    Is anyone interested in doing a skype call tomorrow night around 8pm est - 9pm ? I plan on recording it, and turning it into a podcast. I want to do this once a week, but i figured a good time to start would be before the season starts. Ive tried to organize this in other leagues but ultimately failed, but since we are already on Skype, it wouldnt be hard to organize a call.

    THURSDAY - 8PM - 9PM EST Skype Call

    Topics that will be covered:

    - Offseason Winners / Losers
    - Predict Division Winners
    - Look at each Division
    - Rookies
    - Whatever else comes up

    I don't dislike Skype for calls, I DO dislike the chat because it robs TSO of money.

    I just am not available for a call tomorrow night.

    So... what do you want me to do? Are you wanting to go the premier league only route or something? Im not sure there is anything that can be done about 3rd party IM software.

    I don't want you to do anything. We've hashed this 100 times. It is what it is.

    Is there a way to have multiple CBs that are available to premier leagues? I think "the other site" I go to has more the 1 CB and designated for some leagues that they have there.

    I'm not entirely sure if I'll be available at that time, but if I am I'll put on my radio voice and pop in.

    I think I'll be around on skype then, but there's also a non-zero chance I'll be doing work. I should know for sure tomorrow at about 4ish.

    Yes, but in order to have 'nice' chatboxes, they are a bit more resource heavy. It would likely take big upgrades for us to support it. Then we have to worry about permissions, etc to have it be 'league-only'.

    Ultimately the more dialogue that happens off the forums (whether that's a chat box or IM client) the less content that hits the search engines and the less relevant we are to finding more people like us.

    I'm all for giving leagues more tools to add value, but ultimately it's what Shaun said: It is what it is.

    I'll definitely be around if you're still thinking about it. And I don't really have any set schedule for anything really... I'm usually just out until 6-7 pm, but for the next week it may be closer to midnight-ish.
