Extending the 8 hour clock past Round 14
 
Should we keep an 8 hour clock for the next few rounds?

BenchBrawl 02-22-2012 10:31 PM

I vote no

Dreakmur 02-22-2012 10:31 PM

nope

TheDevilMadeMe 02-22-2012 10:35 PM

This poll closes at the end of Round 14 or if either side reaches an absolute majority of active GMs.

I say lets keep the 8 hour clock. This draft is going by very fast so no need to rush it. I feel like I'm learning a ton from this draft with all the different conversations going on. I dont have much time to post but I enjoy coming home from work and going through usually about 2-3 pages of good ATD talk

Leaf Lander 02-23-2012 01:50 AM

I am all for a 8 hour clock for any picks that put u on the clock between 3am and 6am

Last year took a ridiculous amount of time, but this is the fastest draft I've been a part of and it isn't particularly close. Traditionally, we have stayed on a 10 hour clock until round 8, this time we did only until round 6. Also, GMs have been a lot better about not using up their clocks than usual.

Actually, why do you vote? It's not like there is a difference for you since you aren't participating.

you just answered the question (that you posted in the wrong thread).

I don't have a vested interest, so my vote can probably be trusted more than someone else's who does have a vested interest.

BenchBrawl 02-23-2012 11:23 AM

what does trust has to do with such a vote? :laugh:

You can all trust me , I want the draft to keep moving quick and I hate waiting.There you go , you know my real intentions.

Umm, no, it doesn't make sence for me. This question is directed to people who have vested interest. This the case where subjective opinion was asked - or do you want to say as a person not taking part in the draft you know better about my timemanagement, and when I want this draft to end and lineup assassination to start?

It's not like we discussing Hainsworth vs Gardiner or something like this.

If 70s helps with vote counting for example, it affects him also. :)

BenchBrawl 02-23-2012 11:35 AM

yeah none-gms should'nt have a vote on that matter , it will only affect people who are participating therefore should only be decided by them.

let me backtrack here. I thought you were talking about voting on standings.

I voted on what I would prefer. I would expect those in charge of the draft will determine whether my vote counts. Last time there was an on-the-fly rule change, my vote did not count. I'm fine with that.

BenchBrawl 02-23-2012 01:19 PM

nobody is in charge unfortunately , so we're all in charge :laugh:

TheDevilMadeMe 02-23-2012 04:13 PM

Since seventieslord doesn't count, we are currently at 9-7 against extending the 8 hour clock past this round. If you don't vote in the poll, your vote doesn't count. If you don't care, don't vote.

I think this one should just go by the majority of those who care enough to vote - this isn't like adding an additional penalty with the other rule, and I assume a lot of GMs just don't care about this one.

Nalyd Psycho 02-23-2012 04:32 PM

I think everything is rolling smoothly as is.

tony d 02-24-2012 03:41 PM

It doesn't matter what way we go to me but I did vote no. It was planned on being 6 hours from the start, why stop that now?

Because we thought that the draft was perhaps going a little bit quickly, hence the need for a decision via ballot.
