Recommended Posts

First of love the app.

Few questions.

Can some sort of "shared leagues be created where users of this app can upload their complete leagues. The idea behind this is it could save many many hours on manual input per team.

Is there a way for members to pick a favourite team via their profile, that would like to said football team ?

Any plans on making a sportsbook for virtual currency off the forums to place wagers on admin/mod created matches. I used to have something similar on a different forum software and my users loved it.

 

Excellent great work, i can imagine this took a long time to make.

No sure what you mean.

Not current version. I can add a tab in account settings https://invisionpower.com/settings/ where the user can select the team or teams. But where display that team? Profile? Post bit? Somewhere else?

I didn't work with sportbook. So I need more info how it would be work. In any case I guess it's long work.

Import league with teams, so If i have done the Premier league with all the teams and players added, i could export this list and share with another user of this application so they dont have to input all that data themselves.

No, sorry this was tied into the above suggestion.

Postbit and profile would be ideal. Maybe have the ability to add "fans" to that teams page also, so it count how many users on the forums support that team.

Best way to describe this:

 

Saturday football matches in the premier league.  6 games for example

Team 1 v Team 2 and so on

 

The admin/mod would have to create these events and then be able to give odds on win/loose/draw

The end user would be able to place a wager on this via inforum currency. ( points or whatever anyone uses, i know this would mean that either it would have to integrate with an already exisitn currency, or the application itself would need its own)

End of the day results would be input by the admin/mod and the wagers would be paid out accordingly. I hope i made sense of that.

 

If not i can pm you a link with better description.

Players has custom fields. If you have a field "Field A" with id 1 and someone has a field "Field B" with id 1 the imported data would be incorrect.

Would be better if you to write the exact location.

Now I've added 

favteam.jpg

Under repbar

favteam2.jpg

Under birthday

And account setting

favteam3.jpg

That setting hasn't permissions, so everybody can select a team.

Where to add "fans"?

I also added 

favteam4.jpg

favteam5.jpg

Any suggestions about button style? Color, tooltips etc

event = fixture? Or is this separate item?

Yes. But it's a button. You can add/delete favorite team.

How easily could this be adapted to American football? At a high level, what would it take? How clunky or polished would the end result be? Can things like "fixtures" be renamed to "schedule"?

The 3.4 version was adapted to the NBA and Ice Hockey fairly easily, I imagine its the same for American Football.

All text can be altered by default, you can do this via your themes language but I'm certain Newbie will make any customizations which you may need for this to work.

I am working on this football site http://www.walkingfootball.com/

There are alot of mini leages springing up all over the country

Is it possible and if so what sort of workload would be invovled for members to create and update their leages with results

And can arrange these leages into different categories?

One other question

Is there also an RSS option where you could import league table results and updates from another existing league?

Hi there, I was wondering if there is any chance the app can be geared towards a gaming site.  I bought it and looked around, but can see a lot of alterations need to be added, but look doable.  The crutch though is ability to join teams.  I'll explain what I need and maybe look at hiring someone (or author) to help me out.  

Overall Purpose of the League(s) I wish to operate

- I want members within my forums to able to create and join 5 (or a specific number as max players) man teams without need of administration (if option for members to create teams within a specific league exists when being created in admin cp.  They would need to do so before a predefined "cut off" date.  Else they cannot create a team because system will not allow.  

- Whoever created the team is now the admin for that team.  He can then kick players from his team and can edit all the other stuff like team bio, logo, positions, etc.

- Members who are in that team will appear just as they appear in the forums.  So "ForumUser1" will show up in the team as "ForumUser1" and maybe hyperlinked to their forum profile.  

- Forum moderators or above can still handle the fixtures.  

 

Extra Stuff needed

The rest is mainly cosmetic.  

- Remove "Goal Difference" from side reference

- Change soccer field to something else

- Change "Fixtures" to "Matches" 

**I'm sure there will be a few other things, just the ones I have noticed so far**

 

Would be willing to $$$ for this.

Couple of bugs/oddities as well:

Widget Block of "Tables" when applied to a sub forum also shows in main forum area.  Not good for multiple leagues with their own sub forum:

http://dowrealism.com/forums/index.php?/forum/28-tournaments-leagues-and-ladders/

 

 

Also, the fixture topic and sidebar is having issues.  See images

Sounds like you want tournaments.

Not a bug. All widgets work this way.

I can't reproduce. First was created on frontend. Second was created on ACP.

Thank you, I have started following "Tournaments".  One last suggestion before I leave.  In the "Football" tab and a individuals league Fixture area I think adding option to make that a forum in which members can create topics would be good.  Would be great also for website owners to make a sticky or something further explaining the league.  

 

http://dowrealism.com/forums/index.php?/football/league/1-5vs5-open-invite-ctf-mode/

 

Currently only have option to make another "fixture".

Not sure what you mean. Can you make screenshots?

Hi Newbie, if you click on that link, it basically looks like a forum correct?  It displays the next matches like you would see in a forum.  So suggestion would be to actually make it a forum where you can post threads in it.  Would be good to be able to make a sticky post further explaining that specific league and also double as a discussion area.
