    I'll go along with 8. It's not like 12 hours was helping us Silly Vikings anyway.

    12 hours to 8 hours won't make a bit of difference if you suspend time for 8-10 hours at night. May as well not do it.

    Perhaps what we need is a more radical solution to move things along in the lower rounds. Howzabout this: We all provide Mastiff with a list of players, or give him permission to draft "best remaining". When it's your turn on the draft, you have a smaller number of hours (maybe 1-2) to make your own pick, before Mastiff makes it for you based on the list you have provided. I would suspend the draft overnight and on weekends.

    Failing that, can we all maybe soundoff and set aside one or two days where we can all be on-line at roughly the same time to get this done?

    At the very minimum, I think we should all provide Mastiff with a short list of picks - enough to get through the next round.

    As fun as that sounds... if we go to a flat 8 hours, that's three picks a day for 5 days x 5 weeks. That's 75 picks... or 4 1/2 rounds. If it goes like it has so far today, we won't get done.

    Get a PM buddy to make picks for you! PM me with picks I can make up until 2 or 3 am EST... PM NHPlanner with picks for first thing in the am...

    I'm for anything that would make this draft move faster.

    OK...eight hours. I've been swayed. And having a draft buddy is a good idea. Just don't pick someone right ahead of you or you may give away your strategy...

    And don't use an entire list. If you're 4 picks away, obviously 4 choices is enough!

    If I plan to be away for more than a couple of hours I'll get Mastif a couple of picks. Most of the time I am not far from access.

    I'm around all the time. I check like a crack head needs a fix. Cutting to 8 hours is fine by me, even if it includes the wee hours of the morning. I try to check before bed around (12ish) and when I get up for work (6:30ish). 8-|
