    How would you like this forum run - Feedback from all welcome

    Hi All

    The tourney forum on Boards while a great resource for all for getting information about events and for promoting events had its issues and led to some of the biggest dramas on the forum.
    The aim was for full transparency so that players could make an informed choice about what event to attend, hence the rigid list of criteria to promote a tournament.
    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

    Hi,

    Was a fan of the rigid strucure in place for posters on the old tournament forum. Think the posting of numbers for past games (for any weekly/monthly games) should be, at the very least, encouraged as can be a major factor in deciding what game to play and will lead to less people having to post asking what kind of numbers does the SE get on a Friday, etc.

    Also an up-to-date thread of what games are in each casino weelky would be good. 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. Those that go more than a month out of date should be taken off the list then maybe?

    Cheers

      From an organizer's perspective, I also think that the rigid criteria is necessary. Transparency is so important. Also, having the list to adhere to means that promoters won't forget to post certain things. I usually leave it up to Jp to post our games, but when I post I find it very helpful to have the list required.

      With regards to updates on runners, prizepool etc., I do think organizers should do this. However, I think it should be noted that it may not happen immediately. I think people should realize that it might take a day or two for the info to be posted.

      I think that for up to date schedules and info for the various casinos/clubs, just one thread for each club seems like a good idea. The Voodoo and the SE do it (just two I can think of right now). And starting a new one each month, like the Voodoo have started doing, cuts down on the amount of pages someone would have to to skim through to find what they are looking for.

      Maybe if you could give some examples of the negative feedback, we could come up with some suggestions to make improvements.

        The rigid format was because players were being ripped off. Turning up for games and been dumped on with crap structures and outrageous rake.

        So...it's was in OUR interests. I'd like it to be the same or similar.

          I think organisers should be encouraged to post results of the games they are getting free advertising for.

            As a player I agree with the above.

            Transparency is so important...........................
            In respect of the number of runners, Prize pool, who made the final table & payout etc.

            NOW that I have found you............................................... ......
            I will give this more thought as I was one of those who contributed to some of the negative feeedback on the other Poker forum.

            MODs if you do not want me on here just let me know........

              Why wouldn't we want you on here Pat? Nothing is perfect and feedback is the only way to find things to improve.

              On the results thing, I agree to a point, but trying to enforce this via bans or similar might well be counter productive. There is something we are talking over about organisers that may help in this matter, and if this happens we will let everyone know.

                As 5star says, we defo want your feedback, we want everyone's.

                As well as negative feedback from players about things like Results, etc. we also have had negative feedback from organisers who weren't happy with the strictness levels and the rigid layout and similar, we're willing to listen to everyone, our first priority will be to players obviously, but a robust discussion in here between all the parties would be very useful. And if we can make life easier for everyone then that's great IMO.

                Fire out any opinions you guys have don't hold back, even if it's about how we modded the last place, we may not be able to make the required changes, but if we don't know about an issue then we can't fix it. PM us even if you don't want to post it publicly.

                  I think the charter everyone had to fill out for advertising tournaments should stay but also with more info. Saying yes to every question tells us nothing.

                  For example the TD question should actually state who the TD is not just that there is one.

                    I have a problem with this in theory (in practise it rarely matters to me these days). I don't want my name splashed on an internet site for various tournie placings.

                    I don't want to appear on any irish poker rankings, I don't want my name listed as playing in a cash league or listing how many hours I've spent playing poker in a period. When I pay my money into a tournie I don't remember signing anything about publishing my name or agreeing to same.

                    It's good for pros or people looking for backers to have their names associated with wins etc, and I've no problem telling poker friends how i got on in a particular event but leaving a permanent record on the internet?? Not clever for a large number or regular punters imo

                    Yes knowing the numbers and the prizepool is useful for people considering a game but lets remember that google is out there cataloging and maybe some people don't want that info following them.

                      The actual presentation of the inof required could probably be improved. Most of the complaining organisers had something to hide imo.

                      The good organisers welcomed the rules imho. It made them stand out and considering the free advertising they got it was a very small price.

                        Hi All,

                        Personally I liked the charter for posting poker tournaments, as a person who used to play (some time ago now) in games where the organiser would rip the players off I think the current system helps insures transparency which is what we all want.

                        One of the biggest problems with the boards tournie section is the site has become so popular and everyone is posting their games on the site.

                        I've a few suggestion which I think may help.

                        1: I'd like a different section just for festivals.
                        2: Christine has already mentioned this one, but I think a monthly news thread of whats going on for the different casino's or organisers would be a good idea.

