Very sorry, but... Sun, 15 March 2009 18:01
Hi there,

today I saw the mess in the french forum.
And truth to be told, I'm getting p*ssed off here!!!

The job as TD is not easy and without Boo, Lolotte, Jethro L and me you would have NO TOURNAMENT!

And if there is a problem, everyone can contact us via PM. That would be ok but to accuse the TD's in the forum is just a bad behavior and WE are not willing to allow that!

Because of some issues Jethro had quit is job.
But he is the only one who can translate everything! So without JL for me it makes no sense to stay.
Each day of the tourney I have 15 - 20 windows open with questions. And I am not sure, if the americans or germans has the possibility to ask the other TD's. Because of languageproblems.

And I don't want any discussions with players! Just shut up and play your games. And let us make the job here. If not, everyone is of course allowed to leave.

A tourney should be fun! But this makes me sad and mad!

And finally I hope Monette will continue her job as Cpt. of the Matous.
I have heard, that we have had the same thing, as someone else was TD.
If it was ok for last year, it should be also ok now!!!

Jethro, please stay, cause I need you here. Players who don't undestand any french, need you! Otherwise I will quit too...

Nayeli

I think it would be very unfortunate if Jethro and/or Nayeli quit as TD.

There are lots of advantages to having a 4-person committee as TD. For one thing, it means that the participants in the tourney have greater access to the TDs, since there is likely to be at least one TD who speaks their language and whom they know pretty well. Also, the whole reason we have a TD in the first place is because disputes sometimes arise. With 4 people as TD, there is a much better chance that any dispute can be resolved fairly, rather than at the whim of just 1 or 2 people.

I do not read French & I don't know what the specific nature of these complaints are. But I do know that being TD is quite a bit of work and it's a very thankless job. If our 4 TDs had not volunteered for this job, there would be no tourney. And, if 2 of them get driven away because of relentless criticism, then this will probably be the last Team Cup we ever have because I can't imagine that anyone would be willing to step up and do the job next year.

I echo what Nayeli said: this tournament is for fun. People need to remember this.

o.k...

i don't know what the issues are, which let Jethro quit his job in the TD, because i have some problems with the French language. Speaking French is no problem, but understanding... Confused Wink

1,2,3,4,5,6... many, many players in the tournament. Language-problems for me, problems with the rules for others, problems, problems, problems... and i'm sure the TD is doing their best to solve them all.
(Hmmm, o.k. last time i had problems with bad cards... Nay just said i should stop crying and plaaaaaaay! So i've plaaaaaayed! Sometimes she's so mean Wink Rolling Eyes)

TD: Lots of work, no glory. But Boo, Lolotte, JethroL and Nay do the very thankless job and we can have a good time in a gof-tourney. You should remember this, when you start to criticize them.

All i want to say is, that the tournament is big fun for me. And it should be fun for you! But without TD, no tournament-fun. Then I will start crying again and there's no one who'll say i should stop crying and plaaaaaaay!!!

1,2,3,4,5,6... players were maybe rude to you Jethro, i don't know anything about it, but 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60... players like your work in the TD. So please ignore 1,2,3,4,5,6... players and staaaaaaaaaaaay!!!!!!!

And to make the TD-job a little more thankful...

Thank you TD! Great job! Smile

I love all the TDs and think they should be the presidents of their respective countries!

For the first 2 weeks of this tourney, the entire YWN team was cursed with the most horrible cards imaginable. This week, Dudefish and I wrote complimentary posts towards our TDs, and suddenly our cards have been much better. Coincidence?
