Sign-Up HQ (all Sign-Up Vacancies and Information here)

Recommended Posts

What do I do with this thread?

This thread will become the HQ of all sign-up information. In here you can find a list of currently active and recently finished sign-ups, as well as advertise vacancies in your own sign-ups. If you have a sign-up on the list and you want to change its description or any other facets of how it is entered, please post here also. Feel free to add a description of your own, and post it here to replace the one I made for your sign-up.

Some of the sign-ups on the forum have ratings, in particular those of a high calibre which people are inclined to rate rather than run away from. If you want to have your say in these ratings, follow this link to see how you can rate threads. It really is as easy as 1, 2, 3. In fact, it’s only as easy as 1 and 2. If you want to get a rating for your own thread, copy and paste this into one of your sign-up posts:

[noparse]Are you enjoying my sign-up? Please give it a rating![/noparse]

This will link people to the above link so they see the instructions for rating threads. If your sign-up gets a rating, feel free to post in here the rating you wish to have attached to your thread in the sign-up list. A sign-up needs 10 people to rate it before it receives an overall rating.

So, to summarise, use this thread to:

  1. Discover new sign-ups to read or join
  2. Advertise vacancies in your own sign-ups
  3. Add your own sign-up to the sign-up list

You can also suggest changes or corrections for the narrative body of the thread, such as adding your own tips for running a sign-up or a definition in the glossary. I will endeavour to respond to posts as quickly as possible.

If you want to see your sign-up altered in the list but do not want to post here for whatever reason, feel free to PM myself or the moderator dafuge to do the editing. Please do this sparingly and use the thread whenever possible.

A guide to the sign-ups

Sign-Ups = ‘Where people sign up to become part of an interactive FM story or experiment’

2010-07-19 Another quick update

2010-04-13 Updated to reflect the most recent changes. Threads sorted by rating, then by number of posts as of today.

2009-12-14 If you fancied a quick read of some sign ups, here’s a list of, hopefully, all the ones that are currently running. Because a sign-up with free spaces is going to be more useful to you than one without, if you’re looking to participate rather than read at least, the ones with slots still available are listed first. Following this are ones that are in progress, ranked by their rating and then by their number of replies as I write this (this isn’t just because this method turns up my sign-up first). Finally, there are completed and defunct sign-ups. All sign-ups are run on Football Manager 2010 unless otherwise stated, although it is generally irrelevant what version of the game a sign-up uses. Those in this list have an activity of the last 31 days, that is, any sign-ups listed here have been replied to since 2009-11-13.

Author: neurospasm

Title: (WIP) 2010 Counties League

Author: Lenzar

Status: Abandoned

Description: The Welsh league has realised that it will never be as popular as the English one, so in a bizarre move, offered the English the chance to fill their neighbour's league with English counties.

Forumer = A real person posting on the forums

Forumite = Their digital incarnation in Football Manager (the -ite suffix is a good way to remember which is which)

Completed Sign-Ups

(Credit to Greasy Chip Butty for the idea of putting this here)

Have you ever been reading a sign-up and then bam! You've caught up with the present and there are no more updates? You'll have to wait to see how the player you've become quite attached to will continue to fare. Perhaps it might be a better idea to read some of these completed sign-ups. As running a sign-up can be very taxing, it isn't extremely common for them to reach their conclusion. These ones have, and many have won awards, so you know you're going to be in for some good stuff.

These sign-ups are sorted by the date of their finish, from the most recent to the longest ago. All of them either reached a conclusion as stated by the author, or lasted for a large number of pages (something around 7 or more).

Author: Whoopy D

Duration: December 2008 - February 2010

Description: Not all footballers are superstars, so Whoopy D captures the essence of football: its uncertainty, in making all the entrants have a completely random potential and ability. Basically, the aim was to have fun and sign off on a career to be proud of.

Title: The Joys of Versatility - From the Deserts of Djibouti to the International Stage

Author: LokedOut420

Duration: December 2008 - October 2009

Title: The Inevitable Domination of Mediocre European Football Clubs (as well as awful Puns)

Author: PaulHartman71

Duration: April 2009 - August 2009

Awards: Best Standard of Sign-Up Updates, FM2009 Awards; Nominee, Best Sign-Up, FM2009 Awards

Awards: Best Sign-Up, FM2008 Awards; Nominee, Best Sign-Up Idea, FM2008 Awards

Title: The Race for the Whitehouse

Author: canvey!!

Duration: December 2008 - May 2009

Awards: Best Sign-Up, FM2009 Awards

Description: With the big Presidential election and the chance to finally oust George W. Bush, 2008's political year in America was so special it deserved its own sign-up. 14 forumite managers joined up to manage teams in the MLS. canvey!! then followed their progress using written reports, where each manager was a political candidate whose home state depended on where their club was. The managers, split into Republicans and Democrats, toured the US in primaries, where they had to fulfil different tasks each time. There were also Guest Speakers who talked on political issues. In the end, a forum wide election saw the CSE President ascend to power.

