Player: United  adminChessHere Moderator Subject: Ratio Rule for Number of Players on CC Teams

Please see updated FAQ's for ratio on teams. Thanks!!!

Q: How many members can I have on my team?

In order to create a team you have to be a premium member. But, there are a few teams out there that were created before we decided on this rule and we are not going to eliminate an existing team. However, we are implementing a new rule regarding all Correspondence chess teams. For every team there has to be a ratio of 1-6, so there has to be a premium member for every 6 non-premium members.

If you maintain this ratio as a team captain there is no limit on how many members you can have! But if you have 1 premium member and 6 non-premium members then you will not be able to add another member unless he/she is a premium member or someone on your team becomes a premium member.

I am glad to see that most captains have been able to meet the ratio of 1 premium member to 6 non-premium members.

But some of you still do not meet the proper ratio. I will send you a PM today to all captains whose team will be moved to the 'InActive List' within 48 hours if they do not comply.

I will explain in detail what you can do to save your team. Once it is moved to the 'InActive List' yu will no longer be able to play team games - nor will your team be listed!

I want to thank the captains who brought their teams back to the legal limit of 1 premium member for every 6 non-premium members.

Some of them did it by kicking off members of their team who hadn't even logged in for over a year!

Ok, so we encouraged the team captains to take control of their members and clean up their teams. That's a good thing because other team captains trying to issue team challenges could have included members from the other team who were no longer active.

Unfortunately, some teams were left with an inactive captain. There was nothing that could be done for these team members because their captain became inactive or refused to meet the ratio standard.
These 3 teams have had to be removed:

Sleepless Knights
The Rookies

NOW is the best time to think of starting up a new team! That's because all challenges will run much smoother now.

Best regards,
