I suggest that a Code be drafted in the next week or two, preferably by a board member, but I would be prepared to do it if given the necessary authority.

The Code would then be published in a new thread, and everybody could give their ideas for objections, amendments and additions over a period of say 4 weeks.

A Final Draft would then be voted on, ready to be incorporated into TT for the start of the 2011 season.

I hope that nobody thinks that this is just an over-reaction to one particular player. He is just the worst example of something that happens far too frequently.
I like your proposal and would be happy for you to come up with an initial draft

A draft has been sent to Gav, and if he approves it will be published in a new thread for general comment.

This thread is now closed, and thanks to everyone who contributed.

Well the player he abused who we all supported had a small go at me today in a FITD thread - certainly nowhere near the level Federers Mate achieved in his epic rant, but still done in a manner I did not appreciate considering he should understand better than anyone else that first time managers make mistakes (especially when they have a wife fighting the flu and a full time job...)

Yeah, it was probably a valid suggestion/criticism, but I wouldn't have appreciated the eye-roll either. I don't think it was meant in a bad way, though. Sometimes those smileys don't help.

haha, I wouldn't put too much into the eye roll, he puts that after everyone of his posts, I'm pretty sure he doesn't know what it means, because most of the time it's totally out of context, so don't read much into it

Re: Does TT need a Code of Conduct? Please read new post

I agree, sick of this whack job. I think more complaints to the board will be enough to have him suspended. This is by no means the first time, at least a monthly occurrence. See Paris for instance when thinking she was bumped to an ALT position. BAN I SAY!

TT board should have banned this player from the game years ago or done something instead they gave the blind eye and even praised bullism calling it "good for the game" , "fun" and even giving tournaments to manage (big and important ones). Do you honestly expect, people, this TT board to grow some balls all of a sudden and create an efficient code of conduct?

I wish they did, but I dont live in wonderland

Nothing is likely to be done here.. cos this board is like MTF, not perfect, made by humans and of course, this is a hobbie.. so i suggest relaxing a bit and not taking things too seriously when it comes to these clowns who always want to ruin the game

Re: Does TT need a Code of Conduct? Please read new post

The Draft Code of Conduct is now ready for publication and will be uploaded to a new thread in the next few hours.

Unfortunately it has taken longer than expected, but there has been considerable discussion by the board, and we hope that this code will meet with (almost) universal approval.

Comments will be welcome, but the Code is to be voted on as a package, not item by item.

There will be one week for voting.
