    We have renewed our league for the upcoming season. If anyone is interested in joining please let me know. Even though it is called novice league, it is very competitive. However, we have weekly lineups so it doesn't take as much work.

    This has been painful last couple of years as we have to scrape by to get people to sign up. With Advanced league full, the forumites can't find 10-14 people that are interested in fantasy basketball?

    How many people were in Novice last season? Perhaps the forum could have two leagues. Obviously a lot of people in Novice are no longer novice and are simply there due to lack of space in Advanced.

    Perhaps instead of Advanced being 14 teams and still having people on the outside looking in, there could be two leagues of 10-12 and introduce a relegation system whereby the top 2-3 from Novice move up into Advanced and the bottom 2-3 from Advanced are relegated to Novice.

    This would ensure teams are competitive til the end in Advanced to avoid relegation and guys in Novice have a change to move into Advanced.

    It would mean however that Novice should be changed to a Daily league with all the same settings as Advanced to keep it consistent. Thoughts?

    I finished 14th in Advanced last year, but I was sandbagging.

    I'd volunteer to participate in the Novice league and relinquish my spot in Advanced, only if there was an incentive to be able to make it into the Advanced league the following year.

    Also, big fan of weekly lineups rather than daily.

    Whatever works, just have to get everyone on board.

    Honestly, the biggest difference I see is weekly vs daily lineups. The league has been very competitive among people that actually did something beyond registering. We can rename this into the Advanced II. Another thing could be a supercup - one league's winner plays another in a manual final. That is also a possibility.

    I think that the "Novice" leqague suffers from a branding issue.
    Most of the guys in that league are experienced and are every bit as formidable as anyone in the "Advanced" league.

    Like mikhail said - it's basically a Weekly vs Daily linup issue.
    IF we're having problems finding enough players for the "weekly" (aka Novice) league; - I'll play.

    We should just assign each league a random number.

    PistonsForum Basketball League 235634 vs. PistonsForum Basketball League 710459

    Can't tell which one is Novice or Advanced!

    Yeah, perhaps renaming the leagues weekly vs daily would help.

    I played in both leagues last year and they were both a lot of fun in different ways. I'd be willing to give up my spot in the advanced (daily) lineup league.

    BTW, I'll have to auto-draft, so I hope the draft order can be posted beforehand so I can plan a strategy. It takes a lot of mock-drafts to come up with a workable pre-draft ranking.

    Some good ideas here. We're blessed with some very clever members.

    I just don't like the weekly lineups thing. For me the skill in fantasy is making changes and tweaks that are immediately impactful - with weekly lineups you often wait the best part of two weeks for your changes to start paying off!

    So far we have 6 teams, would like to have at least 8 to have a meaningful tournament. Anyone who hasn't renewed yet please do so. Anyone else interested please let me know and I'll get you the info to sign up. The league is very competitive and has weekly lineups.

    Out of curiosity, how many new novice recruits does the Novice "Weekly" League typically average per year?
