I think a 24 hour time limit. Most people will have their picks within the hour, but we don't want to screw anyone that actually has a job, life, wife, etc...

I doubt we'd even need that much time, but it's a thought. If everyone pays well enough in advance we can get this squared away. I'll PM everyone that hasn't paid tomorrow (again).

EElindy, payment received.

Just noticed. Case #2 only has 4 payments to go. Pretty close!

I agree that most people will be on here and be able to pick quickly but maybe if we can get this paid up fast it will give time to notify everyone on a day/time when it will start thus giving the most people an opportunity to try and be on when it starts but we should have plenty of time to be flexible for those like me, that aren't on here multiple times every day. We should also then have some time for trading before the break.

I think we should first have a dead-line for payments posted and pm'd to those left to pay.That way if someone has to back out we can get those slots filled.Since I'm on the back-up list and in both cases it would be nice to know if I need to save some paypal for back-up slots.

As long as people pm the next in line after they pick it should go pretty quick.Maybe even pm next 2 in line to give both a heads-up.But if people know that they are not going to be on a computer for a day or 2 they need to send the host a list of teams to choose from when it gets to them.That will also help things along.

Some thoughts from a slow day...
Reading over some of the other Draft style Group Breaks, I want us all to be in agreement on a few things:

1. As soon as a case is entirely paid off, I will try to do the randomization on THAT CASE and let the participants start the selection process. I know this should not be as hard as a baseball draft, but I don't want it to be painfully slow. If this starts to drag, let's plan on a no bull$*** Draft selection kick-off for Monday, June 7th 6:30PM EST. If it looks like things are too confusing I'll even create different threads to accomodate Case 1 and Case 2. I recommend the #1 Draft Pick person PMing the next 2 in line, and so on and so forth.

2. Will anyone be up that way to actually see the Draft LIVE? We have a lot of members from all over the place, I bet there might be some up there?

If you guys think of anything else, please post your thoughts.
Ok... found 2 old posts. 3 June, 8pm EST is the deadline for payments. That gives me 4 days to fill any empty slots. For now, unless a case gets paid off beforehand, the Draft will kick off on 7 June, 6:30pm EST. NOTE: There will NOT be multiple threads for the Draft. If case 2 gets paid off before case 1, then case 2 will start and FINISH their selections BEFORE I open the case 1 draft. This will alleviate any potential miscommunication problems between cases. Deal?

This can change and will change as the situation permits. I am hoping we do this sooner than later. PMs going out tomorrow for non-payments.

Just so everyone knows, WILSONSINGLES is paying by Money Order. His slots are marked PAYMENT PENDING, will upgrade to PAID once the funds are deposited. That is all, good morning.

Rudy, you might as well add me to the waiting list for slots if more people drop out. I realize that there are already a couple of people on there and I hope no one else drops out, but if it does happen, I'll take at least two more if it ever gets to that point.

Good morning. Another PM has been sent to remind members about payment. We're almost there....

... if anyone is around this afternoon, I might try to fire up the webcam and figure out how/where to position it to do a test run on a LIVE PRACTICE randomization. Usually I just do it (random.org) and post the results. But if I can manage to do it on ustream I will. I'll bump the thread around 4pm EST and try it, thanks.
