    You like them? Phew, the one below the drivers standings will be the constructors table but obviously I can't fill that in just yet and the one below that will be saying who is in what team.

    Also can anyone get hold of Fishfash to see if he's interested as I'm he would be seen as he did such a fantastic job with organising and racing in the previus one.

    I'm sure he'll see this soon enough Nev. But if you can't get hold of him and need to ask anything, then you can ask me too =P, I organised the 3rd GTP F1 World Championship :tup:

    Also, although it doesn't make that much difference, I think you should give people the numbers in the Championship based on the Championships of last season, like they do in F1. It doesn't really make a difference, but just thought I'd give my opinion lol.

    No problem lol. With two full Championships completed (one of which I organised), and coming second in them both by essentially a point each time, and then just under half a Championship, which consisted of some more good results, I'd say I have some good experience under my belt, and hopefully I can turn that into me winning the final Championship this season...will be VERY tough though!

    My only recommendation with those tables is to change the font colour for the text.
    Basic HCI princinples man, always use contrasting colours :p.

    Use white or something to contrast with the red, makes it easier to read and probably better for certain colour blind people (if they do indeed read this thread).

    Erm..and I woudn't use yellow for "4th and below" positions, seeing as you've already used yellow for the background.
    If the race(s) is held at 10pm I won't be able to make it.

    Okay, thanks for your table recomendations, I will update it now. I think we will do 2 15 lap races at 11:00pm instead because more people could probably join then.

    Obviously you guys have a race this Friday so the first two races will be next Friday.

    Cool, I put you down provisionally already but I'll keep it like that until you give further notice. :)

    I was very eager to set another championship up A.S.A.P because time is short and I had fun in the last championship and I also wanted the task of making a table up so I get a good experience in the what should be 2 seasons of GTP Racing.

    Okay, I'll start making teams up unless we are going to do it randomly the only problem is that how will this work?

    If not then we have Red Bull done with Ginty and King. Anyone want to be my team mate?

    MadAd, we'll join to form a team, have you got any team names? I'm not very good with comig up with things like that.:)

    SMK, I like your idea's as they seem unique but I think it seems to complex to be doing things like that in the championship. I think we should stick to what has always been the way on GTP but if anyone else agrees with SMK and there is a majority then the rule will be instated.

    Back onto teams and we know myslef and MadAd will be in a team whilst persumably Ginty and King are in one for Red Bull.

    My guess so far to who's in what team is Kakundoo and Fishfash for Brawn GP, also, SMK wants to be in a team for Lotus and PJ's avatar is a Lotus so thats a team and that leaves us with Jordy and Ardius who could go together. These are just guesses and are not permanent but if I could get a rough idea of who's in what team then that would be good. Thanks. :)

    Hmm, I think thats too complicated and too confusing for new drivers. Imagine if you had to miss a race because of work/sickness/holidays/life in general and you get told you don't score the same points as everyone else?

    We are not super-serious around here, we take the racing seriously but I personally tried to run the championship in a friendly and fun manner rather than a strict way. It may not be always fair to those that always turn up, but if you turn up every week you are pretty likely to be finishing high up anyway.
    Beating the odd people who turn up for only 1 or 2 races is part of the game, its still fair in the sense of everyone had to beat those people, not just you.

    I personally would hate that system as I cannot reliably turn up to every race, life is not all about video games and I sometimes have to make room for the more important things.

    "Went crazy on me" - what? I apologised for a bit of a desperate move by myself, how is this a reference to how serious I take my racing and not the championship?
    And to describe that incident more vividly - I was following you in slipstream going into that turn and I was way along side you in the braking point. It was a legitimate move although at a place where people don't normally overtake. It was not "crazy" but it was a bit ambitious.

    If you're going to start implying I'm dumb and don't understand then I really don't want to take part in any championship that includes you. First and foremost I race with people I respect and who respect me, if you're going to have an attitude when I criticise your ideas, then I don't feel I can race respectfully with you.

