Has anyone communicated w/ WIS about trying to do something to stimulate more activity in this game ?  Seems to be taking longer and longer to fill leagues.  Any suggestions ?

Cut the price.

Schwarze's tournament, a played out version, summer time, the price of maple syrup, and DEA raids on state-legal dispensaries in Seattle are just a few reasons why leagues are slow filling these days

I'll agree with the impact of Schwarze's tournament.

And the game is played out.... It needs MAJOR updates, and they don't care.   Rumor (I think a reliable one) is that the source code is in an obsolete language that they have difficulty changing and deploying. 

The price, IMO, is fair.

There is always an ebb and flow in filling leagues.

This is the third day that I've had a team sitting in an Open League. When I got it in, there may have been about six other teams in. Now, there are ten others.....

Wow, I thought OL's filled in like two days.

Yeah, it's like The Walking Dead, but if Morgan Jones had cleared the walkers out of town.  I don't get what Len said. WIS told us that what, four or five years ago, they made it so that SLB and HBD used the same basic engine?

Maybe they both use Assembler or some less than widely used language... just talkin'.

I thought admin said that SLB would be moved over to the HBD engine with the next update.  (If I live that long)

Nope, they don't

They tried porting some HBD to SLB and it failed.  maybe 4 years ago.

The redesigned site is supposed to have a common engine for both.  IMO, the interface may be compatible, but the base functions should not be.  There is a very different decision tree that needs to be followed to simulate an AB based on real life statistics from different eras than there is to simulate fictional characters based on their skills.  No insult to HBD, but you don't need to simulate a deadball pitcher with an infield from all eras throwing to a steroid machine

I don't think this is relevant.  In one case normalization is the first step utilized to determine the probabilities of various outcomes, in the other it's ratings comparisons.  But there's no reason the decision tree shouldn't be able to be identical once the probabilities have been generated.

My opinion differs.  Your opinion is just as valid, since neither of us knows for sure.

How about some commercials advertising the site ?  Open with a scene of sexy women holding bats with the tag line "so boys, think you can beat us?", cut to an overhead view of boogerlips sitting in his underware with orange stains at his computer. next to the computer is a bag of cheeto's and large bottle of lotion and with used tissues all around him with the tag line "yeah baby I can beat you!"
