There is no way to do that as far as I know. I would ask them to cancel their registration and if they dont follow your request you can remove them after the start.

If you are using an Include List I would expect that editing them out of the List and then modifying tournament would remove them; I have not tried this however, curious to know if anyone has.

Your expectation is wrong. The list will be checked at the moment when they register. At least this was the way it worked last time when I tried.

Thanks. In that case I join those waiting for a deregister function.

The Virtual Game I run was start-delayed by FIVE minutes today: first by an offline pair while +allavail+ was on, then by the discovery that a registered player was playing in another tournament. I didn't know what to do about this (answer, which didn't occur to me at the time: delete +allavail+ from description) and it went on, and on, and on. Finally the player finished the tournament and logged off and I was able to zap the pair from the list.

Similar problem: you get a sub from the list and they quit after a board and table history indicates that the sub left through frustration with the result when, as so often is the case, they are the true cause of their own poor score through insane bidding. Easy to get a new sub and happy for all when it happens, but you don't really want that sub back in any future game. Would be nice if BBO would NOT send the invite to anyone on the sub list you are ignoring when you use "Substitute...any".

You do have custom include and exclude lists you can use for that purpose. Our club puts members on the include list and badly behaved subs on the exclude list, and ticks both boxes when setting up the event. So far we haven't had any issues with that.

Same situation in our small club - include and exclude lists works well during registration. If for any reason you need to add subs later then the exclude list is not working. Last night our mostly friendly and nice play was seriously disturbed by a rude person already on the exclude list who got in as a "Sub- any".
I think BBO could check against this list when inviting random subs.

That would seem normal and uncontroversial. I'm surprised this isn't already done, although I haven't noticed it because our exclude list is short and I now use robot subs unless I know the person.

The include/exclude list is maintained on the host. It would be a good idea to invite neither of ignored nor excluded players. Another nice feature would be to be able to switch to subs that fit to the registration conditions.
