the volume of reports we get, we ask everyone to follow
these fairly simple rules. It is very time
consuming for us to post reports, and this really make
it easier for us:
submit a tourney report, you need to follow these rules:
If you can make your report and attachment, that
would be great: The attachments
should either be: a.) in HTML format (web page - *.html, or *.htm) b.) as a text file (*.txt) with line breaks
(turn Word Wrap off, "Format > Word Wrap" and make
sure it's unchecked, then use the Enter key to go to
the next line in your report.)
Both of these are easily done with word processing
programs like Microsoft Word. Or if you have an HTML
editor like FrontPage, you can use that too. I
would prefer you save as a Web Page (*.HTML) first
if you can. That's by far the easiest, and
preserves your formatting.
For example: If you use MS Word to make your DOC
files, on some versions, you can do File > Save as
Webpage... to get it in the .HTM form. =)
If you can't save your report in either of these
formats, then it is best if you just cut & paste it
into an email for us. I can not post DOC, WPS,
or RTF on the net, so please don't send files in
that format. I will politely return them.
(FYI: red = bad , green = good , just incase there was
The attached tourney
report should contain the following in it's file
name: "The deck name, your name, & Store Location"
The subject line of your email should also be
"Subject: Turtle Deck Jim Slim Butchy's Comics San
Diego" - This applies to everyone (whether you are
sending an attachment or not). This is what
readers will see when they click on the link to read
Reports should be
from organized tournaments only, which are open to
the public. Tourneys at friends houses do not
count as a large-scale tourney, as the world at
large is usually not invited.
All reports should
include a header at the TOP
of your report which includes: Deck
Name, Your Name, Location of
Tournament, City and State of tournament.
Also include the Date of the tournament in
your header, and it's great if you include the # of
people that participated. This gives your report
some respect. Be honest.
cards in your deck and tell us the tournament
results. Even if your deck does
bad .. write a detailed report if you want, everyone
will still learn from it, and may recommend good
changes for you. Try to tell us the
types of decks you faced each round. Simply
saying, "I won" each round, or even worse, saying
things like "my deck just dominated all day" instead
of giving details is a sure way for your report to
NOT get posted. And please don't fake a deck
list.. If you don't want people to know what's in
your deck, then don't bother sending it to us.
your name & e-mail address at the bottom of your
report, so other readers can contact you.
We will not post your deck if you do not include
your email address. Let people contact you
tournament allowed Japanese cards not printed in
English, you must provide a translation for the card
in your report. Failure to do so will
result in the report not being posted.
Do not use all
capital letters in your report. Yes, I
know sometimes you need to put a word, or even an
entire sentence in all caps to signify it being
important, but if you entire deck listing or entire
report is all caps, it will be discarded.

words could cause people to misinterpret your
report, and in the process, misjudge you too.

Reports that do not meet the above requirements are
simply deleted. We apologize if we hurt your
feelings, but with the quantity of email we get, we
had to set some very high standards to keep our site
top notch. As with job résumés, these
guidelines were made to throw your report out.
The only way to beat them? Do as they say. ;-)
Don't be surprised if it takes a while to get your
report posted. We get a lot of mail we have to
go through. If you played in an organized
event, told us where it was, wrote a decent
report, and followed the rest of the above
guidelines ... don't worry we'll get it posted.
either email us your report, or post it yourself on our
you've read all these rules, and understand them,
