Now, one thing I'd like to see, which would be a major overhaul so is not likely to happen, would be to have the standings page update in real-time. Basically I don't want to have to wait 5 minutes for StatTracker to load in a separate window. I know it's a minor thing but I check the standings every day, and I imagine a lot of people do, so it adds up over the course of a season. It's enough of a hassle to deal with stat tracker that I just completely avoid it most of the time. Maybe something to just keep on the back-burner for the future.
And I mentioned this a couple times earlier in the thread, but having conditional FAAB bids is important for a serious league. This is how I explained it last time:Skin Blues wrote:If I want to add two players, I'd need to have the claims for the second guy be conditional. ie:
Bid $3 on Edwin Jackson dropping Jake McGee
Bid $1 on Tommy Hanson dropping Jake McGee
Bid $1 on Tommy Hanson dropping David Hernandez
And so on, for maybe a handful of guys I'd like to add. The way it's actually set up, I can only make one claim for Tommy Hanson. So if I want to bid on Hanson, I have to commit to dropping Hernandez. But I could very easily still have Jake McGee if somebody else outbids me on Edwin. I can't possibly imagine this is by design. Will it be changed any time in the near future?
This would be pretty easy to implement, and seems to have been an oversight when the system was designed.
re: the standings page updating
It is more of a performance issue. For any one person it would be easy, but in volume it would be a large challenge. But we like those; it is on The List, and something we'd like to get to
re: conditional FAAB bids
So at some point I *know* somebody on our side went to implement it. I really thought he was done. So when you raised it, I started doing homework to figure out what happened to that feature. But I got pulled back onto other stuff before I figured it out.
