    It was disappointing trying to get official results for the recently concluded Indonesia Open. The results for the current Singapore Youth International are updated more promptly than the 5-star Indonesia Open.

    If next year's Indonesia Open is going to be upgraded to 6-star, then the organiser should develop an official website with live scoring befitting such a prestigious event.

    Maybe IBF should enforce that organisers must update results promptly and at least twice daily for events of certain status. Live scoring should be strongly encouraged for the "top end" tournaments.

    What do you think ?

    Because now we are sitting in the 21st century and in the era of cyber, so we hope that IBF has a 'strengh' rule for the 6 stars tournaments.

    Just a sample : China Open and Indonesia Open.
    We all know that China Open has a web-site but no English and no online score. The wost is Indonesia Open, no web-site at all

    Not only IBF, but the organisators of the tournaments have to think also about people who love badminton in whole over the world.
    People who crary about badminton and want to follow the progress of their star players online.

    A website would also help promote the sponsor's name.

    It's a very easy way of disseminating the name.

    Cool Another flop

    Doesn't matter is five or six stars, the timing is lousy in September especially after the conclusion of World Championship 2005 in August, many top guns may chose to skip this tournament. Why not schedule like before April so players from all nations are eager to come to collect valuable points to qualify World Championship?
    If I am not mistaken, China will only send the youngsters to the 6-star Korea Open in January? If this is true, what a blow! 3 months of quiet period until All England.

    Wouldnt it be otherwise tho? I mean the players might still be in their peak, so they'd most probably go there for the money, right?

    mmm, dont think so, sorry, i agree with han, lets just hope that pbsi change their mind, i mean their aims are all england, wc, and olympic, they compete in many tourneys is in order to qualify for those 3, and after one of those 3 tourney being held, some players will just take a rest and skip few tournaments after the big event, and some reitiring

    If I was tournament director of PBSI, I will set Indonesia Open before WC 2005.

    i just found this out as well. i don't understand why the PBSI would delay the 2005 IO to September??..As planned before, June was already fine, with July as a break month before the WC..Mebbe cause it was too close to the last IO??...Anyway, if they still uphold the decision, then that would mean there will be 2 months of "resting time" before WC(as the Sudirman Cup will be held in May, after AE and Japan Open), just hope they hold it near the end of September..

    Hate to say this but if you go out in the earlier rounds (q/f or before), very likely you won't even cover the cost of flight and accomodation.
