    Ok so tonight I try to do my recruiting from the dynasty wire while im at work. I will never make this mistake again. I lost 60 minutes on one guy because i tried to schedule him for a visit and soon as the little screen popped up it said there has been an error. So i went back and lost the entire hour and the prospect cant be called again.

    Hopefully noone else makes the same mistake as i did.

    I always recruit online. The key is making sure you only press a button once and then let it respond. If you get impatient and hit it again, you will get an error everytime.

    Agreed- I think it will error out and cost you time if you go to "make promise" and then cancel instead of making a selection as well

    But any time you offer a visit on-line you get the error, it doesn't matter if you click it only once.

    The only time I get an error for offering a visit is when the recruit doesn't have an open weekend when I have a home game.

    I don't like recruiting online because it is buggy and eats up your time on occasion. Console never does that.

    Since I figured out those 2 issues I haven't lost time in months. In my opinon its a million times faster to recruit online and my wife doesnt think I was playing my ps3 for 3 hours straight.

    lol i lost on both my CB's to you and LSU because of bored work days and couldn't resist the temptation of recruiting. But I will never recruit other than the ps3 again.

    I had that happen to me twice I think. The first time, I said I'd never let it happen again. Well, I made the mistake and it did happen again. Since then I have not used the recruiting function online. I just think the time is too valuable on some recruits to take an unnecessary chance.

    Loosing a CB to LSU is the right move to make if you value the interests of the recruit ;)

    After being burned by dynasty wire recruiting a couple of time I have found that Mozilla Firefox does not seem to have the same issues with crashing/losing time that Internet Explorer does.

    And if you get an error pop up it seems to not kick you off of a call if you click the "x" instead of "OK"- clicking OK will drop the call every time from my experience.
