[PS5][28/32] Gridiron Knights: Play Year-Round, Play with Integrity
2021.09.20 17:05 DynastyPlanner [PS5][28/32] Gridiron Knights: Play Year-Round, Play with Integrity
We are currently in the week 1 of season 1. Since the scouting update is expected to be released in October our plan is to play a season and then restart once the update is released. HOW TO JOIN
Jump straight into our Discord chat and say you're interested. Follow this link to join now: https://discord.gg/3g7vZW6 INFO ABOUT ROSTERS/TEAMS
COMING SOON - Check out our daddyleagues page for any questions you have about teams/rosters: http://daddyleagues.com/gridironknights LEAGUE OVERVIEW
- Advance 3 times per week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays around noon/12 pm ET
- This league is guaranteed to be active year round. Guaranteed.
- Hardcore group that have been playing together since Madden 25.
- Simple rules that don’t tell you how to coach your team
- Emphasis on good sportsmanship
- Communication is conducted via Discord
WHO WE’RE LOOKING FOR
- We don’t tolerate jerks for long. Two guys filling up the chat with petty insults back and forth is one of the primary reasons we boot people from the league.
- We have a core group of long-term members who have played together for multiple Madden releases because we have FUN
- We have friendly, post-game discussions with our opponents where we talk strategy and key moments in the game
- We frequently talk some friendly trash before our games
- We play Madden ALL YEAR LONG
- New members are welcomed and will quickly feel comfortable in the league
- Someone who is always respectful in their communications with other league members and who demonstrates good sportsmanship during game.
- Someone who wants to play Madden all year long. We are unlikely to allow members who quit mid-year to return to the league even if they were solid players and had a positive impact on the community because that puts the remaining league members in the position of playing CPU games. CPU games are less fun and our objective is to keep a full league so you always play a person, but recruiting new members in July and August can be challenging. We don't want to keep allowing people who have a history of dropping out to return and take up spots for guys who might stay year round.
- You don’t have to be a great Madden player. We welcome those who are new to the game. In fact, our members have a history of sharing tips to help new guys spin up and become competitive.
- Willingness to use Discord for communication. We don’t want someone who insists that their opponent contact them via text or through PSN to schedule games.
- Must be 18 years of age or older.
LEAGUE RULES PHILOSOPHY
- All Madden difficulty, but we may make slider adjustments to improve game play.
- Coach or Owner only
- Sim Mode
- 8 Min Quarters
Other leagues have tedious and complicated rules dictating your play calling, from when in the game and where on the field you can go for it on 4th down, or call no huddle, or even how many points you're allowed to score. In the heat of a game it's very difficult to keep them straight. Ultimately, the reason other leagues create those complex rules is to stop guys from immature play calling, such as spamming the same play repeatedly. Our league discovered that the same guys spamming plays are also the guys who start petty insult exchanges in the chat. We focus on removing guys with immature behavior and poor sportsmanship, and by doing so we also removed the guys who are guilty of immature play calling. Consequently, we don't need a giant book of playcalling rules. We offer our members the convenience of a simple set of rules that allow you to call your own plays. LEAGUE RULES
Our rules are so good they've been copied by multiple other leagues. Just remember, there's no substitute for the original!
1.1 ONSIDE KICKS/SQUIB KICKS/FAKE PUNTS - You are allowed to attempt onside kicks, squib kicks or fake punts as often as you like, as long as you do not have a 21 point or greater lead over your opponent. Real NFL teams occasionally try to surprise their opponents with an onside kick or fake punt, so it is allowed in this league. Attempting one of these types of kicks with a significant lead is considered poor sportsmanship.
1.2 NO HUDDLE OFFENSE - You are allowed to run a no huddle offense.
1.3 4th DOWN - You are allowed to go for it on 4th down at anytime in a game, including the 1st quarter. Real NFL coaches occasionally go for it on 4th down, so it is allowed in this league. However, if you are winning by 21 points or more you must punt or kick a field goal. Going for it on 4th down with a significant lead is considered poor sportsmanship.
1.4 BLOWOUT RULE - If you are winning by 21 points or more in the second half against another user do not continue to pass on every down or try to win by as big a margin as possible. Intentionally running up the score is considered poor sportsmanship.
1.5 STREAMING GAMES - You are not required to stream your game but may do so if you like.
1.6 RESTARTING GAMES - You are not allowed to restart a CPU game. Restarting a CPU game for any reason, including because you are losing or because a key player is injured, is considered cheating.
