Weird......ok Allan, I'll do a re-submit of all six just for you.

Answer them quick because that will mean we can set up Round One of the Factacular Cup tonight.

Actually, I screwed up. I somehow left Allan out of the entry roster even though he entered.

Allan, my apologies. Totally my mistake.

Verified that I have sent six randoms to you and they will be included in the above qualifying round results.

Please play them as quick as you can.

BUT......if those randoms are not played in the next two hours, then you are will be seeded according to the lowest scoring players.

I GET I screwed up and promise that it won't happen again.

But the tournament's schedule cannot be hamstrung because of my goof and a possible sense of gamesmenship.

IF no results are received by you or the other slow player (saguingoira, why do you keep doing this? You are not proving anything) as at the expiry of the ORIGINAL six game qualifying round, then non-qualifying-round players will be placed accordingly within the tournament.

If it comes to that, my goof and I take full responsibility.

But the Factacular Cup seeding takes priority and must take place tonight.

Sorry Allan about your first opponent. Entirely my fault.

But the tournament must be allowed to play out regardless.

Awaiting the result. Had to default due to a little earthquake in NZ causing me to have other priorities  at the time but I see the draw would have put me up against Nemesis if I had managed to beat tallyho so the result is probably the same anyway .

Actually, it was you, JMK that gave us this when you pointed out the Wikipedia article on "seeded play", which I followed and applied.

A particularly nuanced draw means that big players face each other in earlier rounds. Thus resulting in a semi-final and final like we have this tournament.

The result might be the same because of one very skilled player. BUT, if players are eclectic as at the Final? Then that is the point.

For that, I thank you.

One of the questions that came up in the semi-final had what I would consider 2 correct answers.
Which person who died in 2010 was known as an actor?
Lynn Redgrave & Sir Norman Wisdom both came up with Redgrave being the correct answer.
While she is only known for acting & he did other things, he is still known primarily as an actor.
Could this be fixed?

Apologies if this is not the right place to bring this up.
Also for being long-winded.
