    Is there an information guide to pickem somewhere?

    So many questions, basically.

    How do you leave a pool?
    What happens if you miss a week?
    What is the right action via the ACP once a week has completed?
    What is the right action via the ACP once a pool has completed?
    Do pools just sit in the "currently participating" even once completed?
    How do you run the same pool next year? Do you have to create a new one, delete the existing weeks, what?

    You don't. None of the Pool Apps I've used over the past decade have that ability (Yahoo, ESPN, NFL.com, MLB.com, Fox Sports, CBS Sportsline, NBC Sports etc), so I didn't bother adding it in as its not a common feature. I've thought about adding the ability for Admins to remove people, but see no need for self removal (just my opinion). Im not opposed to adding it, just explaining why its not there.

    You fall behind in the overall standings. Doesn't "break" anything, its just that you fall behind. I've been in many pools that the winner has missed a week and made up ground over several weeks. Miss more than 1 tho and its very hard to come back and win.

    Once all games for that week have been scored, the week is "complete". There are no manual and automatic "settings", it just checks to see that all games have been scored. I believe in the next version I changed it to post a different message on the leaderboard for the week once all games have been scored

    Edit the Pool and change the Pool Status to Final.

    Nope, when you change the Pool Status to Final, a different message displays.

    Thank you for participating in the Draw Pool Testing Pool.

    This pool is now final.

    You create a New Pool. The old pools should stay in place for historical purposes for a couple years.
