So about a month ago, before I got super busy, I spent some time looking at other leagues on our site trying to find ways to make our league more exciting to be a part of. Now, I don't mean that the E is boring in anyway, but those of us that have been here for 2 or 3 years now are basically just rehashing the same old league format year after year with nothing new but the subtle changes in the game itself. One of the things I realized while looking through league after league is that when you really get down to it, all of these leagues look identical. So I began brainstorming some ideas to spice ours up a bit, make it feel like an official piece of work. What I came up with was to brand each of our recurrent threads with a banner. Its just a little aesthetic touch and it may not seem like a lot, but I think it will really add to our league and start to set us apart from the rest. Now, I may have come up with the idea but I did not do any of the labor intensive work creating these headers/banners. That credit belongs to Nautica, who has been doing some real quality work around here lately. We've spent the last month or so bouncing ideas off each other and this is what we've come up with so far: Introducing our new look: Our banner for our seasonal and dynasty-long recruit tracker. I plan on using google docs to keep a record of recruiting going throughout the dynasty. This will be our banner when we begin voting players into our GOAT Hall of fame. For our record/statistics keeping sticky thread, also using google docs. This will be for our weekly scores thread. I'm debating whether or not I should just combine it with the game scheduling thread to keep all of that in one place, but right now I'm leaning against it. We also have a new league signature in the works, but it is currently awaiting approval from the boss-man. There will be more to come, but let us know what you think of this so far. Hopefully this gets you even more amped to start up our 2012 dynasty in a week or so.
