I'm Huskies and should be able to make the draft, but don't really care if I have to autodraft
If we decide to use an auction draft, I don't believe autodraft is an option.

You can, actually... The autodraft is not bad in fact, more intelligent than the snakedraft bot...

By my count, we're missing Maldonado, Herman, and bajanguy008. I've sent them all private messages. We also had BookTheGoat join, so we'll need one more for 14 teams or for one of them to drop out to make it 12.

I'll put out the league changes vote once everyone has checked in or we have a replacement arranged.

Do we have a full league now? Can we decide on the draft time soon... for those of us playing multiple leagues, a lot of drafts are happening next weekend...

Also are we able to set the draft order some time before the draft? Not a big deal, but would be handy if possible.

The draft time is already set. I've dropped Herman from the league because we have an odd number of teams and he's told us that he's only willing to stay if necessary.

I don't have a problem with that. Let's wait to see if anyone does before I change it.

The earlier time is better for me. I’d likely be on auto draft a couple of hours later but will be ok with that if it works better for most.

I’d have to autodraft at 5, but can do 7.

It's incredibly difficult to get a time that works perfectly for everyone with 12 teams across different time zones, different countries even. The earlier time works for me, rather than the later time, but I'm more than happy to work with whatever is best for most people.

It's been about 36 hours since I sent out the survey. We've had 8 of 12 people respond but I think it's safe to say that we'll be doing a snake draft this year. It's looking likely that we won't have a keeper league, either.

However it seems that doing something with the turnovers category will be implemented. If that holds, these are the options I'll likely make available. Let me know if there's something you want to recommend.

Assist/Turnover ratio
Double-doubles
Split rebounding into two categories (offensive and defensive)
No replacement category (8 categories total)

Try to keep in mind that I think it's best to avoid "double-dipping" with categories. Double-doubles would be as far as I'm willing to go in that regard.

It would be good to get everything squared away at least a couple of days before the draft. It looks like at least a few teams may need to auto draft, so the more time we give those teams to get their order set, the fairer that would be (any changes to categories we’re using could have a big impact on rankings)
