Handling title verification requests

Isaac Levy edited this page Jul 21, 2018 · 21 revisions

In order for a Lichess user account to be given a FIDE or NM title, the user must fill out the title verification form on (now also requiring a selfie with the identity document). All title requests should be funneled into this form.

When the provided information is verified, the correct title can be set by a Lichess moderator and the player will be informed automatically by email. If the request is rejected, the user has to be informed manually.
