 +Everyone is welcome to join in our weekly Community races. These official races are held twice a week and are restreamed either on [[https://​www.twitch.tv/​FreeEnterprise|Free Enterprise]] for the Monday race or one of the [[https://​www.twitch.tv/​randomania|Randomania]] channels for the Friday race.  These races are coordinated through the Free Enterprise discord, and a guide to getting started with racing Free Enterprise on Discord can be found [[https://​docs.google.com/​document/​d/​18ab5ejhqr_iwQ0e6m04BB0Nf2dlFaO5mw6fpbWie3Q4/​|here]]. The Monday races start promptly at 8pm Eastern, and the Friday races start promptly at 10pm Eastern.

-Everyone is eligible ​to play in community races. ​These races are coordinated through SRL; a guide to getting started ​with racing Free Enterprise ​on SRL can be found at [[https://​goo.gl/pxSGdV]]Also see the [[Guides & Resources]] for more guides pertaining ​to races.+  * Join the discord! The #race and #​race-alerts channels will both have information about how to join an active race. If you're not sure which race is for the community race, ask in #​race. ​ Race rooms for community races are typically opened an hour before the start of the race. 
 +  * Community ​races **require** you to stream. Please do not turn on any stream delay. 
 +  * Please register your twitch stream ​with the racebot through the **!setstream** command. (You only have to do this once, unless you’ve changed your Twitch account) 
 +  * The restreamer will ask for volunteers to be on the restream. If you would like to volunteer, please have your stream output set to 720p or less, with a bitrate of 2500 or less.  Settings higher than that can overly tax the restreamer’s computer and the increased resolution won’t actually show up on the restream. 
 +  * The seed is rolled 10 minutes before the start timeThis is done by the restreamer or an admin 
 +  * The race is locked ​to new entrants shortly after the seed is rolled. This is done as a way to help the race start on time. 
 +  * When you have loaded the seed and are ready to start, use **!ready**. ​  
 +  * Any runners who have not used **!ready** by the start time of the race may be kicked from that particular race, so that the race can continue as planned. You are still welcome to play the seed alongside the rest of the runners, and welcome to join future ​races
 +  * Do not discuss the race outside of the #​race-spoilers channel while any runner has yet to complete the race.   
 +  * Setting your stream to **emote only** is encouraged while you are in the race.
  
-We are also interested in volunteers looking ​to help administer and run our race streams. Specifically,​ we look for: +Special Notes if you are chosen ​to be a featured ​runner on the restream:
-  * Commentators,​ who provide narration, context, and insight for race viewers; +
-  * Trackers, who observe and record each racers'​ progress so that viewers can follow along; +
-  * Restreamers,​ who combine the featured ​racers'​ individual streams and audio commentary to deliver ​the master stream.+

 +  * Turn off stream alerts. 
 +  * Turn off any stream delay.  
 +  * Please set your stream output set to 720p or less, with a bitrate of 2500 or less. Settings higher than that can overly tax the restreamer’s computer and the increased resolution won’t actually show up on the restream. 
 +  * Please have game sounds/music on, if possible. 
 +  * Have a save from a previous game loaded and wait on an world map 
 +  * The restreamer will let you know when you’re cropped and audio is balanced, and then you can load the seed when it’s available. 
 +  * If the restreamer asks you to adjust your sound levels or video output settings, please do so. If you cannot, the restreamer may have to choose another participant to be on the restream in your place. 
 +  * Once you’re cropped, do not change your layout. 
 +  * When you have finished the race, make sure to press A through any remaining dialogue windows until the credits roll, and then keep streaming until the restreamer lets you know you are good to cut.
  
 +Also see the [[Guides & Resources]] for more guides pertaining to races, including our generalized race rules. There you can find information like allowed emulators and consoles, more information about the racebot, and more.
