One reason not to require the two rookies to co-GM at this point is that nobody told them right away when they tried to sign up. Maybe we should have, but we didn't.

I'm honored to say that I will be joining the Ottawa Senators management team. I'd like to thank overpass for this opportunity, and am eager to see what it's like in the front office. I'd like to thank everyone in the Senators organization for their patience and guidance, both in getting to this point and in the future. I hope to continue the Senators tradition of success and commitment to our fans and the great city of Ottawa.

Darth Yoda is in and would be willing to take on a co-GM.

Haven't heard back from Demons yet.

While I certainly don't blame a first time GM for wanting to stay as far away from the rules discussion as possible, he hasn't signed onto hfboards for 6 days.

Give him a little while though; I didn't PM him until last night.

Oh the draft hasn't started yet so I will give him some slack , but not login in for 6 consecutive days on the site is not a good sign for a rookie GM without co-gm in general.The draft could've started without him knowing it.

Regardless of everything else, I think a rookie GM without a co-GM who misses his 1st round pick gets bumped when there's a waiting list. That's a long way from happening though.

I am concerned about a rookie GM with only 104 posts on hfboards who has never posted in the history section, though.

This is why we should have maintained the rookie=co-gm rules , with possible exceptions if the poster is very well known in another part of the site as being a regular who will log in regularly.

Either way this isn't a big problem for the moment.

Just another reason it was premature to do that draft order

Heh, seriously though, I don't see any way we can keep that draft order now, not with the number of GMs questioning its validity.

Why don't you look the board every two/three days to see how things go? I'm sure you can find 2 minutes every 72 hours, no?

arrbez hasn't claimed a spot and said he'd be offline for long periods, so I think we're done waiting for him. He wants a co-GM anyway, so might as well fill the spots and let him choose his team later.

So the question is:

DemonsOnIce96? Signed up first. 104 posts, none on the history board, hasn't been online in a week, didn't respond to my PM, but might be waiting until the Sat start of the season to sign back in.

or

BubbaBoot? Signed up late. 7000+ posts, many on the history board. Been posting here even after told the draft was full.

I hate to bump someone who signed up first, but I know who better fits the profile of a reliable GM.

Both arrbez and Darth Yoda have CONFIRMED interest in having a team (though indeed arrbez as co-GM). Why not let them headman the last two teams and if DemonsOnIce96 or BubbaBoot show up they could co-GM with one of them.

All we would need then is a team name from arrbez, and it'll likely be Inglewood Jacks (I'd bet on it!).

we posted at exactly the same time, lol.

The solution now is for arrbez to co-GM with Bubba

How about PMing both of them and the first to reply, gets. The one who signed up first has been AWOL, not logged on, not responding to PMs, not reading posts inquiring about him either (so he's not lurking and reading the planning thread - simply not at all involved).

I suspect Bubba will PM you quickly since he has logged on each of the last three days (and I've answered questions of his via PM - seems darn eager and active).
