This question has most likely been asked and answered before, but I couldn't find it in a quick search. Why, exactly, do we use a forum for our draft when flea is set up to do it and automatically emails the next person after you make your pick? Is it just like a tradition or something?

One reason was because it kinda makes the cafe obsolete and you wouldn't even need it if that was the case and I didn't really want to make the Cafe turn into that since I want it to keep what activity it does get without going under. Other is for Archives. You can come here and easily find the start up draft, following rookie drafts to see who you got, where guys fell, you can link the drafts to other places and forums for achives etc. Eventually instead of just putting all the years into 1 thread, I'm going to archive all 5 rounds of the draft threads and rename them to '2009 rookie draft' in one big link so they are easier to find.


Flea doesn't give that capability yet. Once you do the draft and next year rolls around that's it. I do leagues where we do the drafts there, and even when I go back a year and see standings the draft is empty. It's always interesting to me to see that kinda stuff. It's also a bit harder to discuss deals, etc on flea. If they added an 'online' feature and some instant messenger chat along with archiving the drafts they would make leaps and bounds towards making it much easier to do.

Very good reasons that make 100% sense. Thank you.

Gonna get a replacement pick to make the pick for Eddy tonight since he's been MIA for awhile and it's his last pick.

Next guy has been notified he can pick (over 24h ago). Just the dog days I guess.
