Waiting lists

Waiting lists

An option to remove oneself from the waiting list for a tournament might be useful. No immediate need on my part at present, but people's schedules change, etc.

Not sure...

Might be useful, right... But what to do if people's schedules change once the games started ? I made this way to reduce forfeits, players shouldn't enter waiting list if they are not sure to play the games until the end... Feel free to tell me what you think about that.

Fair point

Just a suggestion, I'm honestly not sure which way of handling it is superior, I just noticed the lack of an option and thought I'd mention it.

Waiting lists

Enabling to remove oneself from a waiting list should be given a higher priority.
Recently, I "played" a go tournament where all 6 opponents were non-starters. The high percentage of non-starters (not only in go but also in poker and chess) could AND SHOULD drastically be reduced by creating a possibility to step down before the tornament starts.

Yes, indeed... that followed a registering option I had to create to increase the number of (real) active players. It worked but that's the bad side effect. I don't think it should open the possibility to retire from waiting lists but I have to find a way to reduce forfeits.
