Mock Auction Kickoff at 12:50 today!! :)

Post by oscar15 »

Reducing the number of teams from 10 to 9 created a "glitch". Fixed now. If you want M. Cabrera you better hurry! Only 23 hours and 50 minutes left!

Teams reduced to 9 (Stoggie is joining as I type)

Finally, please be patient. I have never set one of the things up before and I'm no Rock. :-B

Peace
oscar


Done
Location: couchmangers.com
Name: Leftovers Mock Auction
Bidding start time: 8 hours
Bidding reset time: 8 hours
Password: leftover


Settings can be adjusted on the run

I started the auction with 1 nomination per team then increased it to a maximum of 20 players up for auction at any given time . I'm not sure if I have it set correctly but adjusting it looks like it will not be a problem.

I have the auction set to start manually so we can post the starting time here.

The sooner the better.

I don't know, looks like a fun league to me. :-b

We are test driving the process to see if we want to switch to an auction format.

Full rosters are not necessary.

Ok guys, go ahead and join up as soon as you can. We'll do enough of this to get a feel for it and see what we want to do. Plus it gives us something to do while we're waiting to fill up these last 2 spots.

Well, I've only made one nomination and bid, but so far I like it. The way we have it set now is every player stays up for auction until 24 hours passes with no bids. So there is no set expiration time, as long as you can check in at least every 24 hours you never miss the boat on a player. You can also set a reserve. So Cabrera was at $10, I put in $20 on him, but it only raised his price to $11, just like on eBay. So if oscar comes along and bids $15, it will automatically bid $16 for me. Oscar is the leader, he'll have to tell us what else is available for options. At this point we would need every team nominating a player every day it looks like.

Yeah, just had a look, and seems relatively easy to use. Just don't know how long it would take to do a proper draft?

So what's the end game here Rock? Looks like the league would prefer to do a snake draft, based on the poll on here.

Does that mean we would need to set up a second league to do an auction?

And are you / we still looking for another two players for this league anyway?

If everyone nominated a player a day, we would be done in the same time as if we completed a round a day in a snake draft. So we have time.

It does appear we are leaning toward a traditional draft, but I know some people had reservations about the auction just not knowing what to expect. I left the poll so people could change their vote if they decided they'd like to give it a try.

We will not be creating another league. It's been pulling teeth this year to fill up this one, and I run one at work. I don't need more work. :-{

We've added some new owners, we're waiting on one of the 3 from last year to show up. Assuming they don't soon we'll find one more and be on our way. I know as soon as I give away emb0's spot he'll show up. Guess serves him right for being so late. Pitchers & catchers man.
