I'm not sure if you guys are looking for someone with more history on the forums, but I would be interested in managing some tournaments later in the season, once I feel more confident in being able to meet the required deadlines reliably. Just a few questions regarding timing:

What aspect of a tournament would be considered the most time-sensitive when it comes to the TT players? The posting of Differentials, Results, Communication of any errors in their submission, or OOPS? It's just that all these factors, combined with the matches themselves, I'm not sure (when you guys sleep) what sort of timezone would best suit me if I was looking at managing tournaments in the future. Also, when it comes to OOPS what source is the most widely used to get that info, is there an expected time for this information to be released, or does it vary from tournament to tournament?

I hope I haven't bombarded you with all the questions, it' just my lack of knowledge when it comes to this has lead to me being unable to participate as reliably as I'd like, and I would definitely need to improve before taking on any management responsibilities.

We are happy to have any new managers, challengers are now particularly easy to manage, and will not take much of your time unlike large events, that you can work your way up to over time if you wish, although it is still valuable to have extra managers for challengers.

Producing differences is the most difficult aspect of managing , the rest takes little time, only the first 2 days in a challenger will require much time now.

Once you decide you are ready to take on an event I will make myself available to walk you thru every step so that there are no issues, I’ve wrote it all out in my step by step managing guide, but also like to be available for hands on assistance for any new managers first events, to assure everything goes smoothly and you are not overwhelmed.

Being from Australia I would consider which time zone works best for your life with posting differences at the start of play, possibly Asian challengers which there are many thru the year or possibly the opposite end in North America for evenings instead of mornings.

If no one requests Monterrey CH*, I will transform it into Nur-Sultan CH. If no one requests Mexico City CH*, I will transform it into Jerusalem CH.

Thanks anny and Walsall.

@anny - It won't be hard to find someone to post OOP, so I'll help you or someone else can who plays your event. Please open Monterrey as soon as you can.
@Walsall - I've replaced Mexico City CH* with Jerusalem. Since it's replacing a 125 pt challenger, Jerusalem will be played as a 125pt challenger for TT purposes.

April calendar will be posted later. :)

April calendar... I've taken Anning and Seoul to start. I will be more than happy to give either one of those tournaments to new managers considering they should be very easy to manage.
