Can't Join tournament?

The standard Class has the rating band 2000-2400?! Expert to MASTER when its supposed to be class A? On top of that... several 1900s are in the waitinglist .... yet I as a class A player also in the 1900s can't join this because I don't have an X rating for an A tournament? I'm confused...

Those high 1900s were over 2000 when they signed up.

well shouldn't it be called X/M not A... A implies A players can join.

... I guess there are two classes of A players -- standard and rapid.

class A / rapid A

There's no A players, only class A & rapid A tournaments. Indeed those 1900 players were over 2000 when they signed up, that's fair IMO and I see no other good way to deal with it.
