Sorry, should have consolidated some of this before:
I had a number of 'complaints' (but not really, just what a bummer it was) about the lack of trading during the draft. For some, it really took some of the fun out, and made the time in between picks drag even more.
So, I think trading during the draft will be allowed until it is shown to definitely be slowing down the draft. Basically, deals contingent upon a certain player being there should be avoided at all costs. If those are avoided, then there is plenty of time available to get trades completed. Once it is your turn to pick, that pick can no longer be traded. This is to prevent too much unnecessary delays when picks are up, and will ensure the draft keeps moving.
If trading during the draft proves to possibly be a hindrance, we'll have to scrap it again, but this league is supposed to fun afterall, so I figure let's give it a go!
so, to consolidate:
> draft pick time window is 12 hours
> draft NEVER stops, so be careful if your pick is coming up near nightfall
> trading is allowed during the draft (as of 7/19/10, subject to change)
> trading of draft picks can only be done BEFORE the pick is up
> Proxies can be sent to myself or B-MAN11
> missed draft picks are made by myself or B-MAN11 and are based strictly off yahoo ppr rankings (note- these prolly don't reflect 3 wr's or 14 teams...its just an overall ranking.)
