Thumbs down All-Star Voting in Online Leagues

I like the feature, but it kind of sucks when just a handful of teams actually vote in an online league. Couldn't the game be setup to auto-vote for any team that does not submit a ballot right before the rosters get generated? It would be nice to have a full vote even if it is AI to offset the homer votes.

You could always make a house rule that you can't vote for more then 2-3 home team players.

A hybrid of human voting and AI voting for those w/o human input (even if they have a human GM) would be great. Not sure how it would be done. It would have to be done at the last possible moment with AI checking for human ballots.

You could also try to make the vote "mandatory" for all GM's?
I don't think it's too much to ask.

Having said that, is there anyway to track which teams have and have not cast ballots?

The commissioner can see who has and has not voted on the voting page (forgot what the button is called, but it will list who has cast ballots)

The hybrid human/AI voting idea is good. It would be a useful option for muting irrational GM votes.

In the online leagues that I'm in, I vote for my own players only if they're very clearly the top choices. After all, why risk an injury in a game that doesn't count in the standings? Worse, one might have to pay an "All-Star selection" bonus to a guy who gets hurt.

Can the Commissioner see the voting totals?
