Re: Ask the board Thread

I'll defer to the rest of the board as I'm not 100% sure but my understanding is that we should not accept picks from a banned player.

More practically if you do, you're guaranteeing a walkover in the next round as that player cant make any future picks.

Re: Ask the board Thread

I also see it as the picks cannot be accepted if the player is banned.

I would assume that the reason the player sent by E mail was because he was banned and couldn't log onto his account?

Re: Ask the board Thread

My situation, my partner had sent to me, I was managing, deadline was past when I was posting diffs then noticed he got banned. I was told it was okay to accept his picks..

I think if someone gets banned and then they send picks, that shouldn't count.

Which team AdeyC plays in? Or how do we know he even wants to play Doubles?

Why do you need to complicate things? Since any player has to commit by himself for Singles anyway, would it be hard for him to confirm a Doubles team to spare the manager to send PMs or Ask the Board what should be done in situations like those I presented?

I, for sure, won't admit any not-confirmed team. If i see there are such situations I'll send PMs to managers or announce them on thread, but under no circumstances will accept not-confirmed teams in the Draw. Why should real teams miss the Draw because of the possilble false teams? If the Board feel I break any rules by being so strict, just let me know and we'll see how can be solvved this situation.
1 - In this situation AdeyC has committed traddles/AdeyC as a team. It should be picked up from entry lists that a player was in two events at the same time if one of them also committed somewhere else.

2 - In this situation traddles has committed traddles/AdeyC as a team first

If Marto then said Marto/AdeyC – if it wasn’t noticed straight away the Manager would notice this while doing their Entry Lists and then point out to Marto that AdeyC is already committed with traddles in an earlier post.

Or if AdeyC entered and said just ‘In’ – at that point he would still have been committed into doubles by traddles. If he said 'In with .......' and it wasn't noticed straight away by AdeyC or his planned partner that someone else had committed in with him, the Manager would then notice this at the time he prepares the entry list.

This was something that was voted on by players to keep the rule as one person committing the teams.

Re: Ask the board Thread

Still very strange rule for me. I hope i won't have problems with this kind of situation, but I 'll ask for confirmation if there will be the case.

I wonder, if there is this rule, why (almost) all teams are confirmed?

Re: Ask the board Thread

Question: I put nicksimioni by accident in both the qualifying draw and the maindraw. 2 players already had a bye in qualification and no alts are available. He didn't send for qualification of course. Do I leave the draw as it is, or do I rearrange the draw so that the 3rd seed will get a bye as well?

I think it can definitely count but you may want to remind them that's not how we send picks - too much information for the other player
