    How does this work and how soon would it wrap up? I've never done anything other than an online, one-day draft?

    It is very simple. We do it on Cyburbia. One at a time. You snake draft post. So the first person posts their draft pick, then gives a time that the second person must draft by... I think we usually go with 4 or 6 hours after. You then have that window to get your pick in. It usually takes about a week to get all the results in. Then the Commish puts the teams in for each player, and we go from there.

    It works really well, it just takes forever.

    Same can be said for the feared Cyburbia North league.... although it took me two PMs....

    2012 Draft date

    So we decided on 8/13 as the kick-off date for the draft, right?

    Reading that we "snake draft post" does that mean in each thread for each round we pick 1 through 8 and then 8 again back down to 1 to complete the round and the thread then closes? In which case a round is actually 16 picks in total?

    Not that I would complain about picking first in every round.

    That makes sense to me, it's just the Round 2 thread (and all subsequent Rounds) has the same order listed as Round 1. Not that I'm complaining!

    What's the clock - 4 or 6 hours - and are we doing the Viking picks as in the past?

    Also starting from scratch right? If so I may need to PM my 2nd selection pick... I am on semi vacay that day.

    Maybe I missed this listed elsewhere, but by going through Week 16, that means Week 17 is available. Is it the plan for the winners of the North and South leagues to play against each other on Week 17?

    Bingo. What do we have for the winner.... a great chance to get beat up by the Cyburbia North!!!

    I thought we were starting at 11am EST. Unless you are the first drafter and want to start.

    I looked back and we used to suspend the clock at 6PM Eastern, so that's how I am running the South draft.

    Same here. Unless you are a Viking, then you can register your pick.

    Feel free to draft when the clock is stopped, but if you cannot sign in you won't lose your pick.
