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.

It's also saying something about the state of affairs about CP, that the main forum is so inadequate for football talk that you're literally forcing people who want to talk football and the Draft to put threads in here, or not have threads at all.

I can't believe you'd throw a fit about this. Actually I can... but it doesn't help improve football conversation by putting draft threads in a subforum.

For the record I think the media forum should be in here too. Put the right prefixes on these threads and you can sort them however you want.

It's up for discussion but I presume "open season" for draft discussion in the Lounge would be from the moment we lose a 28 point lead in the playoffs until opening day of training camp?

Thread creation in draftplanet is now disabled but you're welcome to continue existing discussions and moderators are allowed to move active discussions to the Lounge.


you have awoken a sleeping giant

Also, I'm not looking forward to posting some shred of a draft tidbit in its own thread only to see bullshit like a houstonwhodat thread or one of Deberg_1990's parodies of What Does The Fox Say? bump it off the first page within 2 hours. You can bitch about the Lounge being nothing but shitty NFTs during the offseason, but like it or not those NFTs are getting posted no matter where the draft talk is. They'll get posted, people will still flock to them, and they'll be pushing the supposedly worthy draft threads that we want to take care of off the front page. Yeah. That's making sure those threads are within easy reach.

Having the draft forum up during draft season does a lot of good things, and it has its use. A lot of members felt encouraged to post their own mock drafts because they knew discussion would be kept around about it for days. Now there will be far less of that.

Since when does ChiefsPlanet give two shits about improving conversation of any kind.

Suggestions that conversation needs to be improved are uniformly met with derision and "get out if you don't like it."

I mean, shit, the administrator of this board bans people left and right who disagree with him in the political forum.

ChiefsPlanet doesn't exist for improved conversation. It just, kind of exists because it does.

Most of this is personal, I'll admit. I get sick and tired of people shitting on people talking football on a football forum. Forcing draft threads, a topic which only a fraction of the people on this board are even conversant in, into this morass of poop threads really throws a wrench into what was honestly the best thing this forum has.

The people who participate in that mock draft probably don't want to go searching for the mother****ing thread every time they try to make a goddamn piss drinking pick

And yet the fantasy football forum lives.

God damn, mods. I'm not saying you don't care about the Draft for no reason.
