Yap but you don't need Spelling , Punctuation , Grammar and Syntax here and that's the beauty .
Sure, if you're just doing write ups, but not if Yip Weng wants to appoint you Editor-In-Chief.
Editor in Cheif is a Job that you are paid on and i believe there is when you are more careful when writing . Is the same thing when you are out with friends doing all the LAs and the Ah Yo but is diff when you are at work . Same here , i have got reports to submit weekly and those are strictly with Spelling , Punctuation , Grammar and Syntax CHECKED before submitting.
Hurt me with the Truth but Never Comfort me with a Lie
Currently, if no one else adds a post-game report or comment before then, I put up a thread two days after the game, in the morning. If I did not play in the game, it is a bare thread, inviting others to comment. Either way, I point out that the first to add a report or comment will be credited $2.
The schedule thread for the following week's game is put up immediately after, and in any event, 5 days before that game.
From now on, if I have to put up a bare thread, I'll do so the evening/night before, that is, a day after the game.
If I come across a reference to a game on another thread after the game is played but before the bare thread is due, I will put up the bare thread even earlier. I've done this twice recently:
The next two highest are both for Saturday Turf City games, 391 for 15 October 2011, and 343 for 12 November 2011. The only other game with numbers above 300 is that on 22 August 2011, a Sunday Turf City game. With 317 page views, it held the record for a long time.
Players should be more competitive to be the first to post a report, rather than being overly competitive on the pitch. There's no prize for winning a game, but there is a reward for being the first to post a report.
The post-game reports and comments are also useful for the following purpose:
.... Rajiv, is there a reason why we can only post post-game reports so late after the match. David has a good memory and a great description, but it would be easier to post thinks immediately after the match or at the latest the next morning?
Any approved player can start a thread on the report board anytime after the game. If you look at the report board, you'll see quite a few have.
If no one does, I start the thread about a day later, to try encourage the players to add a comment or report.

at present, do the team selectors get any rebate? (something like the $2 for writing the reports)
was just wondering if it makes sense to ask the team selectors to write the match reports as well (since they selected the team, they are more likely to be the ones most familiar with all the players). in return, they can get the rebate for writing the report.
just a suggestion, pls ignore if it dun make sense
Anyone can do the first report Clarence, it's not limited to team selectors/captains, nor was it ever intended to be. They're two separate things. In fact, if you follow this thread from earlier on, the credit for the first report has been around a lot longer than the credit for team selectors/captains. The credit for team selectors/captains came in later. The reason I wait until the first report is up before crediting team selectors/captains is so that I know that there were no major incidents touching upon their responsibilities.
I have no objections in principle to giving the $2 credit for a first report to someone who isn't playing but comes down to watch the game. However, the credit is stated to be for the first player, which implies someone who plays in that game.
If anyone thinks spectators should also be entitled to the $2 credit for the first report, add your views below.
Unless and until there is a change in the position, spectators can still provide reports or comments, whether they are the first to do so or not, because they enjoy doing so, or just because want to.
I think it is only fair that a spectactor would get $2 credit for the first report. We are already glad that a spectactor would take the effort to show up and often they have the most insightful, balanced and often funniest reports...
...., until further notice, I'll give $1 credit to any approved player who provides a first report under the OPSAGE category of any game he plays in (excluding our regular men's games or team matches, which are reported under the Men's Games category) or watches.
I think it makes more sense for any author who would like to do a session report to do so the same night after the session. The game is still fresh in the mind, and it’s a useful way to unwind after the game. ....
If I don’t see a session report up by the following morning, I’ll put up a bare summary. ....
After each game, any registered member can put up a thread about the game on the Reports board, ....
From next month onwards, I will wait an extra day before putting up the report thread for games in which I did not play, to allow any registered member more time to do so. If the thread has not been put up by the second day after the game, I will do so, ....
With minor adjustments, this remained the case until
Sometimes, after a game, a player adds a comment about the game on the schedule thread. I will move the comment to a new thread on the Reports board, and add a post for the line ups and any other relevant information. This has happened several times.
From today onwards, I will put up the report thread as soon as I can after the game kicks off. This will allow any player to add a report/comment while the game is still fresh. Of course, it may be delayed if I am playing, or at the game, or otherwise engaged at the time.
