So um....things have to change for next season.

I realize this is just a fun game, but if no thread is posted by Vito or someone else, there should be no "post in the prior round" deal. I don't even look at it after the game ends.

I hear your point BZK, that's why I made a thread last game. But if you know your pick got a point in the previous game, I don't see why it's difficult to post in the previous game's thread if one hasn't been made yet. It is the most logical place to put your pick otherwise. It's not like the thread wasn't on the first page, and in fact it got bumped to the top of the page when others posted, giving you a reminder to post. People do it all the time if someone won't be on again before a game and the thread hasn't been made, and then Vito will write in your post when he makes the new page. It isn't ideal, but we can't count on Vito making a thread for every game and nobody knows if he isn't going to be on. I think I'm the first person to take the initiative besides him. But if you don't want to post in the previous game's thread, I guess you can take the initiative yourself and create the thread for the next game.

My bad guys. I try to get the newest Survivor thread up before every game but it can be difficult sometimes with back-to-back games, especially those Friday-Saturday ones, and those random afternoon games.

BZK's right though, there really needs to be a rule implemented for the times when there isn't a new Survivor thread ready in time for a game day.

Fifa's point is valid, some people do use the old thread to post a new selection which is definitely the easiest way to keep the game going. However, because that really isn't the official method of making a new selection it's tough to penalize someone for not doing that.

Perhaps we should set a rule stating somthing like: If a Survivor thread isn't posted at least 5 hrs before puck drop on a game day, all selections shall be made in the most recent Survivor thread.

Or maybe some of you guys have some better ideas on this or maybe even on any new Survivor rules or alterations to current ones.

That seems good to me. Either that, or alternatively, if you don't make the thread at least 5 hours before puck drop, somebody else should make the thread. Either way works for me. You do such a great job in general though getting it done, for it to only a couple times a year is more than acceptable. Thanks
