Has anyone used the archive transfer to MFL from CBS? I'm curious what info goes over, how it's navigated, etc. TIA

I have only ever used MFL for dynasty and have one redraft league on Yahoo that I wish we would move but it wont ever happen.
I was looking into the leagues mentioned here just to see what was out there besides MFL for a potential start up league since I don't think the people I am looking to play with want to put any money down. Fleaflicker looked really good to me at first because it seems to be the closest to the customization of MFL specifically for scoring which I was looking for. However as someone who finds IDP pretty much mandatory, the fact that you cant separate DB and DL into CB, S, DE and DT basically made the site unusable for me, even yahoo has that option. Same with Fanstar.

I'm about ready to take the plunge with MFL. Can I change the league name after I start it? I'm more concerned with the settings right now than I am coming up with names.

Also, can I easily take another league's rules/bylaws/settings and make them my own, or do I have to do it all from scratch?

You can change it whenever you want. Not sure about the other leagues rules, you could start the league and submit a support ticket asking them if they would be able to do it. If you're commish (or know the commish and he's a nice guy) you can just ask him to duplicate the league, and then just give you control of the duplicated league. You'd have to drop all the players from teams and input the new owners, but that's pretty simple.

You can change any setting, even scoring or any other rule at any time. Several times a season, day or even hour if you want. You are not limited by anything with MFL (didn't realize there were services that did that).

Also you can copy scoring rules from any other league, just use the copy scoring rules option and input the league ID of the league you wish to copy. You can then edit it from there if you wish. Also you can duplicate your own league at any time. And it's free. In fact everything at MFL is free, you only pay if you want scoring. So first thing I do every season is create a duplicate of my league for testing.

Also how was the transition between using a mainstream site to a site like fleaflicker. Most of the guys in this league have never played dynasty and we just want a free, easy site with good live scoring that allows trading players for draft picks.

Thanks
I can't answer in regards to live scoring for fleaflicker; but, I did get 9 others that are used to espn/yahoo/cbs redraft leagues to go with me on a startup dynasty that is drafting tomorrow. The only drawback I see between fleaflicker and say espn is no app. Otherwise fleaflicker is free and very customizable for a dynasty league. As to your question about trading picks in espn you can trade picks for players or picks or a combination. I've been running a number of keeper leagues on espn for years. Only reason I talked the guys into fleaflicker for the dynasty is because I wanted a site that was up and available year round. In one of my keeper leagues on espn the owners are very active and it's a pain to manually keep track of all the player/pick trades and then manually do them on espn's site when they open up ff for the following year.

My 2 leagues are on CBS right now, and we're very happy with it. We played on MFL for years, and it's layout is not intuitive and is a pain to get used to at first, but you do get used to it. But we just much prefer CBS. CBS has made some changes recently that don't necessarily make it better, but it hasn't made it worse IMO and overall it is a good experience for the commish and players in our experience. iOS app is awesome

All of my leagues are at CBS. Not sure how I feel about the changes, but I haven't used them much yet. We've switched twice to try and save money, but their live scoring is just way better than whatever else we tried. Besides, they give me a multi league discount now so the price isn't too bad. My biggest beef is that you can't use their long draft until late June. We start our draft the Monday after the NFL Draft concludes, so this is no good.

I am commish of a league on RSO. Not as customisable as MFL I imagine but its so simple to use & the free agency auction is a lot of fun & again, simple to use. The creators make changes year to year & are always open to suggestions for further improvements to the site. I haven't used MFL so can't compare it but I did attempt to set a league up on the site & it seemed overly complicated for a new user.

I'd recommend reality sports online to anyone.

Going into year 4 for my Dynasty League on Yahoo!. It is very customizable and does just about anything that we want it to. The only thing that we cannot do that we wish we could is a PUP list for players with injury designations that are not on IR. The roster size is also maxed at 30 players, but that is not too big of a deal as we do not want to go any bigger anyways.
QB, 2RB, 3WR, Flex, K, 3LB, DT, 2DE, 2CB, 2S

TE: Dwayne Allen , Mychal Rivera
K: Blair Walsh
LB: Kiko Alonso, Nigel Bradham, D'Qwell Jackson, Brian Cushing, DeMeco Ryans, Jacquain Williams, Wesley Woodyard
DE: Jerry Hughes, Chandler Jones, George Johnson
DT: Ndamukong Suh
CB: Ron Parker, Trumaine McBride Antoine Cason, Jerraud Powers

How much does Yahoo cost per year for a Dynasty league? I can't seem to find it on the website for some reason

I've used MFL for 20 years. Haven't had any justifiable reason to switch to anything else.
