Hey

[rant]

Been playing here for a while, and enjoy playing a lot of tournament games. I'm not such a great player and my favourite tournys are the banded ones since I make some progress ... Anyway the point is that I keep an eye on up-coming tournaments.

What's annoying me is the Long Haul tournaments. Take a look at the one that's open at the moment "Long Haul Split XXIX" - it distinctly says ** Only for those not in a hurry. ** inside the box. Have a look at the players though ... how many of them are regular players involved in a lot of games and a lot of moves. More to the point, how many of them move several times a day? Think of how many people really are looking for a long haul tournament to play since they are excluded from the faster ones by practicalities? How many of the entrants to these tournaments are just players who will join any and every tournament they can and do this by checking the board every day?? It's fairly inconsiderate behaviour ...

What we need is a way to restrict the entrance to these tournaments to those with their "Move Frequency" in their profiles set to one of the slow ones, or at least a gentlemen's agreement not to enter if you move "Multiple Times A Day"

What say you??
