We don't use OOTPOU anymore. We've migrated the OOTPOU functions to STATS+

As far as getting assigned and signed up, someone from the GB will have to help you with that.

Ok, but Statsplus only shows BBA... I am in UMEBA. Also, I can't find how the export process is supposed to work... I can see on home screen two choices: export to file, export to FTP. What am I supposed to do, and where do I send the export?

Export to ftp.

And UMEBA should be on StatsPlus, too. I'll look after dinner... out someone else can.

Ok, meanwhile, I have another question... so I went to Free Agents screen, and have tried to make offers to free agents. I clicked on twenty different ones, every single one of them says "I am not interested in joining your organization". Am I doing it wrong? This is supposed to be free agent signing, right? And I have money.

Thanks....

It's going to be that way for the UMEBA teams until Preseason, so you have one more sim to wait. We wanted the BBA teams to get first crack.

Recte44, are you referring to free agents, or statsplus not showing UMEBA? If free agents, there appears to be no restriction to making offers to international free agents, so is that on the table for UMEBA? In that case, they are "signing bonuses" as contrasted with salaries... does the money come from the same pool?

Still same question as earlier, too: how do I export my team?

Thanks! I feel I have been thrown in the deep end, here.... and am pretty clueless as to what I am supposed to do ;-)

Thanks! How do I get on slack? I have never used it before.... sorry I am so ignorant. This is the first time I have ever done an online league with OOTP and OOTP 20 is my first OOTP experience.

Thanks again!

No need to apologize, we're happy to help. You should have an invite to slack in your email (the address you provided on your application). Alternatively we can PM here but slack is an instant messaging system better suited for conversation.

After chatting with Stephen on the GM's corner, I chased this down and added some additional depth and detail in places. I think it's getting almost useful again. :)
