Ok. This has been mentioned before.
You seem keen, and if it were possible for Russ to tweak the site so that you could bump people up (or down) a few groups before the tourney starts, then fine, I'd support it for a 3 month trial.
The trouble is that everyone who plays in tourneys has paid membership, so if you p*** people off, it hits the site financially. I think this needs more than just willingness to do the work - e.g. who is liable if your password is pinched and alot of people get kicked out of tourneys?
I think that tweaking the site to give a very few people extra access rights is likely to be a lot of work, and there are a few more important tournament fixes (like the under 6 games p1200 being allowed bug), so alot depends on the site maintainers.
So Rec'd in principle, depending on if and when Russ has time to do the work,
