Re: 2012 PAW Management Thread -

By letter of the rule, they shouldn't, but as he is charged with a WC anyway and asked for it in time, I feel it would be a little strict not to count his picks, especially in a slam. The intent was clear and the player didn't get any unfair advantage.
I'd settle for a warning or something like that.

We have to establish for future cases what to do with WC that are erroneously posted in the commitments thread. Perhaps state something clearer than "not here please", e.g. "a WC request in this thread will not be valid".
It's not the first time a player has made this mistake.

Thanks for the reply Archer - some good points regarding the message in the commitments thread. It shouldn't be a problem to change it as you suggest.

On reflection, I think that I have been a bit harsh not to accept the picks and feel that the player hasn't received any unfair advantage in this case - the player is certainly not fighting for a place near the top of the leaderboard. Therefore, unless other managers post different opinions, I will re-instate the players picks during the update at PAW RG tomorrow (Friday) evening.

Re: 2012 PAW Management Thread -

sorry for the late reaction , but i agree with Archer on this one. It's easy to make the mistake and post a WC request in the commitments thread instead of the tournament thread.

If he/she makes a WC request in the commitments thread then i or the tournament manager have to send a PM and tell him/her to ask a WC in the tournament thread and show the link of the first request here. Some PAW players are not all day online and it can take sometimes 15 hours till he/she notices it's in the wrong thread.

Re: 2012 PAW Management Thread -

Imho, rules should be simplified.

The paragraph

Quote:
If a player posts PAW picks without a commitment or a WC request, then the picks will not be valid until a WC request has been made. Therefore, any previously posted picks will only become valid after the WC has been granted.
to replace on

Quote:
If a player posts PAW picks without a commitment or a WC request, then is considered, that the inquiry about WC is made implicitly.

Re: 2012 PAW Management Thread - We need a manager for Eastbourne

I'll do Eastbourne.

Put me down for Palermo and Bstad too, may withdraw from those due to holiday plans though. Will give a week's notice.

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
