The Board are currently collating all the opinions raised in this thread on each point and polls will be raised for the areas where it appears change might be required.
Can I please enquire as to how it’s decided upon which area is chosen for change? eg. the most people to mention the same point or something?
This thread is used as a discussion thread for anything that people might want changing in the game. It is used to put forward proposals, ideas and suggestions which people can debate and as a way of finding out if a particular idea has any support within the TT community or to discuss arguments for and against any particular ideas. The last few years this thread has been a lot quieter than the first few years and we (the board) are currently discussing whether this is because most of the major flaws have been ironed out and there’s not many major changes required or whether because the Board is a lot quieter in the off-season now and whether we should be looking at opening the thread earlier during the season with any changes still implemented the following season.
Why isn’t this put in the first post to start with?. A lot of these things are geared to people who know what’s what – for those of us who don’t it’s a struggle to get information, hence numerous posts as the above asking these questions. The full info put in post one like with a TT event would stop creating confusion and would make things clear to all and sundry.
It’s the same thing with TT managing – it’s an ordeal to get the info whereas if you have a simple first posting any newcomer or potential volunteer can see the procedures. You (not you personally but as a group
) are struggling for volunteers yet you seem to do very little to make it clear for potential newcomers to find out information.
I mean I’ve done that idiot guide to try and make things 100% clear for any future volunteers who can see step by step what to do - which seems to be more the biggest ever leap forward on this issue as far as I can see, I just cannot understand why for the life of me nobody has not even thought of doing that in however many years TT’s been going. I have been more than happy to do it off my own back to put something back into a game I love but surely it shouldn’t really have come to a quiet newcomer (OK OK occasionally mouthy
) like me who’s only bothered to participate in anything other than sending picks for TT a very short time ago to decide to do that over endless people around with joint countless years more ‘experience’ of playing/hosting the game – why’s it not been made easier and more welcoming for new volunteers in the past??
There’s even a thread somewhere where there’s a discussion over what constitutes foul language. Surely every one of us knows what constitutes bad language. Whilst of course there has to be rules for a game that are stuck to 100%, does an atmosphere of rules rules rules entice people over what should be fun fun fun?
Also, I think it’d be nice to know what ‘The Board’ does, eg who you all are, what your aims are, what you do, etc, etc, rather than just appear as the mythical name ‘The Board’. I’m sure there’s a lot of people who haven’t had personal dealings with you who wouldn’t have any idea.
Just a few more issues for the melting pot
