Bear, is there a chance the number on a team can change? It's currently set to 7.


This from Robert's initial post: " . . . Captains of resurrected teams should be aware that depending on how many DPCers sign up for this iteration of DPL, teams may end up smaller than they were last time around. If you don't HAVE a team but want to be ON one, register in the Free Agent pool. "

Does that help, 21_F.gif Kelli?

That part is not working yet, apparently. We're supposed to work it out "on paper" while they work it out "online" so we can get folks out of the pool.

It's not you... it's them. Ha!

I just put my name in the free agent pool and plan on renuing my membership if I get picked up by anyone or if my old team gets resurrected. I was excited to get the email announcement.

We'll work that out as we go forward. I would *guess* that we will end up with a 5-player team limit, but that's just a guess. That would be 24 full teams. 120 players. If we get like 24 "extra" players, we'd have 6-player teams. The next step up from 24 teams is 48, which would be 240 players in 5-player teams or 192 players in 4-player teams.

There are a lot of permutations to be figured out, all depending on the turnout for this season.

Yay! I'll be signing up as a free agent (can't resurrect old teams as a non-member, it seems).

For some reason, Gmail sorted the DPL email as spam. I hope it doesn't mean that a lot of people will miss the invitation?

I also did not receive the email. I only saw it when Ken posted a message on the Facebook page....

This is such an temptation...
06/07/2018 06:58:04 AM · #35
Yea, my email also went to spam.
06/07/2018 07:19:48 AM · #36
Mine went to SPAM too - though I have no problem with the weekly update emails. Guess something triggered it to go in the SPAM folder

Same here.

Glad to see this back. DPL, and the TPL before it, were the two things that really made a difference to me being here or not, mainly because of the folks I participated with. I'm back for it/because of it and we're hoping the band can stay together.

I totally understand the numbers thing, but given the length of the season and past experience I would much rather see fewer teams (i.e. keep it at 24) with more participants than to grow to more teams with fewer. We had 24 teams of 9 last time and I know some teams fizzled even then. Just my 2 cents.

Yep, me too.

found mine in the spam folder. but i have it :)

If so many people are not getting the announcement why don't you try sending it again?
06/07/2018 09:21:45 AM · #43
It appears that some of my former teammates have already been picked up by other teams. So, I'm available and open to the highest bidder!
06/07/2018 09:22:34 AM · #44
43 Free Agents, 4 Teams (2 finalized).

So if I wanted to create a team I would go to the free agent list, check 5 players, then what? I don't see an invite. There's a button to create the team, but not one to actually ask their permission. Do I do that first individually, I guess?

At the top of the list it says:

If you are interested in inviting any of these users to your team, simply check off the box beside their username and use the Invite button below.

The "invite button" is actually something along the lines of ... these people have been selected for my team.

1. Create Team
2. Invite Players by filling in their names and clicking to configure the team, then a box appears to send invitation emails.
3. Team fills automatically as players accept invitations
4. Players invited do NOT have to be on the Free Agent list.

Suggestion: if teams are going to be smaller, ie 5, to get to 24 teams, best to decide that early before a lot of 7-person trans are already formed and then will have to cut folks. :)
