After discussions between the SC and Admins and with ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Southern Gentleman, DPC would like to announce the following with respect to WPL:

- Scott will continue to operate WPL through the conclusion of the 4th season.
- DPC will assist Scott by providing data if required.
- DPC will integrate the WPL as a site feature, starting with season five.
- We will work directly with Scott during the remainder of season four and in the "gap" between seasons four and five to implement the change

We feel that the WPL has become a great addition to DPC, and would like to publicly express our gratitude to Scott and to all those who have assisted him with the WPL, for making it the tremendous success that it is. It's one more example of the great community that we have here.

Here's to many more fun and successful WPL seasons!

Thanks again

Even though I've not participated in the WPL, I think this is a great gesture by DPC. However, it begs the question that if WPL will now be integrated into the site, will it be open to any number of teams or will it remain limited? It seems that the nature of the competition requires a restricted number of teams, but if it's a permanent part of the site, it also seems like it should be available to as many members as possible. I'm curious how this will develop.

COngratulations WPL.

Honestly having teams in DPC is cool!

You guys seem way too happy over news that the Outcasts can continue their reign as champions in the foreseeable future. :P

Seriously, that's a great gesture by everyone involved. It's amazing how much the WPL has taken off. Nice to know Scott's little baby will continue.

What an excellent solution. Congratulations to all involved for coming up with such an elegant way to keep the WPL going.

To those of us who are addicted, WPL is a significant addition to the DPC way of life. (Even if some of us, like me, are just on mascot duty during this session.)

Hi everyone
I'm in the process of updating the WPL4 scores. Thanks for all the work you guys and gals have done to keep the WPL running during its uncertainty. I should have everything updated by tomorrow and we will be back on schedule.

I would like to thank DPChallenge.com; it's admins and the SC for integrating the WPL into this site. I feel countless users have had fun with the WPL and by having run under the direction of DPChallenge.com it will be even better.

Here’s to a great community of people
Thanks,
Scott

Respect to DPC for jumping right on the issue. Thanks to Southern Gentleman for retaking the helm in order for season 4 to continue. You have alot of friends here at DPC of whom I'm proud to be one of.

This is good to hear, while I don't participate, I hope to one day.

Just happy that we will have an opportunity to dethrone the OOOOtcasts!

Great news and thanks to Scot and the others at DPC for keeping the ball rolling.

Although I participated in only one season, I think the integration of the WPL is a great idea and a wonderful addition to DPC. I think Scott deserves a lot of gratitude for his efforts. Perhaps DPC should offer him a lifetime membership or some other such consideration for his efforts and for developing what will surely become an integral part of this site's future. I hope I am not out of line, but I just think he deserves some special recognition for this.
