    Ok everyone,

    Still lots of problems I know but we are going to try to keep the draft alive.

    Firstly, let me explain the format of the voting stage - read carefully, as there are some changes from previous years.

    First there will be FOUR GROUPS of FOUR TEAMS, all drawn at random.

    Teams that finish first will go automatically through to quarter finals. Teams which finish second and third will go to quarter final playoffs to - these playoffs will be SEEDED so that second placed teams play third placed teams.

    The Quarter Finals WILL NOT be seeded, so two first placed teams could play each other, as can team which were in the same group.

    Each member can vote for TWO teams in each group - there will be NO TIEBREAKER VOTES. If teams are tied for second and third place, there will be a coin toss, but if teams are tied for the all important first and second place divide, or third and fourth place divide, there will be a DIRECT PLAYOFF.

    EVERYONE CAN VOTE, including non draft players, though members who are obviously just signed up to vote will be discounted and may be investigated leading to disqualification.

    TRY TO VOTE ON THE FORUMS, HOWEVER IF YOU CAN'T YOU MAY VOTE ONLY BY SENDING ME A FACEBOOK MESSAGE WITH YOUR VOTES. No votes posted anywhere else will be accepted, once votes have been PMed to me they cannot be changed, even if you later come to the thread and vote differently the original ones will stand. If you vote for any more or less than two teams your vote will be discounted and you CANNOT vote again.

    Let me know here or on facebook if there is anything you dont understand. All key posts will also be replicated on the facebook group, including this one. PM me if you want to join, you dont have to be a draft member.

    PLEASE NOW POST YOUR TEAM NAME HERE OR ON FACEBOOK, BUT NOT YOUR FORMATION. ONCE IHAVE ALL THE TEAM NAMES, I WILL DO THE DRAW AND THEN YOU CAN GIVE ME YOUR FORMATION

    Here is the draw for the draft groups, it was done by putting all the names in a list randomizer and then randomized and the first four, second four, third four and fourth four are each a group

    Group A
    1. Fender
    2. Jaboldinho
    3. Cdciccio
    4. Sepak
    Group B
    1. Arnau
    2. Poet
    3. Nimreitz
    4. Nady
    Group C

    4. Dytza
    Group D

    Now you know who you are up against, please PM me your formation and we will start when I have them all. In your PM, remind me your teamname, from now on I will use Team Names only (not usernames) to try to reduce personal bias.

    Reread the voting stage rules in the first post of this thread, remember, winners go through automatically and second and third placed teams go into playoffs, fourth placed teams are out.

    Thusfar I have received teams from the following:

    Poet
    Nimreitz
    (Sir Didier)
    Azrael
    Cdciccio
    Chunga
    Nady
    Fender
    Massive

    And am yet to receive teams from:

    Skip
    Jaboldinho
    Andrei
    Arnau
    Dytza
    Xaviesta
    Sepak

    I will NOT go searching around for your teams - you must pm your formations to me.

    Also as he refuses to join the fb group if sepak is the last one outstanding we will proceed with just a list of his players, no formation.

    And the Quarter Final Playoffs draw:

    Dirty Seamen vs The GoT Spoilers if I Don't Win-ers
    Killer Plate vs Team Awesomeness
    Rotation Squad vs Killer Juniors
    The GOATS vs Junior Plate Killers


    (done with randomizing the bottom seeds)

    You have min 24 hours to submit your teamsheet now that you know your opponent, after 24 hours I will post the match ups as soon as I can and if I haven't heard from anyone I will use the same teamsheet as from the groups.

    IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO SEND ME A WORKING IMAGE THAT I CAN EMBED IN A POST WITH AN IMG TAG

    Calumn, you really should use the forum upload image function rather than embedding with the IMG tag.

    Hosting locally is always going to be more reliable than an external host.

    Yes you do - you just haven't looked and are being difficult and stubborn.
    It's exactly the same as adding an image to an email. You hit the "UPLOAD" button when you're typing the body of the post.

    If you're on a computer, you can even just copy and paste the image itself into the body.
