First challenge is to come up with a team name and a team location.

Both decisions must be unanimous and all team members must vote.

No team may be at the same location, so there's incentive to decide quickly so your ideal location doesn't get taken.

Grace, What are you complaining about? 3 out of the 7 Indigo Team members have not voted as of this moment, including the other co-captain. I have emailed and PM'd them all and still haven't heard from any of them. In fact, one of them hasn't signed on to FF since the end of January.

At this rate, probably the best myself and the other 3 Indigo team who have voted can hope for is that Shanthi reshuffles some of the teams when she returns from Rome and we get assigned to other teams (maybe she can put me on your team in place of the person who hasn't voted yet - I promise I'll vote frequently and often - LOL)

Lol you are more than welcome to join us :) ! Our missing member hasn't signed in since Jan either. That sucks that so many signed in but didn't bother to show up.Yeah both of us have tried to contact her too with no luck, except we didn't have email.

Still two missing players in the Purple camp as well, but nothing to be done about it unless they login until a reshuffle.

Maybe next year Shanthi might want to reduce the sign-up window and make it only a week, running from Feb 9th to 15th. That way, teams that are most currently active will sign-up and there will be less of the "sign-up-then-go-inactive" teams. I know she wanted to give everybody a chance to sign-up but maybe we should concentrate on "Quality" (those teams that are always on) rather than "Quantity".

As a previous Team Captain, it is frustrating trying to chase up your teammates to get them to vote and not getting replies from half of them.

We do have one inactive member, but after contacting them several times and the fact that they have NEVER raced any of their horses, I pmed Shanti and assumed it was OK to post our selections because teams will be being reshuffled.

Shanti, if we cannot make selections until the teams are shuffled, then our selections don't count as we do have on inactive member :)

We had all decided on ours last week by Wednesday too but due to the missing, we have not posted.  Blah, why do some people commit to something and then not follow through? I can understand if life happens, just let someone know, dont just disappear or ignore something. That's just disrespect to the other party/parties, and makes more work for Shanthi.

Yes, sorry, I do want all decisions to be unanimous, so if teams have inactive members they'll have to wait until Thursday when I can shuffle teams around.

Shanthi,

How about opening a new Forum topic for active teams to re-register for the Color War and give us until Sunday to register? We would just need to post that we wanted to take part and whether we were interested in being a Team Captain or not. Then you can redo the Color War teams based on who has posted in that topic.

I suggested this way figuring you would not have time to redo the link you had originally setup on our Stable page for us to register.

White Team has reached a unanimous decision today:

Name: Ghostriders
Location: Gulfstream


Finally heard from our inactive member, who was just sick & having a long week at work.  Hopefully a few other members are able to chime in to their teams as well!

Lewis, I don't plan to redo the link, I'll just shuffle the teams around by hand once I have time. I setup the link from the stable page so that the forum wasn't involved (because then it couldn't be automated, which is the only way I can handle the Color War these days).

So, judging by the reports of inactivity, of the 74 CW members, 18 are inactive. That includes quite a few captains.

So I think I'm going to scrap one of the teams entirely and shuffle everyone else around, so that we don't run out of captains/members. I'll post once I've got it figured out.

Shanthi,

Five of the original members of the Indigo Team had voted before the reshuffle and we now have two new members. Do the original five have to vote again or do their votes carry over to the reshuffled team?

Yes, I left your team as-is because there wasn't any inactivity. So you still get first pick.

Are any other teams still having problems getting their teams to vote on Location and Team Name, even after the reshuffle?

The Indigo Team has two team members that have not voted yet.

One of them hasn't logged in to FF since Feb 28th, but, while the other one has been pretty active on FF (she joined FF in Racing Year 2011), she only has 3 posts total and, as far as I can see, hasn't posted on the Forum since Mar 6th.

The rest of us are unanimous on our choice of Location and Name but can't do anything about them until the other two have voted.

We are having some trouble with members being active regularly. We all agreed on a track, which got picked before we could claim it. I haven't been able to get everyone to re-vote for a different track..

Just a thought. Instead of unanimous decisions, in the future could a certain percentage be deemed acceptable?

Probably. The main point of unanimous decisions is to make sure everyone's involved on the team. (This is really the only decision that requires any unanimous voting, or necessarily any forum activity, per se.)

I know the teams who haven't reached a decision yet are frustrated. There's not much I can do about that, though, unless I re-shuffled the teams yet again. There's also no huge hurry, since all it does is shorten the racing challenge timeframe.

Perhaps enable Captains to make a poll in the same way that races are voted for? That way, no forum requirement. Maybe first poll have people tick top three choices. Then set up another poll to pick one. Results won't be unanimous (since no one will see how people voted until afterwards), but might get 100% participation.

Perhaps enable Captains to make a poll in the same way that races are voted for? That way, no forum requirement. Maybe first poll have people tick top three choices. Then set up another poll to pick one. Results won't be unanimous (since no one will see how people voted until afterwards), but might get 100% participation.

That would be fine for the rewrite. I don't plan to change any CW-related code until then, though. (Unless there are bugs, obviously.)

Given that it's been almost 3 weeks since the last team got a unanimous vote, for the remaining teams:

If you have heard from all of your team members at some point (since the new teams got setup), you can go ahead with whatever majority vote you have.

I'll aim to setup the racing challenge stuff by April 1 if everyone has a team name/location. I'm moving this weekend so it may take a few days.

We have heard from all but one of our team members. Even though I have emailed and PM'd the last member, they still haven't voted yet. According to the Stable List, the last time they logged onto FF was Feb 28th, so it isn't even that they've been active in FF but not on the Forum.

Can we assume that they are inactive and use the rest of the team votes, in which case, we will be ready to make our selections now?

Thanks Shanthi.

In that case, the Indigo Team selects Pimlico for our location and the name Indigo Ink.

Oops, sorry about that.

Churchill Downs, Arlington, Calder and the two California tracks are still available, plus Fort Erie and the overseas tracks. Fort Erie is in Canada, and only has one or two races a year, but it is probably the cheapest of the remaining tracks for shipping. Of the remaining locations, Arlington and CD are the next cheapest shipping-wise. Arlington has the advantage over CD in that it has more races over the summer.

Hope this is helpful.

As there are only two teams left to pick, may I suggest that you get your teammates to list their first and second choices for location, so that, if the other team selects the location you were all voting for, then you don't have to go through the voting process all over again.

Great, that should be all the teams then. :)

I'll try and get racing stuff setup this weekend (though my computer's in the shop, so it may be challenging).

As you were gone for so long, the teams got re-shuffled and you're no longer on a team. You're welcome to participate next year, though.
