^ maybe you should get the spreadsheet and update scores on time.
3 more tournaments for me to manage...
OK guys no need for this; I know some people haven't been the best managers and had trouble running events, but let's hope practice makes perfect. As for discouraging less capable managers from signing up, we can consider some penalty, like; if a manager doesn't update scores after at least half of the rounds played during a tournament, he/she cannot commit to run another tournament for the next six months. Or something along those lines. Of course, anyone can ask for help running a tournament in necessary and no one should hesitate from it - helping eachother has always been normal in tipping. But yes, managers should - if possible - tell in advance that they won't be able to run an event or find an assistant.

Can I ask a couple of question? Why does the calender looks different from 2011? Or is it just me? And why are some tournaments missing? Like Pattaya City. And if I commit to the tournaments can I withdraw last minute from it if I'm busy?

Yes;)

Why does the calender looks different from 2011?

Because WTA makes it a little different every year, so our tipping calendar is different too. We always play the biggest event of the week, so if two tournaments are played on the same week, the one of the higher category will be played. If they are of equal category, the moderator chooses which one will be played that week.

Or is it just me?

No, you are fine:)

And why are some tournaments missing?

See above.

Like Pattaya City.

Yup, it's explained there...:D

And if I commit to the tournaments can I withdraw last minute from it if I'm busy?

Yes, but it would be nice if you could notify us at least a few days before the event so that we can find another manager for that tournament.

No problem. It's always wise to choose tournaments to which you can more easily commit because of the time zones, especially if you are new to managing events, but of course it's not a rule.

Yes, during that week it's one of those two events. Whoever signs up first to run an event that week, gets to choose which event we'll play. If you are not sure which to choose you can wait until the player lists are out for example, but if you are, you can choose right now. Anyway, I'll sign you up for that week and you just confirm a few weeks before the event which event it's going to be.
