    I cannot figure out how to create a IFPA player account or profile on https://www.ifpapinball.com/ . Everything I read about and look at points me to this page ( https://www.ifpapinball.com/user-profile/ ), however to complete the form it says I already need to have a "Player ID". Does anyone know where I create this "Player ID"? This is a process of creating of creating a user, then a player page, then something else? Sorry, I'm likely overlooking looking something, however I find the site hard to follow. I really appreciate your help.

    I think they create it for you once someone has submitted a tournament result for you for the first time, provided they have been given your email address.

    Okay, great. I played in my first tournament last night.

    Chances are you can look up your name, if they spelled it right, and then you claim the account and register that way

    The results have to be submitted/approved, id give it a week.

    If you have a duplicate name though, you may have to contact IFPApinball using the website or Pinside.

    Q: How do I become an official IFPA member?
    A: Simply play in any IFPA endorsed event and once those results are submitted into the IFPA by the tournament director you will officially become a world ranked player.

    keep searching your name and once you see it you will have your player #

    Hopefully the TD spelled your name right

    also if you know a player that attended same tournament you can search their name & see if the tournament you were in together is listed assuming they have played a few tournaments.

    Don’t search for your name. Find the event you played in. Then find your name in the standings and click on it to take it to your profile then register that. Then you can fix spelling or other errors by emailing the IFPA.

    The whole IFPA account system is kind of odd. Once you have played in a tournament you can click on your name and it using your player number. You do not register a name and password, to update the account you just submit the information to them and they update it manually. Glad to see you are excited about being ranked though!
