Sunday works for me anytime. During the week will not work at all. My work blocks this. Time is not that important, but Day of the Week is vital.

Seems long to me but this is fine

I agree, can we get rid of this?
Trade Reject Time: 2 -
Very nervous about rejecting trades. To the point I say if a trade is rejected we seek outside help with it. This could kill our league if someone dumps his players in hopes to get some cards in loopsided trades. If a trade is questionable we use the forum as a place for the traders to discuss why they want to do the trade from both sides

Can we extend this?
Allow Draft Pick Trades: No -

Does this mean the WW is only open 2 days a week?
Waiver Type: Weekly rolling list based on standings -
Agree but have a better suggestion. Can we lock the Waivers during the games and open them from Tuesday to Sunday before games? That way everyone has the chance to watch the games and not just grab players from those who might need them and worst really has top priority? Like we all send our claims to the Commissioner and he does the WW changes on Tuesday based on top picks.

Cool have of the league makes the playoffs
The weekend is definitely best as that is when most people will be available. It can be moved to a Saturday or maybe later in the afternoon at a later date. Everyone should pre-rank their players anyways, but the draft is always most fun when everyone is there.
The "cant-cut" list is relatively small from my experience. It's mostly to keep someone from getting angry with their poor performing team and dumping players they shouldn't. Only guys like Cam Newton, Aaron Rodgers, Calvin Johnson, etc. end up being on the list. Guys like Dwayne Bowe, Greg Jennings, Michael Turner, etc. won't be on it. We can get rid of it though, just wanted to explain it more thoroughly.
I put Commissioner review as far as trades go. Only those trades that are deemed lopsided by the league majority (5 or more not including the traders of course) should be rejected IMO. Nobody likes an overbearing commissioner so every trade will go to the people.
The Waiver time means that people have 2 days in which to put a waiver claim on a dropped player. Once the 2 days are up, the player is made a free agent and anyone can grab him regardless of waiver position.
You are actually already correct on how the waivers will work. Rosters lock on Sunday once the games start (if there is a game on Thursday, only those players playing on that day are locked) and unlock for waivers on Wednesday morning. This is all done automatically. Wednesday morning the waivers process in order of standings starting from the bottom and all players not claimed are free agents.
