My main issue is with having to wait on the same people over and over. Especially when they're actively posting elsewhere in the forums yet not making their picks in the game forum, which happens quite a bit.



at the rate the draft is progressing we might be finished by UFC 157

A point penalty would only effect those that are taking too long without any adverse effects on those of us that are paying attention.

My issue with the point penalty is that people in different time zones can get screwed
I would just rather people pm me several picks ranked in order of importance in advance so we could avoid an issue altogether

I'm for keeping the draft how it is, I don't like to see the rules change during a game!



For the most part, I agree. My main issue is with having to wait on the same people over and over. Especially when they're actively posting elsewhere in the forums yet not making their picks in the game forum, which happens quite a bit.

yeah, those assholes. I know I'm one of those said people, I apologize to you personally for making you wait. I haven't been paying close enough attention. I'm gonna start subscribing to hopefully combat that

damn it Sparky!

I too am opposed to changing the time limits. I currently work 11h shifts, plus 40-45 min commute each way 3x a week, so thats almost 13h away. I could miss both my picks in that time if I happen to be working that day (where I get no internet access). And as Prophecy said, a normal sleep period can also screw you. Keep it as is

I agree, too, gents. I'm on 16 hour shifts Friday, Saturday and Sundays, and tens the rest of the week. I typically come home and check the site, but once in a while, I crap out when I get home. I'll try to be more on top of it.

Okay, bad idea, how about once you have made your selection, you then PM the next player in line to let them know it is there turn to pick, if they are on the site, then they have no excuse. Actually I am sure someone came up with that idea earlier in the thread
