    I hope BWF won't decide to give Taipei or Macau any SS... Give the SS to bigger countries [outside the traditional Western Europe and Asia comfort zones] like Russia/Australia/USA... whichever is most ready.

    Oh, the minimum prize money for 2013 onwards [I agree with huangkwokhau for the PSS and SS] can be increased:
    Premier SS $500,000
    SS $300,000
    GP Gold $150,000
    GP $75,000
    International Challenge $30,000
    International Series $10,000
    Future Series $2500
    They had stayed at the current levels for too long. The value of US$ have depleted so much after all the Quantitative Easing practices [a.k.a. US printing money]. And no more of this nonsense that Future Series gives out $0 prize money. Professional players should get paid!

    As for the Juniors, ok laaah, keep the current arrangements:
    International Junior Challenge $15,000
    International Junior Series $5,000
    International Future Series $0

    I think the BWF should do as follows:
    SSP/SSF $500,000
    SS $300,000
    GPG $230,000
    GP $170,000
    IC $120,000
    IS $80,000
    FS(U21) $50,000
    AG(U19) $30,000
    BG(U17) $20,000
    CG(U15) $10,000

    Even the prize money of INA's Domestic Circuit (Sirnas) is Rp 200 millions, even more than the current standard of GPG-level.

    Oh sorry...I added one more zero. It should be equivalent to IC-level tourneys (US$15k) right now.

    I heard we are pushing for more IC/IS tourneys to be held in Indonesia...in that case we can upgrade the more high-profile Sirnas like Jakarta Open or other private-sponsored tourneys like the Indocock-Specs Walikota Surabaya Cup to be upgraded to points-bearing tourneys. That will serve the Pratama players and other local clubs well!

    I hope to see the following in South East Asia:
    INDONESIA - 1 SSP, 1 GPG, 1 GP, 1 IC, 1 IS + at least 1 Junior tourneys
    MALAYSIA - 1 SS, 1 GPG, 1 IC, 1 IS + 1 Junior tourneys
    SINGAPORE - 1 SS/GPG, 1 IC/IS + 1 Junior tourneys
    THAILAND - 1 SS/GPG, 1 IC/IS + 1 Junior tourneys
    VIETNAM - 1 GPG/GP, 1 IC + 1 Junior IC tourneys
    PHILIPPINES - 1 GPG/GP, 1 IC/IS + 1 Junior IC tourneys

    If these can happen, even a junior player can be guaranteed playing in 5 junior tourneys for ranking purpose each year, while those 19-21 yo can also participate in at least 5-10 IS/IC/GP/GPG level tourneys.

    PS: expect some development in Philippines badminton and hopefully more sponsorships for tourneys!

    I was at the Macau GPG event a few years ago. (i think it was 2008, but i am not sure.) LCW was playing against Taufik. And guess what. The stadium was 95% empty. There was only a few dozen people watching. It was embarrassing. The organizer got lots of money, but they couldn't find people to come to watch.

    And then there was the 2007 Super Series Masters Final. It had to be cancelled because BWF couldn't find enough sponsors. And that was beyond embarrassing.

    I hope the above would never happen again in badminton.

    The 2010 Macau Open GPG was also empty....even though it was held at the Venetian Macau.

    They just prefer to gamble rather than watching badminton. So, hopefully Macau will not be given the SS slot.

    interestingly, Guangzhou has produced many gold medalists of Olympics, World Championship and All England. With a population of 10 millions, I don't understand why Guangzhou doesn't have its own SS or GPG event.

    Indonesia might have 1 Junior International Challenge + 1 Junior International Series soon...

    It is a good idea for the Philippines to have 1 Junior Future Series and Thailand to have 1 Junior International Series....

    badMania... I know we are talking about future possibilites in this thread... I just wanna note that in the current rulebook, BAC is allowed to get 2 Junior IC, 5 Junior IS, and virtually limitless Junior FS.

    Helping the inactive countries to grow and popularize the game, though difficult, is admirable. But to penalize the active, though numerically small countries like SIN, which have supported the world body all these years is not a way to go.

    This is like the "big" countries trying to bully the small countries just because of their sheer size. Without big ticket events like the SS, the popularity of the game will be adversely affected in such hitherto active but smaller countries.

    Now the "big boys" are already ahead with the SS Premier in addition to having the equivalent of SS, Masters or GP which attract many top players. One could argue that such "big boys" should not be favoured if the objective is to spread badminton's popularity in all
    corners of the globe.

    BWF should not be seen as discriminating against small countries which have made good
    contributions in the past. SIN has often been cited as an excellent venue to host big events. If the discrimination is carried out this will be akin to what has been described earlier as tantamounting to being "racist" in the US example on sponsorship.

    So don't use big country, big population to discriminate against the small ones.

    LOL ! I think most of the successful players come from the Jiangsu province and here are the examples:

    Cai Yun
    Wang Shixian
    Yang Yang
    Zhao Jianhua

    Are you sure about that? I went to Guangzhou for the China Open 2006 AND China SS 2007! So, Guangzhou has held SS event.

    And 2 years ago, it hosted the Asian Games 2010. So, one cannot say that Guangzhou has not hosted major badminton events.
