marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!
Anyone want to join the Society?
Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
I would prefer the milestone bonus
And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW
Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
Since it's kk's draft, The rules are his choice. However, I'd prefer it if there was no milestone bonus.
How about decreasing the milestone bonus? 25/50 instead of 50/100?
Not entirely convinced the milestone draft is the best idea personally. Assuming that the 100-point batting bonus includes the 50 points laready given for reaching 50, it still seems stupid that a batsman who gets to 100 and gets out the ball after gets 50 more points than a batsman who loses his wicket for 98. Overall i feel that this should be another very good draft however.
My Supporting XI: V Sehwag, T Iqbal, S Katich (c), K Sangakkara, S Chanderpaul, E Morgan, S Al Hasan, M Rahim (+), G Swann, D Steyn, Z Khan
Yep lets just start this already. Plenty of time to figure out the scoring and whatnot.

BTW there's a typo on the chart, the SR bonus for batting SR < 30 should be '- 40', not '40'.
Sorry, I will correct it.
Also I think its too late to correct all the things. The toughest part will be to COUNT point on daily basis. weldone's draft lost the charm cause weldone could not find the time of counting price of players etc in his draft and we had to end it somewhere in between.
This time I have developed the script which will count ALL the points once I submit the scorecard manually so that will save hell lot of time of me as well.

I'm gonna have to bail from this; might not have the time over the next couple of days for a few reasons.

I actually really like the big bonuses. Partly because they might make the games a bit more exciting to follow - I might care a hell of a lot more about ten Doeschate getting out for 49 against Ireland if he could earn me a bunch more points on his next run.
More than that, it means people won't be tempted to pick bit-and-pieces players in the hunt for all-round points, you'd be much more inclined to go for specialists who can get five-fors or hundreds. Which adds some more interesting tactics to it.
Regardless, we need to get this moving quickly and keep it going, so we ought ot keep the script that's already done.

I think the people not wanting to team up aren't realising how tough it'll be to make regular picks on a 6 hour per pick schedule. You could easily lose out on 3 or 4 good players if you happen to be offline for the duration of your window.
