With regards to the posting of results, I think it's important to post tourney numbers, prizepool and its breakdown, but I dont think posting the players names is a great idea for the same reasons already posted.

Big Tournament operators should not be treated differently to small tournament operators.

I think the posting of Player numbers, prize pool & payout for games (for any weekly/monthly games) should be encouraged.
The charter should have a section indicating whether this will / not be done & the timescale.
If these details are posted on the Casino’s own web site then it should be sufficient to state this.

Also would encourage naming the people who have cashed. If shy state their respective Boards id or ANON.

Having said that TDs for major Tournaments should be allowed to post outline details of Festivals etc. well in advance of their commencement date provided they state in the post the date when the full details as per the charter will be provided. This date should be before any satellites are run for the Tournaments. If the date is not met then ONE extension could be allowed before the thread is frozen. (i.e. Thread reopened when the details as per the Charter are available.)

I agree with the comments that there is a need to divide the live tournament section into sub-sections for Festivals etc.
Why would you encourage the naming of players who cashed in lets say the Thursday game in the SE?

As for naming who won what, yes sometimes when it is asked who scooped what etc etc and it is posted up but normally when you go back to said club and ask who won what or get a text off people is the way of finding out.

When i played in the Voodoo recently i chopped up the tournie and chipwise it was down to who got there name on the board plus they normally take the persons picture, i would of certainly refused to have my picture taken to advertise the fact that i won said tournament.

Shameless (thinly veiled) brag!!!

Think pgodkin's idea about including finishing times is a very good idea that hadn't been mentioned before - makes a big difference to 9-5ers like myself heading in for a game.

Personally I wouldn't be in favour of naming people that don't post here at all, it's a problem I have that if you google my name it comes up with various poker things and it's not really something I like (for professional reasons and if going for a job etc.) and I'm sure I'm not alone, I'd have no problem getting stricter on requesting numbers and payouts and the likes, post event, but naming names is something I'd be against. I don't see how it benefits anyone?? But I could be convinced otherwise.

Forum Divisions:

Do people think this is a good idea?

If so, and we were to divide the forum up, how would something like these divisions sound?
Festivals
Dublin
Leinster
Munster
Ulster
Connacht

Too many? Too few? Perhaps just Festivals, Dublin, Cork, & Regional?


As Kev says, there's been some great suggestions so far, but do keep them coming, if we don't get much feedback, we can only really assume that most people are happy with how things generally were run, we don't want to be making changes just for the sake of it (i.e. if it's not broken, don't fix it!), even just a +1 to something you agree with or a "don't like this", would be helpful. We really want this place to work for everyone so the wider range of opinions we can get the more informed decision we can make..

Guessing we're talking about filters, rather than subforums for the subsections? i.e. ala boards.ie Holdem forum...

Could you have two filters - one for location and another for date?

Personally, I like the way you've outlined it above. It means that when you're looking for something it should be easily found. That said, as long as festivals are seperated I'll be happy.

Why would we need a Cork section specifically?

Just time for a quick comment, but my preference so far would be for a seperate festival section, encourage clubs and pub promoters to have monthly thread with updates, any special games they are holding could have its own thread of course. Splitting things by province might just fragment the forum too much.

This suggestion might be a bit ott but i think it would help.

Why not have an approved organiser listing and each one receives their own sub-forum that they can manage as a kind of mod. Here they are the only ones who can start a thread and can generally use the forum as their own promotion tool. They are responsible for the content and to uphold standards or their approved status is removed.

The main forum can be used for members to post their own threads about tournies etc or for non-approved organisers to add their 2c. it could also hold the sticky outlining the tournament listings for each venue.

So they can all be kept an eye on in the one place, similar to a loony bin

We have recieved some negative feedback about the running of the old tournament forum so I'd like to throw this thread open to feedback from players AND organisers about what you'd like and what we might do differently Please remember though players interests have to come number 1.

We cant promise all ideas will be put in place but everything will be considered
Just the way it is, your all legends for setting up this board, cant wait to get posting.

I think regional sub sections would be a good idea. Events promoted by smaller organisers like myself often get ignored (understandably) in the main body. However if there was a Connacht/West section, i would get greater exposure to players in that area who i assume would go staright to that section when looking for a tourney.

How about this a compromise suggestion that might work..

We set up regional subforums. But organisers can post in the main forum AND the relevant regional sub forum if they so desire. It will mean a bit more work for you guys, but I'm sure you dont mind that. From a players point of view they can still see everything in the main forum and if they want they can get a specific local view in the regional forum.

The exception would be Festivals of course which we would rather keep seperate based on the feedback in this thread. Also looking at the Festivals forum I'm a bit concerned that as a sub forum of live events it wont get the traffic it deserves so I propose changing it to a sub forum of General Poker.

Thoughts on these proposals folks?

calender

Just looking at the sticky on mtt schedules, could this be linked to the calender so that i can go to my calender and see whats on. maybe even the main EOM ones and also any festivals, eg western, ipo etc. pretty lazy on my part but would make it a nice handy touch if all together.

Needs to be updated more than the last one though, which should be down to each casino/club rather than you having to go check with them.
