Yes.

The plan was to have at least four tournaments; referred to in short as T1, T2, T3 and T4. Each will have its own separate ribbon.
The ribbons for T2 and T3 are already designed and finalized. Designs for T4 are in progress.

As mentioned previously, Dibble201Bty very kindly agreed to donate his time and effort in the actual production of the ribbons.
This helped me a lot, as I do not have the necessary software and even if I had obtained it, extra time would have been required to learn how to use it to good effect.
Dibble also helped me considerably to refine the ribbon designs; adding some excellent ideas and adjustments to my original basic concepts.
Therefore, the "lion's share" of credit for those ribbons rightfully belongs to him.

Thanks for the question, MM. (I'm surprised someone didn't ask before this.)

In my own mind, I had previously set the next tournament (T2) to begin on a weekend this month.
This should have been either 2-3 or 9-10 Dec but if not, then it would have been this coming weekend,16-17 Dec at the latest.
However, due to a major family crisis requiring my support and some other factors, I'm not likely to be ready now until about mid January.
My apologies to everyone.

I have still made significant progress and some weeks ago, I decided on 64 warships rather than 32 at the starting line.
Of course, while that can be seen as a good thing it also means more work; a small additional factor in the delay.
Nevertheless, I'm well on the way with the gathering of data etc; and some of the images I'll need.

I think my new approximate target date is achievable and I should be able to give a more accurate estimate early in the New Year.

Regards,
Paul

I hope that your difficulties are put away before the holidays. And, by the way, the best to you and your whole fam.
Is there any indication of the era of vessels that we will be debating in the second tournament? I'd like to be as prepared as possible.

Thanks for the good wishes ...

Thanks for the good wishes, guys.
The family member my wife and I are both very concerned about, has been receiving more comprehensive help and treatment recently.
There are hopeful signs that she is "turning the corner" and starting to make real progress.

Anyway, after this and all the usual Christmas/New Year stuff, I'm starting back into my work on the next Warships tournament.
I'm optimistically looking at the 2nd or 3rd weekend in January 2018; worst anticipated scenario could take me into early February.

A fair bit of work was already done before I set it aside a few weeks ago.
I was originally going to run 32 candidates (warship types) in T2 but found out quite early in the piece that this wasn't going to give adequate coverage.
I have therefore decided to run 64 types, some of which will not be greatly different from some others but will offer more options to vote from and - hopefully - a bit more balance.

The warships in T2 will cover the period from 1601 to (about) 1850.
I've actually figured out what most of them will be. Just need to make some final decisions; a little culling here and there; and fill the last few gaps.
Then I'll continue gathering images and information (some of which has already been done.)

I hope that answers most of the questions you guys might have.
Meanwhile, feel free to ask more at any time.

Thanks to all of you for your participation in T1 and I'll try not to keep you all waiting too long for T2.
