    At best, I'd probably be doing three posts. I kind of agreed to sign up based on the idea of the lower post limit tbh, to lower the work load, but if the consensus is four, then so be it.

    See this is what im afraid of. I want to lower the burden on others to get more involved. While I dont mind a 4 post limit myself, I felt a 3 post limit would strike a nice balance.

    How would you guys feel about putting it to a vote in a poll?

    As Necro says, 4 posts max

    Give people options to do whatever they want within 4 posts or less.

    Whatever works for the writer.

    Id be probably against 3 episodes plus a ppv. But by all means explain in more detail what you mean exactly so we can discuss the ins and outs of your idea.

    I think limiting the write ups to 3 Max (Outline/history, Build up post and ppv post) is just the right balance to encourage more from people as it makes it less daunting. Doing any more like you propose may give you an advantage ove rothers and make it more daunting for other players who would feel the need to keep up with you just to compete with you.

    That being said I dont wanna take the fun out of it for an experienced and active player (not too mention creator in your case).

    My idea is to present 4 documentary/reality TV style episodes, basically following the goings on as my promotion prepares for it's first pay-per-view:

    Episode 1 - Season premiere. Introducing the promotion, laying the groundwork for the season.
    Episode 2 - Mainly focused around that weeks TV show, but with some added bits thrown in.
    Episode 3 - Mainly focused around that weeks TV show, but with some added bits thrown in.
    Episode 4 - Season finale. Focused around the PPV.

    Sorry if the above is a bit vague. The PPV episode won't be any greater in length than the other ones. I don't intend on writing reams of stuff btw!

    I think ideally 4 posts do what you like with them is probably the best option.

    Remember the limiting of posts is to try keep it sharpe and streamline to encourage write-ups from every roster.

    That said If somebody puts up two/three solid posts (be it Preview-PPV, a Three post PPV whatever) I think that would be acceptable. Just give us a story.

    You can't do that. That would be unfair.

    Use it wisely Lord.

    Ive no clue whom to pick, ill just see who is still available myself.

    I hope you like the stip guys, its restrictive but I still feel you can get a ton of talent here

    Restrictive in a good way though. Easy to get 20 names of highest standard.

    Worst case you get a great trade option for later.

    An Alan Partridge themed draft. Back of the net!!!!

    I was excited but this is ruddy fantastic news.

    Last pick of the round and potentially first pick of Rd 2 is fine be me. I have a list of 3 that I think could possibly still be available by pick 18.

    Yes Partridge should be class. When Beaker was MIA I was considering doing a South Park themed one, just cos like his Simpsons one there is a million gifs / memes for it but you can't beat a bit of Norwich FMs premier Jockier of discs

    My initial plan in my head is already gone via the stip and round order , but to be fair my plan (getting two top tier guys, whom both have main evented mania) was never going to work out as both talents are too good to last until my pick in the round 2. Oh well

    Brilliant first stip, and I'll be enjoying looking on the Draft this year.

    I won't fool myself into thinking I'd get any shows up, and I'd feel too guilty at the end!

    Enjoy it everyone!

    Looks like I'm down to plan B too. Prays to draft gods.

    Not many main eventers when you spell them out.

    Actually really like the stip in spite of my plans being tossed in the fire.

    Would you not draft anyway, then post your Card with a line or two about why you drafted them or put them against each other? It is not like we have 10 on the reserve list.

    I say this as someone why has not posted shows but will do the above this year at the very least.

    now thats a tag team. Starting the draft as we mean to go on :pac:

    it only took 1 pick for me to have to change my plans (I say plans I literally just have one list of 7 names this time)

    Barely had to think about that pick. There was one other that tempted me, but Brock will fit with more people than my other choice, which I need cause I've no clue who'll be available in 35 odd picks :P

    I think if people are going with Joe's plan of 3 shows / 4 posts then the first one of those fleshing out your feds background could be done at your leisure as we draft considering the thing often takes months just for that phase.

    Love the stip, interesting to see who slips in this round. On the posts limit I'm gonna go against the grain in here so far and stick to my initial thinking, 4 posts with whatever set up you like would be too close to recent years imo and risks the same problems that we are trying to address with write ups. I think beaker was on the right path with his setup, maybe loosen it to the 2nd show can be written as an episode if people wish but keep the 3 post limit with post #3 being the PPV which can be split into 2 if more images are needed.
