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
pgt: everyone plays tournaments differently why are you upset about that tournament, I searched for it and couldn't find it. ThunderGR is correct. I have a tournament I am playing in that has been running for 10 years. A cloning backgammon 15 game tournament it had a 7 day time limit. Anyone playing in his type of tournament should not expect it to end quickly it won't. Nothing anyone can do about how a person chooses to play. Most people play 3 day tournaments they might be slow by your standard but they are not my most peoples. Some people like to play one or 2 tournaments and that's it other enjoy playing several. Some people like to make several moves in the same game in one day, others like to play several tournaments within the time frame set out. Everyone who is a paying member is capable of setting up time limits that they like to play. Tournaments today are not the same as they were a few years ago here. Its different now, not the same type of players either. I play much different now then I did a few years ago. Anyone you takes the time to set up a tournament (and I am glad that they do) can tell you there are far less people signing up for tournaments and often its hard to get the minimum amount of players. Only the most popular like backgammon and ludo will get players. There are several tournaments that I see which are what I call superfast 1 and 2 with bonus clock. Those are for people who want a tournament to end quickly. Myself I know that these people want people who like to makes several moves in the same game in one day. I choose not to sign up for those. There is one person here who sets them up regularly I am sure you would enjoy his tournaments.
This is a game site, try not to let it upset you, there are far more important things in life. Well I have said my rant for the evening back to playing a few games
Aganju: as far as I know it counts each game type as a tournament so if I start a tournament and say it has 8 variations of backgammon that would be 8 tournaments yet you would only see the name of tournament on the tournament page.
