Starting All Events on Monday

There are some events where starting on Monday makes no sense. The rule was put in place to avoid the 1 or 2 match Sunday starts we sometimes have but it has lead to first rounds being totally left out, and confusion on when to start when an event starts before Sunday like the current Olympics

Which events in the poll do you think should start on a day other than Monday?

Or do you think there should be some sort of is there's 5 matches or more then it starts then rule?

I meant to make the poll so you could vote for more than 1 thing but I didn't, oops, can a mod or something change that? Can I change that?

Re: Starting All Events on Monday

I think IW, Miami, RG, and the Olympics should always start the day the event starts, there are more than enough matches. I also think if there are 5 matches or more then we could start as well, but not too many more events start Sunday with 5 or more matches besides Winston Salem. I haven't voted yet because I messed up the poll

What do you think?

Re: Starting All Events on Monday

yeah, you did mess up the poll

i think olympics, miami, iw and all slams should start on the day that the tournament starts. in general i'd say that monday starts for all other tournaments makes sense.

Re: Starting All Events on Monday

I would start IW, Miami, RG and the Olympics on the same day as the actual tournament.
All other tournaments should be started on Monday.

Re: Starting All Events on Monday

Actually, IW, Miami and Olympics. I don't see a point in starting for RG early, as that is the same as other tournaments that start on sunday!

Re: Starting All Events on Monday

Certainly, the best version such:
Always in day of the beginning of tournament excepting one or two matches from main draw in the first day
It has only one lack - has often begun it is necessary on a weekend.
Therefore a compromise version (from Cava):
Always Monday except Miami and IW
(We neglect the first round of some tournaments)

Hi 156mphserve !

Whether you consider as a member of board? If yes, I shall address to you at difficulties in management.

When there is no board, the manager feels as in vacuum

Re: Starting All Events on Monday

I would suggest starting on Day 1 of each tournament, if there are at least 5 matches scheduled.

I am a member of the board that was elected 3 years ago. We have rarely been used so many have forgotten.

Bya all means if you have a question while managing you can PM me(or any other board member, CoolyBri posted them in the manager thread a couple days ago I think) and ask, if I can help I will
