Some personal favorites.
-Roster numbers and roster conflicts. No more signing up known ulti-sluts to your roster to make numbers (Rahil and Hilary sigh in relief)
-Skill level questionaire
-BBS ID is website ID and hopefully registration ID?
-weekly schedule at a glance

This is good work Greg! Hope you didn't have to do too much custom coding from the League Runner baseline?

I really like the "personal Leaguerunner home page", with its list of my recent and upcoming games. If you haven't seen this yet, you're probably not yet listed as being on any team rosters - talk to your captain!

You are right that all systems should (at least according to my testing) be using the same user ID and password, which will (hopefully!) cut down on people signing up multiple times because they couldn't remember their old username or password.

There hasn't been "too much" custom coding so far. The biggest task there was integrating the Post-Nuke authentication with Leaguerunner (which still isn't perfect, but good enough for now). There's a lot more coming down the pike, starting with writing a registration and online payment system by November.

How does the ave skill rating work? Do individuals also get a skill rating?

The first time you click the "My Profile" or "My Games" link in the left menu, you will have to update your personal information. (Please check it over carefully, as our league statistics can potentially have implications on our ability to acquire and retain field space, as well as on our insurance.)

One of the questions in there is skill level. There is a handy questionnaire linked from that question to help determine it. My guess is that about 90% of people will think that their calculated rating is too low; I know mine is! :D

The average team rating is very simply an average; it's very low on most teams right now because people haven't put in their skill levels.

Hanuman, depends, if they weigh blammers highly, then you'll easily get an 8, otherwise... 4

I think my ugly hammer in the Zodiac finals lowered my skill score

Damn! No credit for full field blammers.
Probably just as well... not a game throw :wink:

My only complaint with the new site is that you can't rate yourself as a "12" out of 10 on the skill scale.

Nice work Greg....well done.

I was asking for the "12" skill rating so TUC could properly measure Chappy's immense skills. We all know that lefty's with no backhands fall more into the 5-6 range :)

Being a Lefty is a definite plus in rankings (anything to keep me above 5) cause being a Lefty is like the Spanish Inquisition... nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition.

Ah, Monty Python... so wise.
Winners never quit and quitters never win. Cheaters, however, go on to win home run titles.

Nah Chuck... you hammers just suck - SNAP!
Stick to you deadly low release, break force backhands and roundhouses. :wink:

FYI for those that couldn't understand, the home sideline slag was:
"It's alright. It's ok. You're going to pump our gas someday!"
What was the away sideline slag?.... it doesn't matter what it was!
Yah Home Sideline!
