I didn't see anyone panicking, artificially or otherwise :shrug: I just wanted confirmation because it wouldn't be the first time there was a missing difference or some other mix-up. It's pretty standard stuff, I still don't understand why you got so mad.

On a different subject, it's a sad news but we lost the doubles :sad: Good picking by our opponents :yeah:

To me it's setting panic among players, "I don't know if I won! I think I maybe won!", "Where is the manager?" etc. - posting it here, or sending me PMs and demanding me to be online at their wish (they know who they are). Other managers also should be more assertive; no wonder there are problems with filling in the schedule (despite using your spreadsheet) while in the past managers were battling for running tournaments.

But as a whole I think players in Toronto were really hmm, obedient and positive.

At least no fights like in other tournaments when a manager dared to post the differences half an hour too late :lol:

Hey, I've got a right to wonder if I have won until the manager posts the results. I didn't whine about late differences or anything, I was just gently reminding you that some people were still waiting for yesterday's results. How is that not appropriate? When it's been many hours since play ended? :confused:

I still think from the differences that were posted, everyone could count their score.

Everything else was handled by PM :wavey:

Good news for all the players - tomorrow at 8 a.m. I am not at the office but up for a volleyball match so all your results (and finally - AWARDS for 2 days!) will emerge right after (I expect easy 3-0 for Poland :) ) G'night.

Someone please post the OOP :wavey:

Dammit, after fixing the popularity contest for Genci I hoped I could fix this one for Christian :p but this time I failed! But 2 finals are not that bad either, many points.

Congrats to Alex :worship: Jeff and Duncan :yeah: (4th title? wow if Brazil only had such players in tennis)

Thanks to all for the nice words; eventually I thought I'd have more time to run this event but it was finished without any major fail and this is what counts :o See ya next time :)
