DraftPlanet is not closed.

Draft discussion is now encouraged in the Lounge. This format has been followed in the past and fell by the wayside.

We've had a discussion within this thread and reached a partial compromise. I don't know exactly what it looks like but I have a general idea of what I think would be positive for ChiefsPlanet. I'm looking to regular participants in DraftPlanet and The Lounge to help fill in the blanks with their own cool ideas.

The following is not yet etched in stone. There's a lot of pertinent discussion throughout the thread.
DraftPlanet will remain open until one week after the Combine. Draft gurus will be encouraged to start and/or ask for threads to be moved to the Lounge. We want to encourage football discussion in the Lounge and we hope Draftnits will seek to share their knowledge with the GenPop. Finally, DraftPlanet will remain open year around but new threads will be moderated by Draft moderators and moved to the Lounge or kept in DraftPlanet based on a yet-to-be determined criteria which is up for discussion.

Yeah that sucked. I love how it is now, no bullies, just draft nerds.


It's like making the dance dance revolution kids play in front of the whole school. Yeah, it's real ****ing nerdy. It might also be fun. But most will just talk shit because **** it.

Let the smelly nerds dance in the back corner of the arcade.... wedgie free and happy.

Um, are you kidding me?

I've been accused of many things, but not starting enough football threads in the Lounge is not one of them.

You build a team through the combination of the draft and free agency. It's not one or the other.

It's your party. I'll roll with it and be fine either way.

FA, GM and coach search talk should be in the lounge, I think. Way less hypotheticals and what-ifs, because you are dealing with known commodities.

Plus, who doesn't love the occasional "okay, gang" "I saw him at best buy" threads?

I'm going to give JPB the benefit of the doubt and assume he's suffered massive head trauma and has completely forgotten who I am.

The lounge is way feistier and fickle, which I love and certainly engage in, and dp is kind of a zone where it's more friendly debate.
Agreed.

There's a different modicum of expectations and behavior conducted with the DP. The small pond / Big Fish effect is totally in play by the very nature of the main board.
It's an inverse effect of say bringing all of DC's subforum back to the mainboard.

You can't have an in depth discussion like you find in small group settings if you're doing it with 1000 people. That's why it's called a lecture because the group dynamic changes the very nature of communication and participation by introduction of a vast number of competing levels interest and value.

I rarely post in DP by comparison, even though I read it a ton, and that stems from understanding when it's of value (I hope at least)- on the main board, I know I post stuff that's absolute shit and maybe the only person amused by it is me.

EveryOne is worthy of having a voice and their opinion, but not everyone's opinion is worth having a voice to be heard.

I'm of the opinion it's cool the way it is. But I adapt to change. I guess I'm trying to figure out what is trying to be accomplished in this. Is it just more football talk in the main lounge in general? Not bitching about anything because like I said I can adapt. Just help me understand the objective better if you will. Sincerely just a bit confused

Thanks

If it were my party, we'd just do whatever. I'm adaptable. I'll figure it out. But we're trying to make things work for as many people as we can. We're trying to make it look like this is a nice place to spend time. Then we hook them before they find out the truth.

We have a cool mix of draftniks. It hasn't always been that way. In fact, the subforum was created in part because we had a guy who used to create multiple mock draft threads per day.

I'm not trying to rain on their parade. I want to bring their parade to the downtown area.
