Tournament updates - reminders and winners

Here's some tournament ideas.

1. In admincp set the number of hours that a tournament will "wait" for players to complete their game. (For example, 72 hours) - all in increments of 24 hours to make it easy.

2. Once a member joins a tournament, if 24 hours goes by and they haven't played their game, they get a reminder PM:

1st Reminder - Pingu Slap Tournament (name of tournament goes here - Pingu Slap my sample game )
This is a reminder that you have entered the Pingu Slap Tournament, but have not yet played your game. You have 72 more hours to play your game, or you will be disqualified from this tournament. Click here to go play your game!

then, after 24 more hours:

2nd Reminder - Pingu Slap Tournament
This is a reminder that you have entered the Pingu Slap Tournament, but have not yet played your game. You have 48 more hours to play your game, or you will be disqualified from this tournament. Click here to go play your game!


then, after 24 more hours:

3rd Reminder - Pingu Slap Tournament
This is a reminder that you have entered the Pingu Slap Tournament, but have not yet played your game. You have 24 more hours to play your game, or you will be disqualified from this tournament. Click here to go play your game!

then if they do not play, they get automatically disqualified, and receive this message:

Time-Out Disqualification - Pingu Slap Tournament
We are sorry to inform you that you have been disqualified from the Pingu Slap Tournament for failure to complete your game. If you are having technical difficulties with the arcade, please let us know!

This goes for each level in the tournament - so for the first game they have to play, the clock starts and they get their reminders - then if they play and win, and advance to the next level, the clock starts again, and the reminder pm's start again - until they either play or are disqualified - etc.. If they lose or are disqualified in some other way, then they get the normal notification pm


=======================================

Winner notification to all tournament members
>Would be nice if, once a tournament is over, all the participants in the tournament could recieve a notification PM
