First things first. As most of you know I am a late night, west coast guy. I am on my xbox just about every day and also on TSO pretty much every day. I know I can drive a solid dynasty but I want to make sure it's going to work for everyone. I know that with my late hours (after 10:30 pm pacific time) make it impossible to play games against some guys. So a couple things rattling around in my head..... Just run this thing next release cycle just like this one and we'll just deal with whatever scheduling issues with regards to me, essentially limiting who will be able to or "have to" play me each season Re-imagine the league as a west coast OD where anyone who joins would have to be able to play user games in an acceptable timeslot for west coast guys - this option would obviously make it difficult/impossible for a couple guys to stay in the OD Here is a member by member look based on what i've seen so far Baron and papaloke have both gone premiere (congrats) and will both find spots in premiere dynasties. My impression is that you both intend to keep 4th horseman as your "second" league. Baron can occasionally play late but papaloke can't really play later than 10 or 11 EST generally Hokie Effect is in T3 and staying there, said at one point he would return here if we are a CC dynasty again. Hokie can't play late night games, at least as I view late night (being 3 hours behind). Dmiller28 is brand new, he stays up late. He is looking for a premiere league, but as a new guy he may not get picked up right away, we'll have to see. Also, Dmiller may not feel like this OD is the best fit for him and could choose to get in somewhere else for '13 Abominatrix said at one point that his availability could change but to count him in for the long haul for now. He can play the occasional late night game and is up reasonably late for an EST guy. He's also in one or two more leagues here at TSO and I'm not sure where 4th will ultimately fall for him in terms of priority Selvy9 can regularly stay up late and has been an active member here in 4th even when he's been in other leagues in addition to this one RyanC is a bit of a wildcard to me, we haven't really talked and he joined late in the cycle, I know he is in multiple ODs and I am not entirely sure what his plans are for '13 -Cougars- already said he has 2 other ODs that come first and he will not be here for 13 So where does that leave us? Everyone (except cougars) check in and let me know what's up. Basically, if you want to be in the OD for the next cycle and are willing and able to play your games and provide regular content in the forums you've got a spot and we'll make it work. If that's not you, no hard feelings, we'll close out '12 and wish each other luck. If you aren't sure, we'll start moving forward hoping you'll come around but also try to get a full roster + wait list just in case. We'll also use this thread to finalize the OD setup for '13 and begin the team selection process.
