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.

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.

If I was tournament director of PBSI, I will set Indonesia Open before WC 2005.
I agree with Han : "Why not schedule like before April so players from all nations are eager to come to collect valuable points to qualify World Championship?"

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..
