Just so we are clear, I understand you cannot PM people from a teams forum just becuause your mock has a team open for tha particular team. However, if you know someone in another teams forum, and that team that they are a fan of is open, can you offer them that spot if they want it through PM? I mean I know its kind of a fine line, but considering alot of people on this thing know each other or have talked about something other then sports over PM at some point is that more of an acceptable practice. As long as your not harassing anyone?

One thing that I will add and feel like I should point out is this:

1. These things are 100% fake, which means that you are doing it for fun and realism at time can go completely out of the window.

2. People don't have to do these, that means if you have an issue with the person who is running it or the way it is being run, why did you join in the first place, remember that before you get mad at someone.

If a GM misses his pick, dont just pick for them. Give them 5 picks to get back on. Real life happens sometimes, even if it says someone is on FF, they could've easily left their computer on and stepped away!

When you skip GM's picks, there is a good chance they wont finish the mock.

Just my take on things.

I can agree with that Reggie, but in the first round if a GM misses 5-10 picks they miss out on players that would generally be there at their pick.

The vote was conditional, as TD could change his pick if he didn't like it if he signed on again.

Okay, say you have PMed or talked to someone before & you have done a GM mock draft with them in the past. Are you allowed to PM them asking them if they are interested in joining your mock draft?

Perfectly legal. Just don't spam out PMs to everybody is the Webmaster's message.

To play devil's advocate, a GM should PM someone they trust their big board (even if the person is not involved in the mock) if they are expecting "real life" to interfere.
