  1. Get all the details and dirt with @hoffnasty9 and @vikingmoe02, with special guest @War Machine,
  2. In the past it was possible to login with Twitter and Facebook instead of your username/password. Over time this authentication broke because it required more encryption than this site supported. Recently I updated the site from http to https and along with that comes a new slew of authentication options. You're now able to either use Facebook, Twitter, Google, and/or Discord. If you already have an account on this site with the same email address as one of these services you'll be asked to authenticate to your current user account instead of creating a new one.

    Site switched to HTTPS

    I switched the site over to HTTPS which has been a long time coming and where most of the internet will either go or already is. If you're not familiar just google it though in a nutshell it makes the connection to this site more secure. You really shouldn't notice anything different other than probably having to re-log back in. If something isn't working, post it here.

    What foods are you smoking

    On the 4th I smoked a whole chicken and some short cut beef ribs which was a first for me (I'll take a picture at some point of what i mean by short cut beef ribs). The ribs were a first for me and I didn't know where I would come out in terms of the quality (should I get them up over 200 or not?) and in terms of the ratio of fat to meat (they were super fatty). They blackened up quite a bit but overall I think they needed to get up over 200 in order to be tender enough and to peel away the layer of fat easily. Otherwise I think that smoking a steak has some merit because trying that out last week with some oak I got almost a bacon flavor. Depending on the cut you're looking at about 1-2 hours in the smoker so it's not overly demanding of your time. I smoked the steak then finished it on the grill. I think you could sear it first and then smoke as well.
  6. Turbo controllers are illegal in most tournaments; there is a loophole though in the lack of legislation about turbo controllers for the use of picking ones' lineup.

    Apology asked for and given. You didn't ask me to endorse your event but I have as a way to show my sincerity. Either my words and name mean nothing or they mean something...it's not both.

    He probably deserves to know who would have put in the request on the facebook page in the first place, no?

    It's your thread. If your hubris outweighs what should be an easy business decision then so be it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    The unintentional comedy of this thread is off the charts but I would like to address one thing: What am I jealous of and why would you bring it up other than it fits your narrative that you're the person who needs to stand up to the rift that you have invented. If anyone was to really think about what it is I'm doing on here, which is provide a section for people to promote their Tecmo tournaments because I believe in the camaraderie that these events provide, why on earth would I want less events. Hal is putting on events in locations that don't really see a lot of Tecmo action. Why on earth would I be against that? Even if your argument is that I don't like Hal, why would I do that to the people who live in those areas? Think real long and hard if you need to...what do I really care other than that people generally get along and play Tecmo. But hey man, if part of coming for the cheddar and staying for the friendship is to manipulate people into thinking you're out there saving them from the big bad tecmo forum guy, good luck.

    I'm somewhat happy that in fact someone took the time to think they knew about the finances of Tecmo Madison (whoever made this chart) because it gives credence to me hearing that certain people in certain midwestern tournaments have already been laying out this stink. It does matter who: if you've heard it from someone that's who it is and you can wonder about their motivation for expecting the worse and being wrong about it.

    If there is an offroad community or dodge ball community these are not my concerns. My concern is this community. You released a graphic about tournaments in April highlighting Texas as a potential tournament spot and you were at LPGE last year and it's near your home base of operation. Of course you'd like to host part of the Tecmo Tour there. I think only one person could host a Tecmo Tournament there though and Dave did last year. It's now very obvious that he has no plans to do so this year but did you know that? I didn't and I talk to the guy on a regular basis. What would have happened if he had planned to run that tournament this year? I'm not sure how often it will be an issue on this forum where I would expect anyone to live up to the same standard. What I would like is for you to acknowledge that you should have, in fact, asked Dave if he planned on having his tournament again at that same event and that you shall strive to do so in the future. For this soul searching I would certain find that you are now aware of your community obligations and would be happy to move all the posts except for the first two somewhere else.

    As you can see from my first post I have not only changed it but have given you an endorsement. I'm not endorsing your tournament to cull any sort of favor or anything like that as much as I believe what I said. From what I've heard from anyone who's been to your events I've heard favorable things. There is no doubt in my mind this will be a fine tournament. I've been planning to attend your Omaha event if that ends up happening and I don't have other obligations. I also didn't change it to erase the record of me saying it because my original post is still there in your quote. When I posted that I thought you had Dave's DMCA page pulled it was a poorly thought out assumption on my part and for that I do apologize. Who else would really care? It was a careless assumption. I now know with certainty that it wasn't you and from reading your posts I suspect that you had no idea it was being done and the person who did do this probably still hasn't even bothered to tell you in confidence.

    I updated my initial post to reflect that I don't know who pulled the facebook page. What I'm really looking for here is an acknowledgement that this event was booked without the common courtesy of asking Dave first whether or not he planned to continue with it. When I'm talking about closure, this is it....I just didn't think I would have to spell it out like this.
