Thanks for your thoughts Tryout
I am very grateful for your experienced input. Rest assured no "problems to catch up" here
Hopefully just some improvements
It seems we agree on a critical point....

The only meaningful and fair result for a country competition is to have a limited number of entrants for every country.
A large reason i messaged you to ask for you input was,
"from me" Posted: Jun 11 2004, 02:08 AM
Every 1 or 3 months each Olympic Team competes in the Bagolympics which are held,probably via Team Tourney on FIBSLeague ( ?? tryout ) or any other format which has equal entries per Country and the selection process for the National Teams begins again ! From scratch !
I am suggestting a limited and equal number of entrants in a 2nd stage
of the Bagolympics, after players qualify during the current format (stage 1), and wondered if you could incorporate a TEAM LEAGUE for the "Olympiad" on your TEAM site ?
Each rotation you would have countries playing each other with an ultimate crowning of World Champion TEAM.
If you are able to do this can you please let me know ? So we know if it's at least an option ?
Thanks heaps Tryout

thinks that bagolympic could be that qualifying rounds.
use the averages at this stage for the scoring , though they have potential somewhere I'm sure, too confusing when already changing things
Lets just use the top scoreing players from each country by the current format. Those that register the most are rewarded by haveing a better chance to increase their score! Sounds fair and easiest to me. AND they are only competing against their OWN COUNTRYmen/women during this phase !
So how many Qualify
Top 1 from each country per Month gains selection to national team
Individual can only Qualify once so everyone has 3 bites at it because...
It goes for 3 Months. Each month scoring begins from zero but places in Team are taken up.
After three months , Qualifier now begins again from scratch , ie 3 places open.
Meanwhile the team of 3 from each country go onto TEAM LEAGUE 2nd stage and have 3 months to complete their matches !
(Note the effect of taking top 2 countrymen/women EACH month)
And on it rotates, all the while with regular twice weekly come as you please tourneybot tourneys
So if Tryout or anyone can compile the TEAM results this is how i think we should make it happen
I'm not sure we could run the 2nd phase (at bat) with the current format because only those who had qualified could enter ? At least not with tourneybot (or con-currently), very difficult for TD's.
What I suggest doesn't have to happen but please Someone who has the power please make a decision that is clearly an improvement
has told me on Fibs she can do some of those times I suggested earlier but just would want to host the tourneybot phase and then someone else input results into the system. I'll ask that she post times she can do
I got a home e-mail from a TD that i adore today, all it said was "but what is your question?" That's it
Mostly out of all I've written I guess it would be "What do you think? " and ask that you please post it here
Please know i am going on about this, not for me or Australia, but for all those around the world that LOVE these tourneys on fibs. Because of this tourneys POTENTIAL to be Truely GLOBAL
If you agree please post it.
If you dis-agree please post it
Maybe then I'll shut up
Thanks for listening.
