Team a has their player available all week and team b doesnt, team b has their player all second week and team a doesnt. Both send default info. Team a sends two days worth of effort ie messages, posts cause they werent allowed to swap, team b sends 7 days worth of effort. How does the default get settled? More effort by team b so the majority of the points or a draw as it should be?

I know what it should be but I also know what it would be.

scrap the 5 day pointlessness!

The 5 day is FCL not FBL and it won;t be removed. I am lowering it though Five days was the number given by the person that though of it, after having it for the last few sets it seems to be to long.

i don't mind the restriction if it includes captain agreement as it got brought in due to tactical subbing but if captains agree then that takes the tactical subbing out of the equation.

Good Morning FBL Clanners!

Not that any of you missed me lol but apologies for my absence, just had a busy couple of weeks, some scouse tramps moved into my house and I couldn't shift them (mich, emmajane, chisisidovev)

Anyway, I have implemented a "chat" function on the FBL website so we can have live discussions on the upcoming season, might be easier than posting on here, we'll see, so I shall be on it tonight from about 8PM should anyone else want to join.

All you need to do is enter a username, preferably your funkypool ID, no password needed, and the chat room must be changed from "Lobby" to "FBL" or you won't get in to the room.

http://funkypoolbilliardsleague.weebly.com/chat-and-polls.html

Alternatively if you don't want to use the chat function, then please start posting your ideas on this thread so we can start planning for next season, if you don't post, your ideas cannot be considered!

Give me your thoughts on, bonus points, completion points, scoring system, rules, format, anything!

Do I post my idea for new runners here or on the site?

There are no new runners, I am the runner, you can post them here for the time being.

What's the difference, ppl write on the League Discussion thread and most the time get an instantaneous reply. Sometimes ppls ideas are good and if more people took a step back and thought about them than make a rapid reply then Leagues may have benefited by now. There's already a chat room, just my opinion.

The difference being, some people browse on their phones and cannot get onto the server, this allows those people to get involved, it also means that only the people who have an interest in clans and read this page can access it avoiding the usual chat room dwellers that contribute nothing.

The thing with the forums is you could be writing an essay of a message a miss a good 5 posts in the time it takes you to write it.

If you don't want to get involved in the chat room, then you don't have to join.

Agreed there are chat room dwellers who contribute nothing, the point about writing your message and missing 5 in the meantime, that wouldnt bother me as id consider (at that present time) what I were trying to say as more important.

It sounds like it's another chat for Clan Members only which in return alienates those who aren't, the clan members are dwindling as it is. Couldn't the normal chatroom say be taken over (in a way) say for 1 hour or two to solely discuss Clan issues but not neglecting others?

lol im very sure that she was not asking for opinions on the new chat feature. That's on her website and wont be removed. She wants ideas for the league.

Windows phones don't neither unfortunately but there is a newer software being tested atm, so fingers crossed it will be available soon. Just to see what this is all about.

MY GOD ITS DEAD ON HERE TONIGHT!!

Some changes I put forward for discussion...

- scrap individual win bonus, bring back overall win bonus / draw bonus
- might extend the lifted restrictions to last 48 hours of the fixture instead of 24 hours
- lift all time restrictions on sub/swaps apart from implement a "no swap reverse" element, where we avoid this constant back and forth swapping and reversing
- increase swaps to 2 per fixture instead of 1, this may help people get games played

any others or comments on the above... just trying to start things off...

Also thinking of putting it back to 1 division and having everyone play twice instead of once so a sort of home and away thing

that depends on the number of clans that enter the league, cause if we have 11-12 clans that might take 6 months to complete a seoson. and i am in favour of 1 division

I'm all for 1 League, 2 proved pointless in my opinion as the mini-leagues only consisted of lesser teams, well that were meant to had been the case but Untouchables proved, without much difficulty if you sign all the great players then winning a little league ain't impossible. (Well done to them)

How about all the teams still play each other once and subject to the amount of teams that enter, only the say top 6 (half poss) advance to a second visit? Top 6 will all be entered in to a mini league.

Making fighting for position that little more important than just adding a team to the league itself.

Also another idea how about points awarded for run out(s), golden breaks, after all most the time these are accomplished through skill not just pure luck.
