As I posted above it is a proper time to relect current board members. I am pretty sure You could do more for TT then ....

I am bad and that's good.
I will never be good and that's not bad.
I will always be me.

Re: TT Board Position Available - Apply Here

As if anyone other than Frederik would want to apply now Seems like it's pretty clear that he is going to win.

I wanna vote for Michael

Frederik for this vacancy - be a crime for it to go to anyone else.

I agree with you in as much as the one who's done nothing for years certainly needs replacing - what's the point of becoming a Board Member if you do nothing for the game, don't ever manage, don't ever contribute a single thing to it - they're blocking someone else who can do good for the game.

As Laszlo says - Michael (and Andelko) are marvellous and fun managers and contributors who could work wonders for TT here and it's ridiculous that people such as those who could contribute massively to this great game don't get the chance purely for this reason.

I already told the board two years ago that I would like to join the board if they need a new member sometime..now it´s obvious that Frederik is more suited to replace Sexysova but as I said, I would join the board to help with checking draws, awards, management help etc. once a current member doesn´t want to continue his job (which isn´t the case right now)

What you mean they've been happy to coast along with just 4 members and basically keeping an empty chair for years when you or someone else could have contributed fully, I'd always assumed it was because there was nobody else around who would take the position - what a waste, truly unbelievable.

your willingness to become a board member was one of the reasons why we wanted to open this up to everyone rather than just hand it to frederik. we appreciate what people like you (and andjelko, among others) have done in tt and we knew that you were interested in a position if one became available.

"the one who's done nothing for years". and you go around complaining when people insult you. what do board members do? resolve problems and discuss issues. that is the role of the board. ITZ takes a full part in those discussions. there is nothing in the small print of being a board member that makes you have to be responsible for this, that or the next thing. you don't have to manage a million tournaments per year.
and you shouldn't belittle michael or andjelko's role in tt. i feel that both of them are great managers and have worked wonders for the game. you don't need to be on the board to have a positive affect on the game.

some more insulting language. oh good. listen adey, i've had PMs from more than one person who think that you have overstepped the mark in your dealings with certain people. several people are furious with the way in which they feel that you hounded ondrej off the board, and however much i disagree with the sentiment, you've seen posts yourself talking about tt being better before "mad people from mtf came and ruined it" etc. this was obviously directed at you. you constantly say "i'm just a player and i have no interest in doing anything tt-related on this forum" and you've been as good as your word as far as doing any work goes. you're happy to complain about all and sundry without actually lifting a finger to help. your whole attitude means that several people are turned off whatever suggestions or criticisms that you have, whether they are good or bad. you just come off as a hypocrite who is doing his best to destabilise things and it isn't a good look.

Re: TT Board Position Available - Apply Here

now that is dealt with, i think given the support that frederik has received it would be stupid to go ahead with a vote unless adrian or somebody else is desperate for it.

I suggest you re:read the above - Lazslo was suggesting that there be a wholesale election to your Board - I was in fact supporting yourself, Meelis and Joe’s efforts. I also need no explanations of what a Board Member does.

I couldn't agree with you more - and never said otherwise, excellent guys and both friends of mine too - I suggest you re:read again

Not sure if you’re meaning me or the other Adrian there? – but if me of course I am not.

you were criticising ITZ in a hugely dismissive manner.

oh i know what your intent was, but in saying that they are "wasted" in not being on the board, i feel that you are neglecting what people can do for tt when not on the board.

i didn't blame you for ondrej. i'm saying that several people do.

i meant the other adrian as he's the only person who has put himself forward so far, other than frederik.

Re: Frederik - New TT Board Member

I absolutely agree, Frederik is a proper Board Member.
But I still think that the Board should be reelected. (And as far as I can recall you(Chris) mentioned some monthes ago that if somebody calls for an election Board will not be against. (And just to make it clear I will vote for : Meelis, Joe, Frederik, Michi and Chris)

I am bad and that's good.
I will never be good and that's not bad.
I will always be me.
