Alert when auction starts for player on Watchlist

The Watchlist feature is nice, but it would deliver more value if owners got a special notice (presumably email) when an auction starts for a player who is on their Watchlist. Ideally, there would be a user-configurable setting to turn off that type of notification, for owners who don’t want it.


Bumping this one – I think it would be a big improvement if the Watchlist was announced (even just on the email that announces the auction).

A lot of times I’ll throw a guy on the watchlist because I read some buzz on him, and then forget about him for months. It would be a nice reminder to read up on somebody when they are put up for bid.

I get an email every time an auction is started that includes the name of the player. Are you looking for something like a second email reminding you that the player was on your watchlist?

Precisely. Essentially a reminder saying “this guy is on your watchlist”. I get 4, 5, 6 auctions some days. I use the watchlist to mark guys that I don’t really know.

Honestly best would be a second category saying “send me an email any time someone on my watchlist gets cut/traded/bid for auction”.

As of now the watchlist is just a scratchpad to write names on, which is useful, but it could be more so.

I think a good solution may be to highlight players who are on a team’s watchlist, both in the various transaction lists and on the current auction lists. Sending emails is pretty costly and we already send out a lot of emails without sending each auction notification individually. They are currently sent to all owners in a league at once.


That solution is a bajillion times better.


Ok, I’ve rolled out a light yellow highlight for players that are on your watchlist. This will appear on transaction lists and live auction lists. An example:

Let me know what you think!


Hey Niv, this update doesn’t seem to be showing in safari. I cleared the cache and it wasn’t highlighting. It does in chrome and another browser that isn’t WebKit, but provides a user agent that is safari.

This looks good though, and definitely helps to remind me to use the watchlist more often (removes Phil Hughes from list).

It’s showing up in safari now, not sure if anything changed or if the css info was cached separately.

I probably should have pushed a CSS cache buster with this change, but didn’t. Guessing it was that.

Looks great on Chrome

Great implementation, @nivshah. Thanks!

@fquizon said it all better than I did.