Awards: Best Sign-Up Idea, FM2008 Awards

Description: In the style of the hit BBC TV show, canvey!! invited 20 forumite managers to try out and become an apprentice to a well-known football manager. Instead of Sir Alan Sugar, England manager Fabio Capello was doing the hiring, and, task by task, the stockpile of managers decreased until there were just two left, one of which was hired, and one of which was not. Touted as one of the best début works ever, this makes an interesting read.

Title: The All American Managerial Contest *Where Block Voting is highly encouraged*

Author: PaulHartman71

Duration: May 2008 - August 2008

Awards: Nominee, Best Sign-Up Idea, FM2008 Awards

Description: While short-lived, this sign-up in its day had flashes of brilliance. Forumite managers took control of North and South American countries and, in the style of the Eurovision Song Contest, allocated points to their competitors based on a season's performance. Everyone wanted to do well, and everyone wanted to pick up a good share of the 12 points going. Everyone, of course, wanted to avoid the dreaded nil points.

What tips are there for running a sign-up?

Running a sign-up isn’t always easy. You need to dedicate a good amount of time to it to make it successful. Maybe once or twice you can get away with letting a sign-up fade into obscurity, but generally those who sign up are disappointed by prematurely-ending sign-ups, and if you do this too often be cautious of being reviled by people. Here are my tips for running a sign-up.

  1. Think first how long it may take to run a sign-up. With this in mind, plan the number of people who can sign-up. If you will be providing screenshots of each forumite, you might want to minimise the number of members. Consider future events that might get in the way, such as examinations, coursework and holidays.
  2. With this in mind, set a public schedule and stick to it. Not only does this stop people pestering you asking when the next update will arrive, it will help motivate you and result in you planning your time better.
  3. Try and make it original. If you have an idea come to you at 10:00pm, perhaps sleep on it to develop it. You may want to use the ideas thread to gauge popularity and originality.
  4. Be nice and explicit. When posting a sign-up form, make sure everyone knows what is required to fill it in. It also helps to write some introductory paragraphs, and it helps me when writing the guide! Also, if you want users to email or PM you, make sure they know how.
  5. Play a test game. This is really useful in finding out any errors that could arise.
  6. Be prepared to be a little bit harsh. If you have set a sign-up limit and it is important to you that that limit is not breached, yet you have an extra person, do not be afraid to say no to their entry. If you have a user that is not posting, if it complements the updates, it may be a smart idea to drop their character from updates, perhaps reminding the user first.
  7. If you intend to abandon the sign-up, let your users know why. It helps to get some closure, and who knows, you may even get some sympathy.

----------------------------------------------------------------

What tips are there for taking part in a sign-up?

While it seems silly to suggest tips for taking part in a sign-up, it is not uncommon for people to disregard basic etiquette when taking part in sign-ups. These are as important as tips for the running of sign-ups.

  1. Post regularly to show your enthusiasm (but don’t spam). Also, if you will be away, inform the sign-up runner so that (s)he can plan accordingly.
  2. Just because this is the internet doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be appreciative and courteous. If a sign-up is particularly bad, offer constructive criticism or don’t criticise at all. However, it is very easy to see past the façade of some “constructive” criticism, so even if it looks constructive, consider how it is delivered before posting. Also, when making requests, don’t be rude. While please isn’t always necessary, thank yous are generally warranted.
  3. Provide all the information the sign-up runner wants in the sign-up form. If you don’t, (s)he may not be able to start the sign-up as planned, and could drop you from it. If you do get dropped from a sign-up, respect the sign-up runner’s decision as that decision is final.

Right, I've reflected those changes - sorry it took me all evening but to be honest I've just discovered you can share photos on Windows Live Messenger so was doing that all night!

If anyone else has any changes they want made to the list, in such a manner, please just post here.

So I'm allowed to advertise vacancies here? Great! :)

Although, looking at the post count already, it may appear that my sign up, A Trillionaire's Playground, is reaching or has reached capacity, this is certainly not the case. There are in excess of 150 spots still available with another week in which to apply. Although I neither any hope nor intention of all being filled before I offer second teams to already established thread followers, it would be nice to have as many different people involved as possible. So come see what all the fuss is about! :)

(Oh, and thanks to canvey!! for both making this excellent thread, and advertising my sign-up without even my awareness!)

Oh yes.. :p

There's 208 countries registered with FIFA, and there'll be a club for each one. So, since only 40 spots have been filled so far, that leaves a large proportion still available. I never had any hope of it being completely full though.. :)

There's still plenty of space in my sign-up here. It's basically an experiement where forum users "sign up" as AI managers.

