Okay, checking the code of conduct, which is the guideline that is already there, tells me this:
Tzar has a point:
2.9 The manager will publish the OOPs as soon as possible, and will attempt to give a window of at least 12 hours for the players to send picks.
As it wasn't 12 hours, he could have changed something. But on the other hand, he did post it as soon as possible, which if according to the code. So maybe, if we want we should mention what a manager would have to do when the OOP is published later.
3.4 Players may request OOPs, differences or results before the deadlines mentioned in this code, but must do so politely.
3.7 Players must not personally abuse the manager, their opponents or any fellow player.
To me, his behavior in the thread wasn't polite at all. But well, see for yourself in the following post!
You're such a joke l_mac, how could you go through with that OOP, with a 7 hour window, when most people in the US, and america were sleeping. Bullshit. Over 10 players didn't send, you're such a joke, like really?
I would say, what should happen! First time. This is what the code should be used for! Having a general guideline in this!
3.11 For an infraction of the code the player will be reported to the TT board and suspended from the current tournament. Provided 3 board members approve, he will be expelled from the current tournament and his opponent given a walkover. The player may continue to send picks while his suspension is considered.
3.13 For a second serious offence, the player will be banned for a period of four weeks from the end of the current tournament. A third offence will receive a ban of 13 weeks, and a fourth a lifetime ban. A lifetime ban would require the assent of 4 board members rather than 3. Punishments may be reduced at the Board's discretion if there are extenuating circumstances.
