Who's Da Boss 2009 - General Discussion

Well, I got all of one reply to this the last time I asked, but I don't want Who's Da Boss to die, and I doubt any of you do, either, so here goes:

I don't have the time or resources to take Who's Da Boss off of Livejournal, at least not right now, so Who's Da Boss 2009 will run largely the same as 2008. I want to know the following things:

1) When does everyone want this to start? Have we been overloaded by 2008, and don't want to start until the New Year, or do you want it to run a little more like the original Who's Da Boss and start in October or November?

2) What are we going to do about recruitment? Ideally, I'd like all of last year's 20 or so regulars to be back, and for them to all bring in at least one more person. I don't know if we'll be attracting regulars from the past again, but there you have it.

3) When we have a more firm start-date, I will begin taking suggestions for seeds. So far I've only come up with a handful, but I haven't really started going over the seeds properly. Since we are continuing here on Livejournal, we will not be reusing seeds, as might have been the case had we been switching to a dedicated site.

Please, respond this time! Who's Da Boss doesn't run without participation.

1) I think we should wait until the new year. It just makes more sense to me to have the entire fight in the same year.

2) Maybe have some banners that people could put in their profiles?

I agree with both of these.

Recommendation: Banner contest, with winner getting some bonus, like a entry into the next whosdaboss

I'm fine with starting up again whenever, and I will try to harass my one other friend who regularly uses LJ to participate.

1. New year. One reason is to build up tension and pimp-time, another is to bask in the glory of wondie's victory.

2. I pimp to all of my internet friends and a lot of people I know in real life. I am going to lean harder on some of the nerdier ones.

3. Ok then. If you end up with a list of previous contenders, I'd appreciate it if you'd send it to me; I have a lot of them in a spreadsheet (ok, mostly just 2004&2005), but not all.

Yeah, new year sounds good! I will start thinking of seed suggestions. I'd love to have a neat whosdaboss banner in my userinfo, especially if it features CW, GB, MPF, and WW.

I'm fine with starting up again now, if you have the time to organize. Elsewise January.

Recruitment is difficult because of the lower number of people who use LJ. Perhaps a way of linking from Facebook?
