The Mauer World is entering season 20 and we are looking for a few owners who enjoy a world that has little drama, low turnover, and rules to ensure a level playing field. Here are the rules of our world.
Private World Rules
If the world is voting for a new rule to be instituted it needs 2/3(21 owners) to be apporved for the world. All owners are strongly encourages to vote. Voting in done by trade chat to prevent bickering on the chat board.
If a rule has been broken a Vets Commitee consisting of 5 owners(including the commish) will come to a decision if a owner needs to be removed from the world because of a rule violation. The owner who is up for removal can make a case for why they shouldn't be removed from the world. Then the Vet commitee would discuss and vote on if the owner should be removed from the league.

3. Minor Leagues
Minor League teams should have enough players to field a competive roster, and not have pitching staffs that are at 0%. This takes the fun out of the game even though it is the minor league level, and by having your batters facing pitchers with 0% you don't get a good feel of how your prospects are performing.
4. Minimum Win Rule
In the mauer league there is a Mimimum win rule of 58 wins. If an owner fails to reach 58 wins the Vet Commitee will decide if the owner should stay in the league. This rule is in place to prevent tanking for high draft picks, and to keep the world competitive.
5. Rule Changes
As we go into future seasons of the Mauer World we might find that we need to add new rules, or modify established rules. If this occurs any new rules or changes to established rules will be up for discussion after roster expansions to the end of the season. That will give us a week to discuss new rules, and rule changes. Then we would vote in the time between the start of the play in series and the end of the divisional champoiship series.
