Model Of Suicide Thread

Suicide Tennis - Tournament Name

[IMG].[/IMG]


1. Each day of play you must pick 1 winner playing an ATP main draw singles match. The player you choose must be on the tournament OOP for that day.

2. Once you pick someone, you cannot choose them again for the rest of the tournament. So, you don't want to waste your pick on Federer or Nadal to win in early round matches.

3. You must choose one player to win each day. If you forget or are unable to reach a computer, it will be treated as a wrong pick, and you will be out of the tournament. You have to submit your own pick, no one else can submit a pick on your behalf.

4. Each Player shall submit a back-up pick at the same time they submit your main pick. This pick will only be used in the case of a walkover or withdrawal of your main pick, a walkover from your main pick's opponent, or in the case a Lucky Loser replaces your main pick's opponent. Retirements do count as completed matches. If 1 point is played the match will be considered in play and your pick is valid.

Replacement picks must be identified like this:
Back-Up Pick - Nishikori
Make it clear and try to do it all in one post!


5. No commitments are necessary! If you wish to participate, just post your Day 1 pick in the correct time. New players are ALWAYS welcome!

6. Once the order of play is released, it will be added IN THIS THREAD, right below, to facilitate your choices. Each day, this post will be updated with its respective order of play.

NOTE: You can't pick a player from a match scheduled for the previous day and postponed for the next due to rain or darkness! Choose only from the matches posted in the OOP here for the concrete day!

7. Picks will be acceptable until BEFORE the start of the FIRST match each day.

8. The scoring system will be as follows:

Quote:
.
9. Never edit your pick. If you change your mind, you must first "quote" your original pick in a new post and enter your new pick there.

10. This thread is not made to complain about format, points, etc. There's Suicide Suggestions Thread created for that.

If the board goes down as it has happened before, send your picks on my e-mail: .

Re: Model Of Suicide Thread

This thread is made to help the first-time-managers.

The posts above are what the opening posts of a Suicide Tournament Thread should look like.
The easiest way is to quote & copy them.


THE THREAD IS STILL TO BE EDITED TO BE MORE SPECIFIC

1. Each day of play you must pick 1 winner playing an ATP main draw singles match. Of course, the player that you choose is playing one match scheduled to be played that day (as seen on the order of play).

. . .

9. This thread is not made to complain about format, points, etc. There's Suicide Suggestions Thread created for that.

...
The issue about not editing picks came up in the current China Open thread. When I checked, I could find no rule about that in this model.

I'm not sure of the proper wording. I've added it to the China Open. Please advise of the correct wording and/or whether this rule is official. I'm pretty sure I've seen it before, but I couldnt find it in a brief search of other recent games OPs. thanks.

PROPOSED RULE:
Never edit your pick. If you change your mind, you must first "quote" your original pick in a new post and enter your new pick there.

Is it being too pushy to ask for a ruling on this?

Or is there another forum where I should ask the question?

Or should gamers simply make new posts with new picks, and the manager then simply uses the one posted last before match play begins?
