Either did I. Thanks for pointing this out. I checked and I don't know how that came to be since last year it was a standard draft and the settings should have been saved as such. At any rate, I've just changed it to a "Standard Live Draft". I just read to see what the differences were between the two. I would be willing to try a Auction Draft if the majority of manager are up for it. I'm guessing it would be a longer process to draft Auction style over Standard, so that might be a small concern.

Yahoo allows you to do a Mock draft in both styles. You could have the other managers try it out in the mock draft and see what we all like. I was actually planning to try the mock draft myself since I wanted to familiarize myself with it.

I think most manager are expecting the Standard Live Draft but I can change it if the majority want to do the Auction Live Draft.

I usually do at least 1 mock draft to make sure the software is working on my computer. I know yahoo also provides a testing tool as well but usually like to do one mock draft anyway, so I might as well use it for testing my software.
:)
That's a good idea. If I'm in the mood and have the time I might give an Auction Draft a try too just to see how it works. If you guys give it a try, post your thoughts on it. Thanks.

I just checked the AoC FF League. We have 7 players in it. I have max managers set to 16 so we can take up to 9 more people if any wants to play or have fun learning. If the AoC FF League does not have an even number of players or isn't full. Then 2 days prior to the draft, I will begin hanging out in the yahoo FF chat rooms to advertise the league for more managers.

I just checked the league again. We have 9 players in it. Jmaster1001 dropped out saying something about an odd number of players in the league. If he had stayed in we would have had 10 players. I usually don't become concerned about the number of players until there is less than an hour to draft time. So Jmaster1001, there's still time to rejoin if you like. In addition I have posted the league on the Dashboard wall. Jmaster1001 if you dropped out for other reasons that's fine but don't be to concern at the League's numbers until we are like 30 minutes to draft time. Yahoo public joining usually don't join until there is about an hour to draft time. I've seen the entire league fill up before when there was about an hour to go. People of this generation live for the moment and they don't plan ahead. Personally, I think it's their weakness and will be their downfall in life but I'm not responsible for their actions so I obverse and live with it. They're the ones who have to deal with any consequences in their life style.

Basically, what old man fodder is saying is... "Get off my lawn you damn whipper snappers!". ;)

It looks like we won't have a full league this year. Hope that's fine with everyone.

Okay, sorry everyone for not getting the draft to kick off on time. We had an odd number of players and I didn't delete enough of the dead beats from last season. My bad. We need to come up with a new draft day and time.

We could try a late draft around 11:30pm EST tonight but I don't know if anyone will see it in time. So that leave us Sunday, Monday and Tuesday since the first game is Wednesday night

To give us time and to make things simple. I'm picking Tuesday as our new draft day. Times that are available are 9am to 6:15pm, and 11pm to 11:45pm EST. I picked 6:15pm since that's close to our original 9pm time. If I see any new times open up I'll try to get something closer to the original time.

In the mean time if 6:15pm EST doesn't work for you please offer times that do. If enough people want another time let me know and I can change it provided that time is still available when I go to get it.

@KingHoward - I thought I saw someone join making us even. If you dropped out we could be odd again. Anyway, you're welcome to come back and if we are odd just prior to the draft then we can sacrifice you then. LOL
