I know things have been a bit slow around the forums lately, but you might want to check out the multiple-personality-esque thread (Multi-Season(24)Progressive(5 yr ea season)STARTS!) going on in the classifieds right now...kinda funny...

AKlopp- that's GREAT that so many owners with the SAME WRITING STYLE would be so EXCITED about a league whose rules are IMPOSSIBLE to understand!!!
10/20/2010 9:36 AM
hats off to the founder of that league for generating so much newbie excitement. And those newbs must be exceptionally bright, because despite the fact they each have fewer than 10 posts they almost  totally understand the rules.
10/20/2010 12:51 PM
Not quite as easy to understand as the rules to juggalosteve's classic "join this league", and (as of yet), not nearly as entertaining a thread, but, yeah, crazy, it's HARD not to get EXCITED about such a GREAT league!
10/20/2010 2:05 PM
How many aliases does one guy need?  And how much more obvious can it get?  They all write in the same SUPER-EXCITED style, they all joined WIS within the last month, and they all happened to choose the same goofy theme league as their first-ever.  And who's the commish of that league?  Annakourn.  I'd love to hear the motivation for this, because it's just plain strange.  
10/20/2010 2:12 PM
Seems like that guy's got some issues.
10/20/2010 2:13 PM
Well, the commish of the league has deleted his/her posts.  That first one (the theme rules post) was a doozy.  Anyone save that one?

My guess is the commish is a kid who got a bunch of promo teams with different IDs...

That thread is awesome....

Never mind, the thread wasn't deleted, just moved to Prog League Classifieds.  This kid's got STAMINA!

That thread is awesome....
I think you mean AWESOME !
10/20/2010 5:49 PM
it's funny, but also concerning as we'll be relying on these types of people to be able to fund our social security sometime.

There were actually three different threads going for this league, two in the Progressive Classifieds and one in the Theme Classifieds. My brother & I were getting a kick out of this the other night.  Most of those rookie owners were making their first forum posts in each of the threads. And all with the same writing style. I thought it was great to see 5 newbies all with 3 (3) forum posts all in threads for the same league that the only two non-rookies owners that posted were trying to get rules clarified.
10/24/2010 9:17 PM
another *funny thing* about that thread - 6 of the 8 newbies posting AWESOME! comments in that thread have NOT joined the league.
10/24/2010 9:32 PM
I received a nasty sitemail about posting in there.  Guess I won't be joining afterall.
