Leave waiting list

Unfortunately, I put myself on both Rapid A and Rapid B waiting list. Can I leave the Rapid A one? Currently there are no other players on that one. I still have a bit to learn...

Engine/database rules

Also I'm uncertain what the Database/Engine/consulting books etc rules are...

Think I've just found that the rules for this are anything goes in the Netiquette section of help.

freestyle and seedings

While I am just another user of this forum, I can answer both of these questions as they come up regularly.

Hailes- My understanding is once you sign onto a waiting list, you cant leave it.

The reason being is players could enter, then see another player enter, then leave the tournament and rejoin in another slot to get a better colour, as your entry position determines your seeding in the round robin draw.

Also regarding chess engines etc, as long as you play as an individual, anything goes. Most of the players on here are using engines and it is fully endorsed.

Basically this is a freestyle chess site.

Thanks Garvin. That is very useful information and I now see why there is no withdraw option. However, I wonder if an exception could be made in this case - maybe a confused newbie might be allowed to screw up once? If not I'll try to manage all 8 games. M

Hello Mark. You just have been removed from Rapid A waiting list !

Best wishes, Thibault

Thanks - that's a relief. I'd have had some problems trying to run 10 games at once!? I'll try not to screw up again. BTW I really like the site. The tournament has just started! M
