supertom I disagree. I usually don t like when picks are sent without OOP.
No need of OOP in that case.

I was online yesterday but I cannot post the OOP there every night.

Honestly less than 8 hours, independently of the time schedule, it s not possible..

I agree here. TT OOP should be up for a few more hours in as many situations as possible but if not anybody is free to send picks to the manager on his/her own.

Re: Ask the board Thread

noted Vamos!! i think what should be done for atleast the deadlines was maybe someone on the board (i don't mind doing it) should just make sure all EL's are posted by a certain day and if not run them for it.

Re: Ask the board Thread

I'm going to be completely honest because I feel as though I need to vent.

I've been really unhappy with the management of this tournament, for a number of reasons:
- There was no pre-deadline entry list made by the manager or any outline of a tournament schedule
- Not one of the posts on the front page has been updated for the entire tournament (and this, plus my previous point, is regularly the case when I play a tournament managed by this particular manager)
- OOPs/results have been late or even not forthcoming more than once; 7 hours is not enough time for people across the world to be expected to send on time for a tournament

As a manager on tennisforum I understand that real life sometimes gets in the way and I appreciate the time that all managers dedicate to their tournaments, but I don't think it is unreasonable for a manager to update posts on the first page with draws, tournament info, results & OOPs etc, or to perhaps set an earlier deadline if they won't be around at the deadline or to ask somebody else to post an OOP for them if they will not be able to do it within a time frame that would allow people close to 12 hours to send. And here we are yet again, with 3/6 matches on today's OOP having been completed and a fourth well in progress, and there is still no sign of the manager anywhere nor at the very least any mention that diffs would be late.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that whilst I appreciate people managing, if you are unable or unwilling to be able to put enough time into a tournament to manage it effectively then please maybe think twice before signing up to manage said tournament.

I did not receive a reply to my PM despite him being logged on earlier, which probably means severely limited time to be logged on.

If you could take charge of qualies that would be great. You can always put down in the OOP that players should send both to you and the manager so that if he reappears diffs will be on time.

I've PMed the manager.

Obviously, TT play cannot begin today. Looks like there are enough players for two qualy rounds. The manager will decide if he prefers both tomorrow or if QFR should be Monday. Depends on the OOP, I guess.
