    NEW REQUIREMENT FOR THE OMFL

    We are going to try and help with the communication issue that has caught us this past season.

    the new requirement is that all owners make and post their AIM's (AOL INSTANT MESSENGER). You can also use trillian which uses AIM, ICQ, MSN, ECT.

    Either way post your AIM or make an AIM and get on it and use it. This will be our main way of communication to help with scheduling, trades, ect.

    If AOL is the main line of communication, then when it comes to a game getting simmed because it was not played before the deadline, what happens?? We had used the forums for game time decisions because it showed who made an attempt to get a time agreed upon. Will we move to if its not in before the advance its going to be a straight sim, no playing the CPU because you showed an effort to get a game in and the other owner did not?

    bigox, nothing changes. you still must post within 3 days of an advance and have a time agreed to on the forums. if you agree on AIM then you must post here. this will always be my way of tracking. Forcing owners to get AIM will simply help all of the owners to better communicate.

    I don't know if this is too much to ask, but is there anyway to have a semi-permanent chat room via aim? I know you can just create one and name it basically anything.. say OMFL.

    I don't know, but I have been in some leagues that have a chat room via boards that always got things going (trades, etc.).

    Just a thought.

    Folks, this is now MANDATORY. Get an AIM account rolling and get it set up in your TF profile and get the nickname rolling. Putting this off is the equivalent of not scheduling a game/doing a write-up/etc.

    This is vital to the success of our league to keep us communicating. GET IT DONE.

    Thx nate for the clarification, Seems redundant but if it helps with communication then its a good idea. I havent been on AIM is years but for what its worth, i seem to remember you cant send someone a message when they are offline. This was probably 5 to 6 years ago so they might have fixed it. On ICQ you can send someone a message whether online or offline and it will delivered the next time they sign on. This would help big time because if both parties arnt on AIM at the same time, its worthless. But again, i am basing this off AIM of the early 2000's so it might be just like Q now. i will get my end up and running tonight.
    My AIM of years back was bigox99, so im gonna try and log in that name but if it doesnt work ill post an update.

    your right bigox, i love icq, but most ppl dont. forums are always 1st, using this its just another tool that is at your disposal. we went with AIM just because its what most ppl wanted. i have them all and use trillian. aim, yahoo, and icq.

    Guys, be sure to utilize the AIM field in your profile, it will give everyone a quick way to get a hold of you as they will see when you are online while browsing the forums.
