    The problem isn't necessarily just in the timezones but also getting someone with the ability to get on and update points between games, often in a very short time.

    Unfortunately this is where the timezones comes in as it is the middle of the night for James and I am in work at the time so there is no way to do it otherwise I'm afraid.

    I wouldn't mind helping out. I own and run EPL Opta Stats & Blog | eplindex.com soccer stats - a stats site for football.

    If you need any help give us a shout. I'm sure I could try to update in between games or at least straight after matches to give you a hand as the matches finish around 7pm here in the UK.

    Yes that sounds correct. If your joining a private/public user competition that it will be less of course.

    No, you need to make the changes for both matches before the 1st match starts. For people in Australia & New Zealand, the 2nd match doesn't start until 3am so it effectively rules out a lot of players from their chances of winning and gives a major advantage to people of the local time zone.

    2-4 hours on average after the 2nd match of the day.

    Seriously???? What about games that do start in Australia where it's 3:00AM in USA? What ever it is, start time is the start time and that's what the fun is to get ready what ever it takes...

    I'm not sure, if this is a limitation by the way you work on updating the scores and all, but if not, and the only justification is not being fair to all timezones, please reconsider it. As an example, tomorrow, after Mumbai game, I have no use for Mumbai players and I would have replaced Mumbai players with Kings but now I just can't.

    Most players coming from ESPN cricinfo will have hard time digesting this tomorrow where there are two games...

    But thank you for all the efforts you are putting to keep us entertained.

    That's a fair enough point and something that could be considered for IPL 2013. We would need to make some slight modifications to the way the modifications work currently, but it is possible.

    We've always done it this way however, regardless of where the tournament is. Whether it's Australia, England, India, etc.

    We'll definitely consider it however, and I'll bring it up with the other members of the FC team.

    If your want a prompt response, raising a ticket in the helpdesk is the best way. The modifications are disabled right on the start time of the match. If it's delayed by rain or some other reason, we don't take that into account. This is because we can't always have someone available for each and every start time of the match, so its completely automated.

    James, How do injuries work then?

    Sachin may be injured today. I want to know what the process is of changing him? Does he need to stay in my side until I receive a free transfer point or how does it work?

    When do you check if he is in our team? Just need some clarification about the free transfer if Sachin is injured today.

    Any chance of getting that clarification before the game starts?

    Injury replacements only happen if the player is officially ruled out of the whole Tournament and that player is in your team when the injury is updated on the system.

    Show number of changes in Private Competition

    Admin,

    One critical feature missing is it doesn't show number of changes left for each team in the Private competition. Since you show maintain this number, its should be a simple column addition to the "PRIVATE COMPETITION" ranking page and show the no of changes you maintain from the database. If you think other folks will complain, create a poll and see of majority likes it.

    Most of the folks playing in user league, want to see how many changes other have and make their changes accordingly. There are new folks joining fantasy cricket, and it would be good for them to see how other are making changes so they learn quickly.

    Can you please add it.

    200 modifications are really high. Is it possible for private competition owners to reduce it?

    Thanks for the suggestion. We'll consider that for the next release however it would probably be along the lines of the user choosing whether they wish to display it or not.

    No that isn't possible.
    It should be fine to show this information if user selects to be "public"
    When is your next release?

    Yes that was what I meant.

    Should be a release sometime before the T20 World Cup. No work has started on it yet but we'll discuss all the suggestions that have come through after the IPL finishes.

    Yesterday the site was down for some time and some players in the league couldn't make substitutions in time.
