    Please!! Please post more tournaments! Why is there such a drought at the moment? I'm mainly on this site for the tournaments but there is nothing lately...

    Not a single 'December' tournament yet. 🙁

    You will need to be quick when they do eventually appear, because they will fill up very quickly.

    Well, there's 7 December octets, but that's only for 8 eight persons each obviously. And there's 2 1/0 December splits, but then you have to move each day, which isn't for everybody on the site. Both tournament types require a lot of concurrent games, which isn't for everybody either.

    9 tournaments in 6 days isn't a lot. More would be appreciated. Especially different kinds of tournaments.

    I missed all of those. Maybe I should have followed my own advice, but if I don't blink sometimes then my eyeballs get all dried out. 😞

    Is it just me or are there much fewer tournaments these days than there were a couple of years ago? Is there a problem with funding this site? Is this site losing it and going downhill? There seems to be a lot of people paying subscriptions, so why so few tournaments?

    But how many private touraments are there now?

    Since clubs were introduced to the site people have been creating their own tournaments.

    It would be nice to see a few more tournaments for 1200-1300 bunnies like me

    Using feedback works. I used it to send a message asking for more tournaments. I got reply in 20 minutes and there were more tournaments set up shortly after that. My guess: there are too many forums for the admins to reasonably keep track of all the discussions, but feedback will get noticed. (I've built and run website; I always valued direct feedback highly.)

    These numbers include the Private Club tournaments created.

    It shows that admin are creating fewer tournaments.
