MUST READ: ALL GMs

Postby Robin Hood » Thu Jul 15, 2010 2:22 pm

From now on when a trade is posted in the forum, use the following format:

STRUCTURE

To Pittsburgh:

Player A

To Toronto:

Player B

*ALWAYS USE THE TEAM'S CITY!



PICKS

Use the following format when trading picks:

2010 1st Rounder (PIT)
Year Round Team

WAIVER PICKS

2013 1st Waiver (PIT)
Year Round Team

Really appreciate the cooperation guys. It makes things a lot easier when moving trades over and recording them.

Thanks,

Shiv

Great idea Shiv...I also think we need to make sure we spell out the players name in full and spell it correctly (for search purposes mainly).

I'm assuming you mean (ex: TOR/PIT)? I like that idea too.

I almost think the trades themselves should be in a separate forum from the trading block. In the trading block, everyone should have one thread for themselves with their team name that they can bump anytime they have an update or something. It just cleans things up and makes it easier to reference everything. I know we all like to have our cute way to posting a trade or our trading block but we need remove all possible confusion.

Spell it as "New York Islanders" only because there are two New York based squads, and it would be confusing if you both simply posted under "New York". Also Bcool could you type (CLB) as an abbreviation instead of (CBJ) only because I've used CLB for the last year +.

And thanks for the hard work shivsta, I've been really busy lately.

I don't know if we can work it out.. but can we have something like this?

When open a new topic in Trading forum, you can choose a prefix for the topic (you know like those in HFboard you can choose prefixes like OT:... Prospect info:.. etc)? Then we can make a few prefixes and for TRADE: maybe after i choose that prefix we can make the webpage load a standard template or something like To (pull down box choosing a team).... (ok maybe im asking too much i only know abit of excel macros and pascal and firefox that's basically it dun rmb anything for http).... and for draft picks if we wanna standardize them... is it possible to make a button like those on the top like when you click "IMG" it will have "[img/]" those? so when you click the "Entry Picks" button then it will auto insert something like 2010 1st Round (Team) .. so you only need to amend a few words but u can easily make everything standardize..

lol the more i type about it the more ridicious i think this is.. so let me stop here

I think that the pick format should be updated, and enforced. Too much confusion from people not updating when picks are traded, and too many naming conventions being used when listing picks traded, making it impossible to search for them

My suggestion would be to create a list of team name abbreviations and post in the following format:

2011 1st PHI
2011 1st waiver PHI

Any other combination would result in 1/3 of a warning. On the 3 strike, an official warning be given. Not meaning to go all Hitler on people, but we are going into our 3rd year, and things should be easier to track.

ppl still use CBJ... sigh

the devils shud be NJ, not NJD. lightning should be just TB, not TBL, same goes for the kings as LA not LAK etc..

ppl shud realize that the team abbreviations come from the city/state in which the team is from, not the team nomenclature. We dont see TML as Toronto's abbreviations, or CBH for Chicago. Only the cities in which more than one teams exist may override this condition

We do it for two reasons:

1) So that every team has a three letter abbreviation, it looks cleaner.

2) The NHL uses the same abbreviations in their box scores.

Or we can just use the full team name: "Columbus Blue Jackets"

Might take a little more time, but it's not that difficult and there will be less confusion/mistakes with keeping track of trades/picks etc.

There shouldn't be any confusion now...And it takes alot more time, not a little. Our entire format to this point has been the same, if we were to change it now we would have to change the format of every trade prior to the change.
