Annual Select Auction / 2022 Horses Consigned
« on: August 19, 2018, 03:31:49 pm »
Final Furlong hrses have been consigned. Bidding starts on Sept 1. :)

The script is pretty basic and set everyone's reserve price to be the same. This has no bearing on the (perceived) quality of the horse.

General/Questions / 2022 Racing Challenge
« on: March 07, 2018, 02:35:21 pm »

So, every team now has 6 horses - 2 2yos, 2 3yos, and 2 4yos.

Same general rules apply as in previous years...
- Teams will need to pick a location (first come, first served, no duplicates across CW teams)
- Majority vote is required to enter a race
- Captains can enter races
- Horses running while injured will be penalised
- Captains not entering races that have been voted on (unless the horse is entered in another race or is injured) will be penalised
- Team/member activity is judged on how often your horses race
- Points are earned based on how well your horses do, with extra points being awarded/taken away if other CW-owned horses are involved (e.g. beating another CW-owned horse gets more points than beating a regular game horse)

If you have any questions, post here.

Enjoy, and good luck! :)

Annual 2yo Auction / 2022 Auction
« on: March 04, 2018, 11:39:30 am »
Due to me accidentally wiping the auction horse list for the 2yo auction while trying to fix the insta-sale problem, the auction has been delayed by a week.

I was able to re-add the horses who'd had bids placed on them, but had to re-use the auction consignment script to fill the rest of the auction. Apologies if a horse you were planning to bid (or sell) is no longer in the auction. Owners, feel free to consign your horses in the next week if you want them to be in the auction.

Bidding is open - kind of forgot to post this. ;)

Mix of older geldings (no reserve), and older mares who won't be sticking around in our broodmare band. A couple of the mares have reserves, but most do not.

General/Questions / 2020 Results (Finally)

General/Questions / Anyone want to manage Stillwater?
« on: March 02, 2017, 09:20:56 am »
I'm realising that I've been really lacklustre about managing my ponies this year. They've all been running, but I've missed a few race days entirely, and they're not getting the attention they need.

Plus (and this is the big thing), I want to devote FF spare time to working on the beta...otherwise it'll never get written. (She says...6? years later...)

So, would anyone like to manage the barn of 253 (at current count) racing ponies? If so, please PM me. Happy to work out payment of some sort (FF cash, possibly ponies, whatever floats your boat). I may be able to take back over sometime this year, but I'm not counting on it.
