    Okay guys, I have had it with this scheduling bullshit. It makes me sick that some folks can't schedule games, because it is purely effort. All it takes is saying "Hey username I can play *day* or *day*." If you can play anytime, simply tell your opponent to name a time.

    Most importantly, SHOW UP WHEN YOU AGREE TO A TIME. If you can't make it, notify your opponent.

    So, all this said, I have a plan to get rid of these issues.

    The two problems I see are these:

    1) I or broth can't always be around to set guys to auto.

    Solution to #1: Get more people set as admins in the file so they can set people to auto. These will be people I trust in the league. If you are interested. speak up in this thread.

    2) Guys not scheduling worth a ****.

    Solution to #2: Kick them out.


    So I need two things from people in this thread:

    A) Are you interested in being made an admin in the file?

    B) Who have you had difficulty scheduling with?

    Simply put guys, if your name comes up a lot in an answer to part B, I may remove you at my own discretion. I've had enough of this.

    If advance is only 48hrs, the scheduling thread needs to be up at a MINIMUM of 24 hrs a head of time.

    You hv a few volunteers for admin, also I'm new so I will stay in the background.

    Only played 5 owner opponents but no scheduling issues.

    I think the scheduling problem Is a product of the time advance schedule. I think 72 hour advance would be more productive.

    Only person I had real issues with was Marky Mark , I had a mix up with Julius by that was just miscommunication rather than lack of effort.

    Had trouble scheduling Cleveland game but that guy is just a douche :D

    Advance times maybe too quick for some, not for me, it's fine but you should check for that.

    It would be good to have someone at night who can do things like set people to auto later in the day or night. BBJ is around late and can do it. Even I could as well if need be.

    Anyone can make those threads- Just do it the same way I do it (name, format etc)

    I do agree though, I haven't gotten those up "on time"

    Maybe I will start doing them a week ahead-- like when we advance to week 1, I put up week 2 thread.

    I agree- we will take a vote at season's end to see if we want to get away from M/W/F and go to straight 72 hours... I am in no hurry to get as many seasons as possible in with this league. I would rather guys have time to play their user games then cram and try to get extra seasons in.

    1.I said earlier this season and got shot down, but i think a pm with ppl cells for text is a great idea. more ways to schedule is always the better option. to go with point number 2 i will say if scheduling via text it should be mentioned in a scheduling thread. ala me and kasper have set a tme for so and so via text.

    2.I know it will be a little more time consuming and more clutter, but we should do matchup threads along with weekly threads. weekly threads could be used for interesting news and trash talk. while matchup threads will show more clearly who is trying to schedrule and who is not.

    3. repercussions for teams not making a effort. 1st offense he goes on auto for the week he is on and the week after. 2nd offense. i will hunt you, i will find you, and i will boot you.

    4.People should be checking more often. coming on the site once a day is not going to cut it and makes it really hard to schedule. checking every few hrs shouldn't be hard for most with smart phones. i dont but i always check right before i leave and as soon as i am home on the 3 days i don't have access.. thisis also where cell phones come in handy. i knew i wasnt going to be able to get on right away so i shot gomez a text and we hammered out a time.

    5.I like the advance schedule. i think we just need to get ppl in line with how to schedule and get rid of the ones who don't. i know the past 2-3 weeks i have check the unplayed games and checked the schedule thread to see 0 effort by either team.. I also think its unacceptable for ppl who are against the cpu to have their game simmed. If you can't find time to play the cpu you are probably to busy to be in a league either that or your putting your tail between your legs and hoping you get a sim win.

    While I applaud the effort there is no way in hell anyone in this league is getting my cell number , I still don't know enough of these guys to trust them with the possible annoyance that could cause.

    I don't think we can force content on these guys , or me for that matter lol. I feel like with Twitch old school content is on its last leg, and I don't have the energy to write up anything decent when I know that half if not 75% of the league won't even read it. Not trying to be a negative Nancy , just stating what I feel the facts to be over here.

    With all of that said I think we should float around some of our open spots as an option for a second league to some of the vets in HK or The Q , I'm not sure were going to get many more new guys in here with Madden being almost 2 months old at this point.

    Just my 0.02$

    Scheduling will be done on the forums- it's not hard. Everyone in this thread only cited a few individuals (none of which are in the league any more) so I don't see any reason how we are doing it now wouldn't keep working.

    I don't think #2 is necessary for the above reason as well. I think we are down to people that know what they are doing now and how to schedule.
