You did not change the draft time because “it enabled 2 more people to draft” - for starters, that is factually inaccurate as it ignores myself who could draft at 5, but was unaware of the new start time - you changed the draft time around the same time as your Blitz post, so all you know when you changed the time is that you can draft at that time, you had no idea about anybody else’s circumstances.
How did you compromise when at no point, were other times suggested by anybody prior to you changing the time? You took the feedback? What feedback? Aside from Ant’s suggestion to drop the time limit for picks, there was none.
Also given there are a multitude of timezone websites and apps available, how on earth did you think for 3 weeks that a draft set for 8am Italian time was 1am?
Using Blitz to post changes in comp settings is perfectly sound practice, but it requires adequate notice - it has never been a prerequisite of the comp that one needs to check Blitz every few hours, and to seemingly hold up what you provided as acceptable is rubbish. Participating or not in a draft, shouldn’t come down to whether you opt to check Blitz during your lunch break or not. As for the emails - a 3rd of the comp has yahoo.com.au accounts which if they’re anything like mine, solely exist because of the comp, they’re not something to be checked on even a semi-regular basis.
Would’ve I been able to draft at the new time? No, but with adequate notice I would’ve at least had been able to set rankings, which would’ve minimised the damage, as Yahoo’s default rankings are not designed for our league’s category set-up.
Usually I don’t have an issue with how you run the comp and it is because of you that I have any interest in ice hockey in the first place, but if you pull this ■■■■ again, I’m done.
