Challonge will not require payment from any legacy Challonge Organization Administrators in order to maintain associated subdomain(s).
Anyone that secured a Challonge subdomain prior to February 15, 2019 will be given full access to their subdomain at no additional cost indefinitely.
Thank you @urzo and everyone for the feedback about the recent email we sent to existing Challonge Organization Administrators detailing the launch of Pro Communities.
Please Note: This entire post is only applicable to those hosting tournaments from a subdomain such as evo.challonge.com. This does not impact any individually hosted tournaments from a user account such as https://challonge.com/users/corpuschristismash.
In summary, we goofed up. Here are some ways others put it…
Although Challonge has been in existence for 10 years it is very much a start-up and start-ups make mistakes. We are sorry for this one, extremely grateful for the feedback, and we hope this change makes it right.
We are on a mission to keep people playing and competing together no matter the sport, game, or activity. We’re thrilled to continue to provide a convenient place to create and store tournaments. We’re further motivated to enable communities to simplify operations, communication, discovery, and more.
