FF2012: Official GWJFFL 2012 signup and discussion thread

This looks like it’s going to be a great year in the GWJFFL.
I'd like to reclaim my spot in GWJFFL - Gold and I'd like to be in GWJFFL - Platinum
Also, this looks like it’s going to be a great year in the GWJFFL.

Returning for:

GWJFFLK

Also changing my mind and sticking it out with my other team in:

GWJFFL - Silver

Platinum only in the unlikely event that 12 others aren't interested.

We're currently at 15 people willing to join the pay league so you're safe.

Registration log updated with today's additions. Make sure I got yours right.

This looks like it's going to be a really sh*tty year in the GWJFFL....................for everyone playing against me

Guess who's back, back again.
Kush is back, tell a friend.

I was in Silver League, and I'm not sure if I stay or if I move up. I'm in for another year, where ever you want to put me.

I'd like to (This looks like it’s going to be a great year in the GWJFFL ) reclaim my spot (This looks like it’s going to be a great year in the GWJFFL ) in GWJFFL - Bronze (This looks like it’s going to be a great year in the GWJFFL).

Can someone from the Steam group shoot me an invite please? Link is in sig.

Invite for me as well? See sig below. Thanks!

I'd like to keep my spot in GWJFFLK and be in for GWJFFLD. If you end up allowing 3 leagues, I'd like to return to GWJFFL Silver.

This looks like it’s going to be a great year in the GWJFFL. I’d like to reclaim my spot in

GWJFFK

and be considered for

GWJFFLD

Truthfully, if I get into the Dynasty league, I'd be fine with giving up my spot in the keeper league. I've always been more of a 1 league guy.

Do I even still have a spot after last year's debacle?

Stupid double post.

If you're referring to GWJFFLK, then the answer is yes. I don't see you having a team in the "regular" tiers, though.

This looks like it’s going to be another Iridium-winning year in the GWJFFL. I’d like to reclaim my spot in

GWJFFL Silver

and be considered for

GWJFFLD or GWJFFLK

Dynasty would be 1st choice.

I'd also like an invite to the Steam group. Thanks!

I'm a newcomer to the league but I would like to join:

GWJFFL - Bronze

though I’m really interested in stepping up to

GWJFFL - Platinum

If there is space available, I'd also like to join:

GWJFFLK

Yeah, I gave up that spot year before last. I didn't realize there might be a seperate forum for it...

So are you coming back to K or no? I'm also not sure by your comment if you want back in to the standard league, either.

So Grump...I'm clicking on the links in your sig and see every league filled except the Dynasty league. Does that mean I won't be participating this year?

I am all signed up on fleaflicker. Do I wait for an invite to one of them or do I send a request somewhere on the website?

I would like to get in on this here party.

GWJFF1,2,3 Whatever is open I'd love to get in here.

The Dynasty league as well...if there is space.

Thanks

I'd like to reclaim my spot in GWJFFL Bronze.

Not really sure I'm ready yet to step up to a Keeper league.

No. I haven't yet kicked out those people who've not returned. They still have another couple days. That's the whole point of the 08/08 deadline. On 08/09, I'll drop those who've not returned and start offering folks the opportunity to move up to fill the gaps as appropriate.

Your best course of action is to go to the registration log and click the various tabs to see who has re-registered and who hasn't. As you'll see, there are 10 players from last year that have not yet put in an appearance in this thread.

You will be contacted.

The registration log (and corresponding tabs) should be up-to-date as of this post. Please be sure to verify that I have logged your interest accurately.

As Grumps Chumps took last place in the Standard - Gold league last year and My Grumps took First place in Standard - Silver, they switch places in leagues next year

Of course, that may be moot as he does not have to be a participating commish of each league this year, but still, hilarious.

As mentioned up-thread, under the 2011 rules, commissioner-owned teams were not eligible for either promotion or relegation. This is significant because, given the rules under which we were operating, the 3rd/4th place game between Boogle and Rat Boy in Silver held increased significance because they knew going into the game that the winner would be eligible for promotion. Were I to promote myself anyway, technically, the 3rd place team would not be eligible. (Note: Except for the whole "You can't have two teams in the same tier," thing, I technically wouldn't have to relegate myself, either, as long as cybardian and gbuchold remain absent through Wednesday.)

Obviously, I've already talked about this, but I'm doing it again to highlight the fact that the rules have changed this year given the new feature at Fleaflicker which allows me to commish a league without owning a team in it. As such, I'll be just as eligible for relegation (or promotion) as anyone else.

Edit: In practical terms, this means that promotion will be handled as follows. (Note: This is pretty much the way it's been done every year.)
1. Anyone not re-registered by 11:59:59pm Wednesday will be dropped from the roles. They, like everyone else, are still eligible to sign up through 8/20 but they'll start at the bottom of the waiting list, just like everyone else.
2. The open slots will be filled according to the promotion rules. Moving up is optional so I'll contact each of the relevant individuals to confirm their desire to do so.
3. If there remain any players who are eligible for (and desire) promotion and there are no slots that came available through attrition, the relegation rules will be implemented.

The only difference this year is that I'll be dropping my "extra" teams out of Silver and Bronze, freeing up two more spaces for rookies. Also, for those that are wondering, I'll be shifting folks up into Platinum (if they've indicated an interest in doing so) after all of the above is sorted out since priority access to Platinum is based on this year's starting rank.

Sorry, I meant to say they SHOULD switch places next year, turning my statement into the joke it was meant to be :). And since you are dropping your Silver and Bronze teams, I think that should make My Grumps the only Grumpicus team left in the Standard leagues instead of Grumps Chumps.

I just like it because of the poetic in-fighting of it all.

Does that mean a 3rd team gets promoted from Bronze to Silver from last season's finish?

As it is right now, there will be 4 teams moving up, even without my dropping.

Attrition > Relegation.

I will be keeping my team in GWJFFL - Silver please

If you need more for platinum I will step up but it appears you have plenty of interest from those seeded above me

Hey Grump, I got a note saying I had 48 hours to "re-enlist" on fleaflicker, but I am not sure exactly what you meant there -- you mean beyond what i've done here, tossing my name and future money into the pot?

As you are on the registration log, I believe you are good to go.
