Sponsorship and prize money[edit]

I've added these sections into this article - there is a little bit about sponsorship on the generic World Snooker Championship page but I think it fits well here and is particularly relevant to this year's event. I've just spent ages trawling the web to try and find the prize money and I don't think it's anywhere else on wikipedia so I've put it here. The only source I could find for this is [1] which I think is right but can't find anything on 888.com or worldsnooker.com to confirm. I think all this info is better here than in the generic article because it's a year-specific thing. I know both of these do detract slightly from this being purely a 'results' page but I figure they're better here than anywhere else. Hope you agree. Cheers. Iancaddy 17:52, 23 April 2006 (UTC)

Makes sense to me - good work finding the prize money, those are really handy bits of info that tend not to be listed anywhere. The generic page can be kept as an overall resume and situations/info specific to each year can be found in each page. I don't know if it is worth expanding the waistcoat sponsorship thing or not. The situation appears to be resolved as some of the players have other gambling sponsors on display - but we are not really privy to how it was resolved. I presume world snooker caved in to the players, but that is just speculation (and so I would hazard about stating that in the article). SFC9394 18:05, 23 April 2006 (UTC)

Regarding, the mammoth frame that occured about an hour ago, as stated on the BBC being the longest frame in crucible history, this page, http://www.worldofsnooker.co.uk/stats/records.htm, would seem to indicate that it was the longest televised frame ever as well. --Ryan86 22:55, 1 May 2006 (UTC)

  • Could anyone advise me where would be the best place to put the complete listing of all prizes for all rounds since 1977? I have them If anyone thinks it relevant! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by The statman (talkcontribs) .
You could just add a "Prize money" section to each championship page, like the one on this page. Some of the year pages have money listed and some don't, and some are incomplete (e.g. 1983 has the winner and total, but nothing else). You could compare your figures with those already there and add/correct as necessary. SFC9394 12:54, 17 June 2006 (UTC)

Time of final finishing[edit]

Resolved: Time zone corrected to BST in the article.

I know its only a minor detail but didn't it finish at midnight whatever BST not GMT as listed in the article heading? The clocks had gone forward at the end of the March so we are in Summer Time during the World Championships. Seedybob2 10:10, 21 April 2007 (UTC)
