    To all,

    What are the requirements/qualifications needed to create a tournament? Where would I find the information to make this happen? THANKS!

    Hi to start a tournament you need to be a leader of a club with at least 10 members. So you would need to create one or find a club leader who wishes to give up their club (I think there might be a lot of those about) and ask to take it over, need to message Russ with agreement of current leader (or not if they have disappeared)......

    I think clan leaders can also set up private tournaments, but I am not so sure about that.

    Clan leaders also have the facility but there's a qualifying member number there too. For clan or club leaders the tournament is restricted to subscribers who are members of the particular clan or club. None of us has the facility to create tournaments open to all subscribers on the site, that is a privilege presently restricted to admin.

    There is a possibility by creating a private tournament and publishing the key...

    Oh yes, I'd forgotten that one, you need to be a qualified clan leader (at least 5 clan members) to do that.
