View Full Version : Vote for your "TT Board"!

1. Goal of this poll:
The aim is to elect 5 TT players out of these 10 candidates who would officially represent the authority in tennis tipping, solve the different TT problems, and take decisions for the game, like rule changes, when it is needed. These five posters should of course represent everyone in the game, be committed to the game, and have time to be around.

2. Voting rules:
The only votes that count in this election come from tennis tipping player (aka a wtaworld poster who has a singles tt ranking or a doubles tt ranking, ideally both). This is for the good of candidates, so they aren't accused of keeping double-accounts, and trying to rig this election.
This is a multiple choice poll but everybody is allowed to give 5 votes maximum or less. If I see more votes coming from one person, I must void all of them. Due to technical reasons, they'll be still displayed, but won't count. You probably must give all your votes (5 or less) at once, no possibility of adding one later (I'm guessing).
This is not an obligation, but please vote for who you think would be best for the game and not just for someone who would ask you to give him/her a vote out of nowhere, and would be your new virtual bff. Try to vote wisely. :)
You have 15 days to vote which is enough imo, the 5 who got the most votes at the end will be our 5 members.

3. Discipline during the election:
You can ask questions to candidates in this thread. You may not get an answer though, but at least a few people would have read it and later on it might be something to work on for members of this TT board.
Any thoughts on lack of election cleanness should be PMed to me, and if I can't handle with it myself, I will forward it to one of the site moderators. Also, if any of candidates feel harassed, sending me a PM and describing a problem would be the best solution.

It's Time to Vote! :D

I understand that some of the candidates nominated are willing to donate me vcash in exchange for their vote. Is this legal?

Frankly that would suck and be quite low, but there's no way to monitor that.
On the paper your votes can't be bought, but if you get vcash to vote for someone how would we know? :shrug:
Just vote for who you think would be the best for the job.

Ah ok, I didn't know it was possible.
Maybe we could wait the end of the weekend just to see how fast ppl cast their votes, and then change the date if it is necessary. I'll pm you if I think we need it. :p

Who chose the candidates?

Bubba08
Apr 19th, 2008, 08:26 AM
I sent a pm to all the volunteers and to all the people I thought might be interested (hopefully I didn't forget anyone). 10 of them said they were indeed interested and that was it, I made the poll right after.

You realize it will be almost impossible to be at least one up? :lol:

But people are still voting from what I can see, they will vote for a few more days... So we can have hope ;)

It seems I'm so far believed that I would be more sensible board member than some others :eek: :lol:

It really nice that you say it, but maybe they know the game better and I just wonder if I would be able to be as good as the actual "TOP5" :unsure:
If I had chance I would surely do my best, but it's hard if you aren't widely known... :sad:

It's not about being known or not, I post almost everywhere on this site, it's about being hated or not. :p

I just voted - and I'd like to say that it was a tough choice, since I had a hard time narrowing it down to 5. I'm sure that everyone who makes it will do a great job, and I'd like to thank them all in advance for taking the time - and effort - needed to keep TT running :worship:

I didn't PM them to just vote for me :confused:

I write what I would like to improve/change in TT, so that people can know why am I included in the poll :)
I realize this is about voting for friends for some of players :sad: but I would like to make some know what I can do for this game as I am not so well known as others :wavey:
To be honest I see now that I haven't got too much votes, it means not everyone agrees with my ideas... But it's even better if someone doesn't vote if my ideas weren't what he/she needs for this game :angel:

Thanks to those who vote for me, cause they see I can do something here (ideas in PMs were to show it) :worship:

Yeah, but it seems it's not needed for everyone...

I thought it would be only fair to players that choose me, if they know what's my point of view on this game :)

I asked James to change the poll closing date, one week is enough and the sooner we'll have this tt board the better.
So you have till Apr 27th, 2008 to cast your vote, if it's not already done.

If E.DementievaFan votes would be excluded, then we meet a tie :lol:
Me and Aleksz are tied at 5th place (which is the last one for The board) ;)
Please just don't make any extra-voting... It will be too much :angel:

BIG THANKS TO THE ONES, THAT BELIEVED IN ME AND PROVED IT BY THEIR VOTE :)

Bubba08
Apr 27th, 2008, 07:16 AM
Votes of E.Dementieva_FAN didn't count, so in the end we have a tie for the fifth spot:

Chris 84: 39
meelis13: 33
In The Zone: 32
Ruisantos: 31
Aleksz: 27
denjis: 27

საქართველო: 15
hotel: 12
Rik.: 11
Jeronimo: 10

I didn't think about this eventuality, and frankly that's quite annoying.

I'd say you guys should just try to make this work with 6 members, if it doesn't work, well I'll have to do another poll with denjis and Aleksz.

Anyway, thanks to everyone who took part to this poll, voters and participants.
Congrats to the this new 'tt board' (feel free to find a better name :D): Chris 84, meelis13, In The Zone, Ruisantos, Aleksz, and denjis.
Try to get to know each other (if it's not already done) and communicate as much as possible if you want to be efficient, that's my advice.
Now it's time to move your ass, there's some work to do. :)
