A brief summary about what are E-Points was very necessary, I've just added some explanations and links in Help section and terms and conditions (Membership). See the FICGS chess freestyle tournaments rules (http://www.ficgs.com/membership.html#chess_freestyle) and this summary about what are E-Points (http://www.ficgs.com/membership.html#epoints)...

Feel free to ask for more explanations if something's still unclear... About the freestyle cup :

"FIDE GM & IM, FICGS / ICCF GM, SM & IM are invited to enter the waiting list for free until one week before the start of the tournament ! .. Please just send a message to webmaster through My account page to register. You may be asked to send a copy of your passport or ID card.

An extra fee, usually 30% of the entry fee, will be added to the entry fee 7 days before the start of the tournament. "

Best wishes, Thibault
