    I think it would be neat to see all the tournaments in which I am currently competing and have
    competed in and the round into which I made it.

    For example:

    June Round Rumble --- Ongoing --- Round 3/3.
    July 1500-1550 --- Completed --- Round 2/5.
    August 1500-1550 --- Ongoing --- Round 2/4.
    September 1500-1550 --- Completed --- Round 5/5 (Winner).

    Is this feasible?

    I can't keep track of the tournaments I'm in without a detailed spreadsheet, which is getting to be quite extensive - and I've only been playing since February. "My Active Tournaments" is too blunt an instrument to be useful. Perhaps "My Watched Tournaments" would be possible, showing Tournament Name AND Number (often only one of these is available making matching difficult) and current status in that tournament (Playing, Decided, Advanced/Retired). I'm open to suggestions for other inclusions.

    In the "Tournaments Page" I can read, at far left a header "My torunaments" and under that "My Active".

    Mine looks like this:

    True, I edited a bit to show only the important info.

    Is this what Nemesio wanted?
  6. 12 Nov '07 08:51
    I have 23 lines in "My Active" and 37 lines in "All My Tournaments" - it doesn't give Nemesio what he wants, which seems to be a personal scorecard for all tournaments he has entered, including completed ones, and how far he got in each tournament.

    If you click on each line in "All My Tournaments" all the data is there, so summarising it to make an item on the "My Home" page should be possible.

    I didn't actually know about this page, but it isn't quite what I wanted (although it's more than
    I knew about). MissOleum is right in that one of the things I would like to see is my own personal
    scorecard for each tournament. But just knowing about this is very helpful, thanks.

    I'd like to see more comment on the personal scorecard concept.

    What annoys me more than anything else is where I have been knocked out and it still appears on active because someone is playing the time limits to the max.

    Tournament 2179 In this one our friend Heng is in another group and I finished my moves in July sometime, it now November. But its still shows up as active. At this rate, it will be still active in January. Although I am not getting into debate about this player as he is playing within the current rules.

    Surely, it would be better if it moved to completed if: 'You have played all your games and cannot progress.'

    This isn't probably exactly what you are looking for either.

    But, click "My Home", "My Performance", & finally "Tournament"

    That would be a great idea.

    I like the MyPerformance breakup screens too.

    I got a similar problem, but somewhat opposite: Tournament 2639 "September 2007 Octet II 1550-1600"

    Yesterday the winner of the tournament was decided. (Arayn won his first tournament victory, well done Arayn!) Then the status was changed from "In progress" to "Finished". This led to that the tournament disappeared from my "My Active" and appeared in my "My Completed".

    But it's not finished for me! It is still active for me! I have two games left, don't I?

    My "My active" is not complete, it doesn't contain all information about my active tournaments. (But it is a minor thng, really, I can live with it.)

    There were two groups in your tournament. Your group is done with Red Cloud as the winner.
    The winner for the other group is undecided. Currently, Blanca and Aspania each have 54 points,
    the former with one game remaining, the latter with two. One or both of them will play Red Cloud
    (and each other) for the tournament title. You are no longer active in the tournament, but the
    tournament itself is still active.

    Yeah. This isn't quite what I meant either. But thanks anyway.
