I like that point per country tally. That doesn't mean the dutch are smarter than everyone else though!

I like the idea od a centralised tally but there are so many problems with it.

There are so many tally's some of them by newbies who wont update. Also some of us go on holiday or simply give up like Kuesel. So I think it is better to stick to our own tallies.

But if everybody goes along the other idea I will not object and kep to the trend.

Yes. That's the only disadvantage of the system. Who's tally will count? You can update every tallies once a week but some of them only make 2 GTC's or take a long break.

...it's a good idea but the centralized tally will need to be updated regularly, who 'll be in charge of it ??

I assume Forza will. It would be a lot of work though.

Stop making the system complicated. Anyhow GTC is just a game for everyone to participate.

I think it needs to be casual. Like the honor system.

Here's a question. Is anyone here old enough to remember me? I haven't been here in well over a year and I don't see hardly any familiar faces.

After rereading this thread I have something to say. The points systems or anything to do with GTC should NEVER be centralized. The whole point of people having their own point systems and their own series of threads is to add to the fun, variety, and friendly competition that makes this subforum so great.

When I first instituted the idea of a formal point system in my Official GTC Series of threads (yes believe it or not I was the first that I know of to do this, so anyone with a point system now owes their origins to me), it was merely to keep a tab of who was active, who was good, and who would get bragging rights at the end of the series.

Seriously, centralizing GTC would remove its fun, it would make it seem like a government, like an autocracy. As a plea and opinion from one of the oldest active GTC users, the inventor of a formal point system, and the first person to reach 100 threads in one GTC series, I ask you not to do this.

I only remember your guess the distance threads.

Here I have made 166 "Poll the" series since last year, as well as more than 300 GTCs since 2005.
