Please stop spamming the tournament page. There are too many tournaments long overdue with not many players assigned.
Please only post tournaments that people want to play.

Just a suggestion here, but I’m thinking all team tournaments should be made with the parameters of 4 persons per team. As it stands now, we’re having a hard time finding 5 players per team. So until things pick up (if they pick up), I would suggest keeping the limit set to 4 people per team.

Subject: Re:
rabbitoid: Only paying members with Brain Rook or higher membership level can create any number of tournaments with various parameters to set - one or more game types (including a random game selection), time control, accessibility (public or private), tournament type (round robin, single elimination, ...), optional prize for the winner, etc.

Not sure where is the limit .... ;)

people if you dont want manny games then dont join that simple but sometimes people make to manny tournaments so i kinda agree on that part.

Subject: Re:
Clandestine 1: creation is already limited to rooks, so apparently that's no help. I'd prefer a fixed limit (small) of open, that is not yet started tournaments.

Always, supposing that Filip is willing to take up programming again.

Tournament creation based on membership status but a sensible limit as to how many tournaments one can create. Active tournaments should not count in the total tho as I can foresee some slow pokes tying everything up.

My suggestion is one tournament per game per week. Maximum 30 days before tournament starts and 30 days after. And tournament must have unique name

I agreed with the fact about too many tournaments are created that not even me that i play so much here cant catch up... I like the idea about who can create tournaments based on membership status (lets say we black rooks can create truly as many as we want ! so is good incentive to have more want to get to that level ... i believe goldtoken does that even if they dont have black rook level but they have platinum which is very similar ) . Then use the vacations days as parameters : 35 days = 35 tournaments a year x each game i would also limit ! So a normal black rook can just create only 35 tournaments of battle boats for all year and no more ( of course that if he/she has all days of vacations still available so if someone has just 30 days left then can create just 30 tournaments of each one )
Create something for this in terms of $$$ so if someone wants to create more tournaments must give you some greens :)
limitation of course about when you can create a new tournament if that is even possible there are 2444 tournaments listed for now few are suppose to start in 6 months .. non sense ....and one of the creator of so many tournaments made barely 70 moves in one day ..all this is illogical ... why i want to create a tournament and then not even join it ???

Fencer: Hi Fencer,

I think the number of tournaments you can start should reflect your membership status. You could reach out to the site for possible ideas on this. I think some of the ideas Beach mentioned would be very helpful.

I’m going to take a closer look at the parameters you have set up for tournaments and see if I can come with additional suggestions.

Thank you!
Terry

Fencer:  for my 2 cents worth I think you should only be allowed to schedule new tournaments to start within say a 14 day waiting time,  also the 30 days to stay on tournament board after the start date is excessive, perhaps a maximum time it can stay on the board is perhaps 5 days after start date.  It drives me nuts to see tournaments posted for the next  2 years  and then see started tournaments stuck on page 1 of the board for an additional 30 days after start date.  
Also I think you should only be allowed to post perhaps 3 tournaments at a time. 
This would certainly clean up the board, and get rid of someone posting 100's of tournaments for the next 2 years. No one needs to post tournaments starting over a year from now
I stopped looking to join anything  a few months ago as I too find hard to find new tournaments

Subject: Re: Brainking Tournament Page
TerryS: I agree too, and something I complained about awhile back is people joining tournaments and putting games up on waiting list when they have hundreds or thousands of games going. I'm phasing out, but I have one going that started two years ago and am waiting for the person to run out of vacation days. I learned to watch for limits and number of games they have before taking a game off waiting list

This is a general observation and comment on the current status of the site’s tournament page.

It seems like it is out of control. There are currently over 2,400 tournaments listed. I think it is fair to say that it would be impossible to thumb through all of these. I’ve also noticed that a number of members have posted dozens of tournaments, I find it frustrating to find a tournament I would like to join.

Some ideas I had was to completely reset the tournaments to zero, and perhaps set a limit the number of tournaments a member can create at any given time.

I enjoy the variety of tournaments, but as I mentioned it’s a little overwhelming to scroll through all of them.

Thanks for reading my rambling

Just ONE more Team needed and Sep 2018 Dice Poker 6D VIII Tourny can start in 4 days time

Then we have Scrambled Eggs & Chess starting in 9 days but only have ONE team entered in both

After that we have a bunch more lined up but only the odd team entered in any of them

PLEASE take a look and sign up for any that you can

Come on Big Bosses & Captains, the Team Tournaments need some supporting

Sep 2018 Dice Poker 6D VIII - Needs at least 2 more Teams to get going (late starting)

Sep 2018 64 Battlefields XVI (Chess) - Has NO teams entered so far (starts in 2 days)

Sep 2018 Mike Wazowski's Frog Finder #11 - Just one more Team to start (in 5 days)

Sep 2018 Nackgammon Championship X - Has 4 Teams, and can start on time

The 12 Team Tournaments after this have hardly any Teams entered, which is odd as there are alot of popular ones to play in, Knight Fight, Dark Battleboats, Dice Chess, Ludo and more.....

Please have a look & enter Teams where you can.....

To all game in which I'm now timing out: My wife has passed away and I won't be on for a while. I see 16 games have timed out all ready. My wife died this past Saturday. I was trying to get back into playing here a bit. Perhaps in a while.
