[edit] The Top: For You and the Admin

The top of your homepage is for your account summary and admin announcements.

[edit] The Calendar

The calendar shows today and the day before/after. You can scroll through the days using the arrows, so that you can plan for aspects such as the offseason, endorsements and trade deadlines. Always look to this whenever you have a question of when something important happens (such as the end of the season).

[edit] The Account Summary

On the upper left of your home page is your "avatar" which is shown whenever you post in the forum. To add, or change, an avatar use the "Upload" button, located underneath the avatar. Along with your username, you can also see your Flex Points account and spend/buy/earn flex points.

To the right of your user name, there is a link that reads "( Account Settings/Referrals )". Clicking that link will open the page from which you can access your account options, forum options, referrals, and flex point history. Next to your avatar you can see how many Flex Points you have left, how many unread messages you have in your inbox, and how many unread alerts you have. On the right is a trophy case; new users won't see anything but, as you become owners or GMs of great teams that win conference and league championships, trophies will show up in the trophy case.

[edit] The Admin Announcements

Underneath your account summary is an announcements list; this will keep you up-to-date on any major changes or dates to the site. New implementations, upcoming dates and other important information are linked from here. Next to "Admin Announcements" is a changelog that shows more specific changes to the website, such as changes to blocking or WR route running. Next to the changelog is a link to the suggestions page, which allows people to submit, and vote on, suggested changes to the game.
