GD is not part of any match and is only used as last resort.

It is only half of an argument. If we follow that logic then why PTS system is before the CB?

The short answer - it was suggested that rules be changed for 2014 so CB would count ahead of PTS. This was voted down.

Which is pretty logical. Why should a Round I pick decide a Round II match, when the decision can be made on the Round II match. It is exactly what I say: CB should only be used when there is no way to make decision on the actual round pick.


(I understand that there was a need to insert a new method to avoid decision on ranking, and it was inserted to the end, but that was not the logical place)

yup put it up for voting in 2015

I personally don't like using GD at all but I would expand PTS. For example bonus points for actually picking the right score in the right set. Instead of 63 64 and 64 63 being the same.

It's tough though. Out of 25 suggestions last year there were only 2 rule changes. Closer SR ratio in 5 set matches and points for Davis Cup. That's it.

Question about DC points - I gave points for live rubbers only based upon the order of matches in the DC thread, so for example in the Canada v Ukraine tie below, Dudisela75 got points for winning the fourth rubber and making it 3-1 but J99 didn't for the 5th rubber as the tie is "over" at that point based upon the order of matches. Is this correct or if a tie is 2-1 after the doubles should both singles on the Sunday count as live as the picks are sent in at the same time?

Code:
(6) Canada 4:1 Ukraine (c)  

12:13 | Dudisela75 vs. Mishka Logvi #SRs: 8-3
10:09 | Blarghman vs. Cazorla #SRs: 4-5
07:06 | J99/Blarghman vs. digor/Mishka Logvi #SRs: 4-4
04:02 | Dudisela75 vs. (alt) Cazorla #SRs: 1-1
04:04 | J99 vs. digor #SRs: 2-1

I asked about the same thing and got the answer that all ties on Sunday will be treated equally. Either they're all dead, or they're all live, depending only upon whether the score after Saturday is 3-0 or 2-1.

True - but the main thing was that everybody had the chance for their voice to be heard and their opinions discussed by all.

Well sadly not everyone fully understands the changes being proposed, or like some of my proposals were misunderstood so were put forth in the wrong way, perhaps I should have somehow explained them better, I will do better next time. So they are likely to get voted down, it's very frustrating I know.

I'm sure that policy will continue - put it forward again next time.
