I can't speak at length about why the previous solution went away, but I don't think it comes as a surprise to many people here that it was very error prone and increasingly unstable. I think when the dust clears, most of you will actually be much happier.

Gravatar isn't a pain in the buns if you already use it, which a ton of people actually do. Without it, there would now be no way to have a custom image at all. And as the league note mentions, you'll soon have another alternative, and I can say that one won't require any sort of new registration.

Genie, do you have any info on the Grandal/Ruiz not being in the player pool problem when using the "Wait Until Called Up" setting?

It would be neat if a Commish had the ability to unlock certain players, like Grandal/Ruiz, like they have when they can force a player to be available when they are on waivers.

I was just able to do a mock and it opened automatically for the first time this season. If a change was made it appears to be working. I'll do a couple more tonight so I'll see...

I confirmed today that was a known bug that has been fixed, but I didn't think the fix had been deployed yet. Maybe somebody decided to force that fix out.

And yeah, I later confirmed that we did make a decision to push that particular fix out without waiting for a regular release.

Different question about Mock Auctions. Any possibility of decreasing the pick time in mocks to 15 or 10 seconds? I've never had a mock auction go longer than 2 or 3 picks per team because they just drag on so much. I think people just want to get in and see what kind of prices players are going for, and making the whole process quicker would allow for deeper mock auctions that actually get to the important later stages where bargains can be found.

Minor issue I know, but I think it'd be a nice change.

edit: A weekly IP limit in H2H would also be great, unless our commish has been lying about being unable to implement this.

Question regarding weekly lineups. Our commish has them set for "Weekly on Sunday". Am I correct that with this setting our week will run Sunday-Saturday? The lineups would lock before the Sunday games splitting weekend series into separate fantasy weeks?
