So... the GSSL website says that there was going to be a meeting on June 20 to approve the new divisions.  Anyone know what happened?  Who got relegated, who got promoted, who jumped ship, etc.

...Well, over a month later, the GSSL website still talks about that future June 20 meeting where the age group divisions "will be presented to the board." Back to the future?  No information has been posted about whatever the outcome was or anything else.     (Adding to the overall lameness is the fact that the information is posted twice, with different spacing, and refers to last season as "2004".)   Does anyone know what's going on over at GSSL?

Hello?  Anyone home?

All of the league presidents have the bracketing.  It was provisionally approved as scheduled.  They are dealing with appeals and a few teams that have dropped before the final seeding is posted to the website.

Instead of complaining here, why not ask you league president why (s)he has not shared the information with you?  Ours certainly did.

If the information has been provided to the league presidents, who are welcome to in turn provide it to the league members, why not post it so that the information can be accessed directly?  Most leagues have lots of teams not involved in GSSL, which gives the league presidents one or two other things to do with their spare time besides serving as a go-between for the teams which are involved in out-of-league competition and the GSSL.   Not to mention the fact that some of us are interested in teams outside our local leagues as well.

There was a time when the daisy-chain method of getting the word out was all we had.  It was called the twentieth century.  One of the advantages of having internet websites is the ability to disseminate information to the end-users quickly and efficiently and accurately.  Or, as the GSSL website says:
Quote Message
Please check back for all your official information about GSSL. This website will be your GSSL Headquarters with schedules, results, standings and GSSL news posted here.


Or not...

When they are done they will be posted.  If they got posted then changed I'm sure you'd be here complaining about that too.

Why not just ask the people you know have the information apparently want so badly?  The advent of the Internet did not invalidate all other means of communication (some of which, believe it or not, are actually superior to just posting stuff on a web site).

N.o.body, I posted the week after the decisions were supposed to have been made, wondering what happened since no information was made public.  Five weeks later, after the humorously inept dual post of the same long-obsolete information was still all that was to be seen on the GSSL website, I posted again.  (In the meantime, another poster on another thread on this site made a similar comment about the GSSL website, I'd note.)  

Then you got defensive and accusatory with me.  Why?   You have no idea what I would complain about or not complain about.  While you seem to revel in being "in the know" by virtue of a non-public source of information, most people would simply like to have the data available to them if they're interested, without any of the gossip or drama, thank you.  It's not information I "want so badly" - it's just information I think should be publicly available to anyone who is even casually interested.  Can you give me a reason why it shouldn't be, or why it should be the (extra) job of every league president to distribute the information to whoever he or she thinks should have it?

If changes are made - post that.  If a team drops out - post that.  If some brackets were finished and others not - post that. Tournaments deal with this kind of thing all the time - in a much shorter time frame, I'd add.  GSSL publicly urges people to rely on the GSSL website, and then doesn't bother to make it even remotely current or to correct an obvious if harmless website error for two months.   That's just sloppy.  

And I'm not the only one who feels that way.

Perhaps you should volunteer at GSSL and show them how it should be done?

I don't know what this particular conversation is all about...HOWEVER I can say that I have often been frustrated with websites that are not updated especially if the parties involved promote the website as a source of information.  While there are other forms of communication it is still appropriate to keep your website up to date and to release information as soon as reasonable.  Especially since this form of information is very easy to update.....

Ask your coach, GSSL league rep or league president.  They have the info you are looking for and are under no restrictions (other than their own discretion) about sharing it.

Is that hard?
