What I've decided to do:

1. Extend the deadline to Friday at 11:59 pm
2. If it is clear to me that one member is trying harder than the other to play their games, I'll move that person on automatically.
3. If I can't tell, I'll flip a coin. Whoever wins will move on. I don't know what else to do.
4. I'll talk to the administrators and see if I can convince them to let me change your avatar to that of a famous quitter.

I'll send out notices to the following people as soon as I eat dinner:

C'mon, guys, let's finish this up.

I've been trying. I've tried a few days, but I'm not sure what the deal is.

a suggestion for round 2: ditch the current bracket and redo it according to compatible schedules. sportsguy and i are never around at the same time and will be lucky to get past the one game we've already played. once all the round 2 advancers are known, everyone that's still in should post something like 'weeknights are better', 'weekends are better', or 'doesn't matter' and then do pairings based on responses, keeping it consistent as much as possible at the half or quadrant level. AA?

Yeah I was also going to suggest it should have been doe based off of time zone. It was hard for me and lucky because by the time he was home from work and ready to go I had to go to bed.

The time zone suggestion makes sense. But I would want each of the 8 who are moving on to agree. It only seems fair.

Also, I'll need to know where each person is from. That's about the closest to compatable schedules that I can do, I think.

But only with everyone's approval.

Time zone is fine by me. CST here. Weekday after 8 p.m. or anytime on the weekend is good.

I honestly don't care what we do. It's your call AA since it's your tournament. I think everyone will go along with whatever.

Timezone works for me. Pacific here. Most any day except for Wednesdays after 4 local time works for me.

If I can ever get my games in or if I make it to the next round, time zone sounds great.
