Last year, we had a very prominent cafe member join our league, but because that cafe member also joined 13 other leagues, he was not as active as we wanted him to be. I'm sure he would be the first to admit that. I'm not going to say his name, but it starts with "P" and rhymes with "edantic."
However, I will be sticking with the post count rule for these reasons,
1. It's a reward to those players who have contributed to the cafe.
2. I really have no way of judging the skill level of those who enter the league. I'm just going under the assumption that those with more posts here at the cafe have been exposed to more fantasy baseball than those who have less posts. Of course there will be exceptions but I have no real way of knowing. I'm suspicious enough not to trust people who say they are good without any kind of proof. And no, winning all 4 of your yahoo public leagues is not good enough proof.
3. It's to prevent possible collusion. I think there is a lot more cheating going on than a lot of people know. I would rather not give someone the opportunity to make a couple of fake accounts so they could collude in my league.
4. Bragging rights are just more meaningful when you beat that regular from the cafe rather than that 1-post new guy.
It's debateable whether or not this is a fair system. If I had my way, I would come up with a questionnaire and judge each applicant based on their answers. But then I may introduce my own personal biases into the equation.
One thing I can promise is that if you miss the cut for this year and wait on a list until next year to join, I can't turn down that kind of dedication.
