In the newest Codex: Eldar, it says nothing about having a certain amount of point to take Eldrad in a battle. Now all of a sudden it says on the website that you can only play him in 2,000 or more points. What do I go off of? I know that the website is a pretty recent addition because I have looked at it a lot when buying stuff.
The codex is always right until a FAQ says otherwise.
The people who write for the website (and WD) live in their own little world (most likely outdated in this case).

You may be looking at older posts, or people posting off older info. In older Codexes of most races, the special characters usually had a point minimum and sometimes required your opponent's consent. Per the new codexes like the newer Eldar one, special caharacters have been supposedly more "balanced" so they are intended for all games. I did not see any minimum on Eldrad in the new codex, so he should be legal to use in any size game if you can afford to spend the points on him. I personally think anything under 2250 you may be better off with just a normal farseer and spending more points on regular units. Eldrad is more useful when in bigger games when he can effectively use all three powers per turn, and have the units around him to take advantage of those effects.
