But when I was able to log on again, I don't know whether or not to nominate a player because there are currently 11 players up for bid and I don't know if one is for me or not.
When you look and see there are 11 players up for bid, look at the usernames of all the people who initiated the bid. If you are not one of them, it might be your turn. See if any of the names are joejlitz, thriftyrocker, scottaa1, or DVauthrin (the alternates). If they are, they nominated for you and you have to wait until the bidding has ended on that player to make another nomination.

At the time I volunteered for this I was working a fairly mundane job with a set schedule, but I am now working shift-work in an E.R. I have enjoyed the draft thus far, but I don't want to ruin the experience for others. Thanks.
You know, the good thing with this draft is that no one REALLY has to wait too long for some action. If you miss your 24 hour window, people still have 11 other players to bid on and fight for. I don't THINK there is any need to replace anyone and I don't think anyone else does either, given we haven't had a single complaint
- which is VERY
common in regular formats.
Life happens. Just tell life not to happen three times in the same draft.
