    Guys, let me take a minute to share with you the most, productive way to get a game scheduled. What I have seen the last couple weeks, are some pretty sad and half-ass attempts to schedule games. Your scheduling post should include:
    • Your opponent's username via a "tag", done by placing an '@' symbol before the username. Ex: @ + RRAHx2 = RRAHx2
    • The week you are scheduling for (Week 5,6,7)
    • YOUR availability (include SPECIFIC times WITH THE TIME ZONE, not just 'free whenever' or "thursday night")
    • If possible, the best, or an ALTERNATIVE way to reach you (in case plans change, eg. cell #, e-mail address, skype name, AIM, etc)
    • If you can not give your an opponent an exact time, at least post when you will be able to give them an exact time. (Hey not sure when I can play yet, but I will let you know by tonight @ 5PM CST)
    ALL SCHEDULING ATTEMPTS SHOULD BE MADE WITHIN 24 HOURS OF SCHEDULING THREAD POSTING

    Examples of good scheduling attempts:
    • "Hey @Example, for our Week 7 game I am free between 7PM CST and 11PM CST, Mon/ Tues. I am not available Weds. If you can't reach me here text @ 777-xxx-xxxx."
    • "@Example, I can only play our week 3 game tomorrow night (Wednesday) @ 8PM PST. I am unavailable the rest of the week. Will this work for you?"
    Examples of bad scheduling attempts:
    • "Hey Dolphins owner, when can you play?"
    • "@Example. I'm free thursday."
    • "@Example, I can play @ 7PM." (no day or time zone)
    Also, If guys need to go on AP so their opponent can play, please let me know ASAP. Thanks, guys.

    Guys, we're starting to come across a fairly consistent problem with AP's. Quite simply, if you know you aren't going to play your game, weather it's vacation or other scheduling conflicts, and you have acknowledged you will go on AP.... DO IT YOURSELF!! Take the 2 min and turn on your console to set yourself to AP.

    Don't rely on @Rrrahx2 to get it done, as sometimes he can't AP a team until the final hours of week and by then it makes it difficult for the other person to get the game in.

    Hopefully this will help things go a little smoother when we aren't able to play our games.

    I think everyone needs a reminder on how we need to go about scheduling in this league and how we want everyone to work together to try and figure out a time to play their games within the advance schedule.
