my first guess would be 10 minute draft slots. Starting around early afternoon CST, what time zone are you in spygate?

Eastern - and I like the 10 minute idea.

Fair enough.

Just send out 1 more mass e-mail, with the date and time after we get another member or two, and send me the big-board and we'll get it started.

So far we have the date: Sunday, June 29/08

And now we need a set time. I'm thinking 7-ish?

You can send out an e-mail to as an admin, not that I won't just going to tell you how. Go to Users, and to prune users. Then click the inform circle, and select anyone with more than 1 post. That way everyone who is a GM shows up in the list, and you can type in the message and send it to all of them. You can also select, and un-select anyone you want

You can try, if you can't get it, I can do it, not a big deal.


As for the time, these things are a lot harder as an admin than you might expect. I would say start it around 4-5ish. But I will not be here for sure, I have baseball and staying till Monday at the tournament

Oh, was unaware that any Admin ranked poster could do it.

I'll send it out no worries. As for difficulty of coordinating such a task, it's nothing new; I've done it before in two other leagues.

The draft is still this Sunday, June 29th - it will begin at 5:30 PM.

If the person on the clock is not active for their pick for 5-10 minutes, their pick will automatically be BPA in area of need.

I will personally run the draft; but if we have 3 or 4 guys here; then I'll forget it and get VHawk to sim the draft.

I have a very specific plan for my team, simming of the draft will not be acceptable. we need to make sure that everyone is aware of what time the draft and is here for it.

Uh, guys, it's not possible to just sim the draft. The game doesn't come out for over a month yet. And on top of that, the rookies are already on teams, they will have to be cut and then signed to their new team when the game comes out. By simming the draft, I'm assuming he means the admin(s) running the draft will make the pick for the team not prepared. So every team that is prepared will get to make all their own picks.

I really don't think that is what he meant no offense allmadden

"I will personally run the draft; but if we have 3 or 4 guys here; then I'll forget it and get VHawk to sim the draft."

that makes it seem like because all of the admins suddenly dipped this week and most people (actually everyone) is clueless on the time of the draft a lot of people probably won't be here for it.

is it 5:30 Central time? or Eastern Time?

anyone?

3 people were on at the scheduled time for the draft. none of which were admins.

you guys (apart from vhawk who was busy and made this clear) royally fucked up.

I put a lot of time into this league, at least try to make it seem like you care.
