Discussion in 'CPL Cricket' started by Athlai, Jan 2, 2019.
CPL on CW is currently going through a draft. A good sign?
I'm not keeping my hopes up until simming starts. And even then it's very plausible that Cribb just loses interest.
Be interesting to see how many people a future CPL can get. I'm assuming most of the 12 involved would be keen. Probably around 6-7 lurkers here and maybe a few more if Cribb asks around. Maybe like 20?
The good thing is that I'm automating so much of it as I'm going this time, so as long as it starts there's a bit of a failsafe built in (unless cricinfo drastically change their site again -- we were pretty much ready to go December 2017 before I had to re-do everything). It won't require such a mammoth effort from me in future, especially if someone else wants to sim and just wants the database.
Haha yeah I was talking to Athlai about it earlier and we were kind of working on 20.
Most of the people in CWPL have CricSim accounts (GoodAreasShane actually joined a couple of weeks back), as do Vimes, GIMH and Zorax who were interested on CW and missed out.. and over here we had Prez and Heath express interest. The Gamblers blokes I talk to on Facebook might be interested too.
Yeah I assumed Gemmell, Jules and Benny would be in. Don't know if any other league posters would be keen though. I know pretty much everyone with a decent post count could be easily contactable but it remains to be seen of people's energy to do so, lol.
I don't know if I really follow cricket enough any more to get involved.
Pah. CW. More important is whether Cricket Archive can be accessed in some way that makes it usable.
It's not unless you buy it. crichq.com has stepped up to provide largely functions though.
On this, the people involved last time:
In bold are those involved in the current CWPL, italics indicates those who have expressed interest and missed out or have done so here.
Plus Callum who withdrew and a few others on teams (remember this involving Gazza, Teacups, Weeman, hen and no doubt others)
He saw us talking about it on CW and thought he'd check it out, I guess. Probably wasn't aware how dead it was.
Yeah, I'm alive. Sort of.
But what do you average in the Bannerman Shield?
Just like this forum!
Don't be mean to him I'm sure he has more life than this forum
Me, having an actual life?
Yeah not really
Welcome aboard, you'll fit in just great.
