Account inquiries come to the accounts@scrabbleplayers.org email address, and many can be handled in a routine manner as described below on this page.

Most of the commands currently require shell prompt access. If you do not know what this is, refer the issues to John Chew. Arguments to shell commands spelled in CAPS should be replaced by appropriate values.

This is a living document; the contents are updated as procedures are refined and developed.
