I have some ideas right now.

@Bembelimen: About Tournaments organization. Open Fixture block (as always)  but DONT create the "Videos" block until confirmation period.
When players confirmate their apperance, also declare if will record Video Tournaments.
When Confirmation time ends, open as many Videos Blocks as players will record.

Example: Ghabry will have his own block of video posting. Below Ghabry start a new block with Jim's videos... etc.

This way, all videos will be uploaded at web page, also increases organization, each one with this space and prevents from future disasters, like a 3rd person willing to show his battle-videos and no chance because of limited 1 block.

@Admins (general): Tournament Calendar for Year 2010. A well organized board with links to played Tournaments.

Here I think in considering a MT / ET for every month (Satudarday or Sunday) Officials, regulated by admins too.
MT: Middle Tournament: only 3 or 7k voting available.
ET: End Tournament: only 5 or 9k voting available.

System for each T will be voted, but the Gold Limit is restringed to 2 choices, this way you decide for a "low" or "high" armybuild in each event.

About this 2010 Calendar, at least lets use it first 4 months, for testing if it becomes from funny! to boring... (novelty effect). If having Tourneys every 2 weeks becomes obsolete, from May on forward just ET (any gold limit votation as nowadays).

Advantages: More testing dates to virgin systems, like the 7k of Pink Grail, or DOTS (if isnt played this month).
Increase of activity in Chat, Hall of fame Score (many players just appear for Tournaments, not casual battles).

Acception of 2010 Calendar would mean a MT January as next Tournament after this one.

Not possible because posts are ordered by date so you need a time machine to find out how many users will record.

Officials, regulated by admins too.
MT: Middle Tournament: only 3 or 7k voting available.
ET: End Tournament: only 5 or 9k voting available.
Nope I will not manage more then one tournament per month. I'm already busy enough and this would cost me another Saturday.

Video Blocks: After player confirmations, admin open as many "videos" sections as players will record.
If Ghabry and Jim are only video makers, so 2 sections of videos will be open (one for each one).

Already shown, videos space doesnt have enough space for 2 video makers... even worse if some day a 3rd player wants to upload his Tournament videos (I may try it in future because I like Zoom + Spinning Scenes + Cinematic effects).

2 Tournaments by Month: OK. Bad idea for official. But still good for virgin or under fix systems. Just an invitation post for a MT.

Calendar 2010: Agroups Tournaments by year. When you enter you see all 12 Tournaments with direct links.
This Idea would have more success if 2 Official Tourneys were played by month... but reading your answers, this idea also loses his strenght.

That just a configuration option bembelimen has to change because I dunno where the config option is.
And the Video Limit is per page and not per post. So a second video post would change nothing.

Ok Ghabry. Didnt know Video Limit was per page.

Anoter Idea: Vote for best battle of each Tournament.
Example: I liked the video Jim vs Sipax Semifinals.. open a votation after ALL videos are encoded.
See and vote for the best battle shown!

Another Vote would be best video recorded, but would be more interesting if 2 or more persons record.
Here we consider the Zoom, Spins, any other original camera moves...
Here doesnt matter if was the best battle... just the dedication to make a mini-film.

Advantages: Effort for making good videos, opens a new unexplored competition. Increases quality of battles, trying to make them look the most Epical possible: not just a standard overall view.
I already have in mind cinematic ideas to make battles very real. I shall learn to record soon. Smiley

@Ghabry: Already tested the new Item Cost Programm. Nice indeed. More complete.

the problem with videos can be solved by giving Tournaments a childboard just like armybuilts
Tournaments, Tournament videos

it will keep everything clear

As for MT/ET yeah i think its good idea, thou i wouldnt divide it into 5k/9k and 3k/7k, ill rather have 3/5k and 7/9k or moded formats with gc to vote in MT, and unmoded formats with gc to vote in ET

edit: oh yeah, and reason for why MT would be cool, is that it would produce more games ;] dont know if its just me but most people just sit on hamachi online and they seem not that interested in playing DO Tongue

and second thing, i think we should do something (i dont know what ;]) to get new players in those tourneys. As of lately there are many new nicks on hamachi, so maybe somehow ;] one thing that stops them i think is that they think they would suck so they are afraid to join, so lets talk to them guys ;]

Anyone interested in the "best recorded video"? I think will be very attractive (also voting for best battle then, as polls).

Recorders of January: Ghabry, Jeronimo... who else joins the competition?
