Due to a recent incident in Brussels, involving several OOP's posted by several players, it's time we specify the details of rules in regard to posting Order of play.
Without further dragging the story of who did what and who is to blame, I'll focus here only on the existing problem. So...
One suggestion (I think it was made by coolfish1103) was that we don't even post official OOP in the tipping thread of a tournament, and that we just let people find OOP for themselves. I don't think this is a good idea actually, for several reasons. First of all, some players are new to the forum and don't know much about tennis, so they could have a tough time finding trustworthy information (as this incident showed, even some tipping regulars can sometimes source incorrect information). Also, if every player would be forced to find daily OOP for him/herself, that would require additional work for the players, so many could lose interest in the game as doing this would take away more of their time. All in all, we have always posted OOP, and I think we should continue with that.
My suggestion is that for each tournament we establish not only the moderator/manager, but also the co-manager, someone who would help out the manager with things like the OOP. It would be someone chosen by the manager personally, and someone in whom he/she has enough trust of being able to do a good job.
We should also specify sources from which managers should take OOP's. My suggestion is quite obvious, that the mandatory source should be the WTA website, that the alternative source should be the tournament website, and that only if neither of those is accessible or has an OOP posted, the moderator should be allowed to choose where he gets it from.
Another idea that I have is that we establish a rule by which official OOP should always be posted on the first page of the thread (in a reserved post). Another OOP (provided by the co-manager) could be posted anywhere in the trhead, but the official one should always be in the same post, so that players can easily find it.
So, tell me what do you think about all this, wether you have some other ideas, should we do some things differently etc. Every idea will be open for discussion.
Take care and enjoy the game!
