Player of the Month Program
We are pleased to announce the launch of the Player of the Month program in Eliters on a 3-month trial basis.
There will be two Player of the Month Categories: League and Eliters. The elements used for each selection are a combination of tangible and subjective factors. The calculation is fully automated, and no discussion or appeal for the selections will be permitted.
Leagues Player of the Month
One Player of the Month will be nominated for each Active League. If the Top Player in a League does not achieve certain minimum points, the award will be withheld for that month in that League. A certain player may only be Player of the Month once per year in a given league.
Each League Player of the Month will be awarded a 250 YEPs Bonus. The Player ID will show on the League Book of Records and announced in the clubs and Monthly Newsletter. Winners are chosen using elements extracted from that leagues' Stats during the month (listed in no particular order):
- Total Tourneys played
- Total Events Tourneys played
- EDS periods played
- TOC, Decathlon, Marathon Championships earned
- Notes by TDs
- Notes by other players (refer to the Players Notes System below)
Eliters Player of the Month
One Eliter of the Month will be nominated for Eliters. Each League Player of the Month is eligible to be chosen for the overall honor; however, the winner does not have to be a League Player of the month, as activity in multiple Eliters leagues is a factor.
Each Eliters Player of the Month will be awarded a 1000 YEPs Bonus. The ID will appear on the Main Page, Hall of Fame and announced in the clubs and Monthly Newsletter. A certain player may only be the Eliter Player of the Month once per year. Winners are chosen using elements from each league (listed above) in addition to the following Eliters-wide elements during that month:
- Olympics Gold Medalist, ELIC Championships
- Total Active Days that month
- Number of Referrals (Guests and Premium)
- Player Premium Membership if Gold Plus
Players Notes System
A Note Link will be added against each of the Players' IDs on the tourney page. This feature is only available for registered players in the Tourney (while the tourney is still in progress). Clicking on the Players ID opens a simple Player Notes form on a separate page with the ID, League, and Tourney ID. You may choose a specific category and also add detailed comments.
- Positive notes: Friendly, Supportive to New Players, Honest Player, Serious Player, Skilled Player, Fast Player, High Sportsmanship.
- Negative notes: Rude to Other Players, Disrespectful to other members, Harassed Other Players, Slow Player, Dishonest Player, Unserious Player, Unskilled Player.
What this means:
- You don't have to note everyone
- You don't have to note anyone
- When you come across a player who shows great sportsmanship or simply starts on time and plays without interruptions, or is a gracious loser or helps a new player - then acknowledge them through a note.
- Conversely, you have the opportunity to make a note if there is slow play, brb interruptions, sore loser, whatever.
- These notes are completely confidential - not even league admins have access to them
- These notes are quite separate and distinct from TD notes
This will only be effective when everyone uses this feature in the spirit it is intended to work - to identify those players who are truly worthy of the Player of the Month title.
We all realize this system could easily be abused and that is why we have the three month trial period. It's all up to us to make it work....
