If you are getting NO responses to your invitations, then be sure you have followed all these steps after you have actually CREATED a team:

1. Go to Free Agent Pool
2. click each of the names you wish to invite
3. Click "Add Selected Users To Your Team"
4. This should return you to your Team Creation Page and the selected users will be listed.
5. Manually add anyone you wish to invite who is NOT in the FA Pool to an empty slot on that page.
6. Click "Save Team Configuration"
7. You will get a new button called "Send Invitation Emails": hit that one and it's done.

If you are expecting an invitation and think you haven't got one, your mail may have redirected the notification. Go to the DPL Home Page from the Menu Bar and select "Join a Team". If there is an invitation outstanding for you, it will show up there. Captains, you may want to PM your invitees to make sure they understand this.

Thanks, Robert.

For the record, I was one who was leaving out a critical step. Bear helped me out and now we're rollin'. Good luck to everyone else who's trying to form or join a team. May we all have FUN!!!

Now that Bear is an admin, we are hoping to hold DPLs more regularly. It would be unfair to your team if you couldn't participate for the first month.

I would think it wouldn't be a big deal if she's on a 6 or 7 person team and would be up to the team captain and the other members.

Hi Niall!!

Hi wendy!

Doing the math, we have 16 finalized teams and 5 partials needing 10 players to complete them for a total of 21 teams. 27 players in the FA pool, meaning that after removing 10 from the pool to complete those teams there are 17 left over to make 3 additional teams - which is more than enough.

In other words, we now have enough participants to make this work, we've just got to herd the cats.

Um, "Whoo-hoo?!"

Okay...... I need 3 more for my team so who needs an invite??? PM me and Iíll invite you
06/13/2018 01:01:27 PM · #190
On the finalized teams page, why does the average percentile only show for 3 of the teams?
06/13/2018 01:26:28 PM · #191
Well as much as I understand, the taste of rejection is bitter at best. Good luck to the Too and may the force be with you.

I have sent out a few more invites and I hope to field our team yet. Just need one!

I was asked by a teammate - are the challenges still going to be 2 weeks in length or are we reverting to 1? I can't find anything but I assume it would stay the same, so technically we'd be shooting for 2 matches at once with 4 challenges active.

That's correct, we're going back to 1-week submission periods for the DPL challenges, the Sun/Tues grouping. The Thurs challenge, which doesn't count for DPL, will remain at 2 weeks. It was just too mind-boggling to figure out how to reset the schedule for 2-week challenges, so we didn't do that. We think 1-week challenges are better for this league anyway, more of a sense of urgency and immediate results.

There will be a thread posted early next week covering this sort of stuff, so it will remain fresh in peoples' minds as we launch.

We aren't going to get to 24 teams unless some of the teams of 7 cut down to 5 ... am I the only one seeing this? Some of the people on that free agent list obviously aren't going to participate.

Is there a plan in place for when (not if) this happens?
