When is the chat going to be active (I mean the one for the Teams)?

Those will be created automatically at rollover into the active season.

Thanks. It would have been useful to have it active before to be able to communicate with the teammates, but it's ok, no problem.

I'm guessing that it would be hard to let people come and go on the forum... a nightmare, actually. Especially in cases like ours when one member of our team had to leave... and we've had to get another one. Or... as Bear predicts, the teams will change members at the last minute if we don't have 24 full teams.

I'm loving it that they're working so hard for DPL to happen!!

Seriously, folks, we are 1 person away from making this happen. Of the "un-finalized" teams if you spread out the Free Agents among them then we are 1 person short of having 24 teams, regardless of the argument about finalized teams having 6 or 7 players (which I get).

This is nothing but good for this place.

I suspect, and this is just my guess, if that feature were to be activated before DPL4 started it would also suppress your ability to vote on images submitted by your teammates before DPL4 started, whether or not you knew which images those were and it would be a shame to reduce votes any further at this point!

Just bit the bullet, created a team, and sent out four invitations. The wait begins.

Okay just got resurrected my old team, but no one is really around from the previous team, so I sent out some invites. If I don't hear back within a few days, I'll put the word out here and we'll go from there. My team has always put more of a focus on learning than winning. The idea is to both put in and take away as much knowledge as you can. I have grown so much through the DPL in the past as a photographer, and would love to share what I have learned... Conversely, I'm looking to learn from what others have to share. Lastly, the team has always been Art driven, and art is very subjective. Yes, your shot may not score well, but get it critiqued, get the most out of the team feedback and enter it!

Anyway, if this sounds like your kinda team, send me a PM and if I don't hear back from the invites I sent out, I'll send you one in a few days.

I want to participate in DPL, however during this first season I am away for about a month during active participation dates, which would not be pulling my weight in a team. So my question is do you have to be a part of a team this season or does each season see a new Free Agent pool for new teams to be put together? I don't want to miss out for the future seasons.

Now that Bear is an admin, we are hoping to hold DPLs more regularly. It would be unfair to your team if you couldn't participate for the first month.

Not for nothing, but we found it easier to use a group PM instead instead of the private forum. Heck, we've had one going just to keep up with each other ever since the last DPL.

And hopefully there will be another timetable then. This DPL is in the middle of holidays for quite some people, meaning they might have to miss a number of challenges. But despite this, very happy to see the DPL back so let's rock it!!

We have 21 teams now...we need to fill those teams...hats off to those that have stepped up to the plates to creat a team!!! Balls in your court pool people!! Letís play!!!
06/12/2018 12:57:21 PM · #169
Looks like we are getting close to the number of teams but need more people on some of those teams.

Can people in the pool apply to join a team or do they need to wait to be invited?
