CLICK FOR DRAFT UTILITY
This is all copied from the previous draft thread. Stop me if you've heard this one before.
Welcome to the 2029 Amateur Draft! The current file has the finalized draft class. Please look it over. I recommend taking a look at the draft class in-game, since it allows you to see a couple little things the reports do not. Utilize the in-game class for best drafting results!
We'll be drafting via statslab as usual, provided Statslab wants to work. The big link at the top of this thread will take you there. Your password, if you have never logged in, will be "baseball" - I suggest you change it after logging in.
Sometimes the utility doesn't like certain browsers. If I recall, Chrome is one of the browsers it does not like. If the draft utility is being weird for you, just try a different browser.
As for the draft...you all know what to do.
There's almost no chance we don't finish the draft yet again, but I figure I'll just emphasize the advantage of lists again. Everyone leaves lists, everyone is happy. New members, lists are great! They're great because even when someone is on the clock for a while because THEY didn't leave a list, that just gives everybody ELSE time to...leave a list. This way, when that slacker picks we get through the next 15 picks too. Everybody wins.
Now, there is really no rush with the draft. I understand that when people are on the clock sometimes they need to think about a pick, or sometimes there is a deal in the works that involves that pick...so don't feel pressure that when you're on the clock you HAVE to pick IMMEDIATELY. That's not true.
However, if you ever think to yourself, "gee it's not my pick yet, I wonder if I should leave a list" the answer is YES. Leave lists. Don't be that guy who says "oh I don't need to leave a list, I'm always around." Don't even be that guy who says that ironically in IRC because they think that joke has never been made. Leave a list.
And when you leave a list, just make check off that box that says auto-draft by list. Ok?
The timer for picks in the first round is 24 hours. The second round is 12 hours. The third round and beyond are 6 hours or something like that. This is pretty loosely enforced these days, and if you run a little over your time limit I'm not going to be autoing you immediately. However, two things:
If you force me to auto-pick for you, you'll be put on auto-draft for the remainder of the draft or until you log in and reset the setting yourself.
I can see who has logged into the utility and I can see when you were last there. If it's your pick and you haven't left a list nor logged in to the utility recently, I reserve the right to auto-pick for you without waiting, and you'll be put on auto-draft for the remainder of the draft or until you log in and reset the setting yourself.
If you leave lists, all this unpleasantness can be avoided.
