    Are you going to join the tourney?
    Yes, I probably will. I have pm'd mannie and jamjamjoe with a geography lesson in my usual tactful way.

    LordByron has taken his flag down but I'm pretty sure it was the stars and stripes. I'll give him a burst as well. No flag - no entry.

    LordByron - English is not his natural tongue and I think he's European, probably Spanish, but maybe South American. Odd graph, though.
    If Jamjam lives south of the equator, then he's eligible - tough player, try to exclude him. 🙂

    Phew, I was relying on memory but have checked our atlas and Nigeria is completely north of the equator. So he should withdraw.Period.

    I think it's about where you are, not where you come from. It makes for a small group, And I'm the bottom feeder in this one.

    Did I ever say that there was any part of the U.S. in the southern hemisphere? No, all I said was southern, which like I said before, should imply hemisphere as they're clearly stated that they're hemispheres. I know geography, maybe not as much as most but I know where the fricken equator is.

    I've come to the conclusion that these Hemisphere tournaments absolutely suck. Just make it a banded tournament open to all and be done with this nonsense.

    I agree. But to get it to work properly all it would take is a little code rework, much like the banded ones are now. Try to enter a tourney outside your rating and you get "...sorry, you are ineligible etc etc..."

    Yeah, but the idea would still suck since the majority of players are from the Northern Hemisphere. However, I like the idea of having National or Continental tournaments.

    Same dog, different fleas. We'd still have the waka jumpers.

    I'm eligable for it by my rating. I don't want or intend to enter it but if it doesn't fill up I will.

    I simply cannot believe this. I cannot get the message through to this retard. I'm now going to do something that I have never done before, in an open forum, in an attempt to get the message across - I'm going to shout.

    GALAXYSHIELD, CAN YOU HEAR ME? THE REASON THAT YOU ARE INELLIGIBLE TO ENTER ANY SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE TOURNEYS IS BECAUSE, GOING BY YOUR PROFILE FLAG YOU PROFESS TO LIVE SOMEWHERE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, THE LANDS OF WHICH ARE TOTALLY CONFINED TO THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE OF THIS PLANET. IS THIS CLEAR NOW?

    Sorry to all those who were upset at my loud demeanour, but lets hope now that the message has finally got there.

    This is yet another reason why there should be tournament Moderators who set up and adudicate tournaments and relieve the Admins of this (probably tiresome) responsibility.
