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.

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.

Right. Because that's a feasible option.

Just get a DraftPlanet version of the Beryllium thread going. Because that's sustainable and everything.

We send a pm to everyone that's gonna participate with the simple directions on how to sort it to only draft threads so it can be easily accessed.

We have plenty of time to make sure everyone understands how to do it.

I welcome the additional discussion and audience.

There's no reason to drop the IQ of the topic down a few points to ensure everybody else gets minimally literate on it.
You are 100% entitled to that opinion. No problem.

But, don't be flipping out about how the main forum doesn't want to talk football, or that no one cares about improving the overall level of football conversation... when it's really you that doesn't care if there are more football topics on the main page. Then you act like everyone in the main forum is essentially beneath you.

It's a stupid idea for them to have done this right in the middle of the combine. It should have been done either before or after. Having said that, the Gods mods have spoken. Just port over the active threads and go from there.

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.
I foresee a ban in your future.

Then you will slam your fist down in anger, causing a nearby pipe organ to tip over and crush you. News of your demise will drift back to Chiefsplanet and someone will post a Curly Bill gif.

Don't let someone post a Curly Bill gif in your honor. Switch to laid back life outlook.

Just admit that in order to make the Lounge more football literate, you're taking a dump on the (admittedly few) people who really did enjoy DraftPlanet. That you're breaking a few eggs that nobody gives much of a shit about in order to make your omelet less mediocre.

Unaltered by thread view functions, ready to give me the answer to my question.

Yeah, I'm bitching about this because it's not the way I do things. Yeah, I'll have to change, and that sucks. No, seriously, it really does. It's bad enough that youtube made it ****ing impossible to find channels you subscribe to that haven't posted any videos in awhile. Now I gotta deal with this bullshit?

I'm a reasonable person. If you don't like this plan, then give me a plan that is going to be practical for the majority of the board.

I know there are a dozen gys who follow draft issues more closely than anybody else and they are why that forum was created. Why can't you use this opportunity to garner interest from another few hundred people?

Hey - that's fair criticism. This decision should have been made a month ago. How do we make it work?
