    No finance system, an agreement on the sim issue that people are happy with, more leniency on the failure to post rule (make it 2 matches in a row instead of over an entire season or such), world peace and a side order of salad please

    2 matches in a row is a ridiculously lenient method.

    There is already a proposal on the table that is more lenient than 2 in any amount of time, but nowhere near that lenient.

    As for the sim issue, well I don't see how you'll keep everyone happy but I'd be very surprised if it is distributed to the general public.

    It makes more sense than booting someone out if they have been active during most of the season but accidentally don't submit twice during the entire season. At least with 2 in 2 you give the people a chance, anyway isn't forfitting a match enough? When a manager does not submit a side a random side is picked and the result is forfitted. How is that lenient?


    There is already a proposal on the table that is more lenient than 2 in any amount of time, but nowhere near that lenient.


    What's so lenient about it? Manager doesn't submit, his result is forfitted, that's not lenient. Anyway if a manager comes back and posts one week after he's missed out one submittal, then obviously he's active and there is no reason to boot him out. Marc, I seriously hope you are not arguing with my for the hell of it, you just seem to want to downgrade whatever I say for your own personal pleasure, if that is the case then...

    If a manager fails to submit and forfeits - it's not only his team that loses out - the other teams in the division also lose out as they don't get free wins against the team.

    That is why on the second non submission, a team is selected and the game played as normal.

    Another point to be raised at the meeting then. Why not make it so if a player does not submit he cannot win? That's not lenient, it's harsh, but it will get the job done...then after 2 non-submittals in a row the manager is out. In my opinion, which I'm sure your just dying to ignore and berate, I think it would work a lot better and make sure that situations such as the recent one with Cloete do not happen.

    anything i have had to say about the idea of a a financial system has been said in other threads so i wont re-write it here


    on the issue of failure to submit teams i think from here on in it should be voted on by the board, if the majority of the board vote to let the manager off than thats it, if they vote to romove him, thats it. that seems a simple system that could, if they wished, be lenient on an actoive manager that simply forgot a couple of weeks (not mentioning any names ofcourse)
    but i have to agree with marc that 2 matches in a row to be removed would be rediculously lenient

    I agree with Age. After all, what's the point of having a Board if you don't get to vote on stuff? I think that's the best way to resolve it, because that way you can remain consistent in method no matter what the circumstances surrounding a non-submission. This way, you're tempted to go against the rules in pardoning a manager and it may well come down to a vote. However, if the rule is to vote on the dismissal or retaining of a manager, then you won't be going against the rule by arriving at either decision.

    (I'm sure that half the people who read the above post are confused. Well done to those who aren't. )

    But then conflits such has hatred and other such issues might clash with the voting by the board members,

    say for example if rich didnt like me ... he would for sure vote against me and that would mean i be kicked, even though looking from different perspectives that wouldnt be totally fair giving 1 person all that power when Wccc is supposed to be a everyone invovled thing

    But then again whoever gets on the board has been chosen responsibly and ofcourse that means that they will vote sensibly , so in that sense it wouldnt matter At all

    And im not in favour of the financial system

    I'm against the idea of salaries being implemented, because although some think it would be simple, it just wouldn't be. It would end up getting complicated. Its sound like a good idea, but when you think about it, I just think how it could be implemented in a simple way..

    Although I had a discussion with GB about the new sim not being distributed to the managers, I would still like the board to possibly consider giving the managers a copy. I hardly ever use VC4 for testing. It usually good when I'm bored to fill in time. I'd use the new sim the same way. It would be nice if the board could consider this, as I was looking foward to the new sim. However I understand if it nots distributed. I wont be mad .

    I'll think you find that we are able to separate these two issues.

    I know a lot of people really like Andy, but that hasn't meant they've backed him up.

    i think there are enough people on the board to eliminate any dislikings, also the board should be mature enough - and i think that they all are - to be able to vote objectivly
