Do not use this thread for anything other than to sign-up to be placed on a team.
Sign-ups will be open July 7th through 6:00 pm EST August 7th.
If you have questions about the contest you need answered before committing to this contest or comments, please do not post them here – note that the contest rules and information can be found in the Scoring / Rules thread stickied in the League Play section. If that still does not answer your questios, send a PM to either Beamen123 or Midlife Crisis. Please, only one post from a person on this thread.
If you sign up for a team and need to withdraw for any reason please send a PM to Midlife Crisis and your entry post will be deleted. If, at the time teams are formed, you are suspended from AT by the Mod Staff, your entry into this contest will be voided (we wouldn’t know when you would be allowed back in to participate in the contest – if at all).
We will build teams of 15 people per team, using a computer program to randomly assign team members. Of course this works best if we get an even multiple of 15 people registered (15, 30, 45, 60, etc.). In the likely event we do not get an even multiple of 15 people (eg 17, 33, 52, 67, etc.), we will take the last several people who registered (by order of registration, beyond the last multiple of 15) and put them into the “last team”. The next several people to sign up on the official thread after “official registration” closes at 6:00 PM EST August 7 (assuming there are any who sign up late) will be placed into the “last team” in the order they sign up so that the “last team” can have a full roster of 15 hunters (this may not happen, in which case the “last team” can play shorthanded). These will be the only exceptions to the “official registration” deadline of 6:00 PM EST August 7 (we have to draw a line somewhere to make the administration of the contest manageable – this is not our full time job). If you miss the sign up for this year’s contest don’t worry – in less than a year you will be able to register for next year’s contest!
Again, we will not make substitutions for people who do not actively participate in their team (too much of an administrative headache) or later want to drop out, so be sure you are committed to participating in this before signing up. This is part of the luck of the draw.
If you change your screen name anytime after signing up until the end of the contest you must send PMs to both Midlife Crisis and Beamen123 from your old screen name and new screen name so we can make the necessary changes to this year’s team roster. And you should also notify your teammates on your team thread.
If you participated in past contests and have changed your screen name please notify Midlife Crisis in order to update the past records with your new name (to make the All-Star list checks work).
