Draft Streaming Commentary Chat Changes for Day-Two…

 

We tried something different with our format for the draft commentary last night. Some things I liked, some things I need to change.

A couple of thoughts and changes on it for tonight…

— I will give a more detailed analysis of the pick after each pick.

Last night, I got caught up in the flow of the chat. I lost focus on getting detailed with the pick itself on some players.

Everything moves so fast during the draft – the clock ticks quick… I’m listening to the TV. I’m reading the group ideas. I’m typing as fast as I can. It all moves very fast, but I am going to make sure I provide more analysis on each pick after the pick…even if I run behind a little bit. So, you’ll see that change tonight. Less one sentence thoughts, more multi-sentence analysis of the pick (NFL and fantasy) and how the team is doing (now that they will have multiple picks stacking up).

 

— There is no perfect way to show the chat order of events.

If we have the latest comment always on top and keep stacking…the context of what you see first is lost by the set-up underneath. You’ll have to go down to where you last left off and then back up.

If we have the latest comment always on the bottom…after a while, you’ll have to scroll a mile to see the latest.

We’re trying to take the snapshots/snippets on a topic and show it in a chronological/proper reading order. A quick hit from the discussion and then move on to the next hit/section.

Without cutting edge technology this is the best display option we have. I think it works like reading pages/sections of a weird book/magazine. I hope so anyway.

 

We’ll deploy the tweaks tonight and see if it makes more sense. Starting up around 6pm ET tonight with the draft itself kicking off at 7pm ET.