1.7 QUITTING GAMES - Quitting any type of game (user-vs-user or user-vs-CPU) is not allowed. Conceding a game is considered quitting.
1.7.1 DISCONNECTIONS - Occasionally, for reasons out of your control, you may be inadvertently disconnected from your game because of a loss of internet connection or an error with the PlayStation network. This should only occur very infrequently and will not be accepted as an excuse for quitting games if it happens frequently.
1.7.2 DEFAULT WINNER - If a disconnection occurs during a user-vs-user game where one of the users has a significant lead they may be declared the winner of the game by default. If you are winning by 21 points or more during the first half, 14 points or more during the 3rd quarter or 10 points or more during the 4th quarter you are considered the default winner. Default winners have their choice of 1) replaying the game against the CPU with their opponent set on auto 2) requesting that the commissioner simulate the game using the Sim-a-Win feature to force the default winner’s victory or 3) replaying their user opponent. If you replay your opponent, there is no guarantee you will win the replayed game.
1.8 REPORTING RULE BREAKING - If your opponent is breaking the rules you should record their infraction via the video capture/share feature of your PlayStation 4. Then you have two options:
1.8.1 CONTINUE THE GAME - You may continue the game. It is recommended that you message your opponent in the main chat and request that they stop breaking the rules (please be respectful). After the game you may submit the video showing your opponent breaking the rules to the commissioner. The commissioner will then decide if penalizing your opponent is appropriate.
1.8.2 EXIT THE GAME - You may quit the game, but you risk being penalized. If you quit the game then it is mandatory that you submit the video showing your opponent breaking the rules. The commissioner will review the video and rule either for or against you.
220.127.116.11 OPPONENT FOUND GUILTY - If the commissioner rules in your favor you will have the option to replay the game with your opponent on auto or the commissioner will use the Sim-a-Win feature to ensure you win the game via simulation when the league advances. The commissioner will also decide the penalty for your opponent.
18.104.22.168 OPPONENT FOUND NOT GUILTY - If the commissioner is unable to establish beyond reasonable doubt that your opponent broke the rules then you will be subject to a penalty for quitting the game.
1.8.3 REPORTING RESPONSIBILITY - Commissioners are not necessarily watching your game, so it is your responsibility to report it if another member of the league is violating the rules.
1.9 GLITCH PLAYS - EA Sports does well at continuously releasing patches to Madden that eliminate glitches in the game that when taken advantage of can give one player an unfair advantage. However, the commissioners may ban specific formation-play or even formation-play-hot route combinations if necessary.
1.9.1 GLITCH PLAY REPORTING - If your opponent is taking advantage of a glitch play that is giving them an unfair advantage, you should record the play via the video capture/share feature of your PlayStation 4 and share it with commissioners. Commissioners will decide if the play needs to be banned from the league.
1.9.2 BANNED PLAYS - A list of banned glitch plays will be documented in this section of the rules. An announcement will be made via the Discord app every time a banned play is added to this list.
BANNED PLAY LIST
1.9.3 REPORTING RESPONSIBILITY - Commissioners are not necessarily watching your game, so it is your responsibility to report it if another member of the league is using a glitch play.
1.10 PENALTIES FOR BREAKING THE INTRA-GAME RULES - Penalties for breaking any of the rules outlined above may include 1) being placed on auto for one or more weeks, 2) using Sim-a-Win to ensure your team loses a game or multiple games, 3) barring you from participating in signing free agents or the draft, 4) loss of draft picks or 5) removal from the league. Penalties will be decided by the commissioner on a case-by-case basis.
2.1 TRADE COMMITTEE PHILOSOPHY - The trade committee exists to ensure that user-to-CPU trades are reasonable. One of the primary objectives of the trade committee is the oversee trades that occur in the last few seasons before the next version of Madden is released where the CPU’s decisions don’t account for the limited remaining time.
2.2 TRADE COMMITTEE MEMBERS - Commissions will appoint 5 members of the trade committee.
2.3 CPU TRADES - User-to-CPU trades must be approved by a majority vote of the trade committee.
2.3.1 TRADE PROPOSALS - In order to be approved trades must be proposed in the Trade Committee section of the Discord application. Trade proposals must include basic information about the players, including player name, position, age and overall rating.
