Questions
How do you get owners to get involved?
I run a league that started out as all people who worked at the college where I worked as well as friends and relatives. We are now down from 12 to 10 teams and when I post messages on the site, nobody responds. People don't take bye players out of their lineup until just before gameday. Trade requests go unseen. Ideas?

    In my league, we implemented a private Facebook group for the members, which people are FAR more active on than they were on the built-in league message board. Also, we added league dues so everyone has something at stake ($10) and made weekly prizes, like $1 for the weekly top score, so people are more interested in checking in every week.
    The league started with mostly people who hadn't played much before, and I was really worried about people getting bored (especially if they kept losing) but we are in our 4th season and everyone seems to be having fun. Even teams that used to slack are keeping up like champs.

    easier said than done. I always ask if they promise to check in several times a week and they promise.
