supplemental drafts


supplemental drafts

Lately, I keep missing out on these drafts. This last time, I visited the league at 3:58 pm on the 18th and there was 11/12 joined. Then on the 19th at 3:30 pm I visited again and somehow it was day 4 with 2 hrs remaining and the draft had been finished 6 hrs ago. Can anybody explain how that can happen?

Re: supplemental drafts

Game 1 could happen pretty soon after last person drafts. Let’s say it happened 5p. Game 2 would be around 1a and game 3 around 9a. And that matches your 2 hours left until game 4 at 3p.

You can setup to be emailed or texted when league fills and games start. That would help. But yeah, checking 24 hours later you could definitely miss.

Re: Re: supplemental drafts

If you are lucky enough to receive an email saying that games have started in your league, check the time that the email was sent (not when you received it, when it was sent). games run every 8 hours, so game 3 will be run 16 hrs after game 1 - not exactly though, there's usually anywhere from 5 to 15 minute delay. Not really hard to figure out, just requires some math.

With Hotmail I have never not gotten the “league has started” email. Yahoo right now is blocking almost all PC emails. I’ve tried numerous email vendors and it doesn’t matter which one I use, unfortunately, Yahoo always blocks it.

I do recommend texts though as well if you are not getting emails.

Re: supplemental drafts

I get them sent to Yahoo and haven't noticed an issue. Definitely got the league started one recently for the Auto I’m in.

That’s good to know, thanks.

it works for gmail accounts

Re: supplemental drafts

I get every injury and breaking news for my teams with gmail. It doesn't even get marked as spam.

Re: Re: supplemental drafts

I don't always get the games started emails with my Gmail. I check the spam - nothing. Not the end of the world, but annoying.
