Thanks for running this, but you're jumping to a wrong conclusion. Bibi set things up nicely for the first Fed Cup week, then didn't show up. If he did participation would have been at least doubled (if not tripled) compared to what we had here. I have no doubt that after that last minute cancellation a lot of people - our entire team sadly included - didn't even bother to check if there was something going on last week.

Please, inform me, what do you mean by the "regular format?" PAW is exactly the same as it has always been, except for this week. Fed Cup has not been played for a few years, and someone (not me) wanted to bring it back. This was the way they had originally designed it to be played, I'm simply stepping in and running it for them.

If you would just take a few minutes to read my posts explaining the 2 threads, then ask any questions you have, I will gladly try my hardest to explain to you what is going on. And, if you still don't understand it, I'm sorry. But, this is one week, one tournament, and it does not even count towards your ranking. PAW Fed Cup is just for fun, but complaining ruins it, especially when I've tried my damndest to run this tournament, study for finals, do my homework, go to school, AND clean out a mold infested basement.

Sometimes I think people don't understand just how long it takes to run a tournament. I spend no fewer than 4 hours A DAY on my computer calculating points, entering picks, going through the thread, etc. Believe me, we realize how much a mess things have been lately. And by we, I mean myself and everyone else involved in the organization of PAW. WE REALIZE PAW IS STRUGGLING! However, aside from one person spending hours every single day running touranments, doing rankings, doing commitments; the problem will not be fixed anytime soon. We are trying our best to get people to run tournaments, get the rankings done, and get PAW running smoothly, but I'm beginning to think it is an impossible task, ESPECIALLY when people keep reminding us of just how poorly things have been running lately.
