I think if a player goes more that 24 hours without a pick in the draft, he should get the next available player on the list be default. This forces managers to make sure they're checking on the draft, and also keeps the draft moving.
Does anyone have a way to reach bokes? We will have to draw a line in the sand at some point to move on. I've emailed him thru the yahoo site and his profile says he hasn't been on ISH for like 5 days. Thoughts and ideas?
I been on this league every year but one. I have one busy/rough week and we're talking about moving on? You need to chill. About to make my picks.
As for the 24 hour rule, if we're going to do something ridiculous like that we might as well do a LIVE draft. I'd much prefer that than to be assigned a random pre-draft order player if I miss a day. What happens if we're rolling along and then the person before you or even several picks before you takes forever (like what happens every year) and then you don't want to pick way in advance and you don't check in for a bit and next thing you know a player you don't want is on your team. We already had this dilemma years back when you made my round 1 pick for me on an assumption. Granted, it wasn't a big deal as that's who I was gonna pick anyways, but you get the point.
With 2 weeks to go, we need to figure something out to keep the ball rolling. That was one suggestion. As Zan said, I would assume most people have smart phones and or internet access better then every 24 hours. If everyone's email on the yahoo site is accurate, that can be a way to either alert people it's their pick, or have the picks emailed back in. Normally people are good to send a short list of picks before logging off for a decent amount of time. I don't want auto picks personally.
Not getting pushy or anything, but I can't see why anyone would have an issue with the 24 hour rule. We're all able to check our email on a daily basis (no?), so there is no reason you can't flip onto the draft to see where your at within a 24 hour period. Plus RapsFan can email players as soon as it's their turn to draft. No excuses, we only have a short amount of time to get this bad boy in.
Got bokes picks...thanks Zan for sending them to me.
I think if we can just keep everyone informed of major scheduling issues, we should be ok. If you're going to be gone with no access for 8 hours, let the group know because maybe more people will be online when the 8 hours is up so we can churn out a few picks to get caught up.
Now that I have all the picks (again assuming Beast's picks are accurate), there are some things I need to do on the site which I'll try and get completed asap.
