It's going to get all-starry!
Also, I'm fairly new to this but think I get the general gist of it. Is there a rules/guidelines thread I can take a look at.

The terrible three are back:
Newsy, Lester, and Frank are coming. Get ready for the best NHA team you'll ever see!

But....with an overload of GMs this year apparently, how do you feel about a co-GM papershoes? You never make picks on time and the last two drafts you've had a multiple pick overload late. Again, I mean this in the best way possible. I just feel that you'd be a very good candidate for a co-GM....
no offense taken (and, thanks for the good words vanislander)...

if there is an excess of gm's this year, i'd certainly be keen on co-gm'ing. hopefully any co-gm would be interested in keeping the thistle name going (it would be weird to be in an atd now as a different team)...

I would be very much against having more than 32 teams. The 40-teams disaster draft we had not long ago still taste bitter to me.

The elegant (and equal) nature of having eight divisions at four teams per division as a new structure pretty much assures that 32 should be the maximum this time around!

Is it just me or, by looking at the list of teams, papershoes and DemonsOnIce96 should team up?

So when is the targeted start date for this? I can see us having all 32 teams ready later this week, maybe run the lottery next weekend and then have a week for discussing the rules or what not and start the draft anytime between the 19th and 22nd. Looking forward to getting this started.

It is one of the ugliest team logo I have ever saw in my life, and I shiver just by the single thought of having the dishonor of looking at it every time I scroll through the roster page.

So, any objections to having a DEADLINE TO JOIN DATE of FRIDAY, JANUARY 11th?

It helps recruitment to have a set date. Then spitfire11 can be asked to do his traditional draw-names-from-a-hat trick on the weekend.

The official ATD start date would then be Friday, January 18th at 12 noon eastern time.

Can I PM this to everyone?

That might not be enough time to finalize the rules if certain options win the trading poll.

Also, if no trades wins, one's draft spot becomes more important. I would then be in favor of your old idea of having people give preferences for where they would start.

Invites have been sent to all of these via PM. Did I miss any obvious ATD veterans who ought to be invited? If so, invite them.

I don't think we need a deadline to join. It's obvious to me that we will obtain 32 teams.
