    The site already calls it multi day tourneys and online chess should be called multi day chess simply because it is.

    What is the timeout ratio?

    Timeout ratio is the percentage of your games you lose because you ran out of time.

    Don't know if someone has requested this before. Can team matches be allowed to have the option of no vacation? It's only an option on tourneys and not matches

    How do new players with no chess.com rating sign up for a tournament?

    I used to be pretty good in rated over-the-board play: my Canadian rating was around 2000 back in the 1980s and '90s, but I haven't played competitively for about 25 years now.

    I am new to this site and see live tournaments are going every hour.  Is the 15/10 format the longest time control in these tournaments?  Ever have a 20/20 or 30/30 tournament?

    15/10 is the longest live tournament. You can try correspondence tournaments, but those are really slow (often taking years to finish).

    Guys, don't know where I can find this info- does a tournament appear in the app version of Chess.com?

    It's where I play my online games and feel like participating in the next big tournament! Thanks!

    it depends on your pairings system or if you play elimination rules. typically all winners or Black piece players earning draws will advance. So if you have 10 groups with 8 players each, the top 4 players winning or drawing advance. essntially, the top half of each group advances until you have a winner overal in each group. If your tourney is a round robin where everyone plays evryone in a group, then the winners advance and in the event that there are multiple people with equal standings, the placement of winners is determined by the tiebraker margin, with players earning more tiebreaking points based on their wins against higher rated players.
