  •   Question What to do with unseeded players, and how to create a tournament draw if not all players are seeded? —MisterSynergy (talk) 09:59, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
Unseeded players don't have this information. In terms of how a draw looks like if not all players are seeded, please see the link to the draw I already provided as part of the proposal. --Mad melone (talk) 14:35, 29 August 2018 (UTC)
  •   Comment is the datatype really the best one? Shouldn't we use items to represent things like LL (Lucky Loser)? I am not familiar with the domain so I don't know if the strings are absolutely codified internationally. − Pintoch (talk) 21:41, 31 August 2018 (UTC)
