Wall Street Cycling / Re: The "WHAT WAS I THINKING?!" thread

Thanks to all those who responded via PM. It looks like indeed it was mostly a fluke that I ended up with 23 riders, as at least three other people intended to appear but were unexpectedly hindered.

However, I'm considering some additional measures to help us out in the future. My ideas, ordered from the easiest to the most effective one:
1. Group PM at 19h or 20h or 21h
2. Doodle before Grand Tours to find THE perfect deadline time
3. New rule that you can only participate in a given bidding if you placed at least one bid in it before noon. This would simply eliminate 21:50 vultures like myself. What's more, I think people could also start to open higher to have fewer opponents, and others might outbid early to make sure they guarantee a spot as opponent. The prices thus go up early and some in fact saturate at the final price hours in advance, so effectively 21:50 becomes much less important.
4. Recruit! I don't mean to brag, but I still think we designed it very elegantly. With the bidding timing and the tax and everything. Plus it really offers me great excitement to buy a guy in the evening and actively cheer for him the next afternoon. So a part of me is really dumbfounded why not more people join. Maybe I should interrogate them individually?

Not too late! What a story on day 1 of the 100th Giro  :doh:

Missed last 3 races including the Giro :soapbox: :soapbox: :soapbox:

That's not ideal indeed. Tonight was the biggest night of the season, and sadly only Tom and myself made it into the ring. We attempted to keep each other honest, but prices remained reasonable. I can already see that Bryan must have confused the deadline unfortunately, because of his late bids. Plus yourself coming slightly late, plus Davy going through some big things in his personal life, plus others who only show up occasionally anyway. Not good...

That leads us to some sort of crossroads. I must admit I'm still very excited about this particular league, and I believe it has potential for absolute greatness. Some questions though:

1. Is there anything about the scoring format you guys don't like?

2. Should I attempt to devise a better algorithm, where being online at 10pm isn't necessary?

3. Could I have done better? Group PM an hour or two before the deadline maybe?

One change triggered tonight: Tom and I quickly came to an agreement via PM that there should be no limit on how much you invest. This saved the game for everybody, as otherwise we'd both only tie our hands while prices were still insanely low. Without it, we managed to push each other into a decent region of roughly 300 per podium contenders. Should have been closer to 400 of course, but at least the game has not been broken tonight.

  • kidd5jersey: Yep. It was very special to win one last year. My grandfather was my baseball buddy. He passed away right before opening day. He promised he'd help Cubs win the series as our 'Angel in the Outfield.' Ironically enough, his name was Al too.

  • Billy: @fantasyboi TT extensions are their highest ranking at their position over the past 2 years. It is taken by their total fantasy points scored for the entire season (so someone who missed a week or 2 due to injury might be lower than his average per week shows)
    Today at 12:52:51 AM
  • fantasyboi: i know that. im asking if the contract value is AAV or total contract? im pretty sure its AAV
    Today at 12:58:59 AM
  • Billy: The contract value you get from extensions is the yearly contract. So if they rank #1 at QB they get a $15m per year extension. Then because the salary is greater than $9.9m, they get a max of 5 year deal
