Please, please, please add the feature to hold online auction drafts on Fleaflicker for 2011! We used ESPN for the auction draft then I manually entered everything onto Fleaflicker. While this works, it is hugely inconvenient for everyone involved. Auction drafts are becoming more and more popular, so I am confident many leagues will use this feature. I know this was on Fleaflickers to-do list for 2010 so I am checking on the status to see if this is still in the works or if it has been scrapped.
I agree - it's a make-or-break for me. I'd love to play here, but it will depend on whether or not I can do an auction draft next year. Please get it running for 2012!
So it sounds like this will eventually happen, but it is difficult to know which season it will be in effect for. This will be a huge upgrade to an already amazing website once it is complete.
In the works with many other enhancements, but can't promise a timetable whatsoever
how about a "ball park" timeframe?
How many years will it take?
I think it's safe to say more then two.
This is a feature fleaflicker really needs to add, it is keeping the site from being as good as it can be. Without this and 2 week playoff games my new league will probably be starting at espn. Which sucks because I prefer fleaflicker's interface.
I'll go ahead and add that this is the only thing keeping me on ESPN and Yahoo over you guys. You've got the opportunity to take over both of them with a much more customizable, cleaner site.
With how great this site is, it is absolutely astounding that they don't have auction capability on this site.
Any updates to this for the coming season?
Nothing to update right now in terms of a timetable, but it's very important and on our active development agenda as we continue to work on improving our draft software. Hopefully we'll have it soon as we know how important it is to our users and site.
So it was on Fleaflicker's to-do list in 2010, but it still is not done. I'm just trying to comprehend that.
It's something we are making progress on for sure. We apologize for the delay but certainly hope to have it soon -- we realize its importance and are working on auction drafts in developmental testing now.
We still do not have a firm timetable, though.
