Kopaka for organizing the whole thing, Ramone for picking levels.

The poll is just silly, but I think there should be a crew to handle all the stuff like last time. Kopaka should probably be somewhat involved anyways so could count him in. There definitely should be more than one person selecting the levels, preferably three or more and from the different eras of Elma. I don't really have anyone specific to point out because I don't think it matters that much, just that the people are responsible in arranging and keeping the spirit up for the whole duration of the cup. So, it should of course start from the mans themselves announcing what part they are willing to take.

At this point I think it's more important to consider when it should be. Now it's 2 years since the last one started. Of course a long time to prepare is good, we had about 3 months last time I think, which turned out a little bit rushed. But in any case need a general idea of when before anyone can commit to any kind of organizing.

I feel like it definitely should be an old-timer who was there during earlier World Cups. A man that knows WC's traditions and understands its spirit. It just would look a bit wrong to me if some newer guy took over this legendary event.

I'm thinking fall of next year, so it will have pretty much the same schedule as World Cup 6 (September -> December). That is about one year away, which should leave ample time for preparation.

Regarding who should do it, first and foremost it needs to be someone who is MOTIVATED. I agree with others though, that at least one of the main organizers should be an old-timer with an understanding of what the World Cup means.

Troll topic, half of voters voted "osv" which means "And so on".

Point of topic was to get people to talk about this, the poll isn't meant to be taken that seriously. I agree with SveinR. About 1 year from now would be good start, end of august 2016 best maybe.

Well yes that's why it needs to be talked about now, as early as 1 year before or so. If I recall correctly WCup6 was started just some month after project was resurrected. I mean, more time for preparing can't be worse than less.

Many wanderance. Will it be a committee of a few people who have the same authority but different "fields of expertise"? One main organizer and some helpers?

Will we find someone who fulfills all these requirements? I think that while oldschoolers would be good organizers for reasons mentioned in earlier posts, there's a high chance they have less willingness to do it. And if newer people organized it, would it feel "right"?

I think pretty much all agree that Kopaka would be a great choice, and I think he would gladly at least help, but does he want to be the main organizer? He already does a lot in other ways. Some say Zero would be a good choice, and I agree, but would he rather play?

I was kinda under the impression I wasnt wanted for wc7. but if it is what ppl want I think I would be down. I learned alot from prev wcup and would def do things differently (and hopefully better now). But for me its impos without all wonderful help I got from kopaka, he is our main man for sure! he did so much work with wc6. then also depending on when it will be. last wc I had time, will have less time now.

Yeah, I was actually wanting someone else than Ramone to organize it just to have something different (and well yes, admittedly because I was not a fan of some of the choices he made last time), but since there seemingly aren't any active wanted & willing guys, I have no problem with Ramone. I also do believe he has learned more from the last time. I think there are a lot of more good willing people for a great supporting cast than for the role of main organizer, and that is a tremendous asset if used properly.

I think pulling off a great World Cup even in a short schedule is possible and way better than waiting another year. Of course I'd love more posts to this topic, but if those won't come, please go for it Ram)

I liked the way Ramone approached WC6 (very high enthusiasm in chat and stuff, memorable decisions, a certain unique overall feel). Would like to see him doing it again.

As mentioned in the other world cup 7 poll I've tried to reach out to some potential organizers. We have already a small handful of people willing to make an effort. So I feel confident we can pull it off. However if you have any urge to help out please contact me. Doesn't matter if you've been voted for or are even in this poll. What needs done is things like level collecting, getting the word out, prices, PR, communication, website, internal discussion about any of these things. Not all of these require you to not play.
