I remember when LNSoccer joined seeing that he was from Alberta, I thought he was connected to you trickster somehow. Good to see him on board.

But we did get a couple of people join with usernames after US College football teams, maybe they just thought it was a American Football site.

I like having the competitions pulled out as they were hard to find before.

I know I spend most of my time (what little I have) in the competitions, I just enjoy that the most!
I would suspect that would be a draw for other members, so having it easy to find and maybe broken out more would be better.


I think our football competitions section is really easy to find. Its on the front page, in the top section.

I wonder if we could devise some sort of point system for our competitions (like winning weekly gives you certain points or whatever) and then show our best performing members on the home page somehow.

The purpose of this (as well as being nice to see names up in lights lol) would be to show that we take our competitions seriously on this site and that members do enjoy taking part. Perhaps that would intrigue people. Not sure if you can put what you like on the homepage?

A little table like that would just involve putting text on the homepage, or a small inserted table.

We used to give out points for wining the competitions. I just stopped it after awhile, not for any particular reason, just got tired off having to manual award the points. Nobody seemed to miss it, but if people want we can start awarding points again.

I dont mean the stupid meaningless points bar we have next to our names that go completely unnoticed.

For example....the Premier challenge.

Weekly winner gets 5 points, monthly winner gets 10 points, yearly winner gets 50 points. They all get totted up in a little thread of their own, locked and edited by one person (I'm more than happy to trial this??)

Fantasy League...top 3 points scorers each gameweek get some points. All go toward the same tally.
"Manager of the Month award" etc.

Winners of Ticks Swindles can get some points and winners of any other little competitions we run should be worth points.

Then we will have the Talk Football overall every competition standings.

Is this interesting? A waste of time? Worth a trial?

We would end up having a yearly Talk Football competition champion.....sound intriguing?
