    I like to support this site by quite often offering 'Open Invite' games only to RHP subscribers, but still non-subscribers accept my invite.
    We can set certain parameters, how about one of them being we only accept invites from those who are signed up to the site?

    What is the difference? Can`t you beat non-subscribers?

    Non-subscribers are supporting the site by reading the sponsor's adverts.

    As far as I know, you can't play on this site unless you do sign up.


    If you just want to avoid provisional rated players set the rating limit to something [eg. >500 or below 2300] then they cannot accept them.

    So, how about a couple more tickboxes on our "Challenges" page:

    Available for unsolicited challenges from subs [] with a min/max rating of [____]
    Available for unsolicited challenges from non-subs [] with a min/max rating of [____]

    as well as the ones on the "Open Invites" page:

    Offer to subs only []
    Offer to non-subs only []

    These "6 only" guys are just to fast for me... I sometimes like to think for a couple of days before moving.

    That's all, just think. Not post crap and spam in the forums and whine and winge while waiting for someone to move...

    You don't look at the open invites? Where do you go to start new games? I'm a new subscriber myself, and still create open invites and go to that menu to start games. Do you go in tournaments, or what?

    I worry that my level of play may not be good enough for what something like a tournament would demand. I don't want to waste a bunch of peoples' time by playing in a tournament that I shouldn't be in.

    Where do I find out what a "banded" tournament is? Is a band like a mini-clan?

    Banded is where it's for players within a specific rating band.

    So when the title of a tournament is "August 2006 Banded 3/14 1250-1400", is the title redundant, or am I missing something?

    You're missing something.
