I really understand the reason behind all your strict rules and everything, but it was my first time playing, and it really made a huge impact, enough to not ever try playing again.

Thanks but no thanks, see around the "serious" part of MTF.

Games are games because of rules. And if players want to play the game, they first have to read the rules.

And this game has been going for more than 5 years, Slasher1985. And it has survived to all those 'strict rules' and many new players have continued playing after making the same you did.

Give it a chance, pal, you'll like it.

Re: Fill-In-The-Draw (FITD) Roland Garros| No more picks!

Dear sfar, it's actually the psychology of these events that trouble me.

The game has enough players, so it doesn't matter if a new guy does not feel welcome and does not play the game. The game doesn't need new players. There is no forgiveness.

Yeah, some may have returned to play because I do agree, the game is fun, but since I have always been welcoming to everyone asking me questions in my threads and never punished anyone's first mistake, I don't think my place would be here, because it's extremely unfair.

Great start for me. Aiming for 1st FITD title, but it will be very tough because I always screw my result with latter rounds picks

You know, there have been some problems other times with picks not sent correctly (spaces between rounds and/or players, misspelled names, etc.), specially in Grand Slams where there is such a big amount of rounds. And to avoid this, it was agreed that picks sent in an uncorrect format would not be accepted.

Maybe for you as an Excel expert or even for me (I'm good with formatting texts with Notepad++), this wouldn't have been a major problem. But not everyone is an expert at doing this or does not have the time to find out what's right or wrong in a set of picks.

New players are always welcome, but as a new player you MUST read the rules before playing. I've been playing the game for a long time and I don't need to read them anymore, but I did the first time.

I really hope you give it a try after RG.

I just realised I'm also out of the game because of the space problem. To be honest, I just read the first post and assumed it was exactly the same as in Tennisforums (where actually spaces are allowed). My bad. In any case, I subscribe everything that Slasher1985 wrote.

I talked with DjokerFan3 about correcting picks and including the draws of Gandalf and Slasher1985, he said that it will be my decision and I don't like to avoid picks, I will include your picks but try to don't have this mistakes in the future
