New Points/Retirement Rule

Hey guys - starting now, if I do not receive new points from you for four tournaments in a row, you will be retired. I will try and send PMs to warn people, but I will also post in here the last time everyone sent points so you can see.

To be honest, if you want to be successful in any game you have to send new points regularly (preferably every week) - I shouldn't have to badger you!

E.g. I send new points for Gold Coast, but not Sydney or Australian Open, I would have to send new ones for the 4th tournament (Paris in this example) or will be retired.

Last points received:-

Dulko - Quebec
Cibulkova - Olympics
Peer - Moscow
Ivanovic - Moscow
Dementieva - Tokyo
Vaidisova - Quebec
Golovin - Moscow
S.Williams - Moscow
Davenport - Olympics
Safina - Quebec
Dechy - Stuttgart
Sharapova - Quebec
Domachowska - Olympics
Capriati - Moscow
Jankovic - Moscow
Safarova - Stuttgart
Hingis - Moscow
Hantuchova - Quebec
Olaru - US Open
Salerni - Moscow
Muller - Moscow
Cornet - Quebec
Paszek - Quebec
Bremond - Stuttgart
Kirilenko - Quebec
Kuznetsova - Stuttgart
Wozniacki - Moscow
Mattek - Stuttgart
Tulyaganova - Stuttgart
Rybarikova - Moscow
V.Williams - Stuttgart
Benesova - Quebec
Radwanska - ?

Re: New Points/Retirement Rule

Those who haven't sent since Dubai are lucky I have been having computer troubles, as you should have sent new points for Miami.

All those who have not sent new points since Bangalore (or Dubai) need to for Charleston which starts on Sunday:-

Olaru
Ivanovic
Dechy
Sharapova
Wozniacki
Chakvetadze
Radwanska
Hantuchova
Harkleroad
Dokic
Petrova
Muller


Interesting to note how the Top 5 send points almost every tournament, whilst 6 of the bottom 7 are in the above list

Re: New Points/Retirement Rule

I didnt know where to put this so I'll put it here

I little suggestion for this game (which is a good one by the way) is with the photos when posting results, have the photo from the surface the tournaments been played. Like for Wimbledon, have last years Wimbledon photos and for the USO Series have stuff from last years American tournaments. It seems better than seeing a player on a clay court in the grass season and so on. You dont need to find new photos for each tournaments, just change each surface. Other than that this is a great game, and hopefully it'll stay like that. http://www.wtnphotos.com/index.php is a good place for pictures.
