Input for FAQs
« on: 16 Jun 2011 11:11:22 AM »
We have all post raise questions like the following at one time or another:

Revoking Waivers in the GM Desk -- Is hitting PASS on a player page equivalent to releasing the player to the team who made a waiver claim or will the button revoke the waiver process?

I want to prepare an FAQ page and note down areas we should clarify and/or add explanations/example to in the Official Rules. Can everyone do one or both of the following to help feed an FAQ page and plan advance improvements to the clarity of the Official Rules?

  • Respond to this post with links to forum threads with these sorts of questions about the Official Rules and GM Desk functionality.
  • Post any GM Desk functionality or Official Rules section you think would benefit from an FAQ, clarification, explanation, or example.

If I have some time over the weekend, I will try to browse the forum some and see what I can find.

Is there a way to search the transaction log?  I'm curious in filtering out everything but deals that included cash.

It is fine if that isn't possible, just thought I would ask.

Thanks in advance.

I will also capture these FAQ at some point and add them to a page alongside the DMB Primer.
