Looks like over at AM.com they are going to copy Read-The-Round Crying or Very sad

I hope it is a different format because here it is something unique about MW Neutral

I really don't think their board is organized enough to do what we did for RTR. By that I mean making sure members don't cheat, finding a dedicated RTR team, ...
Are they just going to have one topic for it? lol

It's a shame as it was indeed something very unique.

It won't work aswell over there, because the organisation of the board and the layout is a shambles. Bit disappointed they seem to steal a few of our ideas. Oh well.  Rolling Eyes

I think they need some staff in place as well, or do they already? Rob will be overworked at this rate.

It's almost impossible to do it on your own. Also, how will they do it? They don't have any categories.

They do, it's just not that obvious or clear and you can't view a single category at a time.

Well, so their categories aren't clear enough to play RTR.

This is what I posted on AM.com

As a member of the Content Team on Murraysworld and one of the 3 workers on RTR, I think you all totally underestimate what you need to do with read the round. Think about time zones and us having to post up often terribly late or very early, scores being added up, weekly and monthly winners (In our MW Newsletter) and decisions on the tournament and players to predict.

The format needs to be completely changed as we have put a tremendous amount of work into it and you guys expect Rob to be able to do everything and offer prizes, it's a bit much.

I guess i'm just annoyed about the thoughts of stealing an idea from the other Murray site.
