The BEST Trivia Game on the boards is about to launch.

Nothing.

Run by - L i n a - and Andrew.

Rules and Signup Thread

This is a game where you can test your knowledge of women's tennis trivia against other players from around the world. Or something.....

You need three things to play a match: MSN Messenger, the players, and an umpire. The umpire asks questions about women's tennis and whoever comes up with the correct answer the fastest gets a game. The first player to six games and win by 2 will win the set. If a set goes to six games all, a tiebreak is played. The first player to win two points in the tiebreak wins the set. Tiebreaks are not played in fifth sets of Grand Slams.
-------------------------------
Rules:

1. All matches are played using MSN Messenger, so you obviously need to to play. It is free, and can be downloaded by visiting messenger.msn.com

2. All matches must be completed by the dates and times designated in each tournament's schedule. If the matches are not completed I will issue walkovers.

3. Cheating is a big no-no in this game. I won't otlerate it and there are harsh penalties for doing it. If you suspect cheating during a match, do not wait, tell the umpire. If the umpire doesn't respond and you still feel that cheating is happening, please tell me.

3a. Penalties for cheating:

For the first occurance during a match, a warning will be issued.

For the second and third occurances, a game will be taken away from the cheater.

For the forth occurance, the cheater will lose the match by retirement.

In cases where a player continually cheats throughout numerous matches, the player may be banned from the game.

3b. Bias umping is when an umpire is favoring one of the opponents by asking questions specific to that player's faves, allowing player to cheat, etc. Umpires will be put on probabtion if they are being bias. This means that the umpire can only ump a match if I or one of the "senior umps" is present. In extreme cases, umpires who continually are bias can be banned from umping matches.

4. Both players must agree to an umpire prior to the start of the match, however once a match has started, the umpire cannot be changed unless both players agree or there is bias umping.

5. Match conduct is very important in Nothing. Should a player swear or be very disrespectful to his/her opponent during a match, the umpire can conduct disciplinary action. For the first offence, the umpire must give a public warning. For the second, a game will be taken away. For the third, a retirement can occur.
