Updated with a new bonus point distribution - sorry for a slight delay.

I edited the opening post today to include the change to 16 best results from 15 that previously formed the rankings.

Ah, yes, that makes more sense. Sure, it's an interesting idea if it comes to penalties, but for now let's leave that alone.

I was just reacting to this

Not counting the original picks would be the easiest penalty (if we decide to penalize quoting)

Maybe, but isn't this easier for the manager (not even making records of the changes if they are made by quoting)?

Done!

I also erased an extra word from "before the scheduled start of the that match", which is something we agreed upon quite some time ago. Now it's beyond clear by what time should the picks be sent.

I'll do so now, but for the time being I'll just state that posts containing quotes of earlier picks will make all the changes invalid. In the future we might consider some penalties, but I wouldn't rush with that, because we get new players very often in tipping, and in many cases they're not on level terms even with the standard rules, let alone with recently changed ones.

I'll edit the tie-breaker part today, but I will leave a bit more time for people to get used to the quoting rule and change that after RG. Not that people read rules anyway so it's no biggy (anyone who has ever managed an event can testify that people don't-read-the-written-rules).

People were doing it that way for a long time and now suddenly they're all quoting without any reason (or is there some...).

And I think we really need to change the tie-breaker rule as suggested in post #13 of this thread.

No opposition here.

Although i would think to ask "please" and "thanks" for mandatory words in those posta. otherwise immediate disqualification.

Re: Opening post thread - for tournament managers only!

Another easier solution is to declare that a quoted post is not enough for posting.
We can accept quotations, but all the poster has to post all his picks again, in his new post, not via quoted.
I also think that a deleted post should show something to the moderator.
