More likely they ignored your note to put all into the private spam tournament section like recently Leiden 2016, IGT 2016, and possible soon the WCCC.
Why belittle all of the enthusiasts who post in here just because you disagree with a moderation decision?
Problem is noise here. Announcing every single engine gauntlet here x-times a week when you have your own sites with announcement, news and overviews. I consider that spam. and makes it hard to follow genuine tournaments, when moderator decide there is no distinction.

Larry and I would like to enter Komodo. Since I will be in Europe and the machines back here, setting things up might be a bit complex, but we will get it done.

The topic is the moderation decision.

Do you agree that organizers of historical tournaments are forced to make announcements outside the main forum in a place of lesser attention?
Well it was until Gerd's unnecessary insult to posters in this subforum.

Your engine is private, so there's probably little point in you normally looking in this subforum.

However, most of the other engine authors appreciate the inclusion of their engines in gauntlets and tournaments.

Besides, if enthusiasts enjoy running gauntlets and tournaments, this subforum is here for the purpose of reporting them.

Yes.

Hard to find info/announcements/discussions on physical tournaments because threads on them tend to disappear off the 1st page in the tournament section in a day which is problematic if one doesn't come here every day.

When did such tournaments stop being main news? Move this thread back to the main forum please.

Nemeton would like to participate.
For me I guess the first weekend would be best.

I only see this now as I do not generally visit this forum. Apparently I need to if I don't want to miss this type of announcements :-(
Anyway, both weekends are fine with me.

How does the engine interface with ICC? Is there some middleware or does the author enter his machine's moves into a web interface?

You need an interface - one usable one is xboard or Winboard.
