ESPN.com draft time change?

Postby A Fleshner Fantasy » Mon Aug 01, 2011 11:00 am

Incredibly dumb question, but I'm the commissioner of an ESPN private custom league, and it turns out I want to change the draft time, and I can't find the option to do so. Is it possible to change it or do I need to create an entirely new league?

If it's an old league, you have to activate it, if new then you should be able to follow these steps:

  1. Click the "LM Tools" tab
  2. Then "Edit League Settings" link
  3. Then "Draft" tab
  4. Then "Edit Draft Settings" (red button)
  5. You should be able to select draft type, date, time, and enter a location and/or notes below

Where is LM tools? I've looked on several different pages and used the find function, and have been unable to find it.

Shows up for me in the black tabs near the top of the page, on the far right side (In order: League, My Team, Players, Standings, Scoreboard, LM Tools, Teams)

Weird, doesn't show up there for me. I have everything else, other than LMTools. If worse comes to worse, I'll just delete this league and start a new one, but that would be annoying, since we're all in this one and everything.

Sounds like you're not set up as an LM? Can you change transaction counters or LM messages or anything like that? On a related note, was trying to add a buddy as LM to my ESPN league so he could help with some of our offseason stuff, and it seems like there's no way to delegate LM powers to anyone who didn't enter the year with them. Also weird. Don't want to poach the thread, just wondering if they're related and it's an ESPN-side issue? :-?

Wish I could answer your question, but I don't know the first thing about ESPN.

For mine, could it be because it's a custom league and possibly different somehow from LM? Probably reaching, but I created the league, so I would assume that would make me the LM.

Either way, thanks for your help. I appreciate it.

Ours is a custom league too, so I don't think that's the difference. That said, if you created the league you're "the man", so I'm puzzled. If I find anything out when looking into my situation, I'll let you know ;-D
