    I've just tied another player in the final round of a tournament. All of the games are complete and yet nothing has happened for several days. Do we both win? Do we have to play again? If not or if so, when will my profile be updated or when will the new games start?

    Understood. Thanks for your response. Also, the apostrophe should go before the word ('till) to replace the syllable you've removed.

    actually Seth it should be 'til meaning short for until.

    I wouldn't take the piss out of someone offering you help.

    actually there are two alternatives:
    till is a valid word, meaning the same as until
    until see till above
    'til is an acceptable abbreviation of until, but only acceptable in colloquial (messaging) discussion and not in printed text.

    Perhaps we should turn this thread into a discussion on grammatical English, specifically excluding American variants.
