As a league commissioner, you have the ability to modify the attributes of the league. With great power comes great responsibility. If you arenâ€™t careful, you can make a bit of a mess.
The League Management page is broken down into five sections, three of which are discussed here. These sections are:
Alright! Now it's time to have some fun! This is where you have the ability to modify how the league operates. Most of the fields and options are straightforward enough, but here are the details anyway.
Midnight - 2/day, 4/day, 8/day
3:00 AM - 8/day
6:00 AM - 4/day, 8/day
9:00 AM - 8/day
Noon - 2/day, 4/day, 8/day
3:00 PM - 8/day
6:00 PM - 4/day, 8/day
9:00 PM - 8/day
Note: Your league must have 14 or more teams owned to use the 8/day sim rate.

Once you are done with your updates, click the Update League button at the bottom of this section.
Another gotcha: There are three Update buttons on this page, but each one only impacts the fields directly above them. For example, you will not be able to rename conferences AND change the Sim Rate at the same time.
This isn't the most exciting thing in the world, but here you can customize the division and conference names. Division names are viewable on the League Home and Standings pages, maybe a couple of other places as well. Conference Names are viewable primarily on the League Awards page, and even then, only while the season is in progress.
When looking at the Standings page, the default order is Division 1, Division 2, Division 3, and Division 4, when reading from top to bottom. Division 1 and Division 2 belong to Conference 1, and Divisions 3 and 4 belong to Conference 2.
Coming back to the League Structure section, the fields are displayed as follows, with their references included in parenthesis:
As with the League Name, please behave when renaming divisions and conferences. Once you are happy with your new names, click the "Update Names" button. As with the prior section, the Update Names button will only update the names, and will not change any league settings or ownership.
The Team Ownership section will allow you the ability to modify the owners in the league. Want to replace an inactive owner? Update it here. Have a vacancy? Simply add the new owner here, rather than send the new owner the league password.
The same the fields are repeated 24 times, once for each team. For the sake of space, they are only listed one time on this article. They are:
Team Name, Current Owner New Owner:
This may be displayed back in two different ways, depending on if the team is vacant or not. An owned team will look like this:
Team A, Owner A
New Owner: Owner A
While a vacant team will look like this:
Team A, none
To add or change ownership of a team, simply add the CSFBL owner ID (not the forum ID) into the New Owner field. If you attempt to add an owner who is not a registered CSFBL user, you will get a system error.
VERY IMPORTANT!!! Do not modify any team that you do not intend to change! When adding or changing an owner, change only the owner for that team. Do not clear out the New Owner field for the remaining teams. That will result in the team being removed from that owner's franchise.
Once the teams have been assigned, press the "Update Ownership" button. As with the other buttons on this page, the Update Ownership button will only impact the Team Ownership portion of the page.
