I'll do one eventually. I have a few themes I think could be quirky and might work.

It's a matter of actually pulling them off though

If we're going to schedule it, I don't think the requirement of posting it on the actual game day is needed. A lot of people aren't going to be able to post it between 12AM to 12PM the day of, it's not always feasible if someone has work or school, for example.

I think we should allow people to post it earlier if he's been scheduled to do it.

Awwww but I like Soli's Shortside

There's a lot of great artists on here but I'd happily make a few if they don't all get booked.

Absolutely!
If it really matters a mod can even lock it until midnight

Soli is just getting lazy to put up the GDT every third game like in the past. LOL.

I like this idea though. I know a few times, we had 3 GDT's in one last year because a few people did some hard work on a cool theme for the game. This way, it would avoid all that hard work to go to waste!

This is a great idea.

Another possible benefit of doing this is that if a poster knows they will be doing a GDT and on what date, it leaves it wide open for other posters who aren't doing it to put in suggestions and maybe even technical help/photoshop help.

There definitely needs to be a deadline for when a GDT should be up. I don't mind it going up the day before, but it should be locked up prior to the actual day of and opened up at midnight.

Glad to see this up. Should make things easier on those that are creating the GDTs.....plus it helps Soli know when one is needed.

I'd be down to do a couple a month to fill in the holes....so if no one wants the Pens game, pencil me in!

I agree. It should have to be up by noon on game day, but if someone needs to post it a few hours early, that's no big deal imo.

I assume for games with no takers we'll stick to the freeforall? Maybe with the previous GDT maker having first shot if the team won?

Ok, I got my concept and it's reasonably solid. Sign me up for the Caps game on the 14th.

I think the midnight time could be relaxed a bit. Other team boards allow their GDT's up to a day in advance sometimes. Not to say this is the standard that we should be compared to, but when I used to make a lot of GDTs, if I had to sleep early the night before, and then had to leave for work or school in the morning the next day, it would basically kill any chance of making the GDT for that game.

Some people who are interested in doing a GDT and are capable of doing them just won't be available to post it during that 12 hour window.

I'm fine with it, but in keeping with tradition, we'll lock it up and re-open it at midnight.

I'm just doing things by the book... the moderator manual filled with crudely drawn genitalia you left for me. It's come in handy, even the moderating part occasionally.
