I should be fine to do Beijing.

Is it possible someone can take over Esperance? :awww:

I wasn't expecting to get so much holiday homework.

valac222
Sep 28th, 2012, 07:30 AM
^^^ Antalya will most probably be cancelled. But you might cancel Esperance and move the players to Antalya. Just an idea.

joe87
Sep 28th, 2012, 05:41 PM
Yeah, better than nothing ;) I think we should do that if nobody takes over in the next few hours.

valac222
Sep 28th, 2012, 07:01 PM
^^ Just realized it is west Australia so 6 hours diff. I can do Esperance but diffs will be 3-4-5 hours late. You decide.

joe87
Sep 28th, 2012, 09:49 PM
Then of course Esperence would be better ;)

valac222
Sep 28th, 2012, 10:29 PM
Can (should) I cancel Antalya? 3 or 4 entrants so far.

I saw that. But I think it's still better to have all those Antalya's as they usually have livescores and publish OOPs ;)

Meelis
Sep 29th, 2012, 10:09 AM
Well, South Africa is part of the Tennis-Ticker network. So there should be live scores.

These Indian and possibly Bangkok tournaments are much more dubious.

joe87
Sep 29th, 2012, 10:18 AM
Didn't know about the thing with South Africa. I will exchange it with those Bangkok's then :yeah:

There are some 10Ks in Croatia too and I see that for example 10K Solin already ahs OOP published for tomorow.
Maybe those could also be put? Meelis knows better if they get their results published by the end of day. :p

If it is that urgent then some should open it , rvugt can take over the thread later. If not then do not complain.

I think we should wait for those few hours...

No one complained in the past weeks when threads were opened at the same time or later :)

*Jean*
Oct 9th, 2012, 07:10 AM
I opened a commitment thread, the tournament starts on Saturday morning, it would be high time for us to commit. It's a Premier that will be decisive for the Masters, maybe someone more reliable than Ruben could take over?

I agree with Shaun - for the last event prior to the Year Ends it was terrible - with picks originally going to be accepted and then the draw going to be made by the manager after he's received picks.

We have 131 players this week, so those 2 tournaments per week in December will definitly not enough. There would be enough other 10K-tournaments but I'm quite sure that we could get troubles to find OOPs or even draws.

Last year we've extended the draws to 64 MD's. What would you like more? A third tournament or two tournaments and one of them with a 64MD/32QD?

Tournaments could be like this:
$10,000 BANGKOK, THA 03 Dec - 09 Dec 2012
$10,000 BANGKOK, THA 10 Dec - 16 Dec 2012
$10,000 DJIBOUTI, DJI 17 Dec - 23 Dec 2012
$10,000 ST. PETERSBURG 24 Dec - 30 Dec 2012

goOudinUSA
Nov 5th, 2012, 08:29 PM
I like the 64 MD/32 QD idea! Are there any European tournaments-since you can find info on tenniseurope. I also am worried about my management in Santiago, CHI. I'm not sure if I can find OOP and draws. If I can't should I make the tournament a 10k that all info is updated? Thanks!

I like the 64 MD/32 QD idea! Are there any European tournaments-since you can find info on tenniseurope. I also am worried about my management in Santiago, CHI. I'm not sure if I can find OOP and draws. If I can't should I make the tournament a 10k that all info is updated? Thanks!

if you cant manage 25K in santiago.. tell me ! i can, i go all the days to see the match and know the OOP and draws.. :)

I'm sure I'll still do it, but it might be a problem getting the OOP. If you could help me with the OOP if I can't find it, then that would be very helpful! Thanks!!:worship:

Well if we don't find a manager, it's still better to get one even if the diffs are posted late. ;)

I think it's better for you to start as an assistent, as it seems you have no clue about managing.
And without computer managing in TT is nearly impossible, you would have to invest hourS each day. :lol:

I will do 47c 19 Nov Antalya (3) TUR 10K 32/16/16/8. I will find time, since we need a manager. Play seems to start around 9:30am local time and that will be around 2:30am(my time). Can I have someone to accept diffs also, if I am not able to post diffs? Thanks!

There is no problem with posting diffs late. ;) Or do you mean you can't post them for a whole day? :scratch:

I think it will be okay, because play usually begins at 1 or 2 AM(my time) if this tournament is like the others in Turkey. I will sacrifice a few hours of sleep.:)

It must not be very fun to run tournaments if there are so few volunteers that crappy managers are allowed to run tournaments. (Not Ondrej, of course--he is one of the best!)

thanks.

I'm sorry that you expect perfection from a new manager, as this is only my 4th tournament.
Joe87, if my managing sucks, then please tell me and I'll quit.

I try my very best, and yes this week has been horrible. So I guess this tournament will be my last...

I'm not saying that this week has gone good.
I can't help when someone passes away...and I'm at their funeral.

I feel with my other 3 tournaments -Rock Hill, Saguenay, and Antalya- have gone well.

I have class all week, and that postpones diffs. You wonder why I manage then? I do it because I enjoy it and we need more managers, so I started.

I'm truly sorry that Santiago has gone horrible.

joe87
Nov 28th, 2012, 06:55 AM
There is no problem with your managing as long as you are able to correct your mistakes, and you did as i just saw :)

You also can manage as much as you want in the future. ;)

Those people who moan about managers should really stop now, they already screw buji and valac222 and soon we will completely run out of managers if it goes on like that :rolleyes: managers are also humans and can mistakes...

We have 131 players this week, so those 2 tournaments per week in December will definitly not enough. There would be enough other 10K-tournaments but I'm quite sure that we could get troubles to find OOPs or even draws.

Last year we've extended the draws to 64 MD's. What would you like more? A third tournament or two tournaments and one of them with a 64MD/32QD?

Tournaments could be like this:
$10,000 BANGKOK, THA 03 Dec - 09 Dec 2012
$10,000 BANGKOK, THA 10 Dec - 16 Dec 2012
$10,000 DJIBOUTI, DJI 17 Dec - 23 Dec 2012
$10,000 ST. PETERSBURG 24 Dec - 30 Dec 2012

Actually, this week Potchefstroom is full MD, Antalya will have alts to QD which is a bit stupid?, strange?. I cannot see the reason why some people forced to played qd for a challenger or even be alt when there is an easy solution. IMO TOP 30 rule cannot be an excuse.

valac222
Nov 30th, 2012, 09:59 PM
That was my opinion on TOP 30 rule :D

I voted for the new rule. Anyhow, this is a bit senseless. Majority of the scenarios are around three cases:

-Top 30 forgot to commit to WTA, but still inside ITF deadline. (Actually this is why I voted for the new rule)
-Slams 2nd week. They should be allowed to play.
-Off-season. Joe will anyhow extend the main draw for 64 and then it is not a problem. I would rather suggest to stop qualifying in off-season and announce by default 64MD for all tourneys.
