    Hello Staff!

    I need more powers as Tournament Director to deal with unfair players

    I demand these powers for Tournament Directors:

    1) Kick any player out from running tournament

    2) Possibility to adjudicate and set-up results of tournament games

    3) Confirm before inviting into next round or sealing the trophy.

    Thanks

    I re-edited it too, again.

    This is a problem having roots in cheating.

    Wouldn't a logical course of action would be to report suspected members to chess.com staff? Why do you want to take the law into your own hands?

    No, it wouldn't!

    Period.

    I wrote reasons it in the OP before kohai edited it. Chess.com's cheat detection isn't fast and effective enough.

    The OP is suggestions & feedback for tournament TD's.

    Please keep it on topic and not turn this into a cheat related thread.

    Thanks

    That is the crucial question!

    Yes, we can trust some, others we can't.

    So we would have trustworthy and untrustworthy TDs.

    I therefore demand that chess.com gives me the power to usurp control of tournaments run by untrustworthy TDs.

    ...

    ...

    Now can we trust usurping TDs?

    Believe it or not, tournaments usually have judges and directors, who are above the bots and have the powers to do such things.

    This is exactly I demand here.

    It would be nice to have those powers, but chess.com maybe doesn't trust us TDs lol

     Good idea, that way next time I direct a tournament I can actually win!

     All joking aside, I think its a good idea, also maybe like if you set a result or kick someone from the tournament, all their remaining games are still played and not forfeited so that way you cant screw them.

    Well, again.

    When I am directing a tournament, I am responsible it will not get spoiled by cheaters and the trophy will be sent to the best real player, not some cheater.

    Understand now?

    How do you know who cheats? who are you to say who cheats and who doesnt?

    Just my opinion.

    By the analysis, very similar to SteveC's.

    would u really waste all that time when you could simply report them?

    so instead hes gonna do it himself, and take hours just to find out if someone is cheating, then kick them even if they were legit to begin with.. no thanks, I would rather chess.com check people.

    Yes, it will take hours. Still better than months or years.

    Btw, I consider my methods trustworthy.
