JLP Profile

Why does it say I'm not a CBJ when I am? Why does it say my KCBS CBJ Status is pending?
When you first create an account or change your KCBS Membership expiration date the system must verify your CBJ status. This process may take a couple of days. In the meantime your KCBS CBJ Status will show as Pending and you will be treated as a non-CBJ which means that you might be delayed from signing up for all of the events you would like.

Why is it so important for me to keep my JLP Profile up to date?
It's imperative that you keep your JLP Profile up to date. The JLP uses the information you supply in your JLP Profile to track your CBJ status on behalf of the events you are signing up to Judge, Table Captain, or Volunteer. Every year when you renew your KCBS Membership, please remember to update your JLP Profile with your new expiration date.

What happens when my JLP Profile is out of date?
What the JLP knows about you with regards to CBJ status is based on the information in your JLP Profile. So when the current date is past the expiration date you have entered in your JLP Profile the JLP thinks you are expired and thus no longer a CBJ. If that happens you will lose list position. Non-CBJs have the lowest weight so they are at the bottom of the list. When you update the information in your JLP Profile, specifically your KCBS Membership expiration date, and that information gets verified you should regain your former list positions or close to them. Please note that the Verification Process may take a day or two.

What happens if my KCBS Membership expires after I've Locked In an event?
If you are signed up for any CBJ or CMJ only events you will be reminded via email to renew your KCBS Membership, and/or update your JLP Profile, and warned that failure to act will result in you being Unlocked from Events and your JLP Tickets will be revoked.

What are Discourteous Judge Points?
Discourteous Judge Points are negative weight earned by being discourteous. Discourteous Judge Points will negatively impact your future list positions. A discourteous judge is one who behaves in a manner that keeps others from having the opportunity to participate. See additional FAQs under List Position.
