Pre-Community Prospect List Discussion Thread

Selecting who goes on first, and what the format should be

"Who should I vote for at #3???"
"Who should I vote for at #3???"

The Community Prospect List voting is coming up guys! Time to pull in our verdicts from the year and see how our farm hands have progressed. It is also a time to go back and see how we fared the previous year with our grades, and how right or wrong we are.

The other thing to figure out is the format we want this list to take place. The current plan is as such:

  • Five candidates will appear on the ballot.
  • In the comments, commenters will nominate a player to be put onto the list the next round. After the first nomination for a player has been put in, all other votes for that player will come from Rec'ing that post.
  • The format for the comment should be "Nomination: Player Name".
  • If a prospect is traded, his name will be crossed out, and all other players will be moved up a space.
  • If a prospect is acquired, a special vote will be put up to determine where that player should be voted to rank, by asking what player is that prospect better than. For example, if we acquired a a top prospect that could be our new top guy, we'd have a vote for who that player was better than, with the top 5 prospects thus far. That prospect would then be inserted into the list right above that player.
Other details also need to be ironed out, such as how many players will be on the CPL, how long will we go, and what frequency should the votes be?

Discuss away!
