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!
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!
In addition, if you purchase 2 subscription teams in a given week, we will credit your account with 50% of the initial cost of a subscription team. If you purchase 3 teams, we will credit the full initial cost for one of the subscription teams. Just create a support ticket to request your credit!
Games behind after outage
We had a brief outage today that prevented games from running for about two hours. Thus, most leagues are behind schedule. I have to go through them one by one to get them back on track; please be patient while I get all the leagues caught up. Thank you!
In the past the Dynasty League end of season schedule has been manually posted in the forum. This has led to times were the posting of the schedule was not consistent. We have automated the schedule now; it will always be on your Help menu under Dynasty Renewal Schedule.
We are continuing to fix broken subscriptions; we have to wait for them to fail at least once to get the information we need to fix it. I have tried to proactively fix those I can identify, but if you have canceled your subscription in the last week or two, you may have slipped past my radar. If you get messages that you haven't paid and you have an active subscription, please send me a ticket.
Access to old forums and U2U
Prior to September 2017 we used a different forum; the messages archived in this forum are available to view via the old forum browser The old forum browser does not support all of the formatting options the original did, but it does support attachments and display polls. In addition, if you have a highly formatted post you need to move to the new forum, there is a "View BBCode" link so you can view the post with the format codes intact, making for much easier copying. You also have access to your old U2U box. It is read-only like the rest of the browser, but you will have access to the messages at least.
Merged League History
For merged leagues, the following changes have been made to make it easier to access historical league data:
Changes for February 2018
A couple of changes have been installed.
Changes to the Dynasty renewal process
We have made a couple of changes to the Dynasty renewal process. If you have marked yourself as Renewing, we will give you a few days grace after the deadline to renew. Before this, you had to mark yourself as Leaving and notify Admin that you actually intend to renew. After five days, if you still have not renewed your team may be listed for sale.
If your team has been listed for sale, and you have the credits to renew, you can go to the Renewal page and remove your team from the sale list by renewing for next season if it's not too far past the deadline.
Blocking Trade Proposals
As a group, we tend to have a good group of team owners who get along well. However, on occasion we do find that some owners find trade proposals from particular owners an annoyance, either due to the quality or quantity of the offers. If there is an owner you do not wish to trade with, go to your Help menu and select Block Trades, and you will be able to enter the name of the owner you do not wish to trade with. Trades will be blocked in both directions; existing trade proposals will be unaffected.
If you don't want any trades at all, you can disable trades from all owners, again in both directions.
Note that these settings are system wide, not just for this league. So if you block trades with SampleOwner, you won't be able to trade with SampleOwner in any baseball league.
You can, of course, remove trade blocks that you have initiated. You can't remove blocks set by other owners or by Admin.
Site Rules Updated
The Site Rules have been updated. Most of the changes are simple clarifications of existing rules, such as:
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.
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.
