inPoints & ProFSL Invitationals

What are inPoints?
These are points that each member can earn during each sport's season.  These points are collected for all leagues and members, and the top portion of members in a sport will be invited to the ProFSL Invitational.

Alright, what is an Invitational?
The Invitational is a head-to-head fantasy league that is free to enter but awards cash and other prizes :money: at the end of the year based on the size of the sport in the community.  From 2009 through 2012, the Invitational was a short tournament, but in 2013 the concept changed to a season-long league to give the event greater presence.  The more inPoints a member has from the previous season (in a given sport), the higher their seed will be in an Invitational.  These leagues are setup so higher seeds have advantages such as better draft selection, first choice, and higher budgets.

Okay, how do I get some inPoints?
Easy!  You can accrue inPoints several ways.
  • A majority of inPoints are earned through league participation.  Each league within ProFSL's community leagues will receive points based on their activity at the end of a sport's season.  The Commissioner distributes these points according to ProFSL guidelines in an effort to award successful teams and active participants of the league.
  • Regularly participate in our discussion forums.  Top participating members are noted each month in a stickied thread at the top of each sport's discussion forum.  Note that posting new topics carries the most weight since it sparks conversation.
  • Recruit members to ProFSL.  If you recruit someone to the site through word of mouth, email, posting a classified, social media, or any other means then respond to our official recruiters tracking thread.  Since these are not specific to an individual sport, you can build up a bank of credits and exchange them for inPoints when you are ready!


Earning inPoints through Tournaments
As mentioned, you can earn inPoints by participating in leagues, but this also applies to tournaments.  From time to time, we will have contests and tournaments (mostly fantasy league style), and the top participants will receive inPoints for that sport.  Below is a history of Invitationals and tournaments at ProFSL as well as awards given to leagues and Commissioners.

League of the Year
Sport sections of ProFSL have changed over time.  For example, inPoints for NBA and NCAAB leagues used to bucketed for the same Invitational (NBA) whereas now they are separate.  The awards for League of the Year (and Commissioner of the Year below) were also handled in this manner.
