Some managers aren`t counting spelling mistakes in the your draws. I don`t think this is fair unless the spelling mistake is completely off. I mean if someone said Chuidinelli instead of Chiudinelli obviously we know who they meant. I just don`t think it`s fair. I always type my draw as I`m more confortable doing it that way and I know eventually I`m going to make a spelling mistake and I wouldn`t want myself to be penalitized for it. I just PMed someone who made a spelling mistake so they wouldn`t be penalized and it happens many times every week. I think they should be counted. This isn`t a grade 4 spelling test

If the manager post a draw people can use this one so there wont be much spelling problems

I know but as I said I`m more confortable using the PDF file and I shouldn`t be penalized for that if in fact I do make a mistake

I count spelling mistakes although I please several times not to do!! But my spreadsheets are designed to automatically count the winners as I write, so I re-edit standings only if one gives me an alert about a mistake in counting their picks. But this is annoying for me
Why don't all players follow the draw as I write ?! ... If they all do, it will be comfortable for me & them!! ...
N.B. I copy from the pdf file!

I've mentioned before I agree people shouldn't be penalized for little spelling mistakes, and I never do penalize people, but essentially it's up to the manager I guess...if it's too much trouble for them then that's their call.

thanks, I understand that it may go unnoticed when scoing the draws as the spreadsheet may not pick it up but if someone inquires about their score and it turns out that a spelling mistake caused it I don't think it's too much trouble to correct the score

I know it's hard to find managers, but should a manager take on a tournament and then not post any update at all because they are not around? Surely a manager should commit to FITD when they know they will be around to update scores.

It's a shame, because the game loses it's edge when you don't know how you or the opposition are doing.

And yes, I will manage one day, I just haven't got the confidence yet! Is there a spreadsheet for this game?

No you really shouldn't commit to run a tournament if you can't give regular updates...
