Hi. I have been setting up TM for our group of friends of over 20 avid bridge players from across the globe, including US, Canada, UK, UAE and Pakistan. We have 4 players amongst us who are called up to do the set up when I am not available to do the set up.
The problem that we invariably run into is due to generally unknown reasons and definitely when after bbo initiates the TM creation and found all 8 players online, yet before the actual creation is completed one of the players looses connectivity and ultimately a fatal error is displayed after a considerable delay. Usually there is no message and if one tries to set up again, exceeding the number allowed is received.
In order to avoid time wastage and also to actually allow the flexibility to set up more than 1 TM by qualified players who have experience of setting up TMs, I would like to propose to bbo management to increase the number of TM anyone can set up from 1 to 2. I would also like to suggest that during the set up of a TM, the availability of all 8 players is monitored real time after the initial check up and TM set is aborted straight away whenever any players looses connectivity. This will help in saving unnecessary delay in getting the TM underway as the player setting it up will be able to reinitiate the creation of TM process with the actual number of participants online and keeping the seat vacant for the missing player. Many thanks in anticipation from anyone here or the bbo support team as this must be a problem encountered by most of directors who set up TMs frequently.

I think you can put +allavail+ in the description of the team match, and the server will wait for all the players to be online instead of causing a fatal error.
