Site Rules Updated
The Site Rules have been updated. Most of the changes are simple clarifications of existing rules, such as:

  • The minimum age to play Sim Dynasty is 13 years old.
  • Only one account is allowed per owner.
  • Restrictions on profanity, personal attacks, etc. extend to all communications (team notes, trade notes, player names, etc.), not just forum posts.
There are a couple of genuine "new rules" but these are essentially extensions of existing rules:
  • Being generally obnoxious is now against the rules. We had rules against attacking other players, profanity, or disrupting the league, but occasionally someone would work to find the exact spot where they could hover just out of range of these rules and still cause others grief.
  • Although we allow multiple owners from the same IP address (family members, co-workers, etc.) within a league, we will no longer allow owners from related addresses to vote on each other's trades and we require that real-world relationships be disclosed in the league forum.
Please take a moment to read the site rules as your coninued play represents your agreement to follow them.



Forums Back Online
We have setup some basic forums at forum.simdynasty.com. If you cannot access them, log out and log back in and your message board account will be automatically created and/or updated with your new password.

IMPORTANT: Jim Brown and Franco Harris League drafts delayed
We had a bug preventing a lot of people from logging on to their teams. We normally test code for weeks before we put it online but we haven't had that luxury recently. The JBFL and FHFL were due to draft tonight but since so few have been able to get in I am delaying those two drafts for a day.

Commishes: Log in for other owners
Commishes can now log in as owners of teams that are for sale. You will find a Log In link on the League Info page. Again, this has not been as rigorously tested as I normally like so you may run into pages that say you aren't the owner. If this happens, please create a support ticket.

Statement on the Outage
We E-mailed a statement on the outage to all users. If you missed that statement, it can be found here.

Update on Site Outage
We'll continue to post updates at simdynastynews.wordpress.com.

Server upgrade complete
The football server upgrade has been completed. Morning games have run and the logs look good so we have re-opened the server. Hopefully this will resolve the problem with maintenance running into late morning every other day. Part of the cause of the maintenance issue is game by game stats piling up for leagues with long histories, so I may have to start purging the game by game stats for long-retired players and condense them into season by season stats for regular season and preseason games. I'll post more on this as I analyze performance of the new server.

In-depth look at the Fatigue changes
The way Fatigue and Energy recovery have changed is big enough to possibly impact your substitution strategies. To learn more about the changes, please see this thread on the subject.
