  • Draft Section Discussion

    All discussion pertaining to the draft section goes here. New draft proposals, start date for annual drafts, volunteers to run said drafts ect.

    Currently to start a thread in this section you need to have moderator approval, once a draft begins this sanction will be removed, so the draft can be member run as usual. Now that there's an entire sub-section dedicated to drafts, the need for draft thread stickies shouldn't be such an issue.

    Have fun!

    I like the idea of a specific section for drafts. Also, just to let everyone know, I will be starting up the Artist Draft again in February.

          ...and I the literary draft, in April. It was successful, so I'll run it again.

          Forward, not permanent, sweet, not lasting.

              15 people finished drafting in a really short time... then no one voted because she decided to use a fucking stupid new voting system.

              Drags, what happens if multiple drafts are going on at once?

                  There won't be. Probably be a good idea to work out a set schedule sooner rather than later, allotting for draft lags. So far there appears to be only four drafts slotted, so there shouldn't be a problem working them all in.

                  The horror draft of course has priority, then all genre, artist ect. Those who've run them in the past have first dibs on running them again this year, so Tool Shed will be the man to speak to first regarding the horror/all genre.

                  If later down the line there are more drafts than there's time for within the year, the members can take a vote on which to pursue next (keeping in mind the Horror and All Genre are annual staples).

                  Hopefully everyone will feel this is fair, if not I suppose suggestions are always.... somewhat... welcomed. But not really.

                  I'll leave this for someone else to explain, but feel this would be a good time to recommend putting together a draft outline page. Essentially outlining what drafts are, procedure ect. Might need some volunteers on this one, Shed, Bungle?

                    Sounds perfectly fair to me.

                        It delivered everything it intended to. The amount of players wanted, literature drafted, actual participation and it never fell apart. Aside from that, the idea wasn't lame like the wrestler's draft (), and was actually supported.

                        Pssh. I was actually appeasing various members who wanted other methods incorporated; thank you very much.

                        I'll probably just use the 'traditional' method this time around.

                          Did anyone find the Database useful? If so, I have no issues creating one per draft, if I am in them or not.

                            The database was particularly useful. The first few rounds I was on top of the situation, but the last few rounds I found myself double-checking the draft board to see what had and had not been chosen. The alphabetical database made the process much simpler.

                            I said so at the time, but great job Morbid.
