I've just logged on the run a tournament and have noticed what looks like dustbins next to the registered players names but I cant find anything that tells me what they do or how to use them. Can anyone help? I don't want to boot someone off by mistake.

I think it's pretty self-explanatory: click on the trash can if you want to remove the registration of a pair.

This is useful if:
  • someone registers with a robot by mistake, which seems to happen more often than it should and the player struggle to deregister (most commonly near game time)
  • a registered player is offline and you have +allavail+ set so the tournament fails to start. It is particularly useful as you can boot the offending pair without removing the +allavail+ flag which might boot players temporarily offline.
  • an unwanted pair registers and exposes a flaw in your settings/custom list

I don't work for BBO and any advice is based on my BBO experience over the decades
