    You really don't have to make a thread about this. No they are not pointless, their called waiting lists for a reason. When we have a free spot in the leagues I'm in their the first folks to be contacted before its blasted in the new members' forum. Patience is a virtue.

    they are the best way to go if your trying to get into a league. i would suggest picking 2 or 3 leagues to get on their waiting list

    It's not a huge deal, and my question is more of curiosity than trying to whine or complain. I've just noticed a couple of leagues that seem to disregard the waiting list. I am on a waiting list for a league and have been one of the two people listed for about a month. I check in on their forum just to see kind of what's going on, and noticed they've added people who were never on the published waiting list. Just wondering if the waiting lists are actually supposed to be used for filling positions, or if it's just a deal where the commish can invite whoever they want regardless of if there have been people that applied for spots in the leagues.

    Well I look at the waiting list first and give those guys priority but I also do a search on them and see if they're controversial in their other leagues and how many leagues they joined since their initial interest.

    I personally think they are kind of pointless. I guess if your league roster is kind of fluid they might serve more purpose. It seems more often that not when you go to add said person on waiting list they have either lost interest or are know where to be found.

    Yeah, I think they're pointless really. I agree with you.
