    Guys, most of you are doing a great job with posting the goings on of your team (ie - game summaries), but there are others who quite frankly suck at it.

    Fact is, this is a premier TSO league, and part of participating in the league is the expectation that you participate on the forums - through posting of game summaries AND taking part in other discussions. Posting game summaries is NOT optional. Everyone should be posting summaries of your games, wins or losses. Right now, it's not happening consistently for some of you, and for some of you it isn't happening at all.

    After discussing it, Bondzai007 and I have come up with the following rule:

    Each user must complete a minimum of 3 game summaries per week.

    That's not much to ask, and if you can't do it that means one of three things - you have been out of town for a week or more, you aren't playing your games, or you are too lazy to post a summary. The first excuse is valid, the last two are not.

    Should anyone fail to post the required 3 summaries per week for 2 weeks, they will receive a warning and if they don't catch up by the end of the following week they will be removed.

    We have elected to make this black-and-white so that there is no confusion. We want this league to thrive and the only way that happens is if everyone involved is committed to participating.

    Please post in this thread that you have read and agreed to this rule.

    Signed and understood... my only concern is with user games. What happens if there's a week where someone only has user games and they win 2 or less?

    Here's the thing - I think some people have used the whole idea that 'the winner of the user game is the only one who has to post' as an excuse to be lazy and not discuss the game.

    If you play someone and they don't write anything up on the game, that's on them. However, it doesn't excuse the loser from posting anything on the game. Post the score, say you got your ass-whipped or whatever. Just post something.

    Likewise, just because your opponent who beat you posted something doesn't mean you shouldn't post a response.

    We are looking for guys who want to contribute to the future success of this league on the forum. If anyone is looking to do the bare minimum they probably won't last long.

    I'd like to see posts from both users. Not sure where the winner posting thing started but it doesn't have to apply here.

    Agreed - leave it to Bond to say in one sentence what it took me three sentences to say.

    Fair enough... I just figured the whole winner posts thing from most ODs/FIFA applied but that works too.

    I understand, I know I am bad at this. It would be easier if the online association web page worked.

    Yeah the winner posting thing seems to be pretty site wide, but we are the only premier NBA league. Let's go above and beyond.

    I have a feeling we are going to see the online association part of the NBA site up and running right around when the new rosters are out. I have no facts to base that on though...

    No offense man, but that response doesn't really inspire confidence.

    If you are stretched too thin with other leagues to post summaries and contribute in other discussions here, it might be best to just come to terms with that now. We want all you guys here but only if everyone can contribute to the league's success.

    As soon as 2k releases the revised rosters with rookies and FA moves. Hopefully in a couple of weeks.

    You guys need to read the above rule and sign off. This rule will be enforced, and if anyone isn't active both in playing their games and posting their results here, they will be removed.
