The current minimum threshold to maintain an active league is 10 owners.
Leagues with 10 or more owners, these leagues can sim games and are listed on Active League page.
If a league falls below 10 owners, the league will be placed on hold at the end of current season, with sims paused. Owners will receive notification emails when the league goes on hold, and commissioners will not be able to restart the sim on their own.
If the league returns to 10 or more owners, it will return to active status.
If below 10 owners after 30 days, the league will be moved to the Inactive League page (if 10 or more season played) or potentially Purged (if less than 10 seasons played). Inactive leagues are paused, and do not sim new seasons.
New league creation/mentor leagues are currently on hold as we rework our onboarding of new users, and limited to special events. Read below for details of reactivating inactive leagues.
The activity policy helps concentrate activity on leagues that have user interest, and helps us clean up extraneous leagues/data. We want to encourage the freedom of commissioners working on active leagues, and we will try to work with commissioners of leagues dealing with special circumstances - contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss.
- Extension of Deadline: If there is a reason to believe that activity will increase soon in a league, you may request reactivation for an additional season. If your league is private and you are struggling to get enough owners, we strongly suggest you change to public.
- Leagues with Special Rules: If you are a commissioner of a league that has rules that specifically merit playing under the minimum activity threshold, contact us to find out about possibility of being allowed to run as a unique format League.
- Reactivating Inactive Leagues: If you are interested in reactivating a league on the Inactive League page, you will need to provide a list of 14+ owners committed to joining this league upon reactivation.
CSFBL will strive to store all historical data for active leagues and inactive leagues that played at least 10 seasons in the past.
League data for leagues that move to inactive status before the 10 season mark will be eligible to be purged.
