Re: Opening post thread - for tournament managers only!

When it comes to the quoting problem I'd say we make it official that quoting to change your picks is not allowed and that instead a player can only do it by sending a simple message like:

"Please change: X instead of Y." ("thanks" is optional)

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.

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).

Please add the quoting rule to the 1st page

Thanks

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.

Re: Opening post thread - for tournament managers only!

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.

Re: Opening post thread - for tournament managers only!

I think it would be enough to make the changes and the original picks invalid (as a penalty)

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

I was just reacting to this

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

Re: Opening post thread - for tournament managers only!

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