FPL Draft

Here is where you will find all things related to the FPL Draft version of the game. The FISO community run several draft leagues from here, most of which are private, but occasionally a space may open up if a participant drops out, so look out for announcements at the beginning of the season. You can also use the forum to try and put together your own Draft Leagues with other FISOers.

Becoming a FISO Sidegame Admin

FISOers love playing games - it's why we're all here in the first place, so if you want to run a game, there's a good chance that people will want to play it. So here's what you need to know in order to go about it.

1. There are a handful of games which only moderators, or longstanding members nominated by the moderators, are allowed to run. These are the official FISO mini-leagues. For FPL this is the 'FISO Official FPL League'.

2. Games which require an entry fee or offer a prize cannot be run by anyone with less than 12 months FISO membership, not posting in the last 3 months and less than 250 total posts.

3. Games which offer prizes must specify how the prizes will be distributed and carry the following disclaimer in the opening post:
If you decide to join a mini-league/ side game/ competition promoted on FISO then you do so at your own risk. Whilst FISO has taken steps to put a Moderator as Chairman of "Official/Main" FISO Leagues, we may not be able to help you should he/she decide not to distribute the prize he/she has won. A mini-league/ side game/ competition set up using the FISO forums is not the responsibility of FISO Ltd or its Director.

If you want to join a non-official mini-league then you should try and put in place some form of written agreement between the participants and the chairman (using real life names) with regard to the distribution of any prize won. This could be based upon a standard syndicate type agreements - showing the membership and how winnings are paid out. These should be signed but at least do an exchange of private messages.

If you do not receive the share of winnings you were expecting then do not blame FISO Ltd. You were warned.
4. If the game involves setting up an FPL Mini League and charges an entry or administration fee then you should also make sure that the participants in your league are aware of FPL's policy regarding such leagues and that the league and accounts of participants may be deleted by FPL. (Rule 13 in FPL T&Cs).

The full FISO Forum Rules regarding sidegames and leagues can be found here

Other than the above, and for games which are free to play and don't offer prizes, then it's simply a case of posting a thread for your game and seeing who wants to play. You don't need anyone's permission to start a sidegame and you'll find plenty of people on the forum willing to offer help and advice on getting your game up and running.

So whether you've got an idea for something brand new, or just want to reboot an old favourite from way back, by all means give it a go and become a FISO Sidegame admin.

As mentioned a while ago in TRK I've made a style that tones down the garish colours on FPL and thought I'd share for anyone else who might want the same.

You need to install the Stylus extension in Firefox & Chrome (not sure about other browsers) and add the following in
