Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Why not Spanish? After all, this is the freaking Copa America.
  2. Well, I could have used Portuguese too. But the truth is, most participants speak Spanish, but ALL participants speak English.
    So there. Besides, I think the U.S. will play too. In the First Round only, of course.

  3. How do we know "the admin" won't run away with all of our money?
  4. In the World Cup Polla it was an Indian dude who ran away with all the money. He won! In his defense, he used some of the prize money to buy me several beers. So I hope the next winner will follow this noble example.

  5. Is it ok to use my bank account password here?
  6. In the server, the passwords are stored encoded (to keep a simple human from reading them) but not encrypted.
    Also, none of the passwords are transmitted securely when you submit your forms.
    For these reasons, just come up with some other password for this website (not like anyone would want access to your puny bank account, anyway). Or if you MUST use your bank account password, be a darling and send me your account number too and your ATM pin.

  7. I'm not in Austin, how will I pay?
  8. Wells Fargo direct transfer. Or if you are in Mexico, we'll arrange some crazy bank transfer thing (CLABE).

  9. Does "the admin" make any money from this?
  10. Nope, even though "the admin" is a busy man, he does all this just for fun, zero profit. Unless "the admin" wins, of course. But "the admin" expects beer from the winner, read above.

  11. Can "the admin" play?
  12. Hell yeah! If no profit is being made, at least he should get into the fun. Trust him, he won't cheat. You're trusting him with your money and maybe your bank account password already anyway. If any of this makes you uncomfortable, then go elsewhere to play.

  13. Will "the admin" do that retarded extra player with all the 1-1 ties?
  14. No, that was just an experiment. A failed experiment. Do not bring it up anymore.

  15. Can I see/edit my results?
  16. Yeah, just go to the form, enter your nick and password and you can edit all you want up until the game starts (the time is right there too, just in case).

  17. What's the due date for entering results?
  18. The result for each game can be edited individually up until the game starts. For your convenience, time when each game starts is in the Enter Results form.

  19. What about extra time and penalty kicks?
  20. They are not considered. Only enter the results for the first 90 minutes! This means that you could enter a tie in the Final, if you believe they'll go to Extra Time.

  21. I've never heard of this Copa America soccer thing, but I want to play anyway, is that ok?
  22. Atta boy! Read this and you will be all set and ready to part away with you hard earned money.
