It probably just means that the two directors who handle abandoned tournaments should be tighter on their warnings to slacking organizers rather than have us institute new policies that needlessly restrict new organizers.


Example 1: viewtopic.php?f=91&t=157760
From ~6 months since the tournament started, the TO hasn't posted in 4 times with intervals bigger then 1 month... its tournament from new TO.

Example 2: viewtopic.php?t=175961
The Tournament has just started and the tournament organizer already hasn't posted for more then 1 month.

I'm wondering who is giving permission to these new TO's without pointing them the rules for organizing a tournament? Its obviously that restrictions are required, regardless if someone want or not, or stop giving permissions and medals to TO's that brake the rules.


There are plenty of experienced organizers that don't do those things either, fyi.

The problem is not the new TO's it's the lack of suport for new TO's.

You're trying to fix the problem by making it less, rather than fixing the root cause.

What support do you think would be good to have that isn't currently in place?

Any!

I got no support as a new TO, and the advice I got from the TD's was rubbish! (which lead to delays in getting people as replacements)

What support do you think new TO's get, as I can confirm that as of April this year, there was none.

I help and give advice to any new TO that has requested it from me. I don't know what your situation was like, but we have resources in place and multiple people who you can ask for help.

You can check the tournament handbook for most advice... Although, admittedly, it could use updating. However, if you aren't more specific, there's nothing I can say about what you went through.

his first and only tournament was ambitious, vague, confusing and eventually abandoned because not even the TO found it interesting enough to complete it.
