In support of prospects, Always33 and Adopting TDers everywhere, and hoping the powers that be (AKA moderators) do not become too angry with me, I am declaring draft day beginning 6AM Monday morning May 9th.
Revolution rules
1)Previously adopted prospects are off the board unless waived by current owners. Current owners can waive their prospects by declaring they only want to keep certain prospects. There are no limits to the number of prospects they want to keep.
-Hrbowski has Rochester Pitchers.
-Always33 has Fort Meyers but has already opened up all but Westphal, Van Steensel, Stewart, and Jay.
-ShaneWahl has Chatanooga hitters.
-Seth has Cedar Rapids hitters. I would like to apologize to him at this time for missing his post claiming them. Since I started one for all of them already, I have second shot at any/all Seth waives
2) Prospect pages not up within a week of the draft are back open for anyone else to claim by creating a page
3) Any prospect not updated for a month can be claimed by anyone else by posting on that page their claim with an update on the prospect from the past month.
4)two prospects can be drafted per day with no limit on the total number of prospects owned by one poster

I am open to further rules and hope to get a stamp of approval. Hopefully this is a peaceful revolution...

This is the best thing I've heard in a long, long time.

 

In honor of the occasion, I would like to respectfully ask the powers that be to unpin the old page (especially since it was locked a few weeks ago anyway) and pin this.

Some attention is going to have to be brought to this somehow, from official people, because most TDers have clearly given up on this.

Could I add, that when you start a new thread for a prospect, could you put '2016' in the title, so when some do a search, it's clear which year it is? I'll edit titles for now, but if you start any new threads, that would help.

Reminder that I am doing Chattanooga hitters. I fear that the window of interest expired back a month ago, though . . . shame.

Thank you, Bob. I was getting pretty dismayed.

I just want several dozen (at least) threads started. A smaller group of people can work on keeping them updated.

37 or so players started. This is probably roughly 3/4 the amount that would have been started had things not been messed with. Quite a thorough disappointment and weird thing to do to this part of the site. I could go on about this . . .

So you know, Seth has opened a thread in the Minor League forum to discuss Adopt-A-Prospect moving forward. If you want this program to continue, please respond to his inquiries for input and ideas. :) And maybe offer to help?
