A player is missing from the dropdown list on the matchcard

You can either select New Player and put details in the match comment. Or if the admin of your league is happy for clubs to maintain their own lists, pick your club from the home page, pick player list tab and you get 2 options:
  • Add existing player - for someone already in the grading list

What permissions do secretaries ahd captains have?

  • Selecting a user as secretary does not give any rights
  • Selecting a user as a team captain does not give any rights - it just means they appear in the team captains list.
  • Having a user as a club owner means that they can input match results, update the text on the club page, and update player lists for their club.

What is match card comment and flagged matches?

Match cards have comments:
  • To enter details of any players not in the player lists (especially in leagues where they don't want the clubs to add them)
  • To enter a match report (in my league someone collates them and sends something to the local paper)
  • To enter details of adjounrments
Flagging is so that you can easily know when someone has entered a comment so you can react to it (sometimes people put things there and I didn't notice for weeks). Also worries about people putting abusive comments, so there was a thought about only allowing comments that had been seen by an organisation owner to be visible. The idea is if you click the link "Mark comments as seen" on the match card it takes it out of the flagged list, and you know you have dealt with it

What if the number of boards in a match changes?

The organisation or event owner can delete boards from a match under the admin tab. The other option is to set the result as 0-0 and both players as Default.

The owner can also add additional boards.

What is the difference between an adjustment and a penalty?

Adjustment - If a game was scored 1-0, you might need to send it off for grading as 1-0, but the score towards the match should be 0-1. So the adjustment would be -1 for A and +1 for B.

Penalty - You might just have a penalty gamepoint for some other offence, in which case, some team would be -1.
