|When submitting your login ID and password on the Login page, an encryption routine runs just prior to sending your credential information. This routine will expand your password before it is sent which is why more dots appear in the password field after you click submit; this is normal. This encryption unfortunately prevents the built in browser feature (like Firefox Password Manager) that offers to save your login information for the next time you visit the website from working. Instead, the Sez17 website stores your login information in a browser cookie that will log you in automatically when you return to the website.
If the Login page is still popping up when you navigate back to the Sez17 website, then your browser security settings may be too high preventing the Sez17 cookie from being stored. The previous section describes how to set Sez17 as a trusted website to make your login experience much much easier. If the Login screen continues to appear after you submit your login information, then your userId or password are being input incorrectly. Check if Num Lock or Caps Lock is on as both the userId and password are case sensative. Click on the Forgot Password link on the Login screen and hit submit to get to the Login Help screen where you can enter your email address to have your user id and password emailed to you to confirm you have the correct login information.

|The purpose of the game is to accumulate the most playdough during the 12 regular season fantasy football weeks. Each fantasy team has a stock symbol and stock value. Members of the Sez Stock Exchange have the option to purchase and sell shares of any fantasy team stock with their current playdough allotment. Each week, the stock value of each team will change based on game statistics and roster changes. Buy low and sell high! Stock prices will rise or fall incrementally between the hours of 9 AM and 5 PM, Monday through Friday. The game will begin after the scoring deadline for week 1 and end on the scoring deadline for week 12 based on the league schedule. Once a player joins the Sez Stock Exchange, he/she receives 10,000 playdough allowing the option to buy/sell from/to (transaction) the Exchange containing an unlimited pool of stock for every team. Each transaction will have a playdough fee based on the number of shares and a flat rate. As much as your liquid assets allow, you may make an unlimited number of transactions. There is currently no limitation to the number of stock shares a player can purchase of their own the fantasy team. In the future, to prevent insider trading, the purchase of own team stock will be limited to 20% of the outstanding shares.|
|To participate in the fantasy stock game, simply click on the Sez Stock Exchange link. Once logged in, the Stock Exchange home page will appear. On this screen, you have the option to join or view the current status of the game.

|After logging into the Sez Stock Exchange, click on the Buy Stock or Sell Stock links at the top to execute the appropriate transaction. You may initiate a transaction at any time but execution of the transaction will only occur while the market is open. The market is open between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM EST, Monday through Friday (weekdays). Any transaction made outside of these hours (while the market is closed) will be saved (as a pending transaction) and executed at 9:00 AM on the next business day at the opening asking price. Note that the previous day closing price may not be the same as the following day opening price for pending transactions. All players will purchase stock at the asking price and sell stock at bid price (may be different). If you wish to change the number of shares for a pending transaction, you may submit another transaction against the same stock with the same or opposite action prior to the 9 AM execution time of the next available execution date. The exchange will cancel any pending transaction when it goes to execute it if the appropriate funds are not available.|
|After logging into the Sez Stock Exchange, click on the Portfolio link at the top to view your stock portfolio. Then click on the View Limit Orders button. The corresponding page that loads will display your current limit orders and has a Create Limit Order button to create a new limit order. The create limit order page is split into four sections which include action (buy or sell), shares (exactly, atleast, at most), stock and price (limit) fields. Fill in the appropriate fields and click the Submit button to enter your new limit order which goes into effect on the next stock price change.|
|When buying stock on the Sez Stock Exchange, you pay the asking price multipled by the number shares plus a transaction fee. When selling stock on the Sez Stock Exchange, you pay the bid price multipled by the number shares plus a transaction fee. Every transaction is subject to a flat and share-based transaction fee. The flat fee for any transacation is 1 playdough. The share-based fee is 0.02 playdough per share. Hence for the purchase of 10 shares at an asking price of 50 playdough, the transaction fee would be 1 playdough (flat) plus 0.20 playdough (share-based) for a total transaction cost of 1.20 playdough.Once a transaction is executed, it may take up to 30 seconds for the transaction to update your profile. If your profile is not updated after that time, you may have attempted to purchase stock at a total cost greater than your current playdough or you may have attempted to sell more stock than you own. Both attempts will result in a warning message on the website. Please remember the transaction fees when making a purchase as the total cost may exceed your liquid assets.|

|Once you receive the email notification that the event has begun, you have a set time limit to make as large a profit as possible. To do so, you will need to sell your items at a profit. What items you ask? You will need to sell the items for which you control which are listed on your Role page. For all roles except for the buyer, someone will contact you to purchase items from you. You do not start with any quantity of items so you will need to communicate with your buyer contact (listed on the Buy Item page) to purchase the items you need from that person/role. You can mark-up your sale price to maximize your profit. Just be warned, if your price is too high, you may not be able to sell your items which will result in zero profit. The goal is to be the participant with the most profit once the event ends.
To play, contact the seller of the items that you need through whichever medium best works for you, for example: office visit, Skype, Mattermost, text, email, IM, UPS, FEDEX or US mail. Once you come to agreement with the buyer or seller, you can initiate a request to buy or sell items by clicking on the Buy Item or Sell Item, respectively. A notification will be sent to the person you selected in your request. That person can Approve or Disapprove your request. You can view all of your pending and approved requests from the Transactions page. A transaction request can only be approved if the seller already has approved purchase(s) of the quantity of items that have been requested. Once you have approved transactions to buy and sell (except for the Buyer role) the needed items, you are done. All approved transactions are final; no approved transactions can be cancelled or returned. When the event time expires, the Final Summary page will display the final results for all players.
