View Full Version : Real Time IRC forum mock

04-13-2010, 07:07 PM
Where: IRC

When: Applications due by April 16th 12:00 PM EST Teams announced Friday April 17th 8:00 PM EST. Draft is tentatively starts Saturday April 17th 6:00 PM EST.

Who: You, but only if you apply!

What: See Below!

I am currently taking applications for the April IRC Forum Mock. I will be running the mock.

Differences from before: We will be doing this LIVE!

Honestly, if you want to work on a specific team, get one or two other fans who plan on applying and put each other in the category that you want to work with each other. That will help your chances.

Descriptions of positions

Head GM: Runs the team and gets input from all sides to make decisions.

Co-GMs: Work together to create a cohesive team. Any can make final decisions but NEED input from each other.

Assistant GMs: Gives input to Head GMs to make final decisions. May post picks, but need Heads approval first.

If you would like to participate, please fill out the application below and send it to my PM box or broth223@aim.com .


Teams of Preference (please list 1 through 5):

Are there any other teams you would accept a position for?

Are there any teams you absolutely wouldn't accept a position for?

Why do you think you would be a good Head GM in this Forum Mock?

Would you accept a position as an Assistant or Co-GM? Why or Why not?

What other Official Forum Mocks have you been involved with?

You MUST use IRC for this mock is that acceptable?

Is there anyone else you would specifically like to/would work with?

Any other comments you'd like to add (why you would be good, etc).

Here are some of the details:

Trades: All trades will go through me. No “major” player will be traded unless it is indicated he is unhappy or what not. Providing a link that a player may be traded will likely result in it being accepted. ANY PLAYER THAT WAS A UDFA OR RFA CANNOT BE TRADED. This isn’t a fantasy draft, it is a mock draft. If your trade isn't accepted, don't ***** please as it makes my job harder. I also will limit younger players (rookies/second year player) trades.

Trade Submission: All trades will be submitted through IRC PM and possibly SWDC PM

Missing Picks: It is a live draft so if you are present and time expires then just like the real draft you are skipped and the next team can pick IF you are not present then either I or some backup will pick for you.

Rounds: The draft will be 1-3 rounds, using the official NFL draft order including compensatory picks.


Q: What is this IRC? Are we using it?

Click on the link above. IRC is a chat client that a bunch of guys from NFLDC have been using and chatting in real time. For the Forum Mock, it has worked well to use this to talk/submit trades. Picks will be on the Forum, but all trading will be in IRC. We will be at the #ForumMock channel.

Q: Do I have to download IRC?

A: No you can use the webpage http://www.gamesurge.net/chat/ and type in

/join #ForumMock

Q: Do Team Leaders, Moderators, Head Moderators, and Admins still need to apply?

Yes, they do. Though I know many on reputation alone, I'd like an application from everyone for organization reasons along with team preference, etc.

Q: When will selections be?

Probably starting Saturday.

Is this like the Fantasy Offseason?

No, it is not. There are no free agent signings. I am going to do my very best to limit trades in this. I want a Forum MOCK (i.e. mocking the actual draft,) not a fantasy draft. Be prepared for this. If you just want to claim a team and just pick your draft picks, I would love you.

Will you have a team?

I will not have a team unless I have to, I will be serving as the commish.

Any questions? Post them and I'll get to them some time tomorrow.

Broth what is going to be the time OTC for each pick? I want to do this but I have plans for Saturday night as well.

I'm looking at a 5-10 min clock. If we can get this coordinated I wouldn't mind splitting this over one or two days if not we'll see how it goes. I'm looking to do at least a round a night if not 2.

04-14-2010, 10:18 AM
Broth are we going to have a thread for approved trades, depth chart, trading block, etc made?

04-15-2010, 05:08 PM
Hey everyone we still have more spots open lets get these filled up.

04-16-2010, 02:05 PM
OK guys teams are announced I will be in control of all open teams anyone who wants a second team feel free. Anyone who didn't sign up and still wants to participate, teams will go first come first serve basis. I'm still looking for the draft to start tomorrow at around 6:00 PM EST and a 5 minute clock. If enough people (in the top 20 picks) can't make it at 6 then I will push it back towards 7.

Any trades involving just picks will be instantly approved. As are any trades with non starter veterans (5+ years in). Trades with major players or starters will have to be sent to me for approval. Also the Tedd Ginn Trade and any trade prior to this post are already done. Any trade that happens in the next 27 hours will be up to the owners to hash out but are already approved.

If I'm not online then PM the trades to me if it is an instantly approved trade then you can post it in the trades approved thread.

Any questions? just float me a PM.

Cardinals 2nd on the block

04-18-2010, 07:21 AM
Odrick was taken in 2 spots earlier and Burnett was merely taken right before the selection. This draft is completely worthless. :mad:

04-19-2010, 07:33 PM
Does anyone still want to continue after 3 rounds? If people still wanna do it I'll continue to commish.
