Cancelled games: How do postponed/cancelled games affect scoring?
 
A cancelled game is one that will not be played in a reasonable timeframe like the other games on the original picks sheet.
ie. If a game was originally supposed to be played in week 1, but, gets moved to week 12, then it is considered "cancelled" for week 1.
 
A postponed game is one where the start time is changed, but, is still played in a reasonable timeframe like the other games. ie. the same "week".
The scheduled start time for postponed games will be changed on the picks page. It is up to each player to make a pick before the new start time.

Cancelled Games for Pickem-style pools


Pickem scores for cancelled games: 

Everyone gets a win, for cancelled games, no matter who they picked, as long as they made a pick.  
The game will NOT be locked prior to its originally scheduled start time.  So, everyone has a fair chance to make a pick.

People in pools with ranking type scoring methods will get credit for a win and receive their ranking points, 
as long as they made a pick with a ranking. 
        

Pool admins can change picks/rankings as necessary.

One option, that some admins, with ranking-style scoring methods, have employed is to 
bump everyone's rankings up by 1, that were originally below the postponed game ranking, and set their postponed rank to zero.

Eg. If a player had assigned 3 ranking points to the postponed game, then set that to zero 
and the game, for that player, that was ranked 2, would be changed to 3 and the game that player had as a 1 would be changed to a 2.


Please note, that this remedy may not work for ranking style pools, where losses count negative, because a loss could be increased, 
which may unfairly decrease that player's score.

Eg. If a player originally ranked a loss as a 2, then you bump that game to a 3, then they will have negative 3 points, instead of negative 2 points.
    

Cancelled Games for Survivor / Streak style pools


Survivor / Streak scores for cancelled games: 

Once an official announcement has been made that a game is cancelled, that game will be "locked" to prevent any more survivor/streak picks being made.
Anyone who picks either of those 2 teams will get a win.

Pool admins can change picks as necessary.
