Yes, I thought you were refering to that one. I haven't officially changed it, but I don't think that anyone would object if we would change it into "has to be confirmed by all committed members of the team".

Also, what I wrote in the previous post would be interesting and I don't think people would mind - if you don't commit for three consecutive FC weekends, that's an automatic disqualification.

For this weekend I'll only change the first one (the one that you mention) and explain everything at the start of the thread; I really don't think anyone will mind this.

Thread will probably be opened tomorrow (or Wednesday at the latest).

Technically you should sign-up in a new thread (cause this is a thread for the 1st FC weekend that we played in February) which will be open in a day or two. In order to join the team other members of that team have to accept you, so if they don't mind you can join their team.

No...what rules? About the points? I've always calculated that way. If only 2/3 team members play on a given day I would divide their points with 2. If, on the next day, all three show up I'll divide their points by 3. Unless you are talking about something else...?

BTW, I'm considering suggesting another rule - that a player who has missed three consecutive FC weekends be disqualified from the team. Reason for that - people stop coming to the forum and we can't rely on their "yes" so that someone new could join the team.

Oh, I didn't understand you correctly, sorry about that. Don't worry, as...the total number of points earned by a team on a given day is divided by the number of players that played for the team that day. It's all in the rules, but maybe not written clear enough. I'll look into it.

come on lena

Of course, if circumstances change you are both welcome to play anyway
