Sleeper is crushing it so far. We have done start up and rookie draft. Draft timer paused overnight. Built in chat with gifs. Highly customizable alert notifications. Direct Message option for chatting about trades. It's going to blow up in another year or 2. It's too well designed not to.

Can Sleeper leagues be viewed by people not in the league like in MFL?

How did you get the timer to pause?

I have not liked it one bit so far. The issues I have already talked about, plus

Every person that emailed me about joining my league, the link I sent them did not lead directly to my league. What a pain in the arse.

A way to post league bylaws. They said i can just pin them. Well no matter how many times I try, the by laws will not even post to the chat board for me to pin them.

Did my comment help at all in accessing the website on your phone? I'll ask my GM about your other issues as I'm pretty sure he had similar problems but ended up getting it to work fine.

I ended up allowing access to my contacts, but the support staff said they will change it so that it's not a requirement

Sweet, we had a lot of panic from the GM in the first few days setting it up, most was teething issues finding where things were etc. Given time i think the app will be really good, just needs more feed back to devs from people like you, more feedback the better they can make it.

Does anyone know if Sleeper facilitates auction drafts? If not, is there a fairly neutral site that can host online auction drafts and then be transferred over to Sleeper?

It does not appear to support an auction. It has options for drafts with all players, rookies only, and vets only. Those three can be either snake or linear draft.

I'm sure there are sites that support an auction, but I don't know what they are. We do a live, in-person auction for mine and I enter the results into MFL.

Some issues I have ran into so far. The schedule auto generates, but does not have a real rhyme or reason if you have divsions (play each division member twice and non division once). You have to go in and manually change. Also, the waivers are a lot less adjustable. No way to eliminate having waivers run every night after the initial run unless all players become free agents and many of my leagues dont like free agents.

EDIT: That said, the support center is amazing and even seek out advice on how to improve.

Overall everyone seems happy with the swap for us so far. We actually migrated a keeper league over as well. The feedback when submitting a question through to support is very fast, albeit they may not actually have the answer/capacity to give you the answer you want, but they will at least answer you. Some complaints, just for people looking at the app...

Waivers aren't super flexible.

We limit draft pick trading in 1 keeper league to the current draft year and only during pre draft format leading up to the draft. In Sleeper you either enable draft pick trading (up to the next 3 years) or you don't allow it at all.

It is easy to accidentally draft the wrong player because there isn't a confirm button after selecting a player to draft. It's easy to manually reverse as the commish, but it was a compliant in our slow draft.

Agreed on the Waiver front, you either process it every day or it's a free-for-all. In the season, there's an option to keep players on Waivers for 1 - 3 days once they've played a game, but that apparently doesn't include pre-season games. It doesn't sound like it will be an issue in-season, but it was a huge headache during the pre / off season.

I did reach out to their account on Twitter, and they've been more than responsive. Regarding the Waivers, they did say they hope to have an updated Waiver system to be released this week, so fingers crossed.

We did continuous waivers to run nightly during the preseason, which isn't that big of a deal especially with the sporadic preseason and random practice schedule/injuries that pop up.

We just like to give everyone 1 - 2 days to download information when games actually take place. Under the current setup, you could add a player overnight just hours after his team played a game (late at night, when most people aren't even awake).
