    My argument for team captains is that there will need to be a go-to person for communication between admin, teams, & members. There has to be that one person that knows what's going on because all of the information is funneled into their inbox.

    Actually, private forums do sort of nix the need for a captain.. Admin just posts updates in the private forum.. Members keep eachother up to date in the threads... Yeah. Currently agreed on the no captain front.

    I figure all this could be decided democratically within the teams once they're established.

    When I thought and spoke of captains I was talking about the person in charge of coordinating efforts -- most particularly for deciding who to employ. That is to say, the captain rank is removed after the teams are divvied up.

    This is why I wanted to have the challenges decided up front. After all, if the teams are going to be committal, ideally it would be helpful to know what's going to be happening to decide who's best for the job.
    I didn't have in mind any responsibility outside that.
    I don't see any reason they couldn't also be the message courier etc.

    The prize is bragging rights imo. I'd consider captain to get things started and teams sorted, after that I think groups can work out their own dynamics.

    observations from last season

    -- way too many contestants. only a few should be selected to play.
    -- ho-hum and often obscure round themes
    -- the prize wasn't planned, and this time i think something special and interesting should be rewarded to the winners
    I like Edahn's idea... let's do it survivor style... that way we can narrow down the field.

    Each round we throw out a percentage of the players. That's done by voting... All contestants must vote... but they cannot vote for themselves. Spectators can naturally vote. Teams/players with the lowest number of votes get eliminated... and we go from there.

    Team captains... let people create their teams... then they can choose to have a captain or just somebody as the contact for the team.

    I'd like to participate. I don't mind being a captain. I didn't really understand the way th first one played, and I'm not reading through 234320-92342 pages to find out, but I'm in.

    I think the judges for vote. They can make it uber-dramatic.

    With that avatar, Kyueii makes a convincing argument for herself.

    And leave out the scheming and plotting? That's the most entertaining part in reality TV... *sigh* Oh alright...
