Re: Our own new fantasy tennis game and website: the construction site

I am sure we can trust Tony with $75 in the Bahamas, for that I might join him smile . Great idea that needs some serious discussion, and for the cost of a feed of fish n chips per person we can have some serious fun. Of course in Australia I might have to 2nd mortgage the home, but who cares, by the time the Mrs finds out, I will be in the Bahamas...

Re: Our own new fantasy tennis game and website: the construction site

Love the C3P0 pic, Snolly.

So once Tono gets this set up (he can start it any time now, I think) then maybe $5 - $10 USD per person should cover it, no problem.  Once we have the domain, the serious work can begin.  I'm lost as to how we can help Thexc with the heavy lifting.

Re: Our own new fantasy tennis game and website: the construction site

You can count me in as well. I am ready to send those 10$ ,or some other amount, to Tony when he gives the precise instructions about that.

It's probably a bit early about that but I also think that Arnaud suggested too many points for the final rounds.

Thanks Arvis.

By the way, I'm dominating the Yoda Crew in the WTA Draw Challenge at the moment. big_smile

Re: Our own new fantasy tennis game and website: the construction site

Points were just thrown in like this, based on the R2D2 format. I think points for the later rounds are even less than what we have in R2D2. We can decide later on the points system.

The important thing is to get the domain and start working on it. Just liek Arvis, I don't really know how we can actually help Thexc for this.

So we have to make a list of who's in for the funds. If Tony is taking care of this, I guess it is easier if he pays first the couple bucks and we give it back to him once we know exactly how much it costs per person.

Re: Our own new fantasy tennis game and website: the construction site

Not sure it is fair to ask Tony to front the money for us.  We need to set an amount and all send that to the paypal account before hand.

Re: Our own new fantasy tennis game and website: the construction site

Yeah but what if we don't know the exact initial amount?

We should make a list. I don't have any paypal account...

For the points system, here is the lowest we could go for:
Could do something like that for the GS:
R128 1pt, R64 2pts, R32 3pts, R16 4 pts, QF 6pts, SF 8pst, F 10pts
Masters 1000: R96: 1pt, R64/56/48 1pt, R32 2pts, R16 3pts, QF 4pts, SF 6pts, F 8 pts
500: R48/32: 1pt, R16 2pts, QF 3 pts, SF 4pts, F 6pts

I'd say the one I posted in the first post should be the maximum..

Re: Our own new fantasy tennis game and website: the construction site

So here are the people that are ready to participate in financially (made it clear):

Tony, Arvis, BP, Adunar, Edu, Snolly, Dragan.

Jamie, Mike and Thesc seem to be in as well but didn't mention if they were ready to send the 5-10 $.

So we're at least 7 and up to 10.

I'd say we shoudl all send 10$ to Tony. If there's too much then be it and we will have a couple extra bucks in the locker for the future.

Re: Our own new fantasy tennis game and website: the construction site

Sweet, send me your money gentlemen, I reckon $100 each should cover it. wink lol

LOL@Snolly nice comment early Snolly.

I will probably just use the wife's paypal account that she already has set up, she tells me Paypal is safe and easy to set up for those of you who don't have it, I'll let you all know once I'm ready to receive your $10 ok.....if there ends up being extra in the pot we can just utilise that for the next season....or maybe offer some Tono Toffee as prizes. wink.....anyone have a decent Toffee recipe. hmm

That really made me laugh, for some reason.  I would definitely enjoy some "Tono Toffee."

Re: Our own new fantasy tennis game and website: the construction site

I believe there's some kind of fee Paypal deducts when money is transferred internationally, around 5%? So $100 will become $95 but still plenty for the first year.

Once Tono has enough for the domain ($11), it can be purchased here: https://www.namecheap.com/domains/regis … llenge.com

I'm not sure if there are faster ways of communicating, perhaps with Skype, Google Chat or Facebook? I can also provide remote control help for the set-up process on the domain and hosting.

Re: Our own new fantasy tennis game and website: the construction site

WHAT!!! $11 for the domain, how am I supposed to come up with that kinda cash thexc, far out. lol.....I can organise to purchase the domain this week then. smile

I've already got BHP and Arnie as friends on facebook so adding more of the Yoda Crew wouldn't be a problem for me.

All right, when buying the domain, it may ask you to put in nameservers, but just leave those and any other additional features/components blank/skip them so only the domain is needed right now.

Re: Our own new fantasy tennis game and website: the construction site

Will this be bought under a name or organization?  We should all pledge to give Tono $1.00 towards the domain as there is about 11 of us.  That way we all have vestment.

Good question though I'm not sure how official an organization can be unless you go through all the paperwork and legal channels of registering one.

Re: Our own new fantasy tennis game and website: the construction site

Count me in for this!! smile
sounds awesome!

For the point allocation... what if we used the ATP points?
so for 1000 it's 1000, 600, 360, 180, 90, 45, etc... and for 500 half that...
Thots?
