PAW Board for the 2011 Season

PAW Board 2011

We need to urgently clarify the members of the PAW Board for the 2011 season. The current PAW Board members are as follows:-

Current members of the board from 2009:
  • Caio_Brasil - Retired at end of 2010 season RESIGNED
  • -Evita- - Not active in PAW during 2010? RESIGNED
  • Frooty_Bazooty - Still active in PAW Will remain on the Board for 2011
  • greatkingrat - Not active in PAW for the second half of 2010
  • hallso - Retired at end of 2010 season but Will remain on the Board and update the PAW rankings for 2011
  • maldini - Still active in PAW Will remain on the Board for 2011
  • ntorcida - Not active in PAW since early 2010
  • robuś - Still active in PAW Will remain on the Board for 2011
  • sdtoot - Still active in PAW Will remain on the Board for 2011
I will send a pm all the players above to ask whether they still wish to remain on the PAW Board for 2011. In addition to those listed above, I propose that the following managers/players should be included in the PAW Board for 2011:-
  • Aenea - Will join the Board in 2011
  • jrm
  • TankingTheSet - Will retire from the game in 2011
  • Wojtek
If any other PAW Managers/Players wish to join the PAW Board, then please send a pm to sdtoot and you will be considered for inclusion on the new PAW Board for 2011.

Thanks
Shaun

What does it mean being PAW Board memeber?

Re: PAW Board for the 2011 Season

Sorry but i can't join PAW board i just don't have enough time. I can help as manager few weeks during the year.
If hallso quits as ranking manager and noone takes his place i can do ranks. I don't promise it will be updated every week on Monday but it will work

Thanks Greg. It is very kind of you to continue to update the PAW Rankings next year despite now retiring from the game.

We need to ensure that the key PAW administration roles are covered for 2011. These are:-

PAW Management Thread - mmarto193
PAW Rankings - hallso
PAW Monthly Commitments - sdtoot
PAW Wildcards - Aenea
PAW Rules - robuś
PAW Titles History - hallso
PAW History of No.1 Players - Frooty_Bazooty

I think it is best that the above administration roles are shared as much as possible to ensure that the game is not too dependant upon one or two players (who may have to suddenly leave the forum due to illness or unexpected circumstances).

In particular, we urgently need a volunteer to cover the PAW Management thread as soon as possible, with the start of the season only two weeks away.

Any volunteers?

Re: PAW Board for the 2011 Season

I can keep track of the WCs but maybe it would be better if we started this thread through the paw board account so other members have access to the account as well. But I take the responsibility to watch over the WCs.

When I'm good, I'm very good...but when I'm bad, I'm better

Hey thanks mmarto193. I don't see any problem with you looking after the PAW Managers thread for 2011. Please start the thread at your earliest convenience - just follow the similar format to the 2010 Managers thread. It is good to welcome new helpers into the game.

Hi Sylvie, that would be great if you could update the WC thread through 2011. Yes please use the PAW Board account to update post #1 of the thread for 2011. You know the password. Thanks

The manager can then post the picks he/she has received via pm once the final has started or when they are next online.

Sending picks via pm works fine in TT so I don't see it can't work in PAW. In the situation where the PAW manager is in contention for the title coming into the final day, then maybe a PAW board member can be nominated to receive the final days PAW picks via pm.
According to above, I can incorporate the "final pick rule" into The Official PAW Rules, as the new point 5.1, and change the previous 5.1 to 5.2 and then 5.2 to 5.3

5.1 "Final pick rule"

The last pick (on the final day only) can be, but it is not a must, send via pm to the manager of the tournament. If a pick is sent via pm then the player is obliged to post on the PAW thread that his/her final pick has been sent by pm. e.g. PAW13: Sent via pm to Manager. The manager can then post the picks he/she has received via pm once the final has started or when they are next online.
I understand that if a player sends his/her pick via pm, but doesn't post this information on the forum, then his/her pick won't be valid, no matter what.

In hindsight, I think it is probably better to remove the requirement for a player to post on the thread that he/she has sent their final pick by pm. What do others think?
