I went to last year's league page and tried to find the emails of those we still haven't heard from. Only 3 of the 6 were not hidden - Jags, Aqua, and Free. I sent them emails, so hopefully we can hear from them soon.

It's probably a fair assumption that Dave is not coming back as he went MIA after only a few weeks into the season. Oopah and Matt are the other two, and Oopah hasn't logged in about 9 months. I'd say at the very least, we'll need two replacements, so if anyone has anyone in mind that may want to take over a team, let us know.

Hey guys,

I'm definitely interested in continuing as a GM, but as I stated earlier I won't be able to continue handling commissoner duties. I'm looking forward to another competitive season though. ;-D

That's great to hear guys. I'd like to try to find a way to make things more active also, but I'm not sure what we can do to facilitate that. I proposed moving to H2H the last few seasons (because IMO they encourage more participation), but most people were vehemently against it.

Well, at this point, we're still down 4 owners, not hearing from Matt, Aqua, Oopah or Dave. Matt and Aqua have logged in here since I've posted/sent PMs, so I'm not sure why they haven't replied. Hopefully we hear from them soon.

Also, although I've been trying to be the one to get things going, as we get closer to the season, the amount of free time I'll have will continue to diminish. I'd be all for being a co-commish, but I'd prefer if 1-2 other people would share those responsibilities.

I'll help any way I can too. I can't imagine there's too much work to do, since we can just copy the format of last year, and once we have the results we can just upload them onto Yahoo. We should definitely set a schedule though and start recruiting replacement owners. Like Fade has mentioned, we'll need at least two.

Thanks for the help guys. And Jus, you're right that there isn't a ton to do, but with the schedule I keep, where I will have the hardest trouble is making sure that normal threads stay updated, like draft results, players taken, new round threads, etc. I just don't want to cause any delays or bad picks.

Also, Matt_Domsic sent me a PM and said he's coming back so only 3 unknowns left. If anyone has Aqua in another league, or can get ahold of him some other way, see if you can get an answer from him.

I can help out in keeping some things updated if needed. Feb-April with the worst time at work for me, so I don't get on as much as I'd like to, but I can do what's needed if it's, well, needed. :-b

Posted in the Holics forum re: the need for replacements. The only team I've posted as of yet is Dave Knight's. Oopah was fairly active in managing his team, so I don't want to jump the gun with him. He's not around the Cafe often in general, so I'll give him a few more days until I put his team up too. Also, although we haven't gotten a hold of Aqua yet, I'm going to assume he wants to defend his title.
