We aren't going to get to 24 teams unless some of the teams of 7 cut down to 5 ... am I the only one seeing this? Some of the people on that free agent list obviously aren't going to participate.

Is there a plan in place for when (not if) this happens?


One would hope, but know this, some folks are back here because of the teams they participated with before, so simply asking some teams of 7 to lose one or two people may not add an available person to the pool.

In YOUR case, you could volunteer for a team that needs players...

We are lucky Free Studies don't count for the DPL, otherwise your team would be almost unbeatable :)

I have had soooooo much help figuring all this out I can't believe I'm actually going to try to answer you LOL

I think once the 5th member officially accepts, the team will "finalize" automatically. Then you just have to come up with a logo and pop it in - don't ask me how to do that as I'm not there yet.

Just an observation here...

I know that several in the pool have been sent invites...I donít understand why your not accepting whatís being sent out? Do you not know how to accept? At this point RodFulks team is the last to fill and we still need 3 MORE TEAMS!!! That means someone will have to step up to the plate and captain the last 3 teams filled...and if the 17 in the pool arenít accepting what they are being offered...this just wonít happen.

Last scenario is that the 7 player teams will all have to give up one player to make the other teams...

And I know ya want to stay together...but something has to give here...itís either form the last 4 teams, trim the teams, recruit more players OR NOT PLAY THE GAME...which is the worst of these scenarios!!!

So if your in the pool and not accepting invites...free up the space...donít let these last 4 captains just tread water!

Or if your in the pool and REALLY want to play....give a shout out here so we can get the last 4 teams done!! please!!!

BTW RodFulk is a great player and heíll make a great captain...he was on my team once and I really enjoyed his interaction with the players...and best of all he wants to learn and heís freaking ready to lead a team!!!

. . . recruit more players . . .


I know it's been suggested before, but can a simplified and revised version of the initial e-mail notice be sent out once more? I got mine, but I know when I check my spam box I almost always find stuff in there from places that normally get through. So I don't think spam filters are always arbitrary. It's worth a try. And several said they only knew about this from friends' FB pages. So if you have any "old" DPChallenge FB friends and haven't mentioned the league on your page, that's worth a try - even if the team you are captaining or on is full.

I think it's easier than that: 3 captains out of the free agent pool players and everything is done :)

Problem is no ones waving their hand for captain and several are not accepting invites....

I know for a fact that at least one of the people on that list (free agent pool) got an email invitation, came to the site and signed up, and basically hasn't been back since ... so essentially decided not to play, but hasn't removed his name. Given that I (as a captain) have 2 other invitations pending which have been unanswered for a while now ... I think it very safe to say we need a new plan. 24 teams are not going to naturally form.

My point!!

I had to email and private message people to get their attention. For whatever reason, the invite isnít working too well. I had a team assembled in less than a day once I asked that way and even had many pm me since.

This one is point - it can't be that difficult. I couldn't see how it could have been a drama with still 10 days to have the teams ready

Still need 16 players to "Finish" teams 21 and 22 and to create 2 more teams. Probably will get a few stragglers coming to the party late, but it's not all said and done yet.

I still can't feel the tragedy with 10 days left. 10 days.

I think with one more we will have five. So far a very versatile team with infinite possibilities. Thanks Ja-9.
