I can't register on the Kick Off wiki

As the header says. I get some kind of warning message at the top of the register page, and there seems to be missing a lot of fields (since it says "Fields marked with a star (*) are optional", and there are no stars on the page I see). I would like to register so that I can add a picture...

Re: Nordic Championship May 24, 2008 | Results: Page 6

But what if they want the final to be a 2x10 min game? Does that mean that all the other games can't be added to the KOA database? That KOA will not "recognize" the Nordic Championship? The answer to your question is yes. Nobody's stopping anyone from playing Kick Off with any rules they ...

Re: Nordic Championship May 24, 2008 | Results: Page 6

Ok, consider this example: We play a tournament, I have beaten player A and lost to player B. We only have one round left. Player B leads the table 1 point ahead of player A and both players are expected to win their last round easily. Just before the start of the round, it turns out I have disappea...

Re: Nordic Championship May 24, 2008 | Results: Page 6

Alkis, please recognize that we have two different issues. The first issue is the database. In a database you only want results from actual games. The database is used for statistics and maybe a ranking list. The second issue is the Nordic Championship. What should the final table of this tournament...

Re: Nordic Championship May 24, 2008 | Results: Page 6

OK, consider this simple situation. I beat player A, while I lose to player B. Late in the tournament, A and B are competing to win the tournament, while I have no chance left. Now, if I left, I think everybody would feel that it would be unfair to erase my results against A and B. They both fought ...

Re: Nordic Championship May 24, 2008 | Results: Page 6

I agree, it will always be a messy situation, and there is no guaranteed golden bullet to resolve it to everybody's satisfaction. Here's another way to look at it: We have a 16 round tournament. After 8 rounds, a player leaves, for one reason or another (maybe he got sick, maybe he just didn't want ...

Re: Nordic Championship May 24, 2008 | Results: Page 6

Let me add something to clarify: There are two subjects to discuss: 1) Whether to register results in centralized official records. 2) Whether to register results in the tournament table. With regard to 1, I think the case is clear. The result of any game played under proper conditions and mutually ...

Re: Nordic Championship May 24, 2008 | Results: Page 6

For perspective, here is what is done in the chess world in a situation like this: 1) The tournament table will indeed register a win for the offended player (and a loss for the other - if two no-shows are paired, they both get a loss). 2) The game itself is NOT recorded as an official game. It has ...

Re: Nordic Championship May 24, 2008 | Results: Page 6

i am now taking a practice session with John under the most stressful circustances imaginable. 2 children 5 and 2 years old running around screaming, pushing the ko2players. I had a clear run towards goal with Barber when Harry, 5, came and run into my joystick-handling right arm. I would like to s...

Re: The sunday online tournament thread

Thanks for playing. Another funny night. I welcome people to simply drop into the chat and see if anybody is up for a game. That's how we got this tournament going at a moment's notice.

Re: KO2 Competition Version Wish List

Feature request: In Int. Friendly games, it should be possible to choose the same nation for both sides. In tournaments in Denmark, we always used the national teams (maybe due to A>B). But frequently, both sides wanted the same national team, and a draw had to be made. Because of this, total fairne...
