Allow commissioners the option to choose a higher threshold for vetos. 1/3 of the league is not enough and whether it is or not, the option to set it at 1/3 or 3/4 etc would be nice. My league would like it to be at least half the league for a veto.

Veto voting for trades should have more options, 1/3 of the league is too low. A majority or 1/2 would be a better starting point. As a commissioner I'd prefer that the people get to vote. I don't want to have to be judge and deal with every trade, but 1/3 is too low and causes issues in the league.

I'd be happy with at least 1/2 required for a veto. The ability to change that setting ourselves would be best.
Last year our 14 team league was held ******* by a small minority of 4 or 5 who decided they would choose which trades were allowed, who was allowed to trade, and who with. Legit trades were vetoed same as non -legit ones with no apology or care. It became a blockade that was only broken when one of the commissioners had enough and changed the settings to remove league votes. You can imagine how well that went over to have rules changed mid-season.
It was set at 2/3 public vote to veto. But hard feelings persist because it is a commissioner power now instead of a player one. The ability to set a higher threshold for league vetoes before the season starts would be a big help.
100% agree (but am out of votes). The exact veto limit should be configurable, at the bare minimum.
Vetoers should also be required to provide a reason, and the commish should be given the final opportunity to veto a successful group of vetoes.

I would recommend that the voting should be by Majority: “At least 50% of the votes plus one or a number greater than half of the total votes cast.”
Herbey Herbert commented
We have a league of 15 teams and only needing 5 votes for a veto is absurd.
Ian Keir commented
This is a great idea! Currently we have lots of problems with league voted vetoes. In our 9 team league, 3 votes constitutes a veto. That is way too low! It should be able to be adjusted by the number of managers in your league.
I meant the option to set it at 1/2 or 3/4
