A proposal for November 2007 [It's that time of the year again!]

This week has been absolute madness in General Messages. The confusion about the Madrid groups reached unprecedented heights, fueled by yet another cockup from the WTA.

This could be avoided.

As you might know, two years ago I made an Excel sheet for the group system of the YEC.
I am 100% certain it works according to WTA rules which has been proven again this year.
Furthermore, I believe I am able to answer all scenario questions based on it.

Here's my proposal: Let's have an Official YEC Thread that is stickied on top of General Messages, and assign one person to manage it.

I would volunteer for that job, since I am pretty sure that after spending so much time to construct this friggen Excel sheet, I am an expert on the subject.

Thoughts?

Re: A proposal for November 2007

Good idea

We only had about 15 threads all contradicting each other "Martina Out" "Martina Qualifies" "Martina Scenarios" "Can Martina Qualify for Semis?"

So many threads like those above

NICOLE VAIDISOVA

Dokic - Hantuchova - Zakopalova - Minella - Szavay - Bammer - Safarova
Stanciute - Panova - Gubacsi - Cibulkova - Cirstea - Hofmanova - Cetkovska

Tennace, I can conclusively say that Martina Hingis is retired and so is definately out

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Yes and threads for every single Davenport blog entry instead of having it all in one thread.

GM gets too messy at times.

No.

Re: A proposal for November 2007

Excellent idea!

The chaos surrounding the lasts spots was so annoying. Each rules has been repeadted over 100 times and still people were asking stuff like "Who will Qualify : Maria or Daniela".

What annoys me the most is the fact that GM in MTF works quite fine, but here people are just too stupid to keep discussion about one topic in one thread. I wonder whether retards are by nature more attracted to womens tennis. I just don't get it.

Hell no, they always go off topiic. However, the arguing isn't as petty as it is here...

Re: A proposal for November 2007 [It's that time of the year again!]

I will make another YEC thread in General Messages today, it would be nice if someone could sticky it.

Also, in contrast to last year my Excel file will actually work for most people.
