    Ok, another post. Looking at some previous picks, it seems apparent that the stars at the top don't mean a whole lot? Am I assuming right (always dangerous) that the stars are fluid?

    If that is the case, then I'd be fascinated to know what barometers people use in the draft to analyze players.

    Stars are useless.

    Trust me... pretty much every one of your draftees will die.

    CHI selection manually fired after their time elapsed. They had a player in their list, but it was set to "off."

    Yeah...also I forgot to adjust the forum clock, so it was actually an hour over their time. Clock has been updated.

    That's ok, the draft may or may not have to be completely reset anyway.

    One way or another the draft is going to be paused for a bit. If I can correct the issue with the retired players while keeping the current draft pool intact I will do that and we will resume where the draft left off. If that's not possible and I need to regenerate the draft pool then we will start over at 1.1.

    Ok, I've re-enabled the draft box (not that the draft util itself was ever really inaccessible...). So, fire when ready.

    (I'm not going to pay any attention to the clock until at least tomorrow. That's not to say you should take extra time if you are around, however.)

    Giving Cubs until 3PM. After that the clock should be considered ON.

    This is probably par for the course for the older GM/owners here, but thank you for being such a considerate and active steward for the league.

    Thanks John. I'm probably a little too lenient (or, wishy-washy) for most - usually because I do a poor job of announcing things or setting things up in time (in this case, I never did explicitly state that the clock was back on). Also tough to hold owners to a timeframe when, oh, one of your own screw-ups cost the league an entire week.

    eta: we never had these issues under Shaw!

    My bad - I read that the draft clock was starting again, but brain locked. If we don't have someone loaded at any point, OTTO us.

    I'm on the road right now, and don't want to keep anyone waiting. I don't have any player listed in a contingency list, sorry about that. I'm fine with being otto'd.

    Hmm. I think the BPA might actually be working?
