To make it clear, it is not expected that you make your pick or be on here from 10pm to 8am, where ever you are. For Oakland people that means Oakland time, for TMC that means Spain time, for me Perth time, Pawno and aussie east Australia time (3 hours ahead of me if I'm not mistaken).
What you do have to do is make your pick within 12 hours of it being your turn from 8am to 10pm your time. To speed up the process, since most people in this are living in Oakland, me, TMC, pawno and aussie have to check the forum before 10pm Oakland time each day, making sure it is not our turn and if it is, we have to make our pick. Pawno, you are in Oakland right now right? If so, you have it easier until you get back to Brisbane.
If things are going to slow in one week or any time there after, we will all have to give a list of the players we want and then update it as the draft goes along, deleting players that have already been picked. Unfortunately, not all of us have our first posts on the first page in this thread, making it a hassle, but TheBodyGuard is second post in page 2, so just two posts need to be deleted for his first post to be on the first page. Always Next can have his player list in his first post which right now is way doen in page two and will have to stay there.
If we go smoothly, things will be done pretty fast, but if not, we'll have to have a 4 hour rule
4 hr rule??? WTF
How about we just go on the 16-24 hr rule that we all originally talked about and if the end of the draft is biting into valuable tipoff time then we will impose a 4hr rule... the only reason i say this is cause im about to go to bed in oakland and wake up in like 8 or so hours... i dont wanna get **** ******* or ###### #### because there was a time limit... lets just leave any short time embargos to later on.... im sure this draft will all fly thru it.
I've been in the forum league drafts for four years and almost each time we've been going slow and had to have the four hour rule. In one weekif things are going slow, like only two rounds done, the rule will have to come in, otherwise we'll be scrambling the last week
yeah but 4 hours is way unfair... come on man think about it.. what if someone is asleep... now i think a 12 hour rule is fair (it gives people enough time to sleep off that hangover <counting they didnt post some drunk pick before they went to bed ... GIMME BEASLEY. I MET HIM AT REHAB
8 or 12 hour rule seems only fair... if your not checking before you go to bed or before you wake up... then u downright should be letting yahoo settings pick for you.
Read my first post on this subject above
10pm to 8am, wherever the person picking is (and we know this in advance now), that person does not have to make the pick, BUT they only will have four hours after 8am, WHEN OR IF WE COME TO THE POINT OF HAVING THE 4 HOUR TIME RULE.
I think we should also have it so if it is your pick before 9pm "your time" and you didn't come on here to make your pick, you have until 9am the next day to do so. Point is, check the forum regularly, especially up until 9pm, 10pm preferably, and then in the morning before going to school/work whatever.
Being active on here, checking this thread a few times a day, this draft will finish ahead of time
