As per Ras, we the TM community will take a vote on the following:

Should the TM community have a Ranked DDM every Sunday on the community server?

Should the TM community have a Clan Battle every 4th Sunday on the community server?

My reasoning is that I would love to get excited about doing a ranked battle every week. I know that I may not be able to attend everyone but others will. The ones that really want the points will make sure that they are there.

Remember it is only for 1hr once a week. Letís do it.

Quoting your better 2/3rd:

"How about 1st and 3rd Sundays are RANKED, 2nd Sunday is for fun, 4th Sunday is CLAN BATTLE and if there is a month of Sundays, then that is another fun day."

Sounds good to me.

how would the "fun" one differ from the ddm? Just not ranked right? (sounds good)

1st and 3rd sunday sounds like the best idea. So Ras doesn't have that much work to do to update the ladder.

The fun one could just be a non-ranked DDM or it could be a MOD day. Play Storm one day, or play 85 weapons SSO, or play Anarchy, or whatever the latest DDM mod is. For some, it would mean downloading stuff, but if we put out a calendar there would be plenty of time to download stuff (or bum a burned CD from friends).

Ras's suggestion sounds like a great compromise. I wouldn't want to end up with only one, in essence, ranked DDM. That takes into account the fact that I will most likely just be cannon fodder for most of the rest of you. Though I can always hope for a miracle.

To be fair, I quoted Sue's specific plan.

I'd like one of the fun days to be an 85 weapon day. But there seems to be a quite a few cheapskates still using the original Pentium, Riva TNT video cards, and oh so fast EDO memory. Despite their dogged determination to prove to the world that their $3500 investment was as "future proof" as they had predicted, their 'puters just can't keep up.

Coax: I spend 2-3 hours doing the race ladder results every week. What would Ras have to do...3 battles, 9 stats and then skill. What's it take him...maybe a 1/2 hour?

Par: I could agree with you but I am willing to compromise.

All: as for a ranked DDM this coming Sunday...well...I was just talking to Susan and it looks like we need to have some more discussion. Though I am willing to go for it. It is the 3rd Sunday.

If LogScan were installed, Ras wouldn't have to do anything
Perhaps I should start a new thread, but I will mention it here. Should we ask for LogScan on the Community Server only. We know there are people who don't want it on the LDA stock server, but since this is for DDM's and for RANKED DDM's, where previously we did results by screenshots, and people who had to disconnect lost their frags, maybe LogScan would be a good compromise.
Maybe, just maybe, Killer could add into his tables what Coax/Ras already has and future results could just get compiled there. Whay say you?

Now Devil, Coax wasn't being serious. You noted the smiley face perhaps? But what the heck:

It's worse than you think Devil. Sometimes Coax gets to it before I do, so I do nothing. So yes, you are an awesome little worker ant. Your queen must be very proud. Is there anything else you need reassurance about by way of knowing you do it more and/or better than I? I'm here to help. LOLOL! :^P :^)

And you should see how I clean....clean...clean...clean. Everything must be clean and put away. Scrub that floor, vacuum that carpet, dust those picture frames.

And I will let you in on a little secret...I enjoy cleaning.

Thus...clean...clean...clean...scrub that sink...wipe that countertop...polish that brass...shine the silver...bath those kids...clean...clean...clean...

I wouldn't be surprised if she did Killer.

Seeing as I'm not available 2 out of four Sundays, AND the fact that most of our family get-togethers fall on the Sunday's I'm not working, I'll just follow the majority vote, and show when I show..and who knows when that will be!!
