New games added every day

yoursisnodisgrace

I am not sure what is happening but every day that I sign on there are four or five new games.  They do not belong to any tournaments.  I am ow up to 30 games which is about twenty more than I like.   I do not know what is causing my account to continue to add new games.  How do I stop it?  HELP!

Yeah I'm seeing tournament games. Maybe you joined a tournament and forgot. I just got 14 new games or so the other day because I joined a chess.com tournament.

Or you advanced in a tour to the next round.

You had 1 new tournament recently start, so that would explain some of the games.

What other games are you asking about?

Actually you've had three tournaments started within past week:

1. El Rey Negro vs Chess 960 - Chess Variants -> which started on June, 30th and fired 2 new games for you

2. Scotch Tournament -> which started yesterday adding 3 new games

3. English Tournament -> The same as Schotch Tournament above

So, if you don't remember or are not sure about when/why you signed up for those tournaments, you might want to have a look at your Tournaments->Joined

However, if you're talking about your non-tournament challenges, that's another story. When someone challenges you, even your friends, the challenge DOES NOT get accepted automatically. At one point or another you must have accepted the challenge.

Still just to be sure, you might want to visit Settings->Daily->Max # of Games and set the number to... say 10 or 15. (It does not effect tournament games)

Thank you for your input.  I did change the Max number of games.  I hope that solve the situation.

Max number of games only helps with people sending you direct challenges. If you sign up for tourneys, move to a second round in a tournament and it starts, or you create any random seeks, that value is not looked at.

Btw, I just noticed that in two of the three recently started tournaments you are the TD (English and Scotch). Could it be that a while ago you created a couple of tournaments and just now they are getting started one by one?
