- Iverson: APL
- Basic: Kemeny/Kurtz
- Java: Gosling
