Q: I created a draft and need to make a change.

A: Once a mock draft is opened for signup, it can no longer be edited.

Q: What are the system requirements of the live draft software?

A: There are only two very basic requirements:

1) You need Flash 7 or higher and a browser that supports Flash which is any browser that's fairly recent such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, recent AOL versions, etc.

* The latest version of Flash available for free download at Adobe's website

2) Any non-proxied connection to the Internet. Our live draft software works great over dial-up connections and only takes 25-30 seconds to load over a dial-up line the first time and 15-20 seconds each time after that. Over a broadband connection, the time to load is typically less than 10 seconds.

What does "non-proxied connection" mean?

Proxy servers are used by large corporations and some hotels for large scale Internet deployment. If you're using DSL, cable, or dial-up, you'll have no problems using our software.

If you're not sure about these two things, try our Technology Test

Q: I joined a draft, but now I'm not able to make it. What can I do?

A: You can remove your team from a mock draft up to 30 minutes before the draft start time.
If you are unable to remove yourself in time, be sure to rank some players. Your team will be put on auto-select after the first missed pick and your pre-rank list will be used to select players.

Q: Can I delete my completed drafts?

A: Not currently, however drafts older than 4 months will no longer appear on your completed draft list, unless you explicitly select Show All Historical Drafts.

Q: What do I get with a premium account as opposed to a limited account?

A: Checkout the Premium Features list

Q: What if I want to draft a player that isn't in the player database?

A: Every draft includes a handful of placeholder players. Simply search for "placeholder" and draft a placeholder that matches the positional requirements of the desired player. Submit a request to MDC support to have that player added and specify the round and pick of the draft so we can replace the placeholder.

Q: I upgraded Flash on my Mac and now I cannot enter the MDC live draft software.

A: This is a problem with the latest Flash version. The new version of Flash (Player 9 115) is not working properly on updated macs. The older Flash Version 9.0.47.0 does work.... it's just not easily available.
Here are the steps:
1) Download the uninstaller for Flash Player from Adobe. http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/alternates/ (at bottom of page)
2) Uninstall existing Flash while all browsers are turned off.
3) Download the Archived Flash Players (this is on the Adobe developer website: http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=tn_14266 )
Download Version 9...this is all the players of version 9 for all formats.
4) In archive folder choose the correct version for the Mac Version: 9.0.47. Flashplayer9r47_mac.dmg is for PPC machine; flashplayer9r47_ub_mac.dmg.zip is for Intel based machines.
5) Install the appropriate version of the program and Voila....it works again.
