A couple advance notes on the "Slurve lists" -

Hey all -

While putting mine together, I was reminded of some flaws that cropped up when I compiled a similar list of the Fantasy Baseball Cafe a few years ago.  There are a couple things you can do when you make this list that make it MUCH easier for the programmer (Slurve) to process these lists.  The main things is just a standardized format that let's the lists be sorted and searched with the minimum amount of hassle.  Rather than Slurve having to error-check each entry, we can each do it ourselves and save him a tremendous amount of headache.

Slurve, if you don't mind, may I propose the following? *A) List each player EXACTLY like this:

1.  Lastname, Firstname  

(as in EXACTLY number-period-tab-lastname-comma-space-firstname)

B). Use the full name, spelled correctly (watch the Z's and S's on the latin names!)

C). Do not use nicknames.

D). Do not add positions, team names, handedness, etc.*

   

It's a real pain when 5 people submit "El Guapo",  20 submit "Rich Garses", 20 more submit "Rich Garces", and the other 5 don't have him it all.  Slurve has to go thru and fix every one.  Even if it's a global change, multiplying this by 50 players and X number of lists gets huge in a hurry.  That's substantially less time that Slurve gets to play with the results, or to watch "Xena, Princess Warrior."

Slurve, feel free to chime in or replace my proposed standard - I'm just trying to troubleshoot in advance.
