    Member invitational tournaments
    Where the members invite those they want to join, unlike the open
    or banded tournaments they would not count as tournament wins,
    since established accounts or a fair and balance tournament could
    not be enforced. They would be like playing an unrated game, it would
    simply be a non-tournament victory, victory.

    A very good idea!

    But why would be unrated? Why not have it as a ordinary tournament?

    It is very messy story to try to organize a 'fake' tournament. I tried it once within my clan. You have to give precise instructions for the participants for making them challenge each other in order to let everyone play to eachother, on as black, one as white.

    To make an invitational tournament where people are invited to the tournament, with a tournament leader, would be a fantastic featue at RHP.

    They do not have to unrated, I was only saying they could not
    be counted toward tournament wins because they could be fixed
    to setup someone real easy. So in that vein they would be like
    playing a non-rated game.

    I agree, this could be a fun feature. As a chess club coach/sponsor this could help me set up tournaments among my students who use this site.

    We could have clan tournaments where the clans can on occasion play
    against each other on their own team too. This would be a nice
    feature as well.

    Site Anouncements might just be an even better place to check.

    Cool, didn't know these were coming. Hopefully they will not just
    be limited to clan leaders, but if so, oh well.
