Multiple accounts are forbidden and may result in all accounts being banned. Users who are sharing computers with relatives
can have an account per family member but only one account will be eligible for prizes. You must contact us and let us know about this
beforehand and let us know which account will be eligible. If there is suspicion that you are one person running multiple accounts, proof may
be asked for. This rule is in place to prevent players attempting to play using multiple accounts for a higher chance of winning any prizes or boosting
the score of a league. It is not meant to prevent families from playing together, but as it is difficult for us to discern between players sharing IP
addresses or other similar data and login patterns, we ask that you contact us beforehand please.
Automatic Random PPV Picks: How do I enable this?
This feature will prevent you from ever missing a PPV for the current season. It can be enabled in the SETTINGS page.
(the link to this page is in the top-right alongside your Inbox, when you are logged in to the site) Keep in mind you will need
to reset this option when a new season begins.
General Ranking Question: My league rank doesn't seem to be right? What's up?
When users are ranked, along with your ranking, your league AT THE TIME of the ranking is stored as well.
If your rank seems a few places off, it's probably because some people have left your league. And if you just
joined a new league, you won't be ranked within that league until the next time rankings are calculated. This is
because the rankings you see across the site, while for the current season, are not calculated in real-time - the site
would be slower than it already is if that happened.
Prediction Games: I didn't get to enter my predictions but want to send them to you after the PPV has started. Can I do this?
But if you do see something that you think is wrong, don't hesitate to drop a line. There are many places on the site
that show rankings, and sometimes, we make mistakes and forget to use the league you were in at the time of the ranking
being displayed, and instead use your current league. Hopefully, this isn't happening anywhere else, but if you think you find
something, let us know.
No, unfortunately we can't make exceptions. We advise all players to lock in predictions at least a day before the PPV is scheduled to happen,
that way no matter where a problem occurs, it can get taken care of before the PPV begins. At times, PPVs have matches that occur before the scheduled
start time of the PPV (possibly as an online-only exclusive), and we do adjust the cut-off point for predictions if that happens.
Prediction Games: I entered predictions for a PPV but the site is saying I didn't. What's wrong?
New Feature: You can now enable automatic random picks for PPVs. In the event that you forgot to lock in picks for a PPV, the site will automatically
run a random pick for you for that show. You will NOT be eligible for a prize (if one is offered) in the unlikely event you get 1st place for that show. You must enable this
option by clicking the SETTINGS link in the top-right (when you are logged in). You must re-enable this setting when seasons change.
There are a number of reasons why your predictions might not have been saved. If you skipped over any
item when making your picks, the site will display a message at the top of the prediction game informing you
of that and your previous picks will still be selected below. You need to find the item you missed and
make your pick before resubmitting your predictions. Another common cause is that when you click the Clear
Predictions button to make changes to your picks, you MUST resubmit your predictions even if no change is made.
(Note: now, the site will automatically use your last-submitted predictions, in case you accidentally cleared them)
Prediction Games: How can I be sure my predictions for a PPV are entered?
Prediction Games: What does the score that I see represent? It's two numbers.
There are a couple of things you can do to make sure your picks are saved and ready to go:
- On the PPV prediction page (ie, http://www.fourdown.org/WWE_Survivor_Series_2008), you should not be able to make changes to your picks without first clicking the Clear Predictions button. If you're seeing drop-downs and checkboxes, that means your predictions aren't saved!
- At the top of the site, you will see links for upcoming PPVs in your User Rank Box. If it says "Update Your Predictions", then you have picks locked in!
- * On the PPVs page, there is a column labeled "Played" - if it doesn't say Yes, that means your predictions aren't saved! (to me this is the easiest way to make sure I've played)
But also make sure the PPV in question has been opened for predictions!
You'll see your score as one number followed by another in parentheses. The first number is the total number
of points you earned, while the number in parentheses is the total number of base items you got correct. That takes
into account only winners of matches (not the finish or interference) and the questions. The first tie-breaker utilized
on the site is that number in parantheses, so a score of 125 (10) will be ranked higher than a score of 125 (9).
General: How can I get emails sent to me letting me know about new items on the site?
