Oh, sweet. So far only "special" members have had permission to make tournaments, and they had full control already, so I wasn't aware. Thanks.

One suggestion by one of my members was pretty good and I thought I would post it here. He suggested the ability to seed members/teams in tournaments. It would be sweet if for each tournament there was the option to not seed members, seed them according to their place in the ladder (anyone not in the ladder would randomly be seeded at the end), or seed them manually. Players/teams would then be placed in the tournament according to their seed (top seeds playing the lowest seeds or receiving the byes).

I'd like this as well. It should be easy if the "swap user" icon is still available after brackets have been made. That way, you can still customize them once a tournament is in progress.

Also, I have a question about how players are currently seeded: It seems that each person is given a random number out of about 10 million or so. Why is that? Why don't the players just have a random number from 1-32, or whatever the players maximum is for a tourney? I noticed all of the round 2-77 fields in the database use this way to order spots, so why not on the first round as well? I'm no coder, so forgive me if there's a good reason for that.

What the chances of changing the Ladder's from single into team's?

For example instead of Play A challenges Play B, we want it to do Team A challenges Team B and when you click on the team it list's all the players registered with that team.

do you have any thoughts of adding these features to your script?

Outstanding job sir!!!
Sir did you get a chance to read my post? is this something that could be put into place? or plans for it?

something I find can be improved is on the ladder challanges if you add a column with the ladder name.

I have about 4 different ladders and I have about 10 challanges but I can't tell what challange is for which unless I click on the view ladder link.

It decreases probability of two players getting same slot number. I have wrote code to stop this happening but havent added it yet.

Can't seem to join a tournament once i created a team i get the following message:

You are not Leader of any team which can join this tournament. Click here to go back to the tournament.

any ideas why i would be getting this message?

EDIT: ok small problem if the selected number of players are not in the team before you join a tournament you get the above message which will confuse some members can you edit the message to say there are not enough members in the team to join this tournament please add more members, etc

Sweet.

Finally got everything going. Looks great so far. I like the furture updates, and I would even suggest maybe allowing more of a tree like structure so you can easily separate the ladders into different sections (IE Xbox, Playstation, PC) and maybe even allow a second tier for more advanced separation into game types (Sports, First Person Shooters)

I would also look at expanding the information for each team in each members personal page. That way it will be easier to see what team a member is on by clicking their profile page. Maybe even making it a mini stat on the site. Just a thought.
