Postby kennys777 on Fri Oct 12, 2012 3:34 pm

Going to wait 2 days to see if I can get any reserves. They may be needed in this tournament. On Sunday, I will mark it as full regardless of the turnout for reserves.

Thanks again for joining and good luck.

Don't fish here please. If you are not here to play, you shouldn't be here to judge Admins actions. This is not a BIG tournament, all those issues were clarified, obviously you are trolling to find a fight to justify some past action against you

GLG, it is not your place to do this in this thread. The TO has already made changes and the tournaments is ready to start. You're assuming, and you know what that does. There is no rule that says TOs can't run a big tournament as their first one. There is a rule that says they can not run a large team tournament first. So, don't troll, get your facts straight, and if you aren't going to join a tournament (which you haven't done in over 3 years), then don't worry about it.

Good luck with your tournament kennys. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

I guess first off, is this a question? If it is a statement then per Boolean logic, via Venn diagrams, you have just proven your own statement...

Since I assume it is a question (and I hate assuming anything), I have to ask, why didn't you just check the first thread's last edit? You would have seen that I edited the first post (the only person who can do that is the TO) and see that it was actually within the past 72 hours (at most). So, if this was an inactive tournament, which it seems the reasoning behind you stating this tournament is still active (thanks for the support), I would have to say this post in this thread does not need a response from me.

However, you probably expect a response, which you have now received beyond the original response. My original response was actually the short form, this, however, is the long form, which openly highlights the fault of the system of labels in this forum, and the subsequent forums where, it seems, you would like to place this thread. Well, we are playing, and a simple "game finder" search of this tournament would garner a finding of 3 active games in round 1 awaiting finishing!

Hey, let me just say for the record, I am flattered by the Big Brother keeping an eye on me and my tournament. It truly does make me feel safe and secure.

I probably should have just stuck with the short answer, but since CC seems to want to muddy the waters endlessly, in terms of tournament threads, I thought best to at least make light of the situation. I do understand you are just doing your job, however, your job is to make sure no tournament becomes inactive, and the facts are that the first post's "edit" time/date states there was no need to even post here!!! That is the real problem, you are looking for me to do your job, and that irks me to no end!

Yes, Convict to Congressman to President is still active as the original titled stated this whole time, "ONGOING RD1"!

I think it is just an update. I believe that they just label the thread for themselves so the tournament directors know what is going on. I don't think they are asking a question. By the rules a tournament has to finish within a year. If it takes longer than I year I believe you have to get permission. That is just a guess though. The tournament directors in my opinion do a pretty good job. they seem to stay on top of things. They always start tournament in a fair amount of time. They award medals in a fair amount of time too. Don't be too hard on these guys for they are volunteers. They spend hours of their own time to make CC a great site. They normally have to go through a bunch of threads a day starting tournaments and closing tournaments updating tournaments and running their own tournaments. In my opinion I think that this is just an update for themselves. I could be wrong though, it wouldn't be the first time or the last.

i agree with generalhead. It's just a little check up.
Sometimes a tourney is going on, but very slow...could depend on map and settings...so the forum isn't very active at some moments. They have to check if the tread is still active or not if you ask me.
If they would have a question...you'll know it. i'm sure of that!

I believe you are correct for the most part. However, per the tournament organizer rules, we are required to label our tournaments in the byline. I have done that, and volunteer or not, nobody was looking at the details, only the facade of the tournament. In other words, someone saw the last post (which happened to be game numbers with links showcasing Round 1 was still VERY active), yet it is a waste of my time to respond to such inquiries. If the volunteers do not have the time to do minimal research, then they should not be volunteers. I work 2 jobs, 1 full time, 1 part time, and I am in the process of doing a startup venture. I really get irked by the lack of genuine research, especially when the research would take them only 2 clicks. Instead, I have to respond in a thread that is active. It defeats the purpose of me having to post in the byline per the TO guidelines!

By the rules a tournament has to finish within a year. If it takes longer than I year I believe you have to get permission. That is just a guess though. The tournament directors in my opinion do a pretty good job. they seem to stay on top of things. They always start tournament in a fair amount of time. They award medals in a fair amount of time too. Don't be too hard on these guys for they are volunteers. They spend hours of their own time to make CC a great site. They normally have to go through a bunch of threads a day starting tournaments and closing tournaments updating tournaments and running their own tournaments. In my opinion I think that this is just an update for themselves. I could be wrong though, it wouldn't be the first time or the last.

i agree with generalhead. It's just a little check up.
Sometimes a tourney is going on, but very slow...could depend on map and settings...so the forum isn't very active at some moments. They have to check if the tread is still active or not if you ask me.
If they would have a question...you'll know it. i'm sure of that!


So are you saying that the post in my thread is merely a flag for higher-ups to see? The forum is active because I edit it regularly, and also have posted the links to the games to round 1 (right above Merch's post) which would be a good indicator that this tournament is active.
