BlackSheep accepted the spot this morning. I suspect he'll sign up tonight.

Hmm, I don't see a way to get back in and edit my submission so I guess just count the days I put available as also being available in the hour beforehand now.

When you submitted your input, it should have given you a link where you can edit your response. Don't worry about it, though, since I've edited your input for you.

I'm signed up for Silver -- sorry for the day delay -- I don't have any access to a computer or phone during the day most of the time. Is there a league cost or should I peruse through this thread>?

I joined the Dynasty a few days ago (Hammock District). Into Gold as well

No league cost for Silver, Blacksheep.

Cool, thanks for the info. I read about it too, heading back into the forums a bit.

Holy sh*t. I got first pick in silver randomly. Now I REALLY have to do some thinking.

Pfft. Try picking 5th or 6th.

QFT. Middle is the worst.

Doh, didn't realize the draft order would change! I went from third to 8th. What a conundrum!

Sorry, Grump, I was still recovering from GenCon, finally got back to GWJ and football today. I'm signed up!

It looks like everyone is signed up except for Kush15 in Gold. Everyone should PM him to get it in gear. I'll send out whenisgood links for Dynasty and Silver later today.

Attention GWJFFLP owners, with 8/12 responses so far, there is already no date/time that is good for everyone. Please evaluate your entries to make sure you've made as much reasonable accommodation as possible.

GWJFFLK has had 7 responses so far and the options are already down to 2 nights of the 9 listed so I encourage you to make the same review as Platinum as well.

Finally, I've posted WhenIsGood links on the draft boards for Dynasty, Gold (so much for waiting for Kush), and Silver. You should have all gotten an email notification as well but if not, log in to Fleaflicker and find the post on the message board. (Note: this is also true for K and P folks if you haven't "voted" yet.)

I'm in the Silver and Dynasty leagues.

Next week is tough for me as I will be away on business from Monday Aug 27 through Friday Aug 31.

Sunday, Aug 26, 9pm - 11pm is good for me. (this wasn't an option on whenisgood).

Sunday, Sept 2, after 9pm is also good for me.

FYI (for all), the reason it wasn't an option is because I try to make sure our drafts start after the 3rd week of preseason is over and there are two games on Sunday. If you guys want me to add it as an option, though, I'm happy to do so.

It looks like you've indicated that this is the only time of all the options that is good for you. If that's the case, I recommend you get your autodraft rankings set up.

4 responses in and Silver already has no times that are good for all. As a matter of fact, you guys were so specific that at least two people are "unavailable" for every option.

Finally, please use your forum handles, folks. I really don't know (almost) any of you by your real name.

We have two people who literally said "I can't do any evening in the next 10 days?"

I can widen out into the weekdays of next week if it helps, but I marked outa pretty broad swath of evenings already.

I work monday and wednesday evenings from 9-12 (EST), so that is right out for me. I can expand to some times on the weekends as well, but it might be tricky as my wife was thinking of planning something for the long weekend.

No, it was more like 4 people responded and each one had a different set of evenings that worked for them... and these sets were so specific that for every option, at least two people had not marked it. To simplify, think of it this way: 2 folks said I can only do Monday, Wednesday, or Friday and 2 others said that only Tuesday and Thursday would work.

I'm not going to tell anyone what to do or not do. Once I've got 12 responses for a particular league, I'll find the time that works for the most people. Everyone else, set up your auto-draft rankings. It's as simple as that.

Oh, and if you literally only mark 3 squares of the 180, I'm going to question if you're being as flexible as possible. The results screen even says, "No match. Consider excluding the least flexible respondents by clicking on the names towards the end of the list." You sir, are at the end of the list.

I went back and updated my response to include monday evening, the 3rd, but I need at least a week's warning for that one so I can get the time off.

In case y'all didn't know, the first group to get to 12 gets first dibs on their date/time. What this means is that, for example, if 2 leagues have both made selections in such a way that the optimal night for both is the same, the tiebreaker goes to whoever got all their entries in first.

The counts as of now...
GWJFFLP 2012 Draft 8 so far
GWJFFLK 2012 Draft 8 so far
2012 GWJFFL-Silver Draft 6 so far
GWJFFLG 2012 Draft 4 so far
2012 GWJFFL-Dynasty Draft 2 so far

Well gold is going to be last if we still only have 11 managers.

You never know. I both emailed and PM'd Kush15 a couple hours ago. Dynasty is sure taking its time and there's no reason to think it's impossible that he could signup and register his preference in the next 5 minutes. Who's to say? Gold only has 5 responses so far so it's not like we're waiting (only) on him.

I just updated to be enormously flexible, and will have to make it up to my wife if it ends up being on vacation.

Ok, I added 8/26 as an option, and also included daylight hours on the weekends. If that is relevant to your availability, please update your response appropriately.

I was pretty flexible but I don't think the east coast guys should have to stay up till 2am on a weeknight
