How should be the pick style?

I decide to open a poll regarding pick style. Recently, Mens Clay Court proposed a new style of picking (bolding the player name) instead the traditional way of writing down the last name or full name of the picked player.
PYW exists because there are people who picks players in PYW matches.
If we run the game the way we think it should be, then soon or later players who does not agree will stop playing.
So please vote.

Re: How should be the pick style?

I would use the new way if the majority prefers to, but I really prefer the traditional way.

I also fear that statements like "These picks will not be counted" might be the end of PYW again

Re: How should be the pick style?

I don't like the bolding, it's a pain in the ass, maybe it's less work for the managers but it's more work for the voters, discourages me from voting cuz I just wanna go through and write a few names, not all this copy and pasting and formatting shit.

Re: How should be the pick style?

You guys all think that the easy way is just writing down players name. Actually, its not. I did the bold way(for the 1st time ever last week) and it surprisingly seemed easier than the traditional way. Try both ways before you vote!

Bolding is actually faster how about trying it. All you do is highlight and bold. If you delete the losing player, then usually the next line under it goes up one and that becomes more of a pain. Jerk

Re: How should be the pick style?

Why can't the voters just choose whatever suits them?

I have tried it, I've been doing it diligently since this whole thing started, it's still a pain in the ass for me.

What's with the fucking name calling? I was just giving my opinion, but sounds like you don't want to hear it, so why bother asking anyone. dickhead

there are people saying they will not count votes if they aren't in the way he wants to. this is way i decided to open the poll. after this, all picks will be considered in the style won and there won't be a reason for not considering the picks by me and the others managers.
but in the tourneys i'm managing i'll consider all picks, no matter how it's posted as long as I can understand it.
