This Wednesday, October 26 CSFBL be offline at 3pm for site updates; we are hoping to be back by the 6PM EDT sims.
There are two big elements to this update.
In the continued effort to add flexibility for league creators, changes are happening to what we can do with division and conference structures, and playoff formats - along with recent additions to schedule options and making it easier for teams to move from one conference to the other, the building blocks are there for thinking about new leagues, and we'll continue to build on this more.
For now, admins will have to create leagues with different conference/division structures than the typical 2 conference, 2 divisions per conference structure.
Playoff format can be changed anytime, and will go into effect the next season – setting available to commissioners on League Settings page.
Choose how your league would like to display player actuals and potentials, including options for numbers and letters, different ranges, and different levels of precision. If you want exact information on all players, or some level of imprecision - those controls are in leagues hands now. Options for different ranges also available - if you prefer the MLB 20-80 player range, we have the technology.
More Detail on 'Range' options:
1-100 - Current CSFBL range
20-80 - MLB style scouting range, 100 in the current settings maps to 80 in this setting, and the rest are scaled down from there. 10-90 works the same way, with slightly large range.
Ratings Display format can be changed in the preseason - setting available to commissioners on League Settings page
More Detail on 'Precision' options
1 – Accurate rating
5 – Rating rounded to the nearest 5
10 – Rating rounded to the nearest 10
Example – A player with an 83 in Power.
1 precision – PO 83
5 precision – PO 85
10 precision – PO 80
All of the above league options should be visible on the League home page.

INTERESTED in starting a league with some of these options, or have others in mind? Talk to us about your ideas for league options and we will see what we can do. Some things are easier to accomplish than others, but we are putting together the building blocks towards more and more flexibility, and want to build things that users can build with.
