FF2012: Official GWJFFL 2012 signup and discussion thread

Sorry about that. I updated mine. I can do any night at 8 accept for Friday and Sat.

For the keeper draft, how much money do we have to keep/spend during the draft? Is it 200?

(Working on setting my keepers)

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.

You are evil sir, lol. Yeah, we upgraded our entire office to Win7 and Office'10, so it's been a busy two weeks at work, especially when half the office is in the "I'm over 40 and I hate change and know nothing about technology". I've been working a lot of 7:30am-8pm shifts. We're down to single digits now, and I decided to pop onto GWJ, and noticed I'm holding things up. What's worse is my email address changed, so I still have to wait for an invite.

Grump, my email is in your inbox. I will try to sign up when you send it to get things rolling!

I found the password to my AOL account, so I was able to sign up. GOLD IS FILLED!!!!!

*EDIT*
Updated the Whenisgood page with my availability. No longer waiting on me

G and K are both tied at 10. Platinum has 9, and Silver and Dynasty have 7 and 5, respectively.

I just got back in town, I signed up Grump. +1 to Platinum and Dynasty.

Platinum jumps into the lead with 11!

Edit: Once again, I want to remind everyone that I extended the available hours so if you haven't already, please review your entries. Thanks.

Thanks for opening up Sunday - my wife is out of town over that weekend and it would be far, far easier for me to do either 8/25 or 8/26.

Updated my times due to addition of 8/26 and the labor day weekend.

If you didn't save the link, is there a good way to edit your times?

Who must I shame into signing up for platinum?

If you actually registered, you can find your links in "Your Account." I've PM'd you your links. Another option (for anyone else with the same dilemma) would be to post again and make clear in the comment which one is the new, improved, updated, correct entry.

Cybardian, but you didn't hear it from me.

Surprise.

This morning's counts:

2012 GWJFFL-Silver Draft 10 so far
2012 GWJFFL-Dynasty Draft 8 so far
2012 GWJFFL-Gold Draft 10 so far
2012 GWJFFL-Platinum Draft 11 so far
2012 GWJFFL-Keeper Draft 10 so far

9/4 is the leader in half the leagues. Just so y'all know, I can't do all the drafts in one night.

I make a motion on behalf of the good people of the platinum league that if Cybardian does not enter his draft dates by the end of today (00:00 CST) we do not ask for his input!

That's happened before... though I'll probably give him through the weekend since Platinum's leading candidates are currently 9/2 and 9/4.

GWJFFLK folks, I can't remember how we did it last year but bringing the rosters 100% up-to-date over on ESPN is painful. (It's like they expect us to play on their site all season or something. ) PM me your keepers and I'll make sure they're there for you to flag. The rest will just automatically fall off when the draft starts. In other news, I'm pretty sure the draft budget is $200, right?

Oy! Really?

--------

Silver has now caught up to Gold and Keeper at 10. Platinum continues to lead at 11, and Dynasty is bringing up the rear at 8. Considering that the first possible day is Sunday, as unlikely as it is to host any drafts based on current voting, I'll be closing the polls on Saturday night and posting dates/times some time on Sunday.

Come on Gold! Get it together.

Are we going to get a list of everyone's keepers before the draft?

Correct me if I'm wrong but, I don't think we did that last year.

Fair point.

Counter point. (Somebody remind me to update rosters earlier in the summer next year.)

I'll get the rosters updated on ESPN tomorrow. I'll also post draft times. About 3 hours ago, Platinum became the first, and so far only, group to achieve full participation in the draft date polling. It is not officially closed... but I'll leave it unofficially open until such time that I start figuring out the scheduling.

Draft dates (all times Central)

By League:
Silver - 8/28 (8:30)
Gold - 9/4 (8:30)
Platinum - 9/2 (8:00)
Keeper - 8/29 (9:00)
Dynasty - 9/1 (8:00)

By Date:
8/28 - Silver (8:30)
8/29 - Keeper (9:00)
9/1 - Dynasty (8:00)
9/2 - Platinum (8:00)
9/4 - Gold (8:30)

Gonna be some late nights.

Is the draft order that shows up now in Gold the actual order or has it not been randomized yet?

Oh jeez. My Reddit draft is the exact same day/time as the Dynasty draft.

I thought 9/2 @ 10:00pm EST was good for the Dynasty draft?

I'm afraid if the draft stays 9/1 @ 9:00pm EST I'll have to drop from the league. I don't do autopicking especially for a Dynasty draft.

Draft order is not set. That's what I'm doing next (in between family obligations).

Where did that date come from?

If the evening of 9/1 was not good for you, why did you indicated it was on whenisgood.net?

I cant start a draft at 10pm EST on a Sunday night. I am amazed i selected that time as ok. No biggie though, I will just make sure my auto draft is the way i want.

Can't you just have multiple windows up for both drafts? If you are the type to do prep work your actual draft selection should happen pretty quick!

Whoa first pick. Now I actually have to do some research. I can't use "so and so took my guy" as an excuse for screwing up.
