Like I said before, I'm ok with however much money you guys want to donate to me.
$10 works for me. PayPal donation as a gift is the easiest way. $60 first $20 second $10 for third. And if the commissioner takes the miney and runs we're only out $10.
Ok so everyone is up for the buy-in. I think we should just keep it at $10 for this year and we can always raise the stakes next year.
Next up is how to handle the money. I'm ok with that site previously suggested(leaguesafe.com) but it looks like they charge a small fee to withdraw the winnings at the end of the season. I could also just handle it all myself via paypal if that's easier. I'm also open to any other suggestions, though we should get this done quickly so everyone has paid before the draft. Don't want anyone backing out just because they had a bad draft.
My first thought is for everyone to just send me all the money now, and I'll pay out a little to whomever finishes 2nd, but some of you may think that I'm being presumptuous.
I think VJ can be trusted with $100, so why don't we all just paypal him?
I just found the fee schedule for leaguesafe and wanted to inform you guys... $5 for echeck, $7 for rushed paper check, and $1.50 for standard paper check.
I'm happy to handle it via paypal if that's what people want. Either way is fine with me. Majority vote will decide it.
Also I'm leaning towards an 80/20 payout. That cool with everyone?
I vote for paypal as it leaves more for the payout.
Pay pal is fine. Lets keep this 1st and 2nd place only too since we are sticking at 10. My vote is for 75/25 1st and 2nd.
Back the fuck up with this $3 6th place ribbon shit I want as much free weed as possible when I embarrass all you suckers and claim the title.
I commission two other leagues and one of them has guys that like to pay with paypal. I don't mind, but our buyin is $65 and paypal charges me $3 per transaction after the first couple of them. Just check into this before we all start sending money via paypal. I don't know what they would want from a bunch of $10 payments.
Vapor junkie...I'm fine sending you my money. If anyone is uncomfortable with it and would feel better sending it to me since I've been here forever, I volunteer since I already do that shit for two other leagues and have a system in place for it...your call. Not that I'm looking for more administrative duties, but I thought I'd offer it.
And I'm not into third place money either. Honestly, with such a small pot, I think it should all go to the winner so at least one of us comes away with a quarter of dro!
Is it time to talk rules yet, and should we do that on the league site now that everyone is in?
y dont we all drop $10 cash in an envelope and mail it to sticks? if he's ok with that
paypal is fine with me, im also fine with sending the money i trust everyone here...and thats why i suggested the 15$ buy in sticksandstones, for an extra 5$ and with just 1st and 2nd payouts its like 1st wins a qtr and second wins an 8th lol...but it seems nobody else likes that idea so well.
For 10$ buy in id prefer an 80/20 payout but im very easy going so if everyone else wants 1st place to take the entire pot thats fine with me
If you want to talk rules go ahead and start a thread on the league site. I just figured we'd finish the money conversation here since it started here. I'd also like to keep this thread going throughout the season as I just think it will add to the fun
One of my first thoughts about handling money was to have it sent to you(stickstones), Stu, or JD since you guys have been here a long time and can obviously be trusted. Then I thought I wouldn't want to burden you guys with any responsibility in this unless there's a need to. It looks like most everyone will be comfortable sending me the money and I'm ok with that too.
I'd rather not do snail mail. I'd like to get this wrapped up before the draft.
As for fees, I believe there isn't any as long as it's "sent as a gift" in paypal. I've never received 9 gifts in a couple days though. Is that what triggered it in your other league? EDIT: I just googled this and it looks like we wont have any fees as long the money is sent either as a "gift" or "payment owed" in paypal.
I'm more of a fan of the winner-takes-all approach. I'm cool with sending the loot via paypal or snailmail, or that leaguesafe site. Whatever works!
Although, it seems a bit of a waste for me to send it out when I know it'll just be coming back home to daddeh.
I'm wondering what strain I should look for with the winnings... ahhh, such joyous planning. Headband, to go with the sports theme! Alaskan Thunder **** to remind me of how hard I'll be giving it to you droogies? Oh, the possibilities. <cackle>
Vote here for winner takes all.
winner take all just means more money for me so im cool with that
I'm ok with paypal to VJ. Why don't you PM us your paypal and we can get the dirty part overwith.
Ok I'll send everyone my paypal address.
Looks like majority want full payout to the winner. Let's do it!
I'm down with winner take all.
im cool with winner takes all.
I'm cool with me taking all $$. Let's fucking do this, you losing bunch of ninnies.
Edit: Just paid. Locked and loaded.
Paid. lets do this!!
Thanks guys. 5/10 paid so far.
Still looking for payments from 4 more. You know who you are
Edit: Turk has requested to be moved to Indica division. Is there anyone in Sativa that wants to swap? If no one offers within the next day, I'll swap him with myself.
Leave the fresh fish rookie in my division!!! lol
Feel free to move me.
