Finding a time that is good for everyone, with participants potentially from around the world, might prove difficult. Then there's all the problems that will arise if someone doesn't show up, or experience technical issues - seems very unfair that you should end up with all the worst parts just because your net is down for half an hour sunday night. I imagine a lot of people would want out if something like this happened.
A different way of doing it, as I mentioned in the first post, is leaving it to a computer program. Here's the software I'm imagining:
1: The draft lots are added to an online database, and each participant is given a user account.
2: Everyone logs in and create their personal prioritized list, sorting all the lots by how much they want them.
3: When all the lists are ready, the computer assigns a random draft order.
4: Using this order, the computer performs the draft, always picking for each individual the highest prioritized available part on their list.
What do you think?

Also, since it seems like one person is going to be doing the purchasing, it seems you could do a larger set like the village raid (which is on sale on Amazon now anyway) and just buy a few sets with the cost being split equally among participants.
