No Survivor Pickem?
« on: February 01, 2003, 01:11:34 PM »
There was a message on the message board that said there would be no pickem for this season.  I have already emailed Yahoo and have not gotten a response as of yet.  

Here is the link to complain or ask questions.

Wow, I can't believe that.  When they wrote me they said it would be closer to the air date, they didn't say anything about not having it.  I hope they change their minds, I sure would miss it, I have been playing that one ever since I started watching the show.  I will write them again and see if i get a response.

Yahoo is beginning to really really suck! They have done a lot of stupid things before, but this is really dumb.

I'd give yahoo a bit more time... they are usually one of the last ones to set their game up... usually only a few days before the start of survivor.  I think the messages over there are just jerks wanting attention, however, I don't know that for a fact.

I think for the last two seasons Yahoo had the game set up within a week of the players being announced.  But I am not giving up until Yahoo actually announces that they are not going to have the game.  I am still hoping that they will have the game.

I got an email from one of the Immunity Island people.  I think I am going to email all of them and tell them to come to the board and join the survivor challenge and pirhana challenge game.  

Hope that is okay.

Copied this post from Yahoo's main board in the Pickem game.

Tim,

Yes, the Yahoo Pickem game will be discontinued for the sixth season. It is too early to tell whether we will start it up again for the seventh season, but we're closing it down now due to lack of interest and resources. The message board should be shut down by the end of the week.

Yahoo Games is planning a dramatic shift in design and playability which we believe will be a positive change for our users. More info on this will be available soon.

Thank you for your interest.

Yahoo TvGames Coordinator

Well hopefully some of our friends from the Yahoo groups will come play some of the other survivor games with us.

Theresa (aka Granny T  ;D) you are welcome to invite your yahoo group to the board too!

Now I'm reallllly confused.  Just read over at The Alliance board by a post from Cyber Joe Cool that the people over at Survivor Sucks like to mess with our heads.  He says that this guy Antithesys is a poster over there and we should be weary of what he says.  I guess we will have to wait and see.

Mama...

Antithesys is an Admin at survivor sucks... he only messes with people that are messing with him or the board. (and does a pretty good job of it) When it comes to spoilers and/or other survivor information, his stuff is almost as good as snews....

So maybe his post is true?   :o  I knew he was a biggie somewhere as I have seen his name before.  Well, I think it would be a shame if they don't have the Pickem game for this season but then maybe they will come back bigger and better for Season 7?

I would say that there is a real good chance of it being true.  If anti posted they were not gonna run the game, then I would be fairly confident that they are not.

Dang, I really like that game.  I sure wish they would have it.  I don't believe there is a lack of interest at all.  I think someone is just to lazy or too busy to do it.  Oh well can't cry about it, I will try my best to get into one of the other games.  I will invite all the people that sent me email addys to the Survivor Challenge game and to this board.

Hi all
Theresa invited me here from her yahoo group. It was a great
group of people. I think yahoo missed the boat on this one.
Sounds like a fun group of survivors.  :) Lets go girls!!

Glad you decided to come and join us Laurie.  We are a small but friendly group.  And we have a seperate part for spoilers if you do not want to know about them.  I hope you decide to stick around.

Do not forget to come join the silliness at anything and everthing topic.

Hi Laurie :D Welcome to our home away from home.  ;D

It's sad there will be no pickem this year :'(  I've been in the pickem since the beginning.  I've made lots of friends over the years and a few have joined here as well.  We are looking forward to playing My Piranha and Survivor Challenge.  You should join us!  If you are looking to play an individual game I can direct you over to Survivor Blows for Spoiler Island.  They don't let you create groups or teams in that one.

Hey everyone, Theresa told me about this group and I joined since no Yahoo Survivor. I guess we have to remember that we get what we pay for! Sad case of reality for reality fans!

I have been reading through the posts, though it is a little different than what I am used to. Sure hope I can keep up.

It is allot different here Gumlog, it took me a while to get used to it, but after a while it is sort of nice because you can see the other posts when you are replying and none of the posts disappear.  

ANyway, stick around and I am sure you will get the hang of it.

Welcome gumlog! :) Take your time and look around ;) We are a chatty bunch ;D

I'm very upset about them not having the pickem as well.  Over the seasons I have met lots of great people in the pickem rooms.  I think Texan and I have actually been in some of the same rooms for several seasons.  I started in the Pickem as Bronx Chick.   That was before my daughter was born.  Now, most people just call me Mama.   :D

I'm kinda disappointed that pickem won't be here this season too... I did really well in that one last season (until my last picks that is)... oh well, hopefully I can do well on the others this time...

There's a similar game at  http://www.survivorvi.com
You get 10 points to put on up to 2 players, or, you can put it all on one, or, you can just use a portion of the 10, and the remaining points go on to the following week.
The points add up fast though!
I'm in the Shultz league if you want to join, as Telaria.
BTW~now, you can "Book a Suvivor" for your next event!