    I especially dislike elitist attitudes like this whereby those who cannot take part in events for decent reasons are looked upon as "getting in the way" of those who want to win. I think I have proven in past championships that I do dedicate a lot my time to this game and to this forum and series of championships and I have reliably turned up when I could. When I have exams, a lot of assignment work or unforeseen family issues or personal problems, I cannot put a game before these things. Maybe you do, but reality matters more to me.

    My problem is a lack of respect. :tdown: Maybe you could actually spend some time writing your posts in proper spelling and grammar too?

    Okay, I have the teams sorted out I think.

    Hesketh - DonkeyFuzz and F1MadAd
    McLaren - KingMartin and Ginty
    Brawn GP - Fishfash and Kakundoo
    Arrows GP - Ardius and Jordy ???
    SMK GP - SMK and PJ-FFL

    SMK, I know you requested your own team but it seems silly to put you on your own if there's someone else looking for a team. It doesn't matter to much and if anything it should help the constructor standings.

    Well I'm not exactly feeling a lot of respect from you when you say stuff like:
    If you are really giving me any respect and don't have an attitude, you wouldn't be implying I was dumb or didn't understand. I was criticising your idea in a constructive manner but you choose to make fun. I don't want to race with someone who thinks little of me. This isn't being "GOD", but a simple matter of how can you expect me to respect you when you act like this when I am critical?

    I wasn't implying new drivers are dumb, I was saying the system you suggested was complicated, more complicated than the simple points system we already have in place. The regular drivers would get used to it but each time a new driver came in, they could be a little confused that their positions don't equate to the same points. I know I would be and DonkeyFuzz also agrees it would be complex.

    I still don't understand why you think my racing earlier but not being able to turn up for a race later means I don't take it seriously. As I have stated many, many times already I do not always have the availability from life to turn up. If you really must know why I did not turn up 1 hour later - it was due to one of my brothers returning home who I do not see very often. Do you really expect me to play a game or greet him?

    I'm having a hard time really understanding what you mean for the rest of your post. When you registered for this forum, you agreed to this:
    https://www.gtplanet.net/aup/
    Its not much to ask and I would like to understand your posts.

    SMK, what the hell are you on!? Please, PLEASE, can you write in proper English? I seriously have no idea what you're going on about, and for Ardius to make any sense of it and then reply is pretty genius in my opinion.

    The GTP World Championship rules were essentially made up by Ardius and adapted by driver's over the season due to certain situations that occurred. I think it's rude of you to disrespect Ardius like that, and I'm with him in saying that I don't want to race with someone who has the same ideals and disrespecting attitude as you.

    This is meant as a fun Championship. Yes, we are all competitive and want to win, but it's not the be all and end all. People will have other commitments and issues that will stop them from racing from time to time, and to punish them for that is completely out of order.

    Now that i've said my piece, I can get back to this season :). I think it's a pretty safe bet that Hesketh have the best chance of winning the Constructor's this season, although hopefully it will be closer fought than last season's. And maybe we'll have a few drivers going for the Driver's title too :tup:

    I thought it would be easier to do it like this because it means it can be done quicker, however we can change if you would prefer but they seem sorted out now and King and yourself have said you don't mind so I think we'll stick like this if thats okay?:)

    It would be great if Ardius could team up with Jordy unless you want mix yourselves up with each other. Either way is good.:)

    SMK, please don't take this to heart, but could you try and show some more respect to others on this forum. Ardius is the creator of the GTP championship and his rules have barely changed at all so that's how they are going to stay. As well as this, some of your rules seem pointless to have like capital letters and not using 'r' for ready because it's just a quicker way of doing things and it's not hurting anyone is it?

    Overall SMK, if you could just show some more respect then that would be good because you can put a real downer on things.:grumpy:

    Okay, nothing to do with teams but about the race schedule.

    Our Championship starts on the 25th June and F1 2010 comes out on the 24th September which gives us 13 weeks of gaming.

    To spread this out for the full 13 weeks, that would mean doing 2 15 lap races a night for the first 5 weeks then 1 20 lap race a night for last 8 weeks. I don't know what you think but I think it would be good to spread it out for the maximum time length that we can.

    I thought F1 2010 came out on the 25th September which would be a Saturdday so that would give us 14 weeks but it comes out on Friday so that loses us a whole week!
