I'm not one to go in for all this cricket team draft stuff but it's proven very popular amongst many people, both regular CC'ers and non-. In the last 10 months there've been 23 threads on the matter. I'm guessing, given how long it's been going on for, that it's something that is going to be continuing for the foreseeable future - I presume people enjoy doing new versions of it.
However, I personally find it rather annoying to have the threads clogging-up CC TBH - I hope others who don't take part feel the same. I've asked the question before over whether a subforum could be created for the exercise - it's always been pretty offhand because the scale had still not built up very much, but there are more and more threads all the time. Please could some serious consideration be given to a subforum? We had one for the Predictions League, which seems a similar exercise to this draft lark - a CW game that is quite popular among the masses.
It'd just seem to me to be the logical way forward, if this is something that's going to last as long as it is doing.
