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.
As a spectator writes because he enjoys it, does he really need a further reward in the form of a $2 credit?
The credit is ultimately a form of "rebate". As spectators don't pay, it's hard to justify a "rebate".
I'll put it up as a poll on the Stand-Alone Polls sub-board anyway, to see what the majority think.
I'll keep the poll open until more than half of the players on Approved List A have voted. We currently have about 160 players on Approved List A.
On a separate note:
..., for those who enjoy writing:
...., 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.
No one has taken it up yet.
