As some of you may have noticed this weekend in the tourneys I was hosting, I wished the players luck but changed my "holler in the lobby if you need me"....to "holler in the lobby or Eliters messenger if you need me". Well that was as much for my own practice as yours...cuz now its official. If you need to contact a TD during a tournament regarding Timers this is to be done on the tournament page in the Eliters messenger. Timers are no longer running in the lobby...but in the elite messenger as it is timestamped at moment of entry and verifies the accuracy of the timers.
You may also used this messenger to notify the TD if you cannot return to the Rock or Bistro due to Yahoo! issues.
This is new to both the TDs and Players so patience on both sides will be required...but the more we use it the more of a habit it will become.
If you would like to read the official rule regarding this please see post : 66438 in the general club
