I can't get to the site at work. Also last night I tried to hit "allow" on the four people that had tried to join so far and it did not seem to do anything. I don't think that is working.

When is the deadline for submitting your roster? Is it still 24h before the start of each meet?

The transfers option will be locked down at: 5/10/2013 1:00:00 PM(UTC)
More generally:
It is possible to make unlimited substitutions to your team up to two hours before the scheduled start of any IAAF Diamond League meeting.

You have to add all 9 before adding them. if you try to do less than that it deletes everyone.

It's 9 athletes in total. One of which is your captain.

Donley2 can change the nameof the league if he follows the instruction I posted below, or at least i think he can. Don't have a league of my own to double check.

Im playing this year but whether i make it to the end is debatable !!

And we still don't know whether they count 8 or 9? This is amazing, the IAAF still can't spell out the rules without confusing us!

If you can all make a list of issues that need addressing I'll email them tomorrow.

1 - Season's Bests
2 - Does lowest scorer get dropped
3 - Correct Meeting records.

What else?

I don't know about right now, but as of last night the "allow" button did not seem to actually add people to the private league. Also can they get the site "categorized". I honestly do not know who does the categorizing, but a web page design savvy person should know. That way I will hopefully be able to get on from work.

Surely the 'allow' button only didn't work if you hadnt added all 9 choices?

Not sure what you mean by the 2nd bit :? Can you clarify?

Would be nice to be able to change 1 or 2 athlete, without every time putting hole team together.

Categorizing is something some companies use to keep certain websites blocked from their company computers. So anything officially categorized as "gambling" for instance would automatically be blocked. In this case the web site is so new it is simply probably not categorized yet. Like I said I don't know who does the categorizing.

I have set up a league for my own athletics club, and half a dozen people have attempted to join, and when I click the 'Allow' button next to each of their names (there is no 'Allow All' button - that would be far too easy/logical), nothing happens.

Unbelievable that in 2013 a major (hah!) sports organisation could design one of its important fan-interfacing websites so poorly. As if it going live only 4 days before the start of the game wasn't bad enough.

Alright, I have finally got a team. My problem before was I was only picking 8, then when I tried to submit the team all my picks got zapped. With nine I had no problems.

Well it is at least good to know it is a problem for other leagues as well. I thought maybe my computer had some goofy issue.

This site is a nightmare. I can't add any team members. Every time I click on a name it just returns me to the top of the screen.

Anyone else having the same problem?

It is annoying that you return to the top but the athletes actually add to your list don't they?

I redid all of mine last night and they added easily enough even though it took you back to the top each time. To make it easier you can shoose to look at the Men or Women separately which at least halves the amount of names you have to wade through.

Some of these problems....it's like it would've *more* effort to code it in such an annoying fashion, than to make it user-friendly.

I strongly agree with this. Especially later in the season when you could actually use it to you advantage if you are one of the leaders.

Yes, thanks, I know.
I just wonder how official results would have been shown (and, consequently, how fantasy points would have been calculated) if, for example, winning HJ height will be 2.30 (real MR is 2.33, MR at start lists - both html and pdf - is 2.28).

Athletes who achieve a Meeting Record will also receive double points in that event while anyone who sets a new World Record will earn triple points in that event.

Another question. Previous years, if we chose athlete who competed in two events, we received total of his/her points accumulated in those two events. Any changes this year? I'm asking because Okagbare is on start lists for LJ and 200m, I can pick her for LJ, but she is not on fantasy list for 200m, so if I pick her from LJ list, will I receive her 200m points or not?

Good question. She wasn't on 200m list 2 days ago.
