Yes, that's me.I hope you guys don't mind me invading your forum :unsure: Are you supposed to go the the FFA forum and introduce yourself when you first join? Trust me, I am not shy, but for some reason I feel weird about that....

introductions in the FFA forum aren't mandatory, but the residents of the FFA forum would surely enjoy it. the FFA forum is home to comedy, drama, genius and unbelievable ignorance. in varying amounts. and I 100% guarantee a few more TurfWar subscribers if you say hello there!

Wow, the lovely Sarah has joined us! Welcome. You mentioned our site (ffauthority.com) a few weeks ago when I finished 2nd. I should have been first (stupid FG block by the Cowboys), but I digress...

I have posted my analysis of the Early, Late and All Games challenge questions for TurfWar on FFAuthority. Good luck this weekend!

See you on the leaderboard! :bye:

Turf,

Referral program looks really good. Is there any way to know which people are signing up using our referral code? I hammered it out to about 30 guys across my various leagues and have 3 referral credits, but I'd like to set us up in a side league, but I don't know who's in so far (and don't really want to email all 30 guys again to ask!). Thanks again!

BoomBoom

:unsure: I was about to ask this same question... I just sent this out to a bunch of friends as well...ETA: BOOMBOOM...you say you have 3 referral credits. Have those showed up already? I know I have at least one buddy who has told me he signed up through my link, but I don't know when to expect to see the credits show up and when to see the names of buddies that have signed on and that I will be 'rooting for' as well...

Hey guys,

I will tell our programmers ASAP that you want to see who you referred and has already signed up, that is a great idea. Maybe we can have some sort of button that will automatically put them in a side-league with you as well.

As for the credits, like FFAuthority Ryan said, they do show up immediately once the person you have referred sets up a roster, but they have to have not only signed up, but also actually set at least one roster for this weekend.

As for the credits you win through the sub-leagues, they are not considered promotional credits and can be redeemed for money after the playoffs.

Hope that answers your questions.

That's not very encouraging, I've been depositing every week so I can play the full # of rosters, but if they are saying that they might suspend the game at some point and all unused game credits will be lost, that would seem to discourage people from depositing as you might lose any credits you acquire this week through winning your subleagues. Or are they talking about just losing the free credits people receive from signing up? Maybe Turf Warrior could elaborate? Also, if they suspend the game, will checks still be mailed for the winners of past weeks that haven't been sent out yet?

Sorry for the delay. Two things, in the event that we were to suspend the game anybody that had unused "paid" game credits would receive a refund for that amount. Secondly, we will continue to pay out winners checks to previous and current winners as usual even if we need to suspend the game at some future point.
Hey TW,

I am sure you folks are busy over there, but I was wondering if someone here could point me in the right direction for checking on the status of a submission for Week #4 that was sent on October 9th. I did not receive a confirmation email and just want to make sure the materials were filled out correctly, received, and processed.

thanks guys!

I think that you could run a similar promotion, by having a partnership with an online sportsbook, to have players win credits as some of your prizes at the sportsbook. So, for example, players who get top 10 get a cash check and players 10-100 get sportsbook credits in some amount.

I think your suggestion is a pretty good one, but I'll be honest... it means squat to me. I still have over $700 locked down in Betonsports.com from when the feds shut them down, and I won't ever be betting online again. IMO, No thanks to this idea... even though it definitely could make business sense.

I could be wrong, but aren't online sportsbooks illegal in the US according to the UIGEA? Could a company based in the U.S. legally partner with them?

Yes, they are illegal... reference betonsports.com, and my previous post.
FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE INTERESTED IN THE LEGALITY OF OUR GAME - PLEASE READ BELOW Just want to reiterate my post from a few weeks ago. The anti-gambling legislation passed by congress last fall contains a specific exemption for fantasy sports competitions as long as the games/contests adhere to a specific set of guidelines. Turf War contests comply with all the guidelines and is therefore legal.You can find the language near the end of H.R. 4954-69, The Safe Port Act. (Don't ask me why they attached this to the Safe Port Act, just know it's in there at the end.)Also, this excerpt from last October from Fantasy Sports Magazine when the law was passed; "An anti-Internet gambling bill that was quickly passed by the U.S. Congress two weeks ago and signed into law by President George W. Bush on Oct. 13 has carve-out language for the fantasy sports industry that clearly defines its legality. The carve-out language states that fantasy games are exempt from the gambling law as long as they follow two stipulations: One, the awards and prizes are stated in advance of the game and not determined by the number of participants or total entry fee revenue of those participants; and two, as long as winning outcomes are determined by skill for contests that use results from multiple real-life games. “The exemption of fantasy sports from the Internet Gambling Bill was a big victory for the fantasy sports industry because it clarified what the industry already knew -- that fantasy sports are games of skill,” said Clay Walker, chairman of the Fantasy Sports Association. “Though it’s too early to tell, it’s likely that the bill's passage into law will spur even more investment into the fantasy sports space.”

I read back a page or two to see if I could find the answer to this but:

I notice that some scores have point totals and others do not (for the night games) and was wondering why. (For example my game has only the total for the Position Challenge questions totaled and non of my players totals added in.)

Thanks

I find that I have to refresh the page to get the updates scores. Try that.

The position challenge questions for the NIGHT contest are not complete until Monday Night's game is over.Also, our results are "official" Tuesday evening once we validate the league game data.

Thanks for the help.

I hit for $150 tonight in the ALL (8th overall) and 1st in the sub group in my first try on this thing. (Spent 3 credits.)

Am I to wait on an email from turfwar now to claim my prize?

Thanks FBG's and Turfwar!!

*I see the results are not official until Tues.

Congrats to you as well Wick.

You going to grab some free credits?

I think I will use $50 and take the rest back. Hmmm...I just tried to do that but it only has an option to pay for more credits via credit card. Does this have an option to buy credits with previously earned winnings?

FYI. I was talking about gambling sites, not Turf War. I learned the hard way with betonsports.

I like this Idea also...I would gladly invest the 75 I won this week back into the site if they gave me that option.

If you read back through this thread, this came up and Turf basically said for accounting purposes they need to mail out the $ (and cannot just give credits instead).

Right - I caught that after I went back to read through the rest of the thread.I still have yet to receive an email regarding claiming prizes though. Have you received yours Wick?Thanks!

We're running a bit behind on the notifications with all the work we're doing with the new referral program and upcoming changes to the site. BTW, if you haven't checked out the referral program you should immediately. You get one free game credit for each completed referral plus you'll get a cash bonus equal to 20% of whatever someone you refers wins as long as you're a Turf War member. Basically it's a "They win, You win" program.Also, each week we award 20 free game credits to the top 3 referrers for the week.
