      A Few Simple Rules   05/22/2017

      Sailing Anarchy is a very lightly moderated site. This is by design, to afford a more free atmosphere for discussion. There are plenty of sailing forums you can go to where swearing isn't allowed, confrontation is squelched and, and you can have a moderator finger-wag at you for your attitude. SA tries to avoid that and allow for more adult behavior without moderators editing your posts and whacking knuckles with rulers. We don't have a long list of published "thou shalt nots" either, and this is by design. Too many absolute rules paints us into too many corners. So check the Terms of Service - there IS language there about certain types of behavior that is not permitted. We interpret that lightly and permit a lot of latitude, but we DO reserve the right to take action when something is too extreme to tolerate (too racist, graphic, violent, misogynistic, etc.). Yes, that is subjective, but it allows us discretion. Avoiding a laundry list of rules allows for freedom; don't abuse it. However there ARE a few basic rules that will earn you a suspension, and apparently a brief refresher is in order. 1) Allegations of pedophilia - there is no tolerance for this. So if you make allegations, jokes, innuendo or suggestions about child molestation, child pornography, abuse or inappropriate behavior with minors etc. about someone on this board you will get a time out. This is pretty much automatic; this behavior can have real world effect and is not acceptable. Obviously the subject is not banned when discussion of it is apropos, e.g. talking about an item in the news for instance. But allegations or references directed at or about another poster is verboten. 2) Outing people - providing real world identifiable information about users on the forums who prefer to remain anonymous. Yes, some of us post with our real names - not a problem to use them. However many do NOT, and if you find out someone's name keep it to yourself, first or last. This also goes for other identifying information too - employer information etc. You don't need too many pieces of data to figure out who someone really is these days. Depending on severity you might get anything from a scolding to a suspension - so don't do it. I know it can be confusing sometimes for newcomers, as SA has been around almost twenty years and there are some people that throw their real names around and their current Display Name may not match the name they have out in the public. But if in doubt, you don't want to accidentally out some one so use caution, even if it's a personal friend of yours in real life. 3) Posting While Suspended - If you've earned a timeout (these are fairly rare and hard to get), please observe the suspension. If you create a new account (a "Sock Puppet") and return to the forums to post with it before your suspension is up you WILL get more time added to your original suspension and lose your Socks. This behavior may result a permanent ban, since it shows you have zero respect for the few rules we have and the moderating team that is tasked with supporting them. Check the Terms of Service you agreed to; they apply to the individual agreeing, not the account you created, so don't try to Sea Lawyer us if you get caught. Just don't do it. Those are the three that will almost certainly get you into some trouble. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DO ONE OF THESE THINGS, please do the following: Refrain from quoting the offending text, it makes the thread cleanup a pain in the rear Press the Report button; it is by far the best way to notify Admins as we will get e-mails. Calling out for Admins in the middle of threads, sending us PM's, etc. - there is no guarantee we will get those in a timely fashion. There are multiple Moderators in multiple time zones around the world, and anyone one of us can handle the Report and all of us will be notified about it. But if you PM one Mod directly and he's off line, the problem will get dealt with much more slowly. Other behaviors that you might want to think twice before doing include: Intentionally disrupting threads and discussions repeatedly. Off topic/content free trolling in threads to disrupt dialog Stalking users around the forums with the intent to disrupt content and discussion Repeated posting of overly graphic or scatological porn content. There are plenty web sites for you to get your freak on, don't do it here. And a brief note to Newbies... No, we will not ban people or censor them for dropping F-bombs on you, using foul language, etc. so please don't report it when one of our members gives you a greeting you may find shocking. We do our best not to censor content here and playing swearword police is not in our job descriptions. Sailing Anarchy is more like a bar than a classroom, so handle it like you would meeting someone a little coarse - don't look for the teacher. Thanks.

Fantasy football SA league

74 posts in this topic

Wanted to start a new thread as the old one is full of crap and burried.

 

Basic Plan:

1. Play on yahoo

2. Auto draft - you can choose your order if you would like, or system will auto pick it for you

3. $10 per head goes to winner at end of season.

4. Basic rules might change some stuff but low key

 

Prob want to limit it to 10 as it is more fun that way but would concider more if the group wants to allow it. We have been doing it for about 5 years, the old team setup was screwy and no one has the passwords so I will start a new league. Reply to this thread if you want in. First 10 get dibs.

 

Bring it.....

I will do it. 9 so far. Details in OP. I figure best to draft after 4th gm if auto draft so that puts it around sept 3, maybe the 6th as the 3rd is after the holiday weekend where people will be sailin..... Prob limmit it to 10 as 12 ends up being a pita if your draft goes bad and you can't pick anyone up on wavers. I will get you all the details once league is set up.

Is that 7pm mountain time?

 

I've never had the fantasy Superbowl be on week 17 since that's the last regular season NFL week, and a lot of team are sitting starters.

 

My suggestion would be to have 4 playoff spots, and have round 1 of the playoffs week 15 and the SB week 16.

