    I think Eric would be the main one to be reorganizing these, am I correct in that?
    I am in the same boat as EB but since I do still post for myself sometimes, I do like the reorg.

    As for cap leagues, I don't play in them so I generally just stay away and let others respond.

    Possibly, but figured since I posted in this section then admins would see it. I'm away for the next couple days but will send him a PM if I get a chance this weekend.

    Since I just joined recently I have been using the latest post option, but if I have to post my own thread I sometimes find myself confused to what section to post in. This I feel would significantly clear a lot of that up. I think this proposal is a good one.

    Being quieter maybe this will be more noticed by the admins?

      *edit Aug 23: noticing several salary cap threads still appearing in other sections. Maybe we don't need this one? Or people should be encouraged/guided to use it?
    • Goalies (same as now, seems to work well)
    • (and the rest the same)


    Thoughts?
    Don't have any suggestions for improvement, but a couple of thoughts for what they are worth:

    1. Why a separate category for goalies? I can't tell you how many times I've seen a question related to go trades, listed under the goalie section, without any reference to one-year league versus keeper league. While you could argue it's up to the poster to include this information, my experience says newbies do not.

    2. If also not sure why you'd salary cap leagues would get it's own section, but not H2H versus Roto, for example.

    Lastly, while I haven't created a new topic in eons, part of my wonders whether all forms need a sticky about tips for posting to get good answers, or perhaps tips embedded right in there where people are creating new threads?

    im same and this is why i think those ideas maybe confusing, if someone posts in one year league they may not necessarily clerical that question is for one year league..if you use "last post" option it may get confusing for the reader to know how to respond.

    I'm a latest post guy too. I wouldn't mind seeing broken down to keeper, auction, roto, pts, one year leagues and have a subsection for salary caps. Biggest issue I have is deciding where to put a new thread sometimes, so just put under general hockey talk. Also a lot depends on the info people put into their threads. Like the idea of post info.

    Good feedback, thanks.

    Yeah my suggestions are definitely not set in stone, but do feel there needs some changes to simplify to hopefully make it easier for users. I know our habits aren't all the same, but feel there is some confusion/inconsistency in the current structure.

    I know this is probably not the highest priority for the admin staff, but thought I would revisit it as things are quieter now.
