If I joined a pool by mistake or don't want to play, how do I get out? 

Login and view the pool you want to leave. From the menu, click the "Remove Me" option. This will remove your picks and other information from the pool. Please note this is not reversible. Also, keep in mind that some pool manager's will restrict players from leaving the pool - the "Remove Me" will be grayed out in that case so you will need to contact the pool manager to be removed. 
How do I include someone who doesn't have internet access (Offline Manager)? 

The "Offline Manager" is a tool for a pool manager to add players to his/her pool when that player does NOT EVER intend login (e.g. offline) to that account.
To do this, view the pool page, drop down the "Manager Actions" menu and select the "Manage off-Line players" option. From here add an offline player account (if not already existing) and then add the offline player to the pool.
Next, the pool manager can make picks for this offline player by viewing the pool page, select the "Manager Actions" menu and selecting the "Administer Picks" option. 
If I am a pool manager, can I remove someone from my pool? 

Yes you can. Login into your TourneyTime account and click the pool under the "Pools I Manage" heading. From here you will be able to select the player(s) you want to remove. Please be advised, this is not reversible. 
Am I able to upgrade my pool after making my payment?

Change the size of your pool, click "Update Settings" then complete your payment. Please note, your pool will lock during the upgrade process, so pay immediately in order to keep your pool active.
