With Matt and Red, that makes 11. I still have yet to hear from jusman1, Aqua, and Oopah. If anyone has an email or additional means of contacting them, please let me know.
We started the draft last year on the 18th of Feb. That gives us two weeks from today to finalize the league members, the new keeper rules, and declare keepers. That should be no problem, IMO. I'll be setting up two polls today - one as to the new escalating keeper structure, and the other to how to handle multiple first rounders. We'll go with whatever options get the most votes.

I'll see if I can rectify it, in the meantime I'll keep an eye on the forum in general.
Through my sleuthing, I was able to find the emails of jusman1, Aqua, and Oopah. If the emails I personally sent were not enough, the ones automatically sent when I renewed the league should be. Although not hearing from Oopah and Aqua is not all that surprising, hearing nothing from jusman1 really is. Regardless, I made a post in the Classifieds and we have 1 for sure replacement. I told those three they had until Monday, so we'll hold off on introducing people until then. Again, if you know someone that may want to take over a team, tell them to contact me.
We only have 8 of 11 people who have voted in the polls. Although the format question is all but decided, we need the rest of the turnout to decide the 1st Rounders question. If you haven't voted, please do so soon.
Jusman1: is for sure out. He wanted to let everyone know that he enjoyed his time in the league. Maybe we'll have him back at a later time. Oopah: Maybe in? Looks like he accepted his invite and joined the league in Yahoo!. I sent him an email through the league page to get more info on his intentions. Aqua: Still nothing. I'm assuming he's out.
Regarding replacements: We're likely all set. Have 2 guys for sure and possibly a 3rd. Assuming the above three guys are the only questions, and everyone else sticks by their commitment, we should be full up at 14.
Timeline: Keeper date still TBD, but I want at least a couple days between their due date and the draft. Seems like there is always someone late to the party. Preliminary draft date is still 2/18, but if everything falls into place sooner, we can start a few days early.
