Past drafts have been nutty around here, and posting and lurking have been disrupted by the traffic.

Given the continued growth and popularity of this place, coupled with sluggishness and "outages" that are already showing up already, what's your prediction? :shrug:

Poll Forthcoming.

I'm not predicting a meltdown, but I suspect access will be intermitent and limited for most of the weekend....unless Kyle and Phil have some magic up their sleeves.... :hmmm:

I predict anywhere from 75-150 posts from myself on draft day. Not taking any bets on a Chiefsplanet implosion.

I predict the server is down by 11:04 a.m. on Selection Saturday. Now if we lock the planet down so just member can post that might move it back a couple of hours, due to all the Surtain watch threads.

I hope that's in the works, at least. :thumb:

It will crash multiple times.

Geez, even this morning I had trouble getting on a couple of times.

It's time for the Planet to take donations from it's members and non-members. I'll be happy to support any upgrades with a few of Rain Man's monies.

I predict not only a total implosion of the server but also a total implosion amongst the general membership which will be characterized by at least one car jacking, one self-inflicted gunshot wound and one arrest for drunk and disorderly.

we had like 12 threads and 40 pages about this...


apparently it's NOT a money issue

i have purposely not paid as much attention to the nfl draft this year because i won't know as much and therefore won't be as disappointed when the chiefs freak out and draft some dweeb 3 rounds early.


sort of a philfree "ignorance is bliss" method of fanship. :p



i hope it works better for me this draft.

I've logged on from computers without my cookies....and gotten on as a guest recently.

My understanding was that was a temporary arrangement; now we are back to open access, I think. :hmmm:

Given the performance of ChiefsPlanet over the past couple of weeks, I can't imagine any way we'll get though draft day without major downtime, unless something changes between now and then...

Yup, which is why I posted this....

What's the plan, guys? :)

It will implode when Carl trades down out of the first for two 5th round picks, uses the 2nd rounder for a WR, and then gets an athletic safety in the 3rd.

We definitely need to lock it down to posting members only that day. Phil, you watching?

Nah, he'll change it up this year....and pick up an athletic "tweener" at LB/DE.....but trade down to do that too.

It will crash harder than Spinks against Tyson. A person will have a better chance of hitting the powerball numbers than getting through after the first round pick.

What about shutting down CP from 5 min before the Chiefs are on the clock till 1/2 hour after?

one arrest for drunk and disorderly.

That's not really all that different from any of my other Saturdays.

I want to know what our chances are exactly, would you say that the odds someone could get thru just after the Chiefs first round pick are greater than say Gochiefs getting some 'tang?

Unless? Kyle has promised we'll be working on a new database by Saturday. It's something I've been on him about for a while.

New database by Saturday and a complete revamp of ChiefsPlanet as you know it by the end of Training Camp. You won't even recognize the place.

I won't be here helping to slow it down, though I am sure the Planet will have numerous "Server Too Busy" Messages displayed. My Great Aunt passed away then end of Feb and was creamated. The family has put off the memorial service until the weekend of the NFL Draft. Hopefully I will find a computer someplace where I can at least see who we are drafting thoughout the day - no point going the whole day without being dissapointed.

Yes whoman69, the odds of getting through are greater than gochiefs knocking off some stray from a human female, but about the same odds as getting struck by a meteorite and lightning at the same time. It's doubtful the Planet will survive the impending doom of traffic that Saturday is sure to bring.

Thanks for the good news; I must have missed the database by Saturday part before.... :thumb:
