They got rid of the weird double/redouble exception to transfers. Now, any call (except pass) that shows a specific suit is Announced (with the name of the suit shown).

I think this is a huge step forwards and would urge every other RA to go the same way.

Michael, I think it would be useful to post your guidelines in it's own, pinned thread.

Sounds like a good idea to me.

I could do that, but I'd want to have some idea how people would want it laid out. My 5-pager formatted well for "our unit bulletin"; not sure it works well as a (series of) posts in a forum thread. With my - idiosyncrasies? - it could easily become simply incomprehensible.

Another issue is that that guide was an object of its time - and its time was 2019. Many of the "common changes" I mentioned were so common that everybody is comfortable with them now (and many aren't, like the delayed alerts of slam auctions that still universally get preempted by "what's 4NT?" because nobody does what they should, so nobody has learned to wait and assume it's coming. And I'm not sure we're ever going to get rid of "transfer", and frankly 95% of the time, that's not a problem). How many remember "turn of the century" Alerting as their "basis" any more?
