One more thing

I will try to answer your questions in order:

1. Both are methods used to ensure there is no cherry picking. “Pre-designated”, is the method generally used for individual applications where the Mochy Club (or German PR Club) has been notified before the match was played. “Continuous” applies to the new format BMS tournaments where all matches for all players are used to calculate average PR, where they cannot opt out at any stage. It is not necessary to stipulate because it is known that all matches will count.

2. The Consultation panel had vigorous debate on whether the Mochy 4.0 Club settings should be used or some enhanced level analysis be applied. It was resolved that no enhancement would be considered until the future release of XG, when perhaps a new default “Grandmaster” analysis be used as standard together with re-calibration of the PR-Targets.

3. The shorter answer is no. Because specialist tournaments cannot be subdivided, attendance of such would mean the average PR would be measured over about 350 experiences. The other option of course is play two or more matches using the individual applicant route.

4. It isn’t possible to subdivide a match as clarified above, but it would also not be possible to decide to lose the beginning of an application as this would obviously be cherry picking. A re attempt must be made at the start of a tournament or at the start of an individual application.

5. Individual applications apply to all grades; the only significant difference is that all individual attempts require a minimum of 100 experience.

Some of the above issues relate to the meaning of the word continuous. The dictionary definition is:

“forming an unbroken whole; without interruption. the whole performance is enacted in one continuous movement”

This seems to fit the meaning I had intended. I didn’t see the need to use an expression like “continuous and integral”.
