The message below was emailed to all Commissioners. In case it found your spam folder, please see below:
Long Live FourPlay.
Hope everyone had a great off-season. This message is late so let’s dig in.
The new way to FourPlay is to visit the website > Click PLAY or LOGIN > Login or Sign up
Members can play on mobile, tablet, laptop, or desktop. If you like watching games with your laptop, you’ll really like it. Either way, it will be an adjustment.
Commissioners can edit the START & STOP week of any league member on the STANDINGS page. The tools are in the left column. Use a laptop or desktop and make sure the view is large enough so the tools are not cropped out of the frame.
Your new tools allow you to edit the start and stop week for each member or newly joining member. The point totals adjust accordingly.
You can also delete members. Using the “X”. I recommend you adjust their start and stop weeks if necessary before using the “X” to delete.
Commissioners can invite new members at anytime during the season. The link is located at the bottom of the STANDINGS page.
Forgot password and invitations are fixed. That was tough, they were disconnected during the server migration. Thanks for working through this with us.
League Management Tools Examples:
1. If you have a league member that signed up during Week 1 but did not play and was counted as a loser.
Go to STANDINGS > Click the Pencil (located to the left of the league member) > Change “Starting Week” to Week 2 > Click Save. This will remove them from Week 1’s point total and reconcile your Master Standings.
2. If you have a league member you want to REMOVE and they are counted as a loser for Week 1.
Complete the Step Above > Then Click the “X” next to the league members name > Select “Remove before week ‘2’ from the dropdown > Click “Remove”.
You can reach us for support by texting 248-518-0719 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for reading,

The mobile link to “PLAY” on the site was adding ‘www’ in front of play.fourplayfootball.com/login and producing an error page. The proper link has NO ‘www’.
We’ve replaced the broken link with an image that says LOGIN and have also added this in the slider menu.
Commissioners have reported issues with deleted/abandoned league members persistently showing up in the Standings. Working on this tonight.
Good luck to everyone who picked the Thursday game!

League members need to make sure they are NOT including www when accessing https://play.fourplayfootball.com/login

-All pending invites have been sent. Remind your future league members to check their email or spam folder.
-Forgot Password is fixed.
During server migration it broke this process. SMS invites worked but email invites disconnected.
Please be aware you have the power to edit any league members “start” and “stop” date on the STANDINGS page of the new web version. You cannot make these edits in the App.
When you make edits it will automatically reconcile your Standings.
We are here to help with any questions and feedback.

Thank you for pulling together the launch Saturday and yesterday. It means a lot.
Your league management tools are located on the STANDINGS page (web version only). To the left of the league member names are icons. You can drop players, invite players mid-season, and determine the start & stop week for players so that the points in your league total properly.
I strongly recommend members play on the web version. It’s not as convenient but has more features and will make your life easier.
-Forgot Password & Invites should be up and running shortly. It was a heart attack and thanks for your help handling the situation by emailing picks. Keep you posted later today.
Updating this post later this morning.
UPDATE: (Jan 8, 2022 @ 4:12PM EST)
The Head Commish is alive and will be helping with all league requests. I won’t be leaving the office until everyone’s league is reconciled and proper. So, for at least a week.
Thank you to all of the Commissioners, Betty, & the Development Team for helping carry the torch this year. You guys have been getting crushed.
The servers have been overloaded the last few weeks as I’m sure you are aware. We have a back up server online for this weekend to balance the load. Also, we started the process of migrating to a new server that will better serve our stock market like traffic during kick-offs and 4th quarters.
Can a team join mid-season?
YES, and we encourage inviting quality members who show interest during the season. More league members means more weekly blood (losers) and increases the excitement of your league.
Pro Tip: Experienced leagues require the team who invites a friend to vouch or “sponsor” the rookie team in the event they disappear after losing.
How do I invite more teams into my league during the season?
The same link you used at the beginning of the season stays in the app for the Commissioner all year.
If league members want to invite friends, have them send you their email address so you can send the invitation because it can only come from you.
How do I remove a team?
Only the Commissioner can remove a team. From the app homepage click on the “# of teams”:
A list of the teams in your league will appear with removal buttons next to each team name.
What happens to the leaderboard when a team is removed?
The team removed is frozen in the standings for the rest of the season. If the pick window is open and a player is removed (common during week 1) then your standings will need to be reconciled. This is because the player dropped and didn’t lock picks making them a loser during weekly action.
If your standings are off, please email support and we’ll reconcile your standing before kickoff of the next week.
Occasionally, mega losers will want to drop late in the season. In this event, these LOSERS should finish the current week and you should remove them BEFORE the pick window opens for the next week (this season it’s Thursday at Noon EST).
The removed team will be frozen in the standings and visible for the rest of the season so your standings make sense at year end.
What happens if the football game ends in a tie?
A tie is a loss.
What happens if there are no winners in my league for the week?
This is called “NO BLOOD” and usually happens 1 or 2 weeks each season. Most leagues have their Commissioner double the juice for the following week. However, it is up to each league to decide. Also, don’t forget to have your Commissioner change the juice back to its normal level for your league for the following week.
What happens if there are no losers in my league for the week?
This is also a “NO BLOOD” situation. Most leagues have their Commissioner double the juice for the following week. However, it is up to each league to decide.
What happens if the game is cancelled last minute?
If you pick a team that has a game cancelled at the last minute the pick counts as a win. If there is enough notice of the cancellation we will reach out to users to have them select a different team.
What happens when a player doesn’t make their picks by the pick deadline?
Not making all 4 picks results in a loss. However, you can still make late picks if you miss the pick deadline and there are still more games left by using the “Late Picker Powerup”. The Late Picker selects 4 random teams for you from the remaining games. If you don’t like the random picks, you can try again (max 4 times total) for 4 new random picks.
