We also consulted the Tournament Directors on all solutions before launching them. It is tricky to find something that is efficient and pleases everyone but we will continue to monitor input from all directions and possibly make further changes to come up with the best solution.
I was one of the loudest complainers, so I feel obligated to say something positive. I understand that the changes were a response to our complaints, and I appreciate that you've been working hard to come up with a solution. And before I go on, I want to stress that this is one of the most stable
web-based games I've ever seen and overall I really enjoy it and I'm happy with 98% of it.
I do not think the current solution to the Game Finder/Tournament window is correct, and I really hope you consider my suggestion. Which is:
There should be two pull-downs, of the same type as the original Tournament pull-down.
One should be for current/ongoing tournaments, the other for historical/completed tournaments. (The latter could be replaced by the pop-up that you have now.)
There should be a two-choice radio button beside these two pull-downs, which toggles between them.
The default is "current" which is what is probably used 95% of the time or better. When this button is selected (in its default position) then the Ongoing Tournaments pull-down is active and the other one is not. By selecting "historical" a user de-activates the Ongoing Tournaments pull-down and enables the other one.
I hope my persistent complaints about this issue have not overshadowed the fact that I love this site and am a big supporter of most of the things you've done.
