    TheRealHalupka, -Cougars-, BPHusker, qclassic 22, tar heel, Azwethinkweiz, -Balla-, Austin1990, matthew34brown,BDSDIGITAL

    When austin1990 joined he was not given coaches goals or, the opportunity to earn XP. Its a glitch that has happened in a few other ODs. The problem is that unlike "Transfer Failed" there's no workaround as of yet. We have a few imperfect solutions, but none of them will fix the problem completely.

    1. Restart the whole OD
    We would lose the progress everyone has made, and we would have to start the entire season over.

    2. Have austin1990 retire every 2-3 weeks and reinvite him with new coaching levels. So he can level up.
    It won't be perfect. But it would keep us from restarting. Just a headache for me and him. No progress lost, we keep going right from where we are.

    3. Or we can try having everyone remove themselves, have someone save, relaunch, and advance. Then reinvite everyone.
    This would be good if we could guarantee it would work, or at the very least, not make it worse. Some ODs have tried this and had more coaches come back with no goals or XP. We would lose our recruit boards, and coach skills. I would restart the league with everyone at level 10 and we would go from there. No lost progress, but a headache nonetheless.

    Please vote in the poll before the scheduled Monday advance.

    The problem with a restart is this I gonna happen every time someone quits. So when madden or something come out we'll have this whole thing happen again. Therefore what's the point.

    I don't have a problem redoing the coach every few game weeks, but it'll screw with the statistics for his coach. The full restart is at the bottom of my choices fwiw.

    I vote option 2. That seems like the best option. Option 1 wouldnt work because everytime someone leaves we could have the same problem causing more restarts. option 3 could work, or it could make it worse and cause a restart. plus i just won back to back user games. That wont happen very often. haha

    I don't think redoing his coaching level every few weeks works either. I remember someone saying the new level wouldn't stick. I really don't think there's a work around for this.

    It honestly doesn't matter to me. Whatever you guys decide to come up with I'm fine with.

    I don't care either way. If we have to restart, so be it.

    If it doesn't work tonight I've got a file, saved from this week. I may try to resurrect it and see if tht works. If we can't make it work tonight I'll restart tomorrow morning. We won't create coaches this time. Just use the ones in the game.

    Its really up to you hornfaninbama . Obv a total restart would not be the best.

    If you are up to re-adding the coach every couple of weeks then I would say go with that option.

    Any results from your tests?

    Also, still not seeing tags. Don't know why not, but still not getting them.

    I've been lazy trying to quote, copy and paste. I'll go the long way from here on out.

    Tests didn't work. I'm advancing now to see if we can get him in the next week. Since assassin4life was booted the same week that may be an issue. From what I understand dropping and readding won't work either. If the advance and invite won't work I'll try and resurrect the existing file, and I that won't work ill get the reboot up in the morning.

    We talked about using re-rated rosters before and the consensus was to use just names.
