Re: 2013 FITD Manager Thread | Managers, sign up for January tournaments!!!

Hmm, I responded to luke's PM to me. I actually sent PM's to him last week for Sao Paolo and received nothing back. It is just a maturity thing really. Thankyou all for supporting my action in providing the update. I think I missed any attack, was it deleted?

As I have indicated to Luke, managing isn't just about setting up a thread. He hadn't asked for any assistance as far as I'm aware, didn't reply to my messages to assist last week for Sao Paolo and made no apology for the lack of updates and very late final update. But thankyou for providing the final update.

Luke, Define the word MANAGER. We don't mind not having daily updates... but to not say anything in the thread about when you might make an update and to not even put the draw up in the first post is unacceptable.

It turned out that the spaces were actually "non-breaking" spaces; to remove these you have to enter ALT+0160 (using numpad) into the find bar instead of just a normal space. Might be good to know if anyone is having trouble getting rid of spaces.
OH, really! I didn't realise. I use OpenOffice, so maybe an issue for MS Excel conversion... Any idea on how I might fix that? Maybe I should write that in...

The only problem removing all spaces for me is then remembering to not place a space in names like Ramirez Hidalgo if he wins. (I dont know if I noted that in the instructions.)

I ran Sao Paulo, you got the standings for that. You want me to apologize? Not going to happen. It's a game. Real life comes before a game. Very late final update? Tournament finishes Sunday, I updated final standings Monday. How terribly late

Sao Paulo - You got updates = managed. Buenos Aires - no draw - go to atpworldtour.com - simple - no updates - didn't give me a chance before hijacking - round 1 & 2 results won't have a massive impact on final standings. As I've said in a PM, the game is all yours now.

Hmm, I can't be the only one who has been using MS Excel...maybe it depends on which browser you use (I'm using Chrome.) There's probably no need to put it in the instructions though, unless it's a more widespread problem than it appears to be.

Perhaps that post can just serve as a reference for anyone who is having trouble removing spaces in the future. Alternatively we could make an FAQ thread for managers of some kind if we come up with a list of similar issues.

Congrats Djokovic on winning 2016 French Open and becoming the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to win 4 consecutive majors!

I'll take Casablanca and Barcelona if not already taken.

EDIT: they were taken months back! I'll pick up some in May if managers are needed.

It's ok if you take tournaments long before they start, but just keep in mind: if something happens meanwhile and you don't have time to manage, just announce before and we'll find someone else... It's not important how many tournaments you manage, but how you do it.
