    Tomorrow first thing in the morning mate. Deadline is next week Sunday so you have a week to submit

    I'm doing two-weekly updates, because it's too much workload otherwise. Spoke about it with Erk the other day. Doing 1 month takes up to 6~8 hours in real life.

    If I do the update on one Sunday and the points on the next one, I keep it managable for myself

    Sorry guys but yesterday went different than I had planned.

    Will do it when I get home tonight.

    It's a lot of work to be done and it needs to be done correctly as well. Yesterday I was in no state to concentrate.

    No mate. Every first Sunday of the month I go visit my mom's grave with my dad. And he's still very unstable mentally about it all where I've already given it a place. So I ended up spending the entire day with him just to be there for him as he needs that. But those are mentally draining days and when you combine that with a new job where I also have to learn a lot of new stuff than you have a recipe for exhaustion.

    I've tried doing it after work this week, but I can't find the energy to do it. It's a 2 hour job max. but I need to focus pretty hard to get it all right. And focus is something I don't have these days in the evening. Last night I wanted to take a short power nap after dinner and then do it, but I woke up at midnight because I was too tired.

    The above is not an excuse, but more an explanation why I haven't been able to deliver recently. I will do the points this weekend and will put the deadline for submission to next week Sunday.

    And just a general FYI: I'm uncertain whether to continue with the format as is. It's a great format, but it costs so much time. A single update costs me around 6 to 8 hours to do, everything included, which is too much for me. Also there are some flaws as staff leaving/retiring and not being able to replace and attribute drops that I can't fix all the time. I will finish this season and then re-evaluate whether to continue and in what way.

    What takes most time mate? Updating the points to players, calculating points in first place etc

    I'd say for a start, putting up screenshots of results/tables etc may not be needed as that can be a big time saver - makes us look at the save more then as well (like in DTL)

    Maybe think about the things that take most time and cut them

    Agree with redders, just an update without the pictures will do me. I know some of the others have trouble reading but hey...they need to learn!

    Maybe strip back the points to basics? Not the in-depth breakdown you normally do.

    It's the updating in the GK editor and the point calculating that take the most time. I'd say each costs me 1~2 hours to do proper depending on the 'size' of the month.

    Both are also tedious tasks that you need to do with focus, because you don't want to mess up. It's litterally squinting at the editor or the stats and you need to double check if edits are saved or that you didn't miss an assist somewhere. It's an exhausting exercision to do which costs the most time.

    The update with the screenshots takes me over 30 mins tops. I've got a good snipping tool with hotkeys setup to recapture previously snapped area's so I can make many screenshots in short time. Also I really like the update style as I'm doing now and I feel it actually adds something to this format. I could perhaps leave out the individual match screenshots and keep it to the results screenshots, but that would save me tops 15 mins.

    Points for goals and clean sheets. One pool of points.

    Maybe even limit the amount of players that one can update?

    Could it be a possibility to add up match ratings and divided by something?

    Sigh.

    I've thought about it and I no longer want to be a part of this community.

    I would like to resign from PES United - but ONLY IF I can hand the club over to a mate of mine

    Is that OK?

    If you resign, you resign and that means you're out.

    I will then put a message out to the first person on the waiting list to see if he wants to take over. If he doesn't respond I will message the next in line, etc. If there is no waiting list I will put out a general message in chat and people can respond after which I will pick one of them.

    What I'm saying is is unless I can give the club to him I stay.

    If so - I go. If it isn't mine to offer just disregard this.

    Why would you say you don't want to be part of this community? You doooo understand no one walks away from the CM community. You just vanish in suspicious circumstances after Mark decides you leave the community

    I was only leaving if I could give this team to a mate but I love it too much so I will stay. Consider the previous posts deleted. Thank you for understanding Ray

    On a scale of 1-10 where 10 is "all the time" how often do you post drunk?
