Why the free Vega version is not supported by this site?

The access is restricted to registered users of Vega to let this site to stay safe for the time being. Unknown users could pubblish rubbish tournaments and spoil the site.

I am a chessplayer. Can I register to the desired tournament?

Yes, of course. Just locate the tournament of your interest and fill in the form giving your email. A confirmation email is sent to you.

What does mean the field "interest" in the search form?

The word "interest" has 3 options: International, National and local, depending by the audience of the chess event. If the players that can participate in at least one of the sections of your event are from a foreign country, then your event is "international". In case the players that can join the event are restricted to players of a given federation/country, then the event is "national". The event is "local" if the participation is limited to players belonging to a limited area of a given federation/country (club, province, region,...). Please make sure to assign the correct "interest" flag to your event because the misuse may cause the user to be banned. The correct labeling of your event will permit an easy search from the players interested in joining the event.

What it is the difference between "Event" and "Section" in the create event page?

A chess "event" may have several "sections" or tournaments. Some time a chess event has only one section/tournament. Once you have created an event you must add at least a section/tournament or your event will not appear in any search.
