Rather wait until say August after we watch the current process unfold again for now three Worlds and see if there's still a need to fix it.

I wasn't really asking for it's implementation, I was asking in order to see if I'd like it, to see if I'd have suggestions, or start further discussion.

I know. I was cautioning you against getting Chuck started explaining it. To make sure you are fully prepared for the deluge.

Good God, please don't let it be another mid season point requirement change.

Depends on who the new ED ends up being, but I expect that mid-season thing to be a thing of the past now that BG is out. From what I've heard, he was one of the main culprits in not recognizing that mid-season is horrible timing for those kinds of changes. Or at least, that was the impression I got after they made those changes mid-2014 (for 2015 Worlds) and then repeated the error this past summer.

Answer this question honestly.

Do you think that the PDGA powers, currently with an Exec Director, are having serious discussions right now, prior to the real beginning of the 2017 season, about the points needed for 2018 Worlds? Do you really think that's going on right now?

That's your answer.

Given the resignation of the ED, I guess the answer would be no. Does that mean another midseason raise of 2018 World's point requirements? Or does that mean a change to the way sign ups are done? Or a decision to further divide up the AM divisions into separate tournaments? I think there are options. I have a VERY hard time believing anyone would make the decision to raise the points again midseason......but of course, I said that before this summer.

Exactly ... on the points thing. It's a 50-50 proposition at best right now.

Now the divisions thing will be better, because beginning in 2018, there will be no juniors, so Ams will have at least 1 1/2 to 2 more full 72-player pools. We just don't know how it'll be divided up yet.
