Alright, so now that we've had a chance to claim who's staying and who's free to be adopted, it's time to lay out some ground rules. Last year's rules thread is here. Rules from last year that I think are good enough to stick around:
- Secondary draft board. Last year, I believe a user had a set amount of time (12 hours, 24 hours, something like that) to draft, then if that user hadn't drafted, he or she was skipped and thrown into a secondary draft pool. Anyone in that pool could draft the next time they logged in.
- The formula used last year was draft points = #comments + 20*(months of membership) + 35*(number of FanPosts & FanShots). Rank in order of descending draft points. This seemed equitable enough to everyone last year, so unless anyone has any qualms I'll be using the same formula.
I'd still like to discuss the process of compensation for lost adoptees. If your adoptee was traded, you get first shot at whom he was traded for, but if you don't want that person, is that any different than throwing your adoptee back to the masses? If your son was a minor league free agent (say, Travis Ishikawa), are you in the compensation pool?
Anyway, here's the rules thread. Feel free to rec it, since the FanPosts section is all f'ed up anyway and this one is kind of important.