The reason I'm doing this is because I want a game that holds my attention for more than 2 seasons, and this might be it, I don't mind spending a little time editing to get that, and giving you guys a little something in return in terms of a game and a TBA scoring system.

A shortened sign-up form is in the quotes below, but the full one is in the thread.

Name:

Date of Birth: (Ideally so you're between 33 and 45 years old):

Nationalities:

1st Choice Club/Nation to manage:

2nd Choice Club/Nation to manage:

3rd Choice Club/Nation to manage:

4th Choice Club/Nation to manage:

5th Choice Club/Nation to manage:

6th Choice Club/Nation to manage:

7th Choice Club/Nation to manage:

Languages Spoken:

Skill Level (1-200):

Preferred Formation:

Second Preferred Formation:

Any particular style of play you would tell your team to play? (Short passing, long passing, attacking/defensive, wide/narrow, man/zonal marking, counter attack, target man/playmaker, fast/slow tempo etc. etc.)

Any particular manager tendencies you have? (Sign a lot of youth players, spend your entire budget on one player, sign domestic based players etc.)

There are currently vacancies in The Afrovision Managerial Contest. Read the opening post for full details, but the basic idea is that 53 managers will take over the nations of Africa and results will be used to allow users to vote for their fellow nations in a Eurovision-style final (including semi-finals). The sign-up is open, which means that you have until 9:00am GMT on Sunday 21st February to sign up, and then I will choose 53 managers from all that have signed up.

My Top2Bottom sign-up needs two managers to take over two clubs. One is Saffron United and the other is VfB Rammstein for those that know/find out who they are. I'm going to explore what can be done with FMRTE to let you edit the teams (not sure if you can rename the teams, edit managers etc) although the playing squad will not be changed as we are already into APril of Season 1. If you are interested, please PM me ASAP. Probably take the first two to PM unless I don't consider them reliable.

EDIT: Got two now and a standby if needed so don't PM me now. Sorry if you were interested!

The Afrovision Managerial Contest (see three posts up) has at least 19 vacancies remaining. Signing up will close at 9:00am on Sunday, and if 19 people sign up before that, it will not close early - I will always choose the best 53 sign-ups from the entire lot.

Okay, we still have four spots. If you really want me to sell it to you, apart from the fact that it is a great idea and will probably be adorned with all kinds of beautiful graphics (well, one kind of beautiful graphic), I have a track record of delivering good sign-ups. See 60 to One, El Aprendiz: Tú eres Despedidos!, The Race for the Whitehouse or The Apprentice: Football Manager Edition if you need any more convincing. To be honest, I am shocked that gathering 53 sign ups has taken so long.

If you are reading and you run your own sign-up, could you please recommend me some reliable users from that to invite to the sign-up? I really need these last four spots filled!

And I promise I will update this thread sometime next week. The 15th is looking the most likely date, exactly 2 months on from the last update.

Okay, I have updated the list for March. There are a couple of sign-ups started yesterday that don't seem to be getting off the ground yet, so I haven't put them in for the moment. There have been a few additions and plenty of sign-ups moved to the Recently Ended Category.

As you can see, in Post 3 is a list of completed or substantial sign-ups. At the moment, that just includes ones that have been present in the past three awards ceremonies. If you have completed one and it isn't in the list, can you please suggest it below and I will add it in. Feel free to write your own description for it if you want, but you don't have to, as I am perfectly willing to do that.

Sorry all, yes Return of the Fafeful was abandoned because of problems with the edited database...

I am going a lot simpler with my next effort, it will be the holidaying and totalling up a points system only.

So the Commonwealth Games Sign-up has up to 54 spots remaining. I am thinking it may be best with just 20-30 entrants, but I am willing to accept an entrant for every single Commonwealth nation if we can get them.

Changed - thanks for telling me - usually I have to scroll through the thread and then guess whether it is abandoned or not :). And it moves 60 to One up one place in the order :D.

Added :thup:. Good idea, too.

Avoid the Drop with Nigel Quashie - Sign Up still has a possible 16 places left, ive set a deadline for wednesday 10pm for people to sign up.

Basically you create a player, he then goes to a crappy club predicted to finish bottom, and he has to help them survive. So the "winner" is the person who never gets relegated.

Even if you get relegated, im still going to follow the players as a normal sign-up.

I've got four places available in the Afrovision Managerial Contest. Don't worry, you don't have to read the whole thread first to take part, although it shouldn't be strenous reading and has a nice amount of graphics and tables. All you need to do is state your interest in this thread or in the Afrovision thread itself. I will then PM you a little form to fill in, places will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, providing the applicants are suitable. Obviously if you are already in it then you can't take a second place.

The nations available are (you don't need to pick one yet):

Burundi

Guinea

Guinea-Bissau

Libya
