Playing in express tournaments, I often find myself logged off while thinking about a bid or play. Upon logging in, I find that I cannot return to the tournament.

There should better warning before logoff. Also, the ability to rejoin after returning.

The logoff Removal from tournament after 30s is automatic and part of the conditions of contest.
There is also a visual warning that <your nickname> will be logged off removed from tournament in n seconds.
But there is (AFAIK) no audio warning, which would be easy to implement.
People have been complaining about this for many years now.
As they have about the decreased frequency of Express Tournaments, for that matter.

You shouldn't be logged off, you should just be removed from the tournament. You only get logged out of BBO automatically if there's a problem with your Internet connection.

An audio warning would be helpful. Easy to miss the visual warning.

I imagine something like the alarm clocks from the beginning of "Money" and the message "Make your call, or you will be removed from tournament" with a 10 to 0 countdown.
