Bank account details, credit card number and pin, birth certificate, passport, driver's license, mother's Maiden name, name of your first pet, first car, origins of your family (specific country or race) and the street you grew up on, right? That should be everything.

We need a 7th BOG member again - you guys know the drill. Get your name to me if you want to run and I'll release the poll on Monday for everyone to vote.


TML_Sage is a progressive thinker that will only ruin V4, as he did with V3.

In v4 vote someone you can trust, like Brett.

Brett for BOG Member.

Might as well just put Brett in as a BOG member. He wants the position and offers some honest perspectives.

+1 for Brett


I'm very flattered by both your endorsements for the open BOG position, BUT, let's not forget I was in that position once before and for whatever reasons it rubbed people the wrong way. So much so that people threatened to quit the game unless I was removed.

So that brings up the question.....what's changed? In my most sincerely sarcastic voice I ask this...isn't the BOG supposed to consist of enough young people who have to deal with high school or university and routinely need to focus on exams and personal life which causes them to quit because they can't dedicate the time it takes to oversee various aspects of the game?

I mean, why would anyone want to have a mature BOG member who has the time and ability to dedicate to the game? I'm more than understanding that others don't share my views on some things, honestly that's just an age gap issue. The problem is, young people are less willing to take the time to listen and try to understand someone else's viewpoint, whereas I've shown nothing but respect to all those in the game much younger and in fact make an outgoing effort to try and understand the lingo and other things so I feel like "one of the gang". Isn't that right SNACC smile

And that brings us back to the open BOG spot. I had my name in the hat a couple weeks back when a spot opened up. Thinking I came in 2nd in voting. I'm not going to beg for the position, but I'm also not going to overstep by repeatedly hoping people vote for me. I've pointed out errors and helped in small ways without being "on the board" and no matter what will continue to do so. But perhaps it's someone else's turn to be on the BOG....until life gets to hectic and they have to step down smile smile smile

NO. I understand we are allowed to do them, and the BOG will let us know when we can post them to our team pages

We only have 5 BOG members now I believe (unless Tony is still in the BOG even though he left as a GM). Is there going to be a vote?

Doesn't sound like it. Plan is to run with the 5 and see how it plays out once the season begins

Happy v4 Day! If you check the rules doc, you'll see that we upped the trade limits: 6 per month, 10 in March (for TDL), and 20 in the offseason (now til Aug 31st).

Busiest teams so far are Boston, Carolina, and Ottawa, each making 2 trades, plus Boston also made an expansion deal with Quebec. So, you could even say they made 3.

Actually, speaking of this, do expansion deals count toward the trade limit?

Any trade that involves a moving contract counts as a trade.

any conditions that were in place before may 10th that are satisfied in real life will affect v4. The BOG will try our best to follow along, but it will be up to the affected GMs to bring up the details on these items and ensure that the conditional results are satisfied.
