You can start committing now. :wavey:

Deadline for Designers' commitments is Sunday, but new Judges can join us all the way till May 31st, also Sunday. :)


Also, I've worked out a deal with the TT manager, and we'll be having a mini-contest for the RG banner to be displayed in the TT thread. :dance:
I'll work out the details with him, and post how it'll go soon. :)

psichogauchovna and xohxmyx, welcome to the game. :) :hug:

Poiree, so sorry to hear you won't be having the time. :( Happy to see you'll still be judging though. :yeah:

kai, Martin, Rita - welcome back! :D :hug:

I'm in too, of course. :D

I have been a baaaad manager so far :o and haven't had enough time to really sort this tourny out, send out reminders and so on, so I'll be extending the deadline until WEDNESDAY, and we'll start playing from the 1/8s most probably.

When I organize everything, I'll also send out reminders for the Task Pool Tasks to everyone.

Everything will be updated by Wednesday, and play will start at the end of this week, I hope we have a fun tournament! :bounce:

Medina and Julio, great to see you playing again. :) Can't wait to see your designs. :D
I love your sig, Julio. :rolls:

The GMT Draw will be out on Friday. I hope we can get at least one more designer by then to make it 8. :unsure:

Also, I'll be taking Tasks suggestions for the Task Pool now, so if you have any interesting, original ideas, please send them to me by PM. Essentially, just one from each judge will be enough, but you can send as many as you like, and we'll chose the most interesting ones for the Pool. :)
Just remember that the Task has to be connected with Roland Garros 2009 in some way.

:wavey: Are designers judged on stuff like concept or is it more technical?

:wavey: Are designers judged on stuff like concept or is it more technical?

:wavey: Tangy.

Each Design is judged in three categories.

1) Task Grade - how much the design hits or misses the subject(Task) given. (it's pretty straightforward if you're just doing a player graphic, but some of the more complex tasks can be quite challenging :) (such as "Italian Tennis Mafia" :scared: ))
2) Technical Grade - the skill with which the design was executed, pretty self-explanatory basically
3) Overall Grade - this one can be entirely subjective, just how much you like the graphic altogether, based on whichever criteria you feel like using


Each design is given 3 grades, for each of the 3 categories, on a scale of 1 to 5.
Approximate values:
1 - basic
2 - sufficient
3 - pretty good
4 - advanced
5 - perfecto :D

Ask whatever else you're not clear on! ;)

Hey NeverSayDie and Tangy, great to see you playing with us. :dance:

I'm still waiting for Linda to confirm if she'll be playing as a designer or not :ras:, so I'm running late with the OOP and everything.

The Play thread will be up with all the info by the end of Roger's match today. :wavey:

First round deadline is Monday 4PM CET. You have time to sober up. :p
Look for updates when you come home. ;)

In as designer. But if it fucks up the draw making an odd number of players, then I'll just be a judge.
