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.

From now until draft day I'm going to be doubling down on starting NFTs in the main forum. Big, farty, nasty, smelly ones. They'll be like that shitty new Joseph Gordon Levitt variety show that nobody ever ****ing watches... they'll be about teacher/student sex, constipation, grill recipes, in-house forum quarrels, and stupid uninteresting gblowfish-type news items. All rolled into one thread. Each ****ing day. And they'll show up whenever somebody takes the time to post a really great draft observation or report that they wrote themselves.

That's right. I'm going to destroy the things that I love to prove a point to everybody. All you mother****ers that think this is wonderful are going to want to join Warpaint ****ing Illustrated after I'm done pouring an ocean of moldy diarrhea all over everybody.

**** you all.

Yes, ChiefsPlanet really is concerned with improving conversation. What was I thinking.
Yeah but you aren't arguing for improving conversation. You're arguing for improving the board experience for yourself.

I would argue that draft time used to be one of the best times of the year on this forum. We used to really get into it, and I think it did improve the overall football knowledge level to have these topics discussed on the main page. Instead you get stuck with 12 million Geno Smith threads and little else. I think re-introducing some of this on the main page would help improve the lack of football knowledge you're complaining about.

I need this explained to me. This makes zero sense.

"Open season" compared to... what, exactly?

**** yeah. Finally.

Guys, if you start a draft thread, just classify it as such.

When you want to only see draft stuff, all you have to do is click the little draft logo (while viewing the lounge) before any draft thread and it will display all of the draft threads.

If people don't want to give a shit about the Draft, let them not give a shit about it.

There's no reason to drop the IQ of the topic down a few points to ensure everybody else gets minimally literate on it.

Saccopoo started something like eight different threads segmenting the results of the Combine into easily scroll-able threads, that would all be on page 8 of the Lounge right now.
Leave them there, then. Keep running with the stuff you have.
