Not everyone knows that or maybe they haven't logged on for some time or maybe they know but don’t care so I think SC later gave leaders (and coleaders?) the ability to opt hoodies out of derby.

i haven’t experienced it myself but I’ve read some posts of a bug where players had opted out or had a baby farm opted out yet somehow for the next derby those farms were opted in so you may want to check settings again before a derby starts
Thank you so much for the info! I’ll try it next time I need to opt out. 😊
