Can't Tourney?

Postby Woodruff on Tue Apr 30, 2013 5:43 pm

Because I haven't played a game in a month?

What kind of stupid restriction is that? Just because I haven't played in a game doesn't mean that I'm likely to not finish the tournament...it's no indication at all.

Someone couldn't leave the site for a month (perhaps to prepare for finals, though that certainly isn't my situation), come back and want to play in a tournament?

I understand I can just play one game and it's fixed, but it just seems like a dumb restriction.

I don't know the details of the situation you're referring to, but in general:
When you haven't played a game in a month, you are removed from the scoreboard, and it becomes impossible for someone to invite you to a game. You can still join a game of your own volition, of course, but you cannot be invited, which makes it difficult for organisers who use manual invites.

I had this situation come up quite recently, when there were actually two people in one of my tournaments who hadn't played a game in a month and I couldn't invite into their games. I had to send them messages with the game numbers and passwords and in the end it was not a huge deal, but a nuisance all the same.

If this resembles the situation you are in, ask the organiser to send you the game number to join manually. Once you've take a turn in one game, he'll be able to invite you to others normally.

sure, you're a regular poster but most who don't play any games aren't. they are new to the site.

this rule protects us from them. it's just bad luck it prevents you as well.

but as you said there is a simple solution. play a game.

Ah, excellent outside-of-the-box thinking (which I'm not particularly good at). Thanks. I'll pass that on to him.

(It's still a dumb situation, and could be separated from the "not on the scoreboard" aspect, I would think.)
