A. We do our best to ensure the completeness of our database. Our software may have an occasional glitch, but immediate-action alarms are in place to ensure minimal loss of data.
Q. I registered and I didn't receive my confirmation email. What's going on?
A. First, you should try using the remailer on the login homepage. Second, it's possible that our email got put into a spam filter. Third, it's possible that your ISP/email host completely blocked us from sending you email. We have found this to be the case in a few instances. We recommend Gmail if you can't get another service to work. If you're still having issues, please reach out to us via our contact page.
Q. I got my confirmation email but I can't click the link! What should I do?
A. You don't actually need to click the link to confirm your account. You can paste it into your browser if for some reason it isn't clickable.
Q. I forgot my password, can you send it to me?
A. You can reset your password using the lost password utility. It is located on the login page and it will email you a new password. You can't choose your new password.
Q. I won $ on my friend's name, can you move it to my thepokerdb?
Q. thepokerdb shows that I got 2nd in a tournament, but I actually chopped with the
chiplead so I won $3000 more than thepokerdb says. Why is that? And can you fix
it for me?
A. Unfortunately, chops happen in chat, so it would be very difficult to track them. We would need to have someone watching every final table. Therefore, we elect to report what is shown in the lobby of the tournament.
Q. I used to play on a different name, but I switched/got my name changed, can you
move it to my thepokerdb?
A. No, sorry.
Q. I won such and such tournament yesterday, why isn't it in thepokerdb yet?
A. Please contact support an we will make our best effort to recover any missing tournaments. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to recover missing historical tournaments.
Q. The site won't remember me even though I checked the "remember me" box when logging
A. We have had a few complaints from users having cookie problems with IE7. We have found that clearing your browser cache, restarting the browser and then logging in solves this problem. Whichever browser you prefer, please ensure that you have cookies enabled.
