Sincerest apologies Grim. I realized I had left you off earlier but did not get the chance to edit the crosstable until just now. I had made the crosstables for the first two classes with 5 players for each. I copied and pasted the same crosstable for the Novice class overlooking the fact we had 6 players registered for Novice not 5. Sorry.

Who is this vile TD upstart
Who left Grim off the tourney chart?
How can Grim make his matchups fall
When he does not appear at all?
 
There's surely here the implication
That Grim's beneath consideration
Calling him, "Novice" was bad enough
And now you've made things doubly tough
 
This awful error, this omission
Could cause Players to petition
For some TD reprimanding
Or even the Event disbanding!
 
Be quite careful with each Post
Or you might get a Wizard roast!
Mind your x's and your o's
Or I might, here, more rhyme impose!

The Wiz gives us many a rhyme
To amuse us from time to time
On a passing whim
He did one about Grim
Which he thought was somewhat sublime

I pull myself from this tournament when it gets a lot of back and forth with the times when I can play and not the other can and vice versa

I join Power in his frustration... It's really hard to set up a game with my classmates. We just live in different time phases...It's surreal.

Re: Power We HAD a time scheduled he is 7 hours different than my time. Unfortunately he did not show. I tried twice more to reschedule. I never heard from him. I don't blame him. It is hard to schedule but if you want to play you need to try hard to make it.

Power is a really nice guy (I think) but the language barrier amkes trying to set up a game with him very difficult

Re: Live tournament 1-05-2011 Standings crosstable
I'm sorry but I am giving people 2 weeks to schedule a game. I am well aware of time differences, life commitments and language barriers but I also have to try to keep this thing moving as well. Everyone forwards me their correspondence with their matched opponents and there must be some type of effort to make these games happen. I am not beyond extending the 14 day time period if the 2 parties are in contact but just having scheduling diffuculties but if a game is scheduled and then your opponent does not show on more than one occasion and does not provide an explanation in a timely manner or no correspondence at all for that matter for days I have no choice but to grant a forfeit win. This is a live tournament not a correspondence tournament. It seems to me that it is nearly impossible to make a live tournament happen here and I sure dont want any hard feelings for trying to move this thing along. I will finish adminstrating this live tournament but there will not be another. I was hoping to provide this site a live event again, perhaps provking some game discussion to more or less get members communicating in a fashion other than correspondence games and the once in awhile BB post. If this is only frustrating to the players it goes against what this tournament was created for and certainly a failure in that sense.
 
updated 1-30 includes:
Grim vs thornydevil 1-0
Longago vs power 1-0 (forfeit)
Comrade-Lekarka 1-0 resigns
Kingsfull-Spud 1-0 resigns
Spud-ehoppy 0-1 resigns
 
*Unfortunately power has resigned from the tournament. Everyone in Master Class will receive forfeit wins for his unplayed games, but to be clear power did not lose any played games they were all forfeit loses.

Re: Live tournament 1-05-2011 Standings crosstable
I Have tried to schedule live games against Power for about 5 years now without success.It is why I cited the language barrier.I simply don't think he understands the English language at all and I certainly don't understand his.
 
No reason to stop running tourneys I was simply giving you a heads up that trying to schedule a game with Power is a waste of time.I certainly will never try again

It was not anything you said yaman that made me throw in the towel on this. Its just the general feeling I'm getting that this is becoming more of a pain than anything. I just think when something that is supposed to be fun activity becomes frustrating or a burden then it defeats the purpose in which it was created. I just certainly don't want any hard feelings from anyone because of this tournament for any reason. Also, I did not have time to do week 3 pairings tonight I apologize. Please look for the new pairings tomorrow.

Brandon, as my own limited experience as TD for a corr tourney will attest, being the TD is a thankless job. The only real satisfaction you'll get for it is the feeling that you've contributed to the site in a positive, and meaningful manner (to yourself).
 
But here goes anyway: thanks for getting this LIVE tourney going. I'm enjoying it, and I think most of the players involved are enjoying it as well. I'm also certain that any frustration the players are feeling is not based on your role as TD.
 
Best,
