I have an original idea that would be awesome if implemented.
Allow each game uploaded to have a comment section below the stats, where any TPCer can comment. It would get more people involved in looking at games, players, and stats and could boost tpc/tecmo morale. trash talk, point out interesting statistical anomaly's, crazy matchups, ridiculous outcomes, player improvement.

example of what someone could comment on this game.
sconnieale: why is nobody the vikings?
rdleifriaf: who is this n00b passing 12/14 with schroeder in his 2nd game online ever?
-------disastamasta: interested in signing up for my school of tecmo class? I only accept cash being that I'm 14 years old and don't have a checking account.

same thing i just pmed TDO. (not my idea, brus)

how bout a option to say if its a league game or tpc game so someone can track all their online wins in one place..

but at same time if you chose league it wont change your tpc record or the person you beat, it will go into a separate category and after the year is up it stops tracking and moves on to the next year. so its a year by year type tracker of all the games u play ... and to upload the person dont have to be registered to tpc you just enter there name.

i think alot of people would love this idea cause they can track their overall record for everything in one place which has never been done before. it would def be ground breaking

Joey I appreciate your enthusiasm, and I had some personal things that took (and will always take) precedent over tecmo. TPC is the top of my list of things to revamp, however nothing happens in a few minutes. TPC will be getting revamped, It will happen and it will happen soon, but it's not going to happen overnight, or in a week.

no one said anything about a time frame.. but you can least have another of thread telling us the ideas that will be on the new updated site,so we know what to look forward to.

have you liked any of the ideas, will you use them? we are in the dark.....

There is a lot of good ideas, i think most will be used not counting some I've already said no to. Ideas and implementation are two different things. I can't give you a definitely list of what's going to happen until it happens as coding may impede or prevent certain things without a complete re-write which would end up being even longer to get done.

As a new guy I think the whole set up is confusing, if you want to draw more players to the TPC simple is key. Simplicity is why we are all drawn to Tecmo In the first place. AIM link and player handle is really all you would need then if you clicked player handle all the feedback and game by game summary would be accessible. It took me three days to get to where I kind of understand how the TPC and Tecmobowl.org and Tecmo.us are three different groups of the same community. My advice would be to plug the TPC from a social media stand point. I know that done correctly you could double the active players on the Circut.

Also I had no idea about the TPC until three days ago when I commented on a Super Tecmo Bowl post on face book and did some investigating on my own. In my opinion there are too many leagues worrying about the wrong things like touchbacks and new play calling ability and no one is addressing NEW PLAYER RECRUITMENT. That's how anything would get stronger and better is with more active members. Has anyone made a TPC facebook page? I know that that alone would generate much needed buzz surrounding the TPC.

It seems Discord is helping to revive TPC. I see people getting games on there all of the time. Is there any way to see the stats of games uploaded by week (month) to the TPC website?
HSTL Season XXV, XXVI, & XXVII Champion
Baseball Stars Seasons I & II Champion
MIB Season III Champion

i would really like to see the tpc site improve. as of now its really slow, freezes my browser for a minute, the chat interace isnt the best and the top 10 takes forever to update..

also should be a ez way to run a tourney on there instead of using the challenge site for a bracket. all tournies should be on the tpc site not anywhere else imo.

and lets not forget all them great ideas people had from before
