Seamus, you don't have to worry about calculating anything at all, I will do all these works, because it would be my game and I would know more easily the rules which Iw ould make.

You don't have to worry at all about time consuming! You can do your simple and easy game, and this would be good. I will sure participate in your game as well.

At the same time, I would do the games which I told you about and this would be fair enough, also this would make everyone satisfied

About the Cup, where players will meet each other.. I have to tell you that this game will not start at the start of the year, but at the middle, when we will have enough members to start it.. You really don't have to worry about it, I know how to manage these things.
As I said, I have my experience already, and this would help soo much!

About the prizes, I really have no problem to contribute for the prizes for my games. I can do that very well, and very good prizes as well

At least, I thought I can tell you what I think

Rossoneri and Kyara, before you get to ahead of anything find out from David what he wants as he runs the site and ultimatly it is his decision as to what will happen. All I did was give my opinion. The decision is totally up to David as to which or if both games will be played.

David it is all in your hands, so let us know when you get a chance.

OK,
after some thought about this topic, and without wanting to upset anyone, I've decided that all competitions will be run.

The problem is that this forum will remain ONLY for the SAPL, and it should clearly be stated that this is the official competition, while the others will either be ran in a sub forum of this forum, in the Soccer forum, or in its own forum [unlikely - we'll see]. So, we have three options for Rossoneri's leagues to be ran:

> a sub forum of this forum

> in the Soccer forum

> in it's own forum. If this will happen, the two predictions forums will be separated from the Community category and put in their own category named Prediction Leagues.

My main concern is that people should not confuse the official SAPL with the others and the prizes given for each competition.

Regards,
David

Sounds good to me. I thinks that the best way to make the destinction is the keep scharatz and mine game in The Seria A Predictions league and to either give Rossoneri's game either his own forum or run it out of the soccer forum, in a sub forum.

If they are all grouped in the same forum, people will get confused. It is almost August, so we will have to get it all set up soon.

Let me know what you decide to do so I can work on it w/ scharatz.

Thank you sooo much David
I'm really glad to be given this chance.

About the place where this game should be played:
As you said, you don't want the people to be confused between my game and the official game. So, maybe these prediction games can have its own forum. Or a subforum from this forum. Maybe the own forum can be better, since the confusion will be less?
Or something like that.. Just a suggestion

Sooner, I will try to clarify all the rules for these games. And I will do my best to make them successful. And I will also think of some good prizes.. But no BMW or Milan Channel subscription

David & schartaz I have been working on the rules for the official SAPL and here they are. Let me know what you think if they are OK as is, if there is anything that should be added, and if something should be changed.

RULES for the Seria A Prediction League


1. Each week a new thread will be started on Monday by the moderators with a list of the upcoming weeks games. In this thread you should post your predictions on the what you think the actual out comes of the games will be. The easiest way is to copy/paste the list of games and to just insert the results that you think will happen.

Example: Milan 3-1 Udinese
Empoli 4-0 Inter, and so on... Listing all of the games and scores you predict.

2. Scoring: Scoring will be based on correct winner and correct result, being added up weekly until the end of the Season. One point will be awarded for the correct winner and three points will be awarded for the correct result.

Example:
If you predict Milan 3-1 Udinese and Empoli 4-0 Inter
and actual results are Milan 3-1 Udinese and Empoli 5-0 Inter.
You would receive 4 points - 3 for picking Milan as the winner and
predicting the correct score and you would get 1 point for getting the correct winner, but not the correct result of the Empoli/Inter Game.

3. Predictions MUST be entered before the start of the weekends games. Any post that is received after the start of the games will be discounted. Also, any post edited after the start of the games will also be discounted and will not count towards the overall total.

4. A Sticky Thread will inserted into the Forum Seria A Prediction League with a running total of how each member is doing overall. This will be updated after each weekeds games and is just there to show the overall point total each participant has. This thread is not for discussions, just to show how everyone is doing overall.

5. The weekly total will be found in the thread for that week after the games have been finished and the weekly threads will remain open after the scores have been calculated so that people can talk about how they did the previous week.

6. The Champions League and Coppa Italia will also be added to the contest when the reach the appropriate stages of the competitions. The champions league will begin starting in the group stages and the Coppa Italia will begin in the 1/8 finals. Because these games are during the week they will have a separate thread each week in the same Seria A Prediction League Forum. This makes it easier for the mods and participents to enter their predictions and to calculate the results. (This will be done to prevent people from posting their CL and Coppa Italia predictions on Monday, the games happen on Wed. The results are added up then in the same thread later they post the Sera A prediction for the same week. If this occurs the mods will have to go back and check everything for correct times and edits. To prevent this the CL and Coppa Italia will be included, but just in a different thread than the league games for that week. All of the predictions league, CL, and Coppa Italis will be located in the Seria A Prediction League Forum)

7. In the case of a tie at the end of the season the winner will be determined by the following: 1. Number of results predicted correctly. If still tied then it will go to 2. The number of Milan games with the correct winner.

8. Prizes: Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 winners. The member who has the highest number of points will be given 1st pick of the prizes. The member with the second highest number of points will get second pick, and third places get last pick. Prizes are yet to be determined.

Below is an short example of how the game will be set up:

Week one league results (which would be posted in the thread of that week)
scharatz 15 points
seamus 10 points
david 12 points

So the 1st sticky (after the 1st week) would read:
scharatz 15 points
seamus 10 points
david 12 points

week 2 league results (which would be posted in the thread of that week)
scharatz 15 points
seamus 13 points
david 15 points

Then the mods would edit the post in the 1st stickey accordingly to:
scharatz 30 points
david 27 points
seamus 23 points

Week three league results (which would be posted in the thread of that week)
seamus 15 points
David 12 points
Scharatz 13 points
Week three CL & Cup results (which would be posted in the thread of that week)
David 6
Scharatz 6
Seamus 3

Then the mods would edit the post in the 1st stickey accordingly to:
scharatz 47 points
david 45 points
seamus 41 points

An so on, and so on...

Let me know what you think, not much time left so I want to get this finalized.

ps. David when did you make forzza azurri a mod in players.? I don't mind at all as he is a good guys and knows his stuff so cool with me, I needed the help anyway as I have been so busy at work. Just kinda curious as I didn't notice until today.
