Met's been out a ton recently. I have been super busy, Treat's been busier than normal, Jimbo hasn't been around GT as much lately.

Yeah, I guess that is right Jose. Explains a lot of it. :-D

GT always slows down when the season starts. Besides who wants to talk general when we can finally talk football after all these months? ;-) :-D

The site has slowed down I think, not significantly at all, but very slightly.

I have evidence of Matchup Meltdown participation at least: I made a post early last year, Buffalo loses to Miami which cited the number of Matchup Meltdown participants. 232. This year we've got 212 I think, down 20, not bad but not great. We should grow not decrease! Bunches of people who visit this site never even see the games either, I know I didn't till my 2nd season here\ so that's not accurate of site participation but whatever. :-b

Well, if there is a decline or lack of growth, I think improving our rankings section could help. I think one of the main attributes of a fantasy football site that people look for are the rankings. 2 main things stand out with the cafe's rankings:

1) We don't have an overall ranking section that ranks all positions together
2) the individual rankings we do have haven't been touched since June 22nd

Granted, we also have some nice mock drafts, but even the most recent mock draft occurred before pre-season games even started. Considering most people don't even draft until a week or two before the season starts, I think improving the rankings section, keeping it up to date and then promoting it as a staple of the cafe would be quite beneficial. Just a thought.

:-?

By rankings, do you mean player rankings? We do those every week - Start/Sit. On top of that Pat does his Defense Rank Thingamajobber every year, and he even started it this week (a week early) to account for demand. I don't see the benefit of one lump ranking for all players after the draft. Do you use that, and if so what do you use it for?

Otherwise our Rankings section is also updated weekly, but with NFL Team Power Rankings instead of Player Rankings.

I'm talking about a first time visitor clicking on the rankings section, seeing that it has a June 22nd date and then leaving before they go any further. I'm not saying that's why I come to the cafe, but I think addressing this will help get new traffic.
