Hello, I was wondering, do member-created online tournaments disappear if they don't start for awhile? This has happened twice to me, and both times it had been a long time (several months) since the tourney was created. However, neither of them I wanted gone: one was a special tourney that I was going to invite only certain people to (no one had joined yet though.) I re-created that one, but just today I realized that another tournament that I made awhile ago was gone, and there was about 11 or more people registered for it. I do not remember who these people were, so apparently a tournament they wanted to play in is gone forever. I just wanted to find out if this is the rule that this happens, or is a glitch. If it's deliberate, I don't think this is a good idea at all.
Same thing happened to me just a couple of dayes ago!
This has happened to me as well - twice, most recently today. I've filed a support ticket with chess.com for it, hope they find out something.
I had several other tournaments for registration, and if it was any "time" thing involved the oldest one should have dissapeared first, but that is not the case.
My tournament at http://www.chess.com/tournament/very-high-rated-tournament-iii which had +80 players simply disappeared. I logged on today and it wasn't there.
I thought it was something I did...
What i found out last time was that there is a 90-day expiry on registered tournaments, i.e. if it doesn't start within 90 days from its creation it is simply deleted.
Is tht documented, or just your "discovery?"
Its not mentioned anywhere on the site help/faq, but it has been answered by moderators as far back as 6 years ago:
