Holy Crap! It's up to 55 teams now?! I was wondering if the gap between 24 and 48 was going to be made at first. Will the number of teams make the next hurdle, to 72 teams?

Of course, they all need to be finalized, etc...but STILL - Wow!!!

60 teams created so far, and still more than 90 users in the Free Agent pool... Lets get to 72 teams, people! :o) Free Agents - why not start your own team rather than just wait for invites?

I have one question. No, actually 2.

1: when will the first round start?
2: I'm away next week, and I'm a team captain. Is that a problem? for example, are there things hat only the captain can enable or see?

1 - The first competitive week of the season starts on this Sunday's rollover (ie the announcement of the new Member challenge), and includes the Open challenges on Tuesday as well.
2 - The only problem would be that your team will be down one player - there aren't any captain-specific controls (as long as your team is already finalised).

I am forming a team - please read and let me know if you are interested!

hey, i think there's a bug (or wad) in the invite mechanism...

a captain needs to be able to send out individual invitations, rather than re-inviting even those who have already accepted...

I think it has been mentioned that he has that on the "to do list"

cool!

here's another feature that would be really nice: the ability for a captain to send out a single pm to all the team members at once, rather than having to pm each individual.

A total of 64 teams have been created so far, and 47 of those are finalized.

and team F/ATE is finalized! this should be a rather interesting photographic adventure as this is one team where dpc scoring is secondary to photography ;-)

There is still 89 free agents. Happy to see it is falling. So all these teams that need to be finalized need to grab a few from that list.

I agree with this...had to get my teams real e-mail and just send out team e-mails like that. Once the team pages are created it will relieve that need a bit...but still a good feature.

Exactly i was worried about making it to 48 but looks like were good.

Make some teams there is alot of leadership potential just drowning in that pool!

Tom, I think you should keep banging your drum or playing your flute. Draw those people in and get it up to 72 teams!

"and 48 of those are finalized."

Awesome turn out so far -- there's a lot more interest than I was estimating. Unfortunately we realized going into this that some teams and people will have to be cut in the end. Currently there are only enough people in the Free Agent List for an extra 12 teams (some of those people may already be accounted for in the 16 unfinalized teams). Since the factor of 24 is set in stone currently, if the demand is there, we may consider allowing more players per team. Just throwing that out there.

Also, keep the suggestions coming, I'll try to be adding features to the system every week during the regular season and may consider releasing a public plan/todo list.

Edit to add that we discussed internally the 5-week / 6-week schedule issue and it looks like the 5-week schedule is the current favor. We should be adjusting things before the season starts on Monday to allow for this. The schedule of the playoffs are currently being discussed now as well.

Ooooooh! Add another player! Add another player!

This is becoming like the NCAA. So I assume there will still be the same amount of teams making the playoffs? Will be tough qualify given the high number of teams. Maybe there should be two playoffs running concurrently like how the NCAA basketball does it with their main tourney and the NIT. Just a thought.

Double elimination, maybe?