                          Results would be a good idea, not names of winners but just the payout after the event is finished. If you can't force organisors to post them up at least ask, if the bigger tournament organisors do it the rest would probably follow?

                            Well, we'd never make changes that allowed organisers to hide anything, we'll be just as firm here when it comes to the answering questions rule. That's one thing that we won't be changing, as you say any organisers that have a problem with this are not the type you want to give free advertising to, and their opinion don't even come into the equation. That wasn't the type of complaints we were talking about though.

                            It was more to do with the formating, us being too rigid and that kind of thing, but there's some really good suggestions coming in already, the problem with relaxing the formatting and the likes is it makes our job ALOT harder, in having to make sure everything is in the post and we'd really need the likes of BigBadPat and similar to be reporting posts and maybe even get in some more mods, it's really just not feasible to carefully read every post, expecially if this becomes as busy as boards. But we could certainly ask for more specifics if players think that is needed.

                            So the actual logistics of the place have to come into play as well and be considered, but we'll deal with that, you guys just keep firing out the ideas.

                            This is actually a really good idea, and reminds me of an idea I had during one of our chats when we were setting the place up. I had forgotten about it til now, but it was to maybe divide the forum up into different regions or so. Would organisers and players like something like that, or maybe having sub-forums for Festivals/ Update threads/ etc. etc. this is where the benefits of having our own forum can come into play, we can do whatever we want here and do it quickly.

                            Anyway, I'll shut up now and let you guys do some more chatting. But certainly feel free to discuss everything and anything not just the specific rules in here.

                              Results - ie number of runners and payouts - should definitely be included in a follow up post by organisers. They are well able to promote the event before time, so a few minutes after the fact is a basic courtesy.

                              The issue of privacy is a non-runner. Organisers only need ask the person as they're paid out winnings if it's ok to publish their name in the results. If not, 'Anon' is what's used and their privacy is protected, but we still see the payouts and the names of people who wish to be included.

                                I would like to see subsections for organisers posting upcoming tournaments.
                                e.g.
                                Casino's
                                Pub Games
                                Festivals

                                maybe also county based Subsections

                                  I had my full name plastered on the old board a few times by unthinking organisers so i have to disagree that it's a non runner. The lads here would be assuming that organisers had permission from non posters which will not always be the case. It only takes one pissed off person or someone missing out on a job due to an employer taking a dim view for this to be a serious problem. It needs to be remembered by all posters who may be unconcerned that not everyone is in the same lucky circumstances.

                                    New boards featues could stop the above, the problem is alot of names can get posted in this section due to reserve list, table draws, bloggin etc although maybe anyone posting names can look at using the deadlinks that will stop google finding those names; used alot on cousin type boards


                                    a couple of other points, i think there should be one thread per club, for weekly games (like voodoo SE etc) this should be updated in a following post with prize pools and number of runners and maybe even finishing times. i think any club advertising here should be doing this.

                                    also can we get some heading and filters like what was in the theroy section of boards for this section may cut down on alot of serching.

                                    also with regard to bigger festivals being posted on here, i think one of the questions in the charter should whether there providing bloggin on the event and where they plan to post them i know there were a couple of argurments on boards over semi blogging which really pissed off people!

                                    just my taughts on the matter

                                      This. Festivals tend to get lost among the weekly stuff going on. Speaking from both sides I'd like to able to look at Festivals seperately without having to trawl through pages of stuff to find what I'm looking for.

                                        Players normally use the Live Poker Tournament Forum to decide on what games to play and therefore I am in favour of the rigid structure.

                                        Players want transparency with consistency.
                                        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.

                                          There's some good suggestions on this thread, keep them coming please. It hasnt been forgotten about and I plan to get to work on some of the stuff early next week.

                                            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.

                                              Players want transparency with consistency.
                                              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.

                                              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.

                                                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.

                                                  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..

                                                    Yeah finishing times wouldnt be a bad idea, but come on man a 9-5er like yourself lols you dont care you will play regardless

                                                      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.

                                                                  The tourney forum on Boards while a great resource for all for getting information about events and for promoting events had its issues and led to some of the biggest dramas on the forum.
                                                                  The aim was for full transparency so that players could make an informed choice about what event to attend, hence the rigid list of criteria to promote a tournament.
                                                                  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.

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.

                                                                        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?

And also a thread dealing with event trnys, but it would be great if it were divided into a buy in sub category. I enjoy scrolling through all the tourneys but im not exactly rolled for the bigger ones and spend a lot of time searching for 100-250 buyin trnys. Just a thought! Thanks for reading!

