As we discussed in another thread, there is a trade-off in bracket tournaments between chasing down opponents and having "larger" tournaments.
It occurs to me that the fridays3 tournament is a good hybrid. It's a monthly tournament, but the points are accumulated from multiple "flash" style bracket tournaments held at the same time each week. Either the opponents are there at that time, or they don't play for points.
Anyway, I wanted to clone this tournament, calling it "fridays3 reloaded" and conduct it 6 hours later than the current one. Kari offerred to help, so I anticipate that fibsleagammon web space shouldn't be a problem, and having a backup TD will help keep it regular.
The problem now is TourneyBot. It seems that it is coded such that "fridays3" is not so much a tournament style, as a particular tournament. To duplicate the tournament, one needs to duplicate the code??? I don't know what's involved, but it seems like the tournament style should be named something else, like "accumulated" (short for accumulated points bracket) and that "fridays 3" and "fridays3 reloaded" and anything else someone comes up with should be particular instances of ongoing tournaments opened.
Perhaps the best thing is to post something on the dev list, learn ruby and make a code contribution
