I gotta say its time to lay this to rest..You are talking 20 odd people still remotely interested and its not going to get any better is it.

I have said before its time for those still interested to play in a singles league..one for each type..for those reliable to still turn up.
I'd play in all types including the daft game without pockets.

maybe 10 per league might be what to expect.

Just an idea.

I agree. 2 leagues of ten. A and B league. 3 of each of the main type and 1 game of carom and 1 of power.

I meant seperate leagues to give us lots of games...an arc, reg, orig, carom and power.

Like the idea of maybe a first and second division.Do it random to start...so say dvz in league 2 till he gets promoted lol for example
..
Just be fun ...i like to think i might make champions league in orig(lol) but face a doomed relegation battle in carom..

could do killer league as well more points for a win less for 2nd , 3rd etc..although logistically harder to get opponents on at the same time.

Not many people post, thats not them saying not interested With the pool league slowly dipping as well and many players there still loving clan life i would think some would come here whether they bad or good just for some more games.

True but if people were interested then we wouldn't be struggling set after set. Posting i can guess who is interested (e.g. sarahh) however as said, i can't read their mind.

About Pool the Snooker league has "always" compensated for Pool Clans as they're more successful than us (Seb knows), that is why we only had one league as many Snookerers played in every Pool League and if we expanded then it would be more games which was a bad thing as you had potential 8 games in 2 weeks minus Cups including Snooker and extra leagues added two. At first it was just FCL, Thanks to Snooker FBL was born then Chris created SL after Flumpy folded FPL

^ I do like the Pool Leagues but thats 100% true.

About recruiting on Pool, i did post an SOS on Scorpions sort of and explained how things was but no responses however with the arguing Pool has (some i'm involved in), i won't have politics on here as about completing rather than winning, always has been. Snooker is usually peaceful as well while some Poolers would be good for us, If a bad egg comes then it could jeopardize our good name.

Overall i'm still siding with Kili as 20-30 names were interested before and look where we are. Struggling set after set, having to allow quarantine and clans sign new players just to avoid defaults. If people were genuinely interested then it wouldn't be this bad. I know people can have breaks but some has been off for months which suggests they shouldn't be in a clan.

Just don't want next season to be more of the same, interested now, inactivate later and feel the league has less prestige this season too. Could be time to let her go and remember the league from 2010-2015 when it was popular and could do unofficial clan related events as well and try and restore things and if that works i could bring it back.

I'd be up for that

If league folds (and probably will) then nothing stopping you guys from running a league of your own if you can get the numbers.

Hey.
I agree with Kili. Continuing like it is atm just makes no sense. So I would also lay it to sleep and see if interest comes back one day. Sad but true.

Could be right, i know Jay wants me to continue and wants Pool involved but i don't believe in continuing because Pool is likely to fold and come here. That's catering for Pool again. Usually Pool doesn't think about Snooker in their operations and if i try and suggest some Snooker elements, i usually got "This isn't Snooker, This is Pool" and we mentioned and catered for Pool without a second thought.

It reminds me of people want me to start season too early because Pool was "On a Break" but Pool wouldn't care about us (except those here playing) but i said No because its two separate sites and do it in my own time and did get some stick for that decision.

I do like Pool very much and enjoyed the league there but Snooker does cater for Pool too much and should think what is right for us (Snooker Players + Poolers who play here) for a change.

It seems like ranting about Pool and part right but i don't want to continue if we're struggling as had the interest and just gone pear shaped. Seb didn't believe it was right fetching it back so soon but i did and i don't regret it and had some success but maybe he was right all along.

Think folding is the best option, i know people will be bored but i need to do what i feel is right for the league regardless of feelings.

Would be good if nick could do it all in 1 site?
I'd be up for a Singles League if it came to it.
Only problem would be some players just not able to meet due to time zones. Guess the weekends would be best for any sort of chance to play each other

True about time zones but an issue in any competition, had two of them in my tour lately so had to swap fixtures.

About Nick he generally only does updates and maintains the site, the only time he was involved is when him and janmb did the activity tracker together, jan did the coding and nick stored on the site. I'd rather not merge as Pool is all about politics and arguments and Snooker is about completing games and peaceful generally. If site was merged it would be ruined.

I won't ever allow politics to be in Snooker Clans, refusing as you're winning etc. I know i have done it on Pool but the latest one we wasn't at fault until the final two days. Only in those circumstances would i accept a politic win as other team would realistically be punished for lack of effort.

No politicing can be involved if you use set dates and times

Its been good fun and would be great to do it again, my main comment as a newcomer to the clans would be to bear in mind that some people will be new and don't know how its supposed to work. Even I can see that welcoming in new players is not only important for keeping things going, but for the site in general.

Roll on the next one!

Edit - forgot something - there is no need for the "clan list for each fixture" thing, if captains just keep it up to date who is in and out, makes life easier for all

It's standard procedure, same with pre season friendlies, comes with the territory

The League will fold when Cups are decided.

Not being awkward at all, just want to learn, can you explain what the point of sending a copy of the player list each time is? Its not like its a mystery