                                                                                          couple of suggestions:
                                                                                          not necessarily for festivals but could include any decent tourney that wasn't part of a weekly/monthly schedule
                                                                                          If the calender and tournament schedule were stickied beside each other in the "tournament and events" section
                                                                                          I know they all have their own threads anyway but can be spread out over a number of pages and in two seperate sections hard to see what is on when or can miss some threads altogether.
                                                                                          Think this would help both players and promoters

                                                                                          Regarding the Tournament schedule(read it hasnt been updaded in months) i'm sure it takes a lot of effort to keep that updated constantly if there was a way for each club/casino to keep their own up to date or at the very least a simple e-mail every time they did change their schedule. Im sure it is in every clubs/casino's interest to have their schedule posted on here.

Im sure it is in every clubs/casino's interest to have their schedule posted on here.

                                                                                                                There bundled on top of each other... Perhaps if the events were categorized into areas.. Say north Dublin / South dub ... leinster coonnacht munster Ulster.. Just an idea..
                                                                                                                We tried this before and it was found not to work. We don't generally police those forums unless something is brought to our attention, so threads often ended up in the wrong place, and it was generally decided by the users of the area that the region specific forums were not a good idea.

                                                                                                                On the festivals thing Mick, same as above, if they are in the wrong place we generally won't know unless someone tells us they are in the wrong place, which no one has done. I know I rarely look in that section unless there is a reason, and I think the others are the same.

                                                                                                                Comment

                                                                                                                  I would like to see local grassroots games not affiliated with casinos or having big festival buy ins getting a chance to advertise. I think the future of the game lies in local games being capable of attracpting decent numbers and in order for to this they need a platform to advertise and protote local poker in their localities. Therefore I'd like to see boards setting aside a section for local poker tournaments with modest buy ins where local organisers can advertise their games and provide information about start times possible numbers and whether the event is going to be cancelled etc. I've tried to create a thread promoting a local game that I attend and for which I'm not associated with in any capacity except as a player. The title of the thread is Texas hold 'em tournament in Athlone Wednesday nights and I think such threads should be allowed by poker boards as it potentially can provide a fgteat service to local players to find out when and where local games are happening in their towns.
                                                                                                                  Just putting that out there.

                                                                                                                      There has always been a policy in place here where any organiser of any game, no matter how small, can post their event in the tournament forum. That is what it is for. All we ask is that people follow the specific format of advertising their game which will give the relevant information to people who may wish to play the game.

                                                                                                                      If you post a thread with details like:

                                                                                                                      Game in XYZ Pub Athlone, €50 buy in.

                                                                                                                      Then it will be deleted if spotted as it doesn't give the required detail. This is true of a large event as much as a small one. We receive no money from anyone for using this forum for their games, no matter who they are, and we would never even think of doing so.

                                                                                                                      This is all generally speaking, but there may be some specific cases (yours may be one of those, or may not be, I don't personally know) where people in the last have not provided the relevant information when asked, or have failed to address allegations of irregularities in games, and when these are not addressed posting privileges may be withdrawn. These are the only circumstances where games won't be allowed to advertise. There are also places who were previously prevented from posting for whatever reason, who subsequently engaged and provided answers and were allowed to post again.

                                                                                                                      As I said above though, I don't know what the situation is in this case as I am not familiar with it.

I'm sure someone who is more familiar with this than me will clarify later, but even from first glance, you have not followed the posting charter for tournaments.

I don't own the game or have a financial interest in it. However I would be fully willing to provide as much information as I have about my own experiences of the game which I tried to explain we're positive. Yes I'm advertising and promoting it, but this is based on my own personal experience as a player. What other information is required namely about irregularies or the like all I can provide is my own experiences playing the game which if you must know where of the highest standards of gentlemenly conduct and Integrity.
                                                                                                                        Boards needs to understand that postings given information about a tournament especially a small local one are not always by people affiliated to that tournament in a financial or organisational capacity. Very often they are based on a player wanting to get the word out about a tournament so that it increases the numbers and consequentially increases the prize pools. I'm not sure if this is advertising or just word of mouth or a players opinion. I believe boards needs to make this distinction as it will help the forum immensely by making players not advertisers as the focus of information exchange within the forum.
                                                                                                                        As regards the glennfogartyisafag name I can only apologise to those concerned and hope that boards is in the spirit of Good Friday a forgiving soul.
