as title says, why? I cannot find anything about that in the FAQ.
You can create a private tournament and go in the advanced setting and set it to no restriction.
Public tournaments (the colored ones) are created by Lidraughts automatically. Normal users can only create private tournaments.
@Bobkingmen3 does it mean lidraughts.org/tournament/1gUu3iuF and creator Alex1234 is not a normal user? By public I mean everyone can join. I can create only private ones that means I need to share a link, and without that noone can join.
ok, automagically, today my tournaments are publicly available :)
Oh yah the names are actually used differently its kind of confusing.
Did you somehow click in the password box when creating the tournament and that's why it was doing that? It could be as simple as first day accounts can't create tournaments or something like that.
Tournaments are only private when you add a password under 'advanced settings'. Otherwise they will be visible in the tournament schedule like all other tournaments.
I've seen before that some password managers automatically fill the password field when you create a new tournament. Possibly this happened when you created your first tournaments, making them private unintentionally?
Ok, you managed to find it out. Yes indeed, I have opened advanced section, and yes my lastPass application uses some password there. Sorry for confusion.
Thanks and cheers, Piotr
