Ok. Signed up. Do we have a date for the autodraft yet?

Yes, I have many stupid questions being that I've never done an auto draft on yahoo. So my first question is, "Now what?"

Do we start ranking players in the order we'd like them and then send you the list? Or is there an auto draft list somewhere on yahoo that we go to in order to rank?

Never mind. This is what happens when I get excited. I don't check for confirmation emails with instructions from yahoo.

If I remember correctly, Yahoo makes the draft order in the order people sign up. There should be an option to randomize it after everyone has joined though.

Greg, will we wait until later in August to do the draft? Just curious if we'll have a chance to watch some pre-season stuff first.

I'm open to whatever you guys want to do. Draft can begin as soon as everyone is ready, but must be conducted by Friday, Oct 18, 2013. I don't want to wait until Oct., but what does everyone think?

I would prefer to wait until at least the end of the second pre-season game. The draft should be essentially instantaneous on the actual day, shouldn't it?

I'll keep with the greatness. It may have a positive effect. That and me not choosing the team.
I joined, but still waiting on confirmation mail. Will give it another try this afternoon

Even if it takes three days that's still plenty of time before the 5th, even if we were to wait until the second or third week of pre-season. I vote for waiting if everyone else agrees.

I haven't had much of a chance to keep up with everything that's happened in the off season and I'm kinda flying blind right now. I don't even know half the trades and acquisitions that have gone on. I'm hoping pre season will help me get back in the loop somewhat.

I do the set up for our family league and it's autodraft. once you say the league is ready to draft Yahoo will do the rest within 72 hours. So you just need to set a deadline for everybody to be signed up and get their list ready then release the league at that time. I usually go with a week before the first game of the season. that gives Yahoo the 72 hours and the league a few days to set their starters or make changes as they see fit.

The final pre-season games are August 29th, there's really no need to get it done before that. August 31st would be fine by me, that gives a couple of days to get players out of your rankings that happen to get hurt that week.

Yeah, you did. You should be able to resign one of them. Who hasn't signed up yet?

Okay. New computer is up and running. I am figuring out windows 8. I will look at the players over the next ten days and create my list.

Good luck with that. Everybody I know who has tried Windows 8 is unanimous in their sheer hatred of it. The university has announced that we are not and will not support it in our IT services. We did the same thing with Vista and ME.

And can I just express my gratitude for the random draft order that Race came up with? (the "special brownies" are in the mail )

It is a big change, I will grant you that. It seems to be completely different than the previous versions of windows, and has different names for things.

But it has addressed some of the weirdness that was windows. To turn it off for instance, you just push the power button, and it turns off. Not like before where you had to click start, to stop.

Menu's pull in from corners, and the desk top is changed. I will do what I do with every new version of windows I run up against. Go buy the most complete version of ______ Windows for Dummies, read the introduction chapters, and then reference it whenever I have to do something for the first time, or that only needs to be done once in a blue moon.

Right now I need to figure out how to get it to recognize my phone as a device so I can download all my pictures off of it.
