Thanks for the clarification, folks. There's already a lot of stuff to read through!

*And* it looks like Zero Division already has it's sixth player! This is really great. I'm thrilled, and thrilled that the other teams can breathe easier, too.

EDIT: Jeez, now I gotta make player trading cards? ;-)


email me if you would like my template. I can mail you the PSD file.

this is what it looks like

Do I withdraw the invite to person #6, or send a formal invite to someone to make person #7?

Does this make sense? :-}


I had the same thought, so I just sent another invite to a seventh person. From what I read in the rules, you can have no <5 <=6 <=7. Does that make sense? At least 5 and then 6 or 7. You can also change players once in the season or switch players after checking with the site council. I'm still not fully clear on it though. If the six and seven will be reserve players or what?


6 and 7 will play the same as the rest. you just have the option in case you want a small team. in reality you are doing yourelf a big disservice if you only have 5. you can change one player, one time from what i understand.

They will not be reserve players. Their score will count each week just like the all photographers. If the 6 and 7 player (photographer) has one of the four highest team scores then their score will count.

Every member of a team has the same rights with the exception:
1. only a member can start a team
2. Members have the opportunity to enter two challenges per week that can count toward the teams score where a R-User can only enter one unless they upgrade to a member.
05/13/2007 09:19:46 PM · #9
So then all seven members have the same rights and privileges? Depending on whether they are DPChallenge members or registered users, I mean.

it will also make for lots of entries, minimum 360-504 per challenge just from the DPL competitors if between 5-7 entries per team per challenge


I think they will be bigger at first but remember that not all DPl players are members so they can't enter the member challenge and the two open challenges usually even things out.

72.

wasn't there a team created called something like the 11th hour? Did they go away so they could come back in and get themselves finalized at the 11th hour and leave everyone hanging on the edge of their seats until then?

We just need three more teams finalized! Two teams are right on the verge of finalization, needing only 1 more team member to accept. The rest of the teams need any where from 2-4 team members to accept.

Go go go!

In other words, 4 people total would do the trick. :)

I despise Yanko, but only for the next 5 minutes, since it's the pre-season. I'm saving it up for the regular season.

Affirmative. =/


No chance that the league format could be changed to a cumulative rotisserie style( I'm a fantasy football geek) scoring system?-instead of "Head to Head". This would allow all the teams to participate regardless of the number of teams.
