    I really love the look of this plugin. Can you explain to me how each person will be able to track their results as the tournament progresses? Are points tallied automatically? Will each user be able to see how other members in the "pool" are doing?

    Thanks for this awesome plugin. I'm looking forward to your response!

    Thanks for reaching out, and thanks for you interest in our project!

    We do have plans to extend the project and offer a way for people to see where they are in the standings. A leader board -- we might even have a mobile version of the leader board available in the next week or so. A lot of our production is based on user feedback. You tell us what you are interested in, and we'll give that area more attention. If you haven't already done so - visit our main website and check out some of the extensions we've already created. We also have a forum there for beta feedback. Feel free to drop in there and let us know what you think! http://wwww.bracketpress.com

    Scott's right on all points, here's some elaboration.

    Each bracket has it's own URL , and you can optionally leave commenting on. Using this facility, you can, for example have people comment on each other's brackets or create BuddyPress groups.

    I'm building out an awesome demo site, now, to be able to show off some of the features in a few days.

    To score a bracket, the system creates a "master bracket" on installation where you tell it who has won each game. Then, run scoring from the settings page, and it will tally the points based on the master bracket.

    The scoring is available in the meta_data of the bracket post, so if you want some code to display it today I can certainly provide that.

    The Pro Data plugin (commercial) is able to:

    a) Automatically update the game scores for the master from our main server
    b) run the scoring automatically
    c) A bunch of other stuff, particularly notifications when things happen (want to send an SMS message to your member whenever a game is over? you'll be able to do that)

    .... automatically, via timed jobs (cron).

    Now that the core plugin is released, we're busy updating the with more features. The idea is that you can start building your site and getting members, today, and as we get closer to March, we'll release updates that get closer and closer to the perfect system.

    Really looking forward to hearing how you plan to use the plugin so we can make it even better.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    I do agree. I think this is a great project! I have a custom excel spreadsheet with dropdowns that automatically calculate everything I need, but it's not web based. It's even more enticing since it's a WordPress plug-in. Looking forward to what you come up with and will point out bugs that I have come across so far.

    I think the main thing that is missing is a manual or step-by-step instructions. I am relatively new to WordPress and think I have set it up correctly, but just not 100% sure.

    Great work!
