    Time Limit on "new version" popup

    soooooo maybe this is crazy, but...if I am playing BM11 out of personal preference (because I find that to be the most stable, acceptable version)...I feel like I shouldn't be spammed every day with "BM2012 is now available!!"

    Especially since that version is 6 years old at this point
    aaaand since I bought it, and just don't like it

    I would recommend either:
    1) stop these popups (best choice!)
    2) have the popups cease if that version exists in the SportsMogul folder (next best choice!)
    3) at the goddamn least, have the popups cease at a given year. So, say, stop spamming a user to buy BM2012 when its 2014? or 2016? Simple clock check should do the trick, no?

    Why is it that we are entering into 2018 and BM 11 is the game people seem to enjoy the most. Also, mods have not been updated and it seems like people have just given up completely on this game, which makes me very sad.

    A number of changes the game made after '11 have caused a decline in play-ability of the product.

    I'd at least consider BBM Diamond if, for no other reason, you're able to edit ratings directly (rather than having to change predicted stats to find the right balance). In my opinion, this was the best addition in the last few versions. So much easier than editing predicted stats to change one simple rating. There was nothing worse than trying to continually modify a pitcher's predicted stats to increase their movement, endurance, and so on without screwing up the other ratings. You just toggle up/down every category you want to edit.

    I'm the opposite - I hate the new rating editor...I would love to see the ability to use either - enter predicted stats, and it assigns the ratings, or enter the ratings directly.
