I've had some good communications with the Sleeper staff on some features. I think its important that if you see something that needs to be added or improved that you message them and let them knkow. They want to add additional features in 2020. The more we tell them, the better it will get.

Unlike MFL, these guys actually ARE listening and want to deliver a great product.

I've asked them to add Double and Triple Headers, and it seems like they will try to do it for the 2020 season. I think it would be helpful for those of you who are pro-Sleeper, to send them similar messages. And post here what features you're interested in having them add, and I will do the same for your features.

:thumbup:
The features I want most are

1 easy to use/appealing interface
2 up year round
3 dark theme
4 built in chat and messaging

They already nailed 3 of those, and the only one remaining is a dark theme but they have plans to add it next season.

That was pretty offensive of me, sorry. I just don't like forcing nicknames in general. I knew I wouldn't enjoy reading it before I clicked on it, just by the title. It's not that your nicknames are especially bad.

I personally despise the "Konami Code" thing, because it's so overused for QB's with rushing ability on podcasts.

AJ Brown is the new Green?

IDK, I'm not high on ideas right now.

What does this have to do with Sleeper? Does it give some option to add nicknames for players or something? Or just it’s the platform this roster is on? Confused.

Gesicki’s nickname is in such poor taste. You should really delete it.
