Check your privacy settings! Having critical information hidden (such as your profile, name, level, or region/country) will make it much harder to be accepted to events or conferences. Having your info hidden also makes it harder to be contacted by potential employers for staffing opportunities, such as TOs looking for judges to staff their upcoming Regional Championship Qualifiers!
