Opinions on "template" for tournament rules etc

#1
Was thinking a community decided generic template for laying out tournament rules and information could make tournaments easier to set up as well as easier to follow while designing etc, it would also lessen the chance for mistakes from misinterpretation of certain rules.
My thoughts were that something such as the following layout would be the most efficient. Or if any of you have ideas on a "Default Template" post them and we can see what people like and dont like etc etc

Overview of tourney
-the goal of the tourney etc

Resources
-max resources for construction and provided in game

AI
-ai limitations or restrictions  (if any)

Structural
-ammo layouts (citadels etc)
-block restrictions (i.e. heaavy armour)
-ai and ammo placement restrictions if any (no ammo and ai at very rear of vehicle)

Engines, steering and propulsion
-engine block restrictions, steering restrictions (for instance jbg rudders do seem to be preferred due to their more natural characteristics), max speed

Weapons
-max calibers, max number of weapons, if ammo generation is allowed, energy weapons, certain types of shells being restricted (those white flayer shells that send you flying are often disliked and banned)

Other rules
-spinblock Clipping, 10% damage in a mirror match to be allowed entry into tournament, naming format for submissions

Tournament format
-tournament mod settings (so we can test while we build) i.e. spawn distance and orientation etc, scoring and winning requirements

Just to clarify this post is to find the most widely accepted format for laying out a tournament post so that i, or the person whos format is most popular, can proceed to make a true Template that one of the mods could hopefully pin or sticky or whatever to the tournament section that can then be copied and edited by people wanting to make their own tournaments, it could also help people who are not natively English to set up tournaments in a way that both parties (creator and competitor) can clearly understand. (By this i mean people who have to use google translate when making a post which often seems to mess up the layout of a post...)

I don't think we need a template. It's easy enough to copy all the relevant rules from, say, one of T3hJimmer's tournaments and make adjustments where necessary.

Also, most tournaments don't have terribly complex rules; it is easy for a non-native speaker to understand all common tournament rules. If any rules are complicated, this is often not because of their sophisticated wording, but because they are vague, which affects everyone.

Fair enough i do see what youre getting at, ive just seen a fair share of poorely set up tournament rules as far as layout goes, a template would make things fractionally easier for first time tournament makers as theyd immediately know where to look for it instead of having to find jimmer or harnas's or whoevers tournament... if that makes sense lol
