And about France, UK etc.... Taneepak, I am beginning to think you may be racist somehow....
These countries have high number of registered players and finance IBF proportionnally.
The problem of having five stars events is a problem of finding sponsors which is obviously very difficult in countries where the money goes traditionnally to many other sports in priority (football, rugby, tennis etc...) and we do have a lot of trouble bringing money to badminton.
So yes, it's true that votes at the IBF are not linked to getting olympics medals or organizing five star events.
No, they are not democratical as far too many countries have five votes, even with a limited number of registered players, so federations who actually represent a big number of players do not get an adequate representation.
And yes, political and economical pressure is put on minor countries so that they vote in a certain way... (don't worry, this is usually Punch's way )

This thread is about voting for the old or new point system. Actually there are the delegates from all Member Associations of the IBF that are to vote.
Here on the IBF site, are the statutes of the Federation: http://www.worldbadminton.net/statutes.asp
on page 31:
(Rule) 5. GOVERNMENT
5.1 The Federation (that is the IBF) shall be governed by a General Meeting (see Rule 7), which delegates from all Member Associations shall be entitled to attend. The qualifications for attendance and the voting powers of the
delegates shall be as set out in Rule 13, but the Chair (see Rule 7.6) shall have a casting vote....
(Rule) 13. 13. REPRESENTATION AND VOTING STRENGTH AT GENERAL MEETINGS
13.4 A Member Association having paid a subscription shall be entitled to a minimum of one vote and a maximum of five votes in accordance with the size of its affiliated membership of active players, as established to the satisfaction of Council. This shall apply automatically as at the date of the meeting:
Number of Players Votes
fewer than 5,000 - 1
5,000 - 9,999 2
10,000 - 24,999 3
25,000 - 49,999 4
50,000 or more 5
I wonder how this delegates get theirs mandate, or how the Member Association came to an opinion about this topic. I never read something about that in Germany (maybe my fault). It looks like the president of the german badminton federation have very much to decide .
It looks also that he is a good friend of Punch Gunalan .
(Germany gets one IBF Training centre in Saarbrücken)
So we may tell ours delegates what we think about this point systems.

The IBF should divide general meeting into two parts - "senate" and "House of Representatives".
"senate" - one vote for one association.
"House of Representatives" - the number of votes of one association accroding to it's the number of players within top 100 on world ranking. 0.2 vote for one players/pairs within top 100 of world ranking in five events.

The character of badminton as a sport is shaped partly (may be mostly) by the scoring system that it had employed for a long time. I think if we go to 21 point rally system it will change the character of the sport, and it is remain to be seen whether it is GOOD or BAD. My personal belief is that it will not be good . My vote is for the 15 x 3 .

One of the joys of badminton is that the players' athleticism is tested to the limits. One has to be fit to keep up with even a decent player.
And what of those claims that badminton is more strenuous than tennis? That is going to get shot to hell.

old one for sure.
the games gets very exciting once it reacched 13-13 or even a deuce.. sometimes a game can get stuck at certain points, and for me it's very interesting also. the new system just doesn't fit to badminton.. and i'm afraid they will use it in interschool competition this year..

Its pretty obvious that the new scoring system is just made for TV so other peeps can understand the game a bit better. At the end of the day the new one sucks and the old one RULZ !
