I care about bees, just not enough to read about them. I planted wildflowers to help the bees!

That's good enough for me. I'll just have to sprinkle bee facts into random threads to help bump up your knowledge.

Did you know a queen bee can lay in excess of 3,000 eggs per day? That's a lot of kids!

Did you know that bees will visit up to 2 million flowers to make a single pound of honey?

Larger than the worker bees, the male honey bees (also called drones) have no stinger and do not work at all. All they do is mate.

And the queen honey bee will mate 12 to 15 times a day and return for several days for the sex... where I come from.... we call that a whore house

How the Hell did we get back on bees again.

I dunno but this is the most hilariously inaccurate bee fact I've ever seen. A queen only mates once in her lifetime.

Well, to be more specific, she has a single mating flight where she will mate with 7-10 drones. Then never mate again.

Things somehow slowed down, which is surprising. I expect them to ramp up again as we approach Cisco's year end. It wasn't just the workload though I was pretty burned out on Fantasy Football in general. I think I need to force myself to take a sabbatical for a couple months each year to recharge.

Absolutely not. That was one of the reasons why RWTC wasn't working out. There wasn't enough connection between the two and this is one club. I know almost doubling our membership is gonna make it hard for some to read things as thoroughly as before but honestly we already have several folks who admittedly haven't tried to before so if that number grows then it does. I know that if I'm away long enough it can take some real time to catch up but I still do.

It may not be a popular opinion but there seems to be an awful lot of posts with no substance. Maybe having a 30 post requirement is fostering an atmosphere of shit posts. I don't want to sound like I'm complaining because I love how active everyone is but it is hard to follow conversations sifting through the comments that actually say something and a smiley face comment or gif comment.

Hopefully. Ultimately, I just don't care enough about 'other leagues' to give 2 turds about what division they are placed in, let alone the analysis of their matchups etc... Could just be me. I guess I'll become one of those who does not read everything and the "mark this thread as read" will become my friend. Evil laugh

Can't please everyone.

I know when we had a separate forum for each in RWTC there was almost no crossover and while that could work for some, it went completely against what I was trying to accomplish so won't make that mistake again.

As for quality and quantity of posts, while a few might be wasting everyone's time just trying to meet our quota, the intent and the reality for most is to keep those who are uninterested out of here. I don't think we have been 100% successful but we're close. For some, while they might make posts that we could isolate as not much in terms of quality, it's also a tiny drop in the lake of activity they provide overall so I certainly won't complain at them.

If we were to drop the standard by X or altogether, how many are delusional enough to believe that everyone would give us any real effort? There are a few here now that clearly don't "get it" and I know would go to full scale ZERO if allowed to and I just don't want to waste my time in a league with folks like that ever again.

Oh well, just my take.

Thanks Brad. It was a bad month for me with work. My business is being sold and it is very stressful. I receive my buy out offer on Monday. Things should open up for me after that.

I hear ya man. IN a perfect world, everyone would "get it" and no rule would need to be in place or enforced but we all see other leagues that don't have anywhere near these rules and what happens? Luckily for me, anyone who isn't on board with what I'm doing here isn't captive to my insanity because there are millions of normal leagues out there to choose from.

For myself, if RW collapsed due to not enough people being interested in this level of commitment I would have zero hesitation finding something else to do with my time because I just don't find fantasy football fun without the interactions surrounding it.

I've got no problem with gifs or smilies. Sometimes it's either reply with one of those or some generic "that's funny." Personally I'd rather laugh at a crazy gif.

In joining RW my decision was based on the standards overall. But what stood out among those standards were those related to being active on the forum, posting etc...and the tracking of that participation, and being held accountable. There are hundreds of leagues in the ffb world that offer just about every variation of the salary, contract, auction format. Free to a high end fee. The number of active "league communities" are far less...and thats what stood out to me in looking at RW.
It takes time for a league community to absorb this many new owners, start a second league. As to the meaningfulness of posts, which in itself can't be agreed upon, that will change over time. Thanks!