General: What prizes do you give out?
By going to your settings page
, you can choose which type of emails you'd like to get sent by the site.
If you choose not to receive the emails, you'll still get a message in your inbox at fourdown. If you're using the site through Facebook, you must have given
the application access to email you before these features will work for you.
Some PPV prediction games have prizes given out to the winners. It is typically a $25 Amazon gift certificate to the person who gets first place. If a prize is offered for a PPV, the PPV prediction game page will make a note
Prediction Games: How are prizes for PPVs awarded in the event of a tie?
Prizes were previously awarded for season winners but that has been temporarily currently discontinued starting with Season 17 due to lack of funds.
If two users get 1st place (which requires both their points and number of base items correct to be the same),
the tie-breaker is done by going to the season rankings. If the PPV was a WWE PPV, then the person with the higher WWE
rank on the site will be awarded the prize, and likewise for a TNA PPV.
Prediction Games: How are prizes for seasons awarded in the event of a tie?
The hard rule is: points -> number of base items -> rank in PPV's company -> rank in PPV's company, based on PPVs alone -> overall rank -> overall rank, based on PPV's alone
If it ties that far down, I'd likely award the prize to both people.
It works similarly to PPVs. If it's a tie in the overall rank, the tie-breaker will be the rank from the last PPV from either company.
If it's a tie in rank specific to a company, the tie-breaker will be the rank from that company's last PPV.
4-UP Fantasy: I don't know how the fantasy game works. Can you explain it in simple terms?
Check the 4-UP tab above for more detailed information. You pick a roster of superstars/divas each week and
you earn points based on how well they do. In a sense it is a prediction game that takes into account the three
brand shows (Raw, Smackdown, and ECW) and PPVs, as you will want to choose wrestlers that will do well each week
for your roster.
4-UP Fantasy: The season has already started, can I still play?
Also, note that 4-UP started officially during season 5 here at the site. Instead of starting the season counter at
1 for the first season of 4-UP, potentially confusing players who play both 4-UP and the prediction games, we're leaving
Yes. Unlike most fantasy games that run off a similar setup, you can join this game at any time. You will have less of a chance to win
the entire season, but anything is possible - and each week has its own first place winner.
4-UP Fantasy: What happens if I forget to pick a roster one week?
Your previous week's roster will be re-used. Keep in mind there are penalties that may apply for choosing a wrestler too many times
in a season, so letting the game run on auto-pilot may not be ideal. Though if your picks are good enough, theoretically you could win
the entire season by only picking a roster the first week of the season!
4-UP Fantasy: What do terms like "Regular FFA", "Massive FFA", "WSP", and "USP" mean?
The 4-UP tab has more detailed information on this. But quickly, "FFA" stands for "free-for-all", or in other words, "every man for himself."
A Regular FFA match would be any match containing more than two wrestlers where only one wrestler can win. The Regular FFA includes any match that
has between 3 and 10 wrestlers. (Elimination Chamber, 10-man Battle Royale, Fatal Fourway, Triple Threat, etc.) Massive FFA would be anything having
more than 10 wrestlers. (Royal Rumble) On that note, keep in mind that the tag matches apply whether or not a tag is necessary - as long as there
are teams. War Games or Lethal Lockdown would count as a 6+ Man Tag, even though tags are not a part of the match.
4-UP Fantasy: How are prizes for seasons awarded in the event of a tie?
WSP and USP are shorthand ways to note the amount of points earned. WSP stands for Wrestler Season Points and USP stands for
User Season Points. For example - if Hulk Hogan earns 100 points for week 1 in a season, he will have 100 WSP for week 1 and 100 WSP for the season so far.
If you picked him for your roster, and no penalties or bonuses apply, you will have earned 100 USP for your pick of Hulk Hogan that week. When
bonuses and penalties come into play, the USP you earned for a wrestler will be a different number than the WSP that wrestler earned.
The scores for the previous week(s) will be the tie-breaker.
General: How do I get my prize?
Your prize will be sent to the email address you used when registering with the site. If you have a request,
such as getting the gift card at amazon.co.uk rather than amazon.com, please contact us as soon as possible to let us know.
