FF2011: Official GWJFFL (non-keeper) signup and discussion thread

Alright, my issue is fixed thanks to nice fleaflicker email support

Still waiting for an email address for Zacny and for three other folks to sign themselves up for GWJFFL3.

Although it's not a requirement, if you go to your user account settings (this might work), I'd really appreciate it if you could make your "display name" match your GWJ handle. Thanks.

P.S. Still waiting on 3 folks to sign up in GWJFFL3.

Edit: New maps.

I'll be moving to NC next month, so we'll need to change it!

I think this thread is telling me to move to the pacific northwest.

Well I didn't move you to Columbus because apparently it's temp.

Edit: But tell me where you're going and I'll update it now.

Wilmington, NC

Map updated.

There's definitely going to have to be some realignment next year.

Edit: Still waiting on chumster and Indiana0210 in GWJFFL3.

If the last two spots aren't filled by the end of the day, I will find someone else.

Setting up now...been working non stop sorry

Chumster is out. Sent an invitation to Damnsammit since I was surprised he didn't sign back up after winning GWJFFL2 last season. Will send invites out to a couple more (with the first one to claim it winning the spot) tomorrow afternoon if he hasn't grabbed it by then.

What's the league password?

He gave new meaning to terms like WRBC - Wide Receiver By Cowboys.

I'm actually tempted to follow his strategy.

Sorry, dude, your invitation from Fleaflicker went out last Wednesday and you had a bit more than a week to fill out a few form fields and click some buttons. You can't expect to show up at the store after the doors are locked and have them still sell you something. You're welcome to try again next year.

Second GWJFFL3 invite fired off to thejustinbot. I've now got two invites out for one slot. First in wins. Act now. Operators are standing by.

Edit: Well that was fast. It looks like we're finally full. I'll move on the the next phase now: sorting out divisions and figuring out draft dates.

Edit2: Since I was already realigning GWJFFL3 this year and since I had to move teams around to get them into the right divisions anyway and since thejustinbot came back, I changed where some of the teams were going to the two gents from Greenville, SC could be in the same division. Map updated.

Edit3: Division alignments verified and draft orders set. Check your emails for links to the whenisgood board for your league's draft. Remember, the first league to get full participation gets first shot at their draft times. You might need to go to the message board itself to get the full link as fleaflicker tends to truncate them down in the text.

Sent in my preferred draft times (GWJFFL3) and, like I said in the note I sent in as well, my wife is planning a family trip over the long weekend. I put my preferred times, but if I am the only one keeping GWJFFL3 from getting a unanimous time, I will just set up an auto-draft.

Oooh. Drafting last. I have a love/hate relationship with that. Better than being in the middle, for me.

Remember when you're indicating your availability, folks, that, in most cases, we've got participants on both coasts and you're going to have to be a bit flexible. Don't just block out the times that are best for you; indicate any time that you could do it if you had to. Thanks.

Edit: Also note that in order to squeeze these in between the end of preseason and the start of week 1, I'm going to have to fit 4 drafts into 5 nights so seriously... be flexible.

Same, and same. Wifey is out of town for the weekend. Let's get that draft done!

Except my wife expects me to go with her.

BOOO!!

C'mon GWJFFLK and GWJFFL2!! I want to get good times

I have a feeling the three leagues that fill up first will be on the 5th, 6th, and 7th respectively, with the odd man out getting either really late at night one of those days or sometime over the weekend.

Ouch... I'm on vacation that weekend and then have other FFL drafts Monday and Tuesday. Looks like I'm only available Wednesday.

Your Events Created Name Results Aug 25, 2011 GWJFFLK Draft 2011 4 so far Aug 25, 2011 GWJFFL1 Draft 2011 4 so far Aug 25, 2011 GWJFFL2 Draft 2011 6 so far Aug 25, 2011 GWJFFL3 Draft 2011 5 so far

1 and 2 already have no date/times that work for everyone and K and 3 only have date/times on Wednesday that have no conflicts at all. Remember that you can edit your submissions and be as flexible as possible.

Shall I open up some earlier dates and run the risk that someone gets injured after being drafted?

Opening up Thurs the 1st might help. But if people are going away for the weekend then Fri night they will probably be en route already.

If I do it, I'll go all the way back to 8/29.

Edit: Matter of fact, what the heck. Done.

Jolly Bill asked at whenisgood.net:

There is no option this year for 'good but not great' times? Doesn't really matter for my picks but surprised.

I didn't pay for a premium account this year (it's an annual subscription) because not enough people used that option last year to make it worthwhile.

Makes sense. Thanks!
