i think 24 is alittle too much...depending on when we start drafting, if every round took 24 hours, it would take about a month. 12 hours should be more than enough, especially with the option of leaving a short list with another person.

Agreed, 12 hrs is a good time. And here is a suggestion so it is easier to pm people: make a link on each persons name (in each round where it says order) so then we can just click on it and then you are right there. The reason I say this because I know of people who dont pm for whatever reason, and this makes it much easier.

For the first couple of rounds (say the first two) I would like to keep it at 24 hrs between picks. After that, 12 hours between picks would make the draft more feasible to complete. We would have to institute a rule though so that if someone makes a pick at 6 p.m., the next owner does not have to draft before 6 in the morning (say 12-8 in the morning, the clock momentarily is frozen).

well this doesnt make much sense, because everyone is excited for the first few rounds, and there's no way 24 hours will be needed. 24 hrs will probably be needed when its the 19th round and many people dont care about their teams (i.e. not check the board as often). i think checking in after 6pm until you go to bed is more than enough time. if you're committing to a fantasy baseball draft, i think thats more than fair...not to mention i dont think anyone is going to be waiting at the computer at 6am ready to pick in front of the guy.

Alright, 12 hours to start the draft and 24 hours in the last round or last couple of rounds.
