    Stumps

    Well guys I think the time has come to call stumps on this great game. I just recently changed positions at work and don't have the time to run this game as well as I like. I actually probably never had the time to run it the way I really wanted for a long time, which I'm sure most of you guys have noticed. I do apologise the poor way I have run it recently, but unfortunately time constraints have limited my ability to run the game the way it should be run.

    There is the option for someone else to take it over. But TBH I don't think anyone is capable of running it the way Simon and Blewy ran the game. It will really take that type of commitment to get the game back to close to its past glory. But in reality even when those two were putting in the extra time required, the activity was continually dropping off. If it was to continue most likely it will just go through the motions. Personally I rather see it not die a sad and pathetic death. The last couple of attempts have probably tarnished its image enough. But if someone does want to take it over and feel that they are sure they can get it back near its glory days. Then I am more than happy give them all the WCC files, which I have from day one.

    Unless there are some major objections then I will just ask James to put the game in achieves where the past WCs and Ashes are. I think it deserves a place their as it has been an institution to Cricket Web and brought many members here.

    Sorry about this guys but I think this is best thing for legacy of the game.

    If you can take over directly from where Tharmi left it, and do it consistently, then go for it.

    Thanks for at least doing it at all, Tharmi. I don't want this to die out.

    Bugs you do realise there is a lot more to running the game, then just simming matches. Are you sure you really have the time to put into the other aspects of game. Which basically require you to do stuff for WCC every odd day. It is the things like updating stats, tables, the website, rosters in the off season and other little things you might want to add to the game to increase activity. You got a wife and a kids, a full time job and your meant to be running another sim on CW, Webbers FC

    Also I remember when you were simming matches before and you yourself said that you lost interest due to lack of submissions. There going to be plenty rounds you sim where you might not get even half the teams submitting sides. Especially with the current activity levels. Most likey activity levels aren't going to high. Will you still have the motivation, when only a handful managers post sides and comment on results.

    If you really want to take the game over and reckon you have the time to do the little things that keep the interest level up then fair enough. But I just rather not see the game in the same situation in a couple months time. When you might realise you don't have the time required to do everything to keep the game going.

    There is a lot more to running the game then just a couple hours of simming matches. Fair enough you don't want to see the game finish, I don't either. But honesty do you have the time to run the game properly.

    I'm not trying to be harsh, as I'm sure you can run the game well. But I just want to know if you have thought about what it actually would take to run the game. Or is this just a knee jerk reaction to the potential the game might finish up.

    Look, I would love to see this continue in one form or another. It's a great concept thats unfortunately been run shoddily by everyone post-Simon (myself included).

    I think maybe a break needs to be had, just a small one, before a restructure and relaunch.


    I may put my hand up as well.

    i am quiet up for running and doing everything taht is needed to keep it running with the help of greg to do little things. the database yes is time consuming and takes alot of effort but i am happy to do what i need. the simming of matches i can do at work on saturdays each week....

    i am for what ever is best for cw and if that is not me running it then so be it.

    i leave it up to the powers.

    Would we need to re start ? to get alot of managers interested ?

    or should it die a sudden death and be forgotten about for a while. ?

    alot of questiosn need be answered. do i or dont i.......

    a few of us need to nut out what is best and the best option.
