    There is always time for GT6 after eating Kraft Dinner and drinking my Double Double from Tim Horton's

    At the top of post 1 is the founder's name and the date he officially started SNAIL. Highlighted in yellow, in the below picture.

    At the bottom of the post are links to the answers to the questions "Who is SNAIL?" and the "hierarchy" as you called it, which is a bunch of folks in the Driver's List that volunteer to do the work that keep the league running week in and week out, also highlighted in yellow, in the next picture.

    I encourage everyone to click those links and save them as bookmarks.

    OOwee! And a TOPP too.

    I'm actually pretty low on the Techie totem pole around here. The grand master wizards have essentially retired and those of us still around are just trying to keep the brooms from drowning us all.

    Been trying to get data for D2 entered for 2 hours now. Keep getting distracted. Hell with it. Getting some scotch and a smoke. Be back later.

    My husband loves Lagavulin a Single Malt. His favorite. It was $45 a bottle when he first was introduced to it. It is now $90. Lol. Needless to say is an annual Christmas gift.

    Can you clarify the sentence in bold? The way I read it, it describes what the "freeze" currently does. Or are you saying that he Prize B should not only be able to replace the car or track, but also decide what car or track replaces it? (what Prize B used to be).

    As far as Prize B winners taking a "gamble" on passing the freeze, I think that's just part of the deal. If a Prize B winner really felt strongly about freezing or getting rid of a car or track, then they should use their Prize B to do exactly that. Nobody should make assumptions about something if they're not willing to be wrong.

    Keeping two combos the same every week could easily snowball into the same two combos for two weeks in a row. Then the same two combos for three weeks in a row, and so on.. An integral part of the SNAIL formula is that we change out exactly half of our lineup components every week. Click here for an old post that some more of my thoughts on changing that 50% formula up.

    :pWhat about Prize A changes car OR track from most voted off; and Prize B change the component Prize A did not. Prize C changes EITHER the car or the track for second most voted off combo. :confused::idea::p

    Hey Everyone,

    I wanted everyone to know that I am going to be changing my GTP ID to match my PSN ID. In the next day or so, my GTP ID will change to CoachMK21. I know this will take some getting used to, but I hope it will cut down on some confusion that happens with having different names for each. Thanks!


    PS

    This was my 1000th post. Kinda cool to make 1000 and stop (as KTR5).

    Good thought, but I see two problems with that. First of all, that would essentially make Prize A, Prize B, and Prize C all equal prizes. I guess that alone isn't a deal-breaker, but if the Prize B winner pairs the Prize A selection with a car or track that the Prize A winner thinks is a horrendous choice, then it would essentially ruin Prize A. I guess what I'm saying is that Prize A has always had the ability to choose an entirely new combo and it's worked out out well for the most part. I'm not sure if weakening Prize A is worth doing just to increase the value of Prize B or Prize C. Thoughts?

    First off congrats on your 1000th post.. :cheers:

    I have been wanting to do the same thing! It just makes sense! I have to become a premium member to be able to do so correct? Which I have no problem with, just making sure thats all I need before I upgrade from 87 to 93 octane! So when I make the change, my new GTP ID will be: DCschWinn
    Thanks,
    -Adam aka "DC"

    Thanks to all the stewards who reviewed incidents this week!

    The results post has been updated to reflect the penalties incurred. This results in new prize winners.

    @Dacana and @noseknows36 please make your choices asap. @BayouSimDrifter please wait for Prize B before making your choice.

    What if instead of voting for least favorite, we voted for favorite and that is the only one to remain, and then prize a picks a whole new combo, prize b picks a car or track, and prize c picks what is left? That keep prize a strong with some good influence that is somewhat equal for b and c. Also would create lots of new combos

    Patiently waiting :D

    All this talk of trying to change the prizes is pointless. The system works great for how it is.
