So that's the majority of the league settings. I also have a few rules of my own regarding inactivity.
1) If you are going to be away for a while and can't manage your lineup, then post something in the message board so we know.
2) If you are inactive for 2 weeks and haven't made any notification that you are away, you will receive a friendly email, confirming that you still want to be in the league.
2) If you are inactive for 3 weeks you will receive an email warning you that you will be replaced if you do not manage your team properly.
4) If you are inactive for 4 weeks you will be replaced.
