Drafts - Extended draft pick times and slow drafts
This would allow commissioners to extend the time that is allotted to each team for each pick during the draft longer than the current maximum. Currently, the maximum draft pick time is 2 minutes.

Good idea for those of us that like the slow drafts.
We hold ours on a Google Sheets spreadsheet online. So it's an offline draft. Lots of fun though. Our draft usually takes 8-11 days. First few years it used to take like 16 or 17 days to get it done. But after 10 years of doing it we knock it off in like 8 or so.
Maybe if Yahoo had longer timer options as you petition, we would consider doing ours on Yahoo. But our offline draft has gotten pretty elaborate w/ OTC timer and a bunch of other stuff. Very creative and intense. Lots of fun, much like the real thing.
I'm voting up your idea.

Hello, I would like you to consider extending the draft timer options past two minutes. I would like up to five. We have been drafting live for 20 years and have to move online this year. We take the league too seriously to risk auto picks after two minutes. We don't want to deal with reverting picks and other timer issues.
