    i'd love to compete in one of these, but since they occur so infrequently, i am uanble to do so.
    is there any way of getting advance notice of when these will be put on without having to check the ournaments link repeatedly?
    thanks.
    (by the way, my subpost under the championships thread was a mistake; sorry.)

    I have seen chess sites that send an e-mail to all active players, the fact that they are eligible or not is another matter. But it would help to inform the players and they could see when they went into the tourney area if they were eligible.

    The reason for site admin not implementing the e-mail notification is that Russ et-al want you to visit the site to check for new tourney's/play/post to demonstrate to the site sponsors/ advertisers that they can expect x amount of hits per member.
    To put in place an off site notification system would defeat that.
