Was looking for fantasy hockey engineering forum but alas.
Can we please adjust our playoff settings to create a two-week championship round (combining weeks 23 and 24)?
There is no option to do this despite popular support. Why?

Ditto this request-I have wanted a 2 week championship for years!

We have an 8 team league that plays each opponent exactly twice in the first 14 weeks. With the addition of week 18, we would like to have the semifinals remain in week 15 and have a two-week championship cumulative round in weeks 16 and 17.

People have wanted this for years. Fantasy Baseball Championship should last 2 weeks. After playing for 6 months, 1 week is not enough to determine the champion. There is too much luck involved. The last week of the season is filled with players sitting or missing starts because most games are meaningless at that point. A 2 week championship helps reduce those issues.

2 week championship for fantasy football, either start playoffs a weel earlier and have championship week 15 and 16 or week 16 and 17

I see that Yahoo automatically made Week 24 into a two-week final (3/26 to 4/7). However, this includes the last week of the NHL season (first week of April).
Can you please include an option to change this? It would be preferable to allow league owners the choice on when they want their two-week championship because my league wants a two-week final but for it to run Week 23 thru Week 24 (3/19-4/1) in order to avoid that first week of April when NHL teams begin to rest or shut down players.
Alternatively, you only provide a two-week championship option when you select to begin playoffs in Week 22 rather than the Week 21, Week 22, Week 23/24 format I've suggested.
It would be a simple change, just write the code to include a separate option on if leagues want a two-week championship round. If Yes, they can select which dates and then the playoff format can adjust to that selection. Or include a few different default options like you do now.
Week 24 runs for 13 days this season.
