Ugh, this topic seemed to just die for a while, I guess bass forgot about it. Anyway, I'll contact bass on the weekend or earlier so this can get done.
Those questions don't seem like bad questions eric except for the last one. It's rather unnecessary as they can just send results like they normally would to bass as TO along with a VTO sending a testing results confirmation on the earlier steps.
Obviously they should be knowledgeable about tiers as well as know the obvious fact tournies have to be 4, 8, or 16 man not something like 3, 2, or 6 people. Knowing that TOs can join their own tourneys but that they should never
do it if it's obvious atm that someone else wants the spot (entering last when it's obviously unlikely another person will take up that 4th or 8th spot soon) sounds good but a lot of TOs don't join their tournaments prematurely and it appears we never had that as a serious problem.
Coherent typing skills/grammar are necessary.
Most of all we want to avoid this from happening again:

And there are LOTS of them.
At this point, it is making the server look bad. I have received complaints from MANY people on this issue. Having a bunch of immature idiots running around starting disorganized tournaments all over the place is NOT a good thing -- even if they are really nice people that are just trying to help.
I have mentioned this in the past to eric and others. I realize there was a recent "re-application" process for all TO's. But it doesn't appear to have helped very much.
If we can stay clear of that and get a active TO staff then I think we're doing well. Fortunately it looks like as far as the test goes just watching them host a four man clears a lot of that.
Uh, I'm not sure how many more questions we need to ask, I can't think of many that come off the top of my head.
