XCC 2015/16: anybody interested in running it?

As you probably noticed XCC didn't start (yet). I'm sorry but I don't have the time to run it so if anyone else is interested please step up.

This is where you step in, Frank.

Thanks for all the years you put in Filipe. It was certainly appreciated.

Thanks to you both.

I still like XCC and I would definitely join it as a participant but I honestly can't commit the amount of time that it needs right now.

No, I would be a willing participant as a player though.

Come on, someone needs to step up. And yes, I realize demanding it is easy, but since I have run it before I feel like I have a right to ask someone else to do it. p

Well, considerably, but not full-time job like.

You need to pick 13 matches each week (if you want to take the same system and effort as Felipe from all over the world), put them in the system (no idea how that works, as it didn't exist when I ran it) and make a thread and inform everyone of the participants. And then probably send a reminder email to them some time during the week as well.

And after a matchday you need to put the results in the system and make/update that standings thread.

Repeat that 14 times and you have the group phase finished and do the same twice for each knockout round. p

We can help you, Homes. You have Filipe and Tiger for tips and the rest of us will chip in too. But way to take one for the team, brother!

Now, former hosts, get this man started!

How about making a thread first to see who signs up for this edition? I guess that's the start. And probably make up your mind on a start date so that you can have a date when the signing up phase ends. (Or alternatively say a number (16/24/32 etc.) of people that can participate and start when that number is reached.)

Good idea, Tiger.

IMO 24 players is the best, as we have seen when we have 32, it is bound to have some people being invisible in the middle of the matches.

I like to echo these good wishes and also shake Felipe's hand for all his work for us over the years.
