    The contest sign up thread is open.

    The post count required to sign up has been raised to 50 this year.

    What was the post count requirement before? And how much fallout was there because of it?
    just curious...

    Is there a list of who the fallout was and a comparison of how many posts they had?
    Just wondering if the bump from 25 to 50 is enough...
    I am very much data driven, so that's why I ask. Not trying to pry or stir up anything.

    Honestly many of us wanted it in the hundreds just due to being burned year after year of at least one team member signing up and then not being active at all. If you desire you can count up the contestants which signed up each year and I'm sure someone can say when the minimum post count became a rule and see if there was any drop.

    Also no worries, lot of time before sign up ends and you'll hit 50

    It would be interesting to see if there is a pretty consistent point at which "contestants" fall off based on post count.

    As I mentioned in another post, I am not worried about hitting 50 one way or the other. I am just super stoked to be getting into the hunt game period. I keep having to put myself in check because it is a hobby after all, and hobbies are expensive...and I do not have an endless budget HAHA.

    It's usually directly correlated to a few factors
    1. Your team sucks and doesn't talk
    2. You got your buck and doe
    3. You are not a talkative person
    4. You are mathematically out of the contest
    5. Family stuff

    6. A disproportionate number on your team live in the South and hunt public... Oh wait, that's just me.

    Understatement of the year :lol:

    For those new to the site, this was our team avatar a couple years back, "The gut pile" :lol: Can't believe I actually searched for it

    Motion to ban "The Gut Pile" as a team name and that image as an avatar. The image at the very least. :throw::bash:. We need a vomiting smiley. Shouldn't be that hard considering the laughing and spitting beer one. If only a mod was around that could help with this.

    That would take an Admin, not a Moderator.

    In the meantime, just use some GIF skills:
