Blast you all and your trades! But I don't have another 2 hours to put in tonight.

If you haven't, send in your 2nd to 4th round lists to both of us.
Wait, we can send a list for round 3 and 4?

I did in last game but I was auto'ed...

Yes, I put up are OTC.... and it's in that state for 5-6 minutes.

Once that passes, I edit the post to show the pick, and then add an additional line showing the next team and that they are either A) OTC, B) selecting via list, or C) auto'd their choice and a new line is created.

It was stated numerous times that teams had to make sure that the list was correct in the first post.

Every team was up for 5 minutes.

In the future, I'd suggest having a different post for each upcoming pick, rather than repeatedly editing the same post. Yes, it'll end up being spam-full, but it would eliminate any lingering confusion.

It was a trade made during the draft.

I dunno, we run these drafts the same every game, so in that vein, **** happens.

But another part of me thinks there must be a way to minimize disappointment and make it easier for those who run it at the same time. We just haven't figured it out yet.

Well, firstly I'd say that all trades made during the draft should be sent to the person running the draft, rather than the commissioners. But, more important than that, every pick should get its own post.

Did you send a PM to TP to tell him about the trade?

Well, it's an easy enough fix. I just changed the Avs emblem to the Sens emblem, Rychel (who was autoed at 28) is a Sen rather than an Av.

This is why I don't hold onto draft picks in these games. Such a cluster****. Not the fault of you TP or anyone running it, there's just no way to do this without mass confusion and *****ing.

More often than not it's not too difficult to run, but each draft is different.

Some have 3 or 4 guys picking live, with a 10-20 lists, and then the obligatory MIA guys who just get auto'd. In these cases, easy enough.

It gets trickier when there are multiple trades within the round and we have 15+ guys picking live, and especially trades including other picks in the live rounds. I can't edit RR's posts, so I've just got to keep multiple windows open (during the 1st round I had 22 windows open including lists, draft orders, trade details, PM's indicating they'd be there live, etc) and check each one to see:

A) If the team is present
B) If they aren't, do they have a list
C) If there was a trade made with this team

Ultimately, it becomes a 2 man job for the live portion because of this. Usually I will do the selections and keep the order flowing, while RR will update the list based on trades and will then auto rounds 3 and 4. Good system we have going.

That said, we all have lives off the board, so sometimes things may take an extra day to flesh out. We'll be completing it tonight.
