You Can Contribute to the Tournament Handbook

Postby Night Strike on Tue Jan 11, 2011 2:36 pm

Updating the Tournament Handbook

The Tournament Handbook is the go-to guide for all things related to CC Tournaments. It is a vital source for players, organizers, and directors as it contains our policies, procedures, and helpful guides. The handbook has had two editions, but it's beyond time for a third edition. We've had some huge changes this year in adding the Tournament Database and the update of the Abandoned/Rescued Tournaments. We Directors have been able to make some tweaks to the Handbook, but we have not had the time to do a full compilation and rewrite of sections that are needing attention.

We Directors are looking for a few community members to help us compile the next edition of the Tournament Handbook. Not only should it allow the rewrite to occur faster, but we also hope some fresh eyes will provide clarity to some sections and think of some things that we Directors have missed, especially in the Tools and Tips section. This project is not a chance to make new policies; it's meant to be a compilation project.

We are looking for anyone who is active in the tournament forums as a player, an organizer, or both to aid in this project. If you would like to help out, please post in this thread your desire as well as a statement about why you feel that you will be beneficial to this project. PM applications will not be accepted.

If you're still not sure you want to help out, anyone who makes a significant contribution to the rewrite will receive a General Contribution Medal. Thanks in advance to everyone who chooses to help out.

Great opportunity for everyone, even I might have a go. Maybe add a link to the current handbook?

I would love to help! I am fairly active in the tournament forum, I've played or am playing about 6 tourneys and have organized 3 tournaments as well (1 complete, 2 in progress). I'm also pretty good at spotting things and clarifying well, I've had practice in the Foundry :)

I would be interested in helping with the New Tournament Handbook

I feel that with hosting Past & Current Tournaments
I would have some valuable input that could be beneficial to the Handbook

Hope I can be of service in some form

I would very much like to help out, this seems like a great opportunity for TO's and Players to "write the handbook" in a way that would seem user friendly to those who are new TO's as well as new players. I look forward to the new edit (: . Let me know if I can help.

I'd like to volunteer with assisting in this project.
I've always consider myself a fairly active tournaments player, as a high percentage of my games are always part of Tournaments - In fact only 3 of my 45 games currently are not (and my normal game count used to be double it - so while I may not have yet organized any tourneys, I feel I'm very familiar with the Tournaments arena.
Additionally, I have oft been led to believe that I can occasionally provide a different perspective (though perhaps mistakenly) while even being able to identify simple things like spelling and grammatical errors at an irritating level.

I am interested in contributing; I've organized only 3 tournaments since joining CC (although one was fairly large with 120 players, and I have three active ones), but they all have near-perfect grammar and spelling, and the rules are all generally well-organized. As a result, I would be more than happy to assist in the "boring" stuff (checking grammar, spelling, things like that).
Thanks,
James
