Sim Dynasty
Site Rules Updated
The Site Rules have been updated. Most of the changes are simple clarifications of existing rules, such as:
  • The minimum age to play Sim Dynasty is 13 years old.
  • Only one account is allowed per owner.
  • Restrictions on profanity, personal attacks, etc. extends to all communications (team notes, trade notes, player names, etc.), not just forum posts.
There are a couple of genuine "new rules" but these are essentially extensions of existing rules:
  • Being generally obnoxious is now against the rules. We had rules against attacking other players, profanity, or disrupting the league, but occasionally someone would work to find the exact spot where they could hover just out of range of these rules and still cause others grief.
  • Although we allow multiple owners from the same IP address (family members, co-workers, etc.) within a league, we will no longer allow owners from related addresses to vote on each other's trades and we require that real-world relationships be disclosed in the league forum.
Please take a moment to read the site rules as your coninued play represents your agreement to follow them.

New menu system
For owners using the Dynamic menu system, your menus will look a bit different. These menus should have better compatibility with more browsers and mobile devices. If you have issues with the new menu, please let me know what browser and device you are on.

Mobile Site
The mobile-optimized pages are meant for small screens like phones; they may not be effective on a tablet-sized device even though it will be detected as mobile. The Help menu has an option to ignore the device detection and force the mobile or full site views.

Trouble With Menus?
If you are having trouble with the menus, there may be a compatibility issue with your browser.

We recommend that all users choose either Dynamic Below Ads or Static. You can change this setting by going to Edit Owner Profile.

Additional credit conversion options for Dynasty owners
For those that only play in Dynasty leagues, the recently issued credits are in inconvenient amounts; for example, you may have been issued $10 in credit but your conversion options are for $5.99 or $10.95 for D$500 or D$1000, leaving you credit you can't use. I have added options to convert in $5 increments to make it easier for you to use your credit, and a note on your Renewal page reminding you that this credit is available. Go to your Account page to see your credit. You can use the credit conversion page to convert to Dynasty Dollars if needed.

League Boards Now Available
The first time an owner accesses your league board, the new board will be created automatically.

Outage Credit Issued
All paid users have been issued site credit to compensate for the inconvenience of the outage and recovery. You'll have $10 credit if you have ever paid for a team, plus $5 for each active paid baseball or football team (active meaning you are less than 10 days past your expiration date, or in a current Term or Dynasty season). Go to your Account page to see your credit. You can use the credit conversion page to convert to Dynasty Dollars if needed.

Forums Back Online
We have setup some basic forums at forum.simdynasty.com. If you cannot access them, log out and log back in and your message board account will be automatically created and/or updated with your new password.

Statement on the Outage
We E-mailed a statement on the outage to all users. If you missed that statement, it can be found here.

Support
We are in the process of replacing our forum software. If you need to get in touch with Admin for anything, please contact us at simdynasty.freshdesk.com/support/home.

Update on Site Outage
We'll continue to post updates at simdynastynews.wordpress.com.

Change to Dynasty and Trial minor league system
We are changing the minor league system used by Trial and Dynasty leagues from System 2 to System 5. Thank you all for your input on the subject! Leagues will be switching over across the next 3 seasons; more information and the rollout schedule are in the News forum.

Dynasty League replacement teams available
Interested in joining one of our 3 game per day Dynasty leagues? Replacement teams are now available in some of our Dynasty leagues; see the Replacement Teams Available page for a list. Replacement teams are $12.00, which buys you the remainder of this season and all of next season. The earlier you take over one of these teams, the more play you get for your money!

Temporary chat room available
We are in the process of building a new Chat system. Until that system is ready, one of our owners has set up a temporary chat room. For your convenience, we have linked to that chat room on the Chat page.

Speed Leagues need replacement and expansion owners, teams available for a discount!
We have several Speed League teams that are looking for Replacement and Expansion owners.

For Term League Expansion teams, you will get a $25 discount off of the price of a new team and control the team for about 8 months. You will participate in an Expansion draft that disperses the players to the new teams. For Replacement teams, you get the rest of this 8 month period, plus the next 8 month period for a cost of between $45 to $55. For Subscription replacement teams, you will get 1 month free!

Click here for the current list of teams and signup links.

In addition, if you purchase 2 subscription teams in a given week, you are eligible for 50% off the initial cost of a subscription team. If you purchase 3 teams, we will waive the initial cost for one of the subscription teams. Details can be found here.

Introducing the DynastyBot
For a variety of reasons, we have added an automated team owner called the DynastyBot. You may notice this in some Dynasty leagues this season, or in some Speed leagues in the future. DynastyBot will do some basic team management. For the full details and rationale behind this feature, please see this thread.
