Setting Draft Date and Time

Postby jdouble777 » Fri Mar 04, 2011 2:49 pm

Having entertained the idea of deviating from the said date and time for the draft, conflict after conflict has arose and now in an effort to please everyone I face the risk of losing everyone. I feel one option I have yet to explore is implementing a slow draft, but I do not know that EPSN allows that option. Anyone have any ideas that would resolve this issue without turning away owners? I suppose the only "right" thing to do would be to stick to the said draft date and time then find replacements for those that cannot make it but I would rather not go that option and lose owners if I did not have to.

I run a 20 team league this year, so you can imagine the problem of getting 20 guys on the same page. What I did is pick a week. As example I sent an email saying we would have the online draft from Sunday March 20 to Sunday March 27. I had everyone send me an email telling the times THEY COULD NOT HAVE IT during that week. I then studied the emails and Saturday March 26 at 8 PM was good for all. I sent an email out an asked every one to confirm that March 26 8 PM was good for all. It worked. You should try that before a slow draft. I hate those.

Good luck,
