good play chess i like it
I created a tournament yesterday, but it does not appear on my upcoming tournaments list. Is this normal?
Did you create a min and/or max rating on the tournament ? and if so, are your own ratings within that criteria ?
Yes and yes. I've already joined it! I thought that might be the reason it is invisible (namely, it would shift to a different category) but other tournaments I have joined still appear on the upcoming list, such as the upcoming thematic chess.com tournament.
If for example you are rated 1200 and you create a tournament for members rated 1400 - 1600, you won't see those on your page as you're not eligible to join them being outside of that ratings bracket.You can only see tournaments that you are eligible to join.However, if you log out, then click on the tournaments page (whilst NOT logged in) you will see the tournaments on the page there.
Kohai, I tried that experiment and it did indeed work as you said.
However, it is a 960 tournament with range 1300-1600. My 960 rating is 1308, so I am in that range. My normal chess rating is >1600 which would kick me out. However, since it is 960, I hope and trust that the rating range applies to 960, not the normal, or?
The name of the tournament is "No Blindside 960" if you would like to confirm.
This one ? http://grab.by/9WXz
People are complaining because i take so long to move. I do, but i never use vacation or timeout. Isn't this still legal for me to carry on like this? (Yes, i know the others are gettting annoyed, especially razorlove2bowl)
On your tournaments page, its shown at the top under "tournaments i am currently directing", thats where the image link above came from
yes it should do
Question: I've played 5 online games, and tried to enter a tournament, but still got this message:
You must have completed at least 5 "Online Chess" games to compete in this tournament.
Could someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
Try checking your games history :)
Click on View, then on the right side of the game, click on Details. That shows if the game was rated or unrated. The 5 needed before you can play in tournaments must be rated
Hi all. I am trying to create my first tournament. I filled out the necessary paperwork but it doesn't show up on upcoming tournaments. Many say start ASAP but I don't know how to add that. Help please.
I read some other posts and got it straightened out. All is well.
