    Nice tournament, but I'm hating my rating spike now; how I wish I could be in the 0-1299 tourney!

    I'll have to pass this time. The band is far to large for me and I don't need the extra games. Sorry.

    Once again I entered a banded tournament to find the first player on the list is a provisional 1390+ in the 0-1299 banded group. Where is the fairness?

    I sent feedback suggesting them a while ago. Chris said it was an interesting idea, but haven't heard much about it since.

    I think it should be a priority class A thing too, by now.

    We just need some volunteers (I don't mind being one) to inspect a certain band just before the start of a tournament. Each volunteer determines if a certain player once had a rating according to the graph of, say, 100 or 200 points above the band restriction.

    My rating has been climbing from 1100 to almost 1400! Half of them I got from timeouts. Hmmmmm, got a feeling I'm going to be kicked in this banded Tournament...

    Not if you protest, and make clear why you are potesting.

    Only 19 spots left in the 1300-1599 tournament!

    Why do we still have a p1400+ and a p1500+ in the 0 -1299 band?

    I sent feedback about this as soon as the tournament started but am yet to hear back about it.
