New GM's [Welcome, Advice, and Placement]
« on: May 20, 2018, 10:39:47 AM »
First of all to all our new GMs, Welcome to the site.

Hopefully you guys will enjoy our game and become a part of the HIFL community for seasons to come, and whether you're here for one season or 20, I look forward to the fun we'll all have here.

The advice I have to offer is simple.  Take your time, double-check your post before you hit send, and read the rules/updates and other relevant threads.  Some of the rules are later updated in future posts and I know it can be confusing, so if you have a question reach out to me or anyone else on the boards and ask.

Now, when it comes to teams, currently we have 5 mod-controlled teams.

Charlotte, St. Louis, Music City, Tombstone, and Cleveland.

Now, to determine which Gm's will land where initially (each team has their own traits/qualities they are looking for in a new hire), I'm going to do something different than usual.    In seasons past, everyone would just begin to interview in the team threads where they are interested in joining, however I'm going to change things up this time.  Think of it as a "GM Combine" of sorts.  I'll have some universal tasks for each prospective GM to complete and send to me via PM.  After I read through everyone's responses, I'll have the available teams that are interested in each GM reach out and offer a job.

Some GM's may receive more than one offer.  If you are playing this game because of one teams location/mascot/etc you're playing for the wrong reason, so hopefully you're all open to taking whatever job is available, as you can change the fortunes of a franchise rather quickly in this universe.

I'll leave this thread unlocked for the new GM's to introduce themselves and/or ask questions, as well as leaving it open for our current batch of guys to provide their own welcomes, advice, and comments.

Welcome to the show!
