I think I joined the Bonanza in its third or fourth year. :-D

Bonanza no longer has any original managers with the departure of Nene - he was the last original manager.
Yes, Warriors sold at last!

He PM'd me roughly 3 weeks ago but no sure thing if we send him anything, he'd respond.

Yeah that was unfortunate.

I wonder if we could get Yilun. He pops up from time to time.

So nene is in. That makes 14. We're all good to go.

Also, if anyone want's to raise any questions/comments on rules. Now is the time. I noticed that Yahoo has added an option for reseeding during the playoffs. Any thoughts/opinions on that. Currently at the default of no.

Something that we're doing in the XKL this year is having all players be on waivers and use continuous daily FAAB for all pickups. I like this idea because it takes away the whole race to add popular FAs that rewards people who are online all the time and punishes those who can't be. Everyone will have a chance at the end of each day to bid on any players they want to pick up, from $0 to their remaining budget. I think it adds more strategy to player acquisition, and levels the playing field. It would also fall perfectly in line with the whole auction theme of this league.

Oh, and I've always wanted to try a league with divisions but haven't had a chance to do so. Maybe we could cut the league in half, and split it into two conferences a la the NBA?

Already set up for that. I mentioned it early on. And no one objected or noticed. So yes, continuous waiver with daily pick ups. FAAB is set at $100. I'm still keeping the max 4 moves per week limit from last season.