2.3.2 TRADE APPROVAL - A trade is approved only when at least 3 out of 5 of the trade committee approve.
22.214.171.124 DEFAULT APPROVAL - If a trade committee member does not respond to a trade proposal within 12 hours that committee member’s vote on the trade is defaulted to an approval.
2.3.3 TRADE COMMITTEE EXCEPTIONS - The following user-to-CPU trades do not need trade committee approval.
126.96.36.199 CPU PROPOSED TRADES - If the CPU proposes a trade to you then you may accept without trade committee approval.
188.8.131.52 DRAFT PICK TRADES - Trading draft picks for draft picks (i.e. no players) does not need trade committee approval during stage 4 and stage 5 (the draft week) of the off-season.
184.108.40.206.1 LAST SEASON EXCEPTION - If the commissioners have announced that the league is in its final season then users may not trade away their draft picks for the next season without trade committee approval. (For example: If the league is in season 2021 and it is the league’s final season then users may not trade 2022 draft picks without trade committee approval)
2.3.4 TRADE COMMITTEE MEMBER VOTING - Trade committee members cannot vote to approve their own trade. If a trade committee member has proposed a trade, they must get approval from 3 of the other 4 committee members.
2.4 USER-TO-USER TRADES - You are free to make user-to-user trades at will, no approval is required.
2.5 PENALTIES FOR BREAKING TRADING RULES - Penalties for breaking any of the rules outlined above may include 1) barring you from participating in signing free agents or the draft, 2) loss of draft picks, 3) being forced to release players from your roster or 4) removal from the league. Penalties will be decided by the commissioner on a case-by-case basis.
3.1 PERSONAL CONDUCT - It is mandatory that you treat other users within the league with respect. Some good natured trash talking is allowed, but derogatory or offensive communications are unacceptable. Members who fill out the chat trading petty insults with each other will be removed from the league.
3.2 ADVANCE SCHEDULE - The league advances on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays around 9 am ET.
3.3 SCHEDULING GAMES - Each user is responsible for scheduling their game within the given time before the league’s advance. The league approved form of communication for scheduling games is the Discord app. When attempting to schedule a game with your opponent you must address them using the @ symbol and their Discord nickname. Some of our members don’t routinely follow the Discord chat and addressing them with the @ symbol will send them a notification.
3.3.1 OPPONENT NON-RESPONSE - If you have not heard back from your opponent after attempting to schedule for 24 hours, you may contact the commissioners and request your opponent be placed on auto so that you may play your game or receive a force win. There is no guarantee the commissioner will be available to place your opponent on auto if you wait to the last minute to make your request.
3.4 USER PARTICIPATION - Active participation in the league is mandatory. You are expected to play 3 games per week as a member of this league. Occasional absences are understandable, but frequent absences may lead to being removed from the league.
3.4.1 ABSENCES - If you know in advance that you will be unavailable to play a game, please put your team on auto and inform your opponent.
3.4.2 EXTENDED ABSENCES - If you will have an extended absence such as a vacation, please place your team on auto for the appropriate amount of time and inform the commissioner of your absence. Failure to inform the commissioners may result in you being removed from the league.
3.5 CPU GAMES FORCE WINS - Force wins against the CPU will be granted, however you must request a force win. Force win request should be made in the #ForceWinRequests channel on Discord. Direct requests to individual commissioners may be missed if a different commissioner advances the league.
3.6 CORE HOURS REQUIREMENT - All members of the league are expected to have some availability during core hours. Core hours are defined as being available between 5 pm to 10 pm ET Monday or Tuesday and being available between 5 pm to 10 pm ET Wednesday, Thursday or Friday and being available at some time on Saturday or Sunday. It’s not expected that members always play their games during these hours, but someone that is never available during these core hours will cause difficulties scheduling games and is not a good fit for this league.
3.7 ALL YEAR LEAGUE - This league will continue to play throughout the entire year. The league prefers that members are committed to playing all year long.
3.8 LEAVING THE LEAGUE - We wish the best to members who leave the league in good standing because they had other priorities in their life and could no longer honor the time commitment the league requires. However, it is unlikely that someone who quits the league will be allowed to return. This league is committed to remaining fun all year long and that becomes difficult in the later, summer months if retirements from the league are causing the remaining members to play numerous CPU games. We don't want to allow people who have a history of dropping out to return and take up spots for guys who might stay year round.
4.1 COACH OR OWNER - You must create a new coach. Using an owner or existing coach is not allowed.
4.2 SWITCHING TEAMS - You may only switch to a different team with commissioner approval. Approval is more likely to be given during the off-season.
