if commish (me) accepts a trade in yahoo...

Postby bluefire7 » Tue May 24, 2005 4:51 pm

someone offered me a trade, and i want to accept, but in our league, we said that each trade we would wait a full 3 days for the league to see it and approve or veto it (1/2 of teams disapprove = veto). if the 3 days are up, i just allow the trade.

if i accept the trade now, does that mean i am accepting it and it immediately goes into effect or does the 3 day waiting period apply and THEN i have to choose to allow it (umm.. again)? sorry if this is an ubernub question, but this is my 1st time commishing =P :-B

Its 2 separate choices - If you accept you will have to go into the trade again and allow it - so no worries about looking unfair

You still have to approve the trade.

I think you're asking a technical question on whether it will still go into pending for commish approval? If you are, the answer is yes. After commish accepts a trade, he still has to approve or reject it, just like every other trade.

not exactly sure how it works on yahoo.

it is probably two separate choices. if it turns out, however, that you accepting a trade automatically aproves it, then all you do is post to the league board explaining the situation and offer to reverse the trade after three days if enough people veto.

If you accept the trade, the league will get 3 days to veto it or not, and after the 3 days, the trade will automatically be official, there is no second approval.

Rirruto is correct. It will say something like, "if this trade is accepted it will be reflected in your lineup on..."

After you make the deal, sit back and three days later it will all be taken care of.

Actually if he has it on Commish control, which it sounds like he does, then he will still have to go in and allow the trade to go through if there are not enough votes.

I for one would much rather have it on Commish controls whether there is a voting process or not. It gives you more control of different circumstances.
