Now I found this thread.

My suggestion:

Because you have two  threads for the game, give the entry links (perhaps only the first) please in both threads. This thread was hidden between  much waste.

Profo-zeki,

I don't agree with your complaint.

If you read the titles of the topics (I assume this is what you mean about thread), you'll find out that this one is for Torikumi, links to Entry Form, and Standings.

The other one is only for Invitation and Registration Form.

 I did it on purpose to prevent from wasting time and go to the topic you want to go to.

By the way, the TUG Torikumi and the link for the Entry Form for Shonichi (Day 1) was posted on Friday, May 12, 2017 at around 7:30 AM Pacific Standard Time, as soon the Ofiicial Torikumi for Day 1 was posted on Sumo Reference, and before I went to the airport.

Regarding your suggestion, it doesn't make sense to post the link with the Daily Entry Form the Registration Form will be closed after the start of the Basho.

Sorry for any inconveniences!

Regards,

Achiyama

Really

You are mocking a "g" for a "j"??

It's 3:00 a.m. in the morning and I am trying to do my best to give you the picks, and you are picking on a single letter?

Honestly, "Ichi-No-Go" might be the best nickname I've heard for that rikishi.

The Day 2 entry form says Chiyoshoma is worth 6, which is definitely too low, but the torikumi list above has it what seems more likely at 16.

edit: Only the main ballot has 6; the backup has 16.

Gurowake-zeki,

Thanks for catching the typo. The right points are 16. I fixed the Entry Form for Day 2.

It was too late, more precisely early morning, and I was very tired after the Graduation Commencement and a proper celebration afterwards. :-)

Indeed.  Achiyama, I hope I can speak for a majority of us when I say that I am endlessly grateful for all of the time and energy you have put into creating and running this game, and I hope that any errors are pointed out for the benefit of all and in the interest of helping run a good and fair game (or for humor) and never to suggest that you must be perfect in your administration.

Obviously, I misunderstood, or didn't get your point.

All is good. I am not angry!
