To Vote or not to Vote
Actually, it is a serious question. We all see the vote buttons on the tourney page, but most of us ignore them, unless someone really cheeses us off. The votes truly are important, as they allow the powers that be to see patterns across all the leagues. Positive notes are just as important as negative votes.
All players registered in a tourney have the options to vote on their peers as well as evaluating the hosting tourney director.
The most common question is - "why is there no vote against my own name?". Well, because you cannot vote for yourself. But you absolutely can recognize good (or poor) sportsmanship, etc. These votes all count when the player of the month is selected.
A Vote 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 Votes form on a separate page with the ID, League, and Tourney ID. You may choose a specific category and also add detailed comments.
- Positive votes: Friendly, Supportive to New Players, Honest Player, Serious Player, Skilled Player, Fast Player, High Sportsmanship.
- Negative votes: Rude to Other Players, Disrepectful to other members, Harassed Other Players, Slow Player, Dishonest Player, Unserious Player, Unskilled Player.
You can also provide feedback on the TD's performance - this is taken into account for monthly evaluations and also for the TD of the month award. If you feel more details are appropriate, you can simply add them to your evaluation and they will be reviewed by the league administration.

Bottom line, play nice, play often, and be Elite!
Your vote absolutely counts - remember, if you don't vote you shouldn't ever complain!
