Finally moving from CBS to MFL - questions on setup and history

Recommended Posts

After 10 years of being on CBS I am finally moving my local league over to MFL. It looks like tranferring league history is pretty manual, does anyone know if there's some type of utility or automated process to bring it over?

 

Also I am an html idiot so if anyone is well versed in setting up the looks/feel of their FF sites i'd like to ask some questions. Please let me know and I'll pm you.

 

Thanks!

Hard sell to the owners in your league, huh? I am in the same boat. They may understand a little easier when I have to jack up their entry fees. I hear CBS will be charging $179 per league this year.

$179 per league this year.

 

Good lord. MFL is superior in every way..including price.

I paid $144.95 for CBS last year...how much is MFL? Isn't it around $80-$90? And if they can transfer history, I can make it happen (or if I jsut type it in)

They run specials providing discounts for people converting from other hosts.

Thank you very much...I used it last year for a Master's league and for MSHB II and really like the artwork capabilities. It also seemed to have all the same features except I noticed the realtime scoring was not quite as fast nor as easy to read, but it probably just takes some getting used to.

Yes, that is exactly what I needed...I am seriously going to make the move without even letting them vote on it. It is family and very close friends and I am sure they will see it my way, especially since I can transfer the history, which I guess I better print out soon or CBS will trash it.

I've done some more research and it looks like you can transfer history but it's a manual process. They only give you the capability to set up previous seasons as individual sites. I'm working on 2001 right now. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong. This is freaking tedious.

 

oh and can someone answer my original question instead of bashing CBS?

Have you tried contacting the sales team at MFL? I believe they have said they can assist on history transfer. They may have some way to get you up and running faster behind the scenes.

 

As for the html stuff, yes, some here can answer questions, but they have a VERY good support community on their own support forums with sections dedicated to coding and graphic design. I strongly recommend using their dedicated forums.

Thanks guys. I emailed the sales team and as for html will defintiely check out their forum.

 

I hope they can assist with the 10 years of history I need to bring over. I have the first 6 dumped into an access db so hopefully something from that is salvagable.

 

I am definitely excited to start using MFL.

If you have more than one league with MFL, you can see league scoring for each of them at one place. Check into the My Fantasy League Gameday program that you can download.

Yeah i believe its right around there . I transferred from fanball last year and I don't know if they still do it but if you are coming from a different site to theirs its half off. Also if you were with them last year and rejoin before 6/10 you get a $20 discount.

They have a deal if you move your league from a competitor it's only $44.95 for the first year. After that:

* $69.95 per league if purchased by June 10, 2010

* $79.95 per league if purchased by July 31, 2010

* $89.95 per league if purchased on or after August 1, 2010

One thing that our league like about CBS is the ability to add stories and polls. We have a few very creative owners and it provides me with endless laughs. Can you do that on MFL??
