View Poll Results: How much will the Planet be affected by during the draft?
Little or none: the Planet will survive intact and thrive. 4 6.90%
A little: perhaps some "sluggishness" and a crash or two. 6 10.34%
Some: access will be hit 'n miss....Frazod will blow a gasket when we draft a tweener/project saftey and he can't vent. 13 22.41%
A lot; posting and browsing will be disrupted in a major way....some CP members may actually get off their computers and get a life. 21 36.21%
Totally--it will be an epic meltdown: we'll be spending the next three weeks as "refugees" at TJ's place over at the Mange... 12 20.69%
Who cares....GAZ and go bo are gonna be special guests on ESPN coverage of the draft, so we are covered. 2 3.45%
Voters: 58. You may not vote on this poll

Will ChiefsPlanet Survive the 2005 Draft?

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?

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....

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.

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.

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.



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.

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...
