So far the tourneys have all been "unofficial", ie just put together by interested people (mainly
Dave, Sin, John, etc). For instance, the tourney pages have been efforts of both John (Vaknso) and
myself. Because the tourneys are somewhat ad hoc, RHP hasn't been able to take on the task of
"officially" running them. (RHP has been tremendously supportive, for instance they provided some
PHP computer code that made it much easier for me to track the games on my tourney sites, and
have in general enthusiastically supported the tournament efforts.)
However, the rumors are that this may change soon, with Russ and Chris adding some official
tournament features. That will be great. I will put a plug in here - if you have any ideas about
how/what would be nice features for the tournament sites, please post them. Part of what is needed
seems to be a list of tourney features to include.
you have done a terriffic job, Michael, far beyond what anybody could
expect. If RHP was to take over your efforts, that will be great. With
my information systems backgound, I can safely say: whatever your
recommendations are, they will probably very sound. Thanks again.
