To streamline running tourneys, the Challonge page will be the focal point. To participate you must have a Challonge account. The site is very convenient, notifying you by email of rounds and opponents. Discussion here is encouraged, but organization will occur there.

Maybe you should cap signups to 16, or add another round of swiss?

Hm? Why so, what's wrong?

Edit: The number of rounds adjusts to the number of players.

I see.

If log_2(num_players) > num_rounds, then there can be two undefeated players.

Yeah this is not an issue. Swiss tourneys on Challonge (and in general) always run at minimum the number of rounds to have 1 undefeated player. I guess with intentional draws in some tournaments 2 players can have the same record. But there are a bunch of different tiebreaks in that case anyway.
