ok, i've fixed it so that we the draft was moved back to this Friday at 6pm EST. For some reason, when there was an odd # of teams, it automatically switched the draft type to auto-pick. After playing around with the draft settings, i was able to get it switched back to a live draft on this friday at 6 EST.
We have an even number of teams currently and any new entries will only be accepted if the number is even. I.E. when i check the league at 3pm on Friday, if we have an odd number of teams, i will be booting the last team to sign up. This way, all of our spots are protected, and we're guaranteed to have a live draft go down seamlessly.
