Couchmanagers is up

Postby TheRock » Thu Mar 08, 2007 10:28 am

Ok, the couchmanagers guy was up all night getting private drafts working for us. We're the beta testers so we might see some issues, but on the whole it is in place and I know he will work with us with to keep it going smoothly.

So get on over there and get signed up for our draft. I think you can use this url: http://www.couchmanagers.com/baseball/joindraft.php?draftnum=2009

When we all get over there I think there's a way I can re-enter all the picks we have so far. In the meantime, we'll keep going here until everyone gets over there.

Let me know if you have any problems.

Oh, and you'll need the secret password, which is "Madison".

And half of you are already there, so apparently it works. Cool.

I've done a couple slow drafts over there, and I gotta tell you by the mid-rounds most everyone is queueing up their next few players and it's not uncommon for several picks to fire off as soon as the guy on the clock does his thing. This will go very quickly so I hope everyone can check in frequently for the next few days. I don't think we'll need more than a week to finish.

Seems a bit weird, what with having to sort through the playera alphabetically in order to put them in your queue. Did I miss something there?

I'm pretty sure you can have it sorted by their overall rankings.
You could also type in a players name and it'll bring it up for you.

IMPORTANT

Let me just reiterate, when we start this thing at couchmanagers it will go quickly. If you've got any scheduling concerns for the next few days let me know, as you need to plan on picking daily, likely more than once. There is a 12 hour limit on picks, but most often it will not be used as the auto queue allows you to queue up your top picks.

I only bring this up because it's 10:30 EST and clearly not everyone has checked in at all today. No problem because we haven't officially cranked it into gear yet, just want everyone prepared for when we do.

Note also that I (apparently, haven't tried it yet) can make picks for you, so if you know you are unavailable for a period of time longer than 12 hours and you know you will come up in that span, you could send me a list. Again, just let me know if there are any issues.

Sorry for the delay guys, I know everyone's chomping at the bit. I've not heard from johnsamo since Weds, I'll let you know if I hear something. We'll be off and running in some way tomorrow. Everyone down with getting a few rounds in this weekend?

That's just 8 hours, check in before and after, queue up as many picks as you're comfortable with, you won't hold us up much. We can make it work.
