In Topic: AFC / NFC draft?

31 March 2021 - 03:00 PM

We've been doing that since 1985!  System doesn't support it but our players know which teams are in which conference so we self-police.

I had an owner suggest it, and it sounds like a great idea. I have a hard enough time getting owners at the life drat (not online) sticking to position limits so I don't dare try this without the software limiting it

In Topic: Noob to API - trying to access full league report in Power Query

31 March 2021 - 11:12 AM

Noob to API calls.


I'm using Power Query in Excel 365 and calling in reports with xml data source from the URL.


I can't get the league report with Commissioner access.  I see on the API Developers page you can pass a cookie ... I tried to pass it in the url but it didn't work.


Any suggestions? 

Ok ... no idea what my problem was back then. I ran the API with my key and it worked just fine

In Topic: Round Robin Playoffs

31 March 2021 - 10:32 AM

Not sure how common this is, but one of my leagues has the top 4 compete in a round robin playoff over the final 3 weeks of the season. It's been such a hit that now my other league is strongly considering it, particularly given the extra week coming in 2021 and a desire to expand the playoffs from 2 weeks to 3 weeks.


We've had to do it manually, but it would be great if MFL had an option or customization to do round robin / mini-league playoffs.

Good idea. I've been trying to decide what to do with the extra week.


I have a 10 team league, 13 week regular season and 3 week play-offs.


So now I can do a 2-week round robin in weeks 14-15 to determine the top 4 and then elimination in weeks 16 & 17

use developer took me less then 1/10 of a second to find the bg image


body {
    color: #fff;
    font-size: 13px;
    font-size: .813rem;
    max-width: 1160px;
    max-width: 72.5rem;
    max-width: 100%;
    margin: 0;
    background: #333;
    -ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='bg.jpg',sizingMethod='scale')";
    background-image: url(bg.jpg);
    background-attachment: fixed;
    background-position: center top;
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    -webkit-background-size: cover;
    -moz-background-size: cover;
    -o-background-size: cover;
    background-size: cover;

Thanks TOS, obviously I'm new to this. Whenever I upload my modified .css, the background doesn't display. Even when I upload the original Silver_and_Black.css file without modification, the background doesn't show.
