    except when people set up their own tournaments apart from the site's tools.

    Hi,
    Just wondering how and why someone can enter a tournament when their tournament ranking far exceeds the maximum for the tournament in question. For example.....Bohemia51........entered the tournament, 2017 May Sprint Duel I 1415-1485, when his tournament ranking is well over 1500. Considering there are plenty of other tournaments for them to enter which are more appropriate to their ranking it doesn't seem fair to the rest of us. Is there something that can be done to keep this from happening? Why enter a tournament when your illegal opponent far outranks you? And, for that matter, why have maximum and minimum settings in place at all if no one is going to abide by them?? Any ideas or suggestions?? Thank you.

    Peace, Bob

    He most probably joined when his rating was within the range.

    You can only join when your rating is within the range, so to get into a lower-ranked tournament you must lose a heap of games quickly (for example, by resigning your weaker games but delaying the others). It's called sandbagging, and there are quite a few people on this site that do it. Not sporting, but not illegal either, and impossible to prevent.
