    Well essentially the previous season champ will get in i.e. nah son, because they have such a substantial amount of points.

    but if the spurs couldnt compete this year, then they wouldnt have a play off position

    you should have to earn your shot in the playoffs each season, otherwise it shouldnt be called the playoffs

    The Spurs or sports have nothing to do with an online writing league.

    You can't use that as justification because of this.

    In the Spurs case, every team competes every year, and there is no signing in and out.

    Thus every team has a season which they are ranked for playoffs.

    If the teams in the play offs could sign in and out, and sometime no showed and shit then it would correlate to this league.

    But essentially by allowing past top competitors to come back based off points you cut the lack of no shows in the bottom part of the 16 and keep competition great.

    Otherwise you have whatever competitors you have this season against themselves which may not be all that entertaining and also cause for mass no shows in the bottom 16 (look at this week).

    At the end of the day, I am just showing an example of how it helps. I understand your "it shouldn't carry over" spill. But to me it's more successful carried over.

    It also gives power rankings to everyone from every season.

    Q - I don't plan to quit .. and I expect what we get from GL? .. he is one lowly opinion that I don't cater to .. but .. if other people feel someone else should be or would do better as a mod of the league .. I wouldn't kick up a fuss about going back to a standard member .. I like this league .. and if me being a mod is felt to be 'ruining' it .. then shit .. I'll gladly give up the mod balls ..

    but jook, this began in comparison to the NCAA tournament, so how can you say that there is no room for comparison between the structure of this league and sports?

    oh and lucy, sex sells and rape/sex are easy to write for me so when im pressed for time its the quickiest way for me to finish a verse, and that's the honest truth

    I stated the playoffs would be seeded as the NCAA is structured.

    Which it will still be seeded (unless there is something I don't know) with or without carried over records correct?

    yes sir

    i still feel as though the carrying over of points is uneccesary, the carrying over of records works well but the points as pertained to the playoffs should be seasonally recorded, we can also keep a cumulative record for the archives but if the same 16 people participate in the playoffs each season it allows little motivation to the new participants and those struggling to win a title and it leaves those that may have done exceptionally well in one season easy shoe ins thus enabling the better writers to perform less, by that i mean TR and others have chosen not to compete this season because they know they will make it to the playoffs while these other writers battle it out for nothing because they won't, its rather redundant and very contradictory to refer to the tournament as a playoff if this is, in fact, the formula chosen

    just my view on it, i mean, i feel you as far as no shows and entertainment or whatever, but its still a bit nonsensical when you think about it, and also it has much to do with sports being that it is structured to reflect the structure of sports, and not only sports but mostly all tournaments with a season leading up to that specific tournament are decided by that respective season, then maybe a best of the best would contain all of the heads with the most cumulative points

    We can debate on the validity of carrying points over all day.

    But what it comes down to is 2 mods don't want the points to be carried over and 1 does.

    Pretty clear cut to me.

    P.s. Golf is ran the exact way I am talking about running the league. But who watches golf lol.

    On the motivation part you mentioned for newbies, well I'm not a fan of newbies anyhow so I am a bit bias.

    But nothing would be more motivating to me as a newbie than to have to work my ass to get to battle all the legends from prior seasons, rather than wack ass other newbies who win 3 or 4 battles and get a playoff birth.

    Just my opinion.

    true

    but the only reason the good heads sign out is to preserve their play off spots, most that actually do contend during the season will opt to use different names and those like TR who catch a loss quickly sign out so as not to disrupt their pretty record

    hopefully without carrying over, it will ensure that people stay and compete, and those who dont wish to will be weeded out for the better of the league anyway

    it works both ways, carrying over enables the good heads to do less, i would like to see the celtics and hawks work equally as hard each year regardless of which makes the playoffs or not

    and moreso, good writers fall off

    i say we compare the two rankings and decide

    also, i say we keep track of cumulative records for each season and well as seasonal and combined and things of that nature, whatdya say numbers guy?

    Lol see to me that's exactly what I thought carrying over points would do.

    Since points are essentially a direct product of your record.

    But then again maybe I am misunderstanding what you mean. Let me know a litte more.

    See Q, I understand exactly where you are coming from. You're looking at it from a competitors point of view which is "if I bust my ass all season to post verses to make playoffs why should someone get to go who didn't do shit". That is a great argument. I am just looking at it from a general success point of view. But I do understand both sides, trust me. I've been there a time or two.

    GL thanks for the support.
