    ...........the list of tournaments victories page.
    Can't they be removed?
    I guess it doesn't take that much time and effort to delete them from the tournaments overview page, they didn't deserve their victories, so why are they still amongst honest players who took their time and wasted their brain thinking about their moves in order to fight and win their games?

    If there's any other ideas that need implementing it might be best they come through you Ravello, you seem to have a hold over Russ 😉

    Where cheats have been expelled, could the tournament victories be handed to the "losing" finalists? Something similar happens in several sports.

    The idea has been put forward before, and I think everyone agrees it's a good idea. I'm also sure that the only reason it hasn't been implemented already is that it is very difficult to undo tournament results and the coding efforts would have to be enourmous to take these sort of things into account...

    worse - who would the victory go to? there are several examples where scores are even amongst the other finalists...

    And also the problem that the people knocked out in earlier rounds by the cheater may be more deserving of the win than the person who lost in the last round.
