Ehy Guys,
where are the TPLs :) last time I had real fun.

I think they still have it I remember them starting it a few months after I joined last year like in may or june but but someone else can confirm it.
That was really fun but this year I won't be able to participate :-((

To early...but then it's when the spirit moves them so there's really no date start. But of late we've done it during the summer months when the pressures of life are "easier"....pfffftttt!!!

I think we have to remember that all those organizers are volunteers.
Last year they were: 21.gif Dr.Confuser, 21.gif MAK, 21.gif Damon, 21.gif hajeka, 21.gif Cory and 31_N.gif epsi.
It's a ton of work for the organizers and last year they did a fantastic job.

I'm not sure, but I think some of these people have moved on.

In 2015, it's likely that some new folks are going to have to step forward to run a TPL if we want one.

Right. It's a grass-roots thing, and 21.gif the_rkp's question about it may be the first seed.

I'll add a seed too.
03/20/2015 12:41:25 PM · #7
I'll plant one too! It was a lot of fun and a great learning experience.

GOOD NEWS!

I've been talking to Langdon and he is going to re-implement the official DPL, to start a new season in mid-May or the very beginning of June. This means the scoring and so forth will be done seamlessly on-site, team members will be locked out from voting on each others' images, and, if I'm not mistaken, there will be private forum threads for the members of each team.

We have some details to work out, but it is going to happen and soon. We'll need to finalize how teams will be chosen, how big they'll be, etc etc. I imagine we'll start a thread on this soon. We need to take a realistic look at expected participation levels in order to determine how many shooters on a team and so forth.

I'm still in the Free Agent Pool.

After kickin' butt and winning the championship with Neil, Shannon, Shane, Kyle and George last summer, I'm going out on top and retiring from TPL. You can all breath easier now.

Thanks for confirming this Bear, I had hoped that this was going to be implemented again into the site and I am delighted to see that it has been. I think, although some may beg to dither, that this will be a great benefit to the site and might even boost participation regularity.

Now that the living legend 21.gif LN13 has bailed out too, us mortals stand a chance now as well.

I was a little too new and got caught up in myself over, um, let's say "voting patterns and irregularities". While I'm still not happy with them, I'm over it and provided my job description doesn't change I plan on being a far better participant this time around.

That's great news Bear (and thanks Langdon). DPL was a great seamless way to handle the league.

Not that you asked, but my two cents is that it would be cool if teams could be assigned based on recent scoring averages or a draft instituted or some other way developed to try to even out the talent to make the league more competitive. I mean its one thing for LeBron to go home again and try to form a superteam for the NBA, but this is DPC. Then again, since 21.gif LN13 bowed out maybe that's not such a big issue over here. :-)

I would not miss the next iteration of the DPL for anything!
03/20/2015 03:07:36 PM · #17
That is great news!!! I know I had a few issues with voting and trying to remember what photos were my team members, having that DPL will be really really helpful!

Great News!!

Is there someplace on the site that explains how the side challenges work? I remember seeing them discussed in the past, but don't know the details.

Pretty much you just come up with an idea for a side challenge and create a new thread (in that section) describing it in the first post. Other than complying with the site's TOS you can set "how it works" and whatever subject and "rules" (if any) you want.

Happy to start this post and really happy for the news. Can't wait to partecipate to DPL :)

We will start a thread on this when we get our ducks in a row.
03/20/2015 09:34:26 PM · #24
I'd be in. Would even renew my membership for it.
