This way you have it with the deadline sure has a lot of threads. Wasn't that thew problem in the first place. I liked it the way it was last year. Messed up but it made for one great thread.

On another note if we hear rumors and unofficial deals and stuff should we post it here?

Come on, obviously not everyone is going to be satisfied but can we just stick to what we have now? I just spent the past half hour cleaning everything up for the board and there's STILL complaints?

Also, smaller trades can be discussed in here. The purpose of the discussion threads are for bigger trades (for the most part).

I'm not complaining but I am wondering why people want you guys to work everything out so it pleases them. You can find out all the deals on the front page or any major site anyways.

Rumors go in the Trade Rumors Forum

Next year we let Stubbs be the admin for 24 hours. (-:

Well, I figure this way is more work for the admins, but if they're willing to do it... I'm happy either way. I'm easy.

Because when there are 4 trades and 14 posts for those trades, the board becomes useless, with posters fighting for position and repeating themselves.

Now the board looks organized, is easy to post on and easy to read, thuis attracting more posters.

Now imagine tomorrow if there are say 50 trades and say 250 posts. The board would be useless.

I think we've done a good job getting it ready for a great day for hockey.

Why not follow our rules?

I really don't care how the trades are organized just that soon when the gates of hell are opened and we're flooded with many new trades, we might have a problem.

Guys. We survived last year's deadline, the year that had the most trades to date.

Who's to say we cannot handle this year? We have two more admins (myself and Has), with myself and DM being on the boards ALL DAY. msweet will be around, and I'm sure Rock and red will do their best to check in as much as possible.

I really don't think it's fair to continue to complain after all the work we've put into this. And like msweet said, the easier it is, the more attractive it is. The easier it is on you, the easier it is on us.

I think "unconfirmed" = "rumor".

RD: You can't please everyone, ya gotta please yourself. People like to complain... and admins are going to be the butts of complaints. Goes with the job. Be happy that most of are very happy with all the work you guys are doing...

It's not like this is a pay site, we all come here for free, I'll take any time dedicated to organizing the site the admins can give, and with much appreciation.

It's not that difficult 783. The rules are from lessons we learned last year and we intend to follow them. It makes our life easier and keeps the information flowing.
