HEAD TD TOURNAMENT CENTER

 

Login to the Head TD Tournament Center at:  http://tourneys.igl.net/tk/headtd/

Enter your TD name and password and click the link for your League. 

 

The following is a brief introduction to the links found on your menu and what they will enable you to do.  If you have any questions after reading this document, please address them with your Head Administrator.

 

Administer Tournaments

This utility will allow you to administer any tournament created by any TD on your League.  Clicking on this link will take you to a list of all of the tournaments scheduled for your League.  Choose the tournament number you want to host from the list, and from that point on it’s as if you’re administering your own tournament.

 

The Date column is also a hyperlink that will allow you to see when a tournament was first created and if any changes were made to the tourney date or time it is to be hosted.  It also allows you see who made the changes to the tourney after it was created.

 

Admin Tourneys – Direct

This tool is used to login to a tournament by either Tourney ID (jump) Number or by T.D Name.

 

To login in by Tourney ID (jump) number, enter the number then select 'Login.'

 

To login by T.D. Name, select the T.D. from the drop down menu, then select 'Login.' The specified T.D.'s tournaments will be sorted by date starting at the bottom of the list, and then by time from the top down within the current date. Tournaments are listed by T.D. Name, I.D. #, Date, Time (Eastern), Ladder, Format, and Status. Click the Tourney I.D.# to login.

 

Award Tournament Medal (Only HTDs with this permission)

This will allow you to award a tournament medal to a Platinum or Diamond member of your league.  There are five medals available:  Golden Shield of Assistance, Blue Cross of Sportsmanship, Battle of the Sexes, Tournament of Champions, and Battle of the Leagues.  To award any of them, simply enter the player’s name in the box and choose the appropriate medal from the drop-down list.  The player will receive an email notifying them that they’ve received an award, and the awarding of the medal will be shown in your ‘Daily News’.  Each medal can only be awarded to a particular player one time. 

 

Change T.D. Status

This tool is used to change the current hosting status of a T.D.

 

Select a T.D. from the drop down menu, then select 'Change T.D. Status.' Select a status from the drop down menu, then select 'Change T.D. Status.' An automated E-mail will be generated and sent to the T.D. notifying them of their new status.    The available choices are:

 

In Training:

T.D.'s can play in tournaments, but are not able to host tournaments while in Training Status. T.D.'s are in training status when they are added to the T.D. team and must be moved to 'Active' status to administer tournaments.

 

Active:

T.D.'s can administer and play in tournaments while on active status. Active status is the default status for all T.D.'s, and T.D.'s will purge from the T.D. program while on this status if they do not administer a tournament within the purge timeframe. 

 

Active-Exempt:

T.D.'s can administer and play in tournaments while on active-exempt status. T.D.'s on this status will not purge from the T.D. program while on this status, even if they do not host within the purge timeframe.*

Vacation:

T.D.'s cannot administer or play in tournaments while on vacation status. T.D.'s on this status will not purge from the T.D. program while on this status, even if the timeframe exceeds the purge timeframe.*

 

*If a T.D.'s Ladder/League account purges, or is kicked while on this status the T.D. account will removed.
