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 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

I would be very interested in helping out with this. While I have only organized a small number of tournaments, those tournaments have been very large ones. And of course, I play in a vast number of tournaments...it's almost all I do anymore. As well, I have a lot of experience in writing manuals, both technical and educational, and have been told that I'm pretty good at wording things in a manner that is easy to read and understand.

Re: You Can Contribute to the Tournament Handbook

Postby DaveH on Mon Oct 10, 2011 7:43 am

Hi - Having started a few tournaments I could not find out much very about the various systems that organisers use to set up and manage their tournaments.

Therefore I thought I'd make a few notes which may be helpful (or not) for others - and would also encourage responses from guys with far more experience and knowledge.

Having done that I wondered if this or another thread would be the forum - obviously I would be happy to assist in the handbook, but it may be that a separate thread to allow additional comments and suggestions may be better?

The following is a few notes I drafted so far:-

Managing Tournaments – Excel Macros

As someone new to setting up tournaments, I thought that it might be useful to publish some of the techniques I have found to manage the publication of setting them up and keeping them updated. Of course I know I am reinventing the wheel, as many of you have been setting up and running tournaments for years, so any and all comments and suggestions in this forum that I can also learn from would hopefully encourage others to set up a their own tournaments and possibly spark ideas for new tournaments.

I use Excel for keeping track of games, but my first challenge was getting to grips with the CC coding. The [Official] Conquer Club Tournament Handbook is an excellent guide and you can use the coding directly or, as I do, via macros in Excel.

For instance, game invitations appear as “View Game 8918488 (Auto-Join Game)” for which the coding is “View Game 1234567 (Auto-Join Game)” where 1234567 is the game number and Password is the password.

In Excel, the coding to get this is:
="[to]"&A12&" "&B$4&"[/to]" where A12 holds the game number and B4 the password. In this way you can keep lists of the opponents and game numbers and a list of the coding which can then be copied and pasted into pm’s to the various contestants. This makes multiple invitations by pm far easier!

In the game thread, I write it so that the game information appears as “Game 1234567 Dave vs DaveH” and, when the game is over, the result is shown as “Game 1234567 Dave vs DaveH (or with the first player’s name crossed out of course!).

In CC coding this is Game 8918488 Dave vs DaveH and then Game 8918488 Dave vs DaveH
(or Game 8918488 Dave vs DaveH depending on the result)

Arranged in Excel such as:
A B C D E
1 Player 1 Player 2 Game Number Winner
2 Dave DaveH 1234567

The conditional statement in Excel that is copied to 2E is then:
=IF(D2="","[game]"&C2&"[/game] "&A2&" vs "&B2,IF(D2=A2, "[game]"&C2&"[/game] "&A2&" vs "&B2&"", "[game]"&C2&"[/game] "&A2&" vs "&B2))

This allows a complete list of results to be quickly copied and pasted into the main thread.
However I’m sure you experienced guys out there have far better systems!

In my previous response, of course the coding in my notes was translated from the Word version, so it does not show the actual Excel phrases required. I'm sure that there is a way around this other than sending in the Word version -though...
