    Can I clarify what the admins' job is with the change to the new season. Am I right in thinking that:

    1) Everybody applies to their new division

    2) We accept applications from the top down - ie when the champs are full, we accept those applications, when tier 1 is full we accept all of tier 1 etc.

    3) If we have non-respondents or no-shows, we stay the hell out of the spreadsheet while GC/Jolima move people up as necessary to fill the holes.

    Is that right?

    Hmm so far attempts today to connect to the BB internets has resulted in server maintenance messages or just simply failing to find anything at all. I shall attempt to join my Division just as soon as the damn thing lets me in.

    Yes, except that I'm also staying away from moving any people. :)

    There is a tab on the sheet for Season Status where we can keep track of how filled in the divs are and who is missing. Once the divs are filled up, they can be started. After which the fixtures must be set to match the sheet. It's usually good if another person double checks that they're really right.

    Yeah - try and ensure the sheet is kept up to date. And (VERY IMPORTANT) check that the cyanide fixture order has been changed to match the order of fixtures in the spreadsheet. You can do this by "seeding" the teams, basically you try and work out which 2 teams need swapping to make the fixtures work and then just swap them over. Of course due to cyanide the fixtures don't then update unless you logoff and back in again...

    It was Janek's name, if I remember right.
    I suspect Janek might be back.

    I am confused; the spreadsheet shows several --s and instead of player and team names: Division 1, Division E and Division M.
    Is the spreadsheet acting weirdly just for me or is something going on?

    Er, Div E is because ntw withdrew his team, likewise Div M is because we only have 3 teams in Div M right now.

    And 1 was because for some reason all of the formulas had lost track of the player on the first line. (Fixed.)

    Can we promote someone from below into E, or is it just a case of auto-concede for a season?

    Tried to apply yesterday, but was ambushed by a berserking gang of error messages. Will try again tonight.

    I just sorted that.

    Randomly selected iNinja132 to be promoted up to Div E. Then Kajo was selected to move up from Div M to fill his spot.

    This leaves only two teams in Div M, maybe we'll need some filler but will see once applications start filling up.
