I think you can make all fantasy leagues better by showing the last time a manager was active - for line up changes or add/drops
By showing when managers are active commissioners can message ppl in the league that are not picking up players or changing their lineups. Also for other members to offer trades to people who do not check and have to wait weeks for trade offers. Will help leagues weed out non-active players as well.

if you click on "managers" at the top of the league page, it shows the exact time each manager was last active, down to the second.

In preparation draft do you know how to delete another team? I'm the commish, but don't have the team management section.
Darren Horn commented
Commissioners need a way to address teams that are "abandoned" by their managers. If you delete a team, that will throw off the balance of the pool's schedule for the rest of the season.
What if a commissioner could somehow flag a team as being "abandoned". That team would continue through the regular season, but would not be ranked...so regardless of their record, there is no way that team can possibly make it to the playoffs.
Rather than their team being ranked 9th or 10th, they would be ranked "Not Completed".
That could also be noted on the manager's account so that future commissioners can see if that person has ever "abandoned" a team.
There are two ways to deal with this.
The first is to choose league members more carefully. Only allow proven owners with a history of finishing.
The second part is to pay attention to your league and when someone stops participating replace them immediately. Being commissioner means a little work from time to time to fix things that break.
If someone quits and you can't find a new owner offer the dead team to someone else in the league. If nobody accepts manage the team yourself.
There's nothing unethical about owning two teams if you aren't a ******** cheat trying to stake one of the teams. And owning two to keep the competition fair and competitive is definitely a good thing.

Limit the amount of teams made per account to one.
That should eliminate the annoying managers who draft multiple teams and walk away from the ones they drafted poorly in while playing there best ones.
Should absolutely be done in the fantasy football leagues as well, which are really tanking these last couple years do to no-shows.
Play for money. Charge last place extra $50. Simple
Can you make a page where managers can view all rosters daily on one page? This would be helpful for commish who check for inactivity. Instead of checking 16 pages, I can check one.
Inactive managers suck. Even in my $20 16 team league there are 4-5 guys not setting their lineup. One guy is even going online, accepting trades but not setting his lineup while he is there. It would be great if your commish made a rule before the season starts thst any team found not setting their lineup for consecutive weeks will be locked out to avoid any competitive imbalance but it hard to deal with the problem otherwise.
I agree, if they're not "active" how can you trade with them? (also leaves Smack Talk useless..haha).
Also agree with the comment, flash a note n ppl pay attention.
Play for money then. People tend to pay attention when money on the line. Even $5 a person
I know in our league its just for fun and I hate to complain but it really bothers me when someone creates a team and then they don't participate. I know there a couple teams in my leage that have players that rank very well and I would love to have them on my team. I know its an easy win however it would be nice if those teams could be voted off or some how removed frome the leage
