I didnt know that was a rule that you couldnt pick again if someone wasnt seeded, its Always Hingis's rule not mine, im not too sure what to do about it, how bout after this tournament that rule is gone but what does everyone else think we should do about this tournie

No, no, no ... rule has ALWAYS been that you can only re-do the draw if the seeded player withdraws!!!

If you want new rules please state that so others are aware of too!

Season is coming to an end - it's smart to make your prediction as late as possible to avoid nasty w.o.!

Well that rule should definitely be changed. It is extremely unfair and what if I had picked Chakvetadze to win the tourney, after such a good week last week?? That's stupid.

"4) If a player withdraws after you have made your prediction, you MAY ONLY alter your pick if the withdrawing player was seeded. However, if the player who withdrew is not a seed, you may not replace."

Maybe you should read your own posts then.

That's the risk you take when you pick an unseeded player to win. Picking a player who is likely to withdraw to win...THAT's what's stupid.

That's why I always fill in the draw the last minute I can... Simply don't fill in the draw the same day as the draw was made

alwayshingis, Chakvetadze didn't look injured and is on a high, and so it wouldn't be stupid at all to pick her.

This rule should be changed IMO but if I am the only one who feels this way then I can handle it.

I suppose I'll just have to make my picks minutes before the deadline next time.

Wow, I didn't realize how vulgar this game could get!

It's the end of the season, there are only a few tournements left. Because of this, we should keep the same rules until the end of the year, then modify and POST the new rules. With the collaboration of lenavee, alwayshingis and I, along with all the other posters' opinions, we can change this game up for next year!

A civilised post. It is fine with me to wait until next year, it's just that lenavee didn't even know about the rule, made a new batch of predictions with Chakvetadze's withdrawal, and is now going back on that.

I didn't mean to cause a whole thing though.

I must agree that the chief of this game should indeed know his own rules. Mistakes happen, and I'm sure that lenavee will discredit all new posts regarding Chakvetadze's withdrawl.

and its not my fault iv only been runnig the game for a few tournaments amybe you should spend some time scoring the game, its not easy and people getting bitchy about it makes it much harder and btw your the only one who is being uncivil and aggressive

Seriously, it's only a game - it shouldn't get like this.

I think it's important to appreciate the work that alwayshingis and lenavee have done to run the game each week and understand that they don't have to do it... I'm sure suggestions to improve the game will always be considered but there are better ways to make them than by being nasty about it, everyone makes mistakes, this sort of thing could discourage lenavee from running future tournaments. The vast majority of people do appreciate it though - it gives us a bit of fun each week so thanks very much for that

As for changing the rules, I agree with hotwine8 - the current rules should stand until the end of the year. For next year I'd like to see players being allowed to change picks until the first main draw match begins, regardless of whether there are withdrawals. However, I wouldn't expect that to happen if it would make running the game more difficult.
