CBS Fantasy Game
« on: January 14, 2009, 12:12:42 PM »
CBS is up and running  :funny:   No really . . . I just registered and am #27 to do so.   Go register before it gets too crowded and make preliminary picks.  You can always change them when more spoiler info becomes available.  Better bad picks than no picks (most of the time).

Lets go for another #1 finisher (congrats geraldford) this season.  We were 2/2 with CBS and Fantasy Survivor last season  :yess:  We can do it again if we all work together.

Going to check out setting up a private tribe.  Hopefully it will be easier than last season!!!

I just started a private tribe - Reality Fan Forum.  Original, I know  ;)  peachy and several others have been sent invites.  If you are going to play the CBS game and haven't been invited but would like to be PM me your CBS username and the email address you used when you started your CBS account.   If you have changed email addresses recently you may need to update your info at CBS.

All I ask is if you join please make your picks every week.  If you can't make them occasionally (emergencies happen, I understand that)  please ask someone to make them for you.   Now lets get this season spoiled and if anyone comes across any wonderful insider info it might be to our advantage to share it through PM's.

29 days and counting . . .

I've had reports of the link in the invite not working.  Has anyone been able to join?  Since just after I sent the invites I have not been able to click into the tribe to see if anyone else is there.  And if I can't get back into the tribe viewing area . . . I can't send out a second round of invites   :funny:  I knew it was too good to be true . . . CBS up and running early . . . without a hitch  :funny:  What was I thinking!!!

I just clicked the links when I got them, got the not available message, and haven't done anything since so maybe CBS is fixed?  :hearts:

You didn't get to a page that said you had successfully joined the tribe or have to enter your UN or anything . . . .  just clicked the link, went to the page not available message and did nothing else . . . and you're in the tribe . . . makes no sense but that's CBS  :groan:  Glad you made it in and to everyone else . . .  keep trying  :tup:

I'm still getting the error message when attempting to join the RFF private tribe.   :(  It's still early, and maybe it'll be fixed closer to air date.  s1 - could you PM me the PW, and I'll try to join the "ol" fashioned way?   

No rules are yet listed, no scoring, but still worth registering your team now, as the grand prize looks to be a trip to Brazil. 

I still have no reply from the last season's prize committee, of who, or if, they awarded the weekly cash prizes..tho' the grand prize and first prize winners names are listed on the fantasy homepage

Hey geo, I'd gladly send you the password but since they changed the format you don't have them anymore.  You just enter a Private Tribe name and then send out the invites with links to the tribe.

New CBS invites have been sent.  Good luck in joining!!!  If you did not receive an invite and would like to join the RFF private tribe at CBS, PM me your CBS username and the email address you used to register your account if you have an existing account or if you don't just send me your email address and I'll send you an invite.

Once again all we ask is that you make your picks every week and try to read our spoiler board.  If you can't make picks occasionally please ask someone to cover for you.

Good luck!!!

scuzneck, I'll resend an invite.  Hopefully you get it today and can join.  Let me know.

Rory -  I'll resend skirk an invite also.  Anything wrong I can help with?

For anyone that has never joined a CBS private tribe since they changed the format here is how it is supposed to work.
1. You get an email invite from the person starting the private tribe.  This has to be sent to the email address you used to set up your account at CBS.  If you haven't set up an account yet when the invite comes in you can do so from the link.
2.  Click on the link provided in the email invite.
3.  You should link to a Register page.
4.  Fill in your username and password and update your personal info.  If you don't have an account already when you fill out this form it will register you to the game.
5.  Click submit/enter (whatever term they use).
6.  You should automatically be placed in the tribe.

If anyone else wants to join please let me know ASAP today or it will be after the 14th before I can send out invites again.  I will need you to PM me you email address you used to register at CBS and your username.

Good Luck everyone!!!

Thought . . . if you've tried to join the RFF tribe and you aren't showing in the tribe it may be because only the first 10 to join show on the page.

Hope Alan got in, :lol:

I can see 10 members listed, I think we had this question last time, are there only ten members? or only ten members we can see?

In any case, you should be able to see if you are in or not by looking at your own tribe list on the CBS page.

All those that I know are in the tribe should have gotten a message from s1 and me tonight, if you are in and I missed you, please PM  me or email me, and I will send it to you!

And thank goodness, s1 will be back in plenty of time for next week's episode! :funny:

And hopefully my power will be back on at home again by next weeks show.  Yes it is out again with an estimate of midnight Sunday.  We had a tornado hit.  I am still in FL and everyone at home is okay with no major property damage but power poles on each side of my house were broken.

 Good Luck tonight everyone and I look forward to being up and running whenever that happens  :duno:

Does anyone know exactly where Reality Fan Forum is on the list??  I registered right after receiving the invite as Rudaaay, & chose my team of 4 survivors, but have never found our tribe!!  (:;)

I just now went down the list through page 250, and from the bottom up to pg 500.  Yikes, what a pain in the butt.  :groan: :groan: :groan:  It takes forever!!  I wish CBS would put in a Search Engine, so we could speedily retrieve our tribe name AND/OR our user name to get our score(s). 
Later....zzzzzzzz

I Love Rudy?? ???  I've never had that name for the cbs game or any game! 

At Lancer's Pick'em, LuvRudy has been my name from the start.  But at cbs my
Username is Rudaaay...same one I used last season.  This season, cbs is letting us use the same name, or so they say!

The email invitation I received from s1 for cbs FS was for joining the Reality Fan Forum tribe. 

I have my four survivor picks and even traded them once before the show started.  But I just can't find our tribe.  :duno:

Hey Rudy, here's the info I have for you in our tribe.  I sent out invites to both email addresses I have for you because I didn't know which you used to register at CBS with.   I have you as joined in the "Reality Fan Forum" tribe under the username luvrudiii (sorry peachy, faulty memory).  If this is the incorrect UN you are playing under PM me the email address you are using at CBS and I'll send you a new invite.  CBS does not make it easy to join but it is better than last season at least. 

I have a temporary internet connection that has very low signal strength as long as I don't move from 1 spot in the livingroom.  Not sure when the new lines will be up and running but this is better than what I had so I'm not complaining.  I should be available to help as needed until they start moving things around. 

 :waves: It's good to be back!!!

Almost 32,000 players this year, compared to "only" 28,000 at the end of last year. 

I think we can ALL bring our scores up, as those who got lucky and picked a good team last week, may not be so lucky this week.
