First Ballot Schedule
Okay, let’s get this rolling.
Let’s open the 1906 polls from March 30 (a Saturday) through April 6 (a Sunday). My fantasy league, of which I’m the commissioner drafts April 5, so I’ll be busy inputting rosters, moves, etc. on the 6th and 7th, but I should be able to tally the ballots by April 9.
We’ll then reopen the polls for 1907 on Monday the 14th, and get on a one-week on, one-week off schedule, generally voting Monday-Sunday. Does this work?
I need suggestions for how to structure the discussion threads leading to the first ballot. Should I reopen the old threads? Organize them by position, etc? What would you like?
The ballot structure we decided on was:
5 electees: 24-23-22-21-20-15-14-13-12-11-10-9-8-7-6
I think this is the schedule for electees that we agreed on:
Then from 1918 through 1975 we elect two candidates per year. The year we “catch up” to the expected number of HoMers is 1955. Keep in mind that we will be 18.9 candidates behind when we start, plus we should be inducting 1.26 new per year at that time.
From 1976-83 we alternate between 3 in even years, 2 in odd years.
From 1984-95 we elect 3 candidates per season.
From 1996-2008 we elect a 4th candidate in “leap years”.
Starting in 2010, we’ll alternate between 4 in even years, 3 in odd years.
In 2014 we’ll be at 4 every year, except leap year when we’ll elect 3.
We’ll stay with that until another expansion throws us off, but earliest it would change an election would be 2019 (assuming expansion next year).
Here’s a link to the thread discussing the Constitution.
Let me know what else we need.
We’ll be voting through the yahoo group.
