    Starting next round, should we give each member 8 hours to make a pick?

    we have different time zones, and some people have shit to do. 8 hours doesn't seem fair

    But then again, we want to get this draft done and it isn't fair for people who are waiting to pick their players.

    that's true, maybe we can try to arrange a time for all of us to be on here and go to town for an hour or so, and then plan anohter one of those and we'll be done in no time

    That's a good idea. I'm not keen on the idea of a live draft as I make my mind up about the player when it's my turn to pick, haha.

    same here, i think if we just plan a time for everyone to be on for only an hour or so, we'll be done with this pretty soon.

    It will be hard for me this week until I get back home. Somebody come up with a time and I'll see what I can do.

    i could probably squeeze it in about anytime, i know we have some time zone issues, but i should be able ot be pretty flexible about this

    We have to just stick to this I think as Agoo can't do any form of live draft apparently and it is more important that we start later with everyone than earlier without.

    of course, but if agoo and everyone else can get on here at x time, we will be able to pump out a bunch of picks and speed up the process.

    Time limits are pretty standard in fantasy drafts. Otherwise they take months to complete.

    Consider that the first pick was made on the 7th. It's now the 11th. We're averaging 3 picks per day, which is about 8 hours per pick. Not a big change.

    At least the first 4 rounds leave it 24 hours time limit, after that change it to 8. That's my opinion.
