I thought I'd start a thread incase anyone wants to talk about how the draft is going.

I'll start....

BSparkman hasn't been on PD in more than 3 weeks. its been almost 4 weeks since he's logged onto our league site.

I've sent him an e-mail

I need to chill a little. I knew this was going to happen and still I'm totally pissed off about it!

Seriously commish, you gotta find a way to speed this draft up. The fist 3 guys were on the ball, and aren't messing around.

As each hour goes by that you don't draft, this gets more and more funny.

how are we supposed to know when its our turn? Speed sent me an e-mail, which was fine, but how else was I supposed to know it was my turn? And where the hell are the player rankings? All I see is an alphabetical listing of players. Sorry, but this draft is Bush league commish

Well, I believe that if you click on "Toys" on the toolbar at the top of the screen, you'll find a link entitled "2011-2012 Player Stats" in boldface type.

Draft tab, scroll Available players (bottom right), Add to list button puts the highlighted player on your Contingency List at the top,right of the page, Contingency list holds twenty players, it will reduce once players are chosen ahead of you, so you have to keep it full, hence check daily or more during the draft. You can move players up and down your contingency list on how you want them chosen.

It's not Busch league, its just confusing at first, but fun once you get the hang of it. Really just ask and someone will help any of the new guys.

Bush league? Good lord.

Here are four threads Jose put together for first timers (or returning folks who desired a refresher). He can't make you check in with this sub-forum daily - I'm sure Jose would have read them out loud to you if physically possible.

Can someone get a hold of Fishers? If he picks, then I can draft quickly and not hold everybody up

I just tried to log in, but it says the draft has been reset. I really wanted to get my second round pick in tonight.

I just got home to make my picks : /

Sorry for the hold up but I was checking throughout the day until 5 then had to go out for dinner and some errands.

Edit: Speed mentioned he saw me logged in a couple hours ago. I was checking where we were from my phone (bc I was looking forward to finally draft) and didn't want to make a mistake from my phone's browser.

Randy Wrinkles here's how to put players on your continency list, you'll need it for our other leagues, if we don't get this one back up and running.

Was your contingency list full?

I didn't use the contingency list to make sure I didn't double up on positions with having 2 picks in a row. I didn't think it would be an issue since I'm behind a computer at work all day and most of the night. I'll fill it up all the way if that's what it takes to keep the league going.
