The advice Strotty and Crimedog chimed in with should be edited into the original post.

OK. I must be really bored at work since I decided to read this announcement, but when posting any draft, trade, keeper questions, you should specify these important league settings:

(1) number of teams (8-team, 12-team, 20-team, etc.)
(2) roto or h2h
(3) categories (std 9-cat, std 8-cat, or list out categories if not one of the stds)
(4) roster makeup (pg-sg-g-sf-pf-f-c-c-util-util-bench-bench, and IL if applicable)

Other pertinent information as keeper, dynasty, redraft, and competiveness level of league. If roto, give max games if its not std 82 games. If h2h, state whether weekly or daily lineups and specify scoring if points based.
Yes, Warriors sold at last!

Note that there is now an option to bump your topic at the bottom of the screen. ;-D Please use it if you feel the need to bump your topic, so that we don't have to scroll through several "bump" posts. %-6

I feel others should help out other posts instead of just posting their own question. It seems like a lot of posters are just posting questions and that's it. This is a community fellas! We're all here to help each other out and give insight/opinions/thoughts. ;-D

I just attempted to answer the first three posts here. Not one of the posters included their cats, not even h2h or roto. That's discouraging.

Yeah we seem to have gotten away from this. Including league type, number of teams, roster spots, categories, move limits, current standings, number of teams who make the playoffs, etc will all help the community over better advice. Detail. Detail. Detail!

If they get offered someone for Chris Bosh, and we tell them to do it and then we find out they have Yao and Marcus Camby, then we're not really helping and the people asking get no help. ;-D


True, true. Good point. ;-D
