Here are the last 13 games of TTY

11 ongoing games, 1 disqualification and 1 paused game.

Player Sanchai is disqualified. Game is still open.
Last activity on this account: 22-09-2022.

The game between Lopez and Willyam123 is paused since October 2021.
Last activity Lopez 21-10-20223, Willyam123 16-11-2022.


IMHO someone should ask them to un-pause.

@Lopez_de_la_Osa will you unpause the game?

Edit: also a bit surprised that the game in which Sanchai is disqualified, still is ongoing.
Or is the clock for the other player still running?
Wouldn’t it be logical to close a game if one of the players is disqualified?

In a tournament, people who lose by time are disqualified, but other games of the tournament continue.


In a little more than a week this game is finished.
I just noticed that the clock is still running.

Moderators also have this:

I’d prefer it though if the Tournament director would ask to do so …

The tournament director has left long ago.

Perhaps the TD should have thought of a succession plan for another director when starting a tournament that will likely outlast them. If they are no longer here, that makes me sad, and I think while this experiment has had it’s moments, not sure if I want to continue to round two with no director. It’s hard to understand why people leave, and Life certainly can get in the way.


Could @anoek perhaps put another person in place as Tournament director?

And IF yes — would you perhaps volunteer, @Lys?
I think that you would be the best, as you have already documented so much of the progress (or lack thereof!) of the tournament. And hardly any extra work, I’d think …


We miss u @S_Alexander
