I've just purchased tipping software as a plugin for the site.

I'm currently configuring it and hope to have it ready sometime next week.

I am going to get it operational in time so that we can run a test on the software during the 2016 finals series. If it performs as advertised, we can use this for footy tipping in the 2017 season.

It works simply - each member who wishes to play joins the pool. You'll be notified when there is 48 and 24 hours before lockout so that you can get your tips in. Once the round is complete, the software will total the round score and also the leaderboard for the competition.

I'll let you know when it's ready for you to sign up.

So there is a lockout before the first game of the round? Sometimes I change my mind during the round if there's late changes.

I think so. I'll know more once I set everything up for the test run.

I have setup the tipping competition for Round 23 as another trial. I'll run this right through the finals series so that we can all give it a good trial.

You'll see a Menu item at the top called "Pickem". You need to select the "Pool" you wish to join - you have your choice of 2016 AFL Premiership Season" (Round 23 only) and "2016 AFL Finals Series". You can join one or both. To make your selections, you'll need to click on the "Manage your Picks" link. Then, click on "Edit Tips" and on the right hand side, click on your selection.

So there is a lockout before the first game of the round? Sometimes I change my mind during the round if there's late changes.
I have just setup Round 23 and found that each game can be locked out at a given time so I have entered the start time of each game as the lockout time.

Happy tipping!

Post your thoughts and suggestions here. If I can put any suggestions into effect I'll try.

I'm on my phone and can't find the Manage your Picks link. I'm seeing a table with Picks Distribution and I can see I'm active in Round 23.
ETA: got it done when a reminder came up and I could edit my tips :)