4.3 TEAM RELOCATION - Team relocation is not allowed. Historically we’ve found that it is difficult to recruit new members to a team that has been relocated.
4.4 DIFFICULTY LEVEL - This league plays at the All-Madden difficulty level.
4.4.1 CPU BLOWOUTS - The commissioners may adjust CPU team artificial intelligence (AI) higher if CPU teams are consistently getting blown out by members of the league.
4.5 GAME MODE - Simulation Mode.
4.6 GAME DURATION SETTINGS - 8 minute quarters with 20 second accelerated clock.
5.1 RESIGNING PLAYERS
5.1.1 POSITION CHANGES - You can not change a players position in order to resign them for a lower salary.
5.1.2 RELEASE AND RESIGN
220.127.116.11 SAME WEEK RESIGNING RESTRICTION - If you release a player you can’t resign that player until the following week.
18.104.22.168 SAME WEEK RESIGNING EXCEPTION - An exception may be granted by the commissioners if a player in accidentally released and is desired to be resigned immediately.
5.2 POSITION CHANGES
5.2.1 POSITION CHANGES ALLOWED - The following position changes are allowed:
- QB -> No position changes allowed
- HB -> WR, FB or TE (only if 230 lbs or more)
- WR -> HB, FB or TE (only if 230 lbs or more)
- TE -> WR, HB or FB
- OL -> Any OL position or FB
- DL -> Any DL or LB position
- LB -> Any LB, DL or Safety position
- DB -> Any DB position or LB (only if 220 lbs or more)
- K -> P
- P -> K
5.2.2 POSITION CHANGE FREQUENCY - The number of times a player’s position can change is limited to prevent exploits in the game. Position changes for a player may only occur in 4 weeks out of each season. During each week, multiple changes are allowed. For example, during a week a defensive end may be changed to linebacker and then changed back within the same week.

2021.09.20 17:05 TheCrackedRealms Import other Hombrewery pages
Hello, so one of the obviouse issues with the hombrewery is that the code is not secure in the documents when handing them out. could you add a feature that lets you import specific pages from another doc ///Import Page#1 "Doc link" This would be usefull for allowing people to break up documents over multiple books for editing purposes and allowing editors acess to only specific books, and would make there code and creations more secure.

2021.09.20 17:05 Mykonos_Bitch Employer is raising “concerns around my conduct” after I’ve asked for a promotion? (UK)
I need some help as I'm feeling quite threatened at my current place of work. I have been at the company for 2.7 years and haven't received a promotion despite reaching all of my objectives.
Prior to my review (about my promotion) I was sent an email by my line manager which was hinting to me not getting a promotion due to process’s around checking in about my progression. This process is technically informal and hasnt been outlined as a must follow anywhere before.
In this email, it was being implied I didn’t care about my progression - I defended myself in which my manager then set up a call to discuss. In the call I once again defended myself against the alleged not caring about my progression and then continued to go into detail around some points I wanted to raise. These points consisted of feeling as if I was being held to different standards by the business compared to my peers (whilst sharing some examples of these).
Today I have been sent an email asking for an urgent meeting tomorrow morning which is to “discuss a matter of concern”. I replied asking what the meeting is regarding so that I can prepare any response and they have replied saying it’s to discuss some “concerns they have around my conduct” and they will “follow up with a letter” - I am “not required to prepare any response for the meeting”.
Right now, I have no idea what to expect but I mostly want to know what my legal rights are going into this meeting. It’s not been mentioned as a warning but right now I am feeling anxious and not sure how this has transpired all because I merely asked for a promotion….
I have receipts of the companies inconsistencies where they treat me differently etc. It seems this meeting they’ve called is completely different to my actual objective review which will happen in x2 days and it feels they’re trying to silence me with this curveball around my “conduct” which has never been raised before.
Any help or tips about what I should be doing or what I should prepare for would be appreciated.

2021.09.20 17:05 Mac_999 Anyone else not seeing a delivery date for their pre-order on Apple's website?
As of this morning the delivery date has disappeared from my order. It used to say "Arrives Sep 27" with the status at "preparing to ship". Now it only says "Arrives" and the date has disappeared and the status is still at "preparing to ship". Anyone else have this or is it just me? It's my first time pre-ordering, is this normal? I'm hoping my order isn't delayed.
