The compost bucket returns

Welcome to the The Environment Leagues, a new team formed from the old Art and Mystery Leagues to give downsizing fighters the great feeling of a new start.

The team has a modern, theme: sustainability and anything that works as a solution toward making our one Earth last a little longer. It also has a 21st Century feel with an external style sheet and a div-based template. Of course there is no substitute for voting tables.

I do things a bit differently than most other team leaders. You will notice your spirit points are a LOT LOWER because I use a system based on a Sample SD system with SD standing for standard deviation, roughly the average of the difference between all fighters competing at the team round. This keeps any fighter within the team levels from swamping her competitors.

Also, as you can see below, this team puts its fighters awards on the front page for all the world to see. I want visitors to know that we take care of our fighters here, and there are usually prize challenges that lead to earning SD rewards.

We are on summer break. With luck and if my fellow facilitators agree, we'll be back in early September. Have a great summer. It's been wonderful, and hopefully it will continue to be wonderful.

Endurance International Group, our former host's parent company, nearly killed this competition, but you can't kill family, and four intrepid souls, want to keep this place going so they and four others can fight. It doesn't take a crowd. It takes persistence and faith. We are keeping both of those.

If you have any comments, complaints, praise, need a leave of absence, or what have you, I am just an an email away.
