Let's Talk About a Community Draft

Okay ladies and Gents, this has come up a few times in the comment threads so I figured I will get the ball rolling by starting a fanpost to get the idea ironed out into something real. I only joined last season, so I'm not sure how things were run in the past, so I will more than value the input from anyone that has been around for a past Stampede Blue Draft.

My thoughts:

I got two methods that we can conduct the draft, either using a spreadsheet through Microsoft online that's on a Skydrive account that outsiders can update, or we keep the spreadsheet up as the official guide for everyone to follow, but only one person can change it -- individual draft picks can be done in the comment thread. I'm guessing the latter will probably be easier.

Not sure how the timing works, I am guessing you just have to be patient as we work our way through the order? Is there a limit that after say 2 days, the draftee just loses the pick and we move on? Just some questions on this.

Finally, we would have to decide a method to determine who gets what team. I am thinking just a simple draw from the hat or something that we would have to trust was random. I don't want to do a first-come-first-serve method because it seems unfair. Any thoughts here?

I do really like this idea, and I am more than willing to help facilitate it, and I'm sure there are others who are wiling to do the same. So in the end, this is just something to get us started, and maybe if we can work something out and get the team assignments out within the the next week or so we can give everyone a few days to study up on what their team needs and what not. Hopefully we can get everything together and have the draft before the real one happens in May.
