    I signed up as a pickup player, now what?

    You should have seen this message when you signed up:

    nan, thanks for registering as pickup player!

    Once the participating teams are known, your ad will be displayed in this section of the website so that the teams can pick you up.

    If not, please signup again and let us know if you're getting an error message.

    If you did get this message, then you'll have to wait until the teams are selected and there will be a list of all the teams looking for players and players looking for teams.

    Our team is registered. now what?

    You are almost there.

    Once you've registered your team, your registration is still pending. Each contact will have received an email whereby you need to click on our link to VERIFY your email address. When both contacts have confirmed, your submission is no longer pending and your team is officially registered.

    Once you confirm your email address, you receive another email with a SECRET-LINK that you can use to EDIT your registration data. For example to update the number of players that will attend or to change the contact persons.

    In case one of the email addresses was wrong, the other person can still change this address using the SECRET-LINK that they receive after confirming their own address.

    We have players that need an invitation for a visa. What should we do?

    Fear not. We have a template that we can email you, then you can fill in your personal details and submit at your local embassy. Shoot us an email and we'll send you the template.

    A word to the wise... Do this as soon as possible. In the past, we've called Russian embassies to help expedite visas but it was to no avail.

    How can I add a tournament to the team page?

    On your team detail page, click on "Add tournament...". This will bring you to the correct page on leaguevine. Log into leaguevine (registering an account is easy and free). Click on "Add Tournament".

    Fill in the tournament name, dates and info, click Save. Then, click on "Add Team" on the right and add all participating teams to this tournament. When entering team names, the auto-completion function will show you the current teams of this season. Make sure you pick the teams from the current season (those are not followed by anything in brackets).

    Once the tournament has been played, you can also add the final rank of the teams. The data in the "Road to Windmill" table on the windmill page is pulled automatically from Leaguevine. Note that you have to wait up to 15min for the update.

    I want to run my own Swissdraw tournament! Please help!

    Please check this wikipedia page for more information. Please contact us in case the page does not answer your question.

    I also want such nice announcement screens. How have you made them?

    We are using the great info-beamer.com hosted service run by Florian Wesch, thanks a lot for the support! The windmill package is heavily based on the 32C3 package developped by Florian. All the code is available on github.
