Why does a player show as Not Started, Still Playing or Currently Playing in the standings?

Occasionally a player may attempt to enter a competition but isn't able to actually begin their entry due to technical difficulties. When this happens, the system will wait for some time (generally anywhere from 30-120 minutes) to give the player the opportunity to potentially begin their entry (via My Competitions). During this "grace" period a player may be listed as Not Started, Still Playing, or Currently Playing on the competition standings page, however, they may not actually be playing at that specific time.

In some cases you may see a particular player as Not Started, Still Playing, or Currently Playing in multiple entries. Please rest assured that players are not able to participate in multiple entries at the same time, even so, there would be little to no advantage to play multiple entries at the same time.

If the player fails to complete their entry then another player may take the open spot or the competition may close (depending on the parameters of the competition).
