Before posting make sure you are aquainted with our forum rules.
So I belong to the group of CurveFever players who are very active at the forum and I'm little bit pissed off with the situation as it is now. I check the forum every day and found the last two days at off-topic section 4 posts(3 new of them) which are connected to unofficial "tournaments". But for everybody who takes a closer look at this and was also active at the past, it's clear that this is more or less a joke. I mean those "tournaments" organized by Boss'.(Jaan Otter) are simply normal matches, where somebody announced to play a certain setting at a set time. Usually nobody or very few people comment there and >90% of the players who participate are friends of the host or randomly join the room at this time. If you check it out, you'll see that it's announced just a few hours(or even less) before the "tournament" starts and that there is absolutly nothing(in my opinion) about that which could be called tournament. The only thing I see are several new topics who spam the forum and push away topics containing usefull content or topics which have atleast a meaning(Selfietopic, Nice Ways, ...).
Because of the forumspam and the pointless announcement of normal matches(this is not a tournament) I would like to request conditions for competitions to be called "tournaments".
If I check out the forum for unofficial tournaments, I find very good examples which really deserved to be called tournaments, as example:
http://curvefever.com/content/unofficial-gspeed-ffa-tournament-24102015 96 participants + prizes + announced 3 weeks before + very structured + well organized
http://curvefever.com/content/unofficial-2v2v2v2-green-speed-tournament 48 participants + announced 2 weeks before + very structured + well organized (same for 2nd 2v2v2v2 tournament which even had prizes)
http://curvefever.com/content/unofficial-ffa-tournament-2014 93 participants + big prizes + announced more than 2 weeks before + very structured + well organized
http://curvefever.com/content/curve-fever-world-cup-winners 181 participating players + prizes + announced long time before + very structured + well organized
I could list a lot more, but I think you got what I mean. Those tournaments were well organized, announced long time before, had a lot of participating players, most of them had prizes and they had a clear structure and organisation.
So my suggestion for future tournaments would be the following:
- announcement atleast 10 days before it is going to be played
- should have atleast 40 players*
The goal of this is to decrease the spam at the forum with useless topics and to encourage the hosts of tournaments to do a good organisation.
How do you think about this idea? Do you agree with me? Would you want to add something or change some details of my suggestions? Or are you completly against this idea?
Looking forward to your comments.

* (usually you need prizes to get a lot of players to play tournaments or you get a very good organisation which leads users to play this tournament)
