Good idea! Two days should be enough for players who are serious about participating to find a partner. But I also think that we should maintain a "partner list" for doubles throughout the year and the manager would copy it into the tournament thread so that players know how many different partners they've had during the year, but also in order for them to see who of the other players is available for that tournament and who isn't (because of already having 3 partners during the year).

This is actually from Fredrik... Since I will be the next manager for doubles tournament, the Olympics... I will update and create the list later...

Btw, I will update the result in wimbledon in 3 hours...

The same as for other Premier events (with the winner being awarded a wild-card into YEC besides points).

Re: Rules thread - 2012

ok... but maybe we should have different points for the 3rd and 4th

Don't you think it's a little late for those sorts of changes, with the Games so coming up so soon?

It might be cool to award 2nd and 3rd best with something as well, cause there are three medals given at the Olympics, but I don't know what, and I fear it's too late to be making stuff up so close to the start of the event.

Re: Rules thread - 2012

No special rules for doubles, right!? And I will use the same ranking points as singles in doubles

It's not really a change. We didn't have ranking points for the olympics yet.

And the 3rd should get more bonus points than the 4th imo.

Yup, in doubles everything stays the same as it was in the previous events.

Well, technically it's not a change so we might give the "bronze medalist" something like 100 bonus points instead of 80...and we might even give the runner-up 130 instead of 120 to make it half way between 1st and 3rd...? don't know about others, but I wouldn't mind.

How about I just ask people next week in the Baku thread (which as it seems I'll be running) if anyone objects - although I really don't see why anyone would.

160 - 120 - 90 - 70, imo. So still same amount of points for 3rd/4th together, but different distribution.

but somehow I can't help from hoping
to find someone to talk to
who likes the way I am
who when he sees me wants to again

I'm not crazy about this suggestion. First of all, does that leave out those who finish between 9th and 12th? If it doesn't, how much do they get - half of 90 or half of 70 (now they're getting 30)? And second of all, it would mean that the runner-up would be the only one who wouldn't benefit from the changes; the winner gets a wild-card into a YEC and all other bonus point winners get an increase.
