UPDATE: So far, I'm in the league obviously lol...PM's have been sent out to the fourteen people who've asked in this and the other locked thread, and I also PM'ed a few other people who've done the league in the past so if everyone joins the league is filled.
There's certainly no guarantee everyone of the twenty does sign up (especially since some of the requests were a while ago and maybe others just haven't posted because they don't have the time this year), so if anyone else wants to go on a reseve list I'll let you know.
Right now I have the draft date set on Thursday Sept. 30 at 7:30...I'd rather do it the last week of preseason and the Devils have home preseason games Tuesday and Friday that week so unlike last year this time I'm taking into account some might want to attend either or both
Plus I don't really want to do it on the weekend so lemme know if the time itself is an issue (the date'll probably stick unless enough people have an issue with it; we do have a month to discuss).
When you do sign up look over the rules and see if there's anything you want to tweak, so far I've pretty much just kept the same settings from last year. And remember there ARE game limits for every position, always always always a couple of the noobs forget about that.
And one other thing, to encourage a more active league this year I'll say the first seven teams in the standings this year get auto-invites back for next season. Usually it pretty much works out that way anyway cause the top seven are generally the more active players but I'll make that official this year so that there is a de facto incentive for placement even if you can't win the league itself.
Conversely, if you're in the bottom half of the league (11-20) and
you're not particularly active (fewer than ten moves, keeping IR players in your lineup, etc) you're automatically going on the reserve list next season. This league's basically advertised itself for me this year and I could probably get a boatload more people to join if I posted anything in the status updates, so I don't want people around who are just taking up a space this year
This certainly doesn't apply to you if you're active and just have a bad season, it's just a failsafe to protect against people packing it in early December.