 

Just a thought...just the tip!

Don't shoot the messenger or a I am gonna just set it and forget about it.. I am jsut throwing it out there. IMHO yes week 15 then sb week 16 maybe if we want 6 teams in to keep it interesting for everyone then we go wk 14 15 16... Otherwise the bottom 6 teams stop playing at wk 12 or so cause there is no hope and the rest of the season is shit.

 

Do we want wavers?? I vote for 1 day. Don't really care what others do after that. Took divisions out. Will set draft for wed the 3rd.

Not shooting the messenger, just trying to help.

 

In another league I'm commissioning, we have a loser tax. Basically for this league you would pay an extra $10 for last place, that way the teams that suck don't roll over at the end of the season effecting bubble teams. If you're not making the playoffs, you fighting to not be DFL.

 

If cool with the 1 day waiver. And I would have the priority based on standings.

have you set up the draft time yet? Double check. If you make it an auction draft I will not complain.

 

Yahoo just says our league is on auto-draft with no time set

Was going to set it to go at 6 mst. Auto is not mandatory, but I cannot change it to regular until I get home from work.(no access). I assumed(wrongly) that everyone set their draft order days ago and let the thing autopick. I think if regular and you do not pick in 1min 30 sec it picks for you, but not sure. I should be home around 3:30 - 4:00 mst so check back then.

So I get a message about the QB and points for sacks. This would be the first league I've been a part of where the QB was penalized for sacks. Seems harsh to me since sack often have to do with the O-Line and not the QB.

 

IF you want sacks I would vote for -1 point for a sack taken, and would really prefer there to be no penalty for a sack.

Default for some reason was 5. donno. I told all yous guys to look before we started. I can change whatever everyone agrees on... -5 does seem harsh..... don't really care ether way....

-5 is too much. I'd say -2 at the most, preferably -1. Or zero.

 

Whoever has Julius Thomas is sitting on a fantasy goldmine. I tried to pick him up Wed, but he was already on someone's roster.

1 more change I want to run by you guys. There are - points in there for D that allows xxx amount of yards. (300-399 = -5 400 - 499 = -10 etc) I would like to take negative points out of that category or knock em down to something reasonable. Kind of negates the d if they have a semi bad game or play a great QB.

 

Let me know what you think.

Is it to late to change the waiver rules. I hate having to be watching the waiver wire while games are going on.

 

Could players go on waiver from Sunday to Tuesday? Pick order would be based on placing.

I think it is already. Yahoo changed all their stuff so this is a learning experience for me. So Votes on no waver and no - d points??

OK, so

1. We want to take away negative points for the defense. yes/no

2. we want to remove waver restrictions. yes/no

I want to keep negative d points. If your D sucks you should have to pay the price.

 

Hey, if we are going to change all the scoring now I think starting two quarter backs is stooopid

1. Yes, or at least adjust them to make them less penal.

2. Should not be able to pick up players during the game. Waiver wire should run Tuesday with waiver order based on record - worst to first.

Fine by me. The QB thing I agree with, it changed to 2 when I set the bench to 5 guys and I didn't notice before draft. That change is going to be the biggest. I personally did not draft with 2 in mind (hence flacco), but others may have. 2slow is correct that if your d sucks you pay but the way it is set is way to harsh.

 

What I have now.

 

Neg d points will be lowered or eliminated.

I will fuck with waver wire

and I have 2 votes to go to 1 QB......

 

After tonight scorring will be closed as all games will have been played. Right now it is no big deal but after MNF games no more.......

Low negative D points

Waivers from Tuesday on

3 votes to go 1 QB.

I'm ok with starting 1 qb.

If you're going to be making changes to the active rosters, I'm also OK with rb/rb/wr/wr/flex, rather than 3 wr's and a flex, but I'm fine either way.

Fuck off and suck it up. No one looked at the fricking points before the draft (including me) so no one said shit until now. The first week is not over, no wavers have happened and teams are set.

 

HTFU man......

I will give you that no one looked at the points...that much, and changing all that shit for the better is all good with me.

 

But going from 2 QBs to 1 QB is too much of a change!

 

I'm happy to put Brees and Rodgers on the trade block, and will be happy to hear offers...

 

It's not my fault I was 1 of only 2 people who decided to NOT auto pick, and was fully aware of 2 QBs going into the draft.

 

Sorry I'm not sorry for drafting them!

Ok so this is it

Wavers changed to Sun - Tues I think they were already that but I fucked with em so much that I donno. That is what they are set to.

D points lowered to be not as Obnoxous but high enough to keep 2 slow happy ......

And NoCal gets 3 qb's we all get 2...... so he won't take his ball and go home...... :rolleyes:

 

Good job on catching that on draft night btw. I was looking through the results and Luck, Eli and Vick were still available in the 7th....

 

Anything else??

If I had to guess I would say Punani Jackson will be the first player to just quit FF this year. Someone needs to explain to poor mr jackson that it is not a good idea to have a back up kicker and defense.
