Upgrade your pool to a SuperPool
For just $15, upgrade your pool to a SuperPool to unlock these awesome features:
Hide picks before kickoff
Only reveal everyone's picks once matches kick-off (reduces risk of tactical picking by snooping over others' shoulders!)
Default picks will not count on your pool leaderboard. On your results page, they'll be shown crossed out. (valid only in tournaments that use defaults)
Add a Twitter widget to your pool overview page showing your latest tweets. Just add your Twitter username. Also includes a 'T' for Twitter icon top right.
Add a classic 'F' for Facebook icon to the top right of the header area of your pool, linking out to your page on Facebook.
The standard pool permits anyone to apply to join, but seeks your confirmation before they are made full members. Upgrade for more flexibility:
No application control: anyone can join up instantly. Perfect if you're running a competition, or don't want your inbox overloaded with 'Joe Blogs has applied to join your pool' emails.
Add your own password to the pool: only those who know it will be able to join. A great option for private competitions, especially office pools.
Big brand? Consider a MegaPool!
Designed for bigger brands, the MegaPool product comes with all the features of the SuperPool plus:
- Usage of the advertising slots in your pool section (disable them or run your own ads)
- Enforce mandatory opt-in: players can be asked to permit us to share their contact details with you as part of joining the pool
- Run your RSS feed inside the pool
- Access our professional services team: we can set up and organise the pool for you
Pricing varies depending on requirements and what kind of engagement package we can put together for you. Please enquire directly.
Handle big pools well
While there are no enforced upper limits on pool sizes, the standard pool is designed for around 30 players. When you have many more players than that, usability suffers: pool leaderboards and results pages are very long and slow to load. With the upgrade picks will bunch together on results pages to render neatly and leaderboards will paginate.
Add a personalised URL to your pool like this:
www.superbru.com/varsitycup/pool/yournamefor neater, easier promotion.
Upload your own wallpaper to sit behind the site when players are inside pool section.
Write news articles
Write news articles, which will appear on your pool overview page, and control whether or not your players can add comments to them. Great for announcing weekly winners.
Disable pool activity board
The pool activity board is a chat wall which appears on your pool overview page, allowing your members to chat with each other. Upgrade for the flexibility to disable this if you would prefer not to have it.
Integration and downloads
Add a <%=writeBrandName(4)%> widget to your site
Insert a snippet of code into your website to render out the current top 10 positions on your leaderboard and a link to your pool.
What does it cost?
All these features (and a few more we hope to build along the way) cost just:
Per pool, per tournament. Pay online using Visa or Mastercard and upgrade immediately.
