Why don't vets use the DTKW forum?


Well to be honest...... this year I seem to have about 10% of the patience I usually have, so I'd imagine I'd answer a lot of the DTKW posts with "cool story bro" O:-)

And I don't usually post my trades over there, because I'm not interested in someone I've never heard of basically saying "Yes, help with mine?" :-b :-b ........."Yes, help with mine" is about as helpful to me as answering my post by trying to sell me Louis Vuitton wallets and Juicy Couture :-b :-b :-b

i've always thought that this section here, could be broken into five simple forums.

* Roster Questions: "Trade, Waivers, Start, Bench, Keeper, Analyze, Draft,"
* Leftovers: "Injuries, Commisioners Corner, Cheering, venting"
* Classifieds:
* Minors:
* Beginners: "FAQ"

I think that's a good idea.....maybe even combine minors with leftovers, afterall the minor league discussion usually ends up affecting leftovers anyway when the prospects are nearing a call up.

I can help you get a good price on jerseys, if you need an answer to your question. MLB, NBA, NHL, NFL, sadly no foot...erm, soccer.

You can also put Predictions in Leftovers. That way, player threads can be bumped up during the season when opinions are needed over player developments during the year.

I believe there were less than 100 members here when I joined so I'm certainly a vet and I do still post in the DTKW. Just like the leftover forum tho, I only post when I feel I have something helpful to add. That's why in relation to the time I've been a member, my post totals are low. That despite being in the Cafe nearly everyday. Often numerous times a day. Years ago the DTKW forum was very valuable, loaded with thought out insight to difficult trade questions from the top members on-board. IMO the primary reason it is now nearly worthless is the whole 'whir' phenomenon. Why would anyone even want the opinions of others responding with little forethought because they either felt obligated or they needed to 'whir' to get answers to their own questions? :-/

I almost never, ever browse the Cafe by forum specific.

I use "view new post" tab for current topics and comment on the ones I find interesting.

When I want to check a thread that I responded to, I hit view my posts.

Works like a charm.

But then I'd have to wade through all those DTKW questions... :-D

commissioners corner should be one thread, stickied to leftovers. just like the closers thread.

i never venture that far from leftovers. i never go to commish corner. but, id probably be likely to click the thread if it got a hit in leftovers. i can't explain it, but its just the way it is. id probably even answer a few questions in there.


Agree completely. ;-D

+2
commish forum is pretty much ignored.
a sticky in leftovers is a great idea.

+ 1000, so many useless forums on here, it's annoying to scroll down past them to Leftovers.
