Random Topics and Conversations / Secret Santa 2017
« on: November 07, 2017, 11:08:23 PM »



Welcome everyone to my yearly tradition!  For those of you who are unfamiliar with this, every year since 2014 I have run a Secret Santa on the MFX (formerly EFK) boards.  We've received a robust turnout year after year, and I am excited to get things going again for this year!  This year (due to the dwindling numbers of active participants on those boards) we are EXPANDING to include the fine folks over here at ESPNSportsSims.net.  There are a LOT of familiar faces on the MFX side, so it is my hope that running this as a combined effort this year will allow us to enjoy the biggest Christmas Season yet!

How does it work?  I'm glad you asked!  It is real simple.  Simply post a reply that lets me know that you are in, and you will be added to the list!  I will then need some information from you PM'd to me.  Your real name and address, a link to an Amazon.com Wish List that you've created, and a simple blurb about things you'd like to get/not get (for example, "I love horror movies/please don't send me alcohol").  The reason for asking for both an Amazon Wish List AND a brief like/dislike list is because, in years past most people tended to rely on the Amazon Wish Lists, but some people REALLY enjoy going out into the world and picking out that perfect gift for themselves!

Of course if you were to have any questions, I am here to answer them.  For those of you who want to take a look at how things worked out in the past, or if you just want to reminisce, here are links to the 2016 and 2015 Secret Santa threads:

Rule Change Discussion Board / New Rule Proposal
« on: January 19, 2017, 09:34:20 PM »
I recently asked Talon if there were a rule in place for a team to kick in money towards the salary of a player that they trade away (which would help facilitate some deals).  He said that it is not allowed currently, so I want to propose it here.

To make it clearer, here is an example of how a trade would look:

Quote
TEAM A trades PLAYER (3 years, $5MM contract) to TEAM B for draft picks
TEAM A agrees to pay $2MM of PLAYER's salary for the rest of this season

What does everyone think?

As I have for the past several years now, I am organizing a Secret Santa over on the MFX boards.  I realize that some of you do not frequent those boards, but I wanted to extend the holiday cheer and invite any and all that wish to participate.  Come one, come all!

Kirk, if you are interested send me a PM, and we'll chat.

Mafia Games / Mafia - Night Zero
« on: September 28, 2016, 10:40:37 PM »
You all know how to play, so I won't waste my time putting up an elaborate rule-set (which will probably go unread by most).  Instead, here are some bullet points.
~ Night Talking is Allowed (EXCEPT FOR NIGHT ZERO)
~ I won't Mod Kill for activity/lurking....handle that shit yourselves
~ Days are 72 hours/Nights are 24 hours....I'll update as I'm able, according to my sleeping/working schedule
~ Vote and Unvote on separate lines
~ When you're dead, shut up....we got dead threads for your bah's and your bitchin'
~ Don't talk outside the thread
~ Role and character claiming/hinting are allowed.....AT A PRICE
~ Got a question?  The PM button is your friend

For those of you that don't frequent the MFX boards all that often, I'd like to let you all know that I am organizing the 2nd Annual Secret Santa over there.  Last year was really great.  If you want in, feel free to sign up.  We've got over a dozen people so far.

And Kirk, if you're interested let me know and I'll give you the details.

Random Topics and Conversations / Room for 1 more?
« on: August 03, 2014, 02:34:17 AM »
I don't want to add to the glut of sim games that are seemingly popping up everywhere but.....oh, who am I kidding?  I do want to!


Do we think that there is room for 1 more (wrestling based) sim?


Based on the FBL/NBL/FHL model, you'd be the General Manager of a wrestling team/club/dojo....whatever.  You'd hire a trainer, you'd scout your wrestlers, draft your team, just like we're all familiar with.  Once drafting/training is done, clubs would face off head to head with other clubs (similar to what the IBF was looking to do).  After the season, there'd be a Championship series of some sort.


I've been looking over sims, and have a general layout of how things would work in my head, but before I go any further with it, I want to gauge interest.  Lemme hear it guys.
