Not as many as you were, but I did get quite a few.
People just have to be understanding. If you're going to make a trade in the middle of the night and while you're on the clock, someone most likely isn't going to be able to sign on in time to approve the trade. That's just the way it is. People are going to have to be more understanding than they were last time around.
My thought process on this is there are going to be people who complain either way. It's just going to happen. If there are small limits, people will complain. If there are no limits, people will complain. If there is no trading, people will complain. It's just the way it is. And I think there are very few people who don't want trades. So I think the answer is just unlimited trading, with people knowing that if you trade right before your selection is up, the deal might not be passed through for like 6 hours (or if it's an unfair deal, then like 12 hours). Because it's too hard to restrict people trading within proximity to their selection (and not fair, sometimes you need to move up to get into a run on players), there is just no point in any restrictions. We'll continue to have the same problems, and people that make the problematic deals just need to be more understanding, and the people around them need to deal with the fact that hey, maybe the draft will be held up an extra six hours which in the grand scheme of things really isn't that big a period of time (.25 of a day when we invest, what 150 days into this thing?)
