    PPO FF - BE CAREFUL WHEN MAKING PICKS!!!!!

    Okay -

    The Tinglehoff division had a couple of issues tonight.
    Some people didn't show, but I was able to speed that along by setting them to auto-draft.

    However, SOME of the teams had issues with getting the players they wanted.
    The anecdotal evidence suggests that - on the Live Draft page - putting players into your "queue" and then selecting from there did not work.
    The suggestion was that using the ALL-ALL in the listing solved the problem.
    I missed most of that.

    I dunno - I wasn't drafting, so I didn't see the problems.
    But I would suggest that you all be VERY VERY VERY careful when choosing and drafting a player.
    I will NOT be able to correct mistakes, because things happen so quickly.
    If a mistake is made (system OR human) and I don't fix it before the next person drafts, then the mistake holds.

    =Z=

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Players in queue work only when selected that are not chosen already, and that you preset it as your priority.
    Just double check your orders.

    You need to revisit this sentence after you've had some sleep.

    Where would you set the above-mentioned priority?

    I had to set you to auto-draft once they noticed you weren't there.

    It didn't matter if you had guys in the queue or not.
    It was doing some seriously strange stuff to multiple teams.
    Refreshing worked for some and not others.
    Out of my first 7 picks 5 were completely random and not guys that were highlighted or at the top of any lists.
    It was strange.
    It happened to enough teams that it probably evened out and it was kind of exciting clicking pick and wondering who you got.

    Remember, I won't be there for the live draft.
    Feel free to set the autodraft function for me my friend.

    It would be super-cool if you'd actually set that up for yourself today.

    That draft (if I dare call it that) was lame, and by not being able to select the players we wanted takes most of the fun away.

    After screwing me over 5 rounds in a row (trying different things each time to make it work), I set mine to auto pick logged out.

    Most of us in our division had the same problem and I think that we should do it over, if the majority of us agreed to it of course.
