Hi!
I'm trying to attract attention of administrators to serious issue that affected many tournaments. Sometimes when you skip a player you give a loss instead of a win. In tournaments it affects the distribution of prize places and causes negative feedback. Please give us a tool or a method to fix the results of affected games untill the issue will be fixed.

The best workaround in my eyes is NOT TO SKIP a move. Instead just wait till the maximum time of the match is used. Then always the player with more remaining time wins in tournaments.

Message of such games:
"Game abandoned
The game was abandoned automatically because the players did not manage to finish it before the next round of the tournament. The player with the most remaining thinking time wins the game."

I always wait till end of maximum time because of this time accounting bug affecting Tokaido and several games (e.g. 6nimmt) here on bsw:

Is there a way to advance games in tournaments that are not being played/players' turns skipped? Or is everyone else held up until the maximum time is reached?

Go back into tournament settings and change the
Registration starts ___ days before the tournament starts to like 300 or something. I haven't had an issue with that in a very long time but at least once had it not want to open registration instantly even though it was a tournament starting like a week later. I either changed the number to something large (and unimportant really) just to make it update the feature or I deleted the entire tournament and remade all the same details with same name over from scratch and it worked that time. I don't recall if it worked to just mess with the parameter or required a full restart.

thanks for yr fast reply !
My account BGA is ended and I can't renew now. I'm sure I set 30 days before, it's possible to verify ? I hope inscriptions will start the day of start...

And for sure you're welcome, if you want to discoer this game ;)
