I have entered everything into the Anarchy League 4 website. People can kick around and look at the rules and research how players scored previously. I found someone for the last slot. I am setting the draft to start tomorrow at 9 am, but no draft clock for now given the lack of notice.

Here are the participants in the order they will be drafting . . .

1. Real Men Of Genius
2. kardplayer
3. Ping Pong
4. maggotbrain
5. Hipple, Long, Ware, & Peete
6. Stinkin Ref
7. solorca
8. Dork Matter
9. stuckinthemud
10. pigskinfanatic
11. Instinctive
12. Ian F
13. dabudman
14. Saint
15. eakfootball
16. Scancellare

Set pre-draft for pick #2. I'm assuming we won't get back to me for awhile.

Pm'd RMOG to let know on the clock fwiw. will try and check in tomorrow and see if I'm up, might just pm my choices to whoever picks behind me, as the 5 pick is one of the easier ones to predict...

Though Im used to drafting "must draft" x number of players at a position, this is the first time I have ever drafted in a 16 team league. Should be a leaning experience. Good luck to you all. Quick question. Anybody find a draft board on the league site, or at least a draft list where you can tell who drafted who and in what order? The best i can do is find teams and see what player is on each team.... but not in which order they were drafted.

click on the "customize this page" button at the top of the screen...it will allow you to add or subtract things from your home page.....on the left hand side find the one that talks about "draft report" or something like that....click on it and then hit the button in the middle that allows you to "add" it to the main page.....the stuff on the right is the stuff that is currently on your home page, you can cliclk on it and remove it from your home page if you want.....that page allows you to make the home page look however you want.....you can also move things up and down to position them on your home page....

thats the thing....no matter what, he needed to put in 5 selections to be 100% covered....he obviously didn't......predrafting loses a great deal of it's effectiveness if you don't put in enough picks to cover through your draft pick......it's drafting 101 type stuff....if you kind of indicate you think you are good for a day or so and you may not check back in for awhile, at least make sure you have enough picks entered to cover your pick....

As Stinkin Ref said if you didn't predraft more players than picks left before yours then it didn't work cos it wasn't used right :wall: Oh well - there usually are a few bumps in the road early on in leagues

:lmao: I absolutely did put in 5 draft picks. and 3 of them were still there. No idea why it didn't work. Might have something to do with the glitch that didn't allow RMOG to draft until 8 this am :shrug:. I've no preset another 16 picks as I a gonna be in trial all day tomorrow too. Hopefully it works better. I'll also pm my cell # to the guy in front of me and behind me, so that they can text e when I'm up (and I suggest others do the same) as we have a lot of teams and rounds to go!

fwiw I preset 32 picks, that should at least clear me for the next two rounds. After that I should be back to normal as my trial should end tomorrow and at the longest Thursday.

I don't think you're properly setting the predraft list. In the Draft Report, it doesn't list you as having a "Pre-Draft selection Made."

Maybe? This is my first MFL draft in quite a few years. Back when I did last it was merely a brown background with a very basic interface. It also was at 3:30 am last night before I went to bed (was up late prepping for an officer CX). It's even entirely possible that I didn't click save and continue? Like I said it was really late :bag:

I see that it says "you can also go to round 2 (or 3, 4, 5...)" and set that list. since I preset a large # i would imagine that would apply to say round three when it rolls around, no? Or do I need to do each round separately (would seem dumb since how do i know who will even be avail in round 3). If anyone knows feel free to chime in.

I may/will make a lot of stupid mistakes in this life/draft. Not knowing that at pick 5 I would need to list 5 players is NOT one of them....

Or do I need to do each round separately (would seem dumb since how do i know who will even be avail in round 3). If anyone knows feel free to chime in.

Set all your round 2 picks. Save and COntinue to round 3. On the round 3 page, you can hit "import from 2nd round" and it will bring in your entire round 2 preset. You can then hit save and continue just like before. Repeat this process. On another note, I'm either going to destroy you all or finish last. I either completely understand how best to draft or have absolutely no idea. I see no in between. Probably 75/25 for fail/dominate. We'll see how it goes!

It's like meeting a beautiful, intelligent, hilarious woman who's not up for oral sex. You've got two choices- give up and leave her, or stay with her and try like hell to talk her into coming to her senses. I've chosen the latter.

On another note, I'm either going to destroy you all or finish last. I either completely understand how best to draft or have absolutely no idea. I see no in between. Probably 75/25 for fail/dominate. We'll see how it goes!

I don't think anybody completely understands how to draft in this format! :confused: Just don't snipe my picks, that's all I ask

I see that it says "you can also go to round 2 (or 3, 4, 5...)" and set that list. since I preset a large # i would imagine that would apply to say round three when it rolls around, no? Or do I need to do each round separately (would seem dumb since how do i know who will even be avail in round 3). If anyone knows feel free to chime in.

apparently you need to do each round seperate. prolly better or I'd have Tavaris jackson as my qb

Set all your round 2 picks. Save and COntinue to round 3. On the round 3 page, you can hit "import from 2nd round" and it will bring in your entire round 2 preset. You can then hit save and continue just like before. Repeat this process. On another note, I'm either going to destroy you all or finish last.

:goodposting: However the problem with setting too many rounds in a row can be seen n Solaraca's team, as after 3 rounds and he has gone TE (picked on his own), ATL QB/NYG QB (both made via lists), and you can't iagine he really wanted to do that. Note. my jury trial is over, so I'll be online or on a golf course for the next 3-4 days and won't be so absentee...

I'll take the under if we start counting now, but if we count rounds 1-3 I might have to go with the over :bag:

I did preset 32 picks (assuming that would cover me through rounds 2-3) and publically ask if I did it right. If someone had chimed in a la Instinctives 11:35 post prior to 8 am I would have done that too. But then I'd be debating the merits of colt mccoy vs hassleback

Another option is that people can PM me a list of players if they are having issues setting up a predraft list.

Not necessary. Just takes a little getting used to for those unfamiliar with MFL software... Are trades allowed in this league? If not Solorca is gonna be pissed...

No trades, waiver wire pick ups, or roster moves of any kind. Once you take someone, you are stuck with them for better or for worse.

Unless someone is really abusing the timer time and time again, I prefer not to turn the timer on. If things are moving along without a timer, there shouldn't be a need for a timer. The rationale for this is there have been times when someone missed their pick and either did not get a player at all or got a computer generated pick of someone already out for the season. Either way, that sucks. The next problem then was that sometimes a bunch of teams AFTER that medded up pick had predrafted. So when the owner that missed his pick wanted to swap for someone else, it potentially made for a mess, especially if I wasn't right on the computer at the time that owner tried to get a hold of me and more picks were made and the player he wanted then got taken. So TEAM A wanted PLAYER X at 3:00 and emailed much such. But I wasn't on the computer until 5:00 and PLAYER X was picked by TEAM B at 4:45. Given that people predrafted on top of that and I had no way of knowing who they wanted, it made resetting the draft next to impossible and a lot of people went ballistic, especially if someone predrafted and then THEY missed a pick because their predraft pick got erased. So that's the story on the timer being on, and if we can avoid turning it on all the better.

Fair enough I see the challenges Hopefully all of our draft pick averages stay (or head) south of the 4 hour average then. No names mentioned :D

You might take a look at League 5 before you complain about a draft going too slow. 10 picks in 50+ hours.
