    Hi people
    I've been thinking about creating a dedicated website with small cups and ladders for PES 08 players.

    I fancy doing this as a little web project but im hoping to get a nice site where you just tap in some details and you can hook a match up in no time in a ladder and also compete in little cups.

    So before i commit alot of time to the building of the site I would like to know who likes the idea and would use it.
    Also any suggestions would be great.

    Thanks,
    Doddz3h

    I would certainly be interested in taking part. We had a Champions League style cup going here, but it seems to have fallen by the wayside, have a look here for more info.
    Good luck with it.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll check that out =]

    If I am to go ahead I would be interested in forming a admin team. So if anyone has an interest in PES for the Wii and fancies watching over some leagues with some others let me know.

    I am definitely keen, some functionality around deadlines on matches etc. would be good.

    I don't have any coding ability but an happy to help out if I can.

    I am definitely up for this. How weird as I was thinking the same thing this morning. Good idea I think. Count me in.

    Great minds think alike rossag =P

    I could get some forums and a domain up and running in no time but as for the site and all the scripts that would need coding that would take a while.

    Watch this space!

    Bored at work and googling, could we use something like this? http://www.leaguerepublic.com/

    Or an open source league management thing?

    100 a year to use that with your own domain =| wow

    yeah they good idea's but from past experience its never properly worked using things like that (N) which is a shame. i'll have to think about it after work. by the looks of things this site could be making its starting steps soon.

    any idea's for names?

    Yeah, the price was a bit ridiculous, any the example sites are hideous.

    Sounds like a pretty good idea. I'd be up for using it.

    I'd be in for a more structured tournament. Our group tournament failed misserably, though TBF a few people realy came through, like Wonk.

    As a web developer for the last 10 years 100 sounds cheap to me... although I haven't really looked at what they are offering. It doesn't sounds pricey for a yearly cost if the website is produces is any good. Very cheap, in fact.

    Although we are wandering off topic, I think it is a reasonable price if oyou are a local sports association looking to organise leagues, I think for our purposes its a big investment for something we are just trying to get off the ground.

    Thanks for your feedback everyone

    My initial idea is to have many leagues/ladders of few people so we keep it close and it'll help you get to know other players better since you wil be in a small group, then after so long there would be a group shuffle or just promotions / demotions to get some uniformity in the differrent groups. I'm open to other ideas as we still on the drawing board atm.

    As a web developer for the last 10 years 100 sounds cheap to me... although I haven't really looked at what they are offering. It doesn't sounds pricey for a yearly cost if the website is produces is any good. Very cheap, in fact.

    True it is cheap in them terms but you are getting for what you pay for in that sense too.
    - its not customized to what you want
    - its not a one off developing fee 100 pound per year per league/ladder we are only paying to use it
    - you need to pay an extra 50 to remove the adverts per league/ladder per year

    so there is no chance for us to put our own ads on to claim back our own running costs and it makes expansion a expensive venture. Plus its a 100 i wouldn't like to be out of pocket if it were to flop.

    Since you have had a lot of experience in web developing, would making a PHP and MySQL driven site be the best road to follow for this site in your view?

    Also anyone interested in the Wii PES leagues and ladders?
