If I set up a tournament with a predetermined starting time, would I be able to change the starting time at some later point?
There is no true "predetermined starting time". It is a time the TD might start a tournament.
Yes you can change the time.
@TadDude: Well, by "predetermined," I meant whatever time I set the tournament to begin, as opposed to an Auto start.
Helpful as always; many thanks!
You can set any date you want. That just changes the auto-start to manual start and buries your tournament at the end of this list.
The date you choose is just a hint to the registrants about a start date.
Go to the end of the list to find upcoming tournaments like this:
http://www.chess.com/tournament/evans-gambit-accepted2 "Starts on Oct 14, 2011 @ 3:00am (1 month 24 days ago)"
http://www.chess.com/tournament/russian-tournament-3 "Starts on Oct 15, 2011 @ 3:00am (1 month 23 days ago)"
@TadDude: I think I understand this better now. I can arbitrarily set any starting date and time I want, but the tournament won't start until I manually activate it, regardless. Do I have that correct?
That is ideal. I was afraid that if I set a time, then the tournament might start too early before I would have enough registrants.
Thanks a lot!
