Did you guys see that Fleaflicker has been acquired by its original founder, Ori Schwartz. As of July 22, 2011 AOL will no longer operate the Fleaflicker service.

I am actually excited about the news. One of the reasons I didn't return to the Cafeholics Anonymous league last year was because I really didn't like the Flea interface (as it was when owned by AOL) which was weird because a lot of people raved about how good it was.

Hopefully Ori will return the host to its former glory. Did we find a replacement owner and are we ready to draft at the beginning of July? :-?

Last year was my 1st year with Flea. I liked it alot. The only thing I dont like was the Blind Bid but it was voted in so what can you do.

Alright ppl, seems I sensed a general agreement on the roster changes that wasn't really there. So, we're gonna do this in a methodical, though rapid-fire way. The polls will be open a week, to get through all these proposals.

Poll 1 will be to determine whether there's enough support to change the starting lineup spots as currently constituted. If it passes, further polls will be put forward to examine ways the SL can be changed.

Poll 1-Change Starting Lineup (SL) slots
In favor
oppose


Poll 2 will be to determine whether there's enough support to add a spot to the Starting Lineup. As currently constituted, we start QB, 2RB, 3WR, TE, K, D. If enough favor adding a spot, another poll will open up to consider what types of players can be started there.

Poll 2- Add a slot to SL
In favor
oppose


If enough are in favor of changing the SL slots, then polls A and B will be opened up-
Poll A-Change RB2
No
to R/W
to W/T
to R/W/T


Poll B- Change WR3
No
to R/W
to W/T
to R/W/T


If enough are in favor if adding a slot to SL, then poll C will be opened up-
Poll C- We're adding a slot to the SL. Should it be
R/W
W/T
R/W/T


If you'd prefer different options or more polls, please say so. :*) X-I

To accommodate those on July 4th trips, polls have been extended to early Tuesday (most are very early Tuesday)

Thrity's Special has enough votes to pass. "Add a slot to SL" needs 1 more vote. Change Starting Lineup (SL) slots needs 1 more, too. 34 for the Roster Size expansion needs two.

Draft start time determined by results of polls.

Huh. Hadn't noticed that, since March last year, he's been traded 5 times now. The new Jeremy Maclin?- traded 5 times in 11 months in another league.

I am already starting to see some of the things that annoyed me before with FleaFlicker. With MFL, I get a notice when players are dropped. Not that I care all that much, but it would be nice to know that a manager dropped TE Jeremy Shockey so that I could put him on my watch list if I wanted to. Additionally, while I would only vote to veto a trade if it was so lopsided that collusion was suspected, I had no idea Underpants Gnomes/Barry's Boyz tarde was up for voting until after it already went through. Also, the message board is totally a disaster and just seeing where/when a new message is made is a pain. And finally, someone sent me a trade offer and I had no idea until after several days, when the manager sent me a PM here at the Cafe. Is there some notification setting in Flea which I can configure to be notified of these things?!? :-?

I think there is an email setting. Whenever someone sends me a trade offer it comes through as an email to my iphone, tells me what the offer is, and gives me the link to go directly to it. As far as adds, or drops, anything like that, when I usually log onto flea flicker it'll be on the main page showing me all of my leagues. It'll then put a small red square with a '3' or whatever in it, saying how many new notifications have happened. Adds, Drops, messages, trade offers, etc. Only some of them give me email notifications, but when you check the home page it'll always let you know if there was any activity.


I agree about the message board, it got alot worse IMO. But I have my email routed to my phone, so I try and get board notifications and flea notifications emailed to me so I don't miss out just in case.
