You submitted your picks after week 1 had already started, so they didn't count.

So I guess if we didn't make picks in week 1 or 2 then we're out of the competition? :-[
I should've checked these things out before the season started.

Did you even read the rules page??? Just kidding. :-°

You're safe to play.

Bye Weeks and Safety Weeks

Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you simply can't get online to submit a prediction. That's what the bye week is for: each player may miss one week of the season, and will still be able to make the same number of predictions. (This also means that players may join the game after weekend 1.)

The first week a player misses counts as a bye; any further missed weeks will count as safety weeks, in which players automatically lose half of their remaining predictions, rounded up.

Example: In week 6, you still have 7 predictions left, but don't submit any predictions. Your bye week goes into effect, and you'll still be able to make 7 predictions in week 7.

If you again submit no predictions in week 7, you'll be down to 3 predictions in week 8 (half of 7 rounded up = 4 predictions lost).

(If you choose the first week as your bye, you will begin the game with either as many picks as all other players had available in week one, or as many games are on the week 2 schedule, whichever is less.)

To take a bye or safety week, simply don't post a reply in that week's thread - you'll automatically be assigned a bye or safety, which will be reflected in the standings.

Yes, I did. That's why I had a question. ;-7 It says if you pick week 1 as your bye then week 2 you start with 25 picks. It also says you have one bye and after that you lose half your picks. If it counts as a bye in week 1 and 2 would I be down to 12 picks?

I'm about 90% sure you would only be allowed to make 15 picks.

Week 1 would have been your bye week. For week 2 you would have had 30 picks remaining. Week 2 would be used as your safety week, in which case you would lose half of your picks (15).

So for week three, I'm assuming you will have 15 picks remaining.

I'd wait for a mod to confirm this though.

Good luck. It's a fun game! ;-D

Oh, I thought you started with 25 picks, that's why I said 12. But yeah, if you start with 30 it'd be 15. I'll wait for a mod to confirm before I make picks though. ;-D
