Frequently Asked Questions
Can I change my password?
Yes, we know the computer assigns horrible passwords. For that reason we allow
you to change it to something easier to remember. From your main page that
lists all your brackets (you can get to it my selecting "my brackets"
from the menu), select "change password" from the upper right. Enter
your new password and you are set.
What do the circles and red dots in front of my brackets mean?
Circles indicate the Tournament. Select it and you will be taken to the
information page. Red dots are those brackets you have created in that
tournament. Select the red dots and you will be taken to the bracket.
I'm having problems with "bye" games; the computer keeps assigning
byes where I don't want them.
You have two options. 1)Leave the entire bracket blank or 2) Enter something in
each team space. Remember, if you enter just the seed you are fine. The
computer recognizes that as a player.
Can I remove a bye once the computer has assigned it?
Yes. Go into the "Edit Bracket" page. Click the game link that has the
incorrect bye. Enter either the team name and/or the seed in the appropriate
box. You must enter at least one of these. Click the "Reset Winner"
I advanced the wrong player can I fix it?
Yes. Go into the quick set-up and make the correction. The computer will
adjust. Even if you advanced the wrong person for 3 rounds, the computer will
make the correction.
How do I delete a bracket?
1) Open the bracket you want to delete 2) select "Edit Tourney Info (or Delete)"
from the menu 3) you will find a delete button at the bottom NOTE: This will
only delete the bracket NOT the tournament
How do I delete a Tournament?
In order to delete a tournament you can't have any brackets created. This
means, if you have brackets you must individually delete each bracket following
the steps above.
How do the "Notes" work?
Bracket Notes (in the Edit Tourney Info page) follow the bracket. Game notes (in the
Edit Bracket page) follow just the game.
What if I have a Tournament with several brackets that occur in different
Your best bet is to create new tournaments for each bracket so that you can
enter the location for the bracket. The only downfall to doing it this way is
added time setting up your brackets because you have to select "My
Brackets" to get back to your original screen and start over.
I misspelled a player's name, but didn't realize until after Round 2, can I
Yes you can. The computer will automatically change the information all the way
through the bracket. All the previous games and scores will be preserved.
