    Default Captains

    I figured I'd take the initiative on this one.

    So far there's:

    Nocap
    Trinity
    Noel
    disregard(?)

    who have volunteered to be captains.
    To my knowledge, it hasn't been set in stone how captains will be determined.

    I've nominated Uberfuhrer which potentially gives us five, unless there's supposed to be some kind of lottery or some other method for deciding who's captain.

    There was very much word on what the captains will be responsible for, but in any event, I figure we need to get this hammered out because if my proposition regarding captains was accepted, we can't really progress until they draft their teams.

    So volunteer, or vote, or whatever we're doing.

    Also, figure out what the challenges are. I wanna see a thread containing all the challenges today.

    The first thing the captains will do is submit a list to me with their order preference. In other words, a wish list ranking the 30 players from 1 to 30. After that, the only thing the captains do is relay information to their teams when I have information that, well, needs to be relayed. I just don't want to have a PM exchange with 36 people when time and my laziness are factors.

    Beyond that, they would, ideally, lead the teams to make goals and manage challenges. However, I learned last time that being a captain is not an indication that this will be the case, and it's not even necessary because the Js on the team will step up anyway.

    I guess I'm trying to say that the captains are going to do marginally more work than the non-captains. So it's not a big deal.

    I would like team names to be different this year..

    Perhaps an animal chosen by each team?

    I think an animal should chose the team. So walk to your destination, be it the jungle or savana, and the first animal to maul and/or pee on/sniff your leg will be the team name. It's only fair.

    Understood. And how shall we be making our choices?

    This is what I'd figured.

    So since this issue has been dodged almost the entire time, I'll ask again, are we to build our teams based on personal preference, or do we get to look at what's to come and prioritize based on who's best for the task?

    If it's the former, I don't want to be a captain.

    It would be hard to tell you what's to come when I don't know what's to come.

    So I guess we need an additional volunteer.

    Lol, The Gauntlet, that was, like, an eternity ago.

    You can still do the latter without knowing the tasks based on the kind of things that were done last year.
