Running KUBIAK List of Changes

I use this thread to inform everyone of the changes and updates being made to KUBIAK up to the first game of the season.

Please do not post to this thread, this thread is for me to post only.

AUGUST 12

A number of small updates have been made to the numbers posted 5pm on August 11, as I continued to tweak the projections. That should be it for most of the tweaking -- as opposed to updating due to preseason changes. There's plenty of that to come.

Speaking of which, the new version also makes the first updates due to preseason changes:

CAR: Removes WR David Gettis.
PHI: Adds WR Steve Smith.
PIT: Adds WR Jerricho Cotchery.

Please note that two features won't be available until Friday night: punt/kick return yards, and each position colored a different color for easier identification.

Could you re-institute the little "Latest KUBIAK Update" box on the main footballoutsiders.com page that you've had in past years? It's kind of a pain to navigate to this thread to see if/when a new version is available.

It was already there. Check the right side on the front page.

I don't see it either. Running Firefox, if that makes any difference.

It's there. On the right hand side, the blue box has the FOOTBALL OUTSIDERS COLLEGE graphic, then NFL Birthdays Today, and then KUBIAK UPDATE, and then the Fantasy Football Player's Championship graphic. If you're not seeing it, I'm going to guess you are running an ad-blocker that is removing it from the page for some reason.

OK, it's showing up now. I swear it wasn't yesterday. (Sometimes the stuff on the left side is different too. Weird.)

I have the Football Outsiders College banner, The NFL Birthdays Today but nothing else under that. What gives?

Guys, we seem to be having a problem with "only I should be updating this thread." Can we use this thread for announcements of KUBIAK updates only? Thanks.
