  2018 draft thread
Posted by: Barrel - 20-11-2018, 10:15 - Forum: Richmond Ramblings - Replies (25)

Only a couple days away now. I have a feeling we'll trade up on the night using a future pick or two.

On another note I see we are likely to sign Mav Weller directly to the rookie list by using a new rule that prevents going through the draft process. Now its hardly inspiring signing delisted saints but I've always thought he was a decent player. At the very least he provides cover for some of the depth we lost and for only a rookie contract. Im okay with it.

  Cal Twomey's Phantom Form Guide: September
Posted by: Ned - 13-11-2018, 09:21 - Forum: AFL General Discussion - Replies (2)

Reposting this article from the old site:

[Image: thomas130918.jpg]

THE END of the season is nearly upon us, which means most draft prospects have completed their campaigns.

This makes it an opportune time to release our third Phantom Form Guide of the year. 

It is a ranking of the best players in our eyes and not an indication of when the players may get drafted or where father-son or Academy bids could come.

The Phantom Form Guide will be updated again following next month's NAB AFL Draft Combine.

As mentioned in my last post on the site:

I am aware that some members of the site have voiced their concerns about the number of times that I’ve changed the software that runs on this site. I have made no secret of the fact that I like Yellow and Black to use software that I can learn from and perhaps use elsewhere.

With the forum software used by the now old site (Discourse) I dad to admit that I’d bitten off more than I coukd chew, that’s for sure. While I believe that the software itself is superior to other forum software that is currently available; for a ‘tinkerer’ like myself, it was driving me crazy! There were restrictions on many aspects of the software and I am unfamiliar with the programming language - Ruby on Rails - and even less so when it comes to the ‘container’ on the server in which it runs. The software doesn't even have a setting for closing the site!

Needless to say, this had reduced my enjoyment of the site as I no longer had the same control. I have tried offering to pay programmers to migrate from this forum to other software. The response is the same - it’s too difficult and nobody has ever moved FROM Discourse rather than TO Discourse so they aren’t keen to take it on.

Things to take into account with this new software:

  • 2018 posts won't be found here. I'm working on a way to get a read only or to migrate the discussions.
  • Your E-mail address is the same as what it was before the last software move. I'm working on updating them, so if you don't have access to your old E-mail address, send me a PM with the details and I'll fix the issue.
  • I'm working on the colour scheme Smile
  • Please don't log any issues (other than you can't login)
  • If you can't login, do a password reset (remembering that it'll go to the last E-mail address you had in December 2017). If all else fails, send me a message
  • Enjoy!
